Nope. My acceptance came before I got an app complete email. I got the app complete email two days after I got my acceptance.

Oh okay. Thank you. They finally received my stuff from my school yesterday, I was just worried since I hadn’t received an app complete email. Congrats btw. Are you going here?

Will everyone go to their orientation? Is it mandatory?

It is worded as pretty mandatory. I'm sure if you have some reason you cannot go that it will be okay. I will be going in all likelihood, and I think it's probably pretty valuable to go to (i.e. meet the people in the same boat as you)... seems like a school that it's easy to get lost in.

So annoying! I called and emailed a few weeks ago asking about the fact that a couple of the boxes on the check application status remained unchecked to which they answered not to worry because they were having technical problems and said I probably wasn't missing anything. Today I called again and they finally told me that I was missing a couple of things from a school I attended briefly as an undergrad and that they could not review my application until I got it to them. So irritating!

If anyone might be in the same boat, make sure that they are not missing the components now. Their whole claim telling you not to call them and that they will contact you if they need more stuff is BS. Be proactive and find out what they don't have quick!

I'm tempted to just take my Berkeley offer and try to demand a refund from Columbia and NYU. It feels like they have definitely failed in some obligation to people that are paying them. The fact that they outright state that they will contact you if information is missing really feels like misfeasance.

No, just the initial components received email. When I emailed and called asking about the unchecked boxes they said don't worry and they will contact me if they haven't received anything.

Yeah so annoying! I think it depends on who you call. I was calling in the late afternoon (around 3:30-4) and every time I called around then I was told that I'll receive an email if they're missing anything (which I never got) and to just wait for them to review my app. I call again this time around 1 PM and I had Winston who was superrrr helpful! He actually agreed to pull up my app and let me know what's missing. It's annoying because I called for two weeks before and got other people who told me to just sit back and wait and there was nothing I could or should do. Then Winston this past Thursday tells me my app is missing a ugrad dean's certification and they couldn't review my app until they received that. He also said they could accept an email of it to speed up the review process so long as a hard copy was coming. I got it all done on Thursday, but still no word from Columbia. My app still says incomplete and I have a NYU deposit deadline on Wednesday :/
