Got the call today! Could not be happier! CBS has always been my first choice. :-D Thanks to everyone here who kept people posted on timelines. It helped manage expectations throughout the process.

Well that doesn't make me feel too good. I interviewed a day before you, and feedback was submitted the same day.

I thought the interview went pretty well :? :!:

Congrats to you though!

Do not despair - I got the call exactly 2 weeks after my feedback was submitted. I too was freaking out because others heard back before me with later interviews, but the timelines are not set. Stay positive.

I would say the same, be cool. I was feeling stressed because people that had their feedback submitted as late as 5 business days after me got the acceptance call before me, but here I am. :-D

FAQs on the admissions website say they start reviewing RD applications in November, but then on the Review Process page it says they don't start reviewing until December 1st...

I would assume the latter is correct, only because I think it is more likely that they did not update the FAQs as opposed to the Review Process page. Also, the first instance I could find in last years of an RD candidate getting an interview was Dec. 3. If anyone has info otherwise, would be interested to hear.

I think they will not start RD until they finish ED and J-Term. Since the last ED decisions were submitted by October 7th. We can expect the FIRST RD DECISION made by December 31st (most likely several weeks before that) due to the fact that all ED decision should be made by November 18th and they say that the typical application lifecycle is less than 6 weeks.

That's just my educated guess though.

Indian and applied to ED on 6th Oct around 9 pm. Nothing yet.

Should I consider that as a ding?

Can we write to the admission office to check the status?

Relax guys, we will hear when we hear. No point jumping the gun and bugging Admissions for this.

I don't want to be a downer, but realistically, I feel like it's over for ED. It's gone well beyond the 21 days, so I think a ding is incoming.

This is nerve wracking!!

I am from Hong Kong, completed my application on the 7th, and haven't heard a word from Adcom since. I aspire for a career in investment management, so Columbia is my first choice. I really want to get in. :cry:

Any international applicants here who have applied on 10/7? Have you guys heard anything?

Agree. But I have heard even the dings come out in 3 weeks generally. Most of us waiting here are international applicants, so maybe they are doing some more due diligence on us :p
