I got my letter this morning via snail mail. Probably not attending but excited non the less.
it says "hopefully going to stonybrook"... my money is on you going there, you did get accepted there...
Gotta change that gimme 2 mins lol.
Yeah! I got the snail mail 5 minutes ago
I am sooooooooooooo happy
I was so grumpy for past few days...
good luck to everyone!
if you dont mind me asking, what part of the country are you in? im hoping to get mine in MN today
I live in Long Island..
2 hours away from school..
I guess people living out of NY will get it by end of this week..
good luck to you
I live in Montreal
Because it is only 1.5hr flight to NYC,
I thought I would be able to get the letter today or tomorrow.
Knowing that Jayeon, NY resident received it today (congrats!),
I guess it would take awhile...........
Can't concentrate on my work.............
BTW, on predents.com, there is one Cali resident
who got accepted. That was fast....
maybe he/she called out of impatience? i think the deans told us that we could after a week but whateversss hahaaha
in last cycle..
Majority recieved the letter between 12/1~12/7.
Do you guys think they will surely send any letter? (Accepted, Wait listed, Rejected)
I didnt make a phone call haha
Are u sure that I can contact the admission office
asking the result after a week?
That would give me some relief in case i dont get anything
by the end of this week.
That's what Dr. McManus said--we'll be notified of one of those three results.
I also remember they decide it two(one??) weeks after each interview.
i got my letter in a manila envelope today.... i live in NJ, so i was really anxious to get a letter this week... BUT NOW I'M SO EXCITED!!! MY TOP CHOICE!!!! HOPE TO SEE SOME OF YOU NEXT AUGUST!!!!
It should arrive soon..!
I live 2 hours away by car..
so by tmr or friday you should get it..
I know how you feel..waiting really sucks...!
I couldn't do anything since thanksgiving break..haha
Just got my letter today. I live in LA. My TOP CHOICE SCHOOL!! Time to go celebrate
I interviewed on November 21 and was accepted on Dec 1. Thats about a week and a half.
I got my acceptance letter at my permanent address back home!!! I was soooooo anxious last night, I don't think I could've waited any longer. My parents called me to tell me the good news -- it's my top choice! Hope I see you some of you in August!!
Accepted today in the mail!
I really liked the personal messages the deans wrote for us at the bottom...I really thought that was a nice touch.
Yay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My mom just opened the letter! accepted into columbia, rejected from florida...go figure!
my mom just got the letter in the mail today...my #1 choice SOOOO HAPPY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
ok back to studying for finals now..lol
accepted here as well. now where am i going to come up with the monies?
loans, loans, and more loans
so who's definitely attending columbia? i'm about 90% sure at this point..
guyss, im from cali and columbia is my top choice, but i still havent received it. anyone from cali still waiting??
i'm about 98% sure i'm attending...
Accepted yesterday too - I live outside of Philadelphia (for those of you who are still anxiously waiting)...
I still have a lot of thinking to do, but I'm about 75% sure Columbia isn't for me - things can change between now and Jan 15 though!
Congrats to everyone
jlee - are you thinking columbia over penn mainly due to cost, or do you have other reasons? if so, i could use the input!
Im with you on this PSU, I am like 95% sure that Columbia is not for me. That is based on their heavy medical school curriculum and their sub-par clinical training.
yeah i definitely feel you on their lack of clinical training. their facilities left much to be desired too... the "dental school" was what, like 4 floors to a medical building? and this is aside from the fact that i think i'd hate living in NYC and having to pay $1200-1500/mo for a small dorm-sized apartment (if i'm wrong about this, please correct me).
and actually, the only thing that is keeping columbia in the running for me is their combined curriculum with the med school - i think this holistic approach to dentistry is interesting, although i'm not sure how much it'll really help us clinically in the "real world". specialty program directors seem to dig it ...
and oh yeah, the H/P/F grading system is a plus too.
i'm picking columbia over penn because of cost (it's about $8,000 more per year x 4 years..which is ~$32,000) and also because the two schools are totally opposite of each other in my mind, not to mention that columbia has the p/f system and the integrated science classes. i'm also most likely going to specialize, so even though columbia may have not as much clinical training as much as penn, i'm thinking that i will get it during my specialization training.
also, about housing: it's actually not too bad living in washington heights in terms of cost. i'm going to school right now in ann arbor and to be honest, i pay about the same in rent (~$650-$700) here compared to some of the prices listed on this columbia housing website: http://www.cumc-housing.columbia.edu/accom.html. and let me tell you, nyc is a lot more exciting than ann arbor lol. what school are you thinking about attending?
like i said, i have a ton of thinking and research to do before jan 15, but as of right now, i'm thinking it's going to come down to maryland, UNC (i'm hoping i get in), and columbia. i met a D4 at columbia during the interview who also was a penn state grad, so i'll be contacting him soon to get his 2 cents.
i had a great experience at both maryland and UNC. i have a friend at maryland who's a D3 and she's been trying to do everything she can to make me seriously consider maryland over penn & columbia... and so far, it's working. UNC was a great interview experience for me and based on everything i've heard, it's reputation is stellar in the dental community... my only reservation is that it's so far away from all my friends and family. both schools had phenomenal facilities and ample research ops in my mind.
although i loved penn, and probably would've gone there in a heartbeat had i gotten the dean's scholarship, it's just too freakin expensive. Based on the estimated budgets we got from each of the schools at the interviews, ALL costs factored in (tuition, fees, estimated living expenses), the difference btw penn & columbia actually comes out to a little over $10,000/year!
Penn state and UPenn are two different schools.. no?
Yes, maybe he meant Upenn grad. Penn state is not ivy league.
So, I'm at work, and my brother just called me to let me know I got in. Wow, the decisions just keep getting tougher.
i'm pretty sure he meant a D4 at columbia who graduated from penn state undergrad..
Hey I interviewed on Nov 21st also and got in Dec 1st. There were so many people there at the interview. Im curious which of the interviewees you are?
haha... jlee understood what i meant
ok let's see... UPenn with scholarship, UNC with scholarship, and columbia... so many people would sacrifice limbs to be you right now
i 90% envy you and 10% don't
Im in! just got the call from my parent at home, finally, the wait was killing me.
anyone from michigan hear back yet? ive been accepted at other schools but I cant feel happy bc the only one I really loved was Columbia!
Got my acceptance letter today from Columbia!
I got accepted today! I'm in socal for those who are wondering when things are getting where. woot woot!
Received my package today in So Cal also. I really loved this school...gotta make such a tough decision!!
just got my letter today!! postmarked on the first... what the hell took it so long to get to illinois????
got the letter today in MN. i liked the school, but i don't know if i would want to be in nyc for 4 years... tough decisions!!
Received the letter today in IL. This is my first acceptance letter
anybody know if columbia has summer research for incoming student. do they use vitalbook (on computer) or paper books?
Acceptance letter received via snail mail today! (in CA)
