ummm, isn't R2 over? the deposit deadline was yesterday, right?

As for your questions:

1) I think they really want you to come to Ithaca unless there is a lot of distance between you and the school (International or maybe West Coast).

2) Depends on the strength of your application and how your interview goes. I think over all it is about a 50% shot, but that's quite relative.

Has anyone tried to calculate any of these numbers:

1) What percentage of R3 applicants receive interviews?
2) Approximately how many R3 interviews will be granted this year?
3) What percentage of R3 interviewees are usually accepted?

If so, let me know what you've come up with.

Whoops R3. I forgot they had a funny deadline.

I think that is a bit presumptuous to expect candidates to make a trip to Ithica. Especially if they are not footing the costs of travel. It's almost a five hour drive for me or a $500 plane ticket. Either of which I would not consider token costs (and this is excluding an overnight stay). My policy for schools that are not within +/- 2 hours is that I'll visit if I get accepted. I am doing this with Georgetown since the ad-com is traveling to accomodate applicants.

Also, just to throw it out there, I heard a lot of the Cornell Alum interviews are tougher than on campus interviews for whatever reason. I drove there from NYC which is about 4.5 hours and then drove back the same night, so it's definitely do-able I did the same as you with georgetown (interviewed in NYC during one of their events), but I'll be visiting them next month anyway.

When did your application go complete? I called last week and was told that the reason my application is under "received" status is because they have not gotten to it yet...not sure if they intend to get to it this year or next .

I submitted on Jan 3rd. They notified me this morning about an interview invitation. Haven't been hawking the status changes.

I am doing this with Georgetown since the ad-com is traveling to accomodate applicants. If you're serious about getting in, I would highly, highly recommend it. I visited prior to applying, and went there again for my interview. And, I live in California. Is it possible to get in without going? Of course. But I would think not visiting for an interview (especially if you haven't previously visited) would diminish your chances quite a bit.

I have just received my offer letter from Cornell for the MILR/MBA Dual program from the ILR school's side. I thought it would be ok to wait for a decision from there before I apply for the MBA program, which should have happened before the deadline for round 3. But it didn't. The reason is I am a college senior from India and I didn't have too high hopes for getting an admit to the dual degree. But I did get in (yay!). So now I have to apply for Johnson in round 4. I understand it's very tough as I am an international applicant, college senior and don't have an amazing GMAT score. But I have an attitude which says that I have an amazing profile by a college senior's standards, especially from India; will write some kick ass essays and althoug getting in is really tough for me, it's not impossible! Ok so here goes. I would like to request some of you (especially those who have got in already), if you could help me out with my essays. I am aware that asking someone to write them for you is a big no no. And I am not going to ask anyone to do that. But I would like someone to review them for me and give me feedback, KEEPING ALL THE FACTORS IN MIND. I am posting my profile below for you to assess my chances. Please do reply as soon as possible. If I am doing something wrong/illegal that might dent my chances or later pose problems, please do tell me. After all, I'm just a 21 year old kid Thanks, Ankit Hi, I am Ankit and am a college senior from India. I do not have any prior full time work experience. However, I have two internships with start up firms based out of India. They aren't big names but personal growth here has been very good. I am also the founder of my own web and graphic design firm and have hired people after interviewing them for contract based jobs. I have worked and headed teams of size 3-10. Academically, I have 93% in grade 10, 86% in grade 12 (Maths Phys Chem option) and a current percentage of about 66% in Computer Science and Engineering from Panjab University which is highly regarded and well known as you would already be aware of. (It helps when the country's prime minister and one of the best economists is an alumni) I have also been recognized as India's Youngest Microsoft Certified Professional (when I was 14). I have topped both my schools (changed after grade ten) in English. I have been sub editor of the school magazine, been house captain (in charge of 300 students), served on the executive board of my school's alumni association and taken active interest in social work by volunteering to organize blood donation camps, educating beggars and working with Help Age India. In college, I have been an active member of the largest student organization on campus and managed funds for a year for the same. I was also the chief strategist for the organization and was instrumental in helping the organization win elections after 4 years of consecutive defeats (lead a team of over 500 students). I was also selected by a globally renowned consulting firm during recently concluded placements and was in the 2% students selected out of 350. I have also been a member of the international students’ organization, AIESEC. I have a 690 on my GMAT (Q 48; V 36; AWA 6.0) _________________ http://unclearadmit.tumblr.com Latest Blog Entry: 09-05-13 Its been too long ...

Hi,

I am Ankit and am a college senior from India. I do not have any prior full time work experience. However, I have two internships with start up firms based out of India. They aren't big names but personal growth here has been very good. I am also the founder of my own web and graphic design firm and have hired people after interviewing them for contract based jobs. I have worked and headed teams of size 3-10.

Academically, I have 93% in grade 10, 86% in grade 12 (Maths Phys Chem option) and a current percentage of about 66% in Computer Science and Engineering from Panjab University which is highly regarded and well known as you would already be aware of. (It helps when the country's prime minister and one of the best economists is an alumni)

I have also been recognized as India's Youngest Microsoft Certified Professional (when I was 14). I have topped both my schools (changed after grade ten) in English. I have been sub editor of the school magazine, been house captain (in charge of 300 students), served on the executive board of my school's alumni association and taken active interest in social work by volunteering to organize blood donation camps, educating beggars and working with Help Age India.

I have also been a member of the international students’ organization, AIESEC.

I have a 690 on my GMAT (Q 48; V 36; AWA 6.0)

If you're serious about the dual degree at Cornell, contact the ILR school and see if you can defer you admit for 1 year. Then apply to Johnson next year with your ILR admit already in the bag.

You may have a tiny chance for R4 but if you don't get it, you will have to apply next year and also explain how you have improved in your app. (Mar - Nov/Jan doesn't give you a lot of time)
