well... so far I know I got the membership (one of the schools lower ranked in my application told). But don't know who gave me the Fellowship (I know one gave it to me), at this point it could either be my #1 or #2! Kind of freaking out over here! Com'on Tuck!!


How do you know you got the fellowship?


Because two schools gave me full tuition awards before the draft, saying that would be replaced by the consortium fellowship if they got to draft me. And one of them told me I have been accepted as a member of the consortium, so someone drafted me. I don't know if I'm making any sense :D


Being accepted to the consortium is distinct from being offered the consortium fellowship.

If I understand this correctly, Nacho, you were accepted to the Consortium as a member, but you are waiting to see if you have the fellowship funding, right? It would seem odd for one school to disclose that another school (named or not) is going to give you funding. And, conceivably, you could be drafted with or w/o the fellowship. Does that make sense or did I misunderstand you?

Kind of... I actually just got off the phone from one of the Adcoms.

I have full tuition remition from them (chose your name scholarship), and I am a consortium member. So essentially what they told me was, you ranked us too low for us to draft you(someone above you drafted you, this was implied), however, if you attend our school you get all the benefits (Full tuition remition + attendance to Consortium events). The only difference is I wouldn't be a consortium Fellow, just a member, it is only a difference in name if I end-up choosing that school.

Congrats! Did you just get the call? I'm surprised they are still calling people after close of business

:shock: Is Tuck your #1? If Tuck admits you how much $ will they need to give you in scholarships to turn down the full ride Darden fellowship?

I ranked Tuck #1, but I love Darden too...and Johnson. I will have to see how it all plays out. Chicago Booth is one of my top choices too...so I will see what happens this week and next week.

Anyone for Anderson?
They've been letting non-Consortium applicants know but haven't seen any decisions come through for Consortium applicants.

Still nothing. Hoping Friday is the day based on last year's timeline. Anderson choosing to group R1 consortium into R2 has been the most painful part of this process for me.

Same here. I was a R1 and R2 non-Consortium are getting calls this week.

Well ladies and gents, I'm looking forward to hearing from Yale SOM tomorrow.

"Round 1 applicants should expect to receive their admissions decision on December 7, 2015. Round 2 applicants should expect to receive their admissions decision by March 10, 2016. Applicants will receive their decision by close of business (5 p.m. ET)"

Same. Still no word. Loooong wait for sure. It blows my mind to think that in the time since I interviewed, folks have applied, interviewed and been accepted.
