I'd say try to get to know the school more by talking to alumni or current students, and mention this in the essays and interview. In fact, CBS online form asks whether we know any current student or not, and if so, we need to specify their names.

More importantly, as long as your essays have communicated clearly how CBS would help you reach your goals, that's all you can do.

For those admitted - after the call, how long until you received a status update on the online application?

For me it was one business day. (Found out on Friday, Update on Monday)

Continuing this trend... when others get access to the admitted students site?

It appears the admitted students site is still down. They also still haven't processed my check which they received 2 weeks ago now.

Definitely know how you feel. Fiancée is applying to residency, and even though we applied to many of the same regions, we have only gotten one city in common for interviewing thus far. Certainly makes it rough to keep planning. That said, as the other posters said, send her to Stern and ace your CBS interview! :)

Good luck! But did you really apply to 18 schools? Your poor recommenders o_O.

Ten thus far; sincerely lucky that they like me :lol: With medical school and residency placement, everything is done through an application service. So my fiancée applied to ~30 programs with the press of one button. Which leaves me (and my reccs) having to do everything one-by-one to ensure that we (hopefully) end up in close geographic proximity.

Has anyone had to wait >1 week for their interviewer to submit feedback? Mine seems to be MIA - he hasn't responded to my followup email, and on the day of the interview (last Tues) he told me he was submitting feedback that night.

I wonder what CBS does in the case that they never receive the interviewer feedback. Does that mean I have to interview again?

Also - I received my invite almost a month ago and it took three weeks to schedule something due to 5 people not responding; I'm worried that I'm being put at a disadvantage due to the rolling process (within the ED bucket, at least). I know patience is a must here, but the school itself urged that we interview within a month of the invite due to the rolling process.

Yes it is so nerve-wrecking..
I had an interview three weeks after the invitation. And my interviewer submitted the feedback after one week. Now i am waitig for the decision, worryig if i am in a disadvantage....
But there is nothing we can do now.. I think you need to wait until this weekend, and then contact him again.. If there is no reply, you can then reach out to school..

Hi,
I really don't think you can be put in a disadvantage in the ED round no matter when your application is complete. I spoke to the admissions people, who told me that 2-4 week time frame for interview is really to just speed up the process. They have PLENTY of spots before december...

Could those that have interviewed for ED and are awaiting a decision respond with details?

My feedback was submitted Nov. 1.
