FROM The Consortium Admissions Blog: Happy holidays from your friends at The Consortium!
Image
It’s the end of another productive year for The Consortium. We’re grateful for the work of all our students and alumni, the members of our Board of Trustees and the Corporate Advisory Board, the representatives from our member schools and, of course, the dedicated staff of The Consortium.

It’s become something of a holiday tradition at The Consortium to capture a holiday picture of the team. Check out the picture at the top of the page to see who’s who:

Seated: Monica Black, Janice Wells-White, D-Lori Newsome-Pitts, Jeff Farris, Paige Wheeler, Karen Stocking.

Standing: Peter Aranda, Glenn Wilen, Travis McAlister, Dedric McCall, Anthony Davis, Diane Harris, Danni Young, Angie Holland, Kurt Greenbaum, Jim Ott, Glenda Hibbert.

Not pictured: Abbey Martinez, whose due date was two days before this photo was taken.

Speaking of holiday traditions

We asked the team to share their favorite holiday traditions from their own family with us. Here are their replies.

Anthony J. Davis, vice president, development: “My favorite holiday tradition occurred in my younger years. After we would decorate the entire house about 10 days before Christmas. We would count down the days. And Christmas morning I would experience the magic. After not being able to sleep the night before, I would come down stairs only to discover that I had a visit from Old St. Nick. with most of the things I had requested. Those were the days.”

Monica Black, director, development: “Christmas lights in all different colors! I remember my Dad driving our family, my Mom, and my brother, all night to get to my grandmother and grandfather’s house and no matter how late we would arrive, sometimes 3 a.m. Those big old fashioned lights would be all over the outside of house, welcoming us home and letting me know Christmas and family time was here! Those beautiful lights and memories are my treasured gifts!”

Janice Wells-White, vice president, program administration: “Every holiday, I order Garrett’s popcorn for our household. On Christmas morning my husband and I sit on the floor opening presents while eating Garrett’s famous ChicagoMix (caramel and cheese) popcorn and listening to our favorite holiday music. While the tradition is simple, it allows us to share two of our favorite things — my love for music and his love for Garrett’s. It’s also our first tradition as a married couple.”

Abbey Martinez, director, conferences and events: “We celebrate our ‘Christmas’ on Christmas Eve with making our favorite appetizers and a potato soup. Then we have our Christmas Eve appetizer feast followed by opening presents around 10 p.m. It was a tradition that started with my parents allowing us to open one gift on Christmas Eve and then we had to wait until Christmas morning for the rest. However, one year, we opened one present at 6 p.m. and then convinced them to open another at 6:30 p.m. and by 7:30 p.m. all of the presents were OPEN! From then on, we would always open on Christmas Eve and a new tradition was created.”

D-Lori Newsome-Pitts, director, individual giving, student and alumni relations: “My favorite holiday tradition is to purchase a special ornament and add it to the tree. I purchased my first tree eight years ago. From that year until now, I have always purchased a special ornament. The first ornament I purchased was from Crate and Barrel. It is a penguin that has a clear belly with little white beads inside. The year I purchased this ornament was also the first Christmas my husband and I celebrated as a married couple, so it is just really special. That ornament always reminds me of the years and how far we have come.”

Danni Young, director, recruiting: “Our family tradition during the holiday season is the celebration of Kwanzaa. In the African community, the celebration of Kwanzaa is a time of reflection, recommitment and remembrance of our ancestors. There are seven guiding principles for each day. My favorite principle is Kujichagulia…which means self-determination. Kwanzaa runs from Dec. 26 to Jan. 1. Happy Kwanzaa, everyone!”

Glenda Hibbert, development services coordinator: “Since our children’s very first Christmas, I have traditionally bought them a Christmas ornament. The ornament generally signifies something that took place in their lives that year, and I make sure to date them. Their collections go with them as they move out on their own so that they can take the memories of their childhood Christmases with them to display on their own Christmas trees.”

Jeff Farris, senior manager, database operations: “Baking for family and friends. It’s the only time of year that I make certain recipes.”

Angie Holland, administrative coordinator: “La Posadas … with the aging of my uncles and aunts, the tradition of visiting each house has taken its toll. Instead, everyone comes to my parents’ house on Christmas Eve bringing a covered dish. We play games, play music and have a wonderful time into the early Christmas morning. We also celebrate Three Kings Day. It’s always a nice surprise to wake up to one more special gift that may have been missed at Christmas.”

Karen Stocking, senior manager, accounting: “I really enjoy family time during the holidays. We all come together for food and fun. We eat, play games and laugh. It’s always a good time!”

