Just received an interview invite from Marshall, definitely good to get at-least one. Still very much hoping for invites from Haas and Anderson. Seems like a couple people have received Anderson invites in the last few days.... so I'm a bit nervous. I don't think Haas interviews for R2 applicants will go out for a while though. Or has anyone from R2 received one already???

Has anyone besides silvaware heard back regarding a Darden Interview? I'm starting to get pretty anxious since I haven't gotten an interview from Stern, or Darden.



Hey Medium -- I also (finally) heard back from Darden at the end of last week and got an interview invite.

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.

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.


Aren't you the same person that shelled out money on not one but two consultants? Your money situation is a bit befuddling.


That's very funny. :lol: Props for pointing that out. :lol: I really like your sense of humor. :lol:
Pretty sure, my essays would've been better and without typos if just one was hired. :-D

Has anyone recently gotten interview invites from Haas, Tuck, McCombs, or Tepper for Rd2? I haven't heard anything about interviews from those schools and am getting very concerned. Based on the above posts it looks like Haas might not be sending invites out for a while, but I havent heard much about the other three on this thread in Rd2.

Received login information from Tepper a while ago, but nothing regarding an interview invite yet. :(

ldryan, Tuck has a very big focus on people scheduling their interviews and coming up to Hanover to show their desire/intent to be at Tuck since that is very much so a core thing that they look for as evidenced by their additional essay. Are you based in the US? If so they might have expected you to schedule an interview and show up.

then one could argue that your investment in the consultants may have led to better essays and application which may have been responsible for your full ride to vandy. if you ranked darden as your #1 then maybe its worth the $1k to travel there and eat that costs to save the 55k a year in tuition from a potential full ride. its an investment. no free lunches but consortium does a damn well good job at offering great opportunities, network, and a high fellowship chance compared to traditional applications. definitely not a bait and switch

Do any of you guys know when in March Fellowship decisions will be made?

Foster was kind enough to extend my deposit deadline until March 20th, and I'm hoping that this will give me enough time to find out about whether I made it into Yale and Ross, and how much financial aid I can expect from them. Fuqua isn't budging on their deposit deadline, which is February 27th, so even though it's a great school, I'm thinking of letting it go and falling back on Foster if UM and Yale don't work out.

Just got invited to interview at USC! and Finally got an email from Stern saying that my application was received. Has anyone heard back from UCLA or Emory? Still waiting on those two and it seems like others are as well...

I haven't received any info from UCLA - only that they received my Consortium R2 app and will review it with their regular R2 candidates (Decision deadline: 4/3).

Also, just a heads up for Ross Consortium applicants: I've heard there have been delays in when some Consortium applications reached Ross. My guess is that there is still a Consortium interview invite wave coming.
