You'll have to check back in the thread to confirm but....I want to say that CBS tends to release results on Wednesdays.

it's been 3 weeks since my ap went complete. I think I went under review feb 2nd, but I'm not sure since it doesn't say which update was which on the e-mails next week will be the 12th week since then, their website conflicts in a few places but it seems to say that you will progress through several stages with in a total 12 weeks from under review date process. does that mean I'm gonna have to wait til next week?

Anyone going for the admit weekend? I'm still WL-ed but I'd love to meet some of the admits (I'm in NYC).
PM me, if you are...

cheers.

Hi All!

Just had my Columbia interview (I applied the last possible day!) and not really sure what to think. To be honest I think admissions committee interviews like (NYU) are probably a bit more objective. I didn't have much of a choice but to hurry and get an interview since tuition/registration starts soon for other schools and I want an answer ASAP. As a result, I don't think I had the best interviewer for me - and I feel almost like if he would not want to be my "friend" then he probably wouldn't recommend me - he seemed to find it odd that I enjoy decorating cookies and partaking in various craft-related activities haha! Plus he seemed taken aback by the questions I had about student vibe etc.

All in all I did get asked the ETHICS questions but not as most people did where is relates to something at work -but rather he asked me what have I read in the paper lately that I found to be the most interesting ethical dilemma - HELLO WHERE DOES ONE BEGIN THESE DAYS?!!! So i tied it back to my industry which I figured was a bit more neutral of an answer and then ultimately tied it into my work. I am not sure if he liked that but I didn't want to get into calling people greedy or sacrilegious!

I emailed to thank him and said it was great meeting you blah blah blah and asked if he knew about a particular program at the school and I got an email back that said "I don't" - which I don't think is a good sign!

He was a nice guy, I just might have been too much of "myself" for him!

After months of waitlist trauma, got rejected today. This wraps up my 2009 journey. If someone had told me in 2008 that I won't get a single admit after applying to 6 schools and that I'll be waitlisted twice and that I'll have 4 interview calls...I wouldn't have believed any of it. But looking back, it's all good. I learned a lot and have my priorities very well defined thanks to all the setbacks. I'm determined for a part two hopefully with a better result :-) Columbia's email suggested strongly to reapply and it's only 1 essay. So I'm going to utilize that opportunity and apply for ED and if need be apply to other schools in Round 2.

Don't let CBS bring you down! Start the new app year strongly! :-D
