Just put down my deposit! See you all this summer. Accepted R1 here.

Are folks going to the admitted weekend March 24?



Hey Cessna and congrats! I'll be there — see you at kickoff on the 24th.


Hey CAVU, since you're enrolling, do you know what is the date in May when classes start in Ithaca? I'm trying to plan and the time is approaching quickly. Thanks for all you do here!


Hey STEMBusiness, and thanks! I feel ya there, May is coming up faster than I ever imagined

The start date is May 14. But here's what they say in detail:

"Sunday, May 14th, 2017 — Cornell Tech MBA Program Begins

We advise that you arrive in Ithaca early to get settled. Once orientation and classes get underway, it will be hard to find time to unpack, get your phone turned on, etc. Your program starts with Check-In on Sunday, May 14th, so we encourage you to look for an apartment lease start date that will allow you to move in before that weekend."

This is what I got from the adcom...
I believe the committee is meeting tomorrow(friday) to make final decisions for Round 2 candidates. If they feel they need more information or documentation in order to make their choice, they’ll let you know at the latest by early next week.

Thanks for the welcome CAVU, I've been lurking for a decent amount of time and thought I'd drop a line.

I'm from the east coast, close to the border.

Hoping some other R3'ers will make an appearance, though perhaps that's optimistic at this point in time? :think: ruffles anyone?

+ A big congrats to the admits thus far!

Very sorry to hear that abhibad! That's disappointing news — I was pullin for ya man! At any rate, I totally understand wanting to know what went wrong. It could be that nothing even did, as it seems to have been extra competitive this year across the board. You may know that most schools (with the exception of Tuck) do not typically provide feedback. As for Cornell Tech's policy on this, that is a very good question. Given that it's such a small program, they might be willing to give you some general feedback. My advice is to send an email to your interviewer, if that person was Christine or Bianca, to see if you could get some general idea of why you didn't make the cut. If you interviewed with someone else, I'd just email Christine to ask.

Typically schools are pretty leery about telling people why they got dinged, so be sure to let her know that you understand this and don't wish to put her in a tough position, but since you have your heart set on Cornell Tech, any insight or general feedback on your admissions decision would be incredibly appreciated, as you hope to strengthen any weakneases and reapply.

Again, Im really sorry to hear it was a ding. If you do indeed decide to reapply, definitely keep in touch this year.

Thanks CAVU for all kind words.....my interviewer was Gail , have already emailed her, lets see if i get a response...I don't know if too many years of experience(20) was the reason or was it something else? I thought my presentation and interview went quite well...

It could be any of the hundreds of variables they consider :) so please don't torture yourself too much by trying to pinpoint a firm reason!

It's also entierely possible it had nothing to do with you at all, and could have been due to the composition of the class that resulted from Round 1 (maybe they had already admitted a few people with a similar profile).

But hopefully you get something actionable from Gail.

As for your 20 years of experience, that is atypical but I doubt that did you in. You did get an interview after all. If age/experience were a deal breaker, you'd probably just have gotten an outright ding without interview. Curious to know — was this a question they asked you in the interview? Something like "why an MBA now given your many years of experience?" FWIW, I have 10 years of WE and from what I know so far, I might be there oldest member of the class.

Feel free to DM me if you'd like to share more details about your profile and chat further.

Hey everyone, I have an interview scheduled for this Friday and I would like to confirm whether or not the interviewer will be familiar with the entire content of the application (namely, the creativity statement), or will it mostly be a blind interview?

Thanks alot!

I interviewed for the two year program, and my interviewer told me that she had seen my resume and some notes from the person who reviewed my app but nothing else.
