Did anyone ever here from Georgetown? I know their decisions are supposed to be released on the 20th, but I thought that they would have called Consortium people before then. Anyone have any updates?

I haven't. But I have the same question for McCombs- Deadline is 3/29 but assumed Consortium would hear earlier. Maybe not?

Honestly, you'd be crazy not to go to Booth. You'll make the $120k back in no time. It really is a different league from Darden. Also, you haven't said what your post_MBA plans are. If its something like non-profit or entrepreneurship, then take the money.

Hard to give advice without context. Booth is certainly the best school of those three. What are you looking to do? Did you receive scholarships? Where do you want to end up geographically?

Yup. Funny enough I technically haven't heard back from UCLA yet though (I thought they were going to hold off telling people until all schools notified us of their decisions).

I haven't (and still haven't heard from all schools).
I did, however, receive a phone call from USC telling me that I was accepted as a member of consortium. No fellowship info though.

Maybe they sent as I heard from NYU that I was awarded the fellowship, below is the email I got:

The Consortium has posted a decision regarding your Consortium membership status online. You may log into your application to retrieve this information. For your convenience, we are providing you with the login information from your application so that you may review your decision status.

Log into the application here.
Login: jbmonu

If you forgot your Password, click the "Forgot Your User Name or Password" link in the application to reset your password.

Thank you again for applying to business school through The Consortium.

Then when I logged in I could click on a letter stating:

Congratulations! The Consortium for Graduate Study in Management and the NYU Stern School of Business are pleased to inform you that you have received membership to The Consortium and are the recipient of a Consortium Fellowship to attend NYU Stern for the 2016-2017 academic year.

The fellowship provides tuition and mandatory fees for the Full-Time MBA program at NYU Stern for one academic year beginning fall 2016. If you successfully complete your first year of graduate business study with a grade point average of 3.0 or above, the fellowship will be renewed for a second year to be applied to your NYU Stern tuition and fees only. The fellowship will not exceed four consecutive semesters of full-time study.

Please review and complete The Consortium’s enrollment form by Monday, April 18, 2016. To confirm your place in NYU Stern’s entering class, please follow the instructions in the admission package from NYU Stern. If you have further questions about this process, please contact Liz Chilla in the NYU Stern MBA Admissions Office at echilla@stern.nyu.edu.

NYU Stern recognizes your outstanding accomplishments and is delighted to offer you this competitive fellowship. I join them in welcoming you to the MBA Class of 2018.

I got admitted to the Consortium today as well, but I haven't officially been admitted at any schools I applied to. I was rejected from Haas and haven't heard from Georgetown or UCLA yet. I guess I got into one of those two!

No fellowship though. I am planning on doing a joint degree and was admitted to a lot of top policy schools this cycle, so I will probably accept one of those and reapply to their business school next year in hopes of getting more funding.

I am still waiting to hear from Darden for admissions, although since I got my consortium membership offer today I do know they didn't offer me a fellowship.
