Note at Columbia via n/a.
Round: Early Decision
Note: Re-posting an old one, sorry-When does Columbia announce scholarship received (if any)? I remember seeing on website that they may do it at the time of admissions or late into spring, but don't think it was specific to the MBA program. Also saw someone mention the scholarship is mentioned shortly after acceptance. Any thoughts?
