  • Still on the waitlist, any progress for the other folks on the waitlist? I was indicated that we would be told the final outcome by September. Its quite a wait but still a small sliver of hope.

  • TTPB: Thank you for such a comprehensive information... I guess chances are there but slim as students have to inform them that they do not want to enroll in fall or spring... So I guess in best case there might be 5-10 admits... Not more than that... Btw congrats on amazing admits... Yeah Columbia is my dream school too... Hope I get in...

  • TTPB asking about the acceptance rate. This year they had an acceptance rate of ~14% (I was on the admitted student webinar and they informed this thing to us on the webinar; there were many questions asked on this) probably because of Covid I presume (they might have had even lower acceptance rate before I guess). They are very selective and being an IVY league they tend to reject many deserving applications (many people on gradcafe have highlighted this thing over and over again; I agree with this), I have friends who deserved admission but were rejected. Moreover, it is difficult to predict chances of admission to top 20 unis even if you have a solid profile. For instance, I have a Granted Patent as the first inventor, Publication in Q1 IEEE journal (IEEE Access; First and only author), Published over 8 papers in springer (all as first author), produced my own security protocols which received the status of Granted Software Copyrights, Did research internship in DRDO (Indian Defence) and was an external reviewer for IEEE Access. I had a GPA of 8.97 from top Indian Private Institute, had strong recommendation letters (all highlighting my research capabilities), and solid background in security. I applied to 7 unis and was accepted to CMU, UCLA, NYU, USC, Columbia for computer science and got rejected from JHU, UofC. Although, the programs I was accepted to are better than JHU and UofC, my point is that no one can predict there chances of admission to top unis. It is very likely that you get rejected from your safe choice and accepted to your dream school. I will be attending Columbia over all the other offers as Columbia is my dream school. For others waiting, I know few people who are on the same boat, I guess they will announce something very soon. I am very pissed as of why they have not yet released the results. I am waiting for my best friend to get accepted so that we can go together, that's the reason I kind of check the gradcafe website everyday. I feel they are waiting for students to update the university if they cannot make it to Columbia in fall or spring so that they can release the results. In there recent email to the admitted students they had this in the email: "If you are no longer planning to enroll at Columbia in either Fall or Spring, please let me know right away." I hope this gives you some clarity! Because I feel there is still some hope! All the best to others who are waiting!

  • TTPB: To the person who got an admit on 30th July 2020, were you on the waitlist or directly got admitted? Also, what deadline has Columbia University given you to respond to the offer?

  • TTPB: going to graduate from Brown ScM MSCS next year, I will say either JHU or Brown will be a better choice than Columbia. I received offer from Columbia CS last year but chose Brown in the end and not regret. Although I'm not in ECE, generally speaking I think since most of programs in Brown have a smaller class, with top tiers professors and will definitely have a higher quality. My friend in Columbia told me their career fair was awful as well, but the good thing is its located at NYC, so really depends what are you looking for. Hope this helps.

  • TTPB: I am an alumnus of Johns Hopkins CS and now I am in Columbia Univ. To answer your first question, I would choose JHU MS in Data Science over Brown. There are several reasons. JHU's NLP and ML are very strong. Taking the core classes of the DS program will definitely be great. In addition, it is offered by the Department of Applied Mathematics & Statistics which is well ranked. Columbia's MS in CS program will give you the freedom to select courses, not only from CS but other departments like Statistics, EE, IEOR, Applied Physics & Mathematics. Columbia CS program's strength lies in systems, security, and ML. Columbia also has a dedicated Data Science institute closely affiliated with CS, if that is what you are interested in. Ultimately, you need to decide based on what you want out of the program. Either way is good. I must say Columbia's CS is very selective; acceptance rate is less than 10%. And you get to have proximity to the industry.

  • Need advice asap, would you pick Johns Hopkins [MS in Data Science] (1) over Brown University (2) [MS in ECE]? Would you pick 1 or 2 over Columbia Uni [MS in CS]? I am so confused, I need to make a decision to have peace of mind and to free spots for people that are waitlisted. Good luck for everyone with all the mind torture Columbia admissions is causing.

  • I checked the admission data of previous years 1. have never seen any waitlisted after June, 2. haven't found any waitlisted candidate been accepted later. My BF got waitlist two weeks ago as well, I have persuaded him to take another offer, its simply not wise to wait longer.

  • TTPB: When and where did you receive the Waitlist Letter? I received the waitlist email and an invitation for an interview. Also, the date for the result declaration wasn't mentioned in the email. Does this mean I am not on the waitlist? Is anybody in the same boat as me?

  • I feel like you should either get a rejection letter or a waitlist video interview. Does anyone get any follow up info about the waitlist after the interview? No one got admission in the past two weeks since we did our interviews so I am doubting if there is even a chance for us anymore.

  • Don't really care... They waited me wait for so long I lost interest in them... I actually feel that they will reject you to lower the acceptance rate... Many people who deserved a seat got rejected... Don't worry guys just cuz you didn't get in doesn't mean you're not qualified... All the best to all!!! And hope that this decision doesn't depress you much!!!
