This is only a trial so even if interviews affect those interviewed (which it almost seems like they won't based on their info page), they definitely won't affect us. I'm sure they've already decided what to do with many of the pre thanksgiving apps.


Because it's Columbia.

Calling and asking isn't a high-risk strategy. But it's also a low-reward strategy, and you're dealing with a group of extremely risk-averse people.

Thank you!


...at the risk of only presenting you guys with a low reward, they started sending acceptances on Friday :) someone had to do it

A friend of mine who also applied called just now. He doesn't have a TLS account though.

Dear Columbia,
I may or may not have signed up for a new credit card that will be sent to my parents house. They will not be thrilled to get this. So if there could be a correspondingly fantastic letter there, that would be greatttttt.
Love,

THE scoobs

They wouldn't check his actual file. It was all generally speaking but he was asking "for people without interviews, when will acceptances start getting sent out?"

I'm personally freaking out thinking the letter might come today, BUT, let's remain somewhat skeptical until we hear people have started receiving letters / international students have received e-mails.

Color me skeptical but cautiously optimistic. How well do you know and trust this friend?

Seems strange that no one in NYC / surrounding area has gotten a letter yet since mail was delivered Saturday and already today for others.

So does the status checker not change to DLS?

We're going to have to rely solely on USPS??!?!?!
