question on re vera-was looking in app and bonus in my first year was off by a nominal amount (VERY nominal amount-and I stated it was below what it actually was, so not like I am trying to make myself look great, this makes me look better...realized after the fact I had looked at data that was slightly off)-do you think this is cause for any concern? Probably best if I just wait and see if it actually presents any issue?

I don't think so but then again I started this in late October, they asked for verification of my military service January 4th and I haven't heard from them since so it seems to be an agonizingly slow process. I have no idea whats going on right now, but based on what I have heard no news is generally good news. It will just be easier when its all complete and there is resolution.

To my understanding Revera typically tries to reconcile the amounts and understand the source of the figures you quoted on the application. There may be minor variations such as those based on difference in income currency and your assumption of exchange rate etc. However, if they are not able to reconcile / get satisfactory explanation from you, they will report the matter to CBS adcom without a verdict. Then adcom figures out what to do with it. Key is that there should be an explanation.

As noted by others here, you get a notification from CBS admissions office once the verification is complete.

Not an issue. Same thing happened to me. I asked my reviewer and they said that they have leeway built in for things like this. Unless it was egregious e.g. you said your bonus was \$1m when it was \$100k, don't worry about it at all.

Edit: I have passed the Re Vera process

For what it's worth I had a difference in my actual vs reported, my base was lower but my bonus was higher. Net, revera asked me to simply provide proof of the rough breakdown. I wouldn't stress...

This is probably a dumb question but i wasn't sure on the next steps after receiving an offer ….

After admittance are you supposed to accept the offer and complete the online enrollment form even if you are still waiting to hear from other schools later in March? Is acceptance of the offer binding? Or are those of you in the same position not giving your response until you hear decisions from all other schools?

Yeah... I think that's all clearly explained for you if you read the information provided

I'm planning on waiting until I make a decision to complete the enrollment form. There's no point in confirming enrollment and then having to backtrack but I don't think your spot is reserved either way until you pay the deposit.

All of the information is available on the Facebook group. It is a secret group to maintain your privacy in case you are still undecided about schools or haven't told an employer. If you need access there is a "Request Access" portion on the CBS Admitted Students website.

Third it. At the very least, it'd be nice to know if all awards have been dispersed so we can plan loans / financing appropriately... this is the only part of CBS' application process that I think is a bit wonky

I was ED and got my need-based aid award today (it was pretty small). I am still waiting on merit-based aid.... very frustrating. According to the admissions office, merit-based aid can be given out through August.

Would it be possible for you to share how much they offered as need-based aid? Just trying to see how much they are shelling out on an average..

Sure, they give me 10K/semester. I was hoping for double that. but I don't have anything to benchmark to so maybe that was wishful thinking on my part.
