Hi Everyone,

I'm applying through the Consoritum in R2. I'm just making sure about the process. If they are interested each school will conduct an interview in addition to the consoritum interview...right?

Thanks!


It depends on the school. I believe that many of the schools count the consortium interview as their own; however, there are some schools that require their own interview in addition to the consortium's.

I'm a R2 applicant as well.

As far as MLT, I say still apply or at least reach out to them. Explain your story that you were going to apply to school and have now reassessed. Ask if there is a way you can at least join the waitlist for the program. There are always people who don't accept their position in the program or they drop out. You may not get in, but at least you made contact.


This is probably true. I am just kind of lost I guess. I am coming from an academic research background in healthcare and I do not feel like I am communicating my accomplishments well enough. My GPA is underwhelming as well. I do have good work experience for my field and possible a publication if a journal accepts the article. I feel like my leadership is okay. I think I just really need some good coaching through this process to help me figure out the best way to maximize my background.

well definitely hang around these boards and ask every question that comes to mind. also, spend the spring semester visiting schools and emailing students in every club you possibly think you have an interest in. if you're waiting a year, jump into an extracurricular now - tutor, mentor, serve food, write communication pieces for a non-profit that needs help, etc. also, if you get published, that will be icing on the cake!



to other consortium applicants, i read that the consortium does not share essay 1 & 2 with the schools, the schools only receive the answer to their supplementary questions. this works for schools that ask why them (i guess), but how on earth is ross supposed to make a valid judgment on me with only "what other career would you have" and "tell us about a difficult time" as the essays in which they learn about me? none of these essays offer room to share accomplishments, career goals (in depth), leadership, etc.

no, certain schools still want an individual interview. i know stern does and i believe ross does too.

Hi,

I called the Consortium a while back and they told me that the schools recieve ALL of the essays (1,2,3 and supplemental). I agree it would be difficult for them to make an admissions decision without 1,2&3.

Hope this helps.

that's good to know. they should clarify that in the application instructions section, the way it reads, it makes it seem like the schools will not get the other essays.

re: the interview, i agree that it is school specific, and even case by case. i called SOM a few weeks ago thinking i needed to schedule an additional interview with them (i had already completed my "general" consortium interview). i was told that if they felt another interview was necessary, they would contact me. otherwise, the one interview would be fine.

So i guess i'll kick off the POST submission talk:

Does anyone know when additional interview requests come out?
Results?
Any other significant dates?

Submitted as well!!!

My Consortium interview didn't go very well as my interviewer was painfully awkward. Hopefully this doesn't effect my application too much.

i think at this point, it falls on the individual schools. check if your specific schools have a consortium FAQ section. i would imagine that by the end of feb, you will hear back from your school; mid-march is the time that you will find out if you were accepted to the consortium, and also if you were offered a fellowship (remember you can still get into the school without being accepted into the CGSM program).

From what I recall at the Stern Info Session, they only offer On-Campus Interviews. Can anyone confirm that?

yes, stern only does on-campus interviews, but most consortium applicants who interview with them end up being interviewed on their diversity day - sort of like their big women's interview day - which falls on a saturday if you're in a bind with your PTO like me :)

Gotcha. Thank you!

That sounds like a great day.

Do you know if they give you some choices about when you interview just in case you can't make it to NYC on a particular day?

i'm sure they do, i couldn't imagine having a mandatory interview process and then only giving people one option to complete it.

I believe the CGSM mandatory interview is to assess your fit with the Consortium. Additional interviews from individual schools do occur.

I applied to 4 schools in the first round. Yale reviews all CGSM applications together (regardless of whether you submit R1 or R2), so I don't expect to hear from them until late January/early Feb.

Good luck to Round 2 applicants!
