I did check with the Ad Com and once a student is admitted they do accept updates to the application like promotions/honors received/GMAT improvements to decide on scholarships (if they have not done so already).

There is no harm in trying the way I look at it. Its a cheap call option. You pay a premium of 250 USD, forego theta of 1 month (in GMAT prep) and in case the option pays off - you can net anywhere between USD 10k and USD 40k

Would they even accept a higher GMAT though after the application is finished? It is certainly worth it to ask admissions before re-taking. They can shed light better on this.

interesting, good to know! So the real question is if the ~month studying could be better spent on applying to other fellowships. I'm just starting to look at other scholarships/fellowships and they seem relatively small compared to the potential pay out from a school offered one. I haven't done much research yet though, so other info on this is appreciated.

Apply to all the scholarships you can mate ! What do you have to lose ;) However, the b-school scholarships offer the highest amounts in US Dollars. So, if time is limited, try gunning for the b-school scholarships by improving your GMAT score.

Does anyone know exactly how alumni interviews are being scheduled? I'm assuming it's a little different from Columbia's ambassador program. The one thing I'm really interested to know is whether the alum knows that you are matched to him/her before you actually contact that alum? I'm asking because my boss went to Booth, and although it's extremely unlikely that I'm matched to him, I would rather that not be a possibility at all given that I don't want my co-workers and least of all my boss to know that I may be leaving in a couple months...

To my knowledge, co-workers cannot be matched, it's a pretty obvious conflict of interests. (I have an alumnus co-worker that gives interviews and he cannot interview me)
Also, I guess that the alum is contacted by the adcom in advance, for example to check availability to interview in that period of the year.

Two thoughts:

- The applicant's opportunity to provide the school with a co-worker's opinion is in the recommendation. I think with the interview the school is looking for as independent and objective a feedback provider they can get. Seems like a co-worker or a close acquaintance of any kind would be inappropriate. Since the school will know where both the applicant and the interviewer are employed, an accidental match seems unlikely.

- If you don't want anyone at your office to know about your MBA plans I assume this came up in some type of "why isn't my supervisor providing my recommendation?" explanation. I would imagine that even if point one above wasn't true that the school will know your feelings on the subject based on that explanation and will be sensitive on the issue.

Basically...I would guess that there is almost zero chance that you will be paired to interview with a colleague.

I am hoping to make it next weekend. I am still "negotiating" with my manager :).

Ha. Well good luck with that! I'd be curious to hear how the two weekends compared. Although, after tomorrow, it could be a moot point (for me). :)

I am hoping that's not the case for you. I am definitely rooting for you to get an invite (and then get in).

Does anyone know what time they will send the emails out? Maybe knowing the time will stop me from incessantly checking my inbox all day...probably not. I assume they will send an email, right?
