Johnson Admissions Team Opens Up
Spring is in the air here in Ithaca which means our admitted student weekend Destination Johnson (DJ) is just around the corner! Last week, we welcomed our new MBA cohort at Cornell Tech for their kick-off in NYC and now, we are ready for our major events planned in Ithaca.
We are getting feedback from applicants who are still making tweaks to their applications. Members of the admissions staff will work with you to be sure your questions are answered. If you would like to schedule a one-on-one Skype or small group Google Hangout with a member of the admissions committee, please contact Ellen Benson at firstname.lastname@example.org. She will work with you to schedule one of these sessions. If you intend to submit an application this year, please start one as soon as possible.
I will be hosting another live interactive web event, Everything You Need to Know about Johnson Admissions, on April 9th at 5:30pm EST. This event will cover how we view different profiles of candidates and why it isn't the only part we consider in admissions decisions. The term "fit" is often used and we will address how you can identify which of your experiences and skills align with our community. I have invited members of the admissions committee to candidly share their tips. Lastly, several current first year students will share their success stories that applied this time last year. I hope you join us, so register here: http://www.johnson-cornell.com/register?eventID=111.
Remember, we highly encourage you to visit us! You can schedule a visit to Johnson directly from our home page. Classes are held through the end of April and if you are here on a Thursday, you can join us for Sage Social - a community wide social hour held in our Atrium.
As always, please do not hesitate to reach out to me or anyone on the admissions team. Cheers to springtime!
