I just got my email about the Ross interview. Apparently they have an on-campus CGSM interview day in Feb. Nothing on my end from Haas. I submitted everything on the deadline day.


good luck R2s!


I too received an invite from Ross and plan to attend during CGSM event. Congrats!

I got the cgsm event/interview invite as well! I'm really nervous about the group exercise though....

are you guys planning on attending the event for sure? where are you guys located? I can't decide whether to interview with alumni in town or attend the event....

I received an interview invite from Ross, but then I received an email from CGSM that they needed my transcript. I checked the application and my transcript was uploaded successfully. Did anyone else get this?

I got the email regarding my transcript as well this past Thursday. When I talked to Corey Webb, the director of recruiting, he said that my transcript was unreadable. I guess because when I scanned it to upload it, the word void appears all over the digital copy. I just had to have my school send an official copy to him electronically to rectify this issue.

Just contact him to make sure.

On another note, I still haven't recieved an email stating that my application was sent to the schools I applied to. Getting a little nervous.

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?


This is my biggest gripe with the draft system of the Consortium. There is absolutely no benefit to applying round 1 when it comes to fellowships unless you're putting Ross or Yale #1. I was in a similar position as you and just decided to do all my apps round 2. The risk was that my competition would be tougher. But I decided I'd rather see all my financial options in front of me at the same time.

So really you have two choices.
1. Pay the deposit at your round 1 school and wait. If you get a fellowship then you lose a few thousand that you put down for a deposit.
2. Decline admission and gamble on the CGSM fellowship

So, if I received a "consortium scholarship" from my number two ranked school but have yet to receive an admission decision from my number one, what exactly does that mean? I thought that schools not ranked #1 wouldnt be able to offer any consortium related money until the draft...

And is it safe to assume that a "consortium scholarship" is not a "consortium fellowship"?

Just got an email from one of the schools I submitted to stating that the Consortium has extended their application deadline to January 31st.

BigUp,

I would say that you did not get the Consortium named fellowship. More than likely the school found you worthy of a merit based scholarship. Since you applied to them through the Consortium they called it "Consortium Scholarship." An Ad Com member from UNC told me that they review CGSM applicants against all available money, not just CGSM fellowship dollars. Some CGSM admits get other scholarships and fellowships besides the named Consortium Fellowship. It really does not matter if the money is scholarship or fellowship, if you are granted membership into the Consortium you will still go to OP. Congrats on the $ though!

Round 2:
I've gotten an interview invite from Ross, and a receiving confirmation from Haas. Has anyone gotten anything from Anderson??

I haven't heard anything at all from Haas or Anderson. I received confirmation of application from UT, NYU and UNC.

I am planning on attending their Consortium/Conference weekend. I'm from Boston, but as Ross is my first choice I felt like it was too good of an opportunity to pass up going to Ann Arbor!

Tdesena, I'll be there too. I'm driving in from Chicago but will be staying at a Red Roof Inn which I managed to get through Priceline for only $60. Looking forward to seeing you guys.

Congrats hopeful!

Marc, I'd suggest emailing or calling the Consortium to sort out your application status.

When (day) did you submit the application (they process by order of receipt)? Are all portions of it complete, including the Consortium mission/recommender portion? I would agree that you should call or email them for a status.

You can add NYU alongside Ross and Yale for schools that are offering the Fellowship with your admission - I just got the call that I received it (two days after getting admission letter)!!
