check on their website. they say they only do app status on wednesdays via phone and everyday from a certain email address. i called the number today and got in touch with the dean in one ring---very nice, down to earth guy.

good luck!

I called on a Wednesday, got a recorded message to email instead, then emailed and never got a response to my email. But I received an interview invite later anyway, so it didn't bother me too much.

that's a bummer. it says to give them 24-48 hours....keep waiting but don't be too pushy. i actually work at columbia, so it's probably not fair that i said he answered, he probably has caller id and just saw the columbia number and picked up. i didn't ask about my status though (probalby should have since it's been difficult) i had another question.
