This one is you're looking for I guess http://gmatclub.com/forum/columbia-j-term-calling-all-applicants-class-of-151308.html. These guys would graduate in 2016 I think along with the August entry of 2014.

See this.

Re: Calling all CBS Applicants - (2015 Intake) Class of 2017 [#permalink] New post 29 Jun 2014, 08:23
Guys, I am going to be a re-applicant to CBS, this time for the J-term.

I noticed that CBS have an abridged application for re-applicant, wherein they only require a 500-word re-applicant essay, and they state that 'Re-applicants are NOT required to submit additional essays. Only the re-applicant essay is required.'

I was wondering whether I may still go ahead and submit the standard 3 essays, in addition to the required re-applicant essay. I want to do this because I know that my previous essays were completely crap, and as such, want the opportunity to submit them again to better articulate my goals and career ambitions.

Do you think I may be able to do this?

You should reach out to CBS either through GMAT Club or directly to get this clarified! It's always better to know this sort of stuffs from the source itself, I believe :-)

For recommendation letters, does CBS have a word count restriction for each of the two questions they want recommenders to answer? I could not find one on the application requirements page.

I believe it is a 1000 word recommended limit.

I don't think there's a penalty or anything if your recommender goes over it, but I think 1000 words per recommendation is probably more than enough.

My recommender asked me if he can upload the file as one letter, not specifically answering each of the two questions (he'll answer them in the letter). Do you guys know how to proceed?

I think uploading one letter is ok. But I can't really answer that.

It would probably best to ask admissions directly either email, phone call, or there's a forum topic to reach out to Columbia Admissions.

Would be awesome if we found out that we got in a year in advance. Good luck - hope Columbia knows that you and I started way early!
