They told me that I needed to contact a previous educational institution and have them send in a Dean's Certification for a minor C&F issue (for distributing a proxy site in a dorm so we could access Facebook... gotta love BYU-Idaho) during my freshman year. Now that I've cleared up that problem, I literally just went complete today, haha. FML. If I had any chance of sneaking onto Columbia's wait list before, it's completely gone now.

Congrats to all the recent admits, though! :)


This made me laugh, and I bet some members of Columbia AdComm will laugh (or at least crack a smile) too. Laughter --> good mood. Good Mood --> ACCEPTANCE!! congrats :D


I'm definitely digging that logic. Let's hope the CLS AdComm feels the same way, haha.

Considering their ASW is next week, it's not the greatest sign.

I visited Columbia a few days ago... y'all... it's kind of a depressing building.

How likely is it that some acceptances go out to January completes this week?

debatably true, but Columbia is a beautiful university overall so I think net attractiveness of the the campus ranks pretty high

it's like they tried to make the building riot proof. It's a maze. And the library is beyond depressing. The campus is gorgeous though

... that's so disappointing. Architecture and layout actually are make-it-or-break-it factors in my decision.

YES. If I have to fight off those damn undergrads for study space during finals, my classmates will get a very real lesson in criminal law...

Not as surprising as you might think. Many folks are turned off by 'furds architecture.
