Reserved. Do I have a better chance if I'm international? Or is it just a soft ding like everyone else? :(
Also, no idea what to write for a LOCI. Been travelling and now working in customer service to pay off university debt..

So... who still hasn't heard back yet? Does anyone know when they'll have all decisions out by?

At this point, if you haven't heard, I would suggest calling?

does anyone know if Columbia is historically a difficult school to negotiate financial aid with?

After much deliberation, I chose NYU with $100K over CLS with $75K. CLS didn't even respond to my email giving them a deadline to increase my aid or else I would choose NYU.

For the record, I believe that both schools truly do factor in need. People with numbers very similar to mine got less money at both schools than I did, but I am fairly confident that my applications showed very high need.

Best of luck to all!

Relative to most other T14 excluding HYS, yes, you could say it is known for being difficult.

Somebody should start a reserve thread, so we know what's up.

Hey, I sent an email to the financial aid office last week to see if there was any way to get moar $$$ and I haven't heard back. Should I have sent this to the office of admissions?

I can't believe I forgot one of the most important questions: Is there an easy-to-access bar somewhere around there that shows UFC pay-per-views?
