I think you just have to call your undergrad's registrar's office and let them know.

Some schools may have their own form they use. If your school doesn't you can download the form from the admitted students website under the "enroll" section.

Anyone still looking for a place?

I have one spot available in a 3 bedroom near Columbia. Should cost about 1095/mo has dishwasher and washer/dryer in the apartment. You'd be 10 minutes walking from Columbia. Lease would start 9/1, you'd be able to move in a little earlier than that.

i mean i appreciate the info but this could've been useful like, before may 15th smh


What has changed?

prices and descriptions. there's more clarity now about which buildings have furnished / unfurnished rooms, and the prices are definitely different (slightly higher) than when i read over them ~2 weeks ago. nothing drastic, i was just curious if anyone else had picked up on this

They raise rents at the end of each spring semester, so if the increased prices are somewhere in the 4% range that could be why.

Also hoping the loan application deadline is pretty flexible bc I don't want to apply until I decide whether I'm deferring.

Also, is anyone else still double-deposited?


BTW CLS isn't cool with double-deposits.


Not only are they "not cool with it," they say they'll revoke your offer if they find out you did it. Why would you double deposit and risk that?

For some reason I can't find this on the website even though I know I've seen it before, what day can new students move into Columbia housing?

Believe their language is more along the lines of, "we reserve the right to revoke your offer...". I imagine you'll be fine - I had initially planned on double-depositing pending a financial aid decision at CLS; I contacted the admissions office and was very up-front with them about my plans, where I stood, etc. I told them I wanted to make sure I was honoring their policy/process and they told me outright that I'd be okay. Luckily things worked out more quickly than I expected and I didn't wind up having to double-deposit, but I wouldn't sweat it.

That could be the case; I actually got my information over the phone as well, and the sense I got was that it was a definite no-no and that if they found out I could be looking at a revocation of my offer. Perhaps the admissions person I spoke with just had a more draconian interpretation of the policy.

So double deposits are a no-no, but we are allowed to remain on wait lists right, or do we have to withdraw?

Has anyone heard anything about housing assignments? I thought we would have heard something by now - at least based on past years.

Moopness has bemused the stuffy, uptight squares who don't get his Pavlovian obsession with trance music.
For this he will suffer no consequences...welcome to Obama's America.
