Found out today that I'm waitlisted... pretty bummed out about it.

join the club buddy. atleast they'll give feedback on y we were waitlisted ...
when did you interview ...?

I was a R2 applicant, interviewed mid December.

Get this though... last week I received an email from Cornell inviting me to a networking event at Morgan Stanley in NYC, the invite says it's for alumni, students and faculty. I still hadn't heard the final decision on my app. so I'm thinking that I'm in... I mean, why else would I get the invite? Guess I was wrong...

LOL. The day after I interviewed with Cornell, they sent me a financial aid email... explaining the costs and to save up because it was going to be expensive.... I literally jumped out of my seat... but in the end they dinged me.

From the dings and waitlists, it looks like I wasted some time and money on the Cornell app.

I've got the interview invitation last night (I'm 12 hours ahead of NY time). It was a big surprise. I submitted my application in the very last minute of the deadline (R2)... And that was my very first application ever. So happy, another step closer...

But one thing: They asked me to arrange an on-campus interview... Is it true that I'm gonna fly half the globe to Cornell for the interview? There must be some other way right? Still haven't figured out how to reply the Ad Com on this matter.

I was thinking of an interview with the only alumnus in our country, but in the email they specifically stated that it would be an on-campus interview.

I'm an R3 applicant and given the trend, I sure hope I din't waste my $200. I wish all those waiting for a decision good luck though and if it doesn't work out, there's probably a reason. Try to learn from it.

I would really really love to have on-campus interview where I would have more chance to express myself. So what's the pros and cons of phone interview vs in person interview? And how to make the most out of a phone interview? Appreciate any advice!

I was thinking of an interview with the only alumnus in our country, but in the email they specifically stated that it would be an on-campus interview. They will give you the Alumni or Telephonic interview options because it seems infeasible for you to travel only for the interview. That mail is a generic mail for everyone.

Trying to get more info about the school and the program. A little bit nervous. I'm a type of person that if the interviewer is nice, everything will be beautiful. If the interviewer is tricky or cold... then it's hard to blossom. Wish me luck...

Thank you so much for your list of questions. I got your message only 15 mins before the interview. And two of the questions saved me: - If there are 3 things I should write about you to the admissions committee in my interview report what should they be? - How would your co-workers describe you? Great thanks!! I had a nice talk with Ann Richards. Waiting for Friday...

I met Ann Richards at a local info session & at Cornell, she is certainly very friendly & helpful. From what I've heard, she is also a great person to interview with.

Oh wish I'd talked with you before. Your information is great and encouraging. Ann Richards was nice. I read in a quotation from a student that this "amazing and compassionate woman is a true reflection of the entire school". She was also very sharp, picking the right point to ask.

However I was nervous in the first half of the interview. I think I was 40% of myself in the interview hic hic... I think I sounded overly serious about my work and MBA plan. The conversation got better towards the end when we were done with formal questions and started chatting about the article quotation and coffee and Sage Hall. I really wish I'd met her in person.

Now all I've gotta do is hold my breath until the verdict this Friday. Sunday will be my birthday. Oh well, let's hope...

Thanks prospective mba. That was an article with a student's quotation about Johnson School and Ann Richards. The comment was so impressive to me.
