No. Haven't received an interview invitation and probably will be rejected.

@DataWK Same here. Haven't received an interview or a decision back. So nervous. I dont know whether they are going to send out the interview/decision for a second wave~ Becuase I have seen that they give people a pretty short time for response to accept an offer, and it seems last few years that they are sending out offer in a couple waves. Finger crossed -

Hi all, I just called the DSI admission. They told me they are sending out decisions in the next 2 weeks. Regarding the interview, they did not answer clearly for me. Sounds like not all applicants are interviewed but they are still under reviewing process and is still sending out interview requests ... not sure whether it is helpful, but at least we still have some hope... it’s been a long process waiting

Asked via email if it's possible for a status update in lieu of the deadlines for offers from other schools. I got the following generic response:

Thank you for your interest in Columbia Engineering. Please be advised, the application review process may take several weeks or longer and this is normal due to the high number of applications received and the selectivity of the program. The application reviews are also strictly confidential.  We are not privy to the details regarding the status or any other aspect of your application while it's under review. 

 
We appreciate the time and effort you spent in preparing your application and want to assure you that the faculty admissions committee is working very hard to give each application careful attention. We will contact you via email as soon as a decision is entered on your application.

hello all congrats on your decisions and hope you're enjoying school! reaching out because i'm applying for the masters program for Fall 2020.

I was wondering what the interview was like? I know some schools (like USF) ask technical questions in their interview. Is Columbia similar? Much appreciated!
