Just so everybody knows: I am a J-Term applicant. Just called the admissions office and they told me I was accepted. Just wanted to let people know that if they miss a call from the admssions office and get an email to call them back to have a "brief chat" it probably means you are in. They told me they like to call people before they change theirs status online...I was really nervous because I thought they were going to ask me questions about certain things but it was just then welcoming me to CBS...Good luck everyone!!! Hang in there!

globalMBA: Congrats! I've met quite a few of the CBSers from Brazil and many have become some of my closest friends here. You'll be in good company :)

Something seems off with the file. Some rows have decision dates PRIOR to complete dates and i'm blocked from the 2011 thread file.

I had my interview on 8/20 and went complete 8/23... based solely on prior performance, when should I hear back (admit or ding)?


Reattached the file post-QC check. My bad. :oops:

Mine went complete 8/29 so I hope we hear back by next week.

Hey guys, J-term applicant here with an interview scheduled for next week.

I've heard from a couple people and from an info session that a large number of the J-term applications don't get submitted until pretty close to the final October deadline. Anybody have any insight as to why that might be? This is more out of curiosity than anything.



I know you question was posed to J-Term but I think this applies for Fall 2012 as well. While CBS has rolling admissions, people tend to wait until the last minute to submit to try to get every last second to review/update/improve their application. I think its just part of human nature.

Hm, my question is... those who got contacted last year or even J-Term... what time in the day did they receive their admit calls? From what I see most were posted prior to lunch time EST?

So no activity from adcom today? So much for analyzing past performance to predict future results.

Submitted yesterday and being reviewed DUHNUHNUHNUHNUH.


Do you guys interview with the adcom or with an alumni in your industry? Or do you pick? Is there a difference or is one generally better than the other to do?


You can't interview with the adcom.

Your only option is to interview with an alum, but if that isn't possible, you can arrange a phone interview with a current student.

2 admits (Gobias and one mentioned from this past weekend)... a few dings (2 or 3)... and I know at least 3 or 4 of us who went complete around the 24th of August who are in limbo still which is what has me boggled considering one of the dings went complete a few days prior to the 24th and Gobias who got the call today was two days after the 24th. Trying to figure out the rhyme or reason is anyones game.

Hm, Gobias when did you originally app? Pagal got accepted and went complete after I went complete... however he did app nearly a week before me. Wondering if the complete status matters as much as when the app was submitted. IE... while we went complete same time... perhaps those of us who app'd the following week would be on the bottom of the pile is what I'm thinking. The concept of rolling would indicate that those earlier would get called earlier :) Gobias, can you confirm you app'd prior to 8/10?


I'm sure you don't care about this any more since you got admitted, but I applied 8/2, went complete 8/3.

Guys - for updating your status (app submitted, under review, admitted etc.) pls go to your profile and update against Columbia Business School. I don't have the authority to do that for you.

Would encourage you to do that to help everyone who visits this thread be completely up to speed. Thanks and all the best! And to those who got in, many many congratulations!

I think from the number of interviews we've collectively gone through on this forum, my 2 suggestions would be to be yourself and to OWN your answers to "why MBA, why now, why Columbia".

Just remember to take a deep breath every now and then, and you'll do fine :)

Nevermind, interview is set!!!!! Phew! that is a load off my back. Now just have to wait.... :-D

Had my first full blown admissions dream yesterday! I gave an admissions person a copy of my essays and they said it was some of the best essays they've ever read :P . Thats a good sign, right? Or should I be concerned about my mental well-being? :P
