Hi! New to the conversation, but have been lurking here (and on last year's thread) for a while.

Anybody know anything about Yale interview invites? I'm wondering if not having heard anything yet is a bad sign...Yale is my top choice, and I really want to get to the interview stage at least!

I haven't heard from Cornell yet, either, but was invited to interview with Ross on the 31st (Went to spam! Be on the look out!).

Thanks!

I haven't heard from Yale either...I'm leaning towards thinking I'm a ding.

I received my interview invite on January 7th. The e-mail did ask Consortium applicants to schedule their interview on or before February 14th. I'm not sure how likely they'd be to send out more invites a week prior to the deadline. It might be worth looking into it to make sure all of your Consortium material transferred over correctly?

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.


From last year's thread Schools were making calls to consortium fellows around 3/14


Thanks!

I contacted them already about this and they said not to trust the status.

Thanks for your input, that makes sense. My application didn't actually get sent to Yale from the Consortium until later much later than Jan 7th--around the 24th or so--due to a delay in ETS score reporting (GRE taker here). The Consortium assured me that it would not reflect badly on me since I got all of my materials in on time, and that basically all of the people who reported GRE scores were in the same boat. I'm going to go ahead and assume that that delay is the reason for this delay (gotta keep hope alive until the ding comes, right?).

I remember when I visited the school the Director of Admissions said that they send out interview invites right up to their deadlines, so not receiving one right away doesn't necessarily mean you won't be asked. I hope that is true!

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


So wrong kid.... Vandy was my final application also without a consultant's help... nice try...

Congrats - and best of luck!

Was the Anderson invite for a Skype interview (assuming you aren't local)?

They offer both on campus, or Skype, and emphasize that there is no preference on their part between the two, which definitely helps, because I live in Atlanta.

Wow. I just had the most intimidating interview for Marshall. The interviewer informed me when we started that the interview would last about a half hour. It ended up being an hour. I don't know what to think about that. Usually, after walking out of the interview, i have some kind of idea whether or not it went well. I'm totally stumped. I'm hoping the interviewer was just so interested and had so many questions to ask that it ran way long. Here's to the cup being half full! :)

I have an interview with Marshall next week. What made the interview intimidating? Who did you interview with and what kind of questions were you asked?
