Just got the call! In for J-Term. Call came from an "unavailable" number, though.

Timeline:
Applied: October 6
Application Complete: October 7
Invited to Interview: October 28
Interviewed: November 6
Accepted: November 10

Does anyone know whats the interview/admission rate?

So far of ED applicants on this site this year who have interviewed, 23 have been admitted and 3 have been denied. So interview acceptance rate has been 88%, but there's probably some reporting bias in there.

I read on MBA Data Guru that's it's generally been about 58%, but it's probably higher for ED.

Sorry to hear that Target.

Do you mind sharing your profile and application complete date, so the rest of us that are eagerly waiting can benefit?

The first invites wont be out till early-mid December, as per last year but even ED for this year has seen some delayed interview invites. So you might see a bit later than usual application reviews for this application season.

Congratulations! You certainly deserve it! After all, the school doesn't accord special category to either the eager or the not so eager ones i presume!

Very best of luck! I am sure you'll do well.

Thanks chesterstreet. Have you scheduled your interview? If yes, how did it go? Do let us know. All the best for your interview and your other applications as well.

Well iam waiting [bold]for a couple of ambassadors [/bold]to respond to me. Would certainly share the experience once i am done with it. thanks.

For a couple? I thought we are only supposed to reach out to one at a time?

I reached out to two guys so far, who both said they were busy. Will write to a third tonight.

Ah. All the best, buddy. We're in the exact same boat (and cluster eventually, I hope )

Are you judging the Columbia network a little because of the interviewer response (I confess I'm tempted to)?

In the same boat. Considering a few people who submitted on the same day or earlier got dinged already, I'm not very hopeful.

I wouldn't judge Columbia by the interviewer responses. I imagine the correlation between that and responses to actually student/alumni emails are not that good. It's a totally different dynamic when you are responding to someone interested in learning about your company and profession vs. having to interview dozens of people who may or may not get into the program.

I agree with Allday028 's response. I dont think Columbia's process should be compared with the interviewr response as the interview page clearly states that the interviewers are volunteers. Columbia can only control the variables till the time they send you an invite and match you up with an alumni. After that it depends on when you send your email and how busy your proposed interviewer is with their usual routine.

Got an email from Columbia Business School that said "You're Invited..." and my heart skipped a beat.

Alas, it was for the Marketing Association of Columbia Conference

Continuing to keep those fingers and toes crossed! Good luck to everyone else waiting as well!

Perhaps do some linkedin research and find someone who might be interesting to talk to? The first guy I reached out to respond in 7 minutes, and just finished interview with him today.
He made 30 mins slot in his crazy schedule.

Typical 3 whys + why not kellogg/H/S, I think it went smooth. Now I just have to wait. Finger crossed!

Good luck to everyone here!
