Isn't there an "Admitted at Columbia" thread all you ASWers can go to? :P All these new posts that have nothing to do with whether there's been any movement on those of us still waiting...

I haven't been admitted, and at this point in the cycle I find these conversations to be very relevant to people still waiting for a decision. If those of us still waiting end up getting accepted, we will have to make a decision about whether or not to attend fairly quickly.

Any idea when "holds" might hear back? I think I saw a post earlier about 4/10 being the day last year when holds got decisions.

Some have been accepted. But most of us are still waiting... I don't remember what last year's timeline was but that sounds about right.

It seems like those accepted were held pretty early though. A lot of us got holds in the last 2-3 weeks.

doesn't the email give you a date? IIRC it was something like 4/22...which if you look at LSN from last year there were a ton of decisions around the same time. I'm not holding my breath.

Remember, holds are supposedly being used differently this year.

one thing about asw i forgot to mention - columbias dean, nkonye i think is her name, seemed very nice although a little meek. she was wandering around all the time answering questions and generally appearing to be sweet. i liked how accessible she was

We don't know conclusively yet. Supposedly they're giving holds a more thorough review and letting "more" in due to the batch that recently got in. Who knows though....

I received an embarrassing sum for three years from CLS. I'm withdrawing this month. Narrowed my choices down to NYU and SLS.

I asked them to expedite my financial aid because of the NYU deadline.

I was thinking more along the lines of pre-January submits, since we were supposed to've received a decision by the end of March, but ya January sucks too :(

Have you called them about that yet with the exact wording on their website? Cuz that's just ridiculous, especially when they say you should've heard.
