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.


I think Cornell actually has one of the longest threads on GC from what I can see! I think the reason there is not more activity right now is because Cornell has a rolling admissions process. I applied R2 and was interviewed and admitted by the end of Feb. A lot of the active threads now are for people waiting anxiously to hear back from schools with a set notification day, so everyone is naturally freaking out.

Many pages in this forum are not filled with decision notifications but discussion about what food to eat in Ithaca, what car to drive & so on! :-D So don't judge by the number of pages.

BTW, when did Cornell admissions process become rolling!! For R2 deadline was 20th feb. they just overshot it by a week or so in your case.

When schools have set dates to announce results, there is usually a spike of activity around those dates & then it remains quiet. It should be the opposite for a 'rolling' admissions process, isn't it?

Anyways, there is no denying that Johnson is way behind schedule & activity here is pretty low especially after R1.

Nobody has posted so far. Only the international students have received invites.

Anyone else surprised at David's final two choices of HBS and Johnson? One would think that perhaps a school such as Tuck would be factored into his list if he were solely looking at professional and personal fit, especially a school with a tight-knit community.

Speaking of reaching out to alums, I have had at least 3 phone calls with Johnson alumnis in the past several weeks and they have all been extremely helpful, available, and also very honest about Johnson and Ithaca. I don't know how difficult / atypical it is at other schools but I have experienced first-hand what David was alluding to when he wrote: "It was a huge draw to hear that at any point in time, even after graduation, I would be able to reach out to a Johnson alum and they would make time to talk with me."

He also mentioned marketing as a strength for Cornell - this is not the first time I've heard this which is very encouraging to hear. Nevertheless, it is a bit disappointing (as subjective as rankings may be) to not see Johnson ranked in U.S. News's Top 11 for Marketing.

Eh, I wouldn't put any stock at all in specialty rankings. Although it would have been nice to see Johnson jump up a few spots overall, I think they belong in that 10-16 group one way or another (with stern, ross, fuqua, yale, anderson, and darden).

I agree, HBS and Johnson seems odd, I would expect Tuck to be on there as well... I mean, I applied to both schools for similar reasons. Either way, it's nice to see such enthusiasm about Johnson, and a reconfirmation about their strength in marketing.

So i just got to thinking about the lack of interview invite reports going out and I've concluded that it is probably a good thing.

On any normal day throughout application season the adcom has to split their time between interviews and reading new applications. As much as I'd love to think that they can easily switch between the two sides there is considerable mental drain that occurs when you are constantly switching between tasks. By taking the time to focus on reading all applications now (supposing this is what they are doing) and then sending out invitations in batches, later, they will more objectively consider this round of applicants.

Well, at least thats my thought for today.

Thanks. I had basically given up on it as the other two schools I have applied at sent an interview invite within a week. Was pretty shocked to get the invite this morning, but I guess it is par for the course with Johnson and this round of invites.

Within a week? What schools were they? Never heard anyone getting an invite within a week.

UT (McCombs) and Michigan. To be fair though, I applied right at the deadline for both.

when did ur status change from "submitted" to "under review"?

that probably indicates the period of time adcoms spend on reviewing each batch of applications before they make a invite decision.

All of the R1 and R2 applicants can confirm that application status is meaningless, do not read into it. It does not correlate with interview invitations.

Just as an FYI, mine still says "Submitted" and "Currently under review", even after I got my invite.
