That's right.

I met a CBS adcom member who was in town and she said that the typical turnaround time this time of year is going at 3-4 weeks. FINGERS CROSSED!


Looks like someone on Livewire from Buenos Aires applied on 7/11 and received an interview invite on 7/22 for August ED '19. I still haven't heard back yet and I applied on 6/29 - would there be a reason it would take longer for me to hear back other than a likely ding coming my way? I'm guessing if I still haven't heard back, my app probably had to go to a 2nd reviewer, which is why it's taking longer.


Received interview invite yesterday, 7/27. Application was submitted / completed on Wednesday, 6/29

Let me know once you hear back! Like I said, I didn't hear back for 4 weeks so there is definitely a lot of time for ED applicants. Best of luck!

Any updates? Seems quiet recently.

It seems from last year and 2014's thread that CBS used to respond within 3 weeks (or even 2 weeks for those applied in June/July 2014). From what I've seen, most applications this year took around 4 weeks to hear an invite? Any ideas why? :?:

I'm an international who applied July 21 (ED for August 2017).

Had my interview on Wednesday morning and my interviewer said she submitted her feedback report the same day, but I haven't received an update that it's been submitted on my application - has anyone faced this problem or know someone who has had this issue in the past?

Turned out to be a marketing email for Chazen Institute..

Hey everyone! Seems pretty quiet. Has anyone heard back about interviews yet? If so, can you post a timeline from when you applied to when (and how) you were notified about the interview?

Sounds like they've been taking ~4 weeks to come back with interview decisions...in past years it looked like by the end of August they were coming back within 2-3 weeks. Hoping that's the case this year!

Submitted mine 8/10

No - nothing yet. It will be two weeks this Wednesday so I'm expecting to find out before then.

I faced a similar situation to you. No update on my application portal after confirming with my interviewer that the feedback had been submitted, then ~two weeks post-interview I received the admittance call. I received no application status updates between the confirmation of submission notification and my "Congratulations, welcome to Columbia" notification.

Thanks for the encouragement! I've literally been checking / refreshing my application status page 50-60 times a day - I'm having trouble concentrating on very basic tasks at work lol I'm hoping my situation ends up similar to yours!

Yup! Will post detailed debrief immediately once I hear back - trying to not over-analyze it now and freak myself out. General assessment is that it was a very casual interview with an alumna in a coffee shop. No questions were really a surprise - know your story, know your goals, know why CBS, know why NYC and you'll be great. I got pretty excited about CBS after our conversation - my interviewer definitely sold the school well.

Hi everyone - I just received my acceptance call! Beyond excited to attend CBS next year. I am actually a re-applicant who was dinged last year without an interview so I am beyond thrilled about this news!! Happy to discuss my process with anyone - just send me a PM.

I've listed my timeline below, and will post a detailed interview debrief this week

App Submitted / Completed: June 29th, 2016
Invited to Interview: Wednesday July 27th, 2016 @ 11:55 AM EST via email
Interview: Wednesday August 3rd, 2016 from 11 AM - 12 PM
Interview Feedback Submitted: Wednesday August 3rd, 2016
Acceptance Call: Tuesday, August 16th @ 4:21 PM EST via phone call

I was either rejected or waitlisted from all the schools I applied to last year. I took the GMAT 4 times. This is a long and grueling process, but if you stay true to your story, constantly seek feedback, continually work to improve, and never accept anything less than your worth...good things can happen. Best of luck to all applicants!
