Checking in - submitted on Thanksgiving, still haven't gone complete (assuming they were holding out for Dec LSAT retake, but still not sure what the hold up is). No C&F issues or anything like that. :?

Wait, I had a C&F disclosure and didn't get a dean's letter sent in, but I'm still complete. Should I be worried about delays?


That's interesting. For mine they specifically contacted me asking me to send it in before they made me complete. You're at "Complete" and not "Completion Pending," right? Was the C&F thing related to a university incident or just legal? If it wasn't university they wouldn't need a certification. Otherwise I'm not sure what would be going on.

Oh, it wasn't university. Oops, silly me...that explains it.

If its any (minor) consolation to those waiting to go complete, I know someone who applied to one of Columbia's Grad schools and has been incomplete for over 2.5 months, yet the office says everything is progressing fine with their app.

So at least its not some law-student thing, lol

I was accepted ED and didn't get any scholarship offer. Does that mean I'm not getting any money?

EDs don't get money at most schools (including CLS), since it's binding and they don't need to incentivize you with $.

But congrats!

Thank you! I knew I wouldn't get much, but is it completely impossible I'll get any?

Submitted on 12/23 and went complete on 1/4. So the first wave of RD acceptances has not rolled out yet?

Not really. They gave the ED person something of value already, an acceptance where there otherwise likely wouldn't have been one. Informed people are usually aware there will be little to no money, and accept this as a fair deal.

Nope...and we are all waiting in agony.

It should be soon though. Chins up, everyone.

Nope. We're hoping/thinking it should start late next week or the week after.

Makes sense. How about (institutional) loans? They can't borrow from the school either?

Institutional loans are usually based on financial need, so I'm guessing that ED people are just as eligible as non-ED people.

Submitted the same date and still at completion pending... Cause for concern? I guess I'll wait it out for a few more days before calling.

It seems a few early December applicants only went complete last week or so. I wouldn't be too worried. Maybe call them if nothing turns up by the end of next week?

Columbia hasn't awarded any aid to any of their new admits yet (we don't even have passwords for the admitted students site), so the fact that you haven't heard anything regarding aid doesn't mean anything. I also read a post from a CLS student who was admitted ED in a previous cycle who said he/she received the amount of aid anticipated based on his/her financial situation. However, I don't know exactly how much that person received, and I can't find the post right now; so I guess take it for what it's worth.

Excuse the ignorance, but does Columbia send out acceptances via email or snail mail? I recall something about VCEs in the past so I wasn't sure.

Snail mail only unless international

In the past, ED by email, RD by mail. I don't know if we have official word that that's continuing this year, but it seems like the safe bet.
