Linda Abraham (Mar 25, 2009 12:01:23 PM)
Hello. My name is Linda Abraham. I am the founder of Accepted.com and the moderator of today’s chat.

I also want to welcome the following Johnson Admissions Team members:
- Randall Sawyer - Director of Admissions
- Ann Richards - Associate Director of Admissions and Director of Financial Aid
- Laurie Shunney - Admissions Service Representative
- Christine Sneva - Assistant Director of Admissions and Financial Aid
Thanks to everyone for joining.
RandallSawyerCornell (Mar 25, 2009 12:02:20 PM)
Thank you Linda, it's great to be here!
Linda Abraham (Mar 25, 2009 12:03:29 PM)
Randall, do you want to know about new developments in applicants’ lives?
Linda Abraham (Mar 25, 2009 12:03:37 PM)
Ann, when will the waitlist be reviewed?
RandallSawyerCornell (Mar 25, 2009 12:03:58 PM)
Yes--it is important to provide us with updates both personally and professionally.
Manpreet Singh (Mar 25, 2009 12:03:59 PM)
Christine: Does the admissions office reviews waitlisted applicants on a rolling basis?
ChristineSnevaCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:04:25 PM)
Manpreet, we review waitlist candidates on an on going basis,-in fact, we review the applications every few days!
Manpreet Singh (Mar 25, 2009 12:04:27 PM)
Randall: I also sent a self assessment essay and arranged for an additional recommendation letter. Is there any way I can know when the admissions office has reviewed the documents?
AnnRichardsCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:04:44 PM)
Manpreet, we review the waitlist on an ongoing basis - usually in conjunction with our weekly enrollment reports.
Anuj Jain (Mar 25, 2009 12:04:51 PM)
Christine: I am a waitlisted candidate and just wanted to check with you if it’s possible to get a final decision a little sooner. There are a few other career options (including an internal transfer to Australia and an entrepreneurship opportunity) that I am exploring, which I need to respond to within a month or so. Attending Cornell this fall continues to top my priority list, hence the request. Many thanks!
RandallSawyerCornell (Mar 25, 2009 12:05:18 PM)
Hi Manpreet--we add your documents to your file and make a note that updates have been added, so when the committee reviews files, they see the notes.
Go Big Red (Mar 25, 2009 12:05:35 PM)
Randall: I have recently read the previous years’ transcripts and was wondering if the size of this year’s pool is consistent with the past.
Ashish (Mar 25, 2009 12:05:44 PM)
Ann: What is the expected timeline to hear back about the waiting list?
RandallSawyerCornell (Mar 25, 2009 12:06:13 PM)
Hi Big Red--thanks for joining us today--the pool is consistent with past years--it is strong and robust.
vishal (Mar 25, 2009 12:06:19 PM)
Laurie: Hi, do you have any rankings in the waitlist?
JR (Mar 25, 2009 12:06:38 PM)
Randall: I know schools do not disclose the number of applicants placed on the waitlist, but can you give a general idea of how the process works and what has happened in past years?
AnnRichardsCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:06:41 PM)
Ashish, It's likely that we'll have a better picture after the April 13 deposit deadline.
ChristineSnevaCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:06:45 PM)
Anuj, we always like to see positive job advancement. Send me an email about your opportunity and our committee will discuss your file. We can't promise an early decision, but we do review any file that has an update.
LaurieShunneyCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:06:46 PM)
Hi Vishal! We do not rank the wait list.
2011shoein (Mar 25, 2009 12:06:54 PM)
Ann: How frequently should we send updates?
Abe M. (Mar 25, 2009 12:07:09 PM)
Christine: What type of additional recommendations are you looking for?
MBA (Mar 25, 2009 12:07:22 PM)
Laurie: How many people were selected from the waitlist last year?
LaurieShunneyCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:07:47 PM)
MBA, we accepted many students from the wait list last year.
AnnRichardsCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:07:53 PM)
Shoein, this is tough, because you want to keep us informed, but you don't want to be a pest. I would encourage you to send updates when you have some concrete information to convey, roughly about once a month.
chala (Mar 25, 2009 12:07:54 PM)
Laurie: Hello, I'm a waitlist from Round 1. Do the rounds matter? Or are all waitlisted candidates considered at the same time?
RandallSawyerCornell (Mar 25, 2009 12:07:59 PM)
Certainly JR--the committee meets every Tuesday and Thursday to review round applicants and at that time we review waitlist candidates to see if there are any we want to move. We have already reviewed many this year within each round and some have been taken off the waitlist.
namuead (Mar 25, 2009 12:08:02 PM)
Ann: How many seats are available for waitlisted candidates?
sumithshah (Mar 25, 2009 12:08:14 PM)
Randall: Can the admission committee throw some light onto the wait list feedback process? I understand from the posts on BW forum that Jonson has a feedback process to help waitlisted students improve their profile and report back to the admissions committee.
ChristineSnevaCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:08:22 PM)
Abe, interesting question - I would say pick someone that can speak on behalf of a potential weakness. Primarily, someone who can address areas that are different from your former recommendations.
LaurieShunneyCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:08:23 PM)
Chala, no, rounds do not matter when we consider the waitlist. We consider applicants from all rounds as we review the waitlist.
AnnRichardsCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:09:14 PM)
Naumuead, the number of seats available depend on the yield of the offers we've already made. If you yield is strong, we'll have less seats available.
ASJ (Mar 25, 2009 12:09:19 PM)
Ann: Does being wait-listed make it unlikely that I will be considered for scholarships, such as the Park Fellows Program?
Ankur Rakshit (Mar 25, 2009 12:09:43 PM)
Christine: What is the last possible date we can safely assume as the deadline for the waitlisted candidates?
AnnRichardsCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:10:18 PM)
ASJ, it's unlikely that you would be considered for the Park, but we may be in a position to offer you a scholarship. Once again, it depends on our yield.
