Being a former auditor at Deloitte, I thought I'd do a little digging and I checked last year's forum - "Calling All CBS 2010 Applicants". Based on my review, i have some good news and really bad news..

The good news- people were getting invited for interviews well into March and April and were getting acceptances well into the summer - July even.

The bad news- people were getting invited for interviews well into March and April and were getting acceptances well into the summer - July even. :( Meaning that the waiting could continue for months!!!!!!!!!!


Following dw21's example, I did a little "audit" digging of my own. Looking at the thread from last year, people who interviewed in late January/Early Feb received decisions the 2nd week of March. If past results is any indication of future performance...

As an accepted candidate to Columbia, I really hope you get dinged. Your posts are not petty, they are pathetic. To come on a public board amongst peers that are excited and committed to the chance of attending Columbia and then denegrate the school is just irresponsible and immature. Lets all be serious. Gmat club is an extremely small subset of the total application pool. To make judgements about how the admission process works based on these posts whether it be timing, essay, etc. etc. is extremely short sighted and frankly, stupid. The process is spelled clearly by Columbia and if upsets you, you shouldn't have applied. and since you did, maybe consider withdrawing. Stop spewing your consipiracy theories with this nonsense you drummed up in your head. Wait patiently to get an answer and consider yourself lucky you haven't been dinged yet.


Congratulations to you and anyone else in this thread who I don't have time to reply to on your acceptance. I wish you (all) could see me in person to know that I don't begrudge your success.

The process is not spelled out as clearly as you suggest, and that's what I was commenting on. Furthermore, I don't believe it's fair to the applicants who worked hard on their GMATs and essays and to their recommenders who put in a lot of volunteer hours for the adcoms to wait 2+ months just to find out if the applicant will be interviewed.


"In a given application season, the Admissions Office will begin reviewing January and September Early Decision applications once all required materials have been received, and will begin reviewing September Regular Decision applications in December, again, once all required materials have been received. We work to release decisions in a timely manner and decisions can be rendered at any time. Please note that an invitation to interview may extend the review process beyond our 8-12 week goal."

Have you waited 12 weeks yet? If not, STOP COMPLAINING! you knew what you signed up for. Jeez man. Welcome to MBA admissions to top programs. Act like you've been here before. If you want to continue to complain about Columbia (the school everyone on here would hope to attend) take it elsewhere! Positive energy only!

Chaolien:

In response to your question about whether you should apply now, I am 100% in agreement with the post below by an admissions consultant. I think you'll find this relevant:

When you get a ding does the email subject say your account status has been updated or a decision has been rendered?

It says a decision has been rendered in the email. I read that on the forum and just got the email. Closure.

Ding with no interview. With MIT, that's two in four days. Pressure growing for UChicago in nine days.

is anyone waiting for a decision after an interview? if so, when did you interview?


Yup, I interviewed on 2/24 and am still waiting (system went complete on 3/1). Looks like some people have been at interview complete much longer than I have, so I can't complain. Still, this wait is killer..

When did you interview?

I interviewed 2/25 and my application has yet to go complete :(

I think it's hard not to feel impatient when there are a lot of folks in the spreadsheet who heard back in <4 days.. Then again, the average is ~2 weeks... Still doesn't make it any easier.

don't give up hope just yet!! i submitted FOURTEEN WEEKS AGO and only heard today! :) it took over 3 weeks to schedule my interview and over 4 weeks for my interview to go complete.

i don't know the exact dates of my status changes because i never received email updates, but just remember that sometimes no news is good news!

just FYI, i did not get a call--just an email with The Admissions Committee has rendered a decision on your application to Columbia Business School. i thought it was a definite rejection!

all the best to everyone. i feel your pain on the wait, but just stay optimistic!

(p.s. East Coast based)
