Congrats to everyone admitted to Johnson! 1st-year Johnson student here (c/o 2016)--I haven't logged on to the gmatclub since arriving in Ithaca in the fall, but I had to check in and see how everyone is doing. I'm happy to answer any questions and give you an honest opinion as you explore your options. And, whatever you do, try your damnedest to attend Destination Johnson in April! Nothing gives you clarity like actually meeting and spending time with your possible future classmates.

Thanks mbamyway !

By the way an interesting article on the new curriculum was just posted on P&Q. http://poetsandquants.com/2015/02/08/cornell-revamps-its-two-year-mba-program/

Can you add any input on how you think the new curriculum is fairing so far?

Also, when's a good time to start looking for roommates and housing? My plan was to wait until May/June after I've met a few more classmates to start nailing this down. And do any of the places in the Destination Johnson Housing Guide offer 10-month leases?

I have been none other than impressed with the new core curriculum at Johnson. Each course is integrated with and builds off others. Your accounting professor will know what you are learning in econ and will bring up topics that are relevant in that day's class. I can't personally compare the new curriculum to how it used to be (of course), but from what I hear from 2nd years, the new organization makes a lot more sense compared to how it was before.

There are still kinks* being worked out, but professors and administrators are extremely open to feedback from students. In some classes, written feedback is encouraged after every session, and each session starts with a response to the feedback gathered the session before. The level of sincerity and care the professors have at Cornell is so impressive. They really want you to learn. When I was looking at bschools, curriculum and professors were actually low priorities on my list (I was much more concerned with career services, placement, etc.), but I don't think Johnson faculty get the credit they deserve.

*One kink: An extremely popular critical thinking elective that was always overbooked in the past was worked into the core curriculum so every student got the chance to take it. Due to the discussion-focused nature of the class, each section had to be small and multiple professors ended up teaching the same course. Each student's experience with it varied depending on what professor they had. And with fuzzy topics like critical thinking, there was some disagreement about how grades were given. I'm guessing (I'm not sure about this!) that students in the past often took the course pass/fail as an elective and avoided the confusion of grades.

Re: housing--If you go to DJ, you'll have the chance to take a housing tour and visit the most popular buildings that MBA students live in. I think some students find their roommates at DJ or through your class's Facebook group. Some people sign leases at DJ, too, but that's certainly not necessary. I'm not sure about the 10-month lease; I'd guess that's not an option. There's certainly a lot of summer subletting that goes on in Ithaca, seeing it's a college town.

Once you’ve received an admit decision, how long until you are notified of whether or not you'll receive scholarship money?

For me I received a notification about a week after I was accepted that I was put onto a "scholarship waitlist". I'm assuming they reviewed scholarships awards after distributing acceptances.

I would guess the week after a decision deadline, they'll get together again to determine scholarship awards.
