Which means that, since 2 days would be a Sunday, you get it on Monday with the rest of us :twisted:

JK, none of us are getting into CLS.

Oh I assumed they were talking business days, that the red folks would get it on Monday, and the rest of you would get it on Tuesday.

And yeah, that's making the HUGE assumption that anything is actually coming in the mail at all.

You may be right, I have no idea how the postal service works. I just find their maps.

Do we know for sure whether the named scholarships come with this initial offer?

You got one? Congrats! And yes, that's how it's always been in the past.

Also, that map is for mail originating in Long Island, as indicated by the fact that LI is blue while NYC is red.

ETA: You can also see the list of scfs here and it shows that scf 005 is in Melville, Long Island.

I imagine it's still a good estimate for everyone outside NYC though.

VCE! I'm in lower Manhattan. :mrgreen:

It is a big white envelope with a blue folder inside. The letter inside the folder was the off-white that a lot of thicker letter paper is, but there was nothing in the package that could be called vomit colored. I guess we probably should start calling them NCEs.

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


Thanks, Lavitz! I suspect yours will arrive on Monday.

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


They were a really awful vomit color in years past. This is the first year of NCEs I believe.

Thanks, subtle!

biiyis wrote: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.


Yeah, that's what I meant. There's no actual postmark stamp on the envelope, just the electronic stamp with the date of January 24. Seems likely that they were actually sent out on the 25th, since intra-Manhattan mail tends to take just one day.

Says I'm not authorized to view that page anyway, so I'll assume either a WL, ding, or no decision.

Also says I'm not authorized to view the page, and my numbers are basically a lock (173+, 4+). Why, CLS, why?

Make sure you log out of my columbia law and click here: https://web.law.columbia.edu/admissions ... d/activate. It should definitely tell you to enter your pin!

Maybe you are admitted and this is just a good sign? Maybe they don't open it up until Monday? I don't know. I'm trying to figure out some way in which I'm getting into CLS.

edit: Can anybody that hasn't gotten the letter yet access the Admitted Students website (or the page where it asks for your PIN) from WITHIN MyColumbia?
