Finally, I got my interview invitation from McDonough about 30 minutes ago! FYI, they're requiring Consortium interviews to be done by the February 20th.


Did they mention this on your invite? My guess is that if no interview invite by say the 19th then expect a ding, would you characterize it the same way?


Yeah, that's why I figured I'd include that. I can't say they wouldn't make an exception for a few more applicants if they need to fill a few more spots, but my guess is that for the majority it's a denial. Best of luck to everyone!



Thanks for the info. The one good thing is that we do not have to wait that long haha.

Congrats again in your interview!

Does anyone know/have an idea about when we can expect to hear from schools about acceptance? I've noticed from other threads that schools who didn't give applicants the fellowship still let the know their decision around the same time as the draft (3/13). I imagine that schools who accepted but didn't give the fellowship don't want their admitted applicant waiting and falling deeply in love with the fellowship school for the 2 weeks before normal decisions are rolled out. Does anyone have an idea? I've interviewed at all of my schools and I am getting anxious/nervous/excited and hope I don't have to wait until end of March!


Congrats on the interviews...... If you do not mind me asking, Did you apply on the January round? If so, how long it took for you to receive the invite from Darden or McDonough after you receive the email from the schools that the materials are ready for review?


Yes, I applied in January. I received my Darden invite on 1/22 and interviewed last week. I am a reapplicant to McDonough so I don't anticipate being reinterviewed since I know that was not the reason why I was W/L last time.

Has anyone had success changing their CSGM rankings after submission? I finally visited schools this past week and I REALLY want to change my rankings. In theory, it should be easy for them to alter.

Thanks!

Honestly this is the first time I heard of changing the rankings after submitting the application but I am sure if you call them they will be able to guide you and let you know if it is possible. I have found that calling the consortium is quite easy and they are very approachable and helpful.

I would call their office ((636) 681-5460) and get an answer directly from them. I hope this helps.

FYI they said there's nothing they could do :(
Looks like best case scenario I'll be going to my second or third choice.

FYI; McDonough seems to still be reviewing applications. I received an email from the adcom today asking that I resend an updated link to my video essay because the initial link I provided wasn't working.

Thanks!!

Just got a Ding from Yale via email. I was expecting it since I did a horrible job at the video essays and it was my most rushed app. At least I am glad that they released the info early.

Anyone have R2 status updates?

I got Into Wisconsin with a full ride and am waiting to hear back from Tepper (interviewed), USC (interviewed though I see some acceptances have already gone out), Indiana (interviewed), Olin (interviewed) and Ross (never got an interview invite so I assume I’ve been dinged)

Also Kellogg (my reach) where I’m Interviewing this week.

Was the full ride from Wisconsin a Consortium Fellowship? If you don't mind, how did you rank your schools?

Personally, I haven't heard anything back as far as decisions. I've interviewed everywhere I applied, except Johnson. I'm attending the LEAD event next month to interview with them right before the draft.

Good luck!!

Nope Wisconsin was a merit scholarship. From what I undestand The Consortium fellowships won’t be released until March 16th or so
