Just got an email informing me that I had been place on "reserve." Not too broken up about it, since I was expecting a straight ding.

IN! I could not have been expecting this less. I've been completely ignoring Columbia because there are no status changes to analyze and no AS website to sneak into... I just thought I would go home one day and there would be a vomit-colored envelope. Definitely shouted "oh shit!" a little too loudly for an office environment when an email from "Admit" popped up. I was then worried for 2 seconds that it was a ding and they just happen to use the "Admit" email address to send all decisions. Then I saw "Congratulations!" and all was well with the world.

3.9x/170, submitted 12/25, complete 1/13.

I was wondering whether anyone knows how deferring affects your financial aid.

Is it true that you have to reapply for financial aid the next year, and don't get to keep any offer they give you this year?

I know in a normal cycle, you are more likely to get aid if you apply earlier (I didn't apply til January.)
However, if I am deferring, will I get less money because of it? Will Columbia give me the minimum since I signed a binding agreement and have to go no matter how much they give me, and because I won't have any other offers to leverage?

Thanks!!


I talked to someone who deferred and their financial aid rolled over, but they had a Butler. Fairly certain we'll have to reapply for financial aid, but if they offer me something this year, I'll definitely reminder email it to them saying I agreed to come based on this financial package.


If you deferr u must reapply for financial aid next year. They insist you apply this year as well just to give u a rough idea how much u might expect.

With those numbers, though, you are an auto admit.

Still waiting. I went complete on February 10th so I may be waiting for quite some time. I'm hoping they let me in in time to do NYU and CLS in the same weekend. That, or they could waitlist me so I can get started on a LOCI...
