Ideally IST should be 9:30 hours ahead. So you could submit by the next morning 9:30 AM. However, its very risky to wait till the last moment as the site might crash or become very slow during the last hours.

I am dreading a waitlist result the most. Either let me in or show me the door lol.

I'm not a reapp, but I spent my freshman year of undergrad at PSU before dropping out (with a 1.8 :cry: )

Hopefully they don't hold it against me 10 years later :-)

Ha ha let's hope for the best man. BTW I gave my interview today. As a re app, the main focus was on what happened in this one year. Went pretty well with little bit hiccups. December looks very far :(

I had a word with adcom regarding this, they were working on some changes in the interview system, hence the delay, but they said that the interview invites will start going out from next week !

Same here! They are giving a great importance to the video essays. Hence, my advice to the future applicants is that be prepared for the video essays and avoid using filler words as much as possible.

Hi,
Very strange. The average GMAT is around 660 for Smeal. I am finishing up with the application for Smeal, just the video essay is left. Any advice on how to approach it? Are there any response based questions as well?
