Thanks energy2pe for sharing them on the thread. Are they common to all consortium applications? I am posting them on the first post so that others can find them easily.

Hey All!

Hope you're all finding success and hearing from the schools of your choosing. Just wondering if anyone has heard from UC Berkeley or UNC.

Cheers.

EDIT: Went to previous years' chats re: Consortium and Haas and it seems pretty consistent: They genrally send invites for consortium applicants late November though middle December.


I heard from Haas in late October, about 2 weeks after submitting my app. Definitely surprised they got back to me so quickly considering timelines from past years!


Congrats! I'll remain hopeful. Did you receive the standard "ready to review email" or were you otherwise notified? Good luck out there!

I received a "Thank you for applying to Haas" email a few days after submitting, then a few days after that (about a week after submission) I got the ready for review email. Interview invite came a week or so after that, which I thought was surprisingly fast... maybe I just got lucky with my first reader?

Good luck!

Not sure what you mean by all consortium applications?

I think these are the same for regular recommenders (non-consortium recs). But pretty sure they are different for the Consortium recommender.

I wouldn't get too bummed out! Looking back at historical Consortium forums you can see that a lot of these schools didn't do their major consortium push until Thanksgiving!

Good luck!

Good point. But aren't most of the decisions for these 1st and 2nd week of December? Feels like they're cutting it close...

Check the Haas thread. Someone posted analysis of last couple of years invites. Looks like they are about half way through barely.

Good luck!

I don't disagree but everyone from last year noted the quick turn around- some had interviews the very next after receiving an invite. I'm going to remain positive- you should too!

Just got an interview invite from Olin and yesterday denied from USC. I hadn’t heard from other schools yet.

I interviewed with Yale SOM. I received their interview invite even before my application was released by the Consortium.

I also received an email today from a consortium fellow at Georgetown congratulating me on my admissions interview, but I did not get an invite yet. I'm a bit confused about that.

I didn't get an interview from either and tuck never sent me a log in to their application. Does this mean a straight rejection?

Nope, I applied RD (submitted mid-September). I thought my essays were fairly strong too, so I'm worried that it reflects that the rest of my profile is weaker than I had hoped. Fingers crossed!

Hopefully not :)

Did you do the applicant initiated interview for Tuck?
