I would say ED if Columbia is your absolute first choice.

well, it's not really my first choice by virtue of them rejecting me last year... :P
i feel like re-apping is applying from a position of weakness, especially considering my app hasn't really changed THAT much since last year (decent jump in comp, 1 yr more exp, more sensible essays).

Then that's a decision you have to decide for yourself. You're a trader, risk and reward man :)

heh, completely true. i was looking more for a quote from a CBS admit person. i thought i had read somewhere that there was one round that was better for re-apps. my intuition tells me it's ED. ah well..

I'm in for ED. Question to other applicants:

For this part of the LOR:

2. Please provide a short list of adjectives describing the applicant’s strengths

Are you having your recommenders just list out 4 or 5 words, or are you having them substantiate each word with specific examples? It would make sense to substantiate it, but they seem to be asking for a short list w/o details.

Does anybody have any thoughts on the Masters Classes essay? Is it essentially asking about a time where you learned something by doing it without theory or at all? Or how learning by doing supplemented the formal training?

I would speak about a time when theory failed you. I.e. the models we built based on x showed that the company was supposed to do this... but due to y and z human factors, the situation unfolded much differently.

I would stick to what is asked for - a short list and that's about it. Adjectives themselves are self explanatory, so there won't be a need to explain.

Hi everyone. International ED applicant here!
I'm ready with my essays, but I'm a bit confused with the self-reported transcripts. I'm not really sure whether I should translate the name of the courses, and I don't know what informations to insert in the different fields of the downloadable .xls file.
I can see there is a "directions" link in cell B22, but it's not working. I've tried with different PCs and settings, but nothing helped. Anyone else has the same problem? Is there a way to find those directions elsewhere?
Thank you!

gnz1, let me try to tackle this one. The directions link didn't work for me either - So ignore it.
If there's room, I would put down both the original name of the course plus the translation, ie. enano lucha/midget wrestling. In the "department" section, follow the directions and "choose the best possible department from the list below." Basically select what you feel is the most appropriate category for that course. Everything else is pretty much self-explanatory. Hope this helps.

When I saw the post from xlick, I was expecting an interview invite already :)

I'm all set to submit with the exception of my recommender. Painful wait for both of us when it's out of our control.
