What did you rank them?



yep... they do... but in my experience and for what I have seen it has little influence on their decision.


I've been think about this and have my own conspiracy theory :shock:

I feel like your ranking might affect your chances if your stats are on the lower end and depending on the school. These adcom's people are absolutely in love with their own school, so I find it hard to imagine that they don't feel a little burn when somebody who is below their average rank them #4-6. Also if it plays no influence why doesn't the consortium block them from seeing the rankings? If these schools are any good with analytics they probably have reports that show them matriculation success rate depending on where they land on their ranking. If less than 5% of students that rank you #6 accept the offer is there any incentive to invest resources in those application?

Of course people get accepted to their lower ranked schools, but I feel like this systematic approach is used in various fashions to shape their decisions. High ranked schools can offer more admissions since they know people want to go there (even if they don't get the fellowship) and I feel like lower ranked schools might be tired of being passed over and would rather admit most who rank them #1 and #2, even if they are weaker candidates as this ensures their yield is high and limits the number of people they have to offer admissions to.

My 2 wild cents lol

I ranked Goizueta last and still received an invite. I agree with the person who said that it may have been that person's profile.A school can only accept but so many consultants and Ibankers.

Got dinged by Yale and USC today. Yale was to be expected but USC came as a shock. I interviewed last Saturday with a first year. I thought it was fairly standard but evidently not. I'm WL at one school, 2 official dings and just waiting for the official ding from the other three.

Profile: older (30+), non trad background, 3.0 ivy 700 GMAT.

It's tough guys. Congrats to all who have gotten in and good luck to all still battling!

I also got dinged by Yale today. Not surprised or too concerned, at this point it is between Johnson/Darden/McCombs for me.

Sorry to hear! You never know, the WL or the other 3 could work out. If not, there is always next year. Last year I got dinged from the 3 schools I applied to. This year, I am waiting for decisions from Yale and Oxford. Looking back, going to business schools now is much better, timing-wise. Keep your chin up!

Is anyone still waiting to hear back after interviews?

At this point I've only heard final decisions from the two schools I didn't get interviews at Yale (Ding) and Emory (WL).

I interviewed at UNC and Johnson over two weeks ago and haven't heard anything... is this a bad sign?? Kind of freaking out over here.

Schools don't follow a standard pattern for final decisions. I interviewed at McCombs a month ago and Darden two weeks ago and haven't heard back yet, and don't expect to until after the draft next week.

Just Curious, Did the folks at Tepper tell you this directly when you interviewed? I interviewed over a month ago and the draft wasn't high up on my radar so I didn't think to ask.

Best of luck to both as we approach the light at the end of this very very very long tunnel!

Sorry if this question has been asked/answered before, but what is the likelihood that we could get scholarships from schools that we do not get the Consortium fellowship from?

Yes. Andrew told me this. He said that if I am awarded the fellowship I should know earlier, otherwise I would know on March 23rd like everyone else

Depends on the school. Wisconsin gave a me a full ride already, it doesn't say anywhere it is dependent of the fellowship or anything like that.

Do you all know when we will hear back from Yale? I have interviewed and I'm just waiting to hear. I notice that their date for all applicants is March 25th, but I have heard they tell Consortium applicants well before that date.

How long does it usually takes to find out the draft results? I am a little worried because I have to answer Mendoza by the 26th of this month.

You'll be fine, the consensus in the forum is that the draft is on Tuesday. So we should no probably by end of next week.

I don't think it's weird at all. That's the nature of the highly subjective MBA admissions process.. Furthermore, there are only three Olympic medals that can be awarded but there are eight runners so someone has to lose out.
