Quote:
In some cases where a Consortium applicant has interviewed elsewhere, we may be in touch with you for an in-person interview or telephone follow-up discussion. These invitations will be going out shortly. You should interpret this interview invitation as a positive sign. If you are NOT contacted for a Darden interview, it means that we have all the information we need to help us make an admissions decision. Admission decisions will post with Darden's Round 1 decisions, January 12.

Interview = positive sign
No interview = we know you suck

Got an invite today from Darden.

About Ross - because I am waiting for their's too - I haven't heard anything. I responded to Jon Fuller (who sent the email saying thanks for the app blah blah) and asked him about the details - he said it takes their office awhile to process them and invites may be going out as late as the end of January! But he did say they hope to have them finished by mid January, if there is no delay in processing...

I received word from Michigan on Monday that the interview day has been oushed to February. It was in response to an inquiry, and he didn't provide any additional details.

Doesn't gmatclub say where we're applying to the left of our posts by our names?

It mentioned that my transcripts were missing, which I found odd, though the status reads complete. Any thoughts regarding why this page is so inactive? I know that more people applied to the Consortium's first round, and as we are dealing with different dates than the conventional candidate, it would be helpful to know whether we're on pace.

My Darden recommendations said "incomplete". I emailed the contact for apps and she said consortium apps don't always hit indicators to make certain fields "complete", but she also said not to worry, my app was complete. _________________ Strategy Discussion Thread | Strategy Master | GMAT Debrief| Please discuss strategies in discussion thread.

No that is just standard scholarship money from the school, not related to the consortium. Later on I'll find out about consortium status.

Sweet deal if you can get the consortium fellowship on top of that. How would that work? I wonder if you could use CMU money for non-tuition.

Either way, congrats.

Maybe the consortium had some better marketing last year and attracted more applicants. Most people I speak to who are in/done with/applying to b-school have never heard of CGSM.

I REALLY don't think I would get to keep that scholarship money if I was also offered full tuition. After all, the money for the consortium fellowship doesn't come from the consortium, it comes from the school. The school just agrees to award it to cgsm ppl. If they did let me keep both that would be super sweet. But either way, Tepper is ranked 6th on my app, so I can only hope that one of the higher ranked schools will offer me a fellowship. Like for example!!!

Curious. I hadn't heard of it either, until my brother, who's applying next year, mentioned it to me. Perhaps the problem is simply that we were amongst the few to submit early. Most of the ppl I met at the various diversity weekends are submitting round 2. I expect more activity after the 5th.

Like TUCK for example!!!

Kegewe--Hopefully you'll gain admission to the program of your choice, but if not, you may luck out with financing. During my visits, both Yale and UNC confirmed that they offer Consortium fellowships + to students they are most interested in. Perhaps Tepper will do likewise.

True, this thread does seem really slow. I'm applying Rd.2, so on my end there is not much to discuss unfortunately.

I know it differs by school, but ball park, do you think we should start hearing about interview invites about a month after the consortium deadline? I'm applying Jan.5, so maybe in the Feb.10-15 range?

What size/type of font are you guys using for the essays?

The directions say no more than two double spaced pages for each core essay, but nothing about font size. I'm having difficulty fitting everything in with Times 12, I'm thinking about going to 11 but not sure if that's pushing it.

Times 12. I would recommend not pushing it.

Let's say someone reads 20 essays before yours all in 12. Chances are 11 will be noticed.

Are you refering to the Consortium interview? I submitted mine in October and it still doesn't register as complete.

I've heard of similar responses, seems like it varies. My interview registered as complete within 3 days of completing the interview, but a friend of mine completed an interview sometime in early November and it still doesn't register that it was completed. I'd probably reach out the Consortium or interviewer to inquire about the status.

I did my interview in November, and nearly two weeks later it still showed incomplete. I called the school, and it turned out that my interviewer didn't submit his review. It went complete the very next day. I was told that interviewers are required to submit their reviews within 72 hours, so if it's not showing up you should definitely make some inquiries.
