I want to know this too. I used to think you were locked in if applying ED, but I went to an information session this monday and the admissions rep said there are people every year that make the $6K deposit after being accepted ED then go to another school, forfeiting the deposit, so it does happen. I think the ED decision is so early that its hard to get in AND wait for decisions from other schools without making the deposit.

Im thinking about ED, but i'm leaning toward RD. I've done much more research for Columbia then any other school, so i just don't feel like I know enough about the other schools to commit 100% to Columbia. But that could change in 2 months, I've wanted to attend Columbia in some form since high school. I will definitely be done with my application before the deadline. :?

With ED, once an admit has been made, you have only two weeks to make a decision. If you decide to accept the offer, you immediately owe a $6,000 non-refundable deposit. While CBS would argue this, many people feel that CBS is more generous during ED than it is with regular decision.

Early Decision
  • Available for August entry applicants only
  • Application deadline in early October
  • Early decision applications are reviewed, and decisions rendered, before regular decision applications
  • Candidates have decided that Columbia is their first choice and must sign the following statement of commitment within their applications: I am committed to attending Columbia Business School and will withdraw all applications and decline all offers from other schools upon admission to Columbia Business School.
  • Applicants must submit a nonrefundable $6,000 tuition deposit within two weeks of admission

I know for RD the earlier you apply the better, but is the same true of ED? E.g. if i apply to ED by the deadline are my chances much less then if i had applied for ED in July? And if thats so, are you better off applying to RD in Mid October then applying to ED on the deadline?

No word so far. They say J term decisions should be made within 2 weeks after the completion of interview. Should be right around now.

Tiggy, that's soem crazy GPA you got there, the worst grade you got was probably a single B+
