Roughly 50%- 60% of admits (~600-700ish) gets full ride. They also give out partial scholarship.

Will schools call just with scholarship offers? Or will we also get calls to let us know we are CGSM members?

Looking at last year's numbers, calls may start today! :)

A friend of mine just got the call from Tepper that she is in with the Fellowship, so they have started...

Just called their office, they said that if you don´t get a fellowship you´ll be notified about your membership status in about a week.

I was just curious if anyone connected with Tuck admissions? I was reading prior year threads and it seems that many people made meaningful connections with admissions. I actually don't know anyone in admissions other than Dawna Clarke.

My interview was with an adcom, I also had a few calls with Amy Mitson for some Consortium related questions. That's about it though.

Last year 369 Consortium fellowships were offered out of 1,075 applications (approx 34%). It is based on your overall candidacy (GPA, GMAT, work experience, future goals, etc. are all taken into consideration).

It's not entirely about your overal candidacy (GMAT, Goals, etc). Before you can even be considered for a Fellowship, you need to be granted admission into the Consortium by the CGSM. This is where your Mission Essay comes into play. Upon admission into the Consortium, you are then eligible to receive the Consortium Fellowship from the schools that have decided to admit you.

It is a merit based fellowship and the sequence plays out as follows: admission --> elgible membership --> elgible fellowship. Clearly once granted membership each school will determine fellowships based on merit. Define "merit" accordingly.

Right - I agree with you. I'm just attempting to clarify that you need to be granted admission into the Consortium (based on mission commitment) before even being considered for a Fellowship (based on merit).

The 50-60% number is based off people who were accepted to a schools, not the total number of applicants

I believe the annual report states that the total # of people accepted to at least one school was low 700s. So the odds are actually in your favor if you get into a school of getting a fellowship.
