if you apply in the first couple of batches and don't get an interview invite (high stats i.e. DAT 23+) does that mean that you probably wont hear back from them? :(
I'm in the same boat... :(

Being real - I think our chances are slim to none if we submitting early and haven't heard back. They looked at our app and moved on. They CAN go back and retake a look, but chances are slim
I submitted 7/31. Didn't get an interview offer until February. Don't count yourselves out, they do things their own way lol.

I just found out about SDN so I'm not sure how it works, but I have an interview to Columbia on Oct. 7th as my first interview. Anyone else have one then or does anyone have any tips?

Anyone else just get an email from Columbia saying that they have received your application fee? This is the third, exact same email I have been sent from them. What does it mean, if anything??

Did anyone else get two confirmations of "Received Supplemental Fee"? I received one Aug 8 and one today lol. Would it be weird to call in and ask about it?

From the first email I received from them regarding the fee.

"This is to notify you that we have received your supplemental application fee of $75. We will be in touch regarding any changes to your application status. We want to update everyone often, so you may receive this notification several times.

Thank you for your payment.

I imagine repeat fee emails are meaningless

Did anyone here receive an "application complete" notice (email) from the school?
I took my DAT after submitting my AADSAS application and the last email I received from the school was about the receipt of my AADSAS application on July 8th.

Last email I got from Columbia was about receiving my supplemental fee a couple weeks back:

"This is to notify you that we have received your supplemental application fee of $75. We will be in touch regarding any changes to your application status.

Does anyone know if there's another email after this? I.e. Something that's more or less means "application complete"?

Or do we take this as the app complete email?

Mail out was 7/29.
Supplemental confirmation (the first one, at least) was 8/08.

Hmm.. I checked last year's thread, and a handful of people got their interviews in October. But knowing that pre-december interview spot for this year is already booked, I am kinda worried.

How strict is Columbia on 3 science LOR? I have 2 science LOR and 2 dentists.
