I was 'complete' a week before this and still no word. Was fully expecting snail mail rejection once people started saying Tues-Sat that they were receiving them, but nothing so far.

Maybe my mailman misdelivered my ding..


Hope "no new is good news" for now. Good luck to us!!

Is there such thing as "good news" at this late stage in the process? Lol.

True, but... I heard that administration in Columbia is very slow and unorganized.

Ehh, frankly, I'd rather get a rejection today rather than waiting a week to ultimately get a rejection, soo, no news is crappy news hah

Just got a delightful email telling me my application is still incomplete. This is hilarious because in the past when I called to ask about my status they made no reference to missing materials.

Oh well, sorry CLS, going to NYU!

I emailed CLS about my NYU acceptance, and they informed me that a letter was mailed to my address on the 31st. Ding! lol wow NYU came through. So glad. Less choices are better at this point.

Same - I sent them an email a while ago telling them I sent what they said was missing. They email me today saying it has to come in by tomorrow. They obviously have it, I still have the order receipts. Not only do they not have their act together - they're also jerks about it.

Note to next year's applicants - apply extremely early and make sure you get them to mark your application as complete quickly. Send all materials to them via certified mail with a return receipt.
