    Has anyone else been receiving emails from various programs at Columbia other than the med school (nutrition, their program in Israel, etc.)? Is this a hint that they don't think I'm med school material? :smuggrin:

    Got 'em too. Almost as bad as getting those pamphlets from Caribbean schools.

    Well, I got them and I didn't even apply to Columbia. What does that mean and how did they get my email address?? :confused:

    I got them all too. My guess is that these materials are sent out to everyone who applies there. Safeflower, I have no idea why you're getting them though!

    It sounds like these pamphlets are sent to people who did not even apply to Columbia. That indicates that you are receiving them because you checked the box on AMCAS or the MCAT that says "It's ok for schools to send recruiting materials to me."

    Thanks Photo! I applied, and haven't been getting e-mails . . . I was starting to worry that they didn't think I was good enough to be blown into little pieces while studying food. Now I feel better.

    I agree. To me, these emails come with the smell of rejection. I hate it when they do that stuff.
