We haven't seen any yet on GMAT Club but that doesn't mean it isn't/won't happen. They wouldn't bother with a waitlist if they didn't plan on accepting at least some people.

Yep, I submitted on 12/24 and still have not heard back, yet as full disclosure I had issues with the fee payment system and had to wire them the money which they acknowledged receipt on 1/2/2013

I got dinged today. Submitted Nov 1, interview invite on Dec 17, and interviewed on January 7th. Final review submitted on January 15th.

I'm convinced that it was because of my interview. My interviewer hated that I was on the younger side of the age range; he just didn't like me from the start and kept going back to my age which isn't even that young; it's still within the range.

My advice for anyone getting a Columbia invite, be careful on the interviewer you pick. Try go for someone older to interview you; they won't have as much of a superiority complex. Research them before you pick one. Make sure it is someone who could relate to you. I cannot stress how important this is.

Good luck!

Big big agree! got dinged last year because of exactly the same reason! Selected a fresh CBS MBA graduate...and bad chemistry from the beginning.....The interviewer acted a bit picky and unfriendly, kept talking about I was too young while I had over 4 years w/e last year.

Reapplied this year, but missed the ED round, waiting for interview invite.

Maybe I lucked out - I had a new grad as my interviewer as well. She was professional throughout the conversation and it went very well without any feeling of there being a superiority complex. Now, granted, I am 30, so most likely older than you guys are, but because I had gotten another Master's before this, I'm at five years of work experience.

The problem with "picking" your interviewer, too, is that you don't want to be trying to get one person (out of the three they give you) and have the process drag on because the person doesn't get back to you for whatever reason. It was the holiday season, and I contacted all three of the interviewers and the first person who got back to me took about two weeks to get back to me. A second person got back to me three weeks after my email, and my interview had already taken place by then. I never heard from the third. So definitely be aware of all circumstances around the interview setup (including background of interviewer and timing), since it would probably work to your advantage to interview as soon as you can.

Admitted yesterday!

Submitted: 11/29
Invited to Interview: 12/21
Interviewed: 1/8
Feedback Submitted: 1/9
Admitted: 1/22

Also had a recent grad interview, and I liked that because I felt like I could relate easily. He just went through the admissions process a few years ago, etc. Also, I can confirm that your status is updated after you receive the call from admissions.

Congrats on the admit. Now you have to decide if you can make it to NYC over the weekend of the Feb 15-16 for Columbia Connect. Don't forget to join the LinkedIn and Facebook groups. They're listed on the first page of this thread.

Just received an interview invite! Submitted 12/24. Seems like there are differing opinions on whom I should pick for an interviewer. What was the interview like? Were there any curveball questions?

Congratulations!!

It really is a crabshoot... My interviewer was a relatively recent grad working in the retail industry. The person was the first one on my list, and the interviewer responded to my e-mail quick so I fortunately did not have to look for other interviewers. (some people had trouble getting a hold of one in this stage) The interview was laid back and conversational, like most other interviews reported here. There were no curveball questions, just straight up Run Me Through Resume, Why MBA, Why CBS questions. I wasn't even asked the ethical dilemma question. Out of 45-50 minutes of time, I think first ten minutes was small talk regarding her industry, her region/market, etc. The last fifteen minutes were devoted to my questions.

I'd say the best way to pick your interviewer is to search on LinkedIn / internet and go for the one that you can identify the most with.

Just received an interview invite submitted 12/26.

Does anyone know if the interviewers get an e-mail sent to them after the 3 interviewers are determined for a candidate?

The reason I ask is I wanted at least 1 week to prep. I was planning on e-mailing them tomorrow if that is the case. If they don't receive any notice that I was selected for an interview by them, I wanted to e-mail them on Monday.

Thanks!

Very excited! Submitted 12/29 and received an invite to interview today. It is very interesting that Columbia gives you a choice of who to interview with. All three names I received have impressive and interesting backgrounds, but all very different from what my goals are. Not sure how to make the decision, but I'll have to think on it more tonight. Thanks for everyone's advice on selecting the interviewer carefully!
