Anyone here got scholarship from Johnson, and chose to attend a different school instead in this year?


I have also received a scholarship but will be attending elsewhere.


Congratulations on so many offers! I would love to know which school you are going. I would also appreciate if you care to elaborate on why you are not choosing Johnson despite getting a scholarship.


Sure thing, and thank you - I will be attending Yale SOM. I started the application process knowing that I might have to pay the full cost of attendance, and still decided that doing so would be worth the money long term. Luckily I don't have or anticipate any other major expenses (e.g. healthcare, aging parents, etc.) that would make paying off loans afterwards a major problem. So while the money would be nice, it's not a deciding factor.

I'm picking Yale over Cornell because its reputation seems to be rising, which I hope will look good to recruiters in the short term, and because of the university's brand name, which I hope will pay off in the long term.

To be clear - I LOVED Cornell when I visited. The culture there was tight-knit, the second year students were incredibly invested in helping the first years through recruiting, and the vast majority of other prospective students seemed like genuinely fun people. Also should point out that I gathered this from overnight-ing with one of the students - not just from the AdCom. I would have no hesitation attending.

Brave choice there by not taking the scholarship. But I find your assessment mostly accurate. Most of the people I meet tend to have "emotional" response to student loans, and put enormous emphasis on getting scholarship. At mid or late 20s, taking 100k loan is definitely not the end of the world. Anyways, my best wishes to you for your time in Yale. :)

Hi Guys,
I applied in Round 2 and I haven't heard anything yet. Do they post all the outcomes only on 1/10? Has anyone got invited for interviews?

I have gone through the round 1 process. From my experience, they mostly invite for interview earlier than the decision date, and either reject or wait list the rest of the candidates on the decision date. However, getting an interview invite on the decision date is not unheard of, but definitely rare.

Same boat mate. I would prefer for them to let the ding bells toll, instead of the stretched out wait.

I received an invite in Round 1 on the final decision date of Nov.15 and was accepted later with a partial scholarship so I wouldn't count yourself out yet.

Hey everyone,

My offer letter states that I am waitlisted for scholarships. Does anyone know whether this does actually get converted into a scholarship or not? Are there any steps that I can undertake to improve my chances of getting it?

Thank you!

In for IVY in Ithaca. TOC essay was a torture for me, seeing that I am creatively challenged.

Anyone else with some TOC essay horror story. Would love to know if some of you attempted the video format. Seemed pretty daunting.

I made a video for mine and I was pretty proud of it! Ended up getting about 1K views on youtube. I was accepted R1 w/ 50K. I was pretty stoked to see they allowed for a video format, I come across much better in person / video than in writing.

Haha it's a fairly quick find when you search for TOC essays on youtube. Might be worth putting it private if you don't want crazy doxxers finding out where you live etc!
