Thx! No info yet. I applied through the Consortium, and I gathered from my discussion with the adcom that they'll be wrapping up their process around end of next week.

Do you think that the school can allow to pursue a policy in which it will ding all extra strong applicants based on the assumption that they are backing up their chances by applying to Emory?

This closing sentence is particularly striking: "If in the next year you have additional information which you feel would strengthen your application, we welcome you to re-apply to Goizueta."

The decision emails they send out are generic. They send the same thing to everybody. Schools are always trying to reduce their acceptance rates by accepting people who will choose to attend. BTW, how were your extracurriculars? Did you have leadership experience outside of work or while you were in school? That may be the only thing that may have hurt you.

This closing sentence is particularly striking: "If in the next year you have additional information which you feel would strengthen your application, we welcome you to re-apply to Goizueta."

This is commonly referred to as the "Tufts Effect". The theory is that a lower-ranked school can increase its yield by denying admission to overqualified applicants that will likely matriculate to a higher-ranked school.

Yield is a big deal to a school like HBS. 85% of students admitted to HBS eventually matriculate. That's pretty impressive, especially if you consider that a lot of those kids got into Wharton, Stanford, etc. They had their pick of top schools, and 85% of them chose HBS.

Among Goizueta's peer schools, yield is not a very important metric. So, I would be surprised if they systematically denied admission to overqualified applicants in an effort to increase their yield.

congrats...any info on $? I got an email from the Adcomm informing me of a$15k/semester scholarship.

Not sure if that scholarship offer can be matched even if I get admitted by the other programs that I applied to...I sense a potential dilemma! A happy one tho!

Amazing, what could have been wrong with my profile?

If it's of any comfort to you, I got a ding too. I don't have a profile as awesome as yours, but I am equally confident that I will do better in a school that appreciates me for who I am.

Congrats to all admitted applicants ! Enjoy Atlanta

I'm in too. I was waitlisted in R1 and got a confirmed admit on the 7th of March via email, and a followup email a half hour later informing me that I was awarded a scholarship. The next morning, Amy Stalzer (Director of MBA Operations) - the person who interviewed me many months ago - called and gave me $details about the scholarship. Very excited!

Do you have any advice for me? I got wait listed in Round 3. Did you send them any additional information. Did you keep in constant contact? Any advice or tips would be very much appreciated. Thanks! Also did they mention how many people they have wait listed?

Also did they mention how many people they have wait listed? Thanks! Yes, I did send them additional info. I enrolled in a couple of online courses. I spoke to a few current students and alumni (some of my friends). I was in constant touch with them (make sure it doesn't get annoyingly frequent though). I guess these things helped.

Also was this something they told you specifically to do, or did you do this on your own. Last question... I promise! Did you get a call that you were put on the waiting list or did you just get a letter. Thank you for your feedback!

But I am an Indian guy working in Shanghai for the past two years --close enough

Guys- Any idea if there is any presence of Emory in this region? I mean in Singapore, HK etc.
I would ideally like to settle in Asia but I am open to working in the US for a few years immediately after my MBA.

Also, with this American economy--what are the chances of getting an H1b through an I-bank post an Emory MBA? I heard the banks just don't want to hire the international stufents post MBA because of the extensive paper work involved.
