Feeling the pain of unresponsive interviewers! First choice is out of town, 2nd hasn't responded over 3 days, and just emailed the 3rd this morning. So much damn suspense haha


I had read about the unresponsiveness prior to receiving invite and now that I am invited I'm experiencing the same thing. 2 emails sent out with no response. I have to wonder though - CBS provided me with the ambassadors' CBS emails. Why on earth would a 2001 graduate still check his CBS email? Unless if he has automatic forwards set up, but I am still skeptical because I can't imagine someone seeing an email and just flat out NOT responding.

Perhaps if CBS took care of the initial facilitation of communication this would be a more seamless process. Either way - I came this far - I WILL set up this interview!


If the email is a @gsb.columbia.edu then that is a forwarding email. Mine forwards to my gmail account, same thing is true of my undergrad email. It's smart because it costs the school very little to maintain the forwarding email address but provides them a constant way of contacting Alumni for money/participation.

For those of you that have been accepted, when does the "clock start" on the two week deposit deadline? Is it the day they call you, or do they follow up a few days later with an email outlining the time frame, two weeks from then? Thanks


1st Deposit, $2k, April 22.
2nd Deposit, $1k, May 31.

I was expecting something more along the lines of '2 weeks' and was surprised to see such an extended window, particularly considering there are so many March decision dates. Thought CBS would try to beat other schools to the punch, in hopes of swaying people to commit. I'm pretty set on columbia, but do appreciate the breathing room, and potential financial leverage of other offers, though I get the impression they don't really negotiate much based on other school scholarship packages.

Interview is done. Super laid back, and included very candid dialogue about my interviewer's experience at CBS. The questions were standard - Tell me about your job, working in a team experience, why CBS, what about after CBS, contingency plan if you don't get in. I appreciated the candidness of the interview. Now all that's left to do is wait..

On a separate note, I received notice last week regarding a full ride to Notre Dame. I wanted to pick GMATclub members' brains on this. I realize ND is not regarded in the same caliber of schools as CBS, Duke, and Kellogg (my other options, if I am accepted), however, is the difference enough to justify $100,000 in student loans when I could be going to ND for free? ND was not my top choice by any means but I will definitely lose sleep over this decision if I don't receive a similar scholarship at other schools. If it helps, I plan to go into general management and strategy post-MBA.

Would appreciate any thoughts. :)



Congrats on the full ride. My thinking is this. I plan on going into consulting post MBA and was wondering what I would do if I got a full ride at NYU vs Columbia (if I got in). I think I would still go to Columbia. Call me a sap but I would go to where your heart is - when I close my eyes I envision myself on the 1 train and getting off at 116th street. I understand that scholarships are important but we are going to made enough money to pay back our loans within a few years of graduation, regardless of where we go.

Go to the best school possible. Unless its H/S/W and one of them gives you nothing and the other gives you $20k.

I finished all the application requirements on 2/15.
One of my recommendation (the last one) was submitted on 2/25.
Anybody out there have a guesstimate on when I should expect to hear back?

Thank you guys! :)


I've been lurking around here for a while trying to figure out when I should expect to hear back so I wanted to report my experience. My application was submitted on 2/7 with all required components including both of my recommendations. I'm happy to report that I was invited to interview yesterday, exactly 6 weeks to the day my application was complete. :-D :-D

Good luck to everyone still waiting to hear back and don't lose hope! :)

Best of luck to you too. I should mention I'm also a reapplicant this time around. It's my top choice for sure this year though so ED it is.

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.


By, it's only 1 essay I'm assuming you mean 1 additional essay? Re-applicants still have to answer the regular essay questions like every other applicant...

Okay, I should have been more specific. Last year the rule was that if reapplying within 1 year, then submit 1 essay stating how you have improved your candidacy and how CBS is the right fit and elaborate on short/long goals. It was 750 words.

This year I see that CBS has kept the same essay for re-applicants and kept it at 500 words and added a new part based on the video. They do not need to write Essay 2 (personal experience essay).

For people who are reapplying more than 1 year later, it is exactly the same as every other applicant.

if i apply for the early decision, will my application be in the fellowship evaluation or not ?



wondering the same too...but im 70% sure I will apply ED this year...(if i dont decide to postpone application exercise..)


Yes ED applicants are considered for fellowships. The fellowship deadline is simply the latest date by which you can apply and still be considered for merit based fellowship, not a distinct round strictly for fellowship consideration. Remember CBS does not technically have rounds, but rather rolling admissions with key deadline dates (i.e. Early Decision, fellowship consideration, last call).

I think finmaster means that's the time frame he is targeting. According to the CBS adcom, they don't review RD apps until they are done reviewing ED apps.
