also i'm curious, is there still anyone who hasn't been accepted, waitlisted or rejected? or did they place everyone who was neither accepted nor rejected on a waitlist?

Anyone who filled out the waitlist form got a confirmation reply from Ms. Lugo?

So pretty much everyone who were interviewed but not accepted are invited to be waitlisted right?

For those that interviewed, when did email you with a schedule? I have my interview on Friday and still haven't heard from them...
Also, how was the interview experience overall?

I received it the Wednesday before my Friday interview. The interview was pretty straightforward but I think they vary depending on your interviewer. I thought that my interview went terribly and that I would be rejected for sure. To my surprise I was accepted and will be attending. The best advice I can give is to try to relax and be yourself (I know it's cliche but it's true).

Yes the interview was straightforward, they just want to get to know you. So relax, be yourself, and gain the most out of the interview day!

Does anyone know if Columbia provides any need/merit-based scholarships to accepted students?

Hi guys! Can someone please tell me how much Columbia is asking for the deposit? I can't seem to find anything online.

i've talked with some current students and they said their FB group wasn't made until late february and that seems to be a trend with all the classes

For post-Dec interviews, how long does it take for CDM to notify you if you're accepted or not?

From my interview they said we could find out either this month or next month. If we hear back in January we have a month to submit a deposit but if we hear back in February we only have two weeks. So it depends but hopefully soon, I'm stressed.

It seems like the last ones were sent out in the beginning of Dec. According to their website, they interview until Feb. The latest interview date I've seen on this thread is 02/19; however, there could be ones later than that from people who don't post on here?
