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.[/quote]

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

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.[/quote]


I mean, I have yet to see a R2 applicant be invited to interview. Super strange. I interviewed at all my consortium schools. What happens if you ranked Anderson #1 and applied R2, how would they determine if they were to give you the fellowship without having given you an interview??? It's just very strange.

Tuck should likely start tomorrow, as their overall deadline (ding-day) is Friday.

Eek - I hate to be the bearer of potential bad news but I applied to Anderson through Consortium and interviewed with them so I do think they have done their Consortium interviews.

On another note it's so nice to see all the good news on this thread! Continued best of luck to everyone!!

GMATCLUB is a small sample of applicants so hardly indicative of anything. I know many people applying thru the consortium who are not on here. Admission --> elgible membership --> elgible fellowship. That's the order so if one is not admitted to their consortium school then obviously said school can't consider them. Anderson, I'm sure, has published deadlines so just wait for those deadlines.

Good morning folks,

Best of luck to those waiting to hear from Yale SOM, TUCK, and others. I'm officially retired from the chat. I'm thankful to have two admits so far with money. Next week will be the big day. After all of hypeness is over, please take a chance to reflect upon your experiences throughout this journey.

Hypothetically speaking - If you received a fellowship to your top ranked consortium school and were also accepted to HSW, which one would you choose?

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.

Got up from my desk for 2 minutes and now have a missed call from Yale admissions with no voicemail. They shouldn't do this to people...

Seems like Tuck just started with the calls...I'm so anxious that I am pulling the hair out of my head at a rate faster than my natural balding genetic heritage is! Which is pretty fast!

So I got into Darden and Haas and I think Tuck? Both Darden and Haas said they couldn't give me the fellowship because I didn't rank them #1. So what are the chances that my #1 admitted me, but didn't want me for the fellowship, but my #2 and #3 picked their admits that ranked them #1 and ran out by the time I came around and when the dust settles I get admitted into all the schools, but no fellowship because of the way they draft?

That would be a twisted fate!

That kind of scenario definitely happens. Hence why some people strategize their rankings...

I agree on H and S. But for W is definitely a toss-up. I have met a few Wharton/Tuck dual-admits that have chosen Tuck and most haven't received a dime from Tuck. Are you interested in finance?

I'm starting to grow a little impatient... No calls from Kelley or Goizueta regarding fellowship yet?

Yep, I work in PE. If you're not in finance I agree that there are other schools that definitely would be competitive with Wharton. H and S I personally think are schools that you just don't turn down, no matter what your career is.

Tell me about it... nothing from Goizueta, and I was admitted back in December for R1...
