Seems like there aren't many admits on this forum for Cornell and most of the guys who did get admitted are going elsewhere. Is there an official fb group so we all Rd3 applicants can get an idea of how many people are admitted so far?


There's no official FB page, just an unofficial one that some students put together and advertise on forums...as such, there's not much participation. Schools with an official page actually send admits the link, which usually leads to a more active group.



I just checked, there are currently only 34 members in the unofficial fb page - three of which are current students acting as admin for the group. No luck for getting info from that!

I am an Indian - applied and admitted in R2. I dont monitor this regularly but realized that I might be of some help here. Very valid points here on the forum. Though being waitlisted isnt the best thing, it cerainly isnt the worst. As few are saying, many admits for indian applicants might come in R2/R3 (reasons below). I guess the best thing waitlisted candidates can do (which is within their influence) is to be active on WL and leave the rest to admissions committee.

reasons
1. looking at ning, seems for 2yr mba, there are about 4-5 indians. assuming considering only 60% joined ning, that means approx 7 admits. assuming a typical population of 8-9 indians and a yield of 70%, I guess we are talking about 5-6 more admits in next couple of rounds

2. Johnson, unlike other schools, advise international students to apply in R3 and 4.

these are just my suggestions. Also, I would assume that adcom knows what they are doing and hope for the best. Best of luck to all who are waiting or applying in R3/R4.

Yeah, well! Lets chuck this discussion, its time to celebrate for R2 admits!!

Though the numbers presented above don't look right. There are 7 Indian student ambassadors in C'14 & 9 in C'14. I have more than those in my linkedin connections :)

BTW, can you please share the source of this advice where Cornell advises international students applying in R3/R4. Thats interesting piece of info.

And thanks to everyone for all the 'Gyan' of WL being positive and blah blah.... My visible frustration not withstanding, I am trying as much as I can to get accepted! :wink:

Im an international R2 applicant, i was interviewed in January 25th and waitlisted.
Any R2 applicants waitlisted after interview? does it matter on the waitlist if you were waitlisted with or without an interview???
they said the decision are made on rolling basis. So will they review the app again with R3 applicants or every week?
Any one waitlisted after interview that doesnt want to write in the forum, please send me a PM.

I am an international applicant and received an interview invite today. i have applied in R3. any tips from already interviewed internationals? I can not travel to US because of visa procedures, I can travel to countries within two weeks where I do not need visas. Such countries are Turkey, Ukraine, Armenia, Azerbaijan,UAE. Does anyone had an interview in Eastern European countries? or skype interviews? is it bad to schedule an interview via skype?
Any help will be really apreciated :))

I interviewed via Skype, and was accepted. Don't worry about it.

Thanks a lot for reply. I am relieved I thought if I told I preferred skype it would have been a bad sign.
Thanks again

Only reason not to go is if you've completely ruled out Johnson. If it's a maybe - still worth going as you'll be offered a scholarship of some sort. I guess the downside is if you go your deposit deadline bumps up to March 6 from March 27.

Either way, congrats on the invite!

So since you are from a rare breed (Indian citizens w/o residency status and with US Bschool admits) I'm going to take the liberty of firing some questions off. :) Answer any at your discretion :)

Would you happen to have an idea of the general stats (work ex, geography, age, gender, gmat) of those admitted along with you? Would you mind sharing your own?

Did you apply elsewhere and fare as well there? Come across similar stats (even faces) of others admitted there?
Trying to get a feel for what sails and what sinks this cycle. There was somebody called dreamchase here. Wonder what happened to him.

I agree with you completely. I love the Johnson program, but I also love the other programs I'm admitted to and lifestlye wise, I think the other locations (and some other factors) suit me more personally. I don't want to look back and realize I made a dumb decision and placed less important factors over money, but I'm also trusting my gut to a certain extent. A large chunk of money would certainly be a major factor, but I'm not sure at this point. Guess I have to make a decision in the next 2 days per their instructions.

I should have added, I have a long-planned important trip that next weekend falls during, so I'd have to cancel that. Given it's not a guarentee to walk away with the top prize, it's a gamble. In the long-run a trip isn't that big of a deal, but it's not inconsequential. Additionally, as you mention the shortened deposit timeframe is also a factor, as I haven't heard from UVA yet.

If I didn't have the trip planned I would 100% go up and use it as another period to evaluate the program, in addition to my interview trip.

No need to explain - that's a quick turnaround (Feb 20 decision deadline, Mar 1 weekend, by comparison R1 decision was Dec 19, Feb 1 weekend).

It's easier to turn down an invite when you're already in at two other great schools! Best of luck in whatever you decide!

Edit: You could always call them and ask if you can attend the April weekend due to the conflict (unless of course you don't want to go that late due to other schools having deposit deadlines before then). Worst thing is that can happen is they say "no".

Hey, i'm a US R2 applicant who interviewed Jan 28th and was waitlisted. No idea on how the rolling basis review works.

I'm curious if you received any specific advice on your application during your interview? I had an interviewer who made a very directed comment on what I could do to enhance my application, which she stressed twice during the interview. I'm working on following her advice but the entire exchange, and frankly her directness, was completely unexpected. I'm curious if it's typical to receive feedback on weaknesses in your application during the interview? I was prepared to address my weaknesses, and attempted to, but was not expecting feedback...
