Of course, people apply well into April.

CBS extended its full-time application deadline to June 1st just FYI

Are people even applying this late? June is a long time away! Does it mean they actually have enough spots?
And normally are applications even submitted this time of the year?

I wonder whether CBS will follow Kellogg and allow applicants to appeal or reapply?

This is kind of major; it's quite an opportunity if you are willing to bet on the Covid situation being sorted by September, which I think it must. So this is totally unprecedented. They are still sticking to their standards but it's obvious they are trying to drum up applications and they will be going deep into the waitlist.

If you need an internship I would recommend putting in an application ASAP but before the deadline of June 1; usually the deadline is in April.

If you don't need an internship, you might apply to January term, that application opens in June. The acceptance rate is usually higher for J-term but given the Covid situation that might not be the case this time around.

I could tell they were anxious for the GMAC to get the virtual show on the virtual road, mid-April, but keep in mind you can do the Executive Assessment ie GMAT light. Maximum of 2 attempts but still it's a good option.

This is going to be the situation for a lot of top business schools so Round 3 is going to be more viable than ever.


A few weeks have passed now. If they need that many deposits they'd need to accept at least 150. Have we seen acceptances trickle in on the tracker?

Based on the tracker, Cheesybird Gilborg and myself have submitted applications within the last week. I guess we'll get a good idea as to what this is looking like when/if interviews go out for those of us who applied so late in the game.

For those that have applied in the last couple of weeks, has anyone heard back on interview invites? At this point, what's the average time between application submission and an interview invite for those that have decided to take advantage of the deadline extension?

I applied on 4/12 and have not heard back in form of a ding or an interview invite. Looking at the tracker, it doesn't seem anyone who has applied in the last few weeks has heard anything back yet.

Any interview invites for those that applied in April?

Seems as though none have come out lately beyond the differed admissions.

How much time does the adcom at CBS take to evaluate the application and come back with the next steps?

Anyone know if they actually ended up admitting that many in this extended round? Or do they still have openings left?

My understanding is that they are still accepting applications until June 1 and that there are still places available. Not sure if others have been contacted who applied during the extended round but I was told to expect to wait 3-5 weeks prior to being contacted. I would expect that these timelines may be slightly truncated due to the fact that Fall is fast approaching but I guess it depends on the number of applicants that they need to screen.

If Columbia is still seeking a ton of applicants....Does this mean they're going to lower their standards and the class is essentially going to be 'sub-par' from all the other classes they've accepted in the past? Basically instead of cream of the crop students, it's just going to be a bunch of students that normally wouldn't have been accepted in the first place?

Considering how top programs regularly get significantly more qualified applications than they can possibly admit in one class, I can’t understand how anyone would assume a program would suddenly have to resort to “subpar” candidates. It makes even less sense when you consider the waitlists they build exactly for late-stage seat filling.

Anyone have any sense of how big the WL is and if Columbia plans to go to it? Applied late and just got waitlisted, curious what my chances are.

Hi @stevester77

My understanding is that the waitlist can go up until a few weeks before start date. If you have other offers. You should call them and push them for a decision.

Question - when did you apply?

I applied May 26 and haven’t heard anything yet.
