interviewed in september...no news here either
i'm hoping we'll hear from them within the next few days...at least by friday
from what i remember of the interview day, i'm pretty sure they're just sending a letter by snail mail to your permanent address
i know i'll be on the look out!

Yea they told us permanent address as well but that makes no sense to me at all when the other address was current address.
Its just not as exciting to have to call and find out you were accepted (but I wouldnt complain if I get it) and would really stink to hear it on the phone if rejected.

You live in Georgia! It was mailed from Columbia on Dec 1st. Someone said they received it on Dec 1st which means they live extremely close to the school. The closer you are, the faster you will receive it.

So i guess there was only one piece of paper in the envelope?
Just curious and don't wanna frick out for getting a flat envelope;

No, there is also a student information application that is like 6 pieces of folded paper. It isn't completely flat. Its actually kinda think. Thicker than NYU's.

Thanks for the reality check... I'm not expecting to get in there anyway. I don't feel like my interview went very well :shifty:

Rejected... I'm so bummed about it too. I called them and told them I had a new address. So the lady put in my new address and I casually asked if anything had been sent and she said no. Considering that I interviewed in like the 3rd week I took that to mean I was rejected. :( So I guess it's UOP for me.

Just to add to that (for all of you that are really anxious)... it's in a manila envelope that's smaller than a normal 8x11 piece of paper.

The acceptance letter is dated Dec 1, but I can't tell what the postage is actually dated.

Good luck everyone!

Anyone from Florida or the Southeast receive an acceptance yet?
My permanent address is in Tampa. My parents just received my acceptance packet today (simultaneously with my rejection letter from UF). So I think you'll probably get it tomorrow. Good luck!!!

Congrats! And don't worry about the Florida rejection, as I'm right there w/ you. As I was reading my UF rejection letter, I got an acceptance call from UNC.... ironic :rolleyes:. Anyways, I'm looking forward to getting a letter from Columbia.

I called them today cuz I 've got nothing, and the coordinator said nothing has been sent out to me because NO DECISION HAS BEEN MADE YET(I was interviewed in September by the way....). Does it mean I am wait-listed??

If so, don't they have to send me a letter saying like 'you are waitlisted so just wait' ???

Also, do they even make a real decision upon waitlisted people???
and what % of waitlisted people get luckly accepted ??

so frustrating..... :scared:
