I am ED at Columbia, and there seem to be plenty of people still waiting (even though in the past they've never failed to finish by the end of December AFAIK).
NYU has a hard deadline for Dec 31. CLS has a soft deadline.
How do you mean a soft deadline?
Hard deadline: "You will have an answer by the end of December."
Soft deadline: "Applicants will generally receive an answer by the end of December"
They give themselves extra leeway by being vague
My Columbia ED contract seems pretty hard, then: "You will be notified of Columbia's decision in December."
