Any word on those of us who submitted in October or so, but haven't heard back anything at this point? Are we definitely getting decisions soon at least?
Somewhere, Booya takes a shot
TL, DR version of the past few DAYS:
Acceptances started streaming in by snail mail postmarked as early as 1/24. There are a few known "batches" of acceptances postmarked 1/24, 1/25, 1/26, 1/31, and 2/2. First class mail - not priority. There was a blizzard in NY that caused a storm of speculations and theories, all but seem irrelevant at this point.
There was a huge wave of holds notified by email on 2/2 and 2/3 which included many many well-qualified candidates. They hear back in April.
There was another wave of reserves notified by email on 2/3 which too included many well-qualified candidates. They hear back in May.
There was a group of denied applicants notified by snail mail, postmarked 2/1. We don't know if it is the only "batch."
If you haven't received an email and applied before 1/10, our best guess is that you will receive a decision in the mail within the next few days. Or your file was lost. Or Columbia has a "Not officially held, but actually being held until the next wave" batch.
That's about it.
Edit: Someone received an acceptance who went complete 1/18. Take it as you want to take it.
