Hey guy,
Did anyone clarify the resume limit with adcoms yet? I have issue understanding what count up to 50 lines.
"The résumé should not be more than one page in length (up to 50 lines)"
- Does the 50 lines include white lines, include name, address, email line at top or just the content only?
- If I managed to keep the resume at one page but with 3-4 lines more than 50. Could I consider it obey the guideline?

Thanks. I had to make a few changes to include it.

Yikes I'm wondering the same thing! Can someone answer this please? Mine right now including all of the white lines and info at the top is 65 lines, which I'm now realizing may be a problem. Thanks everyone!

I tried to call Adcoms line directly to ask about this but I forgot today is weekend in the US. So question unanswered. :roll:

I managed to get my resume to 61 lines in one page without modifying margins or fonts. Should I still cut it further to 50 lines?

What font size are you using? I have 51 lines and it still seems pretty squished.

I would guess cutting to get closer to 50 would be a good idea. At a certain point it gets difficult to read.

I did not change the size from the sample resume either (size 10). Did you include headers & white lines in your count?

Yes, I used size 11 font and included the headers and section splits in my count.

I didn't really use any "blank" lines because I used the line spacing options to increase or decrease the white space between lines on certain sections.

I know at one point the resume was really crammed and playing with the white spaces took some time to get it reasonable looking. I also cut some material out and combined some bullet points to make sure the important aspects or accomplishments of certain jobs shined through.

Guess the forum is a little quiet as compared to previous years. Or maybe its just a round 1 thing. :roll:

Submitted my application late last night. Man it feels good to get it out of the way. I wish everyone luck in their applications. Does anyone know how long it generally takes before they invite you to interview (assuming that they don't ding you)?

According to this post http://gmatclub.com/forum/sloan-mit-class-of-2016-calling-all-applicants-151314-180.html#p1271188 the interview invites come 4-5 weeks from submission.

Good Luck to everyone!

I like how streamlined Sloan's application is relative to some other schools.

Good luck all. Cannot wait for the overall cycle to end. Just submitting for Sloan gave me a taste for it.
