Thanks for the help David. Your insightful responses are extremely valuable. I do have another question regarding the Duke application. I have my application ready to submit, but I won’t be able to travel to Duke for the interview before their cut-off period. Should I wait and apply in the second round when I can interview, or would I be better off applying in round 1? Do you think I will be penalized without an interview? It appears that the interview is a major part of their application.
I have a question about the Stern application. They ask for a resume including educational and professional information, as well as an Employment History which includes responsibilities at each position. Its seems that the Employment History will be redundant with the resume. How should the two items be structured, in your opinion, to avoid this problem? Thanks in advance for your response.
