Anybody notice the very high percentage of admits among gmatclub ED applicants that interviewed? The spreadsheet says only 4 were deferred, 1 was denied..all the rest were admitted. This seems strange, but as a guy waiting for an answer after his interview makes me optimistic. Also, I'm on gmatclub.com on Saturday night. Terrible.

One thing that I've noticed is that the data/student profiles on these forums are skewed. There are a lot of lurkers! So I'd take the data w grain of salt!
7K apply to CBS. Hardly 200 are here!

I just wired my $6000 deposit to Columbia. Included a note: "I choose to accept your invite for admission." I haven't been admitted yet, but figured a little aggression couldn't hurt.

Consider it a date. You pay for dinner, and you're not sure how it's going to end. It's a risk you take. But only here, you decide if it's a good match through your essays, instead of a 2-3 hr long interview.

I was just placed on the waitlist. I'm applying for J-term. Is this a positive sign? I understand that the waitlist is better than an outright rejection but do people at CBS generally come off the list? Does anyone have any advice on what to do next?

i'm waiting also...10/6 submit, approximately 10/15 under review...haven't heard anything

looking above though, there was someone submitting 10/5 that just got the interview...I think that they probably are just getting to the majority of the 10/1-10/6 applicants as there are only 2 10/5 or 10/6 applicants on the spreadsheets that have gotten interview invites (per the spreadsheet)

keep up hope...i'm tyring to

Sorry to hear that guys.
bonkselle23, osonipse, sangjo - if you guys don't mind, can you guys share a little bit about your background and if you guys are international applicants?

I also applied on 10/6 but I haven't heard anything so far. I'm based here in the US.

Don't give up hope. I am in a similar position. Been under review since Oct 11th. No interview. I think a lot of qualified applicants are still waiting. The wait is frustrating, but you are not alone.

Really appreciate those who took time updating on this board. I especially admire those who updated with their "Ding"; I think it is an indication of your true confidence ( I might not have this courage to do so). Good luck to everyone. May force be with us.

There are no 'waitlists' yet; only deferrals.

The letter essentially goes like this - starts off with the usual spiel on how they value your loyalty etc. and how there are only so many spots. However, because your application was good, they have deferred making a decision until 1 Feb 2011 though they can contact you anytime. If you am still interested in being considered, you should let them know and that they welcome additional materials to strengthen your candidacy.

So I wrote to them to still consider my application and that is when they wrote back to say 'cool, you have been released from the ED commitment' implying that I am now an RD applicant. So this is not a waitlist situation because being accepted in not contingent upon others dropping out; it depends on how my application compares with all the new applications coming in now in RD (though only till Feb 1).


You are right. However, the other ED applicant I spoke to had a much sooner date on his letter (sometime in December) that he would hear by. Considering they don't start reviewing RD applications until mid-Dec, this scenario is essentially an ED waitlist because it is contingent upon the ED pool, for which the deadline has already passed.

The intelligent thing would be to call them back instead of posting those questions here don't you think?

smusCOX2 that's really not necessary. This is a forum to support each other. Even if you think it's a stupid question, it's not stupid to the person asking it. You don't need to put them down.

Agreed. Some people who received request for followup calls may have to re-explain their motivations to do an MBA and their backup plans. So it may not just be just an acceptance call. No harm in being informed and soliciting advice before talking with people who hold power to make life-changing decisions.

sparkles279, gkumar, nink, vwjetty, cg86 and everyone else
Thank you for your advice and support!
I could only hope that the people I go to school with are as nice and supportive as the folks here:)
Just to update you guys, I called back and basically was told that I have been admitted!

Now, I have a question about the deposits for those of you who already paid, do I wire the money or send them a cheque, how does this work? If I am late say by a day or two to make my deposits since I need to pull my funds together (it's a large sum of money, I didn't know I would hear back so soon, since everyone was waiting for such a long time after their interview went complete), would that be okay? If I just tell admissions this situation? Especially people who has been in this situation, I would really appreciate your insights!

Meanwhile, all I want to say is Keep Faith to those of you still waiting. You have to believe that things will work out. I had this thought even at the beginning of the process that things will work out. It's great we have this community here. It's hard in real life for me since I have no other friends doing this right now, so it's always great to come to gmatclub and read about other people's experiences. It's kept me sane during this process. Anyhoo, I am getting way to emo here, so I will stop:)
