The directions in the document provided by CBS to recommenders state:

"Please enter your responses in the allotted space below. Once you have completed this recommendation, please log into the recommendation website and upload this document in the ‘Questions’ section."

This seems pretty specific, so I'd imagine it's best to follow the directions and just answer the questions.


Hi brainhurt. Thanks a lot for the info.
I think I miss that part the first time around. I will go back and read it thoroughly.

No problem. That's from the document that gets sent directly to your recommenders, so you might not be able to find that info (one of my recommenders sent me the document before he submitted it).

Re: Calling All CBS 2011 Applicants!! [#permalink] New post 22 Jun 2010, 08:51
can someone confirm that this is the accurate list of recommendation questions?

1. What is your relationship to, and how long have you known the applicant? Is this person still employed by your organization? If not, when did he/she depart?

2. Please provide a short list of adjectives describing the applicant's strengths.

3. Please compare the applicant's performance to that of his/her peers. Does the applicant have the potential to become a senior manager?

4. How effective are the applicant's interpersonal skills in working with peers, supervisors and subordinates?

5. How does the applicant accept constructive criticism?

6. Comment on your observations of the applicant's ethical behavior.

7. What do you think motivates the candidate's application to Columbia Business School?

8. In what ways could the applicant improve professionally? If you could change one thing about the applicant, what would it be?

9. Are there any other matters which you feel we should know about the applicant?


Thanks

With the exception of Hazay, I think that three weeks is quite early to hear back.

If I had to bet I would say it will take 5 weeks to see the first interview invites, given 1 june as under review date I think it will take another 2 weeks to start rolling out invitations (ie the week starting on July 5th)...

Finger crossed 8-)

I was just kidding, Hazay said that he will have a very early feedback given that his profile is a no-brainer...

I know waiting game is quite hard, try not to think about it too much...

Week starting on July 5th ? Sounds good to me

The first week after submission seemed long but once you start to deal with other applications (Wharton published terrific new questions and Harvard made a simple but helping twist to their usual essays), you dont think about the waiting game too much.

Maybe they say they start reviewing them upon receipt, but they just print out and wait until August? :P Adcom are human too - they gotta take some break.

Seeing guys who've already submitted, I guess agony actually starts after submission.

I wonder how advantageous ED is. Looking at last year's thread, the percentage was pretty good, but the profiles of accepted ones are high GMAT high GPA - no funky exception. I've seen unusual profiles in Booth/Kellogg/Wharton but not so in CBS.

Re: Calling All CBS 2011 Applicants!! [#permalink] New post 23 Jun 2010, 08:05
Can someone help me on the below:
- How advantageous ED is? Will applying in ED for Sep'11 benifit the applicant?
- I understand that the Deadline for Jan'11 intake is Oct 6th - But considering that its a rolling admission, is it late to apply by June end.

I will be able to build a good application by June end/early July, but am not able to decide between ED Vs Regular. Need your inputs.

I think ED gives you some advantage. I just don't think anyone can quantify it. It boils down to the question whether you really want to go to CBS.

Yes, it should, but since ED is binding, your committment may play bigger than your app's perfection.

Is anybody active in BW forum? Somebody must've received something.

I agree you cannot quantify ED advantage, but it is surely way easier to apply succesfully for ED rather than RD, I think that the commitment required and non refundable deposit is quite a barrier for lots of people.

As per deadlines, I think that there are two aspects to be considered.

First of all, movement on J-term is not comparable to ED/RD. J-Term cuts out lots of people and it is actually designed mainly for those who will get back to their former employment. So applying by the end of June should not put you in a doomed position, which is what happened pretty much this year for all the people who applied after Jan 6. I think that the real point with J-term is whether you already have an employment offer after b-school or not.

The other aspect is that they are not giving any more opening dates indications, which tended to concentrate all the submissions in one day. In the last RD they said that they would have started reviewing applications upon Jan 6, so almost everybody applied on Jan 6 (and so you knew exactly that your deadline was Jan 5... :roll: ). Given that the indication is gone you don't have concentrations so the sooner you apply the better, but the dispersion of application will be higher.

Bottom line, it all comes down to what you really are going to do after b-school. If it doesn't make a difference for you to start on Sept rather than Jan and you're a career switcher I would surely pick ED, if you will get back to your former empolyment I think you're still on time to apply for J-term.

Will the deposit upon ED acceptance be applied against tuition later?

I know NYC is expensive, but I hope they don't eat my $6G @.@

lawgonebusiness- Yeah, interview invite. BW forum seems so..... chaotic in its layout, fonts, etc. so I don't go there often. But in terms of activity, it seems as active as GC.
