apply. if you dont get in, apply e.d. next year. they like reapplicants - perhaps more so than any other school.


Interesting. But thing is, I already put so much effort into this process for the past 2 years, so I don't wanna wait ANOTHER full year. It's go time for me, and I put it in my head that i'm going to go no matter what. I know wherever I go, I will hustle and grind and get to where I want to be no matter which school I end up at. I just wanna have no regrets by applying. You never know, a top 10 school could see something they like that a top 25 school didn't see...my friend got rejected by 10 schools before finally getting admitted to MIT last year, and MIT was the highest ranked school he applied to and he applied in the LAST round too. He said he wasn't even thinking about applying and said he was gonna wait another year...just goes to show you, the worst thing that can happen is they say no. I'm taking that chance.

do a lot of people apply multiple times. this probably dilutes the applicant pool

? You can only apply once in a given year. According to BusinessWeek, about 10% of CBS's applicants are re-applicants

I'll be reapplying ED this year. Hopefully with much better luck than last year.

For those of you reapplying, I've heard the 'new' letter of rec needs to be from someone else, not just a new letter from one of your previous 2 recommenders. This is hugely disappointing to me if it's accurate, as I've worked for only two managers and both wrote letters for me last year. I can find someone else to write it, but I can't see the letter being as strong since all my work with them is project based.

I was a re-app last year and re-apps have a lot of the work cut out because its only 1 essay. But yes it is 1 new recommender, you cannot ask the last two to write again. I had confirmed this with adcoms last year.

Hey guys! I`ll be applying for RD - any other RD applicants around? Good luck to everyone!

One thing - I live abroad and cannot visit NYC before my application (unless a random lucky business trip comes up), does anyone know if this has a big impact?

Not even a tiny one, otherwise those who aren't able to travel would be disadvantaged.

Count me in for CBS.

It's a quote from an F Scott Fitzgerald's poem. They used it in the new Great Gatsby trailer


Does anyone know the situation with the ED $6k deposit? Like do we get it back once we pay tuition, does it get applied to tuition, or neither?

aah that's why it sounded familiar.

That's actually a good question. I assumed it just went toward tuition, but I wouldn't be surprised if it's returned after tuition is paid.
