In some cases, the frustrations of setting up interviews with alums really makes one doubt the vibe of the CBS community--and how supportive they will be as a part of the MBA experience. The admissions should really take this matter seriously. It will hurt the yield of the school.


How long did you wait? I emailed one ambassador, she immediately got back to me, apologized, and said she wasn't doing the program this year. I emailed the second and we set it up the next day. 48-hour turnover--I'm actually quite impressed by their responsiveness.

My experience was sort of in between - the first person I emailed never responded, but the second got back to me within 10 minutes and we set up the interview for the next week.

It really is very strange - not to mention how unhelpful/disorganized they are with visiting/prospective students. It was a stark contrast to every other school I visited (Stern, Kellogg, Booth), and leaves serious questions in my mind about fit. I don't really understand why a top school seems to not care about interacting with prospective students and applicants, but whatever works, I guess.

I had trouble contacting alumni and ended up interviewing with the ad com, which was very different because they have access to your essays and all, but not bad at all.

I disageee about their receptiveness to prospective students! I visited the schools 3 times and was very well received by all. NYU for example didnt want to receive me and said that contact is made only through interviews.
Its relative to each students perception.

Yes everyone definitely has different experiences, but at NYU they have a very well organized visiting students program including class visits, coffee chats, etc. I have no idea what happened with you. I found no such program at Columbia and felt that they made me fend for myself if I wanted to participate in anything on campus. It just wasn't welcoming. Glad you had a better experience.

I am 0 for 2 - neither prospective interviewer has even responded to my email. Just curious if anyone has requested to be interviewed on campus....I have a campus visit planned in a couple of weeks and thought that might be a good option, but do not want to step outside of the boundaries if that is the way it would be perceived. Anyone have any experience on this?

Sorry to hear. I submitted 1/8. I suppose I can expect to hear from them in the next few days...Out of curiosity, are you based out of the NYC-area?

NYC. I actually live about 20 blocks from Columbia. Thanks in advance to all the interview advice posted - I will read through it all before contacting my potential interviewers.
