    Currently, I am on the alternate list at columbia, but today the status on AADSAS has changed to "Offer Accepted." However, I haven't received any phone call or letter. What does this mean? Did it happen to anyone?

    Give them a call tomorrow. Seems odd, but there's always a chance of getting some good news.

    My status was changed as well. Yet I haven't heard anything from Columbia in months so I have no clue.

    Sounds like you guys just got good news! I had an update but it says "received/application denied".

    Columbia is weird though, I called their staff to ask if I could have my interview in early January (this was in mid November) because my funds were low at the time. They said that it was fine to do but then sent me a rejection on Dec 1 lol. So I guess you never know what they're doing...

    Or they might have mistakenly put "offer accepted" to all the people that are in their waiting/alternative list. Apparently, those people, including myself, haven't actually "accepted" the offer, so something is weird with this. Plus, all people in waiting list get a phone call when they are accepted off from waiting list. We got no phone call.

    I found out that it was a mistake and the status has been changed to "waitlisted."

    I had a feeling it was a mistake since none of us were called. Oh well, I accepted another school's offer back in December anyways and it wasn't going to change my decision.
