Got the call this afternoon! No mention of any scholarship, but I'm not really expecting one.

What a way to end the year!

Congrats!

When did you interview?

For everyone who is interested I interviewed on Friday Dec 20th. The interviewer submitted his feedback the same day.

Scratch that, just checked the application portal again. I missed it before, but there was a line that said "An update to your application status was posted on 12/19" and a link. I got dinged. Oh well, on to the next!

My understanding is that this is essentially never provided.

Just for the information of the broader community, it appears that the R2 deadline has been extended due to inclement weather. Here's the tweet from CBS:

MBA Admissions will be closed tomorrow due to inclement weather. We are extending the merit based fellowship deadline to Wednesday January 8. Please let us know if you have any questions!

All the best everybody!

For everyone who have not submitted their application yet and would like someone to do a final review of your essays or resumes, I would highly recommend using MBA Girl Journey. I used her essay review service and she provided immensely useful feedback that pulled my essays from average to excellent. Without her help, I would not have received an interview invitation - this I am absolutely sure about.

MBA Girl Journey is not a professional consulting service but the feedback she provided on my essays far surpassed the feedback I received from a professional consultant that I paid thousands of dollars for. While the professional consultant merely moved some commas around and cut down on my word count, MBA Girl Journey provided thoughtful feedback on where she thought my answers were not clear, lacking, or just needed improvement. She will NOT tell you what to write but she will let you know what is good and what isn't, with an objective point of view. Not to mention her services are really affordable, starting at \$39!

Folks - Who are planning to submit the app by today EOD hurriedly - sit back and do not hurry....!

Here's what Columbia has to say -

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 8 AT 11:59 PM EST.

P.S: This is NOT for those who're ready to hit 'Submit'...

Congrats! When they called they told you about the merit scholarship? Just wondering if there was no mention during the call if that means no scholarship.

You can always send the official score report to Adcom when you've it but for now your're supposed to upload unofficial score report and I assume you did it otherwise application would have thrown an error message...!

BTW, if you've selected CBS as one of your 5 schools where the official GMAT score is to be reported then automatically GMAC will send it to the school within 20 days from your test day.

Admitted today. I got an email at around 6am Singapore time (5pm Eastern) asking if I was awake. (I was, because I was planning to hit the gym.) Confirmed that I was, and got a call from Columbia congratulating me on being admitted with a fellowship.

For those who are keeping track of such things, application submitted on Oct 9, last recommender sent his recommendation in on Nov 30, invited to interview on Dec 27, interviewed on Dec 30 (interviewer feedback submitted Dec 30) and admitted on Jan 8 (Eastern time).
