Any updates from you guys? Kinda nervous....


Still nothing. My purely speculative theory: those of us who will be admitted will receive calls on Friday; the rest will receive dings or waitlist offers on Monday or Tuesday of next week.

I completely agree with the post's above. A large majority of the ED Deferred candidates will end up on the official W/L.

I have a suspicion a number of people here may be hanging around this thread during the day. If you find yourself bored - join the chat at http://gmatclub.com/chat . There may not be a big group at all times, but I suspect you will overlap with other applicants soon enough. This applies from now until decision day.

Sorry to hear that! :( Did your email offer any encouragement to reapply or provide a reason? This is such a nerve-wracking process...I sure hope your other apps fare better.

Here's the email:

Thank you for applying to Columbia Business School. After careful review and consideration by the Admissions Committee, we are unable to offer you admission. We are sorry to disappoint you, but the number of qualified applicants who applied for admission makes this situation inevitable.

We did not make this decision easily. We appreciate the time and effort you spent preparing your application and your interest in Columbia Business School. While it is never pleasant to receive disappointing news, we hope that you will find other ways to achieve your professional goals.

Thank you again for your interest to Columbia Business School. We wish you much success in your future endeavors.

Thanks. Been waiting since 1st week of October...I can't wait for Feb 1. No matter the outcome, I just want to know and move on with my life. CBS is my last school, been dinged / W/L everywhere else.

I hear you. Though my deferral prompted me to apply to several additional schools in R2 (so there's still hope regardless of the outcome), I really need some closure - it's been five long months since I submitted my application, and I want to move on. Here's hoping that we get some news by COB tomorrow.

I hear you on the closure. Thats all i need at this point. CBS is all upside for me. If I get in, I'll likely go as it was my first choice. If i dont, Ill go somewhere else. I just need to know whats up already!

I also got a ding email (looks like they're cleaning house today). They suggested that I apply to the EMBA program, which makes me wonder whether they actually read my essays(!). I was very clear that I am looking to change career tracks, and clearly outlined the reasons why I need a full-time MBA to achieve my goals.

On the bright side, the deferral period gave me a chance to look into other schools and led me to the realization that CBS probably wasn't the best fit for me. I'm looking forward to the next couple of months and doing my best to remain optimistic about my prospects for admission elsewhere.

Best of luck to you all with your other apps. I'd genuinely like to know how things turn out, so do keep me posted!

Hi folks, same here, basically, except without the EMBA.

Like you, I realized, after applying, that it wasn't the best fit. The alumnus I interviewed with was rude and hostile, as was the adcom member who interviewed me later on. Both gave me a very poor impression of the school, which I will carry with me.

It's all for the better.

To me, the fact that it took them 5 months to give us a response, significantly changed my view about the school, especially about the importance the admin office gives to our time and piece of mind. But anyway, since it was the first school I applied to, the experience learned (resume, essays, interviews, etc) has helped me a lot on my other applications. Best of luck to all of you!

Agreed. I know I did everything I could. 700+ GMAT, great recommendations, continual updates, promotion, campus visits, spoke with waitlist manager, awesome feedback from recommender, alumni support, employer sponsorship, etc.

AdCom, including waitlist manager, remained impersonal and detached, which only made me doubt their sincerity and interest. This deferral process should be banned in my opinion as it conflicts with the philosophy of the Early Decision process.

Nevertheless, this experience helped me improve my other applications. I look forward to hearing from other schools.
