No, but I did just get that email (I'm sure everyone else got) with pending deadlines for enrollment procedures...


I called and confirmed that my dean's certification had arrived like a week ago because I had ordered it back in february. I don't think they let you know, if you're unsure, I would just call admissions. It took all of two seconds for them to check my file.

Ditto. I sent a request to my school back in March, and when I emailed Admissions they confirmed that it had arrived safely. It seems they don't send out email confirmations on Dean's Cert and Transcripts.

Hey guys,

For this deadline mentioned in the e-mail today:

August 1 – Submission Deadlines for final, official academic transcripts showing degree conferral, mailed to the Office of Admissions.

If we graduated a while ago, do we need to resend our transcript to Columbia? I sent mine through LSAC, but I don't have any updates to it since I graduated in '07.

Yes, you need to resend even if you LSAC transcript shows you graduated.

Nothing yet, and I also applied in March. I don't think it matters when you applied.

Nope. They let me in...late January. I did the housing thing early since it was non-binding. I figured why not.

Got assigned today. Efficiency unit in Lenfest...average monthly rent is approx $1736.00.

Efficiency unit was my final preference on the housing application, and I specifically requested to live on W 115th. I think I applied in February.

Working on a reassignment with Elizabeth Grainger.

Well to their defense, I updated my preferences mid-March, maybe they just overlooked that.

I just told them I was indifferent to the sex of my roommate. It's a dilemma, really: less drama vs. clothes sharing.

I know a lot of girls seem to share clothes with roommates. Are the odds that good of landing up with someone of similar enough size to do it?

In my experience, yes. Maybe not with jeans but definitely with dresses and going-out tops (the sort of clothes we share the most). Dresses and tops (especially the drapey, looser-fitting ones) can usually fit an array of size and height combinations within a few inches/sizes.

So true. I'm going to miss living in a house of 6 girls
