Q: What is the Consortium?
A: The Consortium for Graduate Study in Management is the country’s preeminent organization for promoting diversity and inclusion in American business. Through an annual competition, The Consortium awards merit-based, full-tuition fellowships to America’s best and brightest candidates. In conjunction with our member schools, sponsoring companies, and our elite group of MBA students and alumni, The Consortium has built a forty year legacy of fostering inclusion and changing the ethnic and cultural face of American business.

Q: How does the application process for the Consortium differ from a regular school application?
A: Common Application - One application allows you to apply to up to six Consortium schools. (University of North Carolina- Chapel Hill requires that all applicants submit both The Consortium application and the UNC application)

R1: November 15, 2011
R2: January 5th, 2012

Real Time Roll Call for Consortium (separate from other discussions)

Real Time Stats for Each School

Tiered Application Fee - Using The Consortium common application significantly reduces your application fee costs. You may apply to up to two member schools for $150, three schools for$200, four schools for $240, five for$275, and six for 300 (source: Official Consortium website) Essays - There are 2 common essays as part of the Consortium application. Additionally, each member school you are applying to requires at least 1 separate, school specific essay. Interviews - New for 2011 - 2012 Consortium interviews are NO LONGER required. Check with your Consortium school for their interview policy. Q: Can I apply even if I am not an under-represented minority? A: The Consortium seeks applicants who align themselves with its mission. Being a minority is not a prerequisite as long as the applicant has demonstrated a commitment to the Consortium's mission in his or her life.

[#permalink] ### Show Tags 14 Mar 2012, 15:22 6 This post received KUDOS Interesting, I'm in at Ross!!!! no fellowship but they are giving me roughly 50% of tuition. Minutes later though, Tepper calls and offers me the CGSM fellowship even though they had already offered me a 75% tuition scholarship, I declined them this morning, and I ranked them 5th. However, Fuqua offered a full ride, and I'm still invited to Cornell's second scholarship weekend next month... (I didn't know there was more than one). So 1. I'm a bit confused 2. I feel blessed 3. I am pretty sure I'm sticking with Fuqua 4. Decisions suck, they're not hard, but if you're like me, you don't like disappointing people. So I think I'm a Blue Devil but that removes me from the CGSM network sadly , but I'm definitely happy I got into almost all my schools Me aside, congrats to all the folks that have received admits and mucho . No matter where we go, like my buddy Tolu said, we will definitely change the world. It's been great being on this journey with you all.

We would be remiss on this Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday not to recognize the tremendous sacrifice of Dr. King, our parents, grandparents and others who made 'the dream' possible for young people like ourselves. The Consortium Graduate Study in Management is founded in the ideals of Dr. King and his supporters of the civil rights movement. Today is a day to respect, appreciate and serve the mission of equality and leveling the playing field. Whether that's volunteering at an MLK event, updating your Facebook status or posting a note of appreciation on GMATclub we should all serve in some capacity.

Most, if not all of us will move on to heights that the majority of our brothers and sisters have not even dreamed of. With this opportunity of pursing a Masters in Business Administration comes the welcome burden of making sure we are leveraging our education to elevate the future of those that follow our footsteps -- let us all remember that. On this day, I encourage you to take a step back from your daily grind and reflect for one minute on your past... and dream about your future. We are lucky... without visionaries like Dr. King and Dr. Sterling Schoen (founder of the Consortium) your dream would not be so close to reality.

“We must remember that intelligence is not enough. Intelligence plus character-that is the goal of true education. The complete education gives one not only power of concentration, but worthy objectives upon which to concentrate. ”

― Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Had just prayed and asked the Lord to please have someone call me and notify me tonight because I just didn't want to endure a weekend of mystery, then I got off work early, and went to bed (with my phone) to take a nap in preparation to work tonight. Was just relaxed enough to fall asleep, and the phone rang....812 area code. This is tricky because I live in this area code and have friends/family in this area code. It was Jim Holmen from Kelley letting me know that I GOT THE CONSORTIUM FELLOWSHIP!!!! Loving it right about now. Now I'm sitting on 2 full rides. What a wonderful place to be!
