Also RD, applied on Sept 10. Didn't hear anything so far.


The admissions lady told me they review them all within 6 weeks, even RD. But the website says they won't get to them until December, so now I am confused.

Boa sorte.

It would be "within 6 weeks [once we start reviewing the RD pile after we're done with ED]", I'm pretty sure. For RD, it'd make no difference whether you applied in June vs. October 1.

The lady told me it's within 6 weeks even after I mentioned the website said after December 1st...so I'm confused as well...
I just hit six week mark for RD, so I guess I shouldn't expect anytime sooner.

I applied Aug 31st and am a bit over 7 weeks. I think they mean 6 weeks form when they begin reviewing RD apps.

Awesome man, congratulations! Do you mind sharing some more detail about your profile? And how was the interview process for you?


760 / 3.1 GPA from a top engineering college
4 yrs (at matriculation) WE in engineering with some international exposure
Goals are finance related to my field
Strong recs, strong essays (in my opinion!), pretty strong ECs that tie in well with my professional interests

My interview was very informal and conversational. A mix of resume, career goals, and why MBA/CBS. But as I said, very conversational with my interviewer talking about his experience at CBS and after. 45 minutes.

I highly doubt we will before December, though I wouldn't like anything more than that.

Congratulations. Mind sharing your profile?


29 y/o, Brazilian engineer from a top 5 University, Masters degree in Top 3 engineering school in France. I belong to no minority since I come from a Portuguese descent in Brazil, which is fairly common. After my masters, I joined MBB for two and a half years where I had quite a bit of difference experiences, from PE to mining in the Amazonian forest. After being granted my sponsorship, I went off to do a sabbatical year in a logistics company, owner of a start-up logistics hub where I have been working in O&G related business development.

Worked with an amazing Brazilian pair of consultants, HBS-alums. My essays truly reflected my career goals and my biggest passions. My rec letters reflected some of the best stories that I had with my supervisors. I am extremely excited to be a part of CBS and to live in NYC.

From my info session during the summer, the adcom lady was very clear that RD won't be looked at until November. Looking at last year's thread it seems that most don't hear about interviews until mid to late November at the earliest.

Just out of curiosity, did anyone submit anything interesting for the photo?

Since majority of the scholarships are merit based, what are the chances of securing one if your GMAT score is below average? Not much below average about 10-15 points.
