Sorry about the rejection. Besides GPA and GMAT, your overall profile is really impressive. A slight increase in GMAT score (Quant score specifically) would certainly increase your chance of acceptance. Good luck for the re-application. Are you re-applying in RD round?

Completed app 9/27, notified of rejection via email and portal today 10/19.

UG GPA: 2.7, GMAT: 700.
I realized my undergrad GPA was low, but I had moved from the US to Europe and the Middle East at the age of 2, returned to the US for college at the age of 16. My entire education had been in French prior to college (French baccalaureate) and my first year in college is what caused my GPA to be low (I was also adapting from a small private french school to a huge undergrad college - UT Austin school of Engineering). I speak 5 languages and moved around in 5 countries growing up (the US, France, Switzerland, Lebanon, Turkey- I'm half Lebanese, half Turkish). I've been a software engineer and product manager at some of the best tech companies and also helped build a healthcare tech startup as part of the founding team, wearing many different hats including raising money, hiring, operations, building a team, strategic partnerships, etc. I've had 7-8 years of experience and have grown a lot (I'm 28). My GMAT was lower than their average but (45 Q, 41 V, 8/8 IR, 6/6 AWA) because I stressed myself out so much over the GMAT to offset my undergrad GPA, but I'd hoped my Quant skills could have been reflected in my extensive tech experience. My essays and rec were extremely strong and my goal was to transition to tech Venture Capital after my tech and entrepreneurial experience. In the end of the day I'm sad and CBS was essentially my only choice but I won't give up and will consider re-applying.

Hi, I'm a reapplicant in the same situation (applied 03/10). From my experience last year, the dings also come within 3 weeks usually. So no decision probably means no decision.

I am not sure about the mid Nov. - haven't seen any cutoffs like that - but naturally yes, probably we'll have a decision by that time.

When you are accepted via phone, do they tell you your fellowship/scholarship decision at that moment?

Nope, don't think so. According to last year's thread, they sent out an email to let people know once they started reviewing RD applications (that was mid-November).

Applied 10/3 and got my rejection today. Thinking maybe this is the last week for all the folks who applied ED? Good luck to those admitted and are still in the application pool!

For those who were admitted, how long did it take for the portal to reflect the decision after you received the call?

Got the call Friday afternoon and it became visible in my portal last night. My guess is that the portal reflects acceptances at the end of the business day following your acceptance call

Just got the email- they’re starting reviewing all regular decision applications today with the intent of finishing within 4 weeks (no more than 6 weeks)... good luck to all

I applied ED and interviewed on Nov 12th. While it's only been three days since then, I find it likely they've already made a decsion if they've begun assessing the RD applications as well.

Nothing reflects on the portal for now, fortunately.
