Good luck! I'm hoping to hear back any day now - the wait is agonizing!


Seconded. Wait is even worse since Uris is right across the street from me (granted, it's not a very pretty building at all, but still makes me increasingly antsy). :| Wondering if I should pop into the admissions office to try to desperately wheedle them along.

I interviewed last Friday (9/7) and am eagerly awaiting a decision. My best advice for those interviewing would be to thoroughly read the contributions on this site: http://www.clearadmit.com/wiki/index.ph ... aInterview

Good luck to everyone! Seems like the process is fully underway.

Best of luck to you Bananas, I have my interview scheduled this Friday, and am quite nervous to say to least. Fingers crossed, hoping we both get the chance to meet in person next year.

Hi all! New to this forum. Received the "time to schedule your interview" e-mail with the three "ambassadors" with whom you're matched in your area on Friday morning. E-mailed the primary contact Friday and did not hear back, so sent out an e-mail to the second interviewer last night. The instructions clearly state to give them two business days to respond and the list itself presumably includes three contacts for this reason (CBS alum being busy / travling out of town / having outdated contact info); I'm only in the first day of the second interviewer being contacted, but I thought I would reach out to this forum to ask those who have already interviewed or are scheduling interviews whether they dealt with similar situations. The instructions even state how you can refresh your contact list twice if you go through all three. I'm not trying to be impatient but am excited to interview as I'm applying ED to my #1 choice.

Thanks for any feedback and good luck to all!

You're doing well. Just be patient. I know how agonizing the wait can be. I interviewed with the 3rd name on my list because the others were busy. This is why you get many options/chances to schedule your meeting.

What you're going through is very common, so take a deep breath and sit tight! Good luck!

Just what I wanted to hear - thanks so much! Cheers.

Columbia asks for number of attempts GMAT

If it is the first time I am applying for Columbia, and I took the GMAT 4 times, can I just mention 3? I read that schools can only see upto the last 3 scores.

Thanks
