if cornell's ranking declined because of its exposure to financial services recruiting, then why did NYU's ranking go up given that their exposure to financial services recruiting is greater?


This is an excellent question and thanks for bringing it up. I haven't looked into the recruiting profile at Stern but it might be that they have stronger ties with the finance community, think inelastic demand (fewer jobs to go around, so the ones with established connections are the first in the money line), or it might be that they were able to place more grads at smaller shops (think Greenhill and Lazard type of places). Again, disclaimer: I don't know much about recruiting at Stern, so this is no more than an educated guess, based on what I've seen/heard has happened at various schools. I think that all finance-heavy schools (other than Stern perhaps) have been more or less affected. A great example would be Wharton.

The mind sees what it choses to see.
If you plot cornell's rankings against feet of snowfall in Ithaca since 1990 I am sure there are people who will observe a correlation. However none of us will contest the claim that the correlation is mere coincidence.

Similarly while plotting change in cornell rankings to the change in index values(DJIA, NYSE etc) , You need to avoid data mining, articulate a clear hypothesis after plotting your graphs and subject your conclusions to hypothesis testing.

I applaud the effort but none of these conclusions are reliable in the slightest.

Sorry to hear that! Did you send any updates to the adcoms after the waitlist. Goodluck with other schools.

No I didnt send any updates. I was taking a quant course since my GMAT score was a little low but I never told them I was doing so. I thought I would just send in my transcript when complete. That was not smart...so learn from my mistake and stay in contact with them. Good Luck to you!

Still no decision for me. Round 3 Int.applicant with no decision (not W/L, not dinged, just no decision after on-campus interview).
Anyone like me??? I'm worried I may not have enough time for my VISA even if I do get admitted.
I already asked the adcom once (they said to just wait)... I'm not sure if I should ask again.
I'm suspecting they somehow mistakenly classified me as a Round 4 applicant, in which case I have no chance because no international students are accepted in round 4.

What makes you think that? Do we know if they have been reviewing WL files concurrently with R4 apps?

Waitlisted R3 Candidate here. Apparently, I was rejected on Apr. 27th. No e-mail, no phone call, i just randomly decided to check the application status from the cornell application website.

Looks like i'll be heading to Darden! Best of luck to all those still on the WL.

I thought I will share some quick thoughts on the waitlist status since I just talked to Admission. It sounded like they accepted some people off the waitlist this week (me included!). The admission will do another status update on Friday to evaluate how many seats are taken and if they can offer more seats. So I am speculating there will be more news going out next week. Good luck, waitlisters.

Lastly, if admission contacts you for a feedback session, be prepared! They will ask for your work progress and anything you have done to strengthen your profile.
