Someone was busy updating the Tepper MBA website - they've posted an interesting pic of the incoming class (which speaks a thousand words or something like that), and there's new pics throughout that look like high def compared to some of the old ones they had...

The online applications won't be available until Sep 1st, and you can't request an interview until Sep. 8th. I kind of wish that they'd make all of these things available at an earlier date so that the adcom can gain that much more insight into just who is serious about applying; I'm ready to begin the application and schedule an interview today...

Many schools have some sort of 'Contribution' essay.Basically list out your interests and how they will help your classmates.In another way,show them what you bring to the table.

Another Q (sorry for bombarding):

1. Describe an obstacle you have faced in your professional or academic life. How did you overcome this obstacle and how did it foster your development?

Just to confirm this is not the right place to talk about weaknesses, right ?

For me,how it fostered your development needs more space followed by rest.

Tepper released the profile for incoming class.

Class size is roughly the same whereas avg GPA went up and avg GMAT score went down,not substantially though.

Also the % of women went up.

Is it ok to write an obstacle which is like 10 years old?

I am having real hard time in finding any substantial one
