This is a pretty basic question, but I didn't see specific instructions on the application. For the extracurricular activities section, did you leave the "To:" date field blank if the activity is still ongoing (i.e. from: January 2011 to: present)?

Transcripts
"Transcripts of all academic work completed at the baccalaureate/undergraduate level and beyond, whether or not for credit or a degree, are required at the time your application is submitted. Grades or marks may be self-reported on our online transcript template, with official documents required upon admissions and matriculation.

Should you be admitted, you will be required to provide official transcripts of all previous academic work to verify the information provided in the template. If there are discrepancies between the self-reported academic work and official records, the offer of admission will be withdrawn. Offers of admission are not binding until academic records are verified."


What is their online transcript template? How are you guys submitting your transcript?

To ensure the quick processing of your application, we are no longer accepting mailed
transcripts at the time of application. Instead, please submit your transcript(s) as a scanned
document or use the excel template, found in the downloadable forms section to the left. Use
the upload feature, provided at each school listing, to submit your self-reported transcript(s).


Where can I find the Excel Template mentioned above? I cannot find the downloadable forms. Thanks in advance for the help.

To check on the status of your applicaiton, check your personal activity page. If you have any questions, direct them to help@applyweb.com and please include your order-id:…."

Has anyone got any further information about interview invitation timelines or any mention about the fact that application was submitted in Round 1?

Nada. Just that email. I am assuming after the deadline they will send something out.

Did anyone notice that in the online application, the Academic Background section asks you to list the awards won during college, and the Personal Information section again asks you to "List the most significant college, university, community and professional awards, honors or scholarships you have received."

How did you guys approach this?

I listed College awards twice.

PS I submitted! Done all my aps. Now, the waiting game.

I would say Wharton was probably my strongest ap, Kellogg the weakest. We will see if admissions agrees.

Naija,

We all are.

The application process is overwhelmingly stressful for the schools that we want the most. The best we all can do right now is keep our focus and do the best we can on the application.

All the best!

Quick question:

The TOEFL section of the application states that "please explain this in the optional essay". This sort of makes the optional essay mandatory! Do we really need to add a note in the optional essay for this?

So I need a quick opinion! I have spent weeks perfecting my Wharton app. Those who applied may have felt the frustration of not being able to view in PDF. I used Chrome on a mac to finish the app. I hit submit and viewed the final PDF application. I felt great about everything until.....uughhh...under work experience I saw sections for "key responsibilities" that were left blank. I swear I have been in the app dozens of times and I never saw these in my browser.

That being said, should I call the school or should I bet on the strength of the rest of the application? As you know the deadline looms...it is especially frustrating since this is a top target program for me, I have a strong GMAT, experience, recommendations and extracurriculars, plus I visited the campus from 300 miles away. I really hope I didn't blow it big time!!!!
