Do they send it by USPS or UPS/FedEx? I don't think UPS delivers on Saturdays.
eta: paging jbagelboy or other current CLS students for input from last cycle

He's one of my best friends and has been freaking out about Columbia too. I just can't imagine they'd lie about starting to send out acceptances. BUT I am slightly skeptical myself since no one has heard yet. I'll give it three days before chalking it up to the office lying.

Live 45 minutes from NYC and just got the letter from Columbia! First time posting, so I understand if you're skeptical. LSAT >75 GPA >25

It probably can if they use the same mailing system that Penn uses...

You just receive a "VCE" in the mail (the café au lait envelope).

International applicants were notified I believe on Day 2 of the wave after COB, so I'm guessing that's why we didn't hear anything until now.

Congrats! So if NYC just got theirs today, a Midwest kid could conceivably get one tomorrow?

This. I looked it up and 3-5 days to reach Chicago.

Edit: I'm assuming that they probably had the mail picked up Friday night and it wasn't sorted until Saturday, started going out for delivery today. That puts Midwest probably Wednesday at the earliest.

Thanks everyone! There was a blue envelope with a blue folder inside that had the letter (with admitted students website pin number) and a couple of pamphlets including ASW info. I submitted mid-November and went complete within a week.
