The application is not up yet, but the questions for entry J-Term Class of and August for Class of are.
Sincewhen I established my own consultancy, I have been an MBA admissions consultant since I have been fortunate to work with 31 clients admitted to Columbia Business School. Columbia certainly rewards those who make it their first or sole choice as both J-Term and ED seem to be significantly easier to get admitted to than RD.
Columbia is also one of the most reapplicant friendly schools both in terms of the reapplication process for those who reapply within one year of their initial application and in terms of acceptance rates. For my post on re-application to Columbia, see here.
When they are gone, they are gone.
Keep the following into consideration when explaining why the January Term program is right for you: This tends to attract students who wish to remain in the same industry including sponsored studentsentrepreneurs, and students in family businesses.
Please note that there is no early decision option for January entry and that, due to the timing of the application cycle, January term applicants are not eligible for merit fellowship consideration. The principal advantage of the month program is its accelerated format, which allows members of the smaller January class to network quickly and effectively and return to the workplace sooner.
Based on what former clients tell me, it is common for J-termers to do part-time internships in NYC while studying.
Actually, this is often true for those attending August as well. These are not the same as summer internships but can surely serve the same function.
Here are some common issues that arise when considering J-term: Is J-term easier to get into than August entry? There is much speculation on this issue, but no admissions data. Still the lack of merit fellowships, an internship, and the nature of who the program is designed for, clearly indicate that it is going to attract fewer applicants, so my assumption is that it is surely easier.
Happy to proven wrong if CBS admissions provides data showing otherwise. All I know for sure is that relatively late application to J-term has not prevented my clients from being admitted, whereas late application to RD is a real problem simply from a seat availability perspective.
In one way, J-term is clearly easier: Unlike an August entry RD and and to a lesser extent ED applicant, someone applying to Columbia J-term can really be assumed to prefer Columbia over all alternatives.
Since J-term has no real US rival, this topic can be easily dispensed with in an interview. Program Alternatives to J-term: There are no US alternatives to J-term worth mentioning if someone wants a January start.
Kellogg and Cornell offer one year MBAs, but neither Kellogg or Cornell start their programs in January and both are accelerated programs in terms of the number of courses taken.
Only J-term makes it possible to do two years of courses on such an expedited basis. In addition, the Kellogg program is extremely restrictive, since one has to have taken many core business courses to apply to it.
Still J-term is an incredibly different program in terms of length and content from either of these top non-US programs.UCLA Anderson is looking at all aspects of the individual that will benefit the world as a whole. So when you apply, it's not just to earn an MBA, it’s to gain an opportunity to make impact.
