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.

what is your profile like? Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?



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.


I'm in the same boat as you are. Deloitte in SF. CPA. And dings from HBS, Tuck, Yale, and Kellogg. What day are you interviewing? I'll be in Ithaca on Monday the 25th.

Ha, I've wondered. I know some CPAs who have been accepted, but it doesn't carry near as much weight, if any, as I thought it would. Oh well, we do what we can with it.

How does kroll verify? Do they call reference providers and company HR? I have not told my manager about it and don't want him to find out now, as I am planning on telling him in mid-april as my AMBA programs starts on 5/6

Johnson uses Re Vera not kroll. They will not do anything until after they reach-out to you for payment for the process (i think $75), and you pay. Once that happens I think it takes a few weeks for them to check everything.

Got an interview invite yesterday as well! Scheduled a Skype interview for next week because of the short time frame and I'm in nowhere close to Cornell... Hope that doesn't hurt my chances

Do you guys think that Cornell will be sending out more R3 invites next week? I am kind of giving up hope already.

As a mac user, let me say, I am sad to be gearing up for the transition to PC. Yale includes a new laptop as part of tuition, and I would be surprised if they were alone in that. Cornell may or may not have policies about specs for integration with their network, so make sure to read up on the tech requirements. I was actually about to buy a new macbook, so finding out I'm getting a new computer in August nixed those plans.

Cornell does not give you laptop. You have to buy it for yourself.

Check it out http://www.johnson.cornell.edu/New-Students/Computer-Requirements.aspx

I plan on fighting the power with a Mac and ordering Parallels for those pesky Windows only applications.

Question for R1 and R2 admits. It seems Cornell may accomodate interviewing after the R3 decision date. By doing so, they would give a decision on a rolling basis.

This makes the process rolling and hence I think the sooner one interviews, the better.

Did the R1 and R2 admits face a similar rolling process and did it help to interview earlier?

Thanks.

hmm haven't you already applied for the visa? I think they teach most of the core courses during summer, so you will probably miss a lot. I would check with school first, if they can let you start late.
