Just so I'm clear... your spouse is a PHD student in Computer Science at Cornell and you're the only one that will be applying to the MBA program?

So do you also live in Ithaca? I think it helps your chances because the odds of you accepting an offer are really high. If you're on the fence, then the fact that you will accpet could push you over the edge.


He is doing first year PhD in Computer Science in Cornell. I'm from overseas, will be applying for MBA or MSc for Fall 2008.


Sounds good. I bet it would be great to go to the same school as him, huh?

So are you applying anywhere else?

Is there any benefit to submitting this early besides the personal benefit to get to put this away?

I definitely don't want to be the first one in line. Then they'll have all this time to scrutinize your application.

I think that's over-thinking. I prefer to get it out of the way and work on my Stern app. Cornell is very yield conscious and being first to submit will prob be a good thing.

I'd apply R1 if you didn't owe a deposit by the same day I'd hear the decision from HBS and Sloan

I'll wait til R2. Haven't got the desired GMAT score (gonna retake in 2-3 weeks). Oh man I start to feel a mess of everything needs to be done before Nov...

Apart from Cornell I am thinking about NYU (MSc. RE) and Brandeis as a backup. Any comment?

Ya, next week is going to be bit hectic, so in the course of things I might forget to even submit the application and my home internet connection is down at the moment so didnt want to push my luck any more.

The whole cornell application, especially the 2 mangy looking 400 word essays really scare me. What idea will they get of an applicant from those 2 essays... thats my main cause of concern.

Avi, you already got in CBS?

..... because Cornell only requires those 2 wimpy essays, it's more important to get these absolutely fantastico.

Congrats Avi! 2 submitted so far eh? I hope to submit Stanford/UCLA the week of 10/15, probably on 10/19 or 10/20. Then pull out Haas and work the heck out of that for a week or two and submit beginning of November. Let's hope my plan holds!

Here's a stupid question:

R1 Deadline is 10/10. Does that mean 23:59 10/09 or 23:59 10/10?
