12 more days left. I am not sure why its taking them this long to get invites out. Admitted applicants need to prepare for DJ also. Very Sloppy Cornell.

Got an invite this morning, domestic. Email says to schedule one within 2 weeks. Any idea about the interview slot availability?

Anyone knows whether the interviews are blind (resume only) or based on your application/essays?

Also, any idea what % of applicants get an interview and what % of interviewees get accepted?

Thanks!

Blind, with possible notes from your app reviewer...

Well... what if he's addicted to crack?

Use your best judgement when it comes to crack... Are you more professional after smoking, or while going through withdrawals?

LOL. Did you guys interview on-campus? If so, are interviews conducted by adcom or students? Seems like it can either be a student or adcom.

Still lot of time left. I won't start worrying until mid-next week. I certainly believe that we will see lot of activity next Monday.

CobraKai already brought back these stats once before, so I'll do the honors this time. Based on last year's stats, getting an interview bodes well for your admission chances, but keep in mind app numbers are likely higher this year, yield rate could be anywhere, and these numbers are for all rounds:

2200 applications, 700-800 interviewed = 32-36% interviewed.

Acceptance rate of 27% = 594 offers. So 74-84% of interviewees are accepted.

Thats a great acceptance percentage. I imagine a lot of people who don't have genuine interest in Cornell will withdraw their application if given an interview (assuming other acceptances) due to the deposit requirements ($1500 bucks within 2 weeks of admit).

Anyone have insider info on the number of deposits put down yet?

*BTW, received an interview this week.

I have my interview next week on campus. Being that I got dinged from HBS, CBS, STERN, and Kellogg, I need to make this one count as its my last iron in the fire. Does anyone have a good source for Cornell specific interview tips? Things to expect? any thing they thought went over well with the Adcom or 2Y that conducted the interview? Any input is greatly appreciated.

I used the clear admit interview guide and thought it was worth it.

I updated my profile. Currently work for Ernst & Young's Asset Management Practice serving hedge fund, private equity, and mutual funds. I am also a Certified Public Accountant in the New York. Although I feel like the CPA does not matter much.


Sorry, left out the most important part. 680 GMAT with a 3.1 GPA.
