Re: Should I apply through the Consortium? [#permalink] New post 09 Dec 2009, 10:40
great feed back! its appreciated.

is this considered the official CGSM thread? it seems as though there should be one, even though its a little late in the game. is there a way to one of the moderators can merge this thread with a brand new one with one those "Calling all... 2010" threads except one for CGSM folks?

Hey all,

I just had a pants pooping moment.

Are we have suppose to have done our interview already? Are we suppose to request the interview now, before we submit?

For some reason, I thought we could do it after we submit our applications, so it would coincide with (hopefully) the other interview schedules.

Yes and no, the priority date that the Consortium suggested interviews should be completed by is Dec. 20th. I do believe that they want the Consortium interview completed before submitting your application (which gives you until Jan 3rd - your interviewer needs to fill out a form which adds another day and places you right before the deadline). You may want to call them to see if people interview after the submission date and how long after, but my understanding is that they are all done before.

To be safe, if I were you, I'd start contacting alumni interviewers now. It took me a few contacts over the course of a couple of weeks to get an affirmative reply.

In addition to the Alumni interviewers, you can also interview at any of the Consortium schools, even if they don't have open interviewing procedures for their respective programs. I did my Consortium interview at Michigan. I see you're in SoCal and USC is on your short list, you might be able to schedule it with them too. Worth giving a call to their admissions office to inquire.

Just did. Now I've gone from stressing out over essays, to stressing out over essays AND an interview.

I didn't think I'd have to brush up on my HR skills until February. Got an interview at SC next week.

Wish me luck. Hopefully they won't look too cockeyed at me for not being a URM.

You have a solid and unique story, just be yourself. My Consortium interview was pretty straight forward with fairly generic questions they asked. Unless it's doubling as a school specific interview too, they need to make it school neutral so that everyone reviewing your application can get benefit from it. Good luck!

takes a lot to admit that, but i'm sure you'll be better off next year when you feel fully prepared, especially with a 770 GMAT!

You'll be surprised what a 700 + strong leadership/community involvement gets you as a URM. And I know people with lesser GMAT's who got Consortium fellowships and fellowships from other schools.

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.

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.

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.
