Technically, doesn't their application deadline run until Friday?

Has anyone heard from U of Chi or NYU? CLS won't start releasing until after the 15th - their app deadline is the 15th.

My friend who transferred to CLS a few years back didn't hear until 7/28. I think CLS is by far the last school to release any decisions (honestly, I'm not even sure if I have a status checker).

sigh, no changes. :x Still UR 6/30 at Penn (updated from 6/24), UR 6/24 at NYU, complete at CLS, and Ready for Review at H.

regarding columbia, it says above that last year they released decisions July 8- July 29. We'll probably start seeing some of those with auto-admit numbers get accepted there maybe this week? They don't have to wait until July 15 to start accepting.

Yeah you should have a status check. 7/28 would be way way too late for me I think. Last year they had a bunch of emails go out around the 8th or so.

It does appear that according to last year's CLS thread, there was a decent-sized wave of acceptances by e-mail on 7/8. Hopefully something similar will happen this week...

Edit: You guys beat me to it.

I have until Monday to decide on NYU. Would love to hear from Columbia so that I can make a final decision. They still have me at "completion pending" yet they have every piece of my application for over a week.

Theyve done the same to me, despite having every piece for 2+ weeks (I was completion pending at CLS before I went complete at Penn, and since then I have gone complete, under review, and decision at Penn --). Further, I emailed them last week about it and have not heard back. argh.

I guess worst comes to worst, I just deposit at NYU, and then wait to hear back from Columbia, and if I decide on Columbia, I can just choose it then and eat the deposit amount. Though I really don't want to blow 600 bucks like that.

Given that I am already short on cash (why is it the best 1L summer jobs don't pay well?) and much of that was blown on apps, I can't justify blowing a seat deposit so I'll be making phone calls to NYU and CLS to rush things along.

It can't be a very good 1L summer job if it doesnt pay well

Figured it out (I'm at "Completion Pending" with a weird message that they've received everything but haven't compiled it all yet, so I'm guessing this means I don't have to send anything else, but who knows).

kaiser, if I were you, I would just accept NYU not bother with the CLS headache if you don't hear before the NYU deadline. There just isn't enough difference between the schools.

Do you think that is the best move? How much is the seat deposit you will lose? I think that calling them to tell them to hurry up is an easy way to be told: "no, sorry we can't meet your deadline. Do what you need to do." or just plain "no."

The seat deposit I will lose is 500. I know that I'm being really crazy, but I barely have enough money to make the rent, let alone pick up and move to a new school on a months notice. I plan on wording my request respectfully and in a manner that conveys my very strong interest in a decision from CLS or NYU: I have heard that making these requests as garnered positive results in the past.

Waitlisted at Chicago 7/11.

Anyone familiar with transfer waitlists? Do they work the same as our first time around?

Top 10% (former) T15.

And, no, I was not ED. The status checker changed to 'Waitlisted: Notified by Email.' I haven't actually received the email though.
