Hi, I applied in November round and received waitlist decision today. I am an international applicant.

Could you provide insights about my chances of getting admitted from waitlist? And what should I do now?

Thanks!


Well, in my opinion, chances are very good. The reason is that many people are withdrawing their offer from Cornell 1-year.
If you are an international candidate, and you want a work permit in USA, think twice before going for a 1-year program. Even the 2-year guys are struggling at the moment.



Thank you for your insights. I am worrying that if I cannot get off the waitlist by the end of March, I may not have enough time to deal with visa issues.
I am open to returning back to my home country after this 1-year program, so I am not concerned about work permit. However, I didn't explain clearly
in the application that I am willing to return to my home country, could this (currently the job prospect for international graduate in
US is not good) be the reason that I am waitlisted ?

My profile:
GPA: 3.0
GMAT:740
WE: 60 months, product development
Career goal: move into product management

Although I'm not 100% sure, but it could be a reason for your wait listing. These days, US business schools are inclining more towards the applicants with an existing work permit OR a sponsor for admissions.
If you want to return back to you home country, and if you are not from American subcontinent, why dont you apply to the European B-Schools? Some EU schools are much better than US 1-Year programs.

Thank you so much for your suggestion! I will certainly do some research about European B-Schools. I saw that you chose to decline Johnson's offer. Which school are you going to enroll in?

I'm not considering full time programs anymore, even when I'm admitted to 3 of the very best ones. The reason is solely the visa and job issue in USA. Many people from previous batched are still struggling for jobs.
I'm now applying to executive MBA programs such that I can continue working while getting an MBA degree. I know it will be not as respectful as full time MBA, but it is better than having no job and hefty loan on head.
