I, for one, understand that. That said, it doesn't make it any less frustrating. I don't know about you, but I come here to vent with other people about how this whole process is driving me slightly batty.
True that. I don't even want them to make me happy. I just want them to make sense.
I think Columbia would drive me less crazy if they had a status checker that updated. Like, for Penn, you most likely won't get a decision before you have at least 2 status updates. That I can handle. I'm irritated waiting for the status updates, but at least I know that I don't have to freak out on Fridays yet.
Columbia's insistence on mailing decisions and not telling you when they're coming has me stalking my mail lady. She a) thinks I'm crazy, b) sympathizes and c) has started telling me that there's no news.
