What's the deal with merit scholarships that aren't the Hamilton/Butler? Is the rest need based? Are other merit scholarships possible?

There are combination need/merit based awards that will come out after you complete the financial aid application. So yes, other merit scholarships are possible.

Is it just me or is the Columbia Financial Aid application a little ridiculous? I feel like they want the exact same information in three different formats. It's a lot of paperwork!

Put me out of my misery. I know 2.5 months isn't a long wait with my numbers, but I have 4 t14 apps still pending and I am not feeling too optimistic about any of them.

It's definitely a weird format. What are you gonna do, hand write it and then scan and email? I know its a type-in-able form pdf but the formatting is so weird nothing will fit in the lines typed.


I was going to mail the tax returns in. I'll probably just fill the form out electronically, and then print and sign and scan if I need to. I haven't looked over the form too much, just saw that it was very long...

At what point should I contact admissions if I haven't received my acceptance letter/packet yet? I was admitted in the first wave, so I think it was two weeks ago now...

That's weird. I was in a wave the week after you and I got mine last week. Since we're in the same location I don't think that's the issue...might be worth an email if you don't receive it in the next couple days.
