the night of the 5th, but if possible you should try and get it in a bit earlier cause there's gonna be intense traffic and uploading at that time and you don't want to risk something going wrong.

Army,

Ditto what johnnygmat says. Last year there was a bit of leeway on this deadline (a few folks submitted a day or two late) but that may not be the case this year. Make sure to have your scores sent in the meantime if you haven't already so there are no delays in application processing.

Good luck!

Hey all! I've decided that I'm not going to apply to my Consortium schools afterward. While it would be great to get the fellowship I know that won't sway me toward choosing them over my other schools. As deadlines approach I realize that I won't be able to get all of the apps finished by the first week in Jan so I had to make a decision about which schools to let go.

Good luck to everyone! Can't wait to see how the fellowship awards go in the spring.

Thanks! I thought so, but wanted to be sure. I'm actually planning to submit in the next day or so, but was curious in case I needed to make a change.

Good luck everyone and happy new year!

All ready to submit, but I had a quick question on the employment part.

I've only worked for one company so I'm unsure if should list all my positions and have several entries, or if I should list the one in this section. Any thoughts?

Diegole,

I would just use one entry and enter your starting position and ending position. If you want to utilize the resume to add more detail that's fine but you'd be better served by keeping it simple. IF you have had a lot of side to side movement (Operations --> Finance --> Marketing) I think it would warrant a bit more detailed explanation on your resume or somewhere in your essay. Otherwise interviews are a good opportunity to indicate you've held many positions without using valuable real estate on your application.

On a side note could you please update your profile to indicate you are applying through Consortium as well as your schools, we would really appreciate it -- we're hoping to collect as much data as possible to make this a richer user experience for all.

Thank you and best of luck on your wrapping up your application!

I don't do this often - if ever, but I wanted to post this link to my last blog post regarding the looming Consortium application deadline this week.

http://money9111.blogspot.com/2012/01/h ... cants.html

It hopefully offers some advice and solace to those who are still pounding away with essays that are due very shortly!

Hey Everyone,

I submitted my consortium application just before the holidays but I haven't recieved confirmation from any of the schools yet. I am still waiting on my membership recommender to submit her recommendation; so will the consortium not send my application to the schools until this is complete? Also, how long does it usually take for the schools to send a confirmation of receipt?

Thanks!

Trey,

Congrats on the submit! I can shed some light on your questions:

1) Consortium will release your application when all materials have been completed in their entirety. They usually do all of the applications at once so expect to get an e-mail from them about a week after you have submitted.

2) Depending on the schools you are applying to they will have different times when they confirm. Some schools will send receipt and an invite to interview all at the same time. From the schools you are applying to you should hear something within a two - three weeks of when you get the confirm e-mail from CGSM. Yale was very quick for me, Johnson sent me an invite to interview with their confirm. And I cannot speak to Stern.

Good luck with everything and don't worry to much if you don't hear anything right away.

Re: Calling All Fall 2012 Consortium Applicants! [#permalink] New post 03 Jan 2012, 15:21
Folks, As we approach the deadline for Round Two I want to encourage everyone to please Update Your Profile to reflect that you will be applying to your schools through the Consortium along with your relevant profile stats. It's very simple, just choose: "Consortium, the" as your school and the rest of the process will be self explanatory. Continue to add as many schools as you are applying to.

I know some of you may not be comfortable displaying your schools & stats on the public roll call and that's more than fine. You have the option of adjusting your privacy settings accordingly. However we DO want to collect as much information as possible for the benefit of forum members.

More important than the statistical information, I want to continue to make an appeal to those of you who have not spoken up to at least introduce yourself and say hello... we are a community of supporters and cheerleaders and we all want gmatclub to be a place you can turn to for support in answering your questions, helping you navigate the b-school process or just being a sounding board when you need to let off some steam.

For those of you who have submitted already, make sure you Update Your Profile to reflect submissions, interviews, etc. Thanks to everyone who has joined in the convo so far and updated their information!

Thank you and please drop a post letting us know when you've hit the submit button. :-D

Thanks! That really helps me out.

I just had one more question. Can you check the status of your mission recommendation like you can with the regular recommendations? Is there a way to see if they have submitted the recommendation or not?

Hey trey,

Congrats on ur submit and your Emory admit as well. When I submitted I wasn't able to see if my Mission recommender submitted her recommendation, but she told me she did a about 2 weeks before I submitted. However the friday after I submitted (I hit submit on a monday, and the deadline was that tuesday) I received an email saying that they didn't get my mission rec. I then contacted the consortium to inquire then right as I was about to call my recommender to send it again I received a call from The Consortium saying they just got it. I think it may have gotten mixed up in their system, honestly. My advice would be to call them up and ask them if they got it. A few days later I received confirmation from Emory, from Stern a week after that with my login info, an invitation to interview from Cornell the first week in December, and confirmation from USC a week after that. Still no correspondence from UCLA though

Hope this helps

Thanks Johnny! This does help a lot. I'll give them a call today and hopefully have everything worked out by the deadline tomorrow.

Anyone applied to Olin via Consortium R1? I have had zero response still, which either means a ding or they process them together -- which I thought they didn't. Just trying to read the writing on the wall here... :?
