I received an email stating that my decision will be delayed until next week. So more waiting until at least Tuesday. Has anyone else received such email this year? I did find a few similar cases in prior years.

It could just be that your interviewer could not submit their evaluation in time.

We exchanged a few emails afterwards, and he mentioned that he sent his feedback the day ofter the interview. Last year there were cases that were just reviewed late, due to the volume of applications. I also had my interview very early, only a few days after the interview decisions were announced, so I wonder if it's FILO-type process.

Just realised that we seem to have a very similar application profile :-D. Except that you got WL at HBS.


True :) PM me your background, I wonder if it also matches )


Your account doesn't allow PM (disabled). Enable it and PM me your details. This way, I'll recognise you when we meet at LBS! :-)

hey there - I had my interview early in March. I did not receive any Email about the admissions decision yet. Does that mean that I got rejected? Is it possible that they make their decision ofter the deadline?? don't know what to think about this... anyone experiencing the same thing??

I AM IN .. couldn't be happier to have the choice, although matriculating at GSB, but felt good to be given the nod from one of the top Business School globally

Wish London was a bit less snowy and less expensive ^_^

I am in a similar situation. They shared that my decision will be delayed. Quite unprofessional, if you ask me, considering that 1. we all paid the same application fee to fund the admission process, but receive varying level of service and 2. the admissions all went on vacation in late February/early March, and are now not able to meet the timing that they promissed.

Yes, don't really know... I did not even get a notice that the decision will be delayed... not really professional if you ask me... :(

Yep, just spoke with them and they said it would be in email now and another round in June. Congratulations!


What do they mean by "another round in June"? did they explain?


Didn't offer too much detail really. She said there would be another round of scholarships determined in June. Many schools offer merit scholarships upon admission and then fellowships at a later date, so perhaps that's what they meant? Sorry I don't have more details.


In, but no scholarship offer here. I really liked London, but it is the only school that has offered me zero dollars... Hate to make a decision based on price tag alone, but LBS is making it tough on me!

You have an amazing string of admits with $$. Where are you going to go?

I would never be able to turn down scholarships at some of the schools you have to choose from

Thanks... I do feel very lucky to have choices! I'm going to go to Berkeley-- full scholarship-- although will probably try to do an exchange my second year (trying it end up in the same country as my boyfriend at some point!).

I already have a degree from Columbia and live in NYC. I feel like I have a decent network here already, and I don't plan on going into finance. So for me, another Columbia degree won't add significant value compared to Haas... certainly not enough value to justify turning down a full scholarship from Haas in favor of a $30K offer from CBS.

I completely agree with this sentiment. Very unprofessional.
