When filling out the info for my current job that I started in June 06 it has a txt boxes that says how many years work experience. It will be almost 2.5 (they don't take decimals) when I apply and 3 at matriculation. Should I still list it as 2 and hope someone in the adcom realizes that I will be a 3 yr work experience applicant?

I'm guessing we should be filling the numbers of work ex until Aug 2009 (for 2009 Applicants)? Some of the applications specify this.

1. Fill out the number of the actual work years now, not at matriculation.
2. Key thing is to have the data on your resume and in the app match perfectly.
3. Underlying assumption: you want the adcome to have a very clear picture of you. They do not like to guess or assume any numbers about you.

Good luck!

well the actual text box says "number of years employed"

but under employment they leave section for employment during college and I do have the job I worked during college on my resume which would give me 4.5 years as of now and 5 yrs at matriculation but only 2.5 post grad as of now and 3 at matriculation. Hemmmm how one txt box could be so open to interpretation.

I have to say while Wharton is my number one choice the online application has frustrated me in a couple of ways and never got any answers on the technical question I submitted. My company actually makes more money than the annual resume text box will hold (only goes to 10digits!) - maybe it's bcs I test applications that I seem to find these kind of things.

i will have 2 yrs experience as of fall 2009, and i put down 2 years of experience in the app. i already submitted the app too. if the wharton adcom can't do some math, then maybe that's not the place for us anyway, right?