Kurt Greenbaum, director, communications: “My wife and I hang two small green bows, tied from cloth ribbon we bought at a drug store, on our Christmas tree every year. They’re the last two bows we still have from many years ago, on our first Christmas together. We didn’t have any Christmas tree ornaments and we tied red and green bows from the cloth ribbon onto the tree to decorate it. We managed to keep two of the bows and they get prominent places on our tree every year now.”

First Consortium class: Voices from the past  [#permalink]

FROM The Consortium Admissions Blog: First Consortium class: Voices from the past
For many years, The Consortium published a newsletter called “The Consortium Review.” This article is reprinted from the spring 1989 edition, featuring recollections from the inaugural class of tear gas, ambivalence among white classmates, the fall-out from the Kennedy and King assassinations and more.

IT’S A WARM St. Louis summer in 1967 and twenty black men, the newly selected Consortium fellows, are gathered at Washington University to participate in the first Consortium Orientation Program. Their average age is around 23, and many have just completed their undergraduate education.

Image
The first Consortium logo that didn’t include any of the member schools’ logos.

At the same time, many unusual occurrences are taking place in America. The Vietnam Era Conflict is in high gear along with nationwide protests of that war. The 1964 Civil Rights Act is beginning to generate job opportunities for minorities and women, and Martin Luther King, Jr.’s dream appears to be within reach.

Now, over two decades later, the Consortium Class of 1969 is rapidly approaching their twentieth anniversary. To tap their perspectives on what life was like during their two-year pursuit of an MBA, Harry Portwood talked with those who completed the program. This unique group discussed their views on what it was like in graduate business school, their toughest hurdles, how the MBA made a difference in their lives, and their plans for the future. They also shared their views on racial strife in the late sixties and compared it to today’s much publicized racial incidents on campuses.

The discussion began with each person sharing his perspectives on what life was like on a predominantly white university campus in the late sixties. For Arnell Johnson, being at Washington University in St. Louis was a different experience since he had never attended school with Whites. “Even though the late sixties were the waking years of civil rights, it was a strange experience transitioning from an all-black school.”

James Jackson noted there was some fear on the part of the 20 young black fellowship winners as they pursued their MBA studies. “You must remember that King and Kennedy were assassinated at that time, there was racial unrest along with black militancy, conservatives versus radicals… and Watts had burned.”

Also, Charles Randall mentioned that in Bloomington, Indiana, there were parades by the Ku Klux Klan. “That was not a comforting sight to see.” Randall exclaimed. Leon Todd mentioned interviewing amidst tear gas during a campus student demonstration. He commented, “There was a bewildering depression in the air about civil rights and a despondence about the loss of King and Kennedy, … but we have fared better than I would have predicted back then.”

Asked about some of the toughest hurdles for them, they mentioned in some cases, it was difficult getting started without a business background (didn’t understand the jargon); it was tough comprehending finance and accounting concepts; quantitative business analysis was a bear; just making the adjustment to a totally different environment was taxing.

Several people stated that, as a black graduate student, you carried a responsibility to be involved in black student and community affairs. This additional demand on your time required some stretching… but social responsibilities for this group were and still remain important. Both C. Vernon Mason and Charles Adams experienced a new addition to their families–baby girls.

It is enlightening that these pioneers went through this period with fairly positive attitudes about their MBA experiences. All felt the true leadership and guidance of select faculty members made the difference. These faculty members seemed to have had a hope about the future of Blacks in America. Regarding their white classmates, it was felt that some of the white classmates would have preferred not having them there. “The majority of Whites did not try to destroy our educational opportunity, nor did they try to help; few really cared,” said Randall.

When asked did the fellowship opportunity make a difference, all 10 who com— pleted the program and became the “Class of ’69” felt that without the MBA, their lives would have been much less dimensional. The MBA program provided a methodical approach and the analytical skills to manage with precision. Ray Weathersby stated, “It was exciting to be a part of the solution rather than part of the problem.”

An interesting aside to the above program benefits that were mentioned was the com— radeship that developed among the group. Being Black, needing each other, sharing and working together was a key ingredient. Larry Harris said, “The comradeship started at the Orientation Program… brotherhood developed from that experience. It was quite a learning experience and a ideal model for future fellows.”

In discussing their interest in a Consortium Alumni Association, most felt that it was needed, it was overdue and it would be a valuable asset. All see a need to be present at future Orientation Programs, if only to share their life experiences or to be “Big Brothers” to new fellows.

Although most experienced some racial strife in their college days, comparing their experiences in the sixties to today’s campus problems, today’s issues appear to be somewhat different and more perplexing. Carl Bradford stated, “Today we see a reflection of the tone of a conservative society. The 60s were a free time… Black power was on the way up. Now Blacks are being held back because others think we are getting too much.”

