This is sad. Best of luck with the rest of your applications guys.

I am really surprised that they are not even waitlisting excellent candidates, but rather just throwing them straight to the ding pile.

Solaris & SNG,

Man, I'm really sorry to hear the news. I know we shouldn't dwell on it so I'm just going to encourage you to kick butt on all your other apps. Get into HBS or Stanford instead! CBS (and I) will have missed out because of this... all the best, guys.

Best, TienyC

Sol, SNG sorry to hear this..

Can we quickly put together a comparison of profiles of those who were admitted vs who got dinged ..just to get an idea of what CBS is looking for this year.

This really just seems like a sign of the times when 3 solid applicants get dinged from CBS ED. I hope everyone else is bracing up for a really difficult year.

yeah... agreed. It's going to be tough.

If people who applied early, with solid stats, who interviewed!, get dinged... what's left for the rest of us?

Will see. :-/

Sorry to hear about the dings fellas; Unfortunately this is the reality of the process. Most of us will experience a ding sooner or later. But keep persevering - that one admit makes it worth it.

Does any one else think that Columbia might end up selecting fewer students from ED... Maybe the adcoms believe that RD will have stronger applicants due to the economic crisis...

Comes to mind seeing so many genuinely interested studnets being dinged

also, from reading posts from last year I remember people getting waitlisted or deferred. Now it seems more In or Out.

Is it?

I doubt it. Columbia has always been very conscious of its yield numbers (its yield is higher than all other schools other than H/S), so it's in their best interest to select quite a few ED applicants. I think this proves that the applicant pool is that much stronger or larger this year compared to years past.
