I have some deadlines coming in a couple of days and wanted to ask for an expedite decision from CLS. I remember reading some posts that stated that when other people asked for it, they got a response within the next couple of days but, unfortunately, the response was a rejection.
Do you guys know of anyone that submitted a similar request and actually received an admission letter?
I don't want to risk sending the request if it will interfere in any way with obtaining a positive rather than a negative result.
Some feedback in this regard would be very much appreciated.
I remember seing someone in this thread that asked for an expedite decision and was admitted, but i am not sure.
I have no other option at this moment, so coincidently I was just now drafting an e-mail to Columbia asking for an expedite decision...
Indeed I hope it does not harm my admission...fingers crossed!!
To be sure, I searched for it again. It is in the thread "Columbia - Regular cycle", posted by a guy named "kollaps":

I asked for an expedited review on Tuesday and got an admission offer yesterday. I'm very very happy!
Best of luck for those still waiting!
Yep, it worked for me. However, as far as I can remember, in the same week 2 other applicants asked for an expedited review and got rejected.
Be sure you have other admissions pending (better with a financial aid or scholarship) before asking for an expedited review!
