I've been complete since November and I just got a transcript update request. Huh? What are they doing over there?

If I was put on hold in January and they said that if I wish, "I may submit an updated transcript" will it work against me if I did not, even if I submitted an LOCI?

No longer forgotten, just got reserved. Ah well, I saw it coming, although considering I was complete early in October they sure took their sweet time. :x

The same thing just happened to me at another T14 school. The bad thing is that they wont get the transcript until next week, and then you wont hear back for a while.

Since Columbia is a slight reach for me, too, I would love a hold email as well! Congrats!

May I ask when you submitted?

11/22 and went complete 12/6

1. Why was this on page 3?
2. Does anyone know what the program going to be like for the Admitted Student Program is going to be like March 30-31? The admitted students page is down for me, and I haven't gotten my acceptance packet in the mail.
