Did you get an interview from NYU? Did you apply round 1 or 2?

Also got the email from Yale. How about the sender "mba.diversity"? Yes, i realize we add diversity, but man....

what was everyone's impressions of the consortium schools when you visited? Did you go during diversity weekend?

I've visited a lot of schools. I find it interesting to go for the diversity weekend and then stop by again on a regular day... When the "blinders" are off, things are very different...

I didn't go during diversity weekend, but I asked students about how their school managed this "issue." I tried to ask students to whom diversity in ethnicity, gender, and sexual orientation would be important.

I felt I did get a better sense of what to expect in the program, but I also think you're at an advantage to participate in div w/ends since you have an opportunity to stand out from the thousands of "regular" visitors.

Received an interview invite from Ross. Oh yeah!

Does anyone know if they school views interviewing on campus favorably? I am not too far from the school (5 hours or so).

I recommend an on-campus interview, especially if you aren't far and/or you haven't visited campus yet.

Thanks shadowsjc. For those still waiting for NYU, I just got an invite for an interview. There weren't too many options for dates but i'll be flying out next month for it. I kind of wish it was sooner.

Hey Round 1ers

I know I've asked this but I'm still pretty in the dark about this. Do we get any updates at all from anyone (status updates, interview requests emails, etc) from CGSM? Or do we wait for the schools to contact us? Is there a way to track our application, as in, do we have access to school websites or any of their tracking information?

Essentially, I guess I'm asking the same question again.

What do we do now? Who talks to us now? CGSM or the Schools?

talk to the schools.. from what I remember, if you log into the cgsm application it should say "sent to schools" (or at least it did last year). once it says that...the consortium doesn't play a part.

it wouldn't hurt to contact the office and ask for a general time frame for contact.

It's just the schools. You should eventually receive some form of update from the schools. Some were standard with their traditional applicants and some were customized to the Consortium. But after everything is sent to the schools, it's out of the Consortium's hands.

Thanks!

660 GMAT/3.41 GPA/4 years WE/Large public University with 2 degrees in Marketing and Communications
Lots of internships/projects in Undergrad relating to my post-MBA industry
Currently work in Digital Marketing for a Top 20 Commercial Bank with ample leadership/management
Interested in transitioning into the Media and Entertainment industry
Lots of relevant volunteer experience to my goals

I had to have a really strong support in my projects, volunteering, and WE leadership to offset a weaker GMAT.
