STILL under review at columbia

Postby 100Kworthit? » Wed Apr 28, 2010 12:45 pm

I just called yesterday morning to Columbia Law to see if at least a decision had been made, even if the decision couldn't be told to me over the phone. Apparently my application was still under review - does that mean I'm basically on reserve / waitlisted? or is there any chance I'll have a decision by the 30th....?

Anyone have ideas or in the same situation?

Just wait. To still be in review at Columbia is pretty admirable.

Do some other stuff. Way too many people on here get so caught up with the whole admissions process that they forget about other things. You're going to go somewhere, you'll be fine. Just wait and im sure you'll hear good news.

Good luck!

I applied early January, and can't quite remember but I think I was complete mid-late January.

been "complete" for months. autoreject here tho.


UPDATE: also WL-- crazy! i think it means "yea we never actually looked at your application, and now it's so late, so we'll tell you you're on reserve & never bother with you unless we're underenrolled" but who cares it's like freakin Christmas in April for me to get that letter!!

I have been complete since October. I have no clue why I am still waiting, but I don't really care what the decision is either way; just want it to be over.

I'm just wondering if they are just sending out Waitlists to everyone at this point...since that's all I hear about... :cry:

Haven't heard yet...I guess no email means rejection for me, or waitlist if I have any luck.
