Those who did not write short paragraphs below the chapter headings, do they have only headings and chapters and do they have more chapters/ headings as compared to others because of the limit on essay length?

Not to create anxiety among those who haven't received invites but I got an email on the 21st for an interview. I applied the day before the deadline.

Thanks for the kind words. I managed to stress myself out checking the forum repeatedly. It doesn't seem like there is any rhyme or reason to how they are going out so don't stress too much, it's out of your hands for the time being.

Hey guys,
I thought we could benefit from having a roll call with details of all applicants as they get interview invites etc. just so we can have an overview of how the admissions process at cornell is progressing.

Similar to to other threads in the forum, I have attached a link to a spreadsheet to which you can enter your details.
Thanks to nink for this template http://gmatclub.com/forum/members/member-58260.html

Hope this helps!

I am an international student. I got an interview invite on 12th and did it last week.

Just wanted to share some insights as I have received quite a few from the members on this website :).

They asked the typical questions: why an MBA, why Cornell, why now, what are your career goals, etc. After all the hours spent on the essays and on self reflection, answering those questions should be pretty straight forward.

It is a blind interview, so the interviewer does not get to read the essays, and only has the CV. In addition, he has a few pointers from the school about the aspects on which he should focus. For me, it was mostly to test the weakest aspect of my application, and check if and how you have improved on it.

Now waiting for the final decision, quite scary!

Good luck to all!

Have a query regarding Re-Applicant Status.


I applied in year 2008 for admission to 2 year Full Time MBA program at Johnson Business School but was denied the admission . I would like to know that If i am applying this year ( 9th Nov 2010 ) then whether I would still be considered a re-applicant and I would have to write 4 essays or I would be considered a new applicant and I would have to write 3 essays.

Thanks in advance.

Hi All,

Applying R2, had a quick question for current students...how important is it for prospectives to visit Cornell? I don't think I would be able to visit but is Cornell one of those schools (Tuck, Darden, etc..) that really wants prospectives to come on campus before applying?

Any inputs will be appreciated!

Thanks,


That depends on where you live but for the most part yes, they would like you to come visit - unless you live far (west coast, overseas, etc), then you're probably off the hook.

Roll call updated.

ventivish, I've included interview invites as well. Please let me know if I've missed anyone and congratulations to all who already got invites. Everyone else, just hang in there, I personally got my interview invite two days before the actual decision notification date last year.

Hi All,

Question for people who have already submitted their apps / Ariel / Anyone who can give a knowledgeable answer :)

In trying to cut down the number of words, if I use SHA instead of School of Hotel Administration, or ORIE instead of School of Operations Research and Information Engineering, will the Adcom know what I am talking about / accept it ?

I understand that adcoms usually frown on abbreviations, but are these types acceptable - given that these are "elements" of Cornell ...

Thanks.


Is there anywhere else you can cut? I'd say these abbreviations are not all that common, you just don't hear people use them very often imho.

For those that got interviews did you get an email saying your ap was "under review" prior to getting the interview email? Or did you just get an interview email.

Thanks!

I would use the full names on first reference and in brackets the abbreviation and then just the abbreviation in following references. There must be other places to cut words i was a newspaper editor so i know there always are extra words there if you look hard.

ariel,

Hows the marketing program at Cornell?
i know its not a marketing school, but whats yours take on it has a student of Johnson.


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.


Great points. But you seem to have forgotten the most obvious firm that recruits marketers from Johnson... SC Johnson.
