Postmarked the 7th.


Thanks for returning some hope to this thread!
And thanks for sharing your info.

Edit: and congrats on your acceptance as well!

Pretty sure that's not true. At least according to the admission blog, holds can either be accepted, rejected, or put on reserve.


sorry man, i have been through the cycle more than once and it is true. what adcomm blogs say does not equal the truth.

I think you are missing the proof part of the equation.

Sorry to be OCD, but was the postmark date the same as the date on the letter?

Congrats! You should be thrilled. :)

I have the feeling this round (if you call it that), will be more of a trickle, judging from LSN.

Thoughts?

Accepted by VCE/mail today! What a lovely surprise!


Submitted 12/30. Went complete mid to late January.

173/4.04. My application was not Columbia specific but I did attach a diversity statement about my nationality and religious persuasion.

Very very excited. Was also accepted to Chicago today.

VCEs all seem to be closer to east coast for the 2/7 post mark crew? Anyone on the west coast receive decision via snail mail that was postmarked 2/7?
