I guess you have submitted marks sheet. You need to submit transcript which explains to any university how to interpret your scores.[/quote]

So the courses I did and marks I scored in each course is mentioned on the marksheet. The aggregate score is in percent. Should I get a letter from university that says the grading score is 100?[/quote]

Nope that is not enough, you need to get university transcripts. The University transcripts will have your percentage scores and a direction to interpret those scores. For example, my university provides two pages transcript. 1st Page provides percentage scored and 2nd page tells how to interpret those scores and what will be the ranking of those grades. For example, my university provides grades as First class with distinction. When this grade is awarded etc.

Your marksheet will not be enough and you need to ask for university transcripts. Normally you might get originals in sealed envelope and one zerox copy (depends on university to university). Once you get an admit from Tepper, you need to send the sealed copy of the transcripts to the Tepper adcom for further verification.[/quote]

Thanks a lot for the help!

Along with the mark sheets, I had submitted a degree proof that states my details, dates and that my graduated in First Division. So what I can do is to get a letter that states both the percent and its classification in the Division system. Would that suffice?

You should ask for university transcript which is acceptable by US universities.

Last year 37% of the applicants were interviewed, this year, with less than one week into December, only 20% got invited? There has to be at least one more wave coming.

I am wondering if there is a mandate to bump up their average GMAT score atleast for the internationals. I doubt if any further wave would be on the way. It's highly unlikely that they interview 20% of the candidates in 2 months time and another 10 - 20 % in 15 days. At max, I believe a few calls amounting to 5% at max. Not more than that. Just speculating but this is a calculated speculation though. :-D

anubhavmax welcome back! :) good analysis! As per the last year's thread ... there were few invites in December as well. So I guess you are right that few more invites will go out in the first week of December, but a second wave is highly unlikely. Again you never know there might be one!

Every University has details of how to get an Öfficial transcript"on its website. It normally involves an application, with details of which School/ College you want it addressed to and payment of fees. They give you a summary of the course, list of papers with marks in each semester-wise and a table indicating how to interpret the grades.
This is different from your mark sheet and hence sending the documents issued to you on course completion DO NOT meet the B School requirements for admission.
You need to forward the ófficial transcript'from your University, but most Schools ask for it when admission is confirmed. Perhaps in some cases where the documents you upload are not adequate, they call for transcripts in advance of admission decision.
Hope that clarifies your doubts.

All the best for the decision guys. You all will realize 2 weeks is quite a short time once you are experiencing Tepper minis. It will just fly by.

I guess it's curtains for those who haven't received a reply yet in Round-1.
Does anyone know if they are even remotely likely to send invites now?

natarajansrikrishnan - brother ,don't get disheartened. Those who have not yet received an invite(including me) may very well be wait listed and receive an invite along with R2 people. I am not sure whether CMU follows this strategy, but Anderson does this for sure.

Yes, CMU - Tepper also follows the same strategy. Sorry guys couldn't get any meeting with adcom in time.

37% of the Round-oners interviewed last year and only 21% for this year? Are people just not updating their status or what?

This is ridiculous, assuming people are all diligently updating their status, then it means either tepper will have to send out invites, interview, make decision, and notify the candidates within 6 business days, or just that 20% less people are getting even an interview this year.

Re-posting the comment which was made on some other school's thread-

"I think this has happened with a few schools now. I believe we may be seeing a substantial increase in applicants and many of those applicants are not on this forum."

This is very much possible.

That's unfortunate....well chances are I won't go to Tepper so there is already one seat for the waitlisted candidates lol

Don't give up hope! Maybe some will be considered in R2 if there are just too many to be processed?

Very true. Even I believe that quite a few candidates are not on this forum, hence the low count. Also, there are a few people who are there on this forum but do not update their application status, so unfortunately the statistics might not be a true reflection of the applicant pool :(
