Hello,

I have a question about the Wharton Application.

In the “Personal Information” section there is a spot for “Awards”, “List the most significant college, university, community and professional awards, honors or scholarships you have received.”

Also in the “Academic Background” section there is a spot for “Awards”. Can you give me any insight into this? Should college awards be listed twice or just use your best judgment.

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!!

Thanks!!

Good question, it appears that the way the application is set up that the personal information section is a bit more general and less restricted so will encompass more of a diverse set of awards. The academic awards section should be academic only so accomplishments like Deans list, Valedictorian, etc. So I don't think it necessarily makes sense to be repetitive especially if there are space restrictions. At the end of the day the school will only count each award once, they will not miss an award if it is in the personal section and not the academic. But I would avoid repeating information here and divide your awards as I have recommended above.

Good Luck!
