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!


Congrats on getting an interview gnatrymmk! You ask a good question: the answer is that it is not, to my knowledge, a blind interview. But there's no clear indication of the interviewer's level of familiarity with your application. Your interviewer will likely have reviewed your resume, but perhaps not your creativity statement. It's entirely possible that the application reader who looked at your creativity statement and other materials to determine if you should get an interview, might not even be person who interviews you. Looking back on it, I'm not sure there was any part of the interview that drew upon my creativity statement in any form.

That said, to be completely honest, it truly doesn't matter either way, since the interview is only 30 minutes long and is dominated by the case presentation portion. If you haven't already, definitely give my full debrief on the Cornell Tech interview a read: https://gmatclub.com/forum/calling-all- ... l#p1803860

Good luck to you on Friday!

Fellow forever students,

Submitted round 3 and just got a skype interview invite for early next week. Anyone know of the typical turnaround time from interview date to final decision?

Thanks for all the contributions to this page! it's been incredibly helpful going through this process.

Hey there doctrepreneur

I also submitted in R3 and have completed my interview. I think the turnaround times are faster given the time of year, I'd be expecting a final decision within 1.5-2 weeks after the interview.

Idk if this is the right place, but what appears to be the average months of experience for this program? I'll only have 36 at application, but this program seems right up my alley.

To be honest ucdboy, it's quite a range of WE in the class. There are people with less than that and people with 3x as much. I would definitely encourage you to apply if you think it's a fit, since that (anecdotally at least) seems to be one of the most important factors.

— and yes, definitely the right place to post about this sort of thing :)

Very cool, thank you!

Were you able to get into contact with people who had done the program before? Were they impressed? Like a lot of people looking into the program, I really want to move from my engineering role to a PM role, but the career page on the site is vague at best.

Hi max6387, in my experience, it's not guaranteed that you'll have to go through the background check. At some schools, everyone goes through a background check, and at others, there is no background check. I also know at other schools this is sometimes done with random samples of admitted students or people whose profiles merit extra checking, for whatever reason. Since we definitely have to agree to a background check at Cornell Tech, this may be the case. But in general, telling everyone to expect a background check is a deterrent and a warning not to lie on your application, since you never know if you'll be selected for a background check.

Hope that helps!

I stand corrected max6387...we received an email today about the background check.

Hi Guys

I am a round two wait-listed candidate for the Cornell Tech MBA. I was hoping to gain some insights into the CT wait-list process from the people who were in the same boat as me. Looking forward to hearing any suggestions that you guys might have (Please PM me).

Thank you!

DS

I am in the same boat, R3 waitlisted and haven't heard back yet. I guess as CAVU mentioned earlier, its too late now. My mind says its over, but my heart is still waiting for a miracle to happen.

Thanks,

I second this!

I was waitlisted in R3, will be holding on until the very end on this and would really appreciate any advice for the waitlist!

Hi everyone!

I too am a waitlisted candidate in R2. I emailed the admissions team after getting waitlisted to get some insights and never got a reply. I think it's over now. :(

Does anyone know the approximate dates of the iTrek dealio? Does that come out of the winter break, or is it somewhere within the spring semester?
