Yeah, that’s pretty late. I applied September 3rd. They could at least say SOMETHING.

I don't really see why they would even hold people at this point. There are only five weeks before their "hear by date".

Apologies if I'm misunderstanding you, but I haven't been held. I sent them an email yesterday asking them about the status of my application and received this in response.

Aw I should have looked backwards. I just saw this post and assumed you were referring to being held.

Honestly at this point I've basically given up, unless they come to with a huge scholarship offer. NYU can have me.

this seems odd to me that Columbia would be so silent at this point, I feel for all of you out there waiting and I hope you all get good news soon! Does anyone know if this is abnormal ie was there similar silence in previous cycles?

Sad, but true.

Edit: Why the hell have you not been accepted yet? Are you going to HYS? Did you apply late and now regret it?

I have no idea why I haven't been accepted, honestly, and it's really frustrating. I applied in late December, so while I didn't apply early, I certainly didn't apply late.

As for HYS- I was heavily thinking about leaving NYC but decided against it. I have a longterm girlfriend (3+ years) living in NYC with me and I'm not willing to move away when our relationship will already be strained by the general burden of law school. So I'm most likely going to NYU with 30k/year, unless Columbia gets back to me *soon*.

Congrats!!! :-) Good luck to everyone still waiting! Are people on "hold" or forgotten pretty much out of the picture for scholarship money?
