GL - I interviewed more than a week ago and look forward to hearing my decision this upcoming week. Hope you get yours sooner!


Yeah, I feel for you. Looking upthread, it's kind of tantalizing to see those situations when the yay/nay comes within a day or two of the interview feedback being submitted. Especially now, my guess is that the timeline is going to be a little longer because I assume they are still working through the crush of applications from early January.

Looking at the GC data (which I know can't be assumed to be a representative sample), it looks like about 55% of those interviewed are being accepted. (Assuming that those who had interviewed status of more than a month ago were denied and didn't update their status). That's probably a touch high, but still. I flipped a coin and it came up heads, so I'm assuming that means I'm in. Do you think I should call CBS and inform them of the results of my coin flip?

Ya I think you should def tell adcom about your coin flip - they'll appreciate your humor and taking the process loosely :) I wish there is some data that correlates yay/nay decisions to how many days after interview report is submitted. Most of the cases I've heard where it's a positive decision they received it less than a week after interview. And I'm pass that mark............ :(

Nah, I don't think they work like that. See:

Hi All,

Long-time lurker first time poster - this forum has been such a wealth of information, this is the least I can do to give back.

Application Complete: 12/20
Invited to Interview: 01/23
Interview Conducted: 02/12 (took forever to find an alum who would respond!)
Feedback Submitted: 02/12
Acceptance: 02/25 (4pm EST)

The admissions committee spent 13 days on my decision (though including 2 weekends and the President's Day, to be fair), I had almost lost my faith when I saw somebody with a later Interview Feedback submission date receive the decision before me last week. But it all worked out in the end... :)

Just received my acceptance phonecall at the end of last week. It took nearly 14 days after my interviewer feedback was submitted to receive the decision. Don't lose hope during the waiting period!

See you at CBS in the fall.

Does anyone know if they call/post decisions on specific days of the week? Or is it throughout the week? Also, do the decisions come in waves or is it pretty steady?

Was just about to post something to finalgears' comment about waiting for longer than 1 week, and saw that you beat me to it already!

As for decisions, they come out throughout the week, or so I've observed. For some reason I see a lot of postings for people who received their acceptance calls at 9am, noon - 1pm, and 4pm EST (mine was a few minutes after 4pm too). But those are just casual observations at this point.

I didn't even think of leaving it blank as an option lol. MBA applicants are type-A ppl who take advantage of every opportunity, right :)

I just had a friend who was a professional photog take some photos of me in a suit and picked the best one.

I may not be type-A, rather type B, becasue I DID consider leaving it blank because it was optional and I have no professionnal photog friend, :)
But I am trying to find some good picture of mine

Yep, looks like it's taking the full 2 weeks these days. Better back off my anxiety, as I still have another week left.
