My application was under review by Friday, October 21st, but I did not get the interview invite until Tuesday, November 1st. It took them seven business days to send me the invite. It has only been eight business days since your application went under review. If I were you, I wouldn't throw in the towel yet.

Does anyone know how the interview invitation process works at Cornell? If we don't receive an invite within 10 days after the application went under review (seems to be the case for everyone who received an invite so far), does that mean that it is not looking good? Is there any current student on this forum who can answer this?

Also, are there multiple reviewers looking at the application similar to how it is for most other top schools? If that is the case, I am just thinking even if the first reviewer doesn't send out an invite, the second reviewer might??

Thanks in advance for answering the questions.

I went under review on 10/20 and still haven't heard anything. Do you really think they finish the application reviews that quickly? I assumed with the level of scrutiny of such a highly ranked school, it would take them awhile to get back to most applicants.

My take on the process is that your essays need to go through two or three readers before the final decision is made. Once the essays are read by the first reader, they have the option to send out an invitation to interview if they feel that your essays are strong enough. If they are unsure of your whole story, they pass your essays on to the second reader for further evaluation. The second reader then reads your essays and decides if you are worthy of an interview invite. If the reviews are mixed, they pass your essays to a third reader to "break the tie." The way I see it, there are four scenarios.

Case 1
- Reader 1 likes your essays and decides to invite you.
- Reader 2 likes your essays and approves of your essays.
- You are accepted/waitlisted depending on the strength of the other aspects of your profile.

Case 2
- Reader 1 likes your essays and decides to invite you.
- Reader 2 does not feel that you are a strong candidate based on your essays.
- Reader 3 evaluates your essays and breaks the tie.
- You are accepted/waitlisted if Reader 3 likes your essays. You are rejected if Reader 3 agrees with Reader 2.

Case 3
- Reader 1 does not feel that you are a strong candidate based on your essays.
- Reader 2 likes your essays and decides to invite you.
- Reader 3 evaluates your essays and breaks the tie.
- You are accepted/waitlisted if Reader 3 likes your essays. You are rejected if Reader 3 agrees with Reader 1.

Case 4
- Reader 1 does not feel that you are a strong candidate based on your essays.
- Reader 2 does not feel that you are a strong candidate based on your essays.
- You are rejected.

Therefore, I think that those who were invited within a week of their applications going under review are the ones whose essays compelled their respective Reader 1's to invite them. Those who are still waiting are the ones who fall under Case 3/4.

I am a current student at Johnson. Don't worry if you have not yet received an invite to interview. Johnson sends invites out days before admissions decisions are announced, so don't throw in the towel until the decision date.

as a current Johnson student (sitting in the library now) who has interaction with many administrators here, I can tell you that they are incredibly busy reviewing everyone's applicantions. I think they rarely come out of their offices unless they're traveling around. I feel everyone's pain as a year ago I was right here on this forum asking the same questions! Like a previous classmate said, Johnson will send out interview invites up until the day before the decision deadline. So at this point just TRY too forget that you've even applied and move on to other applications or rekindling relationships with your friends! I know it's tough to forget that you've applied, but it's the only thing that you can do to protect your sanity.

I will say though that if you get a promotion or just finished some class you were taking (and got an A) or did something amazing in life, let the admissions committee know.

Best of luck! If you have any questions please feel free to PM me!

+1 dude (or lady) for digging that up.

I don't think I could come up with 22 different variables to look for in my essays, and I was the one who wrote them.

Are all of you guys aware of Johnson's policy of "Declaration of Finances Form"? I have heard that the policy is quite tough as it requires to show the finances upto 100 K $ without taking into account the Johnson's loan amount. International applicants, find this limitation quite tough.

Any thoughts????

Thanks ddx2003...my application went under review on October 21. I have another friend who's application went under review on Oct 21 and she received her invite on the 11th. Think they've just started sending out the invites for internationals and the coming week will see a major push in that direction. Good luck to you!

Thanks Shivam. I haven't yet received my interview date. I received the email on the 10th but couldn't reply as I was traveling without access to email. The initial invite asked for my preference of mode for the interview - skype, phone, alum, or on campus. I replied on the 12th, but still haven't received a response. I guess the weekend came up and probably will see an email tomorrow with the interview date.


Congrats Sidhant!!! Any particular reason you opted for a phone interview. Just wondering if Cornell perfers one over the others.
