Best of luck to the round 2 candidates.. The best advice I have from round 1 is continue to be patient because Cornell seems to operate a little differently then other school. It is almost like rolling admissions because they deal with each individual at their own time it seems. When i interviewed, I think there was only one other applicant there that day. Opposed to Yale, MIT, where I met like 15-20 people who also were interviewing on the same day (which was intimidating)

I visited the campus last month and agree that the admissions process seems to be more personalized at Cornell. When I was there only four people were there to interview and I was the only person visiting the campus. On the other hand, the smaller overall class size at Cornell would lead to the smaller interview pool on any given day.

I would definitely recommend patience during the admissions process. Although Christine Sneva notes that the round three invitations will start going out by today she also notes that they will be focusing on Consortium and Round 2 applicants through February 25th. While some interview invites may go out over the next week or so I would guess the majority of Round 3 invites will not be sent out until the end of the month to the beginning of March.

R2 int candidate. 2,5 months passed from R2 deadline - no notifications, calls, e-mails..... Profile on the website did not change. Passed interviews in ALL other schools (TOP 10 + rest).
Johnson is really strange school.

I think Johnson's Skype option thins the on-campus interviewing herd. For instance, Darden has a similar class size to Johnson, but requires all US applicants to interview on Grounds, which is why there was a ton of people there when I interviewed. Also, Darden seems to be more liberal in who they invite as it tends to be about 50% of the applicant pool. My gut feeling is that Johnson interviews less because they waitlilst applicants without an interview, whereas Darden interviews everyone before deciding to put them on the waitlist (no interview = ding).

Different adcoms look for different things. We need to get away from the mentality that getting into a highly ranked school means you should get into all schools that are ranked lower (this is also assuming the same level of effort was put into ALL applications, which is rarely the case). Each admissions decision is an independant event.

No, it is ok. I understand, different schools - different adcoms and goals. I am talking about communication. Normal time frame for decision notification: interview/ding = max 6 or 8 weeks (at most). In this case almost 11 weeks passed. They can "ding" me - it is thier right, no prob, but they should notify me.

I am struggling to schedule interview. I sent an email to the admission officer three days ago but havent heard back. I called the adcom member and left a voice message but haven't heard back.

Is there any other way to schedule interview than sending email to the admission member mentioned in the invite email?

Call again. Sorry there isn't a better solution, but that's what I did. I left a voicemail. Didn't hear back for 3 hours and I called again - she picked up, and I scheduled the interview. Would be so much easier if they had an online scheduling system.

Thanks for keeping the forum alive and giving great inputs CobraKai, vatsas, alexpiers, Seen, Dbalks.

I'm a R3 candidate. Haven't received any email notification and status on application hasn't changed. Agree with Seen about the communication getting delayed and am keeping my fingers crossed.

Good luck to all applicants!

Cheers,
Pra

Agreed, the scheduling process is a bit archaic, but once you get an adcom member on the phone, they are extremely helpful. Good luck!

I opt to disagree. In my case i guess. Each application was not and is not an independent event, because i turned in the same file to all the schools. IF you had said 'each adcom' is an independent event, and therefore if invited to one school, one shouldn't expect to be invited elsewhere, i would agree with you.

But surely, if you get an invite from Johnson, then logically, you should get an invite at some 3-tier school.

What do you mean you sent the same file to each school?

Sure, your GMAT + GPA + Work experience will be the same for all schools... but there are so many other variables... How do you fit at that school? How well did you sell your vision? How driven did you come off? How well did you communicate all of these things in your interviews? What other applicants has that school received similar to you?
Sure, if you have the stats to make it into HBS, you have the pure stats to get into any school, but business school admissions isn't a pure numbers game. This isn't law school.

1) Read the quote again: I said each admissions decision is an independent event, not the application. Which is what you seem to agree with.
2) Not all essay questions are the same, so your applications were bound to vary a bit.
3) Just like it's your opinion to disagree, each admissions committee is going to react in a different subjective manner to an application, even though you turned in the same thing.
