Columbia decisions


yeah, it would be juvenile to expect everyone who's been accepted to post it on this site. for many this site is like God - one tends to think about her/him only when the going is rough ;-)

Certainly there are many who read this post and never write here and many more that dont even read it or know that it exists. This been said, I do believe that the fact that only 3 people said that they were admitted and 3-4 more told it personally or by p.m. to Dabk allows us to assume certain things:

1: Not that many people have been admitted (even if we imagine that for each one that writes here 5 or even 10 people are admitted we would only be talking about 30-70 people).

2. CLS has been quiet for some time now (unless this p.m.s Dabk received were sent this week, the last time anyone wrote here to tell about his/her admission was on feb.03)

3. Even though there are many that dont post here regularly, the ones that do (people from different parts of the world, with different credentials, that sent their applications and got their complete e-mails on different dates) havent heard anything from Columbia also, even though CLS has been reviewing files for at least one month now, so the process is probably quite slow.

You might be right, but actually: Does it all matter? I mean it doesn't matter if already 100 are admitted or not...we just know that as long as we are neither admitted nor rejected, we have not been considered!

So, all the assumptions, ifs and nots actually are just a reflection of our irrational behavior!

I was going to turn off my computer for the day, no chance of doing this any time soon now :)
@ Eponce, could you tell us when did you apply and got the "complete" e-mail and, if it is not asking too much, your credentials and where are you from?

Thank you! I am very excited, but I´m still waiting for HLS and NYU... I hope I can get funding. If not, I will probably apply for deferral.
Good luck!

Probably 500 views are on me;-) and I am sure that there are about 20 persons that visit this thread as often as I do...