RandallSawyerCornell (Mar 25, 2009 12:10:20 PM)
SumitShah--the waitlist feedback process actually starts with you comparing yourself to our class from last year and identifying weaknesses that you might have and how you are working on them. Once you have sent us an email identifying this information, we take your file to the committee and review it to see if we will invite you to have a feedback session with us.
ChristineSnevaCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:10:27 PM)
Ankur, we will review candidates until our class is set - which means we will be looking at the waitlist throughout the summer.
Aaron (Mar 25, 2009 12:10:36 PM)
Ann: What is the likelihood of students accepted off of the waitlist receiving scholarship aid (non-loan) and is there an average $ amount?
GautamAgarwal (Mar 25, 2009 12:10:50 PM)
Hi Christine: I would like to submit an additional recommendation letter; can you please tell us the process for doing so?
Linda Abraham (Mar 25, 2009 12:11:25 PM)
Randall, does the lack of an invitation for feedback indicate a lack of interest on your part?
ChristineSnevaCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:11:29 PM)
Gautam, you can send any additional documentation to firstname.lastname@example.org or through your application processor.
vishal (Mar 25, 2009 12:11:46 PM)
Christine: Have any of the Round 1 waitlist students been offered admission?
AnnRichardsCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:11:47 PM)
Aaron, very few students taken off the waitlist receive scholarship, but it depends on our yield and the overall amount of scholarship funding we have available. Keep in mind that only 1/3 of our students receive scholarship support.
ChristineSnevaCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:12:25 PM)
Yes Vishal, we have been reviewing waitlisted candidates from round 1 and round 2 as we continue to close round 3.
Yna (Mar 25, 2009 12:12:47 PM)
Christine: Are you able to anticipate the number of offers now?
ChristineSnevaCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:13:22 PM)
Yna, at this point we cannot anticipate until we hear back from our round 3 offers which is April 14th.
RandallSawyerCornell (Mar 25, 2009 12:13:36 PM)
Linda, we have limited time for waitlist feedback this year, so we are being more selective. I think each candidate needs to self assess and then ask for feedback. We'll try and accommodate every request, but if the candidate has done little to self assess, then they are not working to earn the feedback and may not deserve it as such.
wagnermc (Mar 25, 2009 12:13:36 PM)
Ann: If we do not have a strong financial background, would it be beneficial to our application to enroll in an accounting class of finance?
Manpreet Singh (Mar 25, 2009 12:13:38 PM)
Randall, Can we get an estimate from last year's data how many waitlisted applicants get accepted?
namuead (Mar 25, 2009 12:14:32 PM)
Christine: Is there a specific place in the online application where we can post a new essay?
Edgar (Mar 25, 2009 12:14:46 PM)
Laurie: For folks that might have to take a course or retake the GMAT, what is the unofficial or official deadline?
AnnRichardsCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:14:48 PM)
Wagnermc, it would be helpful for those without strong financial or quantitative backgrounds to take a refresher course. We often recommend MBAMath to students who want to strengthen their math skills.
RandallSawyerCornell (Mar 25, 2009 12:14:55 PM)
Manpreet--about 10% of the class came off the waitlist last year and this year we have already offered several spots to waitlist candidates.
KarimHooda (Mar 25, 2009 12:15:08 PM)
Randall, given that this year's yield maybe be higher than in years past, is there a chance that very few or no applicants will be taken off of the waitlist compared to the past?
Buddhaman (Mar 25, 2009 12:15:18 PM)
Ann: Do wait listed applicants from the first round have the first preference of being admitted versus applicants from 2nd or 3rd rounds?
ChristineSnevaCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:15:23 PM)
Namuead, if you would like to post a new essay, I would recommend sending it to email@example.com. This way, you know we received it and it will go directly in your file for another review.
2011shoein (Mar 25, 2009 12:15:28 PM)
Christine: Will there be a large group of applicants taken off the wait list in April right after the Round 3 deposit date?
LaurieShunneyCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:16:11 PM)
Hello Edgar! We suggest taking the GMAT when you feel best prepared. We will consider any updates regarding your GMAT score as they occur. Keep us informed of your plans.
ChristineSnevaCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:16:28 PM)
Shoein, at this point, we don't know. It depends on the yield we see from round 3. If it is consistent with previous years, we've seen a steady yield from round 3.
AnnRichardsCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:16:30 PM)
Buddhaman, all students on the waitlist are reviewed when space is available. The only advantage that round 1 students have is that they may have a longer amount of time to strengthen their application.
1waits (Mar 25, 2009 12:16:42 PM)
Ann: will there be sufficient time for all those admitted from a waitlist to process their paperwork, loans, visa etc?
Amit_Dingare (Mar 25, 2009 12:17:09 PM)
Christine, I have sent my waitlist update to firstname.lastname@example.org, but have not received any confirmation. I could not get in touch with Jason, my Johnson contact person. Is there anyone else I can get in touch with?
LaurieShunneyCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:17:20 PM)
Ron - Additional recommenders may send letters directly to the Admissions Representative responsible for your file.
RandallSawyerCornell (Mar 25, 2009 12:17:23 PM)
Hi Karim--thanks for joining us today--I really cannot estimate chances this year as it is different than what we have seen in the past--it is true that our yield on offers is very high, but only time will tell what happens this summer as yields move.
Ankur Rakshit (Mar 25, 2009 12:17:24 PM)
Laurie: Thanks for making yourself available to us. Is there a specific format in which we can send a recommendation to you? I ask because the online application had a specific format/place for recommendations, but it seems to be frozen now.
Jordan-O (Mar 25, 2009 12:17:25 PM)
Randall, How frequently would you like us to provide you personal/professional updates? Is an email or phone call more appropriate?
ChristineSnevaCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:17:45 PM)
Amit, we don't confirm that we have received your email and placed any updated information in your file.
AnnRichardsCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:18:01 PM)
1waits, we will have time to process financial aid for those taken from the waitlist. Even those students offered admission close to the start of orientation can have their financial aid complete by the University registration period.
Manpreet Singh (Mar 25, 2009 12:18:11 PM)
Thanks Christine. I am an international applicant. Did the yield for international applicants go down due to the loans and economy? Will the international waitlisted candidates get priority or will those seats be moved to the domestic pool?
LaurieShunneyCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:18:12 PM)
Ankur - You may obtain a PDF of the form and send this to additional recommenders.
AnnikaDubrall (Mar 25, 2009 12:18:27 PM)
Ann: Hello - would you suggest we assemble all our supplemental material and submit at once - or is it okay to submit supplemental material in pieces?
RandallSawyerCornell (Mar 25, 2009 12:18:29 PM)
Hi Jordon, you can provide updates when they occur and an email is best--phone calls are difficult at this time as we are still working through Round 3, Round Four and waitlist.
Abe M. (Mar 25, 2009 12:18:35 PM)
Randall, I am deeply enthusiastic about pursuing a Cornell MBA and was wondering what type of additional recommendations you are looking for? Personal? Professional?
ChristineSnevaCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:18:48 PM)
Manpreet, the international loan issue has not impacted the yield on our admitted international students.
Ashish Agarwal (Mar 25, 2009 12:18:50 PM)
Laurie: I have been waitlisted at The Johnson School and I have requested for a feedback session, but have not received a confirmation mail. Shall I request the session again?
namuead (Mar 25, 2009 12:19:05 PM)
Christine: Is the additional recommendation supposed to be provided in the normal format or can it be a simple essay from the recommender?
Go Big Red (Mar 25, 2009 12:19:11 PM)
Thanks Randall, I appreciate your dedication to making the application process as transparent as possible.
Anuj Jain (Mar 25, 2009 12:19:15 PM)
Thanks for the response Christine, I will follow up with you.
AnnRichardsCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:19:54 PM)
AnnikaDubrall, I would encourage you to space it out a little. This will allow you to remain in contact with us and demonstrate your continued interest in gaining a seat in the class.
RandallSawyerCornell (Mar 25, 2009 12:20:03 PM)
Hi Abe--good to hear from you-- I believe we met when you were here for your interview. Additional recommendations should come from someone who can speak about you differently than your prior two recommendations.
ChristineSnevaCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:20:10 PM)
Namuead, it's up to you - there is no standard for you to submit supplemental information. I would consider the best way one where you can address weaknesses and show the value you would add to The Johnson School.
JSM2009 (Mar 25, 2009 12:20:12 PM)
Good afternoon Randall. Can we send more than one additional letter of recommendation or is this frowned upon?
LaurieShunneyCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:20:17 PM)
Ashish - Feel free to contact the Admissions Representative managing your file about a feedback session. We will then review the documents you submit and schedule a session (as time permits) if you will benefit from additional feedback.
blawton (Mar 25, 2009 12:20:35 PM)
Ann: Good afternoon and thank you for hosting this chat. I wanted to know if there was any weight to the timeliness of submitting professional/personal updates. I have a good idea of what I want to write and want to get it in ASAP, but also think waiting for a feedback session will make my response more appropriate. Any thoughts? Thank you.
ChristineSnevaCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:20:38 PM)
Great - thanks Anuj!
AnnRichardsCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:20:40 PM)
Thanks, Go Big Red!
RandallSawyerCornell (Mar 25, 2009 12:20:58 PM)
JSM2009--I would think that one additional letter is fine--two is ok, but should stop there.
vishal (Mar 25, 2009 12:20:58 PM)
Christine: Hi, I had applied in round 1 and have been constantly updating the admission committee with various updates. I was told that the waitlist decision would come in the end of May. Does this mean that until that date, none of the waitlisted students have been picked off the waitlist?
john in CA (Mar 25, 2009 12:21:25 PM)
Randall: Thank you all for your time! I know that being proactive and showing interest is what helps us stand out. Do you prefer that we email direct contacts, call, or email the general email@example.com? Will one method be more effective than the others?
Abe M. (Mar 25, 2009 12:21:38 PM)
Laurie: Is there a deadline for being accepted once you are on the waitlist?
olivares (Mar 25, 2009 12:21:48 PM)
Ann: You mentioned you would have a better idea of how many waitlist applicants you will accept around April 13th. If we don't get a call by April 20th, does that mean that we don't have a chance? Also, does it matter that I'm waitlisted since round 1? Thanks!
AnnRichardsCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:22:09 PM)
Blawton, I would start by sending us a brief update, then follow up with updates as they occur. If you have a feedback session and new recommendations are suggested, you can follow up with supplemental information.
ChristineSnevaCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:22:18 PM)
Vishal, no, it does not - we have been reviewing the waitlist consistently. There is a second deposit due June 2nd, after which we may see some movement, but there is no guarantee when a student may come off the waitlist.
Aki23 (Mar 25, 2009 12:22:21 PM)
Ann: Does the Admission Committee consider it positive when a candidate has received admission in some other B-School and the information is shared with the committee to let you know he is waiting to be with your school?
RandallSawyerCornell (Mar 25, 2009 12:22:21 PM)
John in CA, if you have built a relationship with your file manager, send it to them and cc Ann, Christine, Laurie or me if you know us as well.
Ashish Agarwal (Mar 25, 2009 12:22:28 PM)
Randall: What are key factors that admission committee looks for in a waitlisted candidate?
LaurieShunneyCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:22:32 PM)
Abe - We continue reviewing the wait list on a rolling basis until the first day of orientation.
Gustavo Costanzi Perez (Mar 25, 2009 12:22:36 PM)
Christine: Thanks for this opportunity. What is the ratio between accepted candidates and waitlisted candidates? Historically, what is the percentage of accepted candidates that do not join the school?
ChristineSnevaCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:23:20 PM)
Hi Gustavo, our yield has been 70% of our offers.
ctylerwilliams (Mar 25, 2009 12:23:41 PM)
Hi Christine: How many people have been taken off the waitlist to date? Are their other dates besides April 13th that will yield more opportunities for selection?
chala (Mar 25, 2009 12:23:46 PM)
Laurie, I've requested a feedback session in each communication I sent the school since December. When do you notify candidates that they can get a feedback session?
LaurieShunneyCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:23:55 PM)
Aki23 - Please share any offers of admission with us. We encourage you to share all relevant updates with the committee via email.
AnnRichardsCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:24:19 PM)
Olivares, we maintain a waitlist through the summer and until the start of orientation. You may want to identify a date that is the last possible date that you can realistically accept an offer of admission from us. We are aware that international students need time to secure a visa, so we may remove them from the waitlist at some point during the summer.
Vivek (Mar 25, 2009 12:24:30 PM)
Ann - Due to a salary and promotions freeze at my organization, I would not be able to demonstrate professional growth in my position since I submitted the application. Would lack of an update in terms of professional growth since the application was submitted be viewed negatively ?
RandallSawyerCornell (Mar 25, 2009 12:24:37 PM)
Hi Ashish, we want to see commitment and passion to/for the Johnson School; we want to see that you have self assessed your application and are working proactively on improving your weaknesses and that you continue to achieve high at work.
Ashish Agarwal (Mar 25, 2009 12:24:41 PM)
Randall: Does the additional recommendation need to be professional or even a personal recommendation is fine?
Amit_Dingare (Mar 25, 2009 12:25:08 PM)
Laurie: I am interested in obtaining feedback and I am currently working on my self assessment essay. Is there a deadline by which I need to send this essay to admissions committee?
LaurieShunneyCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:25:15 PM)
Chala - We will continue reviewing files in committee for feedback eligibility. We consider your prior self-assessment and whether you will benefit from additional feedback.
ChristineSnevaCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:25:25 PM)
Hi Tyler! Good to see you on here. At this point, we don't know how many (a handful) we have taken of the waitlist since it is on a rolling basis. I would say that because June 2nd is another deposit date, it could be another time when we would see some movement.
RandallSawyerCornell (Mar 25, 2009 12:25:28 PM)
Hi Ashish, personal recommendations are fine if they can shed light on issues not covered in prior recommendations.
Ashish (Mar 25, 2009 12:25:44 PM)
Randall: What is the best advice you can offer to someone on the wait list who is also considering other offers?
AnnRichardsCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:26:02 PM)
Vivek, you don't need a salary increase or promotion to demonstrate professional growth - have you taken on new projects, or mentored others in your company?
Yna (Mar 25, 2009 12:26:03 PM)
Laurie: By when should I make a deposit if admitted? Thanks!
LaurieShunneyCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:26:13 PM)
Amit - I encourage you to dedicate time to your self-reflection and submit your essay when you feel it represents your ideas and plans.
h (Mar 25, 2009 12:26:18 PM)
Ann: Will wait listed candidates be compared with the Round 4 candidates in the pool? Or, is there a completely separate process for wait listed candidates?
R1WL (Mar 25, 2009 12:26:39 PM)
Christine - does the candidate's location have any input on when the decision is released? I will be moving from the Midwest, and to move after a last minute summer decision will be challenging.
LaurieShunneyCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:26:52 PM)
Yna - We require a deposit immediately for candidates receiving offers of admission from the wait list.
KarimHooda (Mar 25, 2009 12:26:56 PM)
Laurie: A couple of items have been sent in on my behalf. Who is the best person to contact to make sure everything has been received?
AnnRichardsCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:27:17 PM)
H - We will continue to review our waitlist pool with the candidates remaining in the application pool for a spot in the class.
LaurieShunneyCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:27:20 PM)
Karim, you may contact the Admissions Service Representative handling your file.
ChristineSnevaCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:27:47 PM)
No R1WL, the candidate's location does not depend on when we would get back to them. You bring up an important point though - we do need to be updated on any new address, phone numbers, etc.
RandallSawyerCornell (Mar 25, 2009 12:27:52 PM)
Ashish, share with us the information from other schools and ask that your file be reconsidered in light of that you need to decide at the other schools. Be prepared to talk with us about those schools and how they compare to us and if we take you off the waitlist, be prepared to deposit when we call you.
namuead (Mar 25, 2009 12:27:54 PM)
Laurie: Approximately how many candidates have been taken off the waitlist until now?
sumithshah (Mar 25, 2009 12:28:09 PM)
Randall: I had addressed a potential weakness in my application during my interview. I am applying for my MBA after 3 years of work experience, however, I have had solid entrepreneurship experience (started a firm back when I was in college, raised funds ~ 50,000 USD and have brought the company to a valuation of 300,000 USD). Considering the average work experience of most students is about 5 years, do you think this is the potential weakness in my application? If yes, how do you suggest I work on it to improve my chances for the class of 2011?
2011shoein (Mar 25, 2009 12:28:29 PM)
Ann: Does showing an ability to finance the MBA improve our chances of getting off the wait list?
LaurieShunneyCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:28:37 PM)
Namuead, we provided offers of admission for a handful of applicants on the wait list this year.
RandallSawyerCornell (Mar 25, 2009 12:29:46 PM)
Sumit, we look at candidates with no work experience and with more than ten years experience, so we are not concerned about 3 years work experience.
AnnRichardsCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:30:00 PM)
2011, no, not really. But because we don't offer deferrals to students (except for medical reasons) you should be prepared to cover your costs.
chala (Mar 25, 2009 12:30:18 PM)
Laurie, can you tell us how many students are on the waitlist for this year?
LaurieShunneyCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:31:22 PM)
Chala - We kept a robust and strong wait list. We prefer not to discuss the exact number since the wait list changes on a rolling basis. The pool is about the same as last year.
