Hi everyone!

Has anyone gotten interview invites yet?

Does anyone know how much weight the interview has on the whole admissions process??

i.e. if you get an invite are you well on your way to acceptance or do you still have the most important part ahead of you?

I ask because above someone mentioned that they were waitlisted and dinged after their interview, but reasoned that it might have been because of his GPA or essays.... I thought once they invited you to interview those things would be ancient history and the deciison would be based solely on how well you did in the interview...

any thoughts??

Thanks!


Unfortunately, I can't say that once you get an interview invite it's a slam dunk from there. While an interview invite is a very positive indication to your candidacy, that's all it is - they're serious about getting to know you. A thing to note about Cornell interviews - they're not completely blind unlike most other schools (i.e. the interviewer has notes from the individual who is reviewing your file). I wish someone told me this year, so that being said, expect weaknesses in your application to come up during the interview - low GPA, low GMAT, no prior finance experience, etc. Think in advance how to counter these. There are no official numbers on this, but my feeling is that approximately half of all applicants will get an interview invite and of those, half will get an admit (last round excluded), which is in line with a published acceptance rate in the low 20% for the regular/two-year program.

Hi,

Applied R1, good luck to all!

GMAT: 670
GPA: 3.4

Also, regarding interview/acceptance rates, I believe I read on another site (in an Interview with the AdCom) that the rate is something like, ~40% of those interviewed receive an admittance. For what that's worth.


Best of luck! The acceptance rate you're referring to sounds about right for the AMBA program. Admit rates for the two-year program are usually in the low 20% every year. I have posted all these metrics in this thread (and they're not publicly available yet).

Johnson has really strong ties with CPG firms in particular. Not sure where exactly in marketing your interests lie, but here's my $0.02. Johnson has a very strong network at Johnson & Johnson (we're a core school and they take tons of people every year), as well as Unilever, Colgate and P&G. The school also places marketing interns/brand managers at financial services and healthcare firms - the big ones are AMEX (tons of alums there) and Amgen. The Marketing association has a really strong presence on campus and pretty much everyone who wanted to do an internship in marketing got one last year. Unfortunately, I don't know much about full-time placements for class of 2010. Strategic Marketing is one of the popular immersions as well.

Hi Ariel,

How successful were international students in securing CPG internships? Do these firms prefer local to international students?

Unfortunately most don't but there are a few that do - Colgate is one, not sure about the others, but there are a couple more. That being said, you can always supplement your recruiting efforts with an off-campus job search and that's a lot bigger universe of potential employers, but CPG recruitment on campus is going to be more challenging for an international student.

Ariel,

Perhaps some confusion, the AdCom said: "~40% of those interviewed receive an admittance". Are you referring to selectivity as 23% or the percent of those interviewed who received acceptance?

I guess my concern is - are you saying that 1 in 5 interviewed receive an admit? That seems extraordinarily low.

No, 23% of all who applied. Wasn't aware that they disclose % admitted from interviewed but what you're saying is very much in line with what I said originally (i.e. half of all applying get an invite, and half of those interviewed get an invite, which means that about 25% of the original population got an invite).

Ariel, thanks!

Any thoughts on app volume this year, versus those of years past. Read something from bw that projected a down year, any news from Johnson on this? Trying to hone in on competitiveness this year versus last year. Thanks!

Sorry haven't heard anything through the grapevine, it's really early in the admissions process. You'll likely be better able to deduce that sort of info from reading chat transcripts and intelligence collected on admissions websites. Personally, I don't see a reason why application volume would be substantially different from last year's, but that's just my opinion.

As there are 4 rounds in Cornell, is R2 Vs R3 similar to R1 Vs R2 of other schools? Or there is big disadvantage of applying for Cornell in R3?

Randomness - Yes they have started to send out emails for interviews for R1 candidates.

My applications status still says submitted. I submitted on 5th Oct. Any idea how much time do they take to put it under review? I am just a little anxious because there does not seem to be much communication or action on the application page.

Correct, R2 and R3 for Cornell are similar to R1 and R2 for other schools. No disadvantage applying in R3.

I know exactly how you feel. However, the process is fairly random, you might not get an interview invite until a day or two before the decision notification date for that round. As such your status might not change to under review till a week or so before the decision notification date (not all that likely, but it happens more often than you think). I know it's easier said than done, but it's out of your hands now, don't follow up with them and try not to think too much about it.

I have also applied in R1 and submitted on 4th October. No updates on status though. Maybe those who have already received interview dates can update here on this thread. Thanks!

Hey!
So with everyone getting invites so early when do people actually get acceptances? Will they wait until December? seems like a long wait if you already interview in mid October right? Any chance that they'll release individual decisions before?
