Congratulations! I am in my 4th week since application but haven't heard anything. Is 3 weeks the norm or the exception?



Many people on Beat the gmat have also mentioned roughly 3 weeks from a complete application (i.e. all documents, essays, recos etc).

Would submitting J-term CBS application by late September/early October be a dealbreaker due to rolling admissions?

Nope. I think most people submit in late Set/ early Oct. You should be fine.

I submitted 9/5 and just got the interview invite yesterday (9/24). Took just about 3 weeks for me as well.

Congrats. I submitted mine on 22nd, but hasn't heard anything back. Most likely a ding!

I am sending in my app on Monday. Currently working at a family business so the J-Term format is ideal for me.

Does anyone know how severe of a penalty there is for applying this late in the rolling admissions?

Had my interview this weekend...from what I've read I should be hearing back within 10-11 days. Has that been the case with those of you who've interviewed?

It's difficult with Columbia since the J Term is a virtual extension? And we sort of want people of the same year to be in the discussions?

If you guys want, I would be happy to change the topic name to 2015 if that makes more sense...

Please let me know!

Falconer,

Any news on your interview?

I applied on Monday and just heard back that I am getting an interview today. Guess they are moving a bit quicker with things now!

Could you change the name to class of 2015?

I don't get what you mean by it being a virtual extension? The J-term is simply a later start for the class of 2015, thats all!
