Someone from Northern CA heard this weekend.

I wouldn't worry too much now that I see all these super high number people not hearing back yet.

Yup, seeing all these people makes me not nearly worry as much. I did not get a fall grade request, but I sent my updated transcript anyways like a week ago...

Wait, why would they do that? By accident?


Not really sure. Just got a call from my mom and she said I got something from Columbia and it was the Admitted Students Handbook and a letter.


Maybe they know just how much the mail in Austin sucks.

Edit: Congratulations, silver11! That's wonderful news.

I was accepted ED, I live on the west coast, and I haven't received the binder/admitted students materials (a few other EDers have). I'm started to wonder if I just imagined my acceptance :shock:

No love for me today from Columbia. All I got in the mail was some lousy note about being pre-approved for a credit card. I'm in BFE Southwest Virginia.

Dammit. I am not currently speaking to the residents of my current address. According to the female resident, she is never talking to me again. She's going to throw it away if it goes there, for sure. Gaaaahhhhhh.


Wow... maybe a nice bouquet would do the trick for the next week or so, and then you can go on being angry with them...

I don't think they're systematically sending them to permanent addresses.

Someone else said it was going to the current address, and I think that is where most of them go.

Not sure what happened in Silver's case...

Just got in! Came to my current address... and I didn't get a fall grade request (and I'm in undergrad still).

Amy, I think you should consider doing mail forwarding.

I think that would take care of any mail that would arrive at your permanent address for the next 3 months.

That way, if you were admitted to CLS this round, the admitted students binder would go to your current address.

If you're assuming a WL or rejection, then I don't even know why I'm still reading this thread.

Objection, I highly highly doubt you were rejected.

There are still folks with 176+/3.8+ who haven't heard back. I think they are deciding scholarships for those people. You may be one of them.

You may also have a terrible mail system.

Hamiltons and such have already gone out though...and not all of them were "auto-Hamiltons" either.

I hope you're right though!

I'm just a pessimist by nature...virtually all of CLS' acceptances last cycle were done in the same week.
