I hope that's that case. I heard from a current student that Cornell has been GMAT focused lately, and trying to increase its average score.


That's discouraging. I don't plan to take that again anytime soon and was hoping other things would be strong deciding factors.

Your score is 16 points higher than their average. You shouldn't get worried at all.

I'm an Indian guy in IT and so I'm probably 10-20 points below the average for my over-represented profile and geography :)

Hey All,

I selfishly read this Cornell thread through my whole application process. Now I'm a proud new student in the class of 2015 and new member of gmat club. I know; I did it backwards.

Any others confirmed for the Welcome Weekend?

Domestic R2. Got my decision a few days before the Feb 25 notification date.

Any commentary on the latest US News rankings that came out on the 12th? Cornell maintained the 16th spot it saw some movement above and below. Michigan is showing some weakness, Anderson is a good school but too regional, I'd say. With the new globally-minded Mr Dutta at the helm at Cornell, I think it's got a decent shot at penetrating the spots above it.

The only thing that struck me as odd was the peer rating score (4.1 out of 5), you may have to be a compass member to see that data. On Business week, they were ranked #2 by students, but much lower on usnews. I'd love to see the raw data so that I could figure out why there was such a large disconnect...

Yes there was some movement, but nothing significant in my book. In my mind, the schools 10-16 are lumped together in a tier with the order shuffling. I've met people who've chosen Johnson over schools like Darden and Duke, so there's not a huge difference between #11-12 and 16, just like I don't see much difference between #4-9...they just tend to be the usual suspects in a different order.

Meanwhile, with Emory placing 18th, they're making strides to be mentioned in the same breath as McCombs, UNC, and Tepper. Won't happen overnight, but a few more years of placing in the top 20 could do the trick.

You should fly to NYC/Philly and drive from there. That's what I did during my class visit. and I am from Houston as well.

Thanks for the advice. I ended up buying a ticket to Newark which was slightly cheaper and slightly closer to Ithaca than La Guardia. Ended up with a ticket for 375 so even after rental car/gas costs it will be cheaper than flying into ithaca. Plus I likely would have needed to rent a car anyway.

And just an fyi, I was told that the latest you should interview on campus to be considered before the deadline is the 28th and even that is pushing it a bit. I ended up scheduling an interview for the 26th because the students are out for spring break the week before. I figured if I am going to travel all that way then I should get the full experience of a class/tour etc.


Are there a lot of open spots available to schedule an interview? I think you can get a pretty good estimate of how many people have been invited for an interview.

There were about 5 times on the 26th that I had to choose from.

Are u applying for AMBA or the 2-yr program?

One of my friends applying for AMBA got an interview invite recently. But her application has been under review bascially since her submission according to her application status.

It's said the competition is more fierce among applicants for the 2-yr program. I'm still waiting for my notification. My status was changed to "under review" just last week so I suppose the adcoms just started processing a new batch of applications. so it may still take the adcoms some time to send out invites. if my friend can get an interview, i think i definitely have a shot....:)


I am applying for 2-yr pgm. My status too changed a week back to "under review". Don't take me wrong, but if your friend gets it doesn't mean you will get a shot. The reason why I am saying this is I have experience, my friend with less academics(and overall profile) got into Emory but I didn't get an invite too. Looks like, luck too matters :(

I wish all the best for both of us.



Does your friend have a GMAT score comparable to yours? I heard from a Johnson alum that adcom send out invites largely based on GMAT but make admission decisions with more pool diversity concerns....

Anyway, wish u good luck! I will keep you informed with my status.


His GMAT is jus 10 points more than mine. Guess that shouldn't make huge difference, esp when my GPA in UG is far better than his. Even I will update you if I see any change in my status.

Does anyone know which tech companies recruit at campus? I was surprised to not see Google or Apple in the list. May be product management folks can chime in??

Some say that a higher GMAT score can justify a lower GPA. So somehow GMAT is given a greater priority compared to GPA in application assessment. But i don't think you should worry very much as long as ur score is higher than the average score of this year's applicants.

I went through the interview invites history and statistics. All the invites for intl students went out on Thursday typically in the afternoon. So we shouldn't panic until at least 4 hrs later..:)

For those who have interviewed on campus, where do you stay? I saw there is a hotel on campus with $280 rates...if this is where you stay, does Cornell offer reduced rates for prospective students?

I found a decent price ticket, but I'm leaning toward meeting with an alumni off-campus.

I don't know for certain here, but that point does not surprise me. I have a friend at Ross, and he is working in the Valley this summer. He recruited exclusively for tech product marketing, and he said that most of his interviews were phone screens, and second rounds were on site. The companies were looking for one or two candidates, so they didn't spend resources to fly out to Ann Arbor. That might also be the case here with AAPL and GOOG...they have so many schools they can recruit at nearby (USC/Berkeley/Stanford/UCLA/Santa Clara/Washington) they might prefer using the phone screen then on site approach for schools not named Harvard.

For my interview in Feb I stayed at the Holiday Inn on S. Cayuga Street. It was $215 all in after taxes. Free shuttle to get you to and from Sage.

I don't have much more to add to this thread, but I came across Chao Wang on Linkedin. I'm not yet allowed to post URLs on GMATclub but search him in linkedin. He interned at Google and now works there. Might be worth contacting him and posing the same questions.
