Yeah they requested it. I responded to the request email with a PDF of my unofficial transcript.

How long did it take you guys to go complete? I submitted in the first week of December, the checklist says everything is complete. But my status is still "completion pending"... Thanks!

It was about ~9 days for me (11/29, complete 12/08)!
In the same vein, is there any status after 'Complete?' i.e. under review, etc.

Checking in post-interview! Obviously there were things I think I could have answered a little bit better, but I think it went well. Interview was very casual + friendly and made me even more excited about Columbia.

Columbia's interviewing did seem haphazard before this year, but the interview push seems heavy this year. Whether that means they're just making more interview slots to get a better sense of the pool (i.e. still largely random) or trying to interview everyone they admit is unclear.

Just got a handwritten letter and drawstring backpack in the mail. Said more information should come in the mail in late January.

Oh yeah, I already got in ED probably should have said that... they meant more information for admitted students in late January.

If you got an interview, how long did it take to hear from them after going complete?

why can't Columbia's status checker be like almost everyone else's and not ask you for like 20 things to log in?

I prefer this as I don't need to find my password to check it (admittedly this is only a problem because my passwords are all different and random alphanumerics, but still)

ahh. for me Columbia is the only one I have to type shit in for. all other status checkers for me are the same username and password that are saved so I just log in immediately.
