"The time has come," the Walrus said,
"To talk of many things:
Of shoes--and ships--and sealing-wax--
Of cabbages--and kings--
And why the sea is boiling hot--
And whether pigs have wings."

Am getting last minute jitters...I checked everything, paid the money, the took a printout before submission and found a couple of errors in my resume...re-uploaded documents....again found an error....am rechecking again..

Hell. There seems to be something wrong with the HBS online app. I'm not able to upload files...This is not good.

Is that problem due to overload of last min submissions?

Thanks. Is normal? I would have guessed two at most places. Do they specify if at least 1 should be non-work related?

No. They prefer all three to be professional. Moreover, this may come as a surprise (It was quite surprising to me), they prefer to get all three of the recos from supervisors or clients -- Peer recos are not encouraged.

Hmm...that could be tough for me. I don't work with a client-company and there's only 2 people that I report to, directly or indirectly, in the company (both of which I had planned to use already).

Do they specify that supervisors need to be relatively recent? I'll be applying next year and the only other supervisor I'll have had will have been gone for well over 2 years.
