did you get any confirmation that Cornell received your app beforehand? or was the invite the first you heard back from them?


congrats army!

volitant, when I interviewed at Cornell the invite was the first piece of correspondence i received from them


Just to latch on, when you schedule your interview make sure to ask who will be interviewing you. This year they've gotten more professors involved (which is a good thing). Just make sure you are prepared to answer some of the tougher questions they'll likely toss at you.

From my experience, my interviewer was great we dug deep on my intended field of study but I could tell he was testing me to make sure I know what I was talking about.

Is it possible that come of the veterans on this forum, Round One folks who have interviewed and others who have interviewed volunteer to be 'interview captains' for the Round Two applicants. I suspect in the next two weeks we will be getting a barrage of posts and I hope we can have a few of you out there who are frequent posters and contributors raise your hand when someone needs help.

At least this way we can instruct someone to Private Message you for advice and details related to the interview process. I've interviewed with the following schools:

Johnson
Berkeley
Yale SOM
Tuck
Darden

If anyone has questions related to those schools please PM me. And thanks to the rest of you who step-up as 'Interview Captains'.


I'm a Rd1 applicant and I did phone interviews with Tepper, Kelley, and Johnson. I did an on campus interview with Marshall. And as of Thursday morning I will have done a Skype interview with McCombs.

If any Rd2 people would like to know about my experience with any of those interviews feel free to PM me.

Free of charge while my memories last (except where prohibited by law) :-D

Congratulations to everyone invited to Ross. I just had my first interview last Friday and it was at Ross. The school is beautiful and the weather was really mild, around 40 F. I stayed at the Ann Arbor Regent, a decent place for a decent price. The Moroccan restaurant across the street from the hotel was really good.
I arrived 20 minutes before my scheduled time and waited until I got called in. I was interviewed by a 2nd year student with a consulting background. The questions were standard, run me through your resume, why Ross, Why an MBA now, a difficult team environment and how I dealt with it, what were my career interests, and which one was the last book I read.
The key is to try to make the interview into a formal but a relaxed conversation. The difficult questions come from the follow up questions by the interviewer. Pay attention to the question and prepare a strong rebuttal. The follow up questions were challenging, be ready.
The most surprising thing was that after my 45 minute interview, my interviewer walked out and sat at the lobby with me to chat for another 60 minutes. I thought it was great that he wanted to continue chatting and I saw it as a positive sign. After that, I got together with a Consortium first year student and he gave me a tour of the campus. We had lunch together in downtown Ann Arbor. I met a few other Consortium students and I was impressed, this Consortium association really works. I loved the school and I hope I can get the call and the fellowship.

IN at Johnson! Got the call today (well, missed call, voicemail and then call) and the information about admit weekend in April. I'm guessing that I won't be getting any scholarships since I wasn't informed about the March scholarship weekend. Happy anyway!

Faro,

I got that email from tuck, when I saw the subject line I almost pulled a "half baked" and quit my job and told everyone f-you, f-you, f-you, you're cool I'm out. good thing I read the email first, once my heart came back online, i could only laugh at how quickly my mind wandered to what that admit would mean, then went back to work with a smile on my face, thankful I have a great job, company, boss etc.

Looks like the Consortium draft day is on Tuesday (NOT Monday). Source is Soojin's blog - read the latest post: http://rossblogs.typepad.com/admissions/

And looks like Ross Consortium Calls will begin on Wednesday.

Good luck all!
