The clients I've had who've been successful applying for the J-term were those who had a good reason for not wanting/needing the summer internship between the 2-year program's academic years (as the J-term doesn't have this break). This includes people who are either going back to the same firm they're currently with or going to a family business after graduation, or have some other valid reason why 1) the summer internship isn't relevant for them or 2) they would benefit from a compressed program.

Hope that helps!

HI, I wanted to know how does Columbia J term admission compare to regular 2 year one?

Thanks

I’m into my fourth week after submitting the application and still no interview call. Anyone on the same boat?

Are you an Early Decision applicant?

I don't believe they interview anyone who's NOT an ED applicant before they make decisions on that group, and their deadline is not until early October. I might be remembering incorrectly, though, but I don't think so.

If you ARE an ED applicant, did you get any respond when you submitted your materials that indicated how long it might be until you hear? Usually it is within 6 weeks, so you still have some time before it hits that point.

Hope that helps!

Thanks Erika. Yes I am an ED applicant. I don’t think I got a response after submitting saying it will take 6 weeks but I do remember reading it somewhere. However, I thought it would be quicker since I apply slightly ahead. Just being a typical paranoid applicant and wondering if the length of the wait indicates anything.

Trust me, I remember how agonizing the waits are!

But I think you're totally OK for now. I know that the normal rolling process is usually 6 weeks until either an interview invite or ding, but honestly with the ED they might wait longer until they have a critical mass to start reviewing closer to the deadline. So I wouldn't worry if you don't hear from them for a while still.

Submitted my application the day before. Any idea how long are the candidates for ED getting a reply back on the interview status? Is it 4 or 6 weeks?
