I received a call from the acting admin director (not randell) at 2:15pm eastern time yesterday 6/2. I applied in the final round and was waitlisted after interviewing. I'm domestic. I had my waitlist feedback the 2nd week of may (which I went to Ithaca for)...updated my resume mid-may...provided an update via email on 5/31/11. I was asked to make a $3k deposit by close of business yesterday. I'm now a Cornellian. Don't give hope if you're still on the waitlist. I honestly believe they are looking at students now that have always wanted Johnson as their top choice and have demonstrated that throughout the process. Even during the 10 min 'offer' call, the admin director was still feeling me out until about minute 8 when the offer was made. I know they will take waitlisters up until the 1st day of orientation, so stay positive. During my feedback they indicated later this month that they would begin to reduce the number of candidates that remain on the waitlist to provide some closure. There's always hope left in Pandoras box. Posted from my mobile device Manager Status: Never give up... Never!

Yep... there and hoping to make it . Do you know how much time it takes for internationals to get their visa and other formalities done? I did read in the accepted.com Wait List Q&A that the school does keep a tab on that situation and hence would let internationals know in time for them to get their visa n funding arranged. (I am an international currently residing in the NE USA).

Well it depends on which of the following categories you fall under:
1) International student in the US on an H1B
2) International student in the US on a visitor visa

If you're (1), then there's a thread on this forum discussing exactly that. I'm not quite sure what the exact process is so I'd recommend that you check there.
If you're (2), then the whole process shouldn't take longer than 3 weeks. Basically the stems are as follows: getting your finances in order, sending those through to Cornell (delivery delay), waiting for them to issue an I-20, Cornell sending I-20 to you (delivery delay), you paying the SEVIS fee online and booking an appointment with the consulate in your area (I'm not sure how you'll handle this since you're already in the US), giving an interview and getting stamped. All done.

A lot of the other schools are hoping to wrap-up their watlists by the end of the month and I'm guessing that Cornell will do something similar too. Not sure but either way, nothing to worry about... you have plenty of time in terms of processing your F1.

Thanks for the info redjam. I was thinking around 4-5 weeks but no surprises in the process.

International candidate here - was waitlisted in the 4th round.

Just had a call with the Admissions director. Although not an outright offer, but I have been asked to commit 3000 $by Thursday, think about the huge financial burden and let them know about my commitment. So hopefully I am in !!!!

Hey guys,
I have noticed that Cornell likes to accept really young applicants. A have many friends with just one or two years of WE that got offers from Johnson. Is it just me, or the school really likes young applicants

Could you let me know if this$3k means you are already given an offer or still need to wait for further decision? Did they say when you can hear the final decision? I am a bit confused about the status here. Also, did they ask any specific question in the phone like during the interview?

Thanks a lot!!!

Thanks Moiuday. No I had no feedback session before the call. Probably because I sent 11 updates in the last 1 month! The director said my waitlist file was the thickest!

As I said it was not an outright offer but mainly trying to gauge how committed I was if an offer is made, although the director did say I am among the files in consideration. Anyway I happy of some progress. And yeah, they will wrap up the internationals by this week most probably.

Hi Sunnymm2011

I was also ask for a $3000 deposit yesterday. I am an international student and got wl at Round one. They just told me they offer me a spot in the 2013 class, and required me to submit the deposit in 24hours. Also, I found my application status changed to Offer after the call. Hope it helps.

Did you get invited to a feedback session with ad-com earlier? If yes, could you please let me know when?

No, I wouldn't say Johnson is younger than say...Harvard/Stanford, but definitely Kellogg, Duke etc. Median work experience is 4 years. Middle 80 percentile is 2 to 7 years according to BusinessWeek. Average age is 27. The number of years of experience Ivan91's "friends" purportedly have and tee19's years are both towards the two extremes of the spectrum.

Hi I did not get the feedback session. BUT I used to ask for a meet with some adcom about my update, and they gave me a chance to talk to one of the adcoms in Ithaca. I dont know if this could be seen as a feedback session (The meeting happend in late April).

One thing can be sure is that if you keep contacting them with a good presense of your progress and your committment to Johnson, they will know and add some point on your application.
