To discuss applicants for fall 2020. Write away your updates!
I'd applied to Columbia for MS in Computer Science for Fall 2019 and submitted my application on Jan 15th. I got an interview invitation from on 9th March, 2019, which I gave on 10th. I haven't heard back from them since. I enquired about the same yesterday (21st March, 2019) if there was any status update for the application or if I was required to do anything else. I received a one liner reply stating that my application "remains in their review pipeline." Now, I understand around this time of the year, they'd be getting a lot of enquiries. So I wasn't really expecting a very verbose response about the status update. But what do you guys think? Is this a positive indication? Or does this imply a rejection? Or worse yet, does this imply nothing at all and it could turn out either way? Honestly, this wait has now become nerve wracking.
I applied to Columbia’s PhD program for biomedical engineering and got an interview invite. It’s my top choice and I didn’t think it was going to work out, so I was ecstatic to hear from them. Since I got the email though, my stress levels have steadily gone up as I realized that this interview was a step in the right direction but no guarantee of admission. I want to be as well-prepared as possible, and I was wondering if anyone had advice/information on how Columbia’s interview process goes? Should I expect to talk about my own research experience or POI’s? Is it more casual or will it involve an intense technical interview? Are my chances of getting in relatively high or is it like a 50/50? Anything that would help me figure out where I stand and/or how to best prepare for this would be appreciated!
