My application status still shows "Under review" , does the admissions explicitly say "rejected" if the candidate is rejected or maintains "Under review"?

Well, the decision notification for 1 Y MBA program (for application in the Nov round) is Jan 10th and I haven't heard yet.

What should I make of it?


I submitted my application on Nov 15 and got my invite on Dec 15. So, I believe you should contact the Cornell Admissions team for further info. IMO, they should snot be that much late in making interview decisions.

Sure.

Was interviewed by an ADCOM. Traditional questions.
Tell me about your self
Why MBA
Why Cornell
Strengths and Weakness
Goals
Some questions related to resume and Sports.
Backup plan
Any questions for me.

It was actually more of a healthy conversation than an interview.

Best of luck!

I was interviewed on 19th January. Overall the interview was conversational and friendly. Below are the questions asked:

1. Take me through your resume : Spend around 5 minutes on this.
2. What are your long-term and short-term goals? What is your plan B in case you don't get a job in the United States?
3. Why do you want an MBA?
4. Why Cornell Johnson MBA?
5. Have you looked into the 1 year tech MBA that Cornell offers in New York City? (Was specific to my profile as I belong to technology/product management)
6. What is your leadership style? Explain with an example.
7. Do you have connections within the technology industry (in India and United States)
8. Questions for the interviewer.

The overall interview lasted about 30 minutes. I asked the interviewer some questions - that lasted about 10 minutes.

I would say that the because if the new H1-B policies and the government, the interviewer wanted to assess my goals and whether I have connections within the technology industry that would help me land a gig with relative ease after my MBA.

My only advice : Be genuine. Be yourself.

I'm a Round 2 applicant.

Thanks for the insight. Were you a R3 or R2 applicant?
