Report Format - Very Important Update

posted Oct 4, 2011, 7:40 PM by Biharilal Deora CFA   [ updated Oct 4, 2011, 7:51 PM ]
We had to turn down acceptance of reports from at least two colleges yesterday (deadline) due to issues with Report format.
PDF and Doc Version
Please make sure that you send the PDF version for the report along with the word document since the margins for the word document can be really messed-up if anyone opens the same in a newer or older version of Microsoft office (e.g. opening 2010 version in an older version or similar).

Hard copy of the report
Please double check a printed version (hard copy) of your report for any visible formatting errors vs. the PDF/Doc version. Lot of graders would be getting a hard copy of the report for grading and once you submit the report, you won't be allowed to change anything.

Team name
Please ensure that your actual college name or Pseudo team name is not mentioned anywhere in the report including headers/footers or as sources to the charts/tables. For all practical purposes, use Student Research as the source for your own data/tables/charts. The only place where you would mention the actual name of the university/college is on the file name which you submit (see announcement related to name convention).
