I'm lucky enough to be within driving distance of Cornell (about 3 1/2 hours from Buffalo) so plane tix won't be a problem for this one.

I wish you all the best for your interview Dharmabum... this is truly exciting right now.

Solaris, I'm sure you'll hear in a few days. (If Columbia interviewed you, why wouldn't Cornell?) I submitted almost a month ago so I was probably at the top of the pile when it came to sending emails.

Haha, worrying about my Cornell interview would be a bit premature cereal255 (although I must say I will be disappointed if don't get an interview invite, I'm really proud of my essay 3).

I'm just concerned my application status hasn't moved past "Received" in the last 10 days. I didn't send anything in hard copy, and the supplemental materials and recommendations went in well before the deadline. That's what I wanted to check with Admissions. But if they're reviewing 600 applications already, and have another 3 more Rounds to go, this is definitely going to turn out to be a ridiculously competitive year. So major props to you on that interview; remember what our student ambassador said during our visit, now you have a pretty even 50% chance at receiving an offer of admission.

So good luck!

I will certainly post a debrief as soon as I get back on Monday. (My wife will yell at me for being on the "nerd forum" again like she did after my class visit and I was posting a debrief) But I've learned so much from reading everyone's posts here it feels good to help out. This is one of the best forums that I've encountered because everyone is very willing to help each other out with this sort of thing.

And I'll second Solaris saying that I'm certainly happy to get the interview call in what is definitely going to be a ridiculously competitive admissions year. All of these articles that everyone is posting are making me really nervous about getting in. 600 apps for round one alone... dang the rest of the rounds are going to be even more nuts! I'm just glad I did my two top choice apps in round 1 where I should have a better shot. I think it helps that Cornell is my number one choice and I made it VERY clear in my essays.

Also it took me a while to get a status change after I submitted as well Solaris. I think that I submitted 9/16 and got an incomplete message on 9/29 or something like that so maybe about two weeks or so is normal?

Congrats you two!

Even though I'm not applying to Cornell, I'm excited to see the whole application thing moving forward!

Go read some of the 2008 threads! A bunch of guys got interviews at Ross within a week or two, then the rest almost a month later!

There is often no logic or reason as to when you get an interview.

Relax and enjoy the ride.

Sterny,
congratulations, thats the first hurdle

This link tells me that in 2007 they interviewed 50% of applicants (of which 50% get accepted)

Ouch, just saw a post on BW that states the acceptance rate at Cornell was less than 19% for the Class of 2010. 499 offers made from 2664 applicants, 272 matriculated eventually. Cornell's selectivity is apparently is well within "M7" territory. Or thereabouts.

This is when I start freaking out about not getting into any schools next year. :?

Solaris,

what happened to the Soda? I think you should just chill buddy. Your posts indicate that your essays and application package would be top-notch. don't worry (altough I am worrying about my applications too) and get back to chilling out a bit.

LOL - hey, that only applied to the Columbia thread! I'm not posting there until I have my decision. I didn't say I wasn't going to troll the Cornell and NYU threads [my next two schools]. :-D

Sorry, I have a tendency to get carried away, and a penchant for the dramatic. I'm merely trying to spark some discussion here.

Im freaking out too solaris. honestly i am really proud of my accomplishments and what i have done. and if its not good enough for a top 15 school, then ill be convinced that b school is not for me. i gave my essays my all and was very honest.

if cornell does not want to interview me, id say im not getting into b school this year. which will be frustrating, very frustrating. but i wont pout, well maybe for a day. ill move on. ill stay strong.

Not to worry, irishspring. There's plenty more interview invites still to come.

There have been people turned down by Cornell and accepted at Harvard, you know [source: Admissions411] so even if your application doesn't quite click at one school, that isn't any indication of your accomplishments not being worthy of pride. What one school might really like about you, might not mean anything at all to another.

I'm completely neurotic about things so I'm the last person who should be telling you this, but you've got to keep perspective.
This ain't the be all end all.

That is so TRUE! I know two Wharton alums and one of them got rejected at every other school she applied to (all M7s). She had nearly a 4.0 GPA, worked at one of the big 3 consulting firms and went to a prestigious undergrad.

The other one had a great GPA, but from a no-name public school, very little in terms of ECs. She got accepted at Columbia and Wharton. That's it. The other M7 and sub-M7s all dinged her.

They both agree that a lot of whether you get accepted comes down to luck. So do your best, be strategic about where you apply (a good range) and don't worry about it.

Just remember, if you don't put yourself out there, you'll never know what's possible.

Thanks guys, I appreciate the support. I think after 6 months of putting everything I had into this process, and with my applicaitons now out there, Im quick to get frustrated if i dont get an interview invite the first day others are.

You are right. I am confident in what i have done, and do believe i make a great candidate. i got to say strong.
