Thanks! I applied to CBS just after Christmas. I really wanted to check out the diversity day and visit all of the schools before applying.

As for the GRE - the GMAT stifled me! I scored 640 (V:37, Q:42) on the GMAT. Somehow, I scored in the top 95% in both the ACT and SAT and test out of math through Calc 2 in college. Despite a lot of practice, the data sufficiency questions keep dominating me. So I took two practice GREs and went in blindly a couple of weeks after my 640 and scored the 670 equiv.

Bummer on CBS -- I hope everything works out for you at McCombs or Anderson!

I don't know much about UT or Anderson, but for CBS, when did you apply? They have a plethora of consultants and investment bankers applying, so as a consultant, I imagine you are in for an uphill battle the deeper you apply into round 2 or 3 (I'm assuming you didn't apply ED).

Also, coming from a business background, why did you take the GREs and not the GMATs? Schools won't ever admit it, but I've always heard they are partial to people taking the GMATS as it shows a stronger intent for attending business school, especially if you are already coming from from a business-related background.

In case you are planning to apply for CBS again next fall, I would consider applying ED and also making strong statements about why they are a top choice for you.

Again, best of luck to you!

In case anyone was wondering, Consortium Members get funding for OP just like fellows, which I think is awesome! Don't forget deadline for acceptance is April 15th.

As per Consortium via email:

Yes, we pay for all incoming students’ hotel and conference registration. We also provide up to $300 per student in airfare.

Once you submit your enrollment form online, you will receive an email that details all of this, along with a policy sheet that you will be required to sign and return in order to move forward with your OP arrangements.

I'm Rd 2 Consortium and just got off the waitlist to Darden. Looks like I'm heading there as there isn't really any reason to attend Marshall over it. I would suggest to all who are interested in getting off the waitlist to contact their school of choice immediately and explain that the school is there number one choice, they will attend if accepted, and speak directly to the Consortium Rep for the school explaining you want to go to OP and need to know by April 15th if you are going to be accepted by the program.

In case anyone is interested, I explained what I did to get off the waitlist on the Darden Waitlist forum: http://gmatclub.com/forum/darden-virginia-2013-calling-all-waitlisted-applicants-149437.html#p1199373

Feel free to contact me with any questions, I'd love to help!

Today is the deadline to fax/email in your letter for OP not to select your school. For example, NYU's deadline is the 22nd and Yale extended my deadline to May 1st because I talked to admissions.

I'm applying to Toigo - anyone else?

I know this is coming a little later than most, but I received word from Texas today...in at McCombs! Great way to start what's quickly becoming an unproductive day at work.
