Do you think I will still be considered ED, since I checked it on the app and sent in the contract on time? If I am ED, would that be somewhere on my status checker on the columbia site? thanks for any input.


The status checker does not indicate whether we're ED or not... which I also find quite weird/confusing. I think you'll still be considered an ED applicant though.


Thanks...I sure hope so bc I don't think I can bare the anxiety for another month lol.

I'm applying regular decision and just got a request for my fall grades too. Not exactly sure if it's a good thing of bad thing.

I’m RD, still in school, and no request. Maybe because they aren’t considering me for admission.

Just wondering, have any ED applicants received fall grade requests?

I really hope Columbia doesn't get so far behind in reviewing applications, that it has to defer the rest of us.

It seems to be random. Quoting from another thread:
Helmholtz wrote:From what I know about last year, it was pretty much completely random (or at least from our viewpoint): people with high GPA's, mediocre GPA's, low GPA's, anybody.


Still, kind of interesting if this implies they might be looking at RD applicants before being finished with ED applicants.

I can't believe ED applicants haven't all heard back by now.
This alarms me as a future potential applicant -_____-

You're not even an potential applicant, just might be in the future? Way to hedge your bets.:)

Haha, poor kid.. At any rate, hopeless romantic, good luck when you do apply, hopefully it's less wacky than this cycle.

I think calling this cycle wacky is a little over the top. It's not even two weeks into December yet. Don't they only promise answers before January? Nobody would even be worried if people hadn't gone over the last five years of decision dates and tried to predict when they were coming out.

Or maybe those four guys were it and we're all doomed. Honestly, I wrote that as a joke, but if this is a low applicant year and they end up dipping a little deeper into the applicant pool to maintain their medians, they might defer a lot of people to RD and accept them once it's clear that they really need to. It's not like any borderline ED candidates are going to do better than Columbia, so there's not a huge reason to keep them bound.

Considering most admissions offices are closing in about a week, something must be heard one way or the other by all ED applicants soon, no?

You're wacky, nobody...

Clearly. Since I'm nobody, I don't cogito at all.
