In terms of the recommendations, does anyone know what format they are in? Do they ask the recommender to write a letter with specific parameters, or do they have short answer boxes? My recommender is hesitant to commit because she wants to know the format. And also, does each school ask different questions? Or are there simply two letters of recommendation needed for all schools?

Got a call from Yale -- got in and got the Consortium Fellowship! Not sure how many they give out at Yale each year, but feeling pretty darn grateful.

Congrats Speedy! Thats incredible news.

Gang, I know this has been covered many times in the past on this forum, but at what point do we find out about fellowships? It looks like in years past, all schools would conduct the 'draft' to determine who they want to offer the fellowship, but this year looks a bit different since some folks receive the fellowship on their admit call.

Could anyone throw some light onto this?

If you ranked a school #1, some are going to let you know about the fellowship at time of admit. So far however, we have only heard this happening at Ross and Yale. If you didn't rank the program first, you won't hear until after the draft in March.

NO! :( I waited all day.

It has been my experience that sometimes Consortium applicants do not receive their decision at the same time as the traditional round 1 applicants.

I am hoping that this is the case for me at Ross.

I'm an international applicant and I haven't heard anything from Tuck yet either accept confirmation about my application.

Also, does anyone have advice for a stupid question? I got denied by my #1 school, do you think it would help my chances of getting into my #2 school if I sent them an e-mail saying, "Hey, you're my new number 1" (of course I would try to say it in a more professional way than that).

I also got the "your app is complete and has been sent to the AdCom for review" email from Tuck back in early november. Haven't heard anything since. I wonder if its a bad sign that we weren't invited to interview via skype?????? Anyone have any ideas on this? :| :|

Regarding your question, I personally would advise against it. Hopefully you conveyed your excitement in potentially attending all the schools you applied to through your essays / app, so I think writing an email to them would be an exercise in futility with little upside (and with unknown risks). Just my two cents though...

Well the notification date for Tuck Consortium applicants is February 7th so there's still a chance...theoretically.

No, I applied to them as well and I haven't received word from them yet either but I did just get an e-mail from them basically saying don't lose hope, everyone still has a chance, rainbows and sunshine, etc. So I still have hope because that's all I can afford to have right now. :-D
