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?
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.
