Haha. Thanks!
Any specifics on how not to do that? :)
Jokes apart, what is the general theme of the interview, what kinds of questions shall I expect apart from Career goals, why MBA and why from Johnson?

Thanks again.

Does anybody have any ideas on Cornell's ration for "Admission/Interview"...?

Cross fingers for the upcoming interview in mid-Nov...


I imagine this changes quite a bit so take it with a huge grain of salt, but Christine Sneva stated in an interview on Poets & Quants that in the class entering 2012 they had 2200 applicants and interviewed "about 700 to 800" (around 35%). Their final admission rate, from the same interview, was 27%, so 27% of 2200 = 594. Thus somewhere around 590 of around 800 interviewees were admitted. The ratio was pretty good that year :)

Here's the interview:

Hang in there folks...

Just got an invite, been under review for almost a month (10/11 until now). Was starting to lose hope, but it isn't over until the fat lady sings!

Just got the interview invite. I am very excited. I will be conducting a Skype interview at a date/time to be determined.

Any suggestions/tips for a Skype interview?

Have a question on the same topic. I scheduled my Skype interview for November 21st and got an email with the interview tips.

One of the tip says: Use notes! Have notes of all the skills/experiences you'd like to highlight or something like that.

How recommended is it to use notes while interviewing via Skype? Won't it look odd if I look down to check my notes during the interview? that too on Skype?

Have any of you tried referring to notes? Any insights on this would be greatly appreciated!

Current student here

guys, if you plan to visit the campus (which I highly advise), DO NOT use your cellphones during class. It is an easy way to blow yourself out!
I mean, not that the admissions will know about it, but this is a really small community and everybody knows each other. They even ask our opinion about prospective students.
Keep this in mind ;)
It is just 75 minutes without your cellphone... it doesn't hurt

I don't know how many Indian invites have been sent. Does anybody have any idea about when Indian invites are sent generally?
I believe they conduct Alumni interviews in India. Any idea?
