Members don't see this ad.
How many of you are on the Columbia Alternate List?
Any strategies to getting in off this list?

yeah tell them you don't want to go to their school. You'd be off the list in no time.:laugh: :laugh:

Seriously, I'm not sure but the class might be full. Just be patient and wait

yeah, when i said off the list, i meant get in to the class....

but due to the lack of responses so far, im thinking i have a good chance cuz nobody responded that they are also on the list. <wishful thinking>

its all good though....

that does not sound to encouraging, but maybe its reality.

anyone heard of someone getting into columbia off the waitlist?

What's an alternate list? What's the difference between the alternate list and waiting list?

I always thought they were the same thing. But after reading your explanation, you might be right.

I changed my theory... :D (you are right).

It's the same... I remembered CASE has an ALTERNATE LIST - which means a WAITING LIST.
