Interviewed on 1/15 and haven't heard back. Does that mean that I have no hope? :(

Can someone please confirm that this is the tuition chart for this year? Also, does the interest start when you start taking the loans or accumulate after graduation? Thanks!

Yes and yes. Interest typically fluctuates between 5-6 percent. So that's an additional 5-6k a year (also is compound interest). Then you have to add cost of living and the additional interest with that.

To those of you who submitted a deposit, did you receive any confirmation and how long did it take for your AADSAS status to change?

don’t know if it would be annoying to them to call about it because my deposit was just delivered on Friday.

I submitted my deposit back in dec but I got a confirmation email ~2 weeks after it was received. They sent out an email saying not to worry and they'll reach out to you as soon as they process your deposit so I would just sit tight for a bit :)

Hey Guys! I have a quick question. Is the interview for this college open file or closed-file? Thanks so much!

Hey! I had another quick question. Do we interview with a faculty member or someone from admissions? Thanks so much! :)
It's with someone from admissions. Some may be faculty and others may be alumni or past faculty (I know some interviewers were).

I was contacting them at least once a month with updates to my application. To be totally honest, I don’t know if its extremely necessary this early but definitely as the cycle goes on. It wouldn't hurt though.
When you emailed them updates did they respond? I emailed them two updates and havent got any response. Not sure if I should try calling. Anyone have any advice on how to reach out to them?

I’ve emailed them a few times to ask about my letters but they never responded. I also tried calling and leaving voicemails but never got a response.

Does anybody know the specifics of CDM’s math requirement? What constitutes “college-level” math?

Has anyone heard anything after Columbia received your deposit? I am eager to meet other people in the CDM Class of 2025!!
Same questions! I have received an email saying that my deposit has arrived, but nothing more than that.

Update: Columbia’s interview day and interview were fantastic. Was very on the border of which school to attend but if I get accepted I’d come here. Such a nice program

Do they send out rejections? Or do they just ghost you?
CDM is a master of ghosting. They may have invented the phrase "ghosting" haha 😂. A good analogy for CDM would be like a person who ghosts everyone after the first date cause they think they are the best commodity out there 😝

I believe they mentioned we were the last interview group to those who were wondering. They joked about “messing things up on the last day” when there was a slight audio problem

I also submitted my deposit back in December but I never got a confirmation email... I contacted them multiple times but never got a response :( I did see that they deposited my check though. Should I be worried?

If your aadsas portal says offer accepted then you’re good

Anyone from the Feb interview group hear anything or have we been ghosted? Sorry for asking so much haha. I'd thought they would get back to us sooner.

The email from Ms. DeLeon for accepted students says we are supposed to hold off on creating any Columbia email account. Does anyone know if that means we shouldn't activate our UNI (University Identifier) yet? Thanks!