R1WL (Mar 25, 2009 12:31:24 PM)
Ann: I already sent a request for feedback in December. Is there any further follow up I need to do to ensure I get the 15 minute session?
GautamAgarwal (Mar 25, 2009 12:31:30 PM)
Thanks Christine. Just to clarify, should I ask the recommender to email the recommendation form directly to firstname.lastname@example.org?
anju (Mar 25, 2009 12:31:45 PM)
Randall: What is the essay topic for waitlist or is it a general essay to strengthen and provide updates?
ChristineSnevaCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:32:03 PM)
Yes that is fine Gautam.
RandallSawyerCornell (Mar 25, 2009 12:32:18 PM)
Anju, no essay required, just self assess based on the email we sent you and indicate what you are doing to address your weaknesses.
AnnRichardsCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:32:25 PM)
R1wl, what we'd like to see is your updates, but we won't be able to provide individual feedback for several more weeks.
acampos (Mar 25, 2009 12:32:31 PM)
Christine: Hello there, as an international student, when can I expect to be advised of a final decision (taking into account that I need time to make plans for me and my family)?
Ashish Agarwal (Mar 25, 2009 12:32:38 PM)
Ann, I have already submitted my professional update and letter of recommendation. How do I get to know the potential weakness in my application?
Ashish (Mar 25, 2009 12:33:06 PM)
Randall: What are some of the biggest mistakes someone on the wait list can make?
AnnRichardsCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:33:58 PM)
Ashish, I would encourage you do a self assessment based on the e-mail we sent earlier.
ChristineSnevaCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:34:12 PM)
Acampos, we understand this - but you need to make that decision as soon as possible. If there is a date that you must hear by, let us know. But know that we may not be prepared to take anyone off the waitlist at that time.
acampos (Mar 25, 2009 12:34:26 PM)
Ann: I’ve improved my application by raising my GMAT score from 610 to 660 (including an improvement in the math section from a rough score of 42 to 45) and have asked another person to send an extra letter of recommendation. I’ve also tried to let the school know of my commitment through mails and contacting alumni and students. What is your point of view on correspondence through mail? Do you appreciate constant communication showing commitment or should I just wait for your final decision?
Ankur Rakshit (Mar 25, 2009 12:34:28 PM)
Christine: There seems to be some confusion regarding where/email address/mail address/contact person the waitlisted candidates are supposed to contact. Would it be the interviewer for each candidate, or the admissions representative i.e. the person who fixed our interview the first time or the general email id, email@example.com as mentioned by you? Could you also throw some light on where exactly and how to send across an additional recommendation?
LaurieShunneyCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:35:10 PM)
Ron - Recommenders can send a free-form essay, but you may also obtain a PDF of our recommendation form so they may address the topics required in previously submitted recommendations. Recommendations are most beneficial when they address a weakness or provide a new perspective.
Ashish Agarwal (Mar 25, 2009 12:35:23 PM)
Thanks Laurie. I will follow up with my admissions representative.
AnnRichardsCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:35:39 PM)
Acampos, an e-mail is much easier to document and place in your application file than to document a phone call.
ChristineSnevaCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:35:40 PM)
Ankur, please send any information to firstname.lastname@example.org OR your admissions representative. The best way to do this is through email.
AnnRichardsCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:36:18 PM)
Acampos, keep up the good work, you have continued to demonstrate your commitment and enthusiasm for the school.
LaurieShunneyCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:36:22 PM)
Ankur, for surnames beginning with A-H: Contact Jason Atkins. Surnames beginning with I-O: Cheryl Kot, and P-Z: contact Clarence Welch.
sumithshah (Mar 25, 2009 12:36:45 PM)
Ann: Is Cornell worried about the financial status of its international applicants - considering that the loan scenario is not great, a lot of admission offers might not turn into matriculation? If yes, then does providing a "proof of finance" help?
RandallSawyerCornell (Mar 25, 2009 12:36:54 PM)
Hi Ashish, good question. Common mistakes include not taking any steps to improve your application, not following suggestions from your interview on how to be a stronger candidate, continually calling or emailing us to let us know that you are interested in coming off the waitlist--once every couple of weeks is fine. And finally, show us the passion you have for us!
chala (Mar 25, 2009 12:36:58 PM)
Christine: If a candidate doesn't see any apparent weaknesses (say, GMAT, GPA etc are all within range of current students), what can the candidate do to strengthen the application?
anju (Mar 25, 2009 12:37:08 PM)
Randall, are there many AMBA waitlisted applicants or is that list shorter than regular MBA program waitlist? Or are they all lumped into one list?
ChristineSnevaCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:37:10 PM)
Chala, it depends on what you mean by "range of current students." If you are within range, that may not be enough to look competitive in our current pool.
Abe M. (Mar 25, 2009 12:37:59 PM)
Randall, I enjoyed meeting you during my visit and greatly appreciate you taking the time to organize this chat!
AnnRichardsCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:38:10 PM)
Sumithshah, the lack of a loan program hasn't had a substantial impact on our international yield of international students. We do expect to announce the confirmation of a loan for our international students soon.
Amit_Dingare (Mar 25, 2009 12:38:30 PM)
Christine: Would updating Johnson adcoms on the backup career plan be beneficial?
chala (Mar 25, 2009 12:39:05 PM)
Laurie: Do you notify candidates if they will not be getting a feedback session?
AnnRichardsCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:39:45 PM)
JSM2009, we will thin the waitlist after the June deposit. For example, it's likely that many international students wouldn't be able to secure a visa after the middle of June.
R1WL (Mar 25, 2009 12:39:48 PM)
Ann: If I make a visit to campus in April, would it be possible to meet with one of you?
RandallSawyerCornell (Mar 25, 2009 12:39:49 PM)
Hi Anju, great question! Our numbers for the AMBA program are strong but there are many fewer AMBA waitlist people than for the two years program. If anyone on the two year waitlist has a Masters Degree in math or science and might be interested in our one year program, then please contact us as we would be interested in talking with you about the AMBA.
ChristineSnevaCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:39:55 PM)
Amit, that is fine - especially if it wasn't addressed in the interview, but remember to look at yourself holistically - what are the weaknesses? Where are potential weaknesses?
LaurieShunneyCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:40:11 PM)
Chala - We have not reviewed all of the wait listed candidates for feedback yet. We will review the entire wait list soon and send an update regarding eligibility.
anju (Mar 25, 2009 12:40:23 PM)
Laurie: For AMBA candidates who expect to matriculate in May, when will waitlisted applicants be informed? Will it also be in May or sooner?
AnnRichardsCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:40:44 PM)
R1WL, I'm sure one of us would be able to meet with you when you visit. Randall tries to say hello to everyone who visits.
ChristineSnevaCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:40:53 PM)
The yield has been higher this year - we have 70% on our offers this year compared to 55% last year.
Sam (Mar 25, 2009 12:41:19 PM)
Ann: I'm planning on taking a class in order to bolster my application - does it make any difference whether the class is taken at a traditional 4 year university, a community college, or a viable on-line class? Thanks for your time.
LaurieShunneyCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:41:21 PM)
Anju, We may admit AMBA candidates up until orientation for the AMBA program (mid-May).
sumithshah (Mar 25, 2009 12:41:30 PM)
Laurie: Is there a format / guideline for the self assessment process?
MBA (Mar 25, 2009 12:42:06 PM)
Christine: Due to close ties with the real estate industry, my company just laid off 20% of employees including me. While this is not something I'm looking to disclose...
anju (Mar 25, 2009 12:42:15 PM)
Randall, when I called my application manager, no details were provided for how to proceed with recommendations, updates, or any mention of feedback sessions. Should I still continue to contact application manager or send updates directly to you or Christine?
AnnRichardsCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:42:19 PM)
Sam, you can take a class anywhere, we like to see the initiative to improve your skills and of course, we'd like to see that you earned an "A" in the class!
Erica (Mar 25, 2009 12:42:57 PM)
Hi Randall: Is an additional recommendation mandatory? I believe another professional recommendation would not provide any new insightful information.
RandallSawyerCornell (Mar 25, 2009 12:43:48 PM)
Hi Anju--you should have received an email regarding self assessment and asking for waitlist feedback.
ChristineSnevaCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:43:59 PM)
MBA, we hope you are ok - getting laid off is a great opportunity for you to look into what you've learned, where you are going now, take the time to retake the GMAT and update us on this.
saurabh_arora (Mar 25, 2009 12:44:04 PM)
Randall: In your opinion, what is the best way to show passion in the next 3 months for the Johnson school?
namuead (Mar 25, 2009 12:44:19 PM)
Christine: My undergrad academics is the weak point in my application. Does Johnson school (or Cornell) offer any courses that I can undertake to demonstrate or strengthen my application?
AnnRichardsCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:44:32 PM)
Erica, an additional recommendation isn't necessary. Often, candidates can provide an additional viewpoint by asking for a recommendation from someone they have worked with previously or from a civic, volunteer or community activity.
GautamAgarwal (Mar 25, 2009 12:44:41 PM)
Thank you Christine!
RandallSawyerCornell (Mar 25, 2009 12:45:03 PM)
Hi Saurabh, great to hear from you! Send us a note and update us on your status at other schools and why ultimately this is the place for you.
AnnikaDubrall (Mar 25, 2009 12:45:05 PM)
Ann: Can interacting with current students improve our chances of getting off the waitlist? I have developed a strong rapport with some SGE folks. If someone was willing to speak up on my behalf - could that help?
anju (Mar 25, 2009 12:45:08 PM)
Randall, how is the best way to show professional development when someone has been laid of in March? I am hoping to matriculate in May to the AMBA program, which leaves very little time to take any professional classes, or gain advanced skill sets.
sumithshah (Mar 25, 2009 12:45:28 PM)
Laurie: Does Johnson have a preference for students who are motivated to seek a job at the end of the MBA program vs. students who are focused on joining a pre-existing business (family business)?
AnnRichardsCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:45:37 PM)
AnnikaDubrall, we value comments and feedback from our current students.
ChristineSnevaCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:46:13 PM)
Namuead, unfortunately, you cannot change your undergraduate grades. Look at why you suffered academically, how have you changed and what will be different in grad school? Have you thought about taking courses that would fill this weakness?
RandallSawyerCornell (Mar 25, 2009 12:46:16 PM)
Hi Anju, would you send me an email to discuss your situation directly after this chat?
Amit_Dingare (Mar 25, 2009 12:46:32 PM)
Christine: Have any of the international applicants been admitted from the waitlist yet?
ChristineSnevaCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:46:47 PM)
Amit, yes! Just admitted one yesterday!
LaurieShunneyCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:46:51 PM)
Sumith - We do not have a preference for those returning to family businesses or seeking other jobs post-MBA. We do consider whether candidate's goals seem realistic and achievable.
anju (Mar 25, 2009 12:46:53 PM)
Christine: All I received once waitlisted was a letter of decision, and a form to fax with general mentions of GMAT retake, recommendations, or professional progress. Is there a separate email from this and or feedback session? I would really appreciate clarification.
2011shoein (Mar 25, 2009 12:47:33 PM)
Ann: Would you say a peer evaluation has value as well? Someone who can attest to character or personal strengths not always seen by workplace superiors.
ChristineSnevaCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:47:42 PM)
Anju, every waitlisted candidate received an email - check your junkmail or inbox. If not, I am happy to resend this information to you.
