No. Columbia is hilariously silent. Sit tight.

Yep, nothing to be worried about there, with Columbia you should be concerned if they respond too quickly. :lol:

I'm starting to think they accidentally put someone else's criminal record in my file. What gives, Columbia??


Seriously?? I'm still waiting for NYU to get back to me, but they already required a deposit last week???

Really? I don't know anything because both NYU and Columbia are keeping me in the dark till the veryyyy lasttttt secondddd ackkkkkkkkkk.

I'm seriously going to be peeved if NYU puts me on the waitlist after making me wait till April for a decision.

And what are the chances that Columbia will give you an actual decision by May, at the latest?

I just don't get CLS. I sent a LOCI through email - two weeks later, no response. So I thought it was lost. I updated the LOCI and sent another through the portal - two weeks later, no response.

Yesterday, I sent an unofficial copy of my graduate school grades ahead of my LSAC transcript because I know that they are making decisions soon and that the information is useful. This morning, response! The office is truly random with how it treats new information.

Good luck everyone.

They changed the deposit deadline to Apil 21st or something for scholarship.

Dear Columbia:

According to the internet, you were supposed to have started sending out acceptances to held students by now. So.. get on it.

With love,

Even my parents are asking on the daily whether Columbia has made a decision yet and what the heck is taking them so long. They're starting to sound like TLSers.
