    I'm waiting for a response back from School X. This school calls people they accept to let them know. I'm going abroad and will have sketchy cellphone service for the next four or five months and at some points may not even have cell service at all. Can I call, explain my situation, and expect that if they know anything, they'll tell me?

    Try. If not, change your voicemail to "Hi, thanks for calling Obsessive-Dental-Applicant. I am having a fabulous time in _________ and will have spotty cell phone service. I will return your call within 48 hrs."

    seems like it would work to me!

    have fun

    Leave your cellphone with your mom and if Columbia calls, have her pretend to be you.

    Even if Columbia does tell you something, you still have to fill out the forms that they will send you.

    Just let them know that you'll be out of the country and ask them to send you an e-mail regarding your status once it has been determined.
