Finally got a response, no luck this time unfortunately.

I remember someone previously mentioned how Columbia tends to prefer older candidates, and I've read this before as well. Does anyone have a sense of average age/work experience? For reference I would've had 3 years work experience (upon matriculation) which I know is on the low side.

Glad the wait is over though!

I'm really sorry to hear that, good luck on the rest of your applications. Columbia's average age is higher than some other top 10 schools, so it seems so. May I ask - what day did you submit your application?

I submitted my app on October 4th, so most likely a lot of posters will hear something soon.

My guess would be early-mid January. People from mid October still haven't heard yet.

I really hope they start sending out invitations again soon. I'm worried about finding an alumni to interview with during the holidays. With R2 coming up, I was hoping to hear back before I would have to submit any other applications!

Does anyone have an update from Columbia on timing? I just got dinged from Wharton today after an interview, and was really hoping I would've heard about an interview for Columbia by now. From LiveWire, it seems like they've only gotten through October 10... I applied early November

I also applied in mid-November and am hoping we'll hear back before the holiday season! Would be nice to know if I'm moving on to the interview or if it's time to make a decision between the remaining schools...
