I don't know if the feedback session is pre-req, but I get the feeling that it is essential that you do well during the session to get off the waitlist. I received an acceptance call the day after my feedback session; I think I was really lucky in the aspect that I found out so soon.

Anyone who's not received a decision yet??
I'm that R3 Int. applicant with no decision.... I'm becoming quite sure that they've simply forgotten about me.

Could someone also tell me more about the feedback session or the acceptance call?
I'm currently on a biz trip to Sweden and won't be able to take any calls.
Would this affect my acceptance? Could this be delaying my decision?

Why don't you call Randall Sawyer directly...I am sure there has been a mistake and adcoms won't view your call as a negative thing.

I was a 3rd round waitlister that was offered admission last week. I am enrolling and am thrilled to be a part of the '12 class.

During my time on the waitlist I stayed in constant contact with my admission adviser. I probably reached out once of week to either submit something new or ask a question. Specifically I:

- Resubmitted the leadership essay I originally included for the Park Fellowship (it was not reviewed by the admission's committee)

- Rewrote and greatly expanded on my Career Goals and Fit essay, touching on all the big points like Why MBA, Why Now, Why Cornell, Why the SGE Immersion, Short and Long Term Career goals.

- Reached out to faculty, current students and alumni, introduced myself as a waitlist candidate and expressed a desire to speak with them to help better understand how I could contribute to the school and how my interests would be best served at Cornell. Some of these conversations went well enough that the person offered to support my candidacy with the admissions committee.

At one point I was told that an offer of admission could come as late at the day before orientation, so good luck to everyone still on the waitlist.

congrats KSmith
I guess the hard work surely paid off.

I'm not sure if I should do the same though,,, I'm not even waitlisted.
My decision is simply.... delayed..

What do you think guys? Should I submit an updated resume or essays?
Some say it's not worth it if you're just updating one or two lines in the resume. I donno what I should do.

Give them a call and figure out what's going on. I wouldn't worry about submitting any updates as the delayed status is not a reflection of your candidacy. Good luck!

I am speculating that that the next round of acceptance calls for the wait listers will come after the June 1st second deposit deadline.What do you all think?

I would imagine that would be too late for the international wait listed to sort out finance and visas... so hopefully they will be making decisions before then. (holding thumbs)

I hope it happens sooner than later. However,look at what Ann richards said in one of the previous waitlisted chats.

JSM2009, we will thin the waitlist after the June deposit. For example, it's likely that many international students wouldn't be able to secure a visa after the middle of June.

I have sent e-mails to three people in the admission staff but no other from any one of them.
Do you normally send profile updates to mba@cornell.edu ? or to those you already have acquaintance with?
Anyway, no reply, no decision, nothing.
