Judging by this site and beat the gmat, it looks like Cornell is inviting international students first, which is coincidentally the opposite route Darden is going.

do you guys think I should contact the admissions office to check if any documents or anything is missing ? My application has been in Submitted status for almost a month. I submitted the application on 10/15/2012.

seems like Johnson is a "backup" school for the majority of the applicants here. Is there anyone here besides myself for whom it is the first choice?

Can anyone tell me how Johnson notifies us whether or not we receive an interview? E-mail, phone call, text message, snail mail, carrier pigeon, smoke signals, morse code, etc.? The wait is excruciating...

btw- I applied for the AMBA, too

Johnson is a great school. I wouldnt consider it my backup, if I got into the 3 schools left (MIT, Cornell, Yale), it would be a very difficult decision based on fit. I like Johnson because it seems like a very collaborative environment and the students I met while visiting were great. Just down to Earth people that would be good to go to school with.

Some people might call it a backup, but I think its a great school that is just as good as anywhere else. The only place they have a bit of a tougher time is recruiting, otherwise they are cool.

I find most people over estimate the strength of their candidacy, 720+ gmat + consultant/investment bankers are constantly being rejected by H/S/W - and these people end up clueless as to way.

Unless someone has a truely distintive story to contribute to his/her classmates and manages to present themselves as a great fit to a program then any program with an acceptance rate under 25-30% shouldnt be considered a safety choice in honest, realistic opinion - specially if its an Ivy and has such strong reputation as Cornell.

Cornell is a world renowned brand name, very competitive to get into and has a very distintive program so if someone just applied there because it has a higher acceptance rate chances are they didnt make a wise decision while choosing a safety school.

This is one of the select few schools that if they extend an offer it would be extremely difficult to just turn it down, most definitely not a safety.

Agree 100%. Although cornell may not be my first choice, in no way do I consider it a safety school. An Ivy league, and top 15 program a safety school?? ha.

If a penguin shows up at my door to invite me to an interview, then my decision of which school to attend just got a whole lot easier. Well played Cornell, well played/

by no means was I saying that it's a safety. I said it appeared to be a backup with most people applying to much higher ranked schools as well. So that if they get into the higher ranked schools they probably woudlnt go to Johnson. anyways like I said for me it's my top choice and would be thrilled to receive an interview.
