Means #1 passed on you for a Consortium fellowship but (if you were admitted to #1), you of course are eligible for other aid they'd like to provide.


But you're still eligible for general fellowship? I don't care about who is giving me money (the school or the consortium) just as long as I have access to the network.


The Consortium doesn't give money, the schools do. You can receive a "Consortium Fellowship" from only one of your ranked schools.

The other schools you applied to via the Consortium can offer you whatever they please (maybe a full ride, or 1/2 scholarship or nothing)

If you're admitted to one of your Consortium schools and granted membership to the Consortium and decide to attend one of the schools (doesn't matter if you have a fellowship or not) you'll have access to the network.


Yes, as long as you are accepted as a member of the consortium and choose to go to a Consortium school that you've applied to (even if you don't chose the school who gave you the Consortium Fellowship) you will still have access to the Consortium network. However, if you are accepted as a member and decided to go to a school outside of your Consortium application (ie-Havard, Wharton, etc), you will not have access to the Consortium network

I just got off the phone with Consortium and they said that decision would be mailed on Tuesday next week.


Membership decisions or fellowship decisions or both? And this is snail-mail?


I was told that membership and fellowship decisions would be mailed out. I assume that it would be regular mail.

Hehe no worries at all! The day I got my call, I was so excited I probably would've misspelled my own name. :wink: Congrats on your Fellowship!

Pretty similar boats, I got a Stern full-tuition (not quite as sweet as a full-ride), and am waiting for Columbia. May I ask why you pref'd NYU over Yale?

If you get into Columbia, will that be an automatic no to Stern?

Sorry to ask a sily question, but I'm a little confused. I thought that Consortium Fellowships were just full tuition? How does full-ride differ?

Yea, full-ride is equal to full-tuition in my mind....Consortium fellowships only cover tuition and mandatory expenses.

"Full-ride" scholarships differ from "Full-tuition" scholarships in that "Full-Rides" include books, room and board, and sometimes 'supplies'... our Consortium Fellowships, being "full-tuition" cover only tuition and mandatory fees although I'm curious as to how they define "mandatory"... for example... health insurance is a mandatory fee unless you already have comparable insurance. Does the fellowship cover that? Hopefully such specifics will be addressed in the snail-mail coming next week...
