I said thank you at the end of my interview, that's enough for me. I didn't send a note and I was accepted pretty soon after the interview.

So it's totally up to you. If it makes you feel better, go for it. If not, they get one less "junk mail".


How soon after, if you don't mind?

Hi. Reserve = Waitlist. Make sure to submit LOCI's, any new LOR/Resume Updates closer to when they start reviewing the Reserve group.
There is also a thread on the forum for everyone who got put on CLS's reserve group. I'm sorry, but there is still hope and good luck!


Ok awesome, thank you! Honestly my numbers are nowhere even close to being in the range for Columbia and I'm not a URM either so this is great news for me. Guess I'll have to start working on the LOCI's soon! Thanks again


No problem!




How's everybody faring today?

Same, except losing my identity into through the void that is my CLS application status.

When's the berk ASW? I've been UR since 2/6 but I think it'll be a while for me. NU ASW is so far away :cry:

It took me 3 terrible, terrible days to finish the CSS but I finally submitted it today wooo

I just filled out the financial aid questionaire, and it doesn't say whether it needs to be submitted via mail or if it can just be emailed to them. Does anyone know?

I called and asked last week, and they told me that because tax documents are included in the checklist, they prefer mail.

Ok, to send the tax docs, we can do it electronically through the College Board, right?? After I submitted my CSS Profile, I got an email from the College Board saying that the institution requested additional documents, and then directed me to an IDOC site where I can upload all the returns and W2s. So that's what I'm doing...

They told me to mail or fax them, but I didn't ask about CSS (or get the same email from College Board)

Huh...strange. Also annoying because I e-mailed the financial aid dept more than a week ago asking where to send the tax docs and have not received a response.

edit: just called the office. They said they still need physical copies sent to the office :x

Submitted Nov 13, but not complete until Jan 25 because it took me a while to secure my second academic LOR.
