Hi all! I'm so happy that I have found the sole Consortium thread on the net :-) I applied R2 to Ross and NYU and am anxiously waiting, like most of you, for interview invitations. Has anyone applied R2 and received an interview invite yet? Good luck everyone!!

Thanks shadows. We'll see how it goes. I am hoping that is true, I have five years WE and have worked in NYC, abroad and am now down here in Puerto Rico. Send some rays y'alls way. For those that interviewed with a Consortium Alumni, how were your interviews? I just wanted to say that the individual I interviewed with was extremely helpful, actually looked over my essays, and gave me feedback and met with me on an additional ocassion to just go over essays. Showed to me that the consortium's mission is life long, anyone else have similar experiences? Best.

Hello Dli1981, wow at your Consortium interview experience. Mine was with an adcom member at Emory and it was the worst interview I've ever had!!! It was stale and sterile! I later called and noted my concerns - which ended up on my app file - and ended up Dinged at Emory (2nd choice cuz of the interview experience) as well as at Stern (4th) but got into my first choice Kelley and third Washu(yet to recv my packet or schorlie info). So dont worry too much. Your profile sounds very good and try to stay optimistic. You'd do great! Did you apply to some back-up schools too?

not sure if other school send something like this, but Darden sent me an email telling me that they're beginning to receive the CGSM applications and will send me a log in to check my application progress. i wonder if other schools will do something similar.

Yea, I got something similar from YaleSOM, Stern, and Olin. No word yet from USC or Ross. Everyone seems to be moving at the rate of molasses..... :(

NYU is having a diversity interview day on 2/20 that I was invited to (round 1 applicant). You should be hearing soon because they said in my email that Consortium applicants need to have their interviews complete by 2/26 to allow enough time for both admission and fellowship decisions. Hope that helps!

Congratulations everyone!! I received an invitation to interview from Ross. Outlaw, I see you were admitted-how was your interview? Did you interview on campus or with an alum?

Hello everyone!!!

I had started the post below on the BW Forum, but I guess this is the place to be at :wink: So here it is!!!

I applied to SOM, Stern, and Ross through the Consortium on round 2. I've been a little confused since I got an email from the Consortium saying that decisions will be given by each school 6-8 weeks from the app deadline and not on each school's official notification date. I called each school and they were not able to give me a date for when the interview for consortium applicants will start or when the decision date is... I have recieved a confirmation email from NYU with a password that they received my app and have received just a random email from SOM and Ross, not specifically related to my app... At the BW forum seems like a lot of people already got invites for Ross... So I'm starting to wonder... but hopefully they are just taking their sweet time with Consortium applicants!!! :-D

Best of luck to all! :lol:

Yeah... SOM stated they will not have a second interview, and according to some earlier posts Stern's interview needs to be completed by feb 26th this year... I guess we can now only patiently wait...! :roll:

So it seems like we should hear from Stern in the next couple of weeks about an interview. Especially if you live on the West Coast...

So it appears only R1s have heard anything on Stern interview invites. Has anyone heard a date for R2s? Consensus says first week of February.

Does anyone know how many people are invited to Stern's Diversity Day 2/20? Just trying to get an idea of numbers - how many people are at this event, how many people interview?
