Yes. UG dropped the ball on sending Dean's cert.

Columbia hasn't begun rejecting anyone yet, have they?

I had a similar problem. Suposed to have been resent, but no receipt confirm.

I'm worried for us.

Had the same problem at NYU - I just called them and they said they'd received it. Hopefully this means I go complete at CLS as well.

Same. Although I put in my deposit at NYU.


Exact same situation. And that's why I wont be upset if Columbia dings me. With my deposit already down at NYU, im happy either way. I just want the final closure. And honestly, after visiting NYU last weekend and really loving the area and facilities, im not so sure I would up and switch to Columbia so easily, especially since I never intend on leaving the mid Atlantic, where NYU is essentially a peer to Ccolumbia


Have you gotten access to the Admitted Students site yet? I mailed in my deposit, but really want to get going on requesting housing and such.


Looks like I can get onto the Admitted Students site now

I was in the same situation. Had my UG resend the certification and I just (like ten minutes ago) got a confirmation from CLS saying I was complete. So they do still seem to be doing *something* over there.

If your status checker says decision letter sent and you haven't received a call we're fairly certain that's a rejection.

If it still says submitted for review that's probably a soft waitlist.


+1

Any NYU status checkers change to "decision letter sent" today?

I'm still sitting at under review at NYU (since early July), and still 'completion pending' at CLS. The one document holding up my Columbia application? It's the dean's certification sheet from my masters degree program. I did my masters at Columbia. Thanks CU!

I'm UR at NYU as of 7/21. Which is better than nothing, I suppose.
I've been complete or whatever at CLS for a little bit now.

Part of my contemplates withdrawing since I'm happy and set on Michigan, but I feel like I need to wait for the rejections for whatever reason :lol:.

Same here. I considered withdrawing from Columbia since I'm not too confident in my chances anyway, but I'm a sucker for closure

Have the NYU decisions been happening in waves based on UR date?

I can't identify any apparent pattern. It seems like they have been made at random (or due to some algorithm we are not privy to)

+1 I know people who went UR the same day as me, but we received decisions, the same decision, a week apart.

If no Columbia emails by 5 PM, then my guess is none are coming today.

The transfer timeline continues to amaze me. I heard from NYU last week and feel like I'm scrambling to suddenly find a new place to live and restart at a new school.

I guess thats another reason I'm happy to have housing all set. The PATH to NY easily connects to the express subway line that runs directly to Columbia. So should I decide on Columbia (if I were to be accepted), it wouldn't have any effect on the arrangements I have already set up with regard to living by NYC. Guess I'm lucky to at least have that bridge crossed.

Kaiser - have you received any information regarding financial aid or do we need to contact the office ourselves?

I have no clue. All I did was contact the career services office as soon as I sent in my enrollment form (as the form requests that you do). They asked for my email address so that they could ensure that I participate in some webinar they will be having regarding EIW. Anything else is beyond me, and I don't like being kept in the dark.
