Have any regular decision candidates received an interview invite yet?


Doesn't seem like it. CBS Admissions has said it won't start reviewing RD apps until December 1 so RD interviews likely won't come out until mid-December at the earliest; more likely they'll come out in January.

Everybody who applies before the January deadline is automatically considered for fellowships and merit based scholarships. You don't have to do anything else.


How about need-based scholarship? I think i should just contact the adcom directly?


Need-based requires the FASFA, at least for US citizens. I'm not sure how it works for international students. I would contact the adcom just to be safe though.

Hi everyone, I'm working on an app right now for Columbia, hope to get it submitted in the next week or so.

Any current students out there willing to chat with me for a few minutes about their experience so far? Phone/email or whatever is most convenient.


Go on the Columbia website. They list many opportunities to chat with a Columbia student. Hermes Society is probably your best bet.

Hermes Society is great. Also look up any clubs you might want to join, they often have emails for the club officers listed online. They can really help you get some good details to include in the application process. I talked to people in the Hermes Society, Military in Business Association and Value Investing Program. I think that helped me focus my application much better than just looking on the website.

Congrats on the acceptance by the way mappleby. I also have a fairly low gpa (3.2), did you talk about yours in the optional essay or do anything in particular to take the sting off the gpa?


You nailed the GMAT so that will help you out for sure. 2 questions, what was your undergrad major and do you have any F's on your transcript? I was an engineering major so I think that gave me some flexibility but I also have 3 F's on my transcript. So yes, I addressed it in an optional essay. If you choose to write one, keep it short. Mine was less than 400 words total. I basically said, look I screwed up and didn't know how to properly balance all the activities I got involved with. I explained how I worked on my time management skills and my final year was my best GPA.
