Congrats to all those accepted. Look forward to getting in touch with my future classmates :)

I probably had one of the quickest turnaround time here. I am a reapplicant though. Truly admire the speed of the adcoms at CBS.

Submitted: 31/08
Accepted: 12/09

They didn't interview me this year. They considered my last year's interview.

Have there been any dings yet or are they waiting to send out all the acceptances and waitlists before doing that?

Wazzup - When did you hear back?

I'm now waiting on my final decision, I interviewed on Tue evening (10/29). Feedback was submitted that same evening. Fingers crossed.

Ahhh this is frustrating! I am in the waiting boat. Assuming that it isn't a good sign.

Anyone apply on the deadline and been dinged yet? Do people know if they normally have you wait the six weeks?

Does anyone know of any FB group for admits? Or any pre admit events? Frankly haven't seen a single thing to identify other students except the posts here.

I was just accepted to the J-term program this week, but I've applied to a couple other programs that start next fall and the notification date for those isn't until December. Does anyone know when you have to commit to J-term program? I'm ecstatic to be admitted to CBS - just wondering if I will be able to hear from other schools at all.

I think the commitment is 2k now and 1k by Nov 15, so total of 3k. I think its a good bet to just pay the deposits, start the process and still wait to hear from other schools and make a final choice later. In the long run, the 3k will be <3% of your total cost and will be more than made up by the extra months you work before going to Chicago/Kellogg.

I'm in a similar boat, so playing it safe by covering my bets.
