Columbia Business School has on its web site the following notice:
MERIT FELLOWSHIP DEADLINE UPDATE
DUE TO THE IMPENDING WINTER STORM, THE DEADLINE
FOR MERIT FELLOWSHIP CONSIDERATION
HAS BEEN EXTENDED TO WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 8 at 11:59 PM EST.
As I noted in response to Kellogg’s postponement of its Round 2 deadline, if you feel your application is ready — you’ve put in the necessary time to think and write, edited it, and proofed it appropriately — don’t feel compelled to start monkeying with the essays or answers. You may actually make it worse. Just submit.
If on the other hand, you believe you rushed the writing or didn’t have the appropriate distance and objectivity when editing and proofing your application, then take advantage of the postponement to work on it some more and submit tomorrow.
You may want to view the MBA Essay Editing Funnel, an on-demand webinar, if you’re not sure if you thoroughly checked your application.
