My consortium rec is still not popping up and I am freaking out. I had everything submitted and I know he submitted his recommendation. From what I understand this will not impact school admissions but will negatively impact the odds of getting a fellowship. Can anyone provide some advice?

It is not showing up on either but he called me after he submitted it. It didn't show up on the VIP page until early Monday morning. I didnt get the confirmation email Sunday night.

According to my VIP page, my mission recommender hasn't submitted her letter yet. I contacted her and she confirmed she submitted it last night. Hopefully this is just a latency issue. The VIP page says updates could take up to 48 hours...

I'm tempted to just call them and confirm.

So around this time last year they were on page 20... Massive drop in applications this year?


I was also looking at last year's page and it seemed busier by this time. Do you really think there's a drop in applications or maybe there are fewer consortium folks on this forum comapred to last year.

I don't know what is going on. I called today and found out my rec met the deadline so I am excited. I did Michigan, UVA, Cornell and UNC. I'm hoping it works out! I wonder if they will maintain the number of fellowships despite a reduced applicant pool.

Its not just the consortium. Here are some interesting articles on the sharp reduction in MBA applications.

My philosophy on buying education is the same as anything else. Go when demand is low and pay a reduced price (scholarship $$$).

Did anyone else have issues with the Consortium receiving test scores? They only accept paper GRE and have not received mine yet (though it was sent on the 26th and received in my own mailbox).

They are holding my application until they get it, and won't verify my scores via phone. I'm super anxious this is going to push my application out too far, even though I ordered new scores as soon as I knew. Any advice?

I am really bummed they don't accept online scores, they would be reported immediately! Good luck to all of you!

I applied R1. Just TODAY got word that Tuck opened my app... (though I didn't do a self-initiated interview). Also, WL R1 for Darden and confirmed my interest in being on the WL when that happened (in December). last night got another email to REconfirm my interest in the WL....

Confirmation on application submission? [#permalink] New post 09 Jan 2013, 09:46
Hello all -

I just submitted my Consortium application on Jan 5th! I still haven't received a confirmation that my application has been processed. Other than the automated email that you get that your application has been submitted, has anyone received any other notifications? This process is nerve racking and exciting at the same time!!! :-D

Jessica.
