I hope so, because all I got in the mail today was my rent bill.

NCE just received in Manhattan! Postmarked 1/24.

Submitted early November (can't remember complete date). Numbers are around 75th with above average softs. No mention of scholarships, so I guess I'm out of the running for a Butler or Hamilton. Good luck to all still waiting!

Thanks everyone. Sorry for the terribly oversized pic -- just wanted to avoid any suggestion of trolling.

Again, good luck to everyone! I'm literally three miles from Columbia, so I imagine folks will start receiving them en masse early next week.

These come a bit staggered during the week, right? I'm just curious. For reasons. Delusional reasons, one might say, but still.

ETA: I really don't understand where VCE came from. That's just manila!

Probably staggered because people around the country receive the letters at different times?

I think everyone in the continental US will get theirs by Tuesday.

Congrats, ared!

Nothing in my mail, unfortunately :( Then again, I'm in an outer borough.

Oops, sorry, I meant staggered by postmark date. Not receipt date. Unless the USPS can now teleport their mail, which would be awesome.

Guys, I need some advice. I was deferred ED but they requested my most recent transcripts by March 1st in the e-mail since I'm in my senior year of college but my LSDAS took a slight hit and I'm apprehensive about sending them because it can only hurt me. Should I just not send the transcripts to LSAC? I feel like I need to bump my LSAT up a good four or five points and try this again in September anyway lol.

I would think that if you didn't send it after they requested it, they'd be pretty suspicious. So I'd send it with the belief that it's less of a hit than not sending it at all.

you must send it - if not, they'll just reject you this round, and note that you missed the deadline in your file. that certainly won't look good to the adcomms if you re-apply next year. just suck it up and send it. besides, you might still get in.

Are the envelopes very large, or regular sized?

I live in Manhattan and the mail arrived, but all my roommates are out and they are the ones with the mail keys. :(

FYI, I believe the "postmark" date referred by aredhello is merely the date the envelope was run through Columbia's electronic postage stamping machine. Most likely it was actually postmarked Jan 25 2013 and received today. Just wanted to clarify this point.

They're the size of a standard folder.

Could you explain why we shouldn't expect anything from the Admissions until early February?

One interesting excerpt from the ED letter, though:
"We anticipate that almost 7,000 students will apply for the approximately 365 spaces in our entering class."
As far as I know, that's a smaller class size than in past years... wasn't it above 400?

Outside of that, the ED admits shouldn't have any other material until early February, so you guys may have a packet/VCE long before I do haha.

I think they probably put February to give themselves a cushion. I doubt they would make ED admits wait longer to access the ASW than RD admits. Then again, ED admits are going to CLS no matter what, so I suppose they might prioritize wooing RD admits.

Do you think early January applicants will get decisions soon? Then again, I only went complete on 1/15, so I severely doubt it. Waiting just has me on edge.
