For those who have applied R1... have you heard back from the schools? I applied to three, and have heard back from two:
Yale - email saying that the video portion of the application will be sent to me soon...
Ross - interview invitation!
Haas - nothing. Anyone hear anything from Haas?

Of the six schools I have applied to through The Consortium, only Yale has responded back so far.

Also received an invitation from Ross. I'm inclined to sign up for an on-campus interview- any thoughts?

Ross sent all R1, Consortium or not, interview invites yesterday, hence the quick turnaround. Good luck to those with invites!

New to the thread. Congrats to those who received invites to interview at Ross! Has anybody already interviewed at Goizueta and what that was like?

schools DO see your rankings and DO count it in their admissions as some are 'yield sensitive' : Tuck, Yale, Stern being the most sensitive. From what I've heard, Tuck #needs# to be #1 for admissions consideration, stern likes #1 but will begrudgingly take #2, Yale is similar.

HOWEVER -- if Tuck admits you and gives you a scholarship, Stern may accept you and try to give you their own full scholarship to steal you away from Tuck. If Tuck doesnt admit you, Stern can admit you but if they gave out all of their scholarships in the first round of admissions, then they wont give you money.

Certain schools have a limited amount of scholarship $$ they give out and as such it is usually done in the first round or two for the most selective schools, schools which are less selective may be able to hold their money over until other rounds and 'be okay' with you ranking them #3

lower ranked schools are more flexible overall

and yes i know it says 'schools do not weigh this is or use it' but... reality is harsh :P read over all the old threads and pore through them if youd like



This is Flat Out incorrect.

I have talked with people working in the Consortium as well as adcom from Consortium schools. They all say the rankings have NO impact on your acceptance. In fact, schools don't even know what you've ranked them as until AFTER they have sent out their admissions decisions. The scholarship process begins well after the admissions decisions have been sent. It is only at this point that schools can find out what you have ranked them as.

Hope that clears up any confusion.


This may be true "officially" as far as the Consort knows but what's stopping one school from informally reaching out to another about a student?

Did anyone receive confirmation that the application were received? I got an email from Cornell but not from any other schools (Tuck, Darden, Haas, NYU)...

Nope, same here. I applied to Stern, Goizueta, and McDonough but haven't received any confirmations either.

I applied to 6, although I'm thinking that was a bad decision based on previous conversation...

Berkeley - nothing yet
Yale - Video information, nothing else
Stern - Confirmation and login information for status site
Tepper - Confirmation
UCLA - nothing
Georgetown - Interview invitation (that was my only communication)

Hey guys,

I'm on the same boat too - I haven't heard back from most schools.

Berkeley - nothing
UCLA - nothing
USC - nothing
Indiana - invited to interview

Ironically, Indiana was my #4 choice school, and they're the only ones to respond so far... :|

I think UCLA and Berk dont send anything unless you get an interview.. theyre pretty radio silent. Or wait, actually I think Berk lets you know that they have your app and are reviewing

I also have heard nothing from Haas... radio silence.
With Yale, I got the video interview info (and completely botched the video questions, ugh), but have heard nothing else.

C'mon Haas! Yale!

Oddly enough, I just got an email from Ross saying they have received my application... although they invited me for an interview on the 21st. Maybe they invited all Consortium candidates because of the quick turnaround?

For those who applied to Haas, was anyone worried that the Haas-specific application did not contain their Personal Statement essay? Are they relying on the personal statement essay from the Consortium? How did you tailor your essay to Haas? Any thoughts would be appreciated. Good luck everyone!

I indirectly referenced the "Haas values" - confidence without attitude, question the status quo, think beyond themselves, and students always - in my three essays. Specifically, I talked about questioning the status quo in the "greatest accomplishment" essay; preparation and seeking knowledge in the "greatest failure"; and I used the song essay to talk about being grateful for the opportunities I've been given in life so far, and paying some of those opportunities forward.

I didn't use the phrases outright, but I tried to show those qualities through examples.



Hope that helps!
