172/3.63. Sent 10:30AM. East Coast. Uhhh submitted late November, not sure "actual" complete date because they asked for my fall transcript, which wasn't sent until January.

I CAN'T BELIEVE IT OMG

This surely is a cure for the rejection stream blues.


Congrats!!  :D :D

So now Columbia is sending acceptance emails to everybody? Or just a selected group of people?

lol of course. By saying "everybody" I meant all the accepted people. In the past they only sent acceptance emails to international applicants right? Now seems they email US applicants too. Does this mean we don't have to wait for the snail mail, but can start freaking out about emails?

First it was the daily disappointment of an empty mailbox. Now it's the daily disappointment of an empty inbox.
I just can't do this. Can't!

November here, November!

I went complete in October with a 176 and a 3.7x; I haven't heard a thing since. As time has gone by I have gone from thinking I would get a scholarship, to wondering whether or not I'm even going to get on the wait list.

Just got the reserve email.. think I'll just withdraw. We won't even hear until the end of May and by then I doubt there's much scholarship $ which is the only thing that'd draw me in. Since I've got good #'s and my app was well liked elsewhere, it might have something to do with my declining to interview. Of course, they might have just not liked my app.

Are all applicants that they are considering offered an interview? They marked my app complete only a few days ago despite it being in well over a month ago. Just trying to map out exactly how long they're going to make me wait for a decision!

Congrats to those admitted!

My status checker says completion is still pending, and while I did submit late (Jan 31) I would have figured my app would have gone complete by now...Should I be super worried? I find it odd that NYU was able to accept me less than two weeks after submitting but I'm not even complete at Columbia yet :(

This Columbia cycle looks really strange, but I badly want to get in, so please show me some love Columbia!!!

It took me all of December and about 8 days in January to go complete, so you should be fine.

I'm really hoping for some good news today - though I have absolutely no reason to believe that it will be the case. I guess so many holds and waitlists lately gives me hope for some better news soon.

Fingers crossed for us waiting! (As always)

all their email waves have been noon or before noon and this week seems to have daily decisions of some kind. it's nice, you know when to expect some kind of news from them and it clears up your afternoons for clear, untethered thinking. Maybe there are still some people who are slated to win big, but I wouldn't be surprised to get some kind of brush off at this point.

I've been completion pending since January 13th.

Seems like a long time - should I shoot them an email?

it took me a little over a month to go complete with an early Jan submit date. You're totally fine.
