bro don't tell me what is and isn't brutal when you got an A from Columbia lolBlunt, yes, but brutal? Brutal is letting people languish on the WL until the school year starts, letting those students second guess everything they do, not cutting those people loose to sign leases with confidence and start really imagining themselves at the school they will really attend.
We greatly appreciate your continuing interest in VP&S.Can you post with name redacted?
There’s another email too that’s difference than the “no chance” one. So that makes 3 different emails so far.We greatly appreciate your continuing interest in VP&S.
Withdrawals seem to be coming in somewhat later this year than last. Although we do not know how things will go in the weeks that remain, you are among a small group of particularly highly rated applicants on our waitlist. Please be assured that we will keep you under very active consideration. We do understand the stress of this entire process.
Thank you for your patience.
We appreciate your interest in VP&S and are reaching out to provide you an update. We have had considerably fewer withdrawals than we had expected by this time of year, and at the present it does not seem likely that things will work out favorably. That said, we will continue to keep your candidacy under consideration in case things could change unexpectedly.Anyone know what the third email said? Not the no chance or high chance, but middle of the road one?
Hey, thanks for your apology. No worries! I wasn't expecting that much from this WL anyway given how competitive the school is and I've already signed a lease for my PTE school, I was just shaken by how strongly the email was worded. Congrats on your A and good luck!
This thread took an oddly wholesome turn. I love it.Hey, thanks for your apology. No worries!

Congrats on your A and good luck!
Congrats! Wow, this has a strikingly different tone than the email sent yesterday lol.Good news everyone! Just got a call from one of my itnerviewers to congratulate me, asked about further WL movement (said "best friend" was on WL also) — they said they expect to roll out some more calls throughout this week so keep hope!!!
I took collegiate to mean university affiliated so I just listed my most significant on campus activities in 3-4 complete sentences. Everything was already in my W/A so I didn't add dates or anything like that. Really a pretty meaningless section but I guess it can be nice if you didn't include everything in your primary. It also gives a snapshot your campus presence which I think is what they're going for since Columbia is so big on extracurricular involvement during med schoolFor all of you that got an II/W/A ... first congrats!
I was wondering if y'all could share insight into how you formatted this collegiate extracurriculars thing? If I have a lot, so I'm not sure if I should just name them and put hours or put dates instead or ...?
