Color me confused as well. A couple weeks ago I got an invite to Cornell's Scholarship Weekend, which starts tomorrow in Ithaca. I was under the impression that Johnson was not planning to extend Consortium fellowships to anyone until after the weekend, with the final decision depending on our performance over the weekend.

But I'm reading in this thread that several have already heard from Johnson with fellowship offers; were you guys invited to the Scholarship Weekend? Because it now seems like they have made those decisions ahead of time, which makes me wonder why I was invited in the first place...

Then they likely didn't award you the fellowship. My understanding is at the draft they have a pre-prepared list of students to fight for fellowships. If you received a scholarship invitation (which is still great!) it's likely then that they will try to garner you $ in a different way. Still exciting stuff as it's invite only!


Have you heard from an other schools? Consortium or not?

Anyone know if it's worth holding my breath for Cornell (or NYU) at this point?

For those individuals who received the fellowship, has your status changed on the CGSM VIP page?

Just got the call from UNC! But no fellowship info, and I didn't ask either. Just grateful right now :)

All weekend? Well, that blows... why not a little more clarity on the Consortium side (and UNC in this case)? It certainly would be nice... Even if it is bad news, it would be very helpful to know when to expect any news. Any who... let me continue here trying to get any work done. Good luck everyone!

Decisions are up for Michigan. Looks like I got waitlisted. Any advice for how to get off the waitlist?

For those who got admit calls with fellowships this week, were you notified of the fellowship by the school adcom or the consortium? Was the info offered up with the admit, or did you inquire?

I felt ungracious to ask about scholarships after just being accepted, so I refrained. Now my curiosity is taking over..

I was told in the admit call by the school adcom and received no call from the Consortium.

Very astute. Just got a call from Michigan with good news about the fellowship hours after arriving at Cornell for the weekend!

Have any calls gone out today for Tuck? I know some people heard yesterday but today was the official day. So weird that no US calls have gone out at all today.

I was thinking the same thing. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Maybe Tuck is just keeping the suspense high? I find it hard to believe that calling so many R1 admits on the second day at, like, 5pm was a coincidence. And now, none of the US applicants have heard anything. This must be a set-up...lol

Waiting on Tuck also (or other schools). Boy oh boy... The suspense is killing me. Getting on a plane soon and then that's when I will go crazy :)
