I thought I'd get this thread started since the Columbia application will be live in June, and those shooting for the early decision might like to get started early.

I am happy to collaborate and bounce of ideas for a strong application; let's not do this in a vacuum! Join CBS Chatgroup

Yes I absolutely recommend that you switch to the GRE at this time, because they have a whiteboard available.

As I understand is a lot of pressure on the GMAC to make a whiteboard available but it's worthwhile for you to move forward now.

Manhattan GMAT has a mock exam on their site.

I have several candidates where they just could not crack the GMAT and they switched to the GRE, and even without any further preparation they just aced it. and went on to Wharton, CBS, etc.

If anyone out there is considering the sunk-cost they've made it to the GMAT, and reluctant to switch, please give it yourself the chance to pivot so you can accelerate the timeline ob all of this.

You have more time to work on your essays and applications. The more time you have to work on your applications the better they will be and the better your odds will be, as well.

Thank you for the reassurance!

Since my Verbal score is at 39 I do think GRE might be a good fit; GMAT with its online whiteboard just doesn't seem practical!

Moderators - Can we use this thread for evals as well??

For profile evaluations, please use this topic. We don't want to mix profile evaluations with applicant questions :)

From the PersonalMBACoach blog, I see that Columbia changed Essay 3 and kept Essay 1 and Essay 2 the same as last year.

Essay #1: Through your resume and recommendations, we have a clear sense of your professional path to date. What are your career goals over the next 3 - 5 years and what, in your imagination, would be your long-term dream job? (500 words)

Essay #2: Why do you feel Columbia Business School is a good fit for you? (250 Words)

Essay #3: Tell us about your favorite book, movie or song and why it resonates with you. (250 Words)
