Hi

I am planning to apply for the J Term. Would be very grateful, if anyone could inform, when the application usually goes live?

Thanks and Regards

Hi there,

I just spoke to Columbia's admissions office today and they said that the application will go live "very soon, within the next couple of weeks." So keep checking back!

Best,
Melody

Dear Melody,

Thank you so much for your kind response. Really appreciate it !

I had a further query. I had selected 2017 as the start date when I registered at the CBS website.

Just wanted to check if the system will show the Jan Start option, as and when it is live or I have to write to the CBS admissions team to change the starting year (at a profile level). Thanks a lot in anticipation!

Thanks, StratusMBACounselor! It doesn't look like the application is live yet but folks should definitely take a look at the essay questions and start planning! They're a bit different from last year, although they still stuck with 3 and dropped the word count back to 2015/2016 levels.

To answer your question about which application you can select DreamyEyed, once the application goes live, you should be able to select any available application when you click "Start New Application". If you have any issues, you can always contact the admissions office. But the system should not limit which applications are available to you based on the profile you submitted. Plans change all the time!

I hope that helps!

Best,
Melody

Yes VantagePointMelody they may not yet be live but thought people might want to start thinking about the questions! Definitely some tweaks from last year so good to get the brain around these so people are ready to go when they do go live! I think there is a bit of a first mover advantage here. So good luck to everyone looking at CBS in this upcoming round!

From Dr. Shel, MBA Admit.com
http://www.mbaadmit.com
email: info@mbaadmit.com

Hi,

According to Columbia Business School, the new application will be live in a few days, on May 15, 2017! The admissions process is rolling, as you know, so you can submit the application for J-term as soon as you have finished it. The final deadline for submission is October 4, 2017 for the Columbia MBA program that will start in January 2018.

The essays have changed and are already posted in this thread. The amount of essay space has shrunk considerably since last year, so use the “prime real estate” excellently!

Best wishes,
Dr. Shel
