Just got rejected after interview.

I thought my interview went pretty well. Does anyone know what kind of things they look for in it?


Sorry to hear about your decision. Do you mind sharing your profile? You definitely need to talk and make sure to have your application on the same page as to what kind of a profile do you want the adcoms to have of you. Sometimes with top schools it is more of a lottery than any rhyme or reason. All the best for your remaining applications.

Interviewer knew Columbia was my top choice as I gave clear reasons for why Columbia why Nyc. I also made sure she knew I was applying ED. She even commented "you have clearly done your research"

Only things I can think of which could have got me the ding was they didn't like my post MBA goal - IB or they thought I was too finance-y


Sorry to hear about that. I hear ya, it's frustrating that we don't get any feedback as to why we fail. Good luck on the rest of your applications.

Interview invite today.

Submitted on the 5th but last recommendation submitted on the 8th morning. Still hope for ED 10/7ers!

Just received an interview invite this evening. I had submitted my application a few minuets away from the early decision deadline on October 7th. There's still hope for anyone still waiting!

just got invited to interview at Columbia! Makes up for the ding by Wharton yesterday.

Applied:Oct 7th (11:55pm) (My recommender waited til 11:50pm to submit my recommendation : / )


I got an invite via email (see below). Columbia has always been my top choice; I have been checking my email like crazy.

Seeing posts here where people got interviews after applying on Oct 7th had me worried. Only thing that gave me hope was that I applied super late. Wish I would have applied two days sooner.


you just gave me new life! was it an ED application?


It was an ED Application. Best of luck MrJamesBond :)[/quote]

Thank you good sir! best of luck from London.

Seems to me that a flood of applications were submitted on the 7th.

With a lot of people only having complete applications after the 7th, a lot of invites should still come for deadliners.

Wishing you all the best of luck!

I think the key data point going forward is application COMPLETE date.

My application complete date is 13 Oct.

Latest application complete date I have seen is 8 Oct.
