Will this interview signup mistake affect my admission?

layirplayirp 6 replies12 threads Junior Member

A few hours ago I received an email from the Michigan interview team from Columbia University and signed up for an interview slot with them in February through eventbrite. I just realized that I cannot make the time slot I signed up for and all the other slots are full.

Would it look bad if I canceled /would it negatively affect whether or not I am accepted (I can do it electronically through the site I signed up at)? The email also says that it is unlikely that every student may get an interview and the students who don’t MAY get contacted later.

    Lol I don't have any advice regarding your situation but if you can't make your time slot are you going to cancel it? I'm also from Michigan and kind of want an interview but when I checked the email 2 hours after it was sent all spots were already full lmao

    If you really cannot make, then cancelling now with the reason for the conflict is way better than cancelling last minute or worse, no-showing.
