This is a new low in my life . I will have to go to a school ranked somewhere between 40-45 on UsNews if cornell doesnt accept me.

My fear is when i wake up on June 24 2019 to leave for work at a ramshackle corporate finance firm in a rundown midwestern town, I might sigh......Gee! IF only....cornell would have accepted me...... My life would have turned out different.

Just out of curiosity, did anyone apply, or is actually matriculating to Cornell because of the SGE Immersion? I'm in that immersion this semester, but I'm not a Johnson School student (Im in another school). However I have been throughly impressed with the caliber of people I've met. Congrats to all, and don't discount SGE despite what people might say once you get here (cough...IB).

@superdkny

Few questions

Are you an international student?

When did your application go under review?

When were you invited?

Could you share your profile with us?

Waitlisted Round 3

Has anyone heard about waitlisted applications?
CLEARADMIT says the adcom just started the round 1
waitlist as of 4/21. Is it fair to say that Adcom sees
waitlisters on equal footing with Round 4? I'm a little
low on quant, so I've been taking math classes and stats
classes to send trascripts to Adcom. I can't find an
additional recommender, tho.

How full is the class of 2012? (scary)

Anyone have any info/suggestions?

:o


I would ask adcom. If I had to guess, I think the 2 dates to watch as a waitlister are May 6th when R4 applicants are notified, and June 1st, the R4 deposit deadline. According to Ammin's post, the class is nearly full. I read that as being around 210+ students.


At Destination Johnson we were told that Cornell had a high yield this year (I think 72%). Randall said it makes his job much tougher. Since Cornell is a small school the adcom has to be very careful about who they accept from here on out. Sage Hall has limited space and even they over-enroll it would make for a very difficult situation.

Franklin,

thanks for the info. I checked the class sizes;
2009: 319, 2010: 278. If you're estimating that
~210 students are already slotted after rd 3,
doesn't that mean about *about* 60~100 spots
for the rd 4 and waitlist candidates?

How big is the total waitlist anyways, anyone know?

Best,

There are 238 people in the JGSM FB group (AMBA + 2 year), and maybe ~30 are first and second year students?

The 210 figure might be mine -- I mentioned that I thought "nearly full" meant around 210. The number is very loose and it was based on the assumption that the class size is about 250 with around a 15% acceptance rate for R4. In reality, the acceptance rate is probably closer to 10% and the class size is probably around 300. But again, these numbers are all speculation.

Hi, has anybody received the Sage newsletter yet? Are you guys worried by the fact the school is slipping in the rankings? I am not, and I declined Michigan to attend Cornell, I love their SGE immersion! :) Hope to see you all there soon!!

Spoke to the processing staff. Have been told that they havent forwarded an invite in a long time.Furthermore, The class is nearly full & they dont expect many invites to be sent out in the remaining few days.


Thanks for the update.
I already interviewed early this month, but no decision yet.
I'm a Round 3 applicant, but it seems like I'm being reviewed with Round 4 applicants.
Can't figure out a reason to not post me as W/L. Is this good or bad??


Honestly, I would take this as a good sign. Just hang in there. If they weren't interested they would have just given you a decision.


Is it a good sign for R4 applicants without interview invites as well

I know you aren't worried so for anyone else out there reading this I wouldn't worry about a slip in the rankings. Honestly, the rankings are crap. Supposedly, Cornell dropped because the school reported its job numbers in an honest manner. It's the same reason Wharton dropped. Oh well. The economy sucked. Cornell feeds many students to Wall Street firms. Numbers were down because of the recession and the lack of Wall Street firms hiring Cornell grads.

One of the reasons for the drop, according to arm-chair rankings analysts, is that some schools that jumped Cornell "gamed" the rankings in the way they reported their job numbers. At the end of the day who really cares. Everyone knows that Cornell is a top school. It has an outstanding reputation with recruiters and is a rigorous program.

Haha! That I do not know. I figured for bestofgmat, a round 3 applicant, it could be a good sign because for round 3 applicants the deadline was March 23rd. If bestofgmat hasn't heard, then it may be positive. If adcom wasn't interested they would have dinged him/her on the deadline date.
