Hey guys, anyone having trouble in reaching out to interviewer? I have re-matched three times, still haven’t heard back from anyone. Adcom helped me match with a very helpful alumni but he no longer lives in my region. It’s been a week now and I’m getting nowhere towards an interview... how bad is it? Is it going to hurt my chance?

Hi Hoagie,

I have heard quite a few cases where there have been a few difficulties in setting up an interview with the alumni. In fact this is quite common with Columbia. Rest assured this will have no bearing on your chances of admissions. Just reach out to the adcom again and explain them your situation. I am sure they will give you a positive solution.

All the best!

I received an interview invite on 23 September. The first interviewer wasn't available so had to cancel. The 2nd interviewer in not available too, though he has suggested a date after 12th October. Should I wait or cancel to find a new match? Does the delay in interview impact my chances...

Do you see ED admits get financial aid from the school? Or is majorly reserved to attract RD admits only?

Hey I also interviewed on the 23rd and had feedback submitted the same day - have you heard back yet? Figured we could connect and keep each other posted given we are on the same timeline. Feel free to PM!

Dinged after a great interview - pretty disappointed. Best of luck everyone!
(Note: This was pretty tough to post, looking on these forums it seems like acceptance after interviewing is a sure thing)

I was invited to interview on 27th and after that I reached out to two Alums but they were travelling till mid of Oct hence suggested to look for another one. After reaching out to third one Third interviewer also giving me time on 18th. I feel it is too late. Can someone guide what can be done? Does it lower my chances of admit if I schedule late as he has suggested? Further he has not suggested to look for another one as earlier two alums did. So I don’t think it is right to cancel with third Alum also. Should I reach out to adcom and tell them about this??

So sorry to hear that. Why was your timeline? After how many days did you receive the interview invite after submitting?

Good luck to your other applications!

Hi rohansdalal,

Sorry to hear about your challenges with pinning down an early interview. I recommend that you communicate with the admission team, explaining the situation. Let them guide you on what they want you to do.

Good luck!

Susan

I have reached out to adcom and sent them mail. I am planning to call them today if I do not get reply as my confirmation to interviewer is on hold. I do not want him to get any wrong impression by sending late confirmation.

Hi rohansdalal

That sounds like a great plan. It's only 9:13 AM Eastern Time (beginning of a workday), so I am sure the admissions team will respond to your message.


Best of luck!

Susan

Hi Rohan,

I think Susan has shared some great advice. In addition, if you need a reply sooner, you can call up the admissions as they are pretty responsive as well. I spoke to the adcom who visited India in July this year and she was incredibly helpful in answering any questions I had regarding the applications.

Hope this helps. All the best for your interview.
