Anybody aware if Cornell has an aversion to applicants without clearly defined career paths. To elaborate: is there any risk if, in the career essay, an applicant gives a rough career path rather than a clearly defined one (i.e., "I'd like to work in XYZ industry with the following key aspects in the job" verses "I want to work in X industry doing Y job with A, B, and C characteristics")?

Any light to be shed on this would be appreciated. Thanks!

Nitty Gritty Cornell Application question [#permalink] New post 13 Aug 2010, 01:20
Right, so a quick question: for the "education" section do you only fill in your undergraduate University or do you also fill in your high school as an institution?
Same goes for the transcripts, do they need high school transcripts?

Thanks for your help!!!

I haven't applied to Cornell so I don't know if there's something in particular with their application that's prompting your question, but based on my applications to other schools I don't think they want to know your high school info, and almost certainly not your high school transcripts. The other apps I've seen specify "university" or "undergraduate".

Cornell is a great school and I am planning to apply round 1. Just out of curiosity, any thoughts on their unique question 3, table of contents..how are the fellow applicants planning to approach this? I was thinking of creating a list and sub-headings to highlight that event.

I thought they said 20% or so during math camp (I didn't go but that's what someone told me)? Where did you hear the 15%?

List and sub-headings would work. I don't think there's one right way of doing this, they just want you to be creative, so try to highlight points in your life that you want them to focus on (also to reinforce the brand you've already created throughout your app).

As an aside, I apologize that I haven't been on as much as I'd like, but orientation is crazy at the moment (I'm a first year student at Johnson). I'll be posting a roll call thread that is formatted as per GC rules and we'll get some lists going. I appreciate your patience and in the meantime, I'll try to address promptly any questions potential applicants might have, so post away :)

ariel, I will be the first one to ask I guess. I know you are pursuing 2 year program, but do you have any idea about the acceptance rate in AMBA program? I would like to visit the campus, but I can't schedule any date yet as Cornell has not opened its school visits for next year students. Any idea when do Cornell open school visits for prospective students.

getmba, I'd imagine school visits would commence within a month or so. I also know that Ann Richards from Admissions will be on the road pretty soon to meet with applicants across the country, so I'd also watch for MBA forums and events where JGSM might be participating as well.

Regarding the AMBA program, it is my understanding that it is slightly less selective in terms of percentage, but admitted applicants tend to have higher GMAT scores on average, more work experience and advanced degrees. The AMBA students I have met so far are all PhD's but I'm sure there is a fair number with masters degrees only. Keep in mind that AMBA's don't have immersions or internships and as such are not as well positioned for a career switch as a student from the two year program would be.

Thanks for the info, ariel! I was under the impression that AMBA students do a 2 week internship in winter as part of management practicum. Thanks for the insight on Phd vs Masters students in the program.

Initially I was interested in Cornell but now I'm not so sure after hearing and reading somewhat dismal things about their employment rates after graduation etc. Can anyone comment on recruiting at Johnson, specifically regarding bulge bracket and other banks? Any push by the school to get more companies to campus?

You are aboslutely correct - there is a two week internship as part of the management practicum for AMBA's (in January if I'm not mistaken), but it's debatable whether that experience is sufficient in length to gain a broad hands-on exposure. For perspective, students enrolled in the two year program get 10 weeks of internship + immersion learning in the spring semester of their first year. Generally, the AMBA program is recommended for candidates who already have a specific idea about what they want to do post-MBA.
