ETA: do I definitely need to write to Columbia now to ask them to hurry up with any financial aid offer that might be on the way? And if yes, should I be mentioning the amount I got from C and N?
Yeah, send CLS a negotiation letter indicating the deadline. They should get back to you before then, though I can't imagine them giving you a competitive offer since they're generally quite stingy with non-named aid.
If your decisions come down to NYU v Chi, take NYU because well... you get to live in NYC
