Has anyone heard back from Columbia yet? It still says "none" on my portal.
 
I have not heard anything either but mine change to received/under review. I email them to request a fee waiver but they didn't get back to me yet. I guess we just have to play the waiting game.

Not sure yet but I heard if you pay prior, you might have to pay again with no refund after they send out the email. I would just wait.
 
Got an email on Monday saying they’re reviewing the app for any missing materials. Nothing about payment yet
 
Where did you see/hear this? I'm worried now lol
Hey sorry I meant that if you pay prior and you pay again after they send the email then they will not refund. I think you are fine if you pay prior but I would just wait for their email about the payments. I called in to Columbia and the admission told me that they will not do anything until august.

Has anyone received the email requesting payment for the supplemental fee?

My bad, I thought i was replying in the UPenn dental forum. I received that exact same email as well.
 
How long did it take for everyone to receive a confirmation and request for payment email after submitting their app? I submitted mine last week and never received anything
I submitted June 1st and have not heard anything from columbia. Radio silence from them
 
Last year's thread says they got invites around 8/21 so probably won't hear back until then. Just gotta wait!

Submitted mine and adea still says “none” and haven’t received an email to pay the supplemental application? Anyone else have this ?
 
you're supposed to pay the supplemental application fee on their website. Apply

note: scroll to bottom, although there are two Application Fee boxes, you only need to fill out one. I used the first one, probably is a web design error.
I forwarded my fap email to Columbia over a month ago to waive the fee and still got nothing back
 
My status changed this morning. It now says my application has been recieved and is under review. My DAT was not verified until August 11th. (I tested on July 29th).

Did you guys wait for an email to pay supplemental fee? I applied recently and not sure if I should pay it on their website or wait.
 
Did anyone get an interview invite? I got one but after replying to confirm my interview with the email they gave me, I haven’t heard back

your app was complete 8/16 and you got an invite that early??? That's impressive.

Do they email you the link to the supplemental application? I haven't received one yet, submitted app and fee two weeks ago
 
I received an interview invite without having to fill out a supplemental application... I don't think it exists.

Did anyone get an email today to delaying their interview from 830 to 10 am or was that just me?
 
On Reddit, someone said that Columbia is no longer sending out pre-Dec interviews since all interview slots up until 12/15 have been booked. Could someone confirm?
 
Did people get an application complete email? I only got an email that my app was recieved!

Is it an absolute necessity to have 3 science letters of rec? Has anyone gotten an interview with only 2? Just trying to gauge if I need to secure a third science letter of rec (I already applied, but only with 2)
