Columbia early decision / early 2nd round? [#permalink] New post 03 Oct 2010, 23:02
I plan to study MBA in Columbia for Fall 2011 and would like to know which round of applicaiton would be more advantageous to me (given my profile below), if there is any?

demographics: 26/female/HK
academic/ tests: GPA 3.3, GMAT 710, CFA lvl3 passed
job experience: working at a real estate private equity fund for 3.5 yrs
aspiration: to work for general private equity fund focused on sustainability investments post-MBA

almost all CBS alumni or current students said the acceptance rate for the early admission round is higher than the regulars. But one of them also suggested the possibility of applying early for the regular session given the rolling admission system and the fact that i would be hitting the END of the early admission where the seats are likely to be filled up by the time i submit my applicaiton (6 Oct). Alex, any view?

i'm also targetting to apply to NYU and Cambridge in UK (safety). Would you also recommend another "safe" school based on my profile that I have a reasonable chance to get in?

Many thanks !! Looking forward to your early reply.

Well, at this point you won't have a choice but to submit for Regular Decision if you're still asking whether to submit for Early Decision or Regular Decision - since the deadline for ED is tomorrow. Just submit it as early as possible, but resist the temptation to rush -- you're better off putting together a strong application than a rushed one, so long as you get your CBS application in before the end of December (and early January at the very latest).

If you're looking to stay in finance, look at Cornell and Yale as schools that are comparable to NYU in terms of "how hard is it to get in". Other schools to consider are LBS and Oxford -- LBS being about as difficult to get into as Columbia, and Oxford being comparable to NYU.