In the sixties, there was a motivation to be positive in helping overcome the inequities experienced by minorities. Now, it appears that many Whites assume minorities are seeking special privileges and getting them. Although this is not true in reality, some resentment exists, even a bitterness of sorts. Some Whites feel that it is now safe to openly vent their anger or to overtly voice racist thoughts.

The group was very concerned that today’s minority youth are more passive and therefore may not be adequately trained to manage racial issues. They feel a strong constitution is needed to cope with such problems. Further, the group felt as parents they need to stress black history and share their past experiences to ensure that their children are not lulled to sleep and thus make themselves more vulnerable to racial attacks.

The use of informal networks helped in the sixties. Students were different then… more into radical causes, resulting in a system to further the goal to improve the status of minorities. Emphasis has shifted—the “me first attitude” is now a matter of course. America has gotten rid of its guilt over the last 20 years.

Several members of the Consortium Class of 1969 pointed out that such behavior has become acceptable and more prevalent with surprisingly little reaction from Blacks. What does the future hold for this group? They are in their forties now and still have many years to continue in their careers. Most appear not to be satisfied that they have “made it” and all see future growth either in their professional endeavors or expect to provide greater attention to their community involvement.

Lamont Jones sums it up in this comment: “After 20 years, I think it’s been an invaluable experience but, I am still not as successful as I want to be.”

The next issue of The Consortium Review will present Part II of this article covering the Class of 1969’s thoughts and comments about our newly selected fellows along with a message to the Class of 1989.

A big “THANK YOU” goes out to this fine group for taking the time to candidly communicate their thoughts, feelings and insights. The excellent material provided by the group merits a two part series to enable us to share this material with our readers.

Just looking for a little more clarity...I was accepted into my #1 school but no mention of the scholarship.

So, does that mean they passed on me, and I have no shot at the scholarship? Or, will there be some sort of re-evaluation come March time? Was slightly confused on how schools decide to award the scholarship in the first round.

Thanks!

Are you talking about Tuck? If you are, Tuck is done handing out fellowships. Remember that it's a small MBA, so there aren't that many fellowships handed over. I was told over the phone and will receive an official fellowship letter next week. I hope this clears up your confusion.

No need to worry. Assuming they follow what they did in Round 1, they won't even release your applications to your schools until the Round 2 deadline. So, right now, no one has seen your application.

Thank you and everyone else for the response. I have another question. In the summer I left my firm (a leading public sector consulting firm) to volunteer on a criminal justice reform initiative. As the initiative picked up more momentum, I decided to extend my stay and I now plan on staying until I start business school. It aligns with my long-term interest of working in the social impact space, my recommendations from my consulting firm bosses address the fact that I left voluntarily, and I retain the option of returning. Nevertheless I am concerned that the admissions committee will look at me sideways for leaving a good job to work voluntarily. Everybody tells me that it's ok, but do you guys think that this could be a big sticking point?

I can't see that being an issue, perhaps others will think differently.

A legacy of entrepreneurship  [#permalink]

FROM The Consortium Admissions Blog: A legacy of entrepreneurship
Consortium fellow Jonathan Brown earned his MBA from the University of Virginia’s Darden School of Business in 2011. He shared his story with us to help other Consortium members understand the fulfilling opportunities that exist as an independent financial advisor.

I thought I was living the dream: Less than a year after graduating, I became a marketing manager for a local sports agency and found myself at Super Bowl XLVI with the “Got Milk?” and “FuelUpToPlay60” campaigns.

My pre-MBA goal had been to become a sports marketing guru who worked on multi-million dollar Super Bowl advertising campaigns. Sports marketing and corporate partnerships were going to be “my thing.” I’d done it.

Accomplishing my goal in a matter of months left a lot to be desired. I was still searching for significance, independence and validation that felt long overdue. I parted ways with the sports agency in December 2012, determined to develop a mobile sports app I conceptualized at Darden. I was in that awkward position of starting my own company and interviewing for positions with other companies.

The app was just a part of me by then; I’d been working on the concept for a while. Throughout the process, I shared a lot of my experiences with my father. We were always talking sports anyway. He and I spoke about the app as if we were partners, and I think he really respected the way I was approaching the process.

And then it hit me…
One day, my father explained that his time as a financial advisor was winding down. In lieu of selling his book of business, he wondered if I was interested in becoming his successor.

While I was out there trying to create my own legacy, it never occurred to me that I was already a part of someone else’s.

Immediately, every twist and turn on this non-traditional career path was relevant! The MBA, the mortgage experience, the credit counseling, the advertising sales, even the 26 companies I helped certify 15 years ago as small businesses—it all mattered.

