To the admitted people here: I read somewhere on this forum about a Facebook group a few weeks back. Is there a CBS 2015 group up that I can't seem to find?


I couldn't find a CBS '15 Facebook group either so just started this: http://www.facebook.com/groups/cbs15/

All admitted students (who are matriculating) please join! It would be great to start getting to know the other admits and even find people in our local areas to meet up with.

How long do you normally wait to follow up with the interviewer? My interview was 2 days ago and the interviewer said she would fill out the form right after the interview.

Am I supposed to receive an automatically generated e-mail once she submits the feedback? None so far...


Yes, you will get an automatic status update e-mail once your feedback has been submitted.

I would wait for at least 2 weeks before reminding your interviewer about submitting the feedback. They are busy people and you don't want to come across as a pest. I had my interview on Oct 30 and my feedback was submitted yesterday (Nov 7).


Thanks. Do you guys know how important the interview is? 10%...20% of the decision? Mine went incredibly well and obviously I am anxious for the interviewer to submit feedback as my story is fresh in her mind.


I think it's impossible to assign a number to the interview, but I've always understood it to be a "truthing" exercise. Unless you've made some effort to visit campus and meet adcoms, the interview is the school's only opportunity to assess your interpersonal skills and get a feel for your real-life personality. I would imagine that most interviews are arranged to either (a) confirm that a strong applicant is indeed strong in person and (b) confirm that international applicants are strong and comfortable in English. I'm sure that many are a combination of both. Twenty percent seems like a reasonable weighting I suppose. While I think a strong interview could rescue an on-the-fence application, I also think a weak one could kill a strong application.

Wow, congrats - was that scary? I've been dreading a status update email given that I've interviewed with feedback submitted. Do you mind sharing your profile?

I should have mentioned that I am starting J-term in January. Perhaps that influenced my applications strong turnaround.

I got an email today saying that I hadn't submitted my interview data yet so I must be having trouble getting an interview setup with the interviewers they assigned and they are going to waive the interview requirement and evaluate my application as is. Good or bad? The funny thing is that I just heard back from an alumni today and got an interview date but when I go to put it into the system it's already removed the interview info section from my app. Any thoughts?

Strange - I would call the admissions office about that.

Darn, I applied for ED but I've been waitlisted. Final response to be given by Feb 2013...

Anyone know what are the odds for me at this point? Or are all ED applicants who interviewed get waitlisted or do some actually get dinged?

Sorry to hear that - I feel like I've seen lots of direct dings in my review of old posts and old threads. Do you mind sharing your timeline and profile?

J-term,
Submitted 9/29

Interviewed 10/20
Interview feedback 10/27
Admission 11/8

Good luck to all of you.

Thanks. The update email scared me to death; I was expecting a call not an update email, which I thought was a ding message.

My profile:
Female; 3.5 GPA undergrad; GMAT 710; 2.5 yrs in consulting industry and 1.5 yrs in civil engineering industry
For those who haven't done interviews or submitted application forms, my suggestion is to express your passion to the school as much as you can.
Good luck to everyone. :)

Hi Lalala - I saw that your interviewer submitted their feedback 1 week after you initially met. I'm coming up to that timing as well. Did you reach out to him/her after a few days to remind them, or just left them to it after your "thank you"? I know the rule of thumb is to give them some time since they're busy professionals, etc. etc., but I'm understandably anxious to move on to the next phase of the admissions process...
