guys,

for the question on employment history in the application form, do we need to capture our employment record on separate sheets for each ROLE held or each COMPANY we worked in?

I don't think so. I think they expect the complete history of every employer you worked for, on a single page. One of their headings read Job Title(s).

Submitted my Round 1 application just now !!!
I am relieved, but I am also submitting Duke and the deadline for Duke and Tepper is same - Oct 27th. So weekend is still going to be busy.
My recommenders have not yet submitted though. I hope they will in the next 48 hrs.

As per the instructions in the online app, we should include all the details per each position.

suppose if you held 2 positions in a company, for each position you will repeat the following information.


"On separate sheets of paper, you must account for all time since high school graduation, in reverse chronological order, starting with your current / most recent position. This should include:

All full-time positions (including Peace Corps, military services, volunteer work, etc.). For each position, you must include the information below.All part-time/summer positions requiring more than ten hours per week. For each position, you must include the following information:
Dates of employment
Firm/Employer's name
Address
Nature of firm's activities (very brief description)
Your job title(s)
Responsibilities
Starting and ending salaries
Average number of hours worked per week
Reason for leaving"

Yes, that's how I had interpreted it as. But it kinda doesn't make sense as they ask you the reason for quitting. In each case I've mentioned 'Not Applicable - Promoted to a higher role'. Will leave it at that.

My recommenders too have kept me waiting. Will wait and submit only after they upload their letters.

Ok, I see your point. And so I am confused now. :shock: I just noticed the label Job Title(s) and so thought that they want us to list all titles of an employer in the same section.

Since I have already submitted my app, I will call up Adcom tomorrow and request to send a new document. I hope they will accommodate.

Honestly, I don't see why they are asking this for. I have provided almost the same information that I have in my resume. Do you guys have anything different. The only thing that my resume doesn't have is Salaries, hours and reason for leaving

Not really. Apart from Starting/Ending salary and the number of hours put in, I haven't added anything new in this section.

I am assuming that if you have sent these two things electronically, you don't need to resend them by physical mail. At least that is how it was with the other colleges I have applied to.

Under Downloadable Forms, the "Applicant Certification" sheet is listed and it notes:
"This signature form is required to be downloaded, printed and signed by all students. Mailing this in to Carnegie Mellon is a required step of the MBA application process"

I'm going to be sending that in today, hopefully they aren't so strict that it will push my app into round 2.

I'm also nervously waiting for 1 recommender to come through...

Guys,

Does anyone know that is the acceptance date of Tepper - Round 1 ? The information on the website just mentions app deadline and decision date.

No clue about the rate... but usually R1 is higher than the following rounds, so will be higher than the overall rate for sure.
