dosa aka mojomover, there is definitely an advantage by submitting in ED. I suspect Columbia will not have an ED bucket per se, so any candidate with a good profile and good essays will get in because he has already demonstrated interest by signing up for the ED round.

That said, I suspect that the closer you get to the ED deadline, your returns start diminishing. So, dont submit an app on the Ed deadline.

Thank you, ncprasad! :)

Okay, I want the rest of you gmatclubbers to take a moment of silence and pray to your God about my first application. My fellow atheists can pray to the theory of evolution, if they want.

dosa, I had a similar suggestion for kryzak a few days back. I think that at this stage, when almost all the R1 deadlines are a month or so away, I would not recommend focussing on more than 2 schools (Unless you are almost done with one application).

Dont you think there could be another person who thought of that acronym at the same time I did? :)

On a side note: what does your crystal ball say about my future? :P

Now I understand why everybody was checking the statuses of their applications many times in a day. I have submitted the Columbia application today and I already feel like checking the status :(

I FINALLY turned in my application today as well. Talking about status checking phobia, I checked the status of my app 30 mins after submitting it, from my blackberry, while I was in a meeting!

First, its the crazy race of turning the app in. Then, its the anxiety of the interview call, then the admit, then to leave job, then to start school....etc. etc.

Such is life.

Congrats!

Just keep telling yourself... "It'll all be worth it once you get your MBA!"

At least you're not going for a Law degree, which I heard had a 50% dissatisfaction rate. :shock:

all the best to you buddy. since you applied earlier, chances are you'll be the first on this thread with an interview invite! :)

i also noticed that this thread has at least 2x the messages and views compared with the other threads for other schools. are columbia applicants that communicative, or are there just more columbia applicants? :? hahaha

Thanks.. I hope to share good news with you all... In my opinion.. there are more posts in this thread compared to the others because of the timeline... I am sure when H/S/W deadline is near their threads will heat up like Columbia's is right now...

Yeah .. the columbia R1(ED) application cycle is at its peak right now. Hence the huge number of posts. But as we complete the applications and move on to other schools (Interviews are still some time away), those other schools will catch up (And in some cases, surpass) the Columbia thread. After all, most of the other schools are still one month away from the peak.

Status update: Your application has now been printed, and we are matching supplemental materials to your application file.

All the best to all of you guys.
