Columbia doesn't release decisions until the end of January for RD.

I apologize in advance if this is a stupid question but...

Does the Columbia status checker actually change to say "under review"?

Yeah, status checker is useless. We'll just have to wait and hope for some VCE love.

VCE = vomit-colored envelope, correct?

Will the status checker not change to "decision letter sent" if they've sent the VCE?

Nope. Last year's thread is full of USPS-fueled hilarity/agony.

Basically everyone hears in one shot though, so at least it doesn't linger.

Just to give you an idea, I still have nothing from NYU. No acceptance letter, no box. And I got in in early December.

That's ridiculous. You should have them FedEx it to you at this point. You'll never get to read the thrilling faculty profiles or use your Post It notes.

Does anyone have an idea of how recent in RD pool of completions they will go in the mass notifications at the end of this month? For example, will they notify people who went complete in early January? December?

Is it terrible that it was the Post It notes, not the faculty profiles, that convinced me to email NYU if nothing gets here this week? :P

Agreed, if you're not in the law school application game for the stationary swag, then you're in it for the wrong reasons.

Not gonna lie, I thought the post-it notes were really badass. I just haven't figured out where the hell to use them yet hahaha

Current 1L. I can confirm the status checker doesn't change after complete. Gotta wait for the VCEs to get in. Good luck!

Also, where's the VCE postmark date madness? The c/o 2014 thread was obsessed with figuring out when the committtee sent letters.

Noooo. I'm already imagining my letter getting lost in the mail. I wish the end of January would come faster.
