I was only asked one question: interest to MSOR. does this mean I will be declined? looks like they are interviewing most applicants this year. so an interview does not always mean an admission, as last year.

They have a large number of applications this year so please forgive their disorganization. Some people have been interviewed twice because Columbia couldn't keep track of this. So don't panic and just try to enjoy your experience with Columbia.

Offtopic: They should build a better online status system. If you can check your Facebook status on your phone, you should be able to do the same with your application, right?
 
The whole Columbia's IT infrastructure should be revamped, not just online status system. Their emails portal has slow loading time, their student portal (mycolumbia.edu) has been basically useless because the content is very lacking (I went to UCLA, and my.ucla.edu website has great content, and is important part of student life).... Columbia has a pretty pathetic IT infrastructure for a university of its status.

It's true the same happened with me yesterday! Two questions: Why Columbia? and Are you interested in OR?
I was supposed to be waiting list for FE so I dunno why the hell would they conduct an interview asking whether OR interested!
Anyway, check your online status it might show that you have been declined from FE already.
Best of Luck

I don't think they would bother to email you and ask you to call them if you were rejected to begin with.
