Since the held letter said to send additional materials for consideration up until a certain date, would it be ill-advised to send an LOCI now or was the additional materials more so geared towards LORs, grades, etc.

At least I have company.

I'm jealous that you loved Emory. I went there hoping to fall in love but left extremely disappointed and put off.

Doesn't it suck to have to make a decision without knowing all of your options?

imo we will find out about cls by the 22nd after all deposits are in this friday. hence the entire applicant pool will be accounted for and all outliers will be reevaluated. good luck

Do you think CLS has filled up the majority of its class? I wonder how many spots will be left for us held folks. This seriously feels like a "pre-WL" WL :(

Are the deposits due this early? I thought it wasn't due until May 1?

I am a new admit and I was wondering if anyone could help me make sure I'm understanding Columbia financial aid correctly. If I were going to be getting merit aid from Columbia, would I have found out about it when they offered me admission? Secondly, when they calculate need do they always take parents' assets into account? I don't think I can qualify for merit or need based grants there but I want to make sure. Thank you.

True merit aid only comes with the admit. Then, you can apply for need based (which some see as a second round of unofficial merit) and yes, they will require your parents info. This last part screwed me good. Older student, personally funded two degrees, poor as it gets and somehow my dad's income matters. thanks CLS! good luck to you
