Hi Marcie,

I have a minor question about the online application form.

The Educational Information page shows the following instruction:
"for reporting your educational records, please specify your chronological order- most recent to oldest"

I have taken a number of courses via extension, as well as a few classes for graduate credit as a visiting student at local universities. Since all of these post-date my undergrad degree, my inclination was to list them first and then have my undergrad degree at the bottom. However, the top box (i.e. "most recent" attendance) is the only one wherein information like "major" and "degree completed" are required. This would suggest that the top box is the place for my undergraduate degree, despite my most recent attendance having been coursework outside of a degree program.

What should I do? List the schools descending in reverse chronological order, contrary to the apparent meaning of the instructions?

Sorry for such a fine-point question. I just thought I'd post it here in case other people are also scratching their heads about this.

Thanks.

Cornell Team,

Thanks for the revert, but my second part of the question was not answered.

I am Targeting the 1 year program.

I have a total of over 8 years of work experience - Is that acceptable for your 1 year program or is it beyond the average.

Also I have already done a prior MBA course - Will that be an issue or a Major Red flag.

First off I want to congratulate Johnson administration and gmatclub on this unique initiative. It is a rather nobel effort.

I am a R1 applicant for Johnson. I am in a bit of a fix about my recommendations.

I have done 2 roles primarily in my career.

1. Current role: I have been in it for 13 months. I have worked under my hiring manager for 8 months until he left for another team in the same company a few months ago. My current manager and I have worked for 5 months only. Which one of the two should I choose?

2. Previous role: I did this role for 4 years. I worked under different manager through this while but the same engineering manager, who has little experience in being a direct manager to me. I have two choices again here - the engineering manager or a direct manager during this time. Which one should I choose?

I am not stating my personal opinion here so as to not sway the opinion. It would be great if I could get a perspective on this matter from the Johnson school administration..

Is it possible to do a joint degree in MBA and Master of Management in Hotel Hospitality? I saw on the admissions page that joint degrees are available, but didn't see MMH as an example so that's why I'm wondering. If so, should we apply to both separately? And is it still possible to complete in 2 years?

Thanks!

Johnson does offer dual degree programs with other schools on campus. Your best bet would be to reach out to the Hotel school, as I believe they offer a one year master's program. Let me know if you have any additional questions

Hi,

I have a dilemma here, and I would love to hear your opinion on this.

I am applying in R1, therefore, submitting my application by Oct.12, but I also wish to attend the Women in Business event taking place on campus Oct. 20-21. I must apply in R1 and get the result back by the end of this year due to personal reasons. If I get selected to attend the event in late October, would there be any way that I could add a portion to the application which, by then, would have already been submitted?

Thank you so much!!!

JohnsonAdmissions,

Should an applicant (okay, me) update admissions if there was a change to information provided in his or her application- a material pay increase for example?

Thank you in advance.

I am not a member of the Admissions Committee, but I would like to interject anyway. I recently got promoted, so I got in touch with the Johnson AdCom. I sent an email to the generic address and called a couple of numbers, which I found on the website. They reached out to me not long after that and asked me to send them my updated resume. And then I was told that I could continue sending them any significant updates.

I am not certain if a salary increase is considered a significant update by the Johnson AdCom team, but I would think that it is. I would still recommend that you ask them about this directly, but I figured that I would share my experience so that you know that they are not completely opposed to accepting any form of updates.

JohnsonAdmissions,

I currently work in small-cap private equity and know that I want to work in small-cap private equity long-term. What initially attracted me to Cornell was the Entrepreneurship and Private Equity immersion learning program. It seems to me that Johnson has one of the only MBA programs that has a path specifically focused on small-cap private equity.

Where can I get more information on this specific immersion learning program? Some of my specific questions include:

- What courses and experiences can one expect from the program?
- How many people participate in this program? (the website says "a small number of students")
- Will this program still be beneficial if I have 2.5 years of experience in small-cap private equity?

Thank you in advance for any and all information.

Students in the EPE immersions work very closely with other schools and departments on campus such as BR Consulting and BR Law.

Great question, what makes Johnson different? Choosing b-school is a huge time commitment. Take time to speak with alumni, current students and perhaps most importantly visit the schools you are interested in. Students participate in an immersions program, during the spring semester of their first year. This enables students to experience a program that is intense, hands-on integrated course and field work in a specific industry or career interest

Our GMAT range is between 650-750. Please visit our website for additional information, www.johnson.cornell.edu

Hi Johnson Admissions,

I am in the process of completing my application for submission in R2.

Per the application instructions, we can scan our GMAT score reports and submit them ourselves (official scores from MBA.com being required if we're granted admission). However, there doesn't appear to be a place on the application to upload our "Official - Test Taker Score Report." How should we address this? Should we just upload our scores and email them to the appropriate account manager?

Thank you and have a nice day!

I'm also interested in PE and was a Cornell undergrad. I would love to return to Ithaca. Can you please talk about PE recruiting? Who hires on campus? Where do students in the immersion go? What PE firms have Johnson alums in snr posts? What recruiting help can I expect from the school?

Hi Marcie -- was wondering if Johnson will be soon publishing detailed career stats -- firms and the like -- for the Class of 2011. I'm interested in equity research on both the buy and sell side so I was curious what the placement for these careers are. Thanks!
