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.


So did you make DivCo? I wonder if we met?

As a black women it does seem like a slap in the face that non minorities are taking fellowships away from actual minorities.


I heard that the fellowship used to be for minorities only, but due to a non-discrimination policy, the fellowship became open to all backgrounds proving that the person was committed to the mission

I know of non-minorities (black, hispanic) who have been awarded the fellowship based on their commitment to the mission of the Consortium. So in that sense, they could fall into the Consortium bucket.

I just read and responded to post on the Tuck board. One of the DivCo attendees felt that the current black students were "bougie." Did anyone else feel that way? I had a a great time so I didn't feel that way at all but maybe that's just my personality.

Finally got the application received notification from Stern. I honestly feel like applying via Consortium has made this process more painful.

Does anyone know whether your application complete/submitted date at a school being weeks behind the school's stated Consortium deadline will get your application pushed to Round 2 Consortium consideration?

As far as I've heard, if you submitted your application by the Consortium R1 deadline, all schools (except UCLA) will include you with the R1 pool, regardless of when the Consortium forwards your application. I think there can be delays if you were missing information, but for the most part, that's not the norm.

The Ross interview invite email listed Feb. 28, 2016 as the enrollment decision deadline for Round 1.

Did anybody else receive this email?

The regular application decision deadline is Dec. 18.

Thanks, Consortium alumni! You refer the most prospects to us  [#permalink]

FROM The Consortium Admissions Blog: Thanks, Consortium alumni! You refer the most prospects to us
An analysis of more than 3,000 Consortium applications spanning four application seasons offers both good news and some so-so news.

On the positive side, Consortium alumni funnel more prospects to us than any other category. More than 30 percent of prospects said they heard about The Consortium from an alumnus. That suggests our expanding membership community is proud, grateful and motivated to spread the word about their experience to the next generation.

In fact, The Consortium gets nearly two-thirds of its applications thanks to referrals from Consortium alumni and “friends and family”—the two largest categories among our referral sources.

This suggests to us that prospects are also hearing about The Consortium from friends who have become members or from family members helping to identify resources for a prospect’s MBA experience.

The data come from 3,070 applications in which applicants noted how they heard about us. It covers the application seasons 2012-13, 2013-14, 2014-15 and 2015-16 (through Nov. 1). We looked at only primary referral sources. That is, applicants could indicate multiple sources from which they heard about The Consortium; our chart indicates only the first source the applicant named.

Our review also shows other outreach methods aren’t generating the same level of response. For example, our 18 member schools are responsible for about 16 percent of the referrals we received over the same period.

Combined, five other sources of applicants totaled less than alumni alone. Those five sources accounted for about 24 percent of our prospects. They include Internet/websites; advertising; Consortium contacts; organizations or conferences; and school receptions.

Do you know someone who would make a great Consortium member? Does he or she show a demonstrated commitment to The Consortium’s mission? You can visit our referral page and submit information about that person so we can follow up.

Here are the raw numbers behind the chart, showing how often each source was named as a primary referral source between Aug. 15, 2012, and Nov. 1, 2015:

School Reception
15

Consortium Contact
108

Advertisement
114

Organization or conference
151

Internet/Website
348

Member School
491

Friend or Family
893

Alumni
950

Having had a ton of time to think things over, I'm starting to feel like the school that I ranked 3rd (and last) on my Consortium list should have been 2nd, and maybe even 1st.

In other news, is anyone else from Consortium R1 still waiting on Yale? Should I just assume a ding at this point?

Hang in there!... I think everyone has those thoughts, at the end we will never know which one was the best choice since we won't ever attend two business schools to compare. We have to feel comfortable knowing that all of these schools are good choices!.

Look back: Sterling Schoen’s obituary from 1999  [#permalink]

FROM The Consortium Admissions Blog: Look back: Sterling Schoen’s obituary from 1999
Image
Sterling Schoen’s obituary in the Washington University Record on Dec. 9, 1999.

Sterling Schoen died 16 years ago. This obituary originally ran in the Washington University Record on Dec. 9, 1999. It is reprinted here with permission.

Sterling H. Schoen, Ph.D., professor emeritus of management for the John M. Olin School of Business, died Saturday, Nov. 20, 1999, at Missouri Baptist Medical Center after suffering a heart attack. He was 81.

From 1950 until he retired in 1988, Schoen was a professor of management for the Graduate School of Business, named the Olin School in 1988. He taught courses in organizational behavior and labor relations, among others.

In the early 1960s Schoen realized that business schools could take a more active and constructive role in promoting equal opportunity employment, and, toward that goal, he founded the Consortium for Graduate Study in Management in 1966. It offers full merit-based scholarships to minority students in MBA programs. Begun with three universities, Washington University included, the consortium has grown to include nine other major universities.

Funds for scholarships were raised by Schoen and many consortium board members from private corporations, foundations and resources of member schools. He directed the consortium until 1980, when he returned to full-time teaching. Since the organization’s founding, it has brought more than 3,000 minority men and women into the ranks of American business management.

Schoen was the co-author of several textbooks, and he served as a management consultant to companies such as Mallinckrodt and Monsanto Co., as well as the U.S. Civil Service Commission. He was named Man of the Year by the Association for the Integration of Management in 1976; he was recognized for Distinguished Service and Leadership by the consortium in 1991 and chosen as 1998 Teacher of the Year by the University’s MBA students.

Schoen, who lived in St. Louis, was born in Daggett, Mich., and reared in Des Peres, Wis. He earned a bachelor’s degree in economics (magna cum laude) from Lawrence College (now University) in Appleton, Wis.; a master’s degree in economics from the University of Wisconsin in Madison; and both a master’s of business administration degree in management (with distinction) and a doctoral degree in management from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.

He was a member of Phi Beta Kappa and was active in many professional, honorary and social organizations. He is survived by his wife of 45 years, Patricia Schoen, two sons, Chris Schoen of Canton, Ohio, and Richard Schoen of Evanston, Ill; a daughter, Jennifer Jeffrey of Clayton; a sister, Norma Maxfield of Madison, Wis; and three grandchildren.
