Either that, or they sense that we think they're clogged up, and thus want to assure us that the bowel-movement-esque admissions cycle is regular.


Here's another one: It's not a cycle but a system. As in the digestive system. Columbia takes your app, either uses you (if you're good) in their student body, and if you're not good, you get em... disposed of (think large intestine). In this case, regular would mean we're all about to be in a Morningside Heights toilet bowl.

K, not to cause panic for anyone or anything... but I applied ED and on my application status page it clearly says "Early Decision" under my 3rd LOR. Next to it is a little box with a check through it.

Nowhere on my page does the word "Regular" appear.

The only thing I can think of for those of you who applied ED and have "Regular" is that they have not yet received your paper copy of the ED contract.

If you applied ED however, it should say "Early Decision." Hope that clears things up.

nope, all of mine were general letters and it says Early Decision.

I think this theory has some merit. I'll begin research.

I sent them an email asking them about it--as they have not received my ED contract, and very well could be considering me a "regular" decision applicant. I'll keep you all posted.

Mine says Regular too (hopefully not in reference to bowel movements, but thanks for that)

I don't feel like a special snowflake anymore...

Thanks. I sent in my contract about 2 months ago, so I'm wondering if it was lost in the shuffle.

BTW, now that I'm complete, my status checker now includes this note:

"Please note that decisions will not be available online; rather, all applicants will receive their decisions by mail."

So I guess I can stop checking that status checker.

yup, you can now proceed to obsessively checking your email, since they will sent a pdf of your acceptance letter before you get the snail mail package.

I'm interested as well. I've been complete for several days now, but no mention of "Early Decision" under my LORs. Then again, I'm not seeing the word "regular" on there either...

Edit: Forgot to mention that I'm ED, as well.

My "regular" is now gone. Very curious.
