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.


HI
Were you admitted? How much time it takes for Cornell Admissions tea to come back with a decision after interview? It has been a week for me.... no news yet :(

Hi, did any Indian applicant from R3 receive interview invites?
Do anyone know the probable dates for sending the invites ?

Congratulations to you as well.

Is there any admit portal you get access to, which gives you visibility on how many people have been admitted so far to the program?

Hi qwertyuiopme,

I'm not aware of any portal like that.

To those who have been admitted,

Did you guys receive any scholarship decision as well. How do I know about how much, if any, scholarship I am getting from Cornell?

I talked to th eadmissions officer and she informed that "if there is any scholarship granted, it would be mentioned on your offer." In other words, if not, then get ready for $100,000 out of pocket :o

I just spoke to a couple of current students.

Not happy with the job placement scenario. Especially for international candidates. :( :( :(

Well, they told me that most companies are not considering students with Visa requirements. For AMBA program, only 15-20% have peen placed till now , and that includes US citizens.
However, the Just in time placements are yet to begin, but Amazon/MSFT/MBB have already recruited.

Even the 2 year students are facing issues with Visa requirements.

This is the case for this year only. Basically, there has been a decline in number of on campus job offers for international students with visa requirements.
