Week of May 6
Accelerated MBA Program Begins
We advise that you arrive in Ithaca early to get settled. Once classes begin you won't have time to get your phone turned on, etc. Your program starts the week of May 6, 2013, so we encourage you to look for a lease start date that will allow you to move in before the week of May 6.

Wow, app due date of 4/1 and program start 5/6? That leaves almost no time to: interview, wait for decision, give your employer a notice and move to Ithaca.

I agree. It's funny because on Cornell's website the decision date says 3/27. I doubt Christine will make such a mistake.

But, if you apply in April, you will probably get an answer in 2-3 weeks.

True - but if someone were serious about the AMBA knowing it began in May he or she would have applied in one of the first 3 rounds. I read the blog post as a way to drum up some Round 4 applicants for AMBA...with ~60 in a given AMBA class, I wonder how many applications they receive.

The new blog post from Christine is interesting. Seems like Cornell had fewer apps this year for the AMBA program. Will be interesting to see if they offers admits to WL applicants for the 1 year program.

If that's the case, it'd be limited only to WL candidates with an advanced degree, CFA, or CPA.

Seems like it would be tight with the start dates. I was always under the impression the AMBA was for advanced degrees in business (like MS Econ, or M Acc) until I saw people with MS engineering degrees get accepted.

Dont know much about AMBA, but what are the downsides to it (aside from it being a little more rigorous due to compressed schedule)? Seems like you'd save decent change(~50k) and hit the work force a year sooner.

That said, I think I'd buy into it if they gave me an offer (interviewed for 2 year program, but I have an advanced degree)

Wow a whole week early, congrats! Wonder if domestic applicants will get notices.

Wait, are you 2 year or AMBA?

I think the downside is not having a summer internship, which is important, if you are a career changer. In terms of costs, AMBAs take full load in summer, and the tution for that is $33k, so you only save 20k. But yeah, going back into workforce 9 months early is attractive.

Ah, didn't catch that. But you save a little on housing too, so total savings is probably 30-35k. Nothing to sneeze at.

International student from R3 just received my interview invite, what do I make of this? So late in the game? Are they looking for potential waitlists or am I being cynical?

If they invite you, you have a fair chance. Prepare for the interview in the best way you can and don't waste time with noise.
Good luck buddy!!
