Top stories we saw in the past week: How various employers define “diversity”; tips for surviving in a top-tier MBA program; common mistakes by career-switchers; how millennials will change management; Maya Angelou’s birthplace.

Anyone think it's weird that we haven't heard from Cornell at all yet?

FROM The Consortium Admissions Blog: Logo and location: 2 Orientation Program updates
Did you know it takes 1,071 days to plan The Consortium’s annual Orientation Program & Career Forum? That means while we’re working on one OP, we’re already well into planning the next one. Why do we mention it? Keep reading.

Our 2016 OP is, of course, a big one: It’s our 50th, and we’re working on big plans to commemorate the Golden Anniversary of our organization.

Today, we’re debuting our logo for the 50th OP (see above), featuring our theme for the conference, “Building on the Best.” The theme speaks to our drive to help our top-notch students create their own opportunities at our top-tier member schools, alongside our corporate partners.

It also speaks to our ambition as an organization to continuously improve. We hoped to capture some of that, along with our excitement at this milestone, with the 50th anniversary logo.

Now, remember when we were talking about that 1,071-day planning cycle? We also thought you might like to know this: We’ve nailed down the site for the 2017 Orientation Program, too: Drumroll, please: It’s Atlanta, where we’ll gather at the Westin Peachtree Plaza!

Here’s a promotional video from the Atlanta Convention and Visitors Bureau to give you a glimpse at where we’re headed.

Congrats!

I didn't apply to Haas, but for future Consortium applicants it might be helpful to post when you submitted, when the school notified you, and when you were invited so people have an understanding of what to expect.

I recently spoke to someone working in admissions at one of these schools that mentioned they feel the Consortium timeline slows them down. I wonder if there will be any changes in the future.

FYI for those interested in Cornell: I have found out that your application will be considered as part of their R1 process, you will received an interview, waitlist, or deny by 12/15 and admissions are conducted on a rolling basis from then on.

Scott Lan: A sucker for pain and torture  [#permalink]

FROM The Consortium Admissions Blog: Scott Lan: A sucker for pain and torture
Since earning his MBA from the University of Southern California in 2014, Scott Lan has taken a beating.

And he keeps asking for it. Lan is in his second year as a resident business strategy director for Alliance College-Ready Public Schools. But when he’s not at his day job, Lan has participated in two world-class obstacle course races in October and he’s gearing up for a third in December.

The BattleFrog Championship is an obstacle course series operated by former U.S. Navy SEALs and the competition is set for Dec. 12.

“I’m a sucker for pain and torture. I love to test and push my body beyond its limits, both physically and mentally,” Lan said in an email. “It gives me a goal to accomplish—always trying to get faster, stronger—and is a great way to get out of the office and get back to what humans were meant to do: move, explore, and be one with nature and the elements.”

His older sister introduced him to obstacle course races in 2011. Since then, he’s competed in more than 25 such races. The last, in October, was the Spartan Race World Championships (with a time of 5:57:36) and the OCR World Championships.

When he’s not pushing his body through physical obstacles, he’s working on theoretical obstacles in other areas of his life. He’s a Broad resident, a leadership program that places business professionals “into high-level managerial positions in school districts, charter management organizations and federal/state departments of education.”

As a Broad resident, he works with Alliance College-Ready Public Schools leading a large-scale operational change initiative that will affect all 27 schools and 11,000 middle and high school students that are part of Alliance, a nonprofit charter school organization in Los Angeles.

He’s founded the Los Angeles chapter of Young Education Professionals, which is planning its launch event for January 2016. He was appointed board co-chair of the Teach For America LA Collective (TFA’s alumni of color network); and beginning April 2016, he will serve on the Teach For America Collective National Advisory Board.

Pictured above: Scott Lan “getting pummeled at the finish line at a Spartan Race,” as he describes it. “It’s just one of the obstacles to get through. They hit you with pugil sticks (like American Gladiator).”

I was recently looking on the Consortium website and saw that there were a number of non minorities receiving the fellowships. At the end of the day, I thought the purpose of the fellowship was to increase actual minorities in the business school ranks. I understand that there may be non minorities working towards that goal but the fellowship should be just for minorities. As a black women it does seem like a slap in the face that non minorities are taking fellowships away from actual minorities.
