So a potentially dumb question (I'm starting to mix up all my apps/schools): if we submitted for RD, that means that interview invites won't come out until January right?
Just want to make sure I'm correct...
thanx :)

They don't start REVIEWING apps until Jan 7. Unless you were one of the very first to submit, I wouldn't hold your breath, might take a while.

OK everyone, I bit the bullet and TRIED to put together an applicant list on the first page of this thread. I've gone through every page of the CBS thread this morning and I think I've got everyone covered, but can't be 100% sure.

Please double check and let me know if any changes need to be made (missed an applicant, incorrect "ding/admitted" status, etc). Mods, feel free to updated/edit the list.

Wow - that IS early. I am jealous!

Great job with the first page. You can add me, I submitted for RD =]

Oh and I vote to change the "admitted" green to a darker green (I can barely see the current green). I think agold didn't apply to Columbia btw.

Hehe sorry. To be fair, I was one of the earliest Wharton dings and put "dinged" in bright red next to my name too. Dings won't mean doodoo when we get our first admits :)

Ok...I think it is time for me to buckle down and finally complete my Columbia RD application today. Has anyone checked out the Columbia Business Follies ads on Youtube? They are pretty great. I was involved in a very similar group during undergrad...if I go to CBS, I am definitely auditioning for this group.

I'm a fan of B-School guy vs. Law School guy:

this one is good too:

Question about recommendation/application....

One of my recommenders submitted his rec already, and I am planning on submitting my application in the next two days or so. If my 2nd recommender submits his recommendation next week, will my file be thrown into the pool of application received next week or this week?

Don't submit your application until both of your recommendations are in. That's what the Columbia instructions say on the first page of your application when you login - not sure if you saw this already.
