That is exactly when I submitted my application. Crossing my fingers.

Congrats on getting an invite.

Thanks for the update guys. It looks like adcom is just getting wrapped up with october RD applications. I submitted on November 30th, so I may not hear back until mid-January regarding an invite.

I love Columbia... Atleast they appear far more professional and quick to review and update than other schools (read: Sloan, LBS, Stan etc). The most professional definitely are HBS, Booth, etc... But Columbia is a close 2nd... I have seen people invited to interview within 2 weeks of submitting in some cases....

Anyways are there any internationals here?? What are you guys thinking of the lack of no-cosigner loans? In my country (India) educational loans are charged at ~13% interest rate, and the limit typically is ~\$80k..... no wonder Columbia's applications dropped 20% this year...

Being in the financial capital of the world, it surprises me they cant get this loan in place... It is almost like they simply dont want internationals from third world countries

I submitted my app last week but my recommender didn't submit til Sunday.

If I get an interview invite I expect it won't come until mid jan. Waiting is really the worst part of the whole process

Just got my welcome packet in the mail with info on the Columbia Connect events. Also included a subway map and CBS thumb drive. Getting excited for school and it's still 9 months away.

Does anyone know if it's a common occurrence to have difficulty scheduling an interview with one of the school's ambassadors? I got my invite on Monday but as of today, two of the three interviewer matches have told me that they cannot do it while the third hasn't responded to my initial email on Monday. I re-submitted my request through CBS's application website and received the same three interviewers again!

I've heard that this is common. For my own anecdote, the ambassador on the top of my list's e-mail kicked back to me as undeliverable. The second ambassador replied on the same day and we had the interview that very weekend. Probably very hit or miss.

Wow! That surprises me. You would think admissions would vet the contact information before sending it out to interviewees...

Hmm. Virtually all the RD invites have gone out to those who submitted in October. I guess they haven't gotten to the november pile yet.

Any movement on the J-term WL?

not here. the waitlist letter says they will get back by Dec 15, but I heard from admissions that this can extend up until classes start... #anxiety

Nothing new here either. I don't have very high hopes now, to be honest.

just received a ding notification for J-term .. Good luck for everyone who is still on waitlist
