Hello Class of 2019!
Congratulations to all!

Quick question about the ED Deposit of $6000 to be paid to CBS...
I'm a domestic candidate and selected wire transfer as my method of payment. However, I'm confused as to who the 'beneficiary' is when putting in transfer details... is it Wells Fargo bank or Columbia University?

Additionally, if I have accepted my online reply form by putting in Wire Transfer as the method of payment... can I pay by check instead now or should I call admissions and make them aware.

This should be so simple, I feel silly asking these questions!

Thanks in advance! :) :)


No worries - I had the same question when I was wiring my deposit. I feel the instruction on the web page could have been more clear. I am international and I put Columbia University as the name of the beneficiary. The transfer went through fine without any issue. I think the account does belong to Wells Fargo but as long as you have the correct routing number and account number it should be fine.

As for changing the method of payment - I think it's fine as long as you let them know.

Hi all!

When does "Re Vera" appear on the to-do list? I've submitted my ED deposit, still no background checks on my timeline.. Does everyone go through one?

What's the consensus on pre-MBA tour vs pre-MBA internship? 8-)


I received the "Re Vera" task on my to-do list - I was admitted in August, but I doubt that matters. I submitted the release and payment for the "Re Vera" background check and let my recommenders know that they may be contacted. This may have been too early since I don't plan on quitting till next June....oh well :)

In regards to pre-MBA tour vs. pre-MBA internship, I think those are two distinct programs. Pre-MBA tour trips for CBS, I believe, include multiple trips that occur between May and August before Fall Term. I plan on going to 1-3 trips (likely 1-2 because I will so painfully in debt once MBA loans kick in). Pre-MBA internships can be done in addition to the pre-MBA tour trips (assuming you don't choose a trip /trips that overlap); however, from my research, pre-MBA internships more likely than not will need to be brokered through a connection / your network. There are official programs, but they are very selective so there is no guarantee. Personally, I would do one if it'll be a great AND different learning experience, but aside from that, the advice I've gotten is to enjoy the stress-free months before CBS takes over your life (in a good way).



Pre-MBA Travel

Maybe a bit early to start talking about this...but have other people started to think about plans before next Fall? Anybody thinking about pre-MBA internships, travel, etc... and when do you think you'll be leaving your current job?


I haven't started thinking yet but I definitely will as the new year starts. The CBS pre-MBA world tour sounds awesome from what I've read about previous years.

I'd like to finish my job around late May/early June, but I think saving money may convince me to work slightly longer...


Yup, i'm leaving my job end of March and then moving to part time until school starts. Have an italy trip planned and hoping to get a few more in. The summer of anon4444 is about to be legit af.

The detailed instruction regarding how and by when to pay the deposit should be in the admit e-mail from CBS.

Congratulations to everyone admitted!

Adcom called me to confirm my acceptance and mentioned that I would be able to log into the admissions portal later in the day. However, It's been 2 days and I haven't received any information about this. Anybody else in the same boat? Do I need to fill in the online reply form and pay a deposit before I get access?

Thanks!

Did you get an admit from CBS? If so, please update your CBS status to "Admitted".

Thanks.

It's from Hermes Society - a tumbler and a book, along with a congratulatory letter.
