Columbia Early Decision [#permalink] New post 02 Sep 2004, 14:20
Linda-

Do you know any information about the acceptance rate for Early Decision applicants to Columbia?

As the only one of its kind (that i know of), its an interesting proposition, because if accepted I could know before Xmas and take the rest of my time to save, relax, etc.

However, do you know what the stats are on acceptance rates for this?

If its at all like the undergraduate early decision process at top schools, the chance one will be accepted, given the requirement to pay a hefty deposit AND withdraw all other apps, has to be higher. But - by how much?

Thanks.

I haven't seen statistics for CBS' ED program. I did speak to Linda Meehan about it once and she said there is not difference in acceptance rates. The difference is that they are looking for students who are really committed to CBS, for whom CBS is their first choice. In that regard, it is NOT like the undergrad ED programs.

Also, it's not the only one. Tuck and Wharton both have ED programs.

Good luck!

While some might find this to be a distinction without a difference, these schools use different terms to describe their early evaluation systems.

Columbia: Early Decision

Dartmouth: Early Action

Penn: Early Option

This is more than an exercise in semantics since the deposit ranges from $750 to 5,000 depending on the school.

The decision date for the student also varies greatly among these schools since Penn allows one to wait until May 1, Columbia has a fixed three week response time, and Dartmouth has a response date of Jan 7.

One might not be that surprised that admissions officers are cryptic about the acceptance rates for early evaluation systems considering the controversy associated with similar systems at the undergrad level.
