believe I will be applying to johnson for 2012, probably round 1. someone should post the interview questions, just for the same of completeness.

edit: here they are

1. Describe your greatest professional achievement and how you were able to add value to your organization. [400 words]

2. What career do you plan to pursue upon completing the MBA and why? How will the Johnson School help you achieve this goal? [400 words]

3. You are the author for the book of Your Life Story. Please write the Table of Contents for the book. [400 words]

Thank you so much!

I'm a 2009 waitlisted candidate and would be applying in R1 most probably.
I'm still struggling with what new to write in my essays assuming that they are going to remain the same (as per clearadmit)

Thanks,

I've only seen NYU and Cornell's latest stats, but it seems to me like these are some pretty dramatic jumps. I'm curious as to whether this increased competitiveness is an aberration or here to stay.

Thought this thread would be a lil more active today. The app went live, it's officially on! Reading some threads from last year it seemed as though some people were complainin about Cornell's online app. I've only seen 2 other schools thusfar, but I must say that I am impressed with Johnson's application intro page. There's a bunch of interesting and useful videos and links to take a look at...

wow..it's on. First deadline is Oct 6. Such a quick turnaround.
Ugh.. this application requires scanned pictures to be inserted to word doc first before it can be uploaded.

Hi current applicants + students! Hope all is well..
Any advice on how to approach the "table of contents" essay?
Do you simply write 40 - 50 one liners??

That's pretty much the idea, give a brief explanation per topic might also work.
This is meant to be a creative piece, so have fun doing it.

You might want to check out last year's thread. I remember there being a fair bit of discussion on this. But I hear you, I know this topic will be a struggle for me too.

I am not sure where someone got the class (of 2011) profile. Can you please post the link for the class profile from the Johnson website?

The only thing I found represented 2009 and 2010 class profiles.

The stats provided by Sentiment are accurate. They were sent in an email to current students by the Director of Admissions.

How's everyone doing on the Cornell app and essays? October 6th is getting real close real fast. Just out of curiosity, how has everyone handled the work experience section of the app? It doesn't appear as though you can report multiple positions with the same employer...
