I received the McCombs email as well. Sighs. I was stressed all week for nothing. March 8 is the new decision date. At least this gives me time to receive my R2 interview invite. It seems most interviewed and accepted folks are R1. I guess they haven't gotten to the rest of us yet. Although, I'm sure there are a few exceptions to the rules.

Irony: my other school choice, UNC, also sent an email at 4:30 am saying my application was now complete and being reviewed. Random. Their decision date is March 18. Of course my top two schools would have the latest waiting time ever. Perhaps the Consortium draft will speed things up.

BTW: My first post on this thread. Decided that posting wouldn't jinx me.

Did anyone just get an email from Mccombs today about the Consortium application being imported into the McCombs and University of Texas systems over the coming week? So they have not even looked at my application yet? Or is this a precursor to a ding?


I got that email as well. I don't think its a precursor to a ding I just think it means that they are lumping R2 candidates with Austin R3 candidates.

Any other Stern applicants via the Consortium going to Diversity Weekend?

Also, I had my interview at Yale on Thursday. Things went pretty well but 30 minutes goes by really quickly. Only suggestions I have for those that haven't had their interview yet is to make sure you have the answer to your leadership example straight. Because of nervousness I stumbled a little bit but I got it together.

Good luck to all!

I got the same Texas McCombs email as well yesterday, I hope it's not a precursor to a ding! They did say that next steps would be mid-February, so the optimistic side of me hopes this just means they haven't looked at them yet.

I'll be there. There should be a ton of consortium folks attending.

Do you know when we hear back from Yale? All I've heard is "end of this month"

I am an in-state applicant to Kenan-Flagler who applied via the Consortium. I recently received admission with a full-tuition fellowship. I assume this is not Consortium-based, since it didn't mention anything about the Consortium in the letter. What effect does this have on my chances for a Consortium fellowship from other schools, and from UNC (since the Consortium fellowship likely goes hand-in-hand with membership to the Consortium and its famous networking opportunities...making a Consortium fellowship preferable to a UNC fellowship). UNC was my highest-ranked Consortium school.

I also received a McCombs admit, and am much more interested in attending McCombs (though this is highly dependent on receiving a Consortium fellowship to it). Is there anything I can do at this point to improve my odds at McCombs (based on the news from UNC)? I ranked McCombs below UNC on the Consortium application.

a good way to indicate this would have been to put them above UNC :) but now UNC can say hey well claim you for consortium since theyre higher.. and then the discussion would come down to you trying to convince UT to give you the same even though you didnt rank them above.

I would have ranked MCombs the highest, but I never thought I would get in to any business school, period! I ranked UNC highest because I figured that as an in-state applicant my [low] chances would be high[est] there. To my surprise, I was admitted to both!

Back to my original question, should I indicate my infatuation for McCombs to them before the Consortium draft in March? If I receive a Consortium fellowship to McCombs, I will go -- 100% sure. There is still a 15-20% chance I will go to McCombs paying sticker (and turn down the UNC fellowship). At this stage in the game, is it worth mentioning to McCombs that I have received funding to UNC, but that McCombs, my dream school, is my #1 choice contingent on the fellowship? Or should I just keep quiet and hope for a fellowship at McCombs?

the issue with this is that i believe UNC -- having been ranked your #1 which they saw and they also went ahead and gave you full scholly most likely are going to say 'hey, we gave you our consortium scholarship' not 'hey, we doled out a full ride to you since you said we were #1 but want you to go ahead and have a better chance to accept somewhere else' by not giving you the consortium ride. that full ride is probably going to be them saying that theyre taking you as a first round pick, and therefore it would then be up to mccombs -- if they wanted to match it -- to match it. UNC COULD possibly not give you the consortium ride but it seems like they already did -- in advance -- and in the safety of protecting their own yield they are most likely not going to say 'yeah lets give him a chance for a full ride elsewhere and let two schools offer full rides from consortium'. does that make sense? you would be best to say something like 'well i really loved mccombs and id love to come here and came to this conclusion because of xyz after i submitted, is there any chance you can match?' but i doubt the *fellowship* as so named from the consortium will be coming from mccombs. not sure if you should say its contingent on the scholarship... i had a friend who went to a yale admit weekend ater being accepted with consort scholly @ NYU and he was able to talk to the dean and make the case then as well...

Just curious - for all of y'all that got admitted to McCombs, have you had any notification email of a status update - basically, has your status being updated to "Admitted" or something like that? I still have no status updates published for me.

Has anyone heard anything from NYU recently? I got notification 12 days ago that my application had been forwarded the adcom for review (which I know is on the later side) but still no word about na interview. I called admissions and they said consortium decisions won't be released until April 1, so at least there is still some time I guess.

When I log in to GIAC there still is no change but when I go to https://mccombs-utexas-admissions.symplicity.com/ it has a congratulatory message with an option to accept the admissions.

I wonder if accepting before the draft will influence their decision (and if so, would it positively impact my chances?) for me to get the fellowship.
