I'm also interested in this. For MBA application how much "plus" will I have if I am an alum of the university? Anybody has an idea?

In for ED. Hoping to get into its value investing program. Anyone interested in this program as well and know how competitive is it to get in (I know it admits 40 students annually)?

Looking at GMAT scores for people on this thread makes me think I will have a hard time to get in. The only plus I have is that I am a Columbia alum (got my masters in a quantitative field). Wait...is it a plus?

Of course there should be a difference, but, again, there a re no patterns that determine interview questions. The best way is to start from the:

1. Analyzing one's strengths and weaknesses is a good place to start. Reapplicants have to show they have grown and are better applicants than they were before. Analyze your weaknesses.

2. reapplicants need to sit down with applications and go through each section to determine where they need improvement. While many business schools—even those that say they do not offer feedback—will give rejected applicants some clue about what kept them from receiving an acceptance letter, reapplicants still have to reflect on their weaknesses.

Asking questions, such as "Who are you today?" and "Where have you come from since the last application?" can help you retell your story more compellingly and update the admissions committee.

Monday I've been interviewed for the 2013 program (j-term). On the evening my interviewer wrote me that he had just submitted his feedback. Hovewer my status hasn't been updated yet. I supposed that as soon as the interviewer submits the feedback the status should turn "complete". Am I wrong?

Hi, even9net, it will take a couple of days to turn complete, can I ask when did you submit and when did the status went under review and when did you get interview invitation?

I am a reapplicant from last year's ED ding. I requested them for a feedback and they refused. I had emailed them though. I dont think calling in will change the outcome. But, just in case you get a different response, do let us all know.

All the best.

Hi even9net, congrats on the interview already! Good luck. I submitted recently for the J term and am waiting for my recommenders to do their thing now.

They opened their app on May 12. How did you get the essays done so fast to submit on the 14th!? Amazing stuff...

I'll apply by October but haven't decided whether to apply ED or not. Does it make a difference to apply ED?
