Columbia - Tax Return

Postby feisty_rabbit » Wed Feb 27, 2013 10:32 pm

I submitted right at the wire and haven't gotten a decision yet. I've completed the FAFSA and needaccess, but Columbia requires tax returns to be faxed by March 1st, except for this line from their website:

** For admitted students, if 2012 tax forms are not available by March 1, please submit complete 2011 tax forms by March 1, and complete 2012 tax forms by the end of April. Applicants to the J.D. program DO NOT need to submit tax returns unless they are admitted.


Does that mean I won't have to submit tax returns until after they (fingers crossed) admit me?

Thanks in advance!

Lol, sorry, to clarify I meant does this mean I don't have to submit a copy of my tax return form to the office of financial aid at Columbia until I am accepted? I have to submit a revision to my tax return (and haven't yet) and my parents haven't filed yet.

Thanks! I was just confirming that that was how others were interpreting it as well.
