For all of the Ross invites, did you all get confirmation beforehand that Ross had received your application?


I received a confirmation on the 29th and then an interview invite on the 31st. They are quick!

Just got the alert from Darden that my app was submitted (it was a weird password reset email actually), and an interview request same day.

Haven't heard a peep from UCLA, invites from Darden and Tepper so far.

Congrats! Do you mind me asking if you had heard anything from them prior to the interview invite? I've received confirmation from Marshall and Haas, but haven't heard anything from UCLA, but if they didn't contact you prior to you invite, then I suppose I should just keep hoping for the time being.

So who is going to the consortium interview day? I'm very excited about Michigan! It's my #1 choice!


I was thinking about going. Did you decide to go? Have you booked your flights and such?

always read the footnotes ;) can miss out on critical info if you dont haha

not to be harsh but there are more than a few schools that do this already. if everyone does it then you get to see a lot more of the country i guess ;) and if every school would do this then less people would apply to all the schools then yields would go up and maybe less waitlisting?!

life sucks, sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do :) im sure if you have them highly ranked on your CGSM app and you end up getting the consortium fellowship with them the few hundred you spend on visiting will be a very moot point :)

overall in the b school pool many would kill to spend a few hundred bucks to visit and have a high chance at a fellowship. its worth it


Better Chances Not Interviewing On-Campus

(1) Paying for an expensive trip signals that the applicant may be financially well-off and thus may not even need a scholarship at all, (2) Even if the applicant is poor and still visits, schools might get the impression that those applicants might matriculate even without a fellowship offered (i.e. Students Loans, etc.), (3) Don't invade Troy for a Southern Belle who invites you over for a first date. Gentleman, admission is still not guaranteed. That's true no matter how much money is spent on her... :shock:

Most Lawyer's Favorite Footnote of All-Time
Footnote #4 in United States v. Carolene Products Co., 304 U.S. 144 (1938) in part, reads "whether prejudice against discrete and insular minorities may be a special condition, which tends seriously to curtail the operation of those political processes ordinarily to be relied upon to protect minorities"... :wink:

As a side note, rrossjd, I think you should protest Darden's absurd on-site interview requirement by withdrawing your application :)

Rule Makes Darden An Even Better School
Just think its absurd that the rule applies to me in Texas, otherwise my own personal understanding of what motivates the rule's adoption, why it wasn't stated up-front on the Consortium application, and what results are likely achieved thanks to the rule actually makes me want to attend Darden even more and not want to withdraw my application. Sorry... :(

Sorry, but I must disagree with you on your point #1. If you are invited to participate on a diversity day interview, it gives you a chance to meet with the the ad coms focused on diversity recruiting, who ultimately decide who to give fellowships to. By not going, you are missing out on an opportunity to make a positive impression and the ad coms quite frankly won't know why you are more qualified to receive a fellowship than someone else who actually attended and demonstrated interest. I know someone who received a fellowship a few years ago to a consortium school, and is now active in that school's interview process. He outright told me that it is advantageous to go to events if you are able to do so.

As for the in-person interviews overall -- I agree that they are inconvenient, but they say 90% of communication is non-verbal, so it makes some sense that these schools want to see you live, rather than talking with you over the phone or Skype.

No need to apologize, I agree with all your very valid points. Until now, in my lifetime, I've almost always shelled out the money to interview for that dream internship or job and never gotten the position. And, after failing so many times in the past, it's time to learn from those experiences and do things better in the future. For example, whenever schools are in my local area, I have and will continue to take advantage of those opportunities.

Additionally, by not understanding why applicants like me cannot visit far away campuses, schools are missing out on opportunities to make a positive impression and demonstrate interest as well. Namely, to access all those advantages you mentioned that flow from an on-campus interview, one must first possess the financial means and personal budget to incur related travel expenses. Simply put, I just don't have that kind of money at present.
