Blue Robin- Double check on your GMAT report as Nola 10 pointed out. And in the event you retook the GMAT, definitely send them the official report, but in the meantime also send a scanned report to the adcom member who is your application coordinator. Good luck!

I'm seeking advice. Is it better to interview off-campus with an alumni or on-campus?

Ideally, I'd prefer off-campus due to less strict interviewing time constraints and my grueling work schedule, but if on-campus is more valued, I might consider that instead.


My impression is that Cornell does value the on-campus interview (perhaps more than many schools). Ithaca isn't a cosmopolitan metropolis, so they want to make sure people know what it's like and will enjoy their 2 years. I think this also is a function of where you're located. I met a guy from Philippines at Cornell who had been accepted follow an off campus interview and was visiting to decide which school to attend. Otoh, if you are in the NE US it might not reflect well if you don't make the trek.

Does anyone know where I can find more specifics about the Park Leadership Program?

The literature on the website is somewhat vague about the course work. A few questions I have:
* How many classes does the program contain?
* Are the classes and the service projects on top of a regular class schedule, or do they take the place of other courses?
* Does the program have any obligations during the summer that may affect internship opportunities?
* If selected for a Park interview, how soon are the decisions sent out? Is it prior to or after the initial deposit deadline?

The program sounds like an amazing opportunity, but I want to make sure I understand it.

Appreciate any help.


i was actually chosen as a park fellow a few weeks ago at finalist weekend 1 so here is my feedback on it:

*about 30 sessions over the 2-year period

*on top of a regular class schedule

*no summer obligations per se, but you may want to work on your park project then or something

*everyone who is invited to a park finalist weekend is already accepted. you will likely be called significantly prior to the decision deadline, notifying you of your acceptance and asking you to plan to attend the finalist weekend.

PM me if you have any more questions

Hmmmm.. a few things.

No interview doesn't equal to ding. It means WL or ding. So hope is not lost. It just means more waiting and more ambiguity, which we dread the most. And interview doesn't mean admit. Actually, similar options apply - WL, ding, or admit. It just means more likely to be admitted sooner. So yes, I can be drinking as well.

Also, how can one receive an invitation on a decision notification date? If a R2-er gets one on 2/15, is he in R2 or R3? In other words, it doesn't make sense. I know for a fact that people with stats less stellar than mine got into HBS. But that doesn't mean that I should apply and expect an admit.

The app season began back in October last year. Most of us applied to R1 or ED for a few schools, and while some of us were really successful (I can name kevintay, bless his admit from Johnson and Tuck), some of us weren't, including myself. People feel edgy because of unpredictability of the outcome, NOT the nature of the outcome. I'm all for being nice. But at the same time we are all big boys and girls.

For everyone that applied R3 (Jan. 4 deadline), there is still plenty of time for interview calls over the next few weeks. My friend was admitted last year, and I just spoke with him regarding the deadlines. He indicated that his interview invitation came toward the end of February. There is still plenty of time! I know it's just more waiting, but atleast there is hope

Has anyone admitted registered for Destination Johnson ? Is it compulsory for all student including international students ?


It is not compulsory but is highly recommended. You get to know about housing, mix with students, get to know about the clubs, etc. Most of the internationals who are not in the US can not make it to DJ. Hey, but guess what, if you go there, you'll get a bag free ! ;)

i got an interview invite about 2 weeks ago, and i recently went to a local happy hour arranged by the admissions people, and i'd say half the people at least didn't get an interview yet and they were told by the admissions folks that they haven't gotten to them yet, and it's not bad news.

don't panic yet guys, there's plenty of time left.

Dudes/ettes, as a fellow interviewless R3 applicant, I know what you're going through. This past weekend I was really bummed thinking about all this and how I don't have a single admit yet. The usual thoughts like, "so much for my future" and "I suck".

I decided look through last year's thread, however, and discovered that the R3 applicants went through the same thing. Other than a random early invite here or there, the R3 invites didn't really start until the first week of March, and they continued right up to the decision date. One person didn't even hear anything on the d-date, and then got an invite about a week later! With respect to the timing, last year lots of people were saying, "only 2 weeks until decision day, I'm screwed." Then they got an invite that said they would have to complete their interview by a certain date (as short as 2 days) if they wanted a decision by d-day. The alternative was simply that their decision would come a little later.

This all gave me a great sense of relief. Given that the GC membership is probably stronger on average than the overall applicant pool, it seems likely that the same thing is happening this year.

Thanks guys.

Brainhurt and others who got invites - Good luck!!

To all others, who are still waiting (incl. madzy) - hang in there. I subitted 1st Jan and went under review a couple of weeks later so we know that long wait is modus operandi as far as cornell is concerned! All the best!

Thank you! I actually didn't get any options. They asked me to contact my application manager to schedule the interview. They did mention to do so as soon as possible. I am trying to sort out when can I actually travel before giving them a call. Will keep you guys posted on that matter.


No options specified?!? Da-da-duuuuum!! (that's a dramatic sound effect.) The mystery grows!

Nothing compared to what's happening over on the Ross thread. 6 pages of utterly useless speculation!! (but still enjoying every bit of it).

I've been biting my tongue for awhile, but I think this needs to be said. I went through this process in round 2, and am waiting for a decision from another school, so I've been in the same boat. I know how difficult waiting is, and the anxiety that it brings. That said, the decision deadline is more than 2 weeks away, and it's been established in this forum that interview invitations can be sent up to and including that deadline day. I don't have any personal experience here, but if I were the AdCom (or another person answering the phone who sees AdCom members multiple times daily), I would not take well to receiving an e-mail (or worse, a phone call) from someone who is waiting anxiously to receive an interview invite. To me, such a thing would be an indicator of impatience, immaturity and inability to follow directions. If you were going to receive an interview invite eventually, I would think that would be a strike against you, and if you weren't, even worse. It may be that this process is so large and complex that perhaps they don't or won't connect the dots, but is it really worth the chance? Whoever answers the phone is likely going to tell you what you already know - that interview invitations can still be sent out over the next two weeks. So it sounds to me like a risk not worth taking.

Again, having been there myself, I know this process is stressful. My advice would be to find something to distract you from the minute-by-minute grind of waiting for invites, news, etc. There's no point in stressing over how long it's been since your application went under review (I may be wrong, but I highly doubt there's a scientific correlation there). Just be patient and show everyone at the school, from the AdCom to the staff in the Admissions Office, that you are who your application says you are - a qualified and poised future business leader.

Best of luck to all who are still waiting!
