Guys,

Could somebody give me the link with the full curriculum of GSB? I can't seem to find it on the GSB website. i know Ryhme gave a link, but it soesn't seem to work anymore. Help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks a lot...


Here you go.

http://programs.chicagogsb.edu/curriculum/

I sometimes wish all links and attachments could be posted on the first post of the thread, esp a long thread like this so they are easier to find. Would the mods be able to do that?

Thanks


I found that page, but every time I click on "course descriptions" it doesn't work - very weird. Maybe because I'm using Safari?

Another question: how did people tackle essay 2? Did you treat it like a "hero" essay, like you see qualitites in him that you apply to your own life, or did you treat it differently?

Thanks for help...

I wrote about a person, being whom for a day could be a valuable experience from the point of view of my career goals (a certain CEO).
I really wanted to write about another person who I genuinely admire (an astronomer and a writer) but when I got down to it, realized I couldn't get past banalities about how great he was and how valuable experience that would be... but not into specifics :|

I explored teamwork, a very specific day from a very well known man from the 18th century, yeah I know that that school just around the corner in Evanston is much well known for it, but hey, that's me...

Any R1'ers or R2'ers like me...Your suggestions are appreciated

Did any of you guys repeat extracurriculars during college or your interests in expanded resume and your PPT slides? Is this a good approach....

greg,

I was going to ask the exact question. The ppt needs to capture "you", but between the application form, expanded resume & the slides, I feel there will be some overlap.

After reading posts on Essay2, I am worried I might have chosen the wrong approach. I chose to write about "why I wanted to be in his shoes" rather than "what I can achieve in a day as this person"? I am also using examples from my past experience in this essay.

"In a day" part is definitely important, but so is "why" part.

What are your concerns about the resume template?


Not sure it makes sense to put on the wiki page for GSB. It's not really anything about the school. It's a nice to have when applying.

When I think about it, my essay 2 is completely the "why". Not sure if that's the right approach.

Ok. This is a question about the dots and commas in the extended Chicago resume. I have attached both word version and the original Chicago pdf. In pdf they put the dots only at the end of each work section. Should we put the dots at the end of extracurriculars, for example? Do we need to put commas or dots in the list of functions in a specific organization? What do you think about it? What are the rules? :? :shock: :shock: :cry: :shock: I am dazed and confused... as usual :lol:

I think its important to follow the resume format. At the same time I think we can be flexible with specific formatting etc. I have elaborated my extracurriculars as obviously i could not put them in just comma separated format.

Without really knowing exactly what you are talking about, I'd venture you are overthinking it. Commas or dots, whatever. The point of the extended resume, at least from what I can tell, is just to get those 8 things on there - as long as the information is there and its easy to read, I don't think they'll care.

Hi all,

I have a couple of last minute question, before hitting the submit button :
- Is it okay to convert the PowerPoint into PDF ? My presentation is in portrait mode, and I was just worried that they would (for some obscure reason) want to be sure that it is made with Powerpoint
- Should I include significant internships in the expanded resume? I have tons of international experience under that section, and would like it to be visible...

Thanks a lot for your feedback,

To all those of you still polishing essays and application form, hang tight, we are almost there !

Cheers

Hi Cereals,

1) Yes. I converted mine to PDF before I uploaded it, and checked with AdCom that it was ok. She said that was fine.
2) I did. I had one post-college significant internship, and I felt it was better to put it on than leave it off. I put significant college internships in the section where you have to list activites during school.
