I don't believe this was shared previously-- below is last year's CGSM class profile representing all those who applied through CGSM and were accepted to at least one member program.
On one of the webinars, CGSM mentioned they had this information publicly available. For anyone that wanted this info, they just needed to email CGSM. Insightful set of stats, to say the least.

Ethnicity
African American: 48%
Hispanic/Latino: 25%
American Indian/Alaskan Native: 3%
Multiethnic: 5%
Asian: 10%
White/Caucasian: 8%
Hawaiian or Pacific Islander: 1%

GPA
Average: 3.35
80% Range: 2.89-3.81

GMAT
Average: 661
80% Range: 590-720

Wow, that GMAT average really surprises me. That's way below most of the member school averages of 700+.

I do not believe they will be having that event this year. It was not featured on the consortium's list of member schools' diversity weekends. I'd recommend reaching out to someone from admissions such as Stephanie Barbee-Williams just to be sure.

For those applying to Darden, did you guys notice that the essays are different for CGSM applicants?

Regular applicants
Describe the most important professional feedback you have received and how you responded to this feedback. [500 words]

CGSM applicants
What is your short-term, post-MBA career goal and why? [150 words]
Tell us what you would want your learning team to know about you. [100 words]
If you could go anywhere in the world with Darden, where would you go, and why? [50 words]
Charlottesville has a renowned film festival, book festival, and vibrant music scene. What is your favorite film, book, or song? [15 words]

I just want to make sure that these four shorter CGSM essay prompts replace, and aren't in addition to, the one essay prompt Darden requires of regular applicants. Any idea?

They replace the regular ones. A lot of the schools have different essay requirements for Consortium applicants.

Thanks Goillini13! Good to know other schools switch out essay prompts for CGSM applicants, Darden was the only school on my list to do so.

Anyone else attending Cornell's JMB this year? Got my invite last week. I'll also be attending the Diversity at Darden Open House if anyone is interested in meeting up at either event.

I applied for Stern Diversity Weekend. I applied very close to the end of the app cycle so I feel like odds aren't in my favor.

I was under the impression that everyone heard back regarding Stern's Diversity Weekend last Friday, 9/16. I was accepted.

For those people who are potentially interested in attending UCLA Anderson please see our website for our upcoming Embracing Diversity weekend. I can assure you that getting to experience a school first-hand adds depth to both essays and overall applications. We hope to see you there. Best of luck in the application process.

Is anyone re-applying to Consortium? Does anyone know the acceptance rates for second time applicants?

Thank you!

Thank you!



Regarding the acceptance rate for second time applicants, I personally don't know how I'd interpret that stat even if they did release it. For me, it would only be helpful with the following knowledge:
1. How (if at all) did the CGSM applicant improve their application over the past year?
2. Did the person apply to different member schools? For example, if you apply only to Haas and are rejected then only re-apply to Simon the next year and are accepted, it's totally different. Since there are 18 member schools, the only way such statistic could be telling would be if the candidate applied to the same school(s) in the same order and with the same stats.
