The best thing for you to focus on would be to retake the GMAT and achieve a 49 in quant; 47 is 61st percentile which is a hair low for CBS. Raises some concern about your ability to keep up. You might also try your hand at the GRE.

If retesting is out of the question, do MBA Math which is a janky website but adcom takes the program seriously.They give you a transcript to send to admissions.
It's a self paced program that takes around 15 or 20 hours to complete. My clients have knocked it out in a weekend.

If you plan to submit R2 applications, which is wise, MBA Math might be best so you can allocate more time to the quality of your essays. It does not have the same weight as the GMAT or GRE, but investing time in your application is more of a sure bet.

Hey guys

Applied 09/18
Interviewed 10/08
'Waitlisted' 10/11


How is the average experience for people who got waitlisted in Early Decision? The message that I received says that my application will be considered again for Regular Decision, so it is not exactly a waitlist ....how does that work? Should I consider a certain rejection, but just a few months ahead?

Nice, thanks for that! That's very useful.

Yesterday I received an email from the admissions office scheduling a meeting next week to discuss the 'overall process'. What should I expect here? Should I prepare myself for a new interview? Should I bring something new to the table?

I plan to visit the school mid-November as I will be in NYC for work-related reasons. I'll bring that up during our conversation and contact a few students clubs so I can get the most of my trip.

Any light here is really appreciated.

Tks!

I applied around Sept 1 for regular decision. Does anyone know how long it is approximately until they move onto regular decision apps? I know they have to get through ED ones first but based on past years is it sometime in the next week or two or more like Thanksgiving or later?

Depends on how many apps they received. My friend last year submitted his RD for Columbia in August and waited till after thanksgiving before receiving his invite to interview. Which makes sense given that ED will probably wrap up first or second week of November.

Just got invited to interview!! I applied 9/30 and received my invitation to interview this morning :)

I know there's a lot of resources online that offer some great interview advice. Is there any advice in particular, or any particular resources, that people have found to be especially helpful?

Doing a couple of mocks will give you a lot of confidence and feel for the interview.
It's more often than not a very conversational interview. Answer what is exactly being asked, be genuine, and show your passion for the school.
And lastly, just relax and enjoy it (easier said than done). This is how you'll be able to put your best foot forward.
All the very best!

Hi guys!

Is anyone who has applied in ED awaiting a reply from columbia?

Is there any latest date by which you can expect the invites to go out for ED applicants?

I submitted my application on the deadline itself but kind of nervous now.

3-6 weeks response time
Just stick to that time frame. No need to worry yet.

They give you a call when they accept you and send you an email if it’s a rejection.

They say within two weeks. I would say usually within a week if they accept you.

Hi raps12,

I have personally seen a lot of applicants getting their acceptance calls anywhere from 3 to 12 days after their interview. So you certainly can expect a positive decision this week.

All the best!
