Hey guys, no change in decision letter and to-do list in OPUS... what happened? If I didn't get admitted, shall I get a ding instead? What the hell is current status?

Sorry to hear about the ding. I do want to address your post because I don't think it's entirely accurate. I have not seen a jobs report lately, but I know the class of '12 had some great placement regarding consulting.

I actually talked to the "Consulting guy" in the Career Management Center as part of the application process (apparently the Adcom had a "career-related concern about my application"). The numbers aren't amazing. This is from memory, so take it with a grain of salt. He said they don't have as much trouble with career placement as they do internship placement. They place about 33% of the people who want it in consulting internships. A lot end up taking general management, marketing, or whatever internships. Not a lot to the big 3 for internships. I believe he said they had 2 go big 3 last year, one at Bain, one at McKinsey, and 1 go to BCG this year. Big employers for Goizueta are Deloitte, KSA, IBM, and some others (again this is from memory). Most firms recruit on campus, the only firm missing was Booz.


John (our consulting guy) is an overall great guy. I'm not a consulting person, the travel isn't for me, but he's a real good guy to talk to about any career issues. The big 3 comment is correct. We have 2 people from '12 going to McKinsey full time. I don't think we have any going to BCG although 8 had 1st round interviews there and at least 2 got a final round there. I know we have 1 going to Bain full time.

Deloitte, Accenture, IBM, KSA, Capgemeni, PWC, E&Y, McKesson do recruit and hire many people each year from Goizueta. They're great employers and my classmates were all happy to be working for their respective companies.

The 33% numbers seems very low to me. I think you misinterpreted that (although I could be wrong). I believe roughly 1/3 of the class will be taking consulting jobs, as opposed to the way I'm reading it here.

I wasn't crazy excited about the internship prospects. He rated them (with respect to consulting placement) as similar to South Carolina or some other Southern schools. He said Duke sent more, but there "you had more competition." The numbers were better when it came to career placement, but I don't remember anything specific.


The Duke line is one we hear a lot. Emory respects Duke a lot and being that they're both in the south, we do have a lot of overlap in the applicant pool. I think the career center likes to position us against Duke because of that. I can't address competition at Duke - I don't know how their process works first hand. I can say that if you're at Emory and a consulting company is coming on campus and you have the GMAT score for it (consulting companies want high GMATs), you have to really screw something up to not get a 1st round with that firm. We have a great alumni base at each of these firms and they work hard to get our current students offers. I've never seen anywhere where the alumni give back so much career-wise. It truly is remarkable.

Just to clarify, I completely agree, in case this came across the wrong way. I really enjoyed talking to him. He was very knowledgeable and good to talk to. I saw him interact with 2 students why I was there. He seemed very helpful and the students really seemed to value his opinion. I saw no evidence in him of the kind of flawed judgement expressed by the admissions committee (jk).

Hey! Emory made great progress in the US News rankings! - bit.ly/z7xXv0


It is definitely a great school and it is on the rise...In the south, the reputation of Emory is unmatched..It gets you access to some wonderful job opportunities and its location is a big asset..Great to see the school climbing up the ladder... Emory still has some work to do before it catches up as a "national" brand name...but its taking all the right steps IMO...Congrats to everyone who made it in and good luck to those who are waiting...


Emory is a top 20 national university with top 25 MBA, Law and Medicine. It is a small school with no athletics to attract attention, but has one of the largest endowments worldwide. To say it's not a "national brand name" is a slight to the quality of the university. You are correct in that the layperson doesn't instantly identify the Emory brand, but the people who matter, i.e. recruiters, are fully aware of its prestige.

I actually talked to the "Consulting guy" in the Career Management Center as part of the application process (apparently the Adcom had a "career-related concern about my application"). The numbers aren't amazing. This is from memory, so take it with a grain of salt. He said they don't have as much trouble with career placement as they do internship placement.

He said Duke sent more, but there "you had more competition." The numbers were better when it came to career placement, but I don't remember anything specific.

If there are some current students around, feel free to correct me. Like I said, this was from memory, and as this meeting was requested by admissions, I was kinda nervous, so I may have some of the details wrong.

By the way, good luck to any other R4 applicants. Should know something soon!


I know you said this is for memory, but this is a bit of a misrepresentation. Since many prospective students may read this and become concerned, I will address the more errant parts of it. Emory certainly isn't a H/S/W in terms of job placement, but no one is, that's why even if you don't like the H/S/W culture, if you are accepted, you go. Emory is #8 for job placement according to BW, with an avg starting salary >$100K and 95% of student accepting offers 3mths out. 100% of students have landed internships 8/9 years. Overall, a very strong career placement record.

In regards to consulting alone, Emory is a very strong program. Over 20 consulting firms recruit at Emory and fully 1/3 of the class landed consulting jobs for a median salary of $120K. Accenture and Deloitte hire heavily at Emory, but the MBB jobs are not impossible. Emory will get you in the door for MBB so if you fail to make it past the first cut, that's more a reflection of the individual than the institution. They are no more likely to hire a poor student from H/S/W than Emory, so getting the interview is all the university can do. The statement that many students begrudgingly end up in general management, false. General management constitutes roughly 5% of the Emory class. Emory is a big marketing program (Coke, Delta, HD), so if you failed to land a dream consulting internship, you're not exactly roughing it in the marketing or management division of these corporations.

As for the comparison to the unranked South Carolina... utterly asinine. If a career management center representative made this comment, it is extremely disappointing. This isn't to belittle USC, but rather to inject some reality into this situation. Only 6% of USC's class goes into consulting and none of the top hiring companies are consulting firms. Furthermore, the avg starting salary is $30K less than Emory.

Can't help you with that. What is Ross' modus operandi? Perhaps it is similar.

Ross has a waitlist Google group in which people update their status. It becomes a lot easier that way.
