I applied to Consortium school round 1. My #1 school did not award me the fellowship. Do I still have a chance of getting the fellowship Round 2?

Hi latinomba360,

As long as you are admitted to your next schools you are still in the running for the fellowship. Your second ranked school has the option to offer you the fellowship next. But you will have to wait until the fellowship draft process later this spring, from what I understand.

So, the timing of this fellowship draft is not really optimal. I have been fortunate enough to get into a couple of my round 1 schools (non-consortium), but they require that I pay a deposit to hold my spot in the class in late feb/early march. The draft is in mid march. I would definitely attend one of these schools, but I'm hoping for the fellowship from my #1 consortium school...

Anyone else in a similar position? How would you guys approach this?

@latinomba360 only some Consortium schools are offering their fellowships with R1 decisions. I think from this thread we only know of 2 (maybe 3) schools that are doing this. I am assuming your #1 was one of these, otherwise you will have to wait until mid-March to hear if 1) you get membership into the Consortium and 2) if any of your schools offer you the fellowship.

@BigUp I am in a similar position. I was also fortunate to get into another R1 school (non-consortium), who offered me a favorable financial package, but I need to let them know my intent by late-February. However, I rather go to one of the Consortium schools I already got into. I'm taking the chance of hopefully getting a fellowship. Crossing my fingers I'm making the right choice. March can't come soon enough.

I was admitted to Ross Round 1 but was not offered a fellowship. I don't think that Ross will offer me the fellowship Round 2.

If Ross does not offer me the fellowship (most likely scenario), then I will be attending a non-consortium school. My other consortium schools put me on WL.

Does anyone know when the Consortium will send the R2 applications to the schools?

Non-Consort Anderson applicants are already getting R2 interview invites.

It takes a week or two. You'll get an email when the consortium forward your app.

I think you might be misunderstanding the process. If Ross was your #1 Consortium choice and they didn't offer you the fellowship along with your admit, they will not have a 2nd opportunity to offer you the same thing. They are passing, and the schools you ranked #2 and lower will have the chance to offer you a fellowship in March. Round 2 is simply another deadline for new applicants, not a 2nd opportunity to receive a fellowship.

I may be misunderstanding the process also, but I thought that the first step is to be admitted to your schools, after which they determine whether they want to offer you the fellowship during the draft (and only then). Or is it that your number one choice has the option to give you the fellowship along with admission(at their deadline and not during the draft)? And if they don't, then you might get an offer from your number two school during the draft, but not your first choice?

hopefulmba explained it just as I understand it.

Ceecee - Only the school you ranked #1 has the opportunity to offer you a scholarship at the time of admission. If they elect not to admit you or admit you without the fellowship, then you will still have the opportunity during the March "draft" to get a fellowship from other Consortium schools (assuming you're admitted and they choose to give you the $$).

I understand the process as much as you all do- I was admitted R1 to say school B which I didn't rank 1st. What I was concerned about was whether there was a decreased likelihood that I'd get a fellowship by school B in March IF school A which I ranked higher fell through. Since school B already handed out some fellowships before March, I'm wondering if there is less wiggle room come the official draft.

Like you all, early in the application season I imagined the draft process happening all at once, with all the Consortium money on the table in March. Now it seems there is less $on the table for March since some has already been offered. I don't know all the deadlines for enrolling and putting in a deposit so maybe by March, some promised$ might be freed up with some admits declining the offers. Who knows really, was just speculating.

I see what you're saying. However, in theory those same decisions would have been made early in the draft in March. By the time your application was up for discussion, it is likely that there would be "less $on the table." I don't think this is really a helpful way to look at it though since we don't really know the intricacies of the process.

Not necessarily, if everything were done in march and say I was rejected for fellowship/admission by my 1st choice, that would leave me and another candidate who ranked that school first in the same position. The school might then decide that they prefer me over that other applicant and provide me the fellowship.

In any case, there's little use worrying yet when I haven't heard back yet from most of the schools I applied to.

Out of curiosity, any other admits from Consortium schools outside of Yale and Ross?

Yeah, I think we're getting a bit ahead of ourselves as those are some really intricate possibilities that we don't have line of sight to. However, I tend to agree with @braminc. Regardless if they did everything in March or split up like they are doing it this year, by the time you get to your #2 school, there may be "less money on the table" from that #2 school because they'e already offered out their fellowships to those who placed them as #1.

Fab! I would've applied there too but my husband spent a lot of time in the South and wanted to be somewhere else. That's so great !
