Get in? Yes you can get in to any school you applied to. In terms of re-arranging your ranking for fellowship consideration, i don't think thats possible. To my knowledge, its low probability you get the fellowship after your first ranked school anyway.


I thought the consortium grants it to you. Is it the school that grants fellowship?


School has discretion over the fellowship.

Yea, I understand you can get accepted to any school applied. I thought how it works is consortium then gives you a yes or no for scholarship. For example you get accepted at #1 and #5, consortium informs you yes you get the fellowship. If I wanted to go to #5 instead of #1, can I tell #1 to withdraw me then I go to #5 with scholarship.


I think the best way to think about it is, CGSM can decide whether you're eligible to be a Consortium Member (ie, do you fit the mission) but the school ultimately decides whether they give you the fellowship. Hence the 'draft' in March. Does that make sense?

Okay.... So let's say you're 1,3,5 accept you. Does 1 have the opportunity to give you it first then 3 then 5? What's the lowest school you've heard someone ranking receive the fellowship?

Thats exactly correct. I've spoken to CGSM students at every school I applied to and the vast majority had that school #1. They mentioned some students they knew going to #2 ranked schools. Heard of one person at their #3. That said, you could certainly get into your #2 and that school give you other funding outside of the fellowship too...

The whole process is quite odd. I have one friend who is at their #6 and still got the fellowship. I have heard you can leverage your fellowship from your #1 if you decide to attend your #2 or #3 to get money. I know a few people who have done that, it just won't be called the Consortium fellowship. It's all confusing really.

brooklynhipster question: was your interview invite from UCLA for a special Consortium interview day or just a general invite?

Hm, I'm not sure. I'm doing skype so I doubt they have consortium specific skype interviews but I could be wrong.

Oh ok. I was hoping they had a Consortium interview day like other schools have sometimes.
