Just got an interview invite. International applicant and submitted in R3. Initially application was incomplete (missing GMAT score) but got that updated and it went under review on Feb-25. Excited and nervous.


I did mine yesterday and was extremely nervous so did not shine :( But really, just relax because there will be no "surprises". Just go through the questions posted on clearadmit. Best of luck !



Interview is just one part of the application process, so don't stress or try to rehearse. Its going to be conversational. I don't think I did my interview great as I got couple of unexpected questions such as - why is your gpa low?, What have you done to prove us that you will not have difficulty with coursework at Cornell, and i don't think I answered those very well - but I still got admitted.

U.S. business schools have experienced drastic changes in the past few years, and the Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management –– with help from the Cornell NYC Tech campus –– is no exception, according to professors, administrators and students.

Wall Street and financial services firms are hiring fewer people than they did in the past, and more MBA graduates are heading to the entrepreneurial world of Silicon Alley or pursuing their own startups, according to a recent report by New York State comptroller Thomas DiNapoli.

According to Frederick Staudmyer ’77 MBA ’79, director of the Career Management Center, the Johnson school is beginning to see students engaging more with the growing world of entrepreneurialism.

“We are seeing at Johnson an increase in the number of students interested in tech in general and digital media startups and early stage companies in particular,” he said. “The two clearest trends in employment out of Johnson are a continuing increase in the number of students interested in management consulting and in high tech [at both] large and small companies.”

Staudmyer noted the future enhancement of the Johnson School’s profile of entrepreneurialism through its relationship with the Cornell NYC Tech campus –– where business courses will be taught to engineering graduate students and MBA students will be immersed in innovation.

“[The Cornell NYC Tech campus] opens up a whole range of possibilities for Johnson to create a strategy focused around technology innovation,” he said. “We do not have concrete plans yet, but are looking at a range of program and degree options. There is a real focus on fostering the engagement of students with innovative technology companies.”

Bruce F. Falling Sr. Professor of Personal Enterprise in the Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management Prof. Deborah Streeter, applied economics and management, noted that although the pursuit of finding a startup has become more popular in recent years, not all students are eager to pursue such a nontraditional path.

“Cornell students still see entrepreneurship as the path less traveled, and in some ways that makes sense,” she said. “The startup venture involves more ambiguity, less structure, perhaps more risk –– although corporate life can also turn on a dime. ... The positive is that in a startup, students are going to have many more chances to do a wide range of things.”

However, despite the nontraditional and unpredictable nature of the entrepreneurial path, Staudmyer said that many student groups are working to enhance the presence of entrepreneurship on campus and to help students transform their ideas into a reality.

“The percentage of our graduates going into startups is still not large,” he said. “But groups — like our Johnson Entrepreneurship and Venture Capital Club –– are very active and taking advantage of the many resources available to learn about and foster new business ideas and the commercialization of technology.”

Staudmyer said that students engage with entrepreneurialism in a variety of ways: many work on their business ideas and company development during their time at Johnson, while others start their own businesses after school.

For example, during his time at the Johnson, Nick Nickitas grad developed Rosie — a smartphone app that notifies its users when they run low on basic necessity items at home, like groceries and paper towels. Nickitas said he found that the Johnson School helps support students who want to pursue a career in entrepreneurship.

“[By] doing everything from helping us provide marketing, consulting, feedback to the way we are building our brand ... I would say that the student body at Johnson has embraced [the startup culture]. ... It has just been tremendous,” Nickitas said. “I feel lucky to be at a school that supports entrepreneurs the way [the] Johnson does.”

According to Nickitas, many MBA students are motivated to found their own startups because they see startups as a less traditional way to influence society.

“You are seeing now more than ever, as a result of the last financial crisis, students that are interested in making impactful contributions to the world outside of financial engineering,” he said. “These are students that are pursuing –– not in 20 years, but today –– their business ideas and aspirations, and immediately applying the lessons learned in the classroom ... to their startups.”

According to Staudmyer, as a result of the changing nature of the modern business industry, Johnson graduates will have the opportunity to find more jobs across the economy.

“I think the future is exciting for Johnson MBAs, as there are more types of companies hiring MBAs, including a larger demand from technology companies,” he said. “MBAs are thinking more broadly each year about the new economy, how best to use their skills in the current market and what types of careers will make them happy.”

I think the majority of people do receive aid (somewhere around 75% i think)... but its usually a pretty small amount of money.

None for me either. I'll be matriculating at another school so hopefully a spot opens up for a fellow gmatclub poster. :)

This is purely just my speculation, but I think that Johnson gives most of its merit-based scholarships to the flagship two-year MBA program. Any AMBA admits receive a scholarship here?

Mine has been saying "Submitted" with the "Currently under review" paragraph since about a month. I don't think it means something, as none of the domestic invites have been reported yet.

From the admissions director's blog post back in January: the "currently under review" status shows up once the application managers in the admissions office ensures that all necessary information is included in the applicant's file. From there it will get placed into a queue for initial read. Third, it is reviewed by the adcom during Tuesday and Thursday meetings. From there, if you are invited to interview, it goes into another queue to arrange the interview. If you are not invited to interview at that time it is placed in a separate queue, which may be reviewed again at the discretion of the adcom. Once you are invited to interview it is supposed to show up as complete - awaiting final decision.

That being said, we have noticed on this site that the labels are not always timely nor are they always accurate. The post in January also states that they will IDEALLY get 20 - 30 applicants into the reader queues each week. Furthermore, we know that they may still be reaching out to round 2 candidates - so don't worry too much if you are "currently under review" for an extended period of time.

The lack of activity on this forum is pretty scary. What is Cornell doing this year? They are 47 days away from the application deadline, and still only handful of invites. Has Cornell admitted majority of the class already, and now just looking to add few more?

Or it could be that GC members are not applying to Cornell this year. Highly unlikely.
