So... I guess all the 1-year MBA students are either admitted or dinged. Anyone still in the 1-year admission process?

Hi, there are a few candidates still in the wait-list. The chances of being admitted depends on whether someone who is admitted quits his place (think, that is rare so late in the game esp for the one-year MBA)

Congratulations - are you invited for an interview? I found this forum to be quite a useful resource when preparing for my own interview. There are many youtube videos for "mba admissions interview", but looking at those videos only prepared me so much. Johnson interviews are quite different from those from other top business schools in that they are more conversational. For what it is worth, here's how my own interview was:

I had my interview at 3.15 PM, but had registered for class visits and student information sessions for the morning and the afternoon. So, I had already been hanging around campus for several hours before my interview. Before the interview, several interviewees and members of the admissions committee met for coffee at 3 PM. This acted as an ice-breaker for me, because I was able to introduce myself to my interviewer before the actual interview.
Once the interview started, the first question that was asked of me was to explain how the level of responsibility that I have been entrusted with has increased over the years. I tackled this question by stating that I started off as an individual contributor, but have progressed to lead small ad hoc teams on projects. The next follow up question asked for anything that went wrong while I was leading teams. This gave me an opportunity to tell about my failures and what I learned from those. I believe that Cornell puts special emphasis on these questions, and looks for clues to one's collaborative nature.

Eventually the discussion turned to Why MBA, Why now, Why Cornell! These answers should really be very personal, because everyone has their own reasons for pursuing an MBA.
But the main question that I was able to drive myself was how I can contribute to Cornell. In other words, I proactively addressed my unique selling points - my trilingual upbringing, my technical experience etc.

I also mentioned names of at least 7 Cornell people who I had met with prior to the interview. These ranged from current students to admissions committee members to alumni working in my ideal post-MBA position. I think Johnson values people who take a proactive role and reach out to the community.

Finally, I was asked about how I see my year shaping out - what clubs/activities/courses I plan to take. This was pretty straightforward.

I hope my experience helps you in reaching out to alumni/adcom members and informing that you are serious about getting into the school.

Turning down my offer (2 year program) at Johnson. Met some friendly people at DJ and hoping the best for all of you.

Especially hoping this frees up some space for a worthy WL'er and some funds (1/4 tuition) for a deserving applicant.

Best of luck in Ithaca!

I have a friend who applied on April 18th, interviewed on April 25th, and got in last Friday (May 2). Seems like they stick with their 2 week time frame between applying and decision day.