KarimHooda (Mar 25, 2009 12:48:01 PM)
Cornell staff - Thanks for answering my questions today. I look forward to hearing from you soon!
ver2 (Mar 25, 2009 12:48:19 PM)
Christine: I have been accepted at two other highly rated programs. What is the most useful way to convey this for getting off the waitlist? If I send in a short email, what specific information should I include?
gabriel.tse (Mar 25, 2009 12:48:39 PM)
Ann - Thanks for helping answer some of these questions for us. I have been keeping track of this chat and am interested in the weakness assessment feedback. I would love to see an outsider's perspective on my weaknesses rather than my own. So to clarify - I would continue to perform a self-assessment and request for a feedback session? Or do I wait for a special invitation? Thanks!
AnnRichardsCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:48:42 PM)
2011shoein, we don't use peer evaluations as our primary recommenders, but as a supplemental recommendation it would be fine.
ChristineSnevaCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:49:13 PM)
Ver2, just send a short email to me with a copy of the offer letter with the scholarship you may (or may not) have received and we will review your file.
2011shoein (Mar 25, 2009 12:49:21 PM)
Randall: If my primary weakness is my undergrad GPA, but I've shown analytical strength through my GMAT scores, how else would you recommend I show competence for my quant skills?
chala (Mar 25, 2009 12:49:38 PM)
Thanks Christine. What can the candidate do then? My GMAT is 710. I am taking some courses. Would it help to retake the GMAT?
Kelly Campbell (Mar 25, 2009 12:49:47 PM)
Ann: The email we received stated that waitlist candidates may be offered a feedback session if they would benefit from one; if a candidate has done well in his/her self-assessment or taken appropriate steps to remedy weaknesses, is it possible to be admitted without receiving a feedback session?
Sam (Mar 25, 2009 12:49:49 PM)
Thanks very much, Ann.
AnnRichardsCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:49:57 PM)
Gabe, we'll be contacting waitlisted candidates later in the spring to conduct waitlist feedback.
namuead (Mar 25, 2009 12:50:05 PM)
Ann: Is opting for the AMBA instead of a 2 year program a risky proposition - because it would certainly show the candidate as indecisive and might backfire?
ChristineSnevaCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:50:20 PM)
Chala, it does not hurt to retake the GMAT. Our average is a 700 with a 710 median so you are on the average in terms of the GMAT.
anju (Mar 25, 2009 12:50:39 PM)
Randall, I have not received an email of self assessment or feedback information request just a waitlist decision letter, so I am worried.
AnnRichardsCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:51:03 PM)
Kelly, we may very well admit a student from the waitlist without a feedback session, if they show they have taken steps to strengthen their application and demonstrate interest in enrolling at the Johnson School.
RandallSawyerCornell (Mar 25, 2009 12:51:08 PM)
2011shoein, nice login name :)! Are you sure your weakness is quant? Is it poor presentation skills, lack of passion for the Johnson School or something else? By the way, I do not know who you are so I am not speaking directly to your weaknesses, but be sure you are honest with yourself.
Ashish Agarwal (Mar 25, 2009 12:51:13 PM)
Ann, thank you. I want to know if taking the GMAT again will help my application. Ideally who should be taking the GMAT again?
ChristineSnevaCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:51:19 PM)
Nameuead, not necessarily - many candidates discover the many advantages to our AMBA program as they consider other options that are not common like the 2-year.
Michael (Mar 25, 2009 12:51:40 PM)
Laurie: Can you please clarify what the criteria are for "feedback session eligibility"?
AnnRichardsCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:52:11 PM)
Ashish, students who fall below our median GMAT score, or who have a weak quantitative score should consider retaking the GMAT.
Vishal (Mar 25, 2009 12:52:37 PM)
Ann: Hi, my verbal score on the GMAT was less, hence I took the TOEFL and scored well. Would this be considered as an equivalent?
acampos (Mar 25, 2009 12:52:45 PM)
Thank you very much for your help! Hope to see you soon!
LaurieShunneyCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:52:51 PM)
Michael - We will only offer feedback sessions for candidates who truly demonstrate continued commitment to the school and thoughtful self-reflection. We will provide feedback if you will benefit from additional comments regarding opportunities for improvement.
Ankur Rakshit (Mar 25, 2009 12:52:59 PM)
Randall: same as Anju for me...no email for self assessment or feedback sessions, just a decision letter!!
sumithshah (Mar 25, 2009 12:53:24 PM)
Christine: If I realized that I had got "jittery" during my interview - which might have come off as "lack of presentation skills" - what would be the ideal way to address this?
AnnRichardsCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:53:35 PM)
Vishal, TOEFL score is considered when making an admissions decision, although it doesn't offset a weak GMAT.
gabriel.tse (Mar 25, 2009 12:54:01 PM)
Ann: Thanks for the help with that last question. However, I have one more question for you. I am currently enrolled in a language immersion class in Asia for the next 3 months to strengthen my background in dealing with international business. However, the class has just started and I will not have any transcripts to submit to the Johnson school within any reasonable time frame. Is there anything I can submit to Johnson to show my continued commitment to self improvement?
2011shoein (Mar 25, 2009 12:54:07 PM)
Randall: Yes my undergrad quant grades were not impressive - but I will make sure everything else is covered in my self assessment as well.
RandallSawyerCornell (Mar 25, 2009 12:54:36 PM)
We'll double check Ankur. Thanks for bringing it to our attention and I apologize if you have not received it. We'll get it to you asap! Please email Laurie Shunney directly to let her know you did not receive the email.
Sam (Mar 25, 2009 12:54:40 PM)
Christine: I'm well aware of what my weakness area is and how I should correct it. Will I look disinterested in the program if I don't request a feedback session? Thanks again.
AnnRichardsCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:54:48 PM)
Gabriel, you can have the instructor send in a statement of your progress as you move through the class.
Kelly Campbell (Mar 25, 2009 12:54:48 PM)
Hello Randall, my husband attended a top MBA program to which I also applied, but The Johnson School is my first choice, which I have tried to emphasize throughout my application and supplemental materials. Would explicitly stating that I prefer Johnson to program X be overkill? I want to make sure that there is no doubt in the AdCom's mind.
ChristineSnevaCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:54:54 PM)
Sumith, ideally, we would be able to sit down with you and meet with you again. I don't mean a re-interview, but if you truly think that your self-presentation skills were weak, the only way to remedy is possibly visiting again.
Vishal (Mar 25, 2009 12:55:45 PM)
Ann: Well I had waived taking the TOEFL, therefore I had not submitted the TOEFL earlier. Does it make sense to take it now?
RandallSawyerCornell (Mar 25, 2009 12:55:48 PM)
Thanks Shoein--let me know who you are later so we make sure to look at you for a waitlist review.
Real_Impact (Mar 25, 2009 12:55:52 PM)
Randall: Is there any benchmark to determine the difference between being passionate about the Johnson MBA and being pushy/irritating as far as updates are concerned?
gabriel.tse (Mar 25, 2009 12:55:55 PM)
Ann: Thanks! I will see if I can get my instructor to do that.
AnnRichardsCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:56:33 PM)
Vishal, if you're not required to submit a TOEFL, it doesn't really make sense to submit one. It may not help your application.
sumithshah (Mar 25, 2009 12:57:20 PM)
Christine - This is a follow-up to your answer - Unfortunately, I am an international student and would not be able to visit the US. However, I feel that my presentation skills are solid to attend Cornell - I've done 4 years of undergraduate studies at University of Southern California and have tons of public speaking experience. The fact that I was finally interviewing with my #1 choice got me nervous. Is there any way the admissions committee can help re-evaluate my position?
RandallSawyerCornell (Mar 25, 2009 12:57:54 PM)
Hi Real Impact, another great login name - shows a bit of passion to me! I think a note to one of us stating why us and no other business school shows passion. Calling all of us to get 15 minutes on the phone with us is over the top. I look forward to your email; you can send it to me.
Linda Abraham (Mar 25, 2009 12:57:56 PM)
Randall, are there any special considerations for re-applicants? Do you reviewers also look at last year's application when reviewing the application of a re-applicant? Do they just look at the reviewers' notes? Or do they ignore last year's application? Are waitlisted applicants in a better position if they need to reapply?
ChristineSnevaCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:58:11 PM)
Sumit, if you believe that this is a weakness, take the steps to improve this, like toastmasters for instance.
Ankur Rakshit (Mar 25, 2009 12:59:13 PM)
Thanks so much Randall! I will definitely follow up with Laurie, however this chat session has proved it's worth now!! I already know a lot more than I expect to!! :)
Real_Impact (Mar 25, 2009 12:59:20 PM)
Thanks Randall, I have been sending regular updates to my manager and have always gotten super prompt replies. Just waiting for the admit now to go make the real impact!
LaurieShunneyCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:59:32 PM)
I look forward to receiving your email Ankur!
COCA Student (Mar 25, 2009 12:59:33 PM)
Christine: I believe a weakness in my application was a low GMAT quantitative score. Other than re-taking the test, what can I do to demonstrate my quantitative abilities?
ChristineSnevaCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:59:39 PM)
COCA, after retaking the GMAT, look at taking MBA MATH online and/or taking a finance or statistic courses if you didn't in undergrad.
ChristineSnevaCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:59:40 PM)
Linda, re-applicants show a dedication and passion to The Johnson School and if they do plan to re-apply, they need to contact us over the summer and let us know. That is a great opportunity for candidates to review why they were on the WL or denied and show us improvement.
Mike (Mar 25, 2009 12:59:43 PM)
Ann: Did anyone ask how financial aid will work if you are admitted off the waitlist?
AnnRichardsCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 12:59:55 PM)
Mike, students admitted from the waitlist are considered for scholarship, some actually do receive scholarship awards, but keep in mind that only about 1/3 of our students receive scholarship awards. Waitlisted students often fund their educations with loans and their own resources.
1waits (Mar 25, 2009 12:59:58 PM)
Thanks everyone from 1waits = Mohan... I hope to utilize this entire opportunity - application, review, study, self-reflection etc - to get a better understanding of my career goals.
RandallSawyerCornell (Mar 25, 2009 1:00:08 PM)
Hi Linda, I would say between 5 and 10% of our applicants are re-applicants who CLEARLY indicate what steps they have taken to improve their application. We do look at last year's application as well. It is important to note that the re-applicant success rate is high!
Linda Abraham (Mar 25, 2009 1:00:22 PM)
Thank you again all for participating today. Special thanks to Randall, Ann, Christine, and Laurie for taking the time to virtually meet with you, provide this information, and make this process as understandable and painless as possible.
We look forward to seeing you at future chats, and here is a list of the upcoming scheduled chats:
Ross Waitlist March 30, 2009

Vivek (Mar 25, 2009 1:01:08 PM)
Thank you all from Cornell and fellow applicants for this chat session! Very helpful!
Go Big Red (Mar 25, 2009 1:01:13 PM)
Thank you once again; this chat is invaluable. I am currently finishing my self-assessment, obtaining an additional letter of recommendation and looking forward to a feedback session. Furthermore, I am excited to see Cornell send Northeastern home this weekend. Go Big Red!
Vishal (Mar 25, 2009 1:01:16 PM)
Thanks for this event. This was really informative!
RandallSawyerCornell (Mar 25, 2009 1:01:19 PM)

We enjoyed chatting with you!
2011shoein (Mar 25, 2009 1:01:27 PM)
Thank you Randall and the rest of the admissions committee. This was very helpful.
LaurieShunneyCORNELL (Mar 25, 2009 1:01:29 PM)
Keep in touch!
Mike (Mar 25, 2009 1:01:30 PM)
Ankur Rakshit (Mar 25, 2009 1:01:33 PM)
Thanks to all of you out there for making this happen...it's truly a very thoughtful initiative and has definitely helped all of us here to assuage our concerns to a great extent!! Looking forward to future chat sessions...go Johnson!!
