When I log on to the online application website, it says:

"Complete - Your application is complete for final review by the selection committee. We will post your final decision or send an update by 9 a.m. Eastern time on the published notification date for your round".

Did any R3 applicants receive an acceptance email or status update in the application?


No email or update. They are expected to release all decisions at 9am EST according to the message on the online application page.


hey Cookiesn
quite a few admits for you. have you decided the school you would want to attend ?


Quite frankly, I am absolutely shocked (in a good way) by how this bschool process has turned out for me. At the start, I would have happily settled on a single admit from any of my schools but I guess I got ridiculously lucky.

Havent decided on a school yet but the scholarship money from Cornell has put me in a serious fix. Not only is it a great school but it works perfectly in terms of supporting my career goals. Before Cornell's decision I was leaning towards Booth, who hasnt offered me any money.

I will probably withdraw from Ross & Georgetown by end of this week.

Waitlisted. Does anyone have tips for managing Cornell's waitlist process?


That sucks, sorry to hear that. Ariel is a current student who got in from the WL last year. She held a chat seminar about WL best practices a little while back. She will probably give you some good tips if you PM her.

I had my interview on the same day, yet I applied in R3. Don't you think it is a little late to get an interview in R3? Are we considered R4 now? Which would automtically mean no $$.


It is late, but one thing I've discovered in this process is that for most schools, the deadlines sometimes get bent. Did you ask your interviewer when you should expect to hear back? That would tell you whether you are considered R4 or or an extended R3. Regardless, if you got your application in by the R3 deadline I don't think they would automatically disqualify you from $$ consideration.

Anyone have any idea when Cornell sends out the emails regarding the background checking (Kroll etc)? I read somewhere on the website that "a background check is required before matriculation". Is there any information in the pack? Mine hasn't arrived yet.


According to ariel, Cornell does the background check two weeks before classes start: kroll-background-check-59285-60.html?hilit=kroll#p807402

I didn't see anything about it in my admission binder.


Correct. Cornell Kroll b/g checks are typically done in the summer. Last year they were right before orientation started. You won't find any info about it in the admission binder, as you have noted. You will receive an email most likely some time in July (not sure of the timing this year) telling you where to go to log in. There is a dedicated Kroll portal and you will need to sign and fax a waiver before the Kroll checks begin. Said otherwise, no one will go and do a check on you without you knowing about it, so hopefully that puts minds at ease.

Grid is sent to everyone. WL feedback over the phone is offered only to a selected few and your chances of getting admitted at that point are much higher than any other applicant on the WL. Your goal is to send meaningful and regular updates so you can get that feedback session request from them.

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.

cong fd! I got an email asking me to call back because I wasnt able to pick up my phone. 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!!!

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 !!!! :-D
