So two months ago I applied to Yale, Harvard, and any in the top 14 that sent me a fee waiver. That wasn't Chicago or Columbia, so I just told 'em the didn't know what they were missing and moved on. But today, strangely, I got a fee waiver from Columbia. I don't spend much time on TLS and I don't know more than an average amount about the process, but isn't this pretty late? It feels late. But I might apply anyway, even though they might just be toying with me.
Is it too late to be trying to apply to a top six school? For what it's worth, my numbers are quite good (above 3.95/above 175), non-URM and very little work experience but one good (I hope) soft in the form of an Oxbridge graduate degree. Thoughts, ye who know more about Columbia's admissions procedure than I do?
It's free and they haven't released any RD decisions yet anyway. Why not!
Good luck and congrats, those are awesome numbers!
