Hi everyone, got dingged at HBS and Columbia ED this year. Interview invites to Yale & Tuck. MBB Consultant (Southeast Asia) with ~3 years of work experience. 3.7 GPA from Top 15 US institution, and 720 GMAT. Still waiting on Kellogg and Wharton. Thoughts on my odds?

Similar demographics and consultant here - I would suggest hold on, maybe take gmat again. I got a decline at CBS ED but got interviews at HBS and Booth. CBS seems really tough this year

Can I ask what was your story SC1?

Very few people get rejected from Columbia ED without an interview invite and get accepted into Wharton. You have a reasonable chance at Kellogg.

Thanks everyone for their insights - yeah I have heard anecdotally that CBS has (i) been especially tough this year and (ii) does tend to sometimes ding Bainies for the reasons below and (iii) is really GMAT sensitive. Hoping Wharton or Kellogg works out - still waiting

CBS doesn’t want internationals.

A1 why do you say that?

OP, DM me if you want to chat - I have a 720 too, from SEA but not in a SEA office and got interview at HBS so I wouldn’t stress about the GMAT quite as much, good luck with K/W, sending another SEA Bainie lots of love!

Can I ask what your story was B2?

I’m also waiting to hear back from CBS ED and I’m not feeling so great since you have great/better stats than I do. When did you apply for CBS? You have a shot at Kellogg and Wharton. I’ll be surprised if you didn’t get an interview invite to either!

Ah, I’m at a 710 for my gmat so doesn’t sound great on my end either. And it seems like CBS ED this year is insanely tough. 😭 Good luck on your other schools!

If you’re rejected and apply again next year. Could you use the same LoRs? I’m applying R2 but just planning ahead with this brutally competitive year.

That’s annoying lol
