Wow, I am surprised with what I pulled off on the PPT in the course of 2 hours. I'm gonna upload this tonight and hopefully make a few edits to the essays tomorrow morning.

I'm optimistic. Let's hope for the best.

Good luck to everyone!!!


Isn't Chicago one of your top 2 choices? Just curious because it seems like you really completed these essays under a time crunch and was wondering if other schools have moved up your list and necessitated allowing less time for Chicago.

I'm just lazy, or rather "I tend to work well under pressure and deadlines" as I like to tell myself.

Chicago is my top choice.

Going to school in this economic environment however, is not my top choice. Look at the Dow today. ugh.

Where else are you applying?

I typically follow the "works well under pressure" model as well but seeing everyone on this site who is so ahead of the game has sort of scared me into getting it together before the last minute. As a result I got Chicago turned in last night and will have Kellogg turned in tomorrow night. As if 1 day before the deadlines is considered "early." :lol:

I am in for R1 as well--I submitted 10/14. I was an R3 waitlist last year (well, last May), so I'm hopeful that applying earlier will boost my odds just a little. Incidentally, I noticed that almost everyone hated essay 2 this year. That makes me feel better about hating it. The "go against popular opinion" question makes sense for Chicago, but "Why do I think I was accurate in predicting other people's reactions?"... yuck. I guess I need to be more introspective or something. :? Good luck, friends.

I'll apply to Tuck in the November round. If I get into Chicago, I'll apply to H/S/W in R2. If I get dinged from Chicago, I'll probably apply to H/W/Sloan and maybe 1 more.

I try not to pay much attention to other people's timelines nor the schools/number of schools they're applying to. I'd go insane if I did. We have some GMATClubbers who are really on top of it this year.

Does anyone know if we can have a title slide for the third essay, in addition to the 4?

All I would put is name, "university of chicago essay 3", and a title otherwise i don't have any sort of introduction.

Thanks

I just put a small text box at the top of the first slide.

That's a good question. I would call the admissions office.

Did you not get the email from Rose, that upto 2 weeks after deadline, they will accept recommendations?
So, yes, it is perfectly alright for the rec to be late. Of course I told my recommenders a couple of days late is ok (not weeks)

Greetings from Chicago GSB! With our first round application deadline less than a week away -- Wednesday, October 15th - we know that many of you are hard at work putting the finishing touches on your application. In light of this, I want to remind you that my staff and I are here to help in any way we can should you have questions of any kind. Beyond contacting us directly, I am attaching some information that might also be helpful to you:

1. Getting an insider's perspective on the evaluation process may be helpful, so please take a minute to review the tips in this month's GSB Newsletter as well as some of my most recent blog entries.

2. Recommendation letters are accepted up to two full weeks after the deadline. If your recommender needs a few extra days to put the final touches on your letter -- that is fine, and will not adversely affect your round 1 application submission.

3. If you are planning to retake the GMAT and still want to apply in round one, please let us know the date of your new test in the optional essay. If we do not receive your updated score within a month after the deadline we will use the score you applied with or hold your application for evaluation in a subsequent round.

Good luck and let us know how we can help.

Warm regards, Rose

OK my second recommendation was just submitted! However, my status is the following:

Your application is currently incomplete. We are missing your letters of recommendation.

Recommendations Verified by Office: No


Any idea what the verification process is and how long it takes to verify LoRs?
