Hey guys.

I am planning to apply at Scheller and am having some trouble with the second essay question in which we need to list down 10 facts about ourselves. My concern is that the character limit is set to 1000 (including spaces?). Any idea how to go about it?

roykabir772 look up essay advice given by admissions consultants on Duke's essay 25 Random Things. There's heaps of it. And there is a 25 things sample essay on my sample essay page.

Hello MBAPrepCoach,

Thanks for your response and the sample essay. I went through those resources earlier itself. My concern is that I feel that I will not be able to put across the facts in those limited characters. I was hoping to give in some details rather than just writing single sentences. Fuqua keeps a 2-page limit for its 25 Random Things essay which gives some flexibility I suppose. I wonder how much one-liners about ourselves would help.

Hey Narenn,
Thank you so much. :)

I have completed my application. Waiting for my recommenders now. Does Scheller consider the application if my recommenders complete the recommendations after the deadline?

I am looking the same information. As per their current students recommenders can complete the recommendations a couple of days post the deadline but I haven't received any news from the adcoms yet.

Both my recommenders are facing issue with the recommendation portal.

Apparently they are supposed to create an account at some website but they are unable to find any option to create the same. Even they raised tickets but ended u receiving the same link again.
I am yet to get any response regarding this from the adcoms.

Even I received a similar confirmation from the adcom (Emily Sharkey). Along with that, she informed that if the issue persists with the portal, the recommenders can share the recommendations directly with her and she can update our application.

Not much time. My recommender faced two issues while uploading letter. But both were resolved by following the steps shared by tech support.

Sounds good. I'll wait for a couple of days and see if the issues get resolved. Else I will reach out to you in case of any help.

All the best for your application. :)
