no activity on this in 4 days?? went interview complete on around 21 March (didn't get an email, might have been the 18th March). Is it too wishful thinking for me to hope to hear back kinda soon...? Has anyone heard anything in past few days?


No action here.

Is there any substantive difference between our current state and being on the CBS waitlist? Why have some been waitlisted and others just told to wait?

I'm wondering the same thing.. I've been complete since 3/1 and not sure what's going on at this point. Is this the unofficial waitlist..?

Columbia Connect II begins this Thursday. I doubt there will be any movement this week, as they are probably very busy preparing for the admit weekend. Also, most people's deposits are due 4/15. You will probably see decisions pick up after that.

good news! have been accepted for jan 2012 entry! anyone else on the waiting list interested in jan 2012 start should talk to admissions about this possibility.

in the meantime.. anyone else have this happen to them?? The Jan '12 application hasn't opened yet but from the sound of it this may have happened to others as well...

Hi guys,

I have a call with CBS tomorrow to discuss fellowships. They make it sound like an interview. Do you know what this is about? any preparation recommended?

Cheers

i've pretty much written off my chances at cbs. i applied on 12/10, interviewed on 1/14, interview complete on 1/18, and i still don't have an answer. i haven't been able to get additional information about my status on the phone. maybe the 19th week will be the charm haha. i'm certainly not holding my breath. i stopped holding it in early feb.

It was a quick skype video call. Couple of classical questions (greatest challenge, greatest accomplishment, why did you choose your career etc.) It went well overall but:
- I was asked for a lot of details on why Columbia was a good fit for me: e.g. course names etc. and was only able to give little.
- I have an NGO background and tried to sound like a business guy. I learned at the end of the call that the fellowship I was being considered for (80k$) was for people with specific career objectives in the humanitarian/development fields.

Overall I don't think I'll get it. If so I probably won't take the CBS offer.

and after all that, i just got in (in the 19th week of waiting). if you're still waiting for an answer, keep up the hope. my experience is proof that you really can get an answer at any time.

Just got a status update email.

Waitlisted. Demoralizing.

At least now, the waiting is official...?

Hey Crackalack - keep the faith mate! I was looking at last year's thread and it looked like people were getting in off the waitlist well into late June. Where would you go if you had to choose today?
