It has been very quiet in here this month... any interview invites or acceptances recently?


Had my interview on 8/18. Feedback submitted 8/20 ... so hopefully I have some news soon



Any specific area of focus in the interview? Also how long is the interview generally?

Just trying to gauge what to expect as it would be my first interview. Thanks in advance

How's the timeline looking for those of you applying ED lately? I'm hoping to have mine in by this weekend and I'm wondering if I'll know anything prior up some of the early October deadlines.

Very casual, 1 hour total. Just chatted about life and what I wanted to do but I made sure to talk about how much I wanted a Columbia MBA, not just a regular MBA.

Lurker190, MBOUTDAT , do you mind sharing your profile (whatever you want to mention) for bringing everyone upto speed as to what kind of profiles are getting accepted by Columbia.

To all the admitted students for Fall 2016, please post something about your profiles so that applicants such as me who still have to submit the applications, learn about the application process.

Details can include:

Your pre-MBA employement, how long etc
Your education , GMAT, GPA etc.
Post MBA goals (if you are comfortable)
Did you hire admission consultant (if yes, a sentence or two about your experience or the link to your consultant review if you have posted one on GMATCLUB).

Thanks

Has anyone faced the issue of recommenders not getting their emails? . Either my company's mail servers are blocking them or CBS's servers are not sending them. I'm not sure what is happening, Should I contact the AdCom?

Will they send a direct email (not an automated one ) to the reccomender's official mail id?. Maybe the spam blocker will not get triggered? :(


Just wanted to say I followed juniper's tip and called the AdCom and things worked out.

First time poster, long time reader of all the Columbia threads...

Just finishing up my first (and hopefully last) app, the Columbia ED.

Here is my profile, I'll keep this thread updated with my timeline as it looks like I'll be in the first 5 or so applicants on gmatclub for this year..

GPA: 3.5 from top 25 school Business admin degree
W/E: 3 years MM IB then 1 year Corp Finance with an engineering company
GMAT: 750 1 take
Recommendation: I know one will be very good (CBS grad), the other I am 90% will be good but risk b/c he might not understand the MBA process as well.

Plan on turning everything in next Tuesday.

Does anyone know whether Columbia allows updates to your application following submission?

No, unfortunately, the application prompts explicitly indicate that you cannot make changes after submission. What are you needing to change? Perhaps if it is a informational error (vs. revising an essay), Adcom will allow.

I haven't submitted yet, but I was curious about how something like a promotion or a job change would be handled.

You should probably contact them directly with that question. Surely you can provide that information after submission, even if it's via email.
