Cul3s - I felt the same way after mine... I just have resigned myself to being bad at being able to "read" interviews.

I'm sure you did fine.

Skye10 - when I went. I stayed at the Statler. I'd recommend ponying up a bit for the Statler just for the convenience. One less thing for you to worry about as you're trying to prep for your interview/find stuff out etc. And since it is literally RIGHT ACROSS from Sayge hall...

I attended 1 class - 1st year strategy. The prof was very energetic. They went over a case during the class. From what I could tell, they did cases semi-regularly (but not every time...). I found that not having the case did not help my comprehension.

The thing I found striking is that the prof always challenged the students to give sharper answers... I think there was only 1 student she did not challenge/follow up, and this student gave an extremely well thought out answer... She actually made a point during the class that she wasn't picking on people, but she was trying to help everyone sharpen their answers. (I found out from a student afterwards that she would say that from time to time).

Dhanur - it depends really when they get to your app.

Apparently, they have 3 "account" managers split by last name A-H, I-O, P-Z. (or something like that). Mine was near the front of one of the 3 buckets in the alphabet. One of the account managers I talked to said that she was trying to mix it up (so like do a's, than h's, etc.). But, basically it really is random, with a slight bias towards being the front of a given bucket.

Was the strategy class by Prof.Scheneider?

If so, I attended the same class and I found the students really energetic and enthusiastic during discussions....

Come on you are too negative :)

Cornell will review your application twice (by 2 different peole) and believe me that does not get done in one day. Don't worry your chance will be better than mine (look at my GMAT scores to the left lol)

SKye - I stayed at Best Western. It's only 5 mins away from campus. They provided all the transport too (from/to airport, from/to sage hall), and I'm guessing they're cheaper than statler (I pricelined it too). Ok, I sounded like their marketing guy lol.

Attended strategy class. Was a little sleepy at first because I don't know what are the prior readings, but soon I got excited again when they were discussing a fresh problem, and broke into small groups discussion.
So it was a mix of lecture, case, and discussion. Pretty standard.

I received an email from Cornell today asking me to reconsider applying for the Park Leadership Fellows program. The email said that they encourage all U.S. citizens to apply. Did anybody else receive that email? Does anybody know if it will it be held against me if I don't apply to the program and submit the prerequisite essay (I'm already a marginal applicant as is)?

Any help would be appreciated.

i'm going all out on my johnson visit and will stay at the stat as well. the strategy class seems like the way to go as i believe the only other two options right now are statistics and managerial finance.

wow, that's interesting elvis...i didn't receive an email about Park and i didn't apply for it.

BTW, for those staying at the Statler (or even elsewhere). If you need advice on good eats, talk to either Michael Corbett from the admissions office and/or the Concierge. I got there in the early afternoon, and I swung by the office, and Mr. Corbett gave me a "life in ithaca" pamphlet with a list of restaurants, and a few recommendations. I then (like 3 hours later) went to the Concierge at the Statler, and he had some recommendations nearby (some in Collegetown, some elsewhere).

I ended up eating at Hai Hong in Collegetown (pretty good (authentic) Chinese food). I figure if I'm going to spend some time in a place, they better have good chinese food. (The place passed muster). It was a short walk, I got to see some of the campus, etc.

Folks,

My package went under review on 16(or 19) Oct 2009.

Until now, I haven't received an interview invitation.

How should I interpret this?
