    The questions are divided into three parts:

    Part I: Career Choice Essay (300 word maximum)
    How would you characterize your career since college?
    This is not your job description or complete history of your work since graduating (we already ask for that in the online portion and can see this on your resume). You need to choose the most important elements that show your initiative, contribution, leadership and results achieved.

    Part II: Career Goal Essay (400 word maximum)
    Tell us about your short and long term career goals.
    Please show you have a clear direction for your goal post-MBA. Good essays will emphasize what an applicant wants to do while at Johnson and how you will use this experience to accomplish your goal.

    Part III: Character Essay (400 word maximum for chosen question), please choose one of the following to write about:
    a. You are the author for the book of Your Life Story. Please write the table of contents for the book. Note: Approach this essay with your unique style. We value creativity and authenticity.

    b. Describe a situation taken from your personal or professional life where you failed and tell us what you learned.

    c. What does diversity mean to you and how will you contribute to the diversity of our community at Johnson?

...I'm in.

Finally, in. :-D

A huge weight off the shoulders. Super thrilled at the prospect of being a member of the Johnson community this fall.
I can't really describe how I'm feeling right now other than... just feeling super, super positive. I think the news will sink in later.

Congratulations to all fellow R2 admits and best of luck to those who are still waiting!!

Attended the information session a couple of hours back. Here are the answers to the questions a few people asked:

1.) Applications are segregated geographically. These are given to separate app readers (going forward these readers will specialize in a particular region). Also, the selection (for an interview) of a candidate may happen as soon as the reader reads the application or after all the apps have been read. So, you may expect not a lot of difference (in days) between invites for candidates from the same country.
2.) R1=R2>R3>R4 in terms of both scholarships and acceptance ease (still not sure about acceptance rates - she did not have the numbers)
3.) You may be waitlisted without an interview. You are then compared with the subsequent pool.
4.) The adcom have just begun or will be beginning to read applications. So, in all probability the invites have not gone out yet.

There were only 20 of us. So it was a nice little session with a lot of interaction.
We discussed almost everything under the roof. So if you have any specific questions shoot out, and I may be able to answer those.

Best of luck to the folks who are waiting.

Cheers!

Cornell Johnson just moved to #7 from #13 in the bi-annual BusinessWeek rankings. We're pretty excited around here and good things keep happening for good reasons. Good luck, prospectives. I hope to see all of you in the fall!

How's that for my 200th GMATClub post? And 1st since b-school started...

Hi All! Glad to see that you're applying to Johnson. I'm a 2nd year student at Johnson and just want to let you know that, yes many people left for the holidays yesterday. There were still people in the office today and yesterday. Also, everything can be done remotely re: applications, so one doesn't need to be at his/her desk to proceed.

With that being said, it's safe to say that Thursday -> Sunday are days when you can relax.

I remember being in this forum 2 years ago! There's nothing that I can say to remind you guys to try to stay calm, so I won't even try haha. Just hang in there! Best of luck! Also, if you want to know anything about Johnson feel free to post it here or ping me. If I don't know the answer, I'll try to connect you with either one of my 2nd year classmates or a 1st year classmate!

Visited Ithaca this week for an on-campus visit & R2 interview. Definitely the friendliest interviewer of the 4 interviews I've conducted, and dare I say, a bit fun.

It is also apparent that it is not uncommon for Johnson to send in 2 interviewers to interview you - an admissions committee specialist + a 2nd year student. Usually one of the two takes the lead whereas the other is shadowing/learning (student) or monitoring/supervising (adcom). It was actually a very cool setup and I personally liked it a lot; especially made things easier when it came time for me to ask questions as I've found it more natural to direct questions to current MBA students about their ongoing experiences.

Ithaca was a lot more hilly and remote than I had anticipated. I'm really curious what it's like outside of the snowy/colder days as I did hear a lot about how gorgeous the area was. Unfortunately, the weather and the large campus sort of gave me an impression that the campus/town was kinda ... not that alive. But inside Sage Hall was an entirely different story.

Also, our tour guides and the subsequent information session were probably the most insightful resources of any of the other sessions/tour guides I've had. Just very honest answers, no sugarcoating, and extremely open to all questions and providing very comprehensive stories & experiences, whether diving into the recruiting process or offering their honest take of the culture.

3 more weeks and then I'll know whether I can formally take off my crown as the Waitlist Guru. The dream... is still alive. Good luck to all my fellow R2 applicants ~

Congrats to everyone who's received an interview! I'm currently on campus for Johnson Women in Business and it has been a great day so far. It might be too late for people who are applying this fall, but for anyone thinking about applying in fall 2013, you should definitely apply for this event - Johnson is making a concerted effort to attract women, you get your application fee waived, there is a travel reimbursement, and you meet some amazing people as part of the event. It is getting more selective - they said 90 women applied this year and 50 were accepted, as compared to the first year where they had 29 people apply and attend.

JWiB attendees also automatically are invited to interview while on campus, so I had an interview this morning with a second-year student. It was along the lines of what I was expecting - "why MBA, why Johnson, strengths/weaknesses, tell me about a time when...". My understanding is that Johnson is looking for good fit and strong interest in the school, so like people have said on other threads, make sure you know why you want to be there, what you would get out of the school, and what you will bring to the community. The questions available online are a good indicator of what they ask. The interview was about 45 minutes long, including some time for questions.

I met the person from admissions who handles North American applications as well, and she indicated that she had looked at my application this morning (apparently unrelated to the interview). There is now a note on my online file noting that an interview had been scheduled, but my status still reads 'submitted' and not 'under review' so I still am not sure what this designation means.

Hope that helps! Everyone on campus has been super, super nice and welcoming and it seems like such a great community.

I take three main points away from the p&q article:

1) Johnson has taken a different path to evaluating applicants and has put more emphasis on soft skills (interviews).

2) Apps were up last year, the trend continues this year in the EA round. I bet that now with the new ranking they will keep on increasing

3)They interviewed 700-800 applicants out of 2,100 (30-38%), and the admissions rate was 27%. So basically if you are invited to interview you had a 70-90% chance of being admitted.

There's a good chance they could figure out who the majority of us are...

I mean, especially for people like you and me... how many applicants have taken the gmat 3 times, with your exact breakdowns, and have gone through the CFA process...


How many people have my GPA, my gmat test history and live in MA? Secretly I'm hoping they figure out who I am, and let me in based on my puppy

Hi, can you elaborate what this means? I.e. going to company presentations, contacting Johnson alum @ McKinsey, etc, etc.


Certainly - no matter where you go to school, you'll quickly realize that "networking" will be a significant factor in terms of gaining traction with a lot of your target firms. This especially holds true in banking and consulting where you'll be expected to reach out to alumni and setup informational interviews, either by phone or even in-person.

Going to company briefings and office hours will generally be mandatory if you want any chance at securing an interview. The things that will set you apart from your classmates, as well as other candidates from other schools, will be the types of relationships you build with current associates and employees of the firms. Obviously, if the recruiters and hiring managers already know who you are, genuinely like you, and have taken an interest in you, then you're fairly likely to get an interview and possibly an offer.

So yea ultimately, you'll need to leverage your networks (undergrad, b-school, past co-workers, friends, family, etc.) and reach out to as many people as you can. Honestly, I think this is why reaching out to current students, professors, and alums is always viewed favorably by the adcom during the admissions process, since those are the types of things you're going to need to do during b-school to land solid internships and full-time jobs.

Thankfully the Johnson/Cornell alums are usually pretty friendly and helpful!
