Hi all.

I applied on 01/30 and I am still waiting for an invitation for interview (or denial of admissions). Did you guys first receive the invitation for interview on your e-mail, or did you get a status update on the webpage?


I'm in the same boat as you - Applied a bit on the late side (2/15) and haven't heard anything. They do pick applications up as they come in, though, and it's entirely possible they're still working through the merit scholarship applicants. The latest application I've seen someone get moved on was an interview invite for a 1/14 applicant. I wouldn't give up hope yet, but it's looking more likely that I'll be accepting another school's offer before I hear anything from CBS.

Anyone get an interview invite lately?

I'm in the same boat as you guys. I applied on 7th Feb and am waiting to hear back. I checked the previous pages and haven't seen any one reporting an interview invite lately.

From what I remember, CBS sent out a lot of invites in "batches" - not as in a flash email but in the sense that large groups got invited within informal periods. Adcom may be focused on getting out final decisions for the merit scholarship group so regard the no news as good news for now :-)

not sure which aspect of my app was weak, so a little unsure as to whether i should submit additional materials. possibly an additional recommendation?

Sorry to hear that; when did your interviewer submit feedback?

Does this interview qualify as 'worst interview ever'? Just based on length of time...wow.....

You will definitely hear today or tomorrow. Don't worry too much about the length of time though, it took them the full two weeks to give my decision.

Based on responses here, I've noticed notifications in as little as 6 business days (which means that Tuesday might be my day!). That does seem really quick. I wonder what the "new stuff" actually is.


So my interviewer (who was surprisingly knowledgeable about all of this stuff) said that Columbia had a long term dean of admissions who was much beloved, but then she retired, and then they brought in a guy who didn't work out, and so the new dean is someone who had worked underneath the old one that everyone liked. Basically now they are trying to streamline their application process, especially in the face of a double digit increase in applications from last year.

Part of it might just be not having enough admissions counselors to process everything, given the increase in applications, and so needing to figure out how to be most efficient with their manpower.

Also - good luck! I hope that you hear good news, and sooner rather than later!


Hi all - is there any official release saying that CBS recovered from last year's plunge in # of applicants? (which would definitely make sense, given CBS long term reputation)
Cheers

Not necessarily. They will continue award fellowships until April if last year was any indication.