This wasn’t the first time my compensation would not include a salary, or the first time I’d be working in personal finance. This wasn’t even the first time I’d have to file taxes as a business owner.

This was, however, the first time I’d have a partner. This was the first time I’d really believe in the company for which I worked. And this was the first time I’d be the CEO.

Opportunity for Diversity
There are very few minority-owned financial firms and I happen to be one of them.

In a 2011 report on workforce diversity, the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association surveyed 18 large financial services firms and found that 8 percent of their brokers or financial advisors were “people of color.”

And at independent financial advisory firms, African Americans most likely make up just 1 percent to 2 percent of all advisors, according to industry executives interviewed by Financial Planning magazine.

Given this opportunity, one of my goals is to help Consortium fellows understand the fulfilling opportunities that exist as an independent financial advisor and perhaps work to close the financial education gap that exists between our community’s income and its wealth.

1) For those confused about whether or not they received a Consortium fellowship, just check the same website through which you applied to the Consortium. You will find a decision link and it will spell it out for you, the school to which you have been admitted and the fellowship amount.

2) Anyone considering turning down a full fellowship for another program? If so, which one?/why? Or anyone applying to more programs R2 in spite of this? Happy holidays everyone!

Looking to see if anyone can help! The application asks - Are you a member of Management Leadership for Tomorrow (MLT) - and I'm not sure how to answer. I was a member of the MLT career prep program as an undergraduate but not its MBA program so not sure if I should answer yes or no.

Does anyone here know how I should answer?

I would give them a call, but my feeling is that they're probably interested in the MBA version of MLT so it's likely a "no."

Hello,

I am Applying to the Consortium for R2 and after visiting for their W.A.G.E weekend my top school is Emory. I visited I received my GMAT score and it is super low. I have a 510. Looking at test dates, I will not be able to schedule a test date until after the deadline for Consortium (Jan 5) and deadline for R3 - Emory (Jan 8). I know that this score is nearly impossible to get in anywhere with. Should I attempt to re-take this test and email my new scores in and be considered for R4?

Any suggestions?

From my experience, some schools will allow you to submit scores after the deadline if you provide them with a heads up through your optional essay and/or speak to an Adcom directly. Those that allow this do have an informal deadline for receiving the scores though (i.e. before their respective application reviews/round tables would commence). I'd recommend reaching out to Goizueta and seeing if they are flexible. If fellowship/scholarship funds are critical for you, you may want to consider sticking with the round 2 Consortium deadline as being pushed to Round 4 may lead to a lower amount of funds available (and a smaller amount of seats left in the class).

Hope this helps!

I was not admitted into my #1 school, but was admitted into #2, 3, and 4 so I have to wait until March for the fellowship decision - does anyone have any statistics around how many scholarships are handed out in December vs March? Are most fellowships already handed out by the time the March draft happens?

I thought the other schools gave you scholarships, which for what I've seen is not that uncommon. You can still get the membership as long as long as you enroll in one of the consortium universities. So, if I understand correctly and have tuition coverage for all of the schools, you have the pan by the handle and can choose whichever school you want.

Hello again Nacho! I did receive some $$ from schools 2 and 3, but it was partial at both schools and not full scholarship as the Fellowship would be. I am excited and hopeful for membership at the very least to work together for a great cause, for future networking, OP, etc. The decision to choose among the schools is so difficult, I am hoping one will offer the Consortium Fellowship and make the choice easier for me :-D

Did you apply first round Consortium or second?

I was not admitted into my #1 school, but was admitted into #2, 3, and 4 so I have to wait until March for the fellowship decision - does anyone have any statistics around how many scholarships are handed out in December vs March? Are most fellowships already handed out by the time the March draft happens?


I thought the other schools gave you scholarships, which for what I've seen is not that uncommon. You can still get the membership as long as long as you enroll in one of the consortium universities. So, if I understand correctly and have tuition coverage for all of the schools, you have the pan by the handle and can choose whichever school you want.


Hello again Nacho! I did receive some $$ from schools 2 and 3, but it was partial at both schools and not full scholarship as the Fellowship would be. I am excited and hopeful for membership at the very least to work together for a great cause, for future networking, OP, etc. The decision to choose among the schools is so difficult, I am hoping one will offer the Consortium Fellowship and make the choice easier for me :-D

Did you apply first round Consortium or second?


I see!. I'm in the same boat as you. Whichever gives me a scholarship is were I will go. I am applying for the second round, in fact as of right now I'm working on my diversity essay. It seems that everyime I open one of these essays, I have tons of things to change!... I'm glad there is a deadline otherwise I probably would never turn them in.... heheh
