hey guys, sorry if this has been asked before, but I was wondering if there was any expected timetable for housing assignments? I was hoping maybe next week based on a quick look at the c/o 2016 thread but I wasn't sure if that was realistic.

thanks!

In the ask CLS 1Ls thread they said their deadline was ~2 weeks before ours.

Mine for the march asw just came about a week ago so I think it takes them a while to process it.

+1 and if they did email you, was it to your Lion Mail or regular email address?

It was UAH! Also, it is a studio (couples housing) so it may be taking them longer to assign housing for people who need to receive roommates as well :/

They sent an email (to my regular email address, not Lion Mail) that the decision had been made and further information could be found in the housing portal. Then when I clicked on the housing portal link, I could see the status had changed and all of my housing information was available :)

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



CLS requires their own CLS-specific Dean cert form to be submitted, which you can find (PDF) via the admitted students webpage in the "tasks" section. They do not accept certification forms from your college.

Soo what happens if you can't pay your first/last month's rent or security deposit before you get your loans? Is there any way they'll let you pay later?

Current students have said that they often allow for people to wait until their loans come in.

to me, this could be a pro instead of a con...so long as certain subtle distinction and social adjustments are made within the cold, no fun demeanor. I've given Columbia too much money to back out now...nothing close to how much I'm going to give them, but enough not flake out without reason. Actually feeling pretty fortunate to be able to live on Manhattan for three years at around 1k in rent at least.
