How / where did you get an email address?


I got an email update today with my Columbia.edu email address and telling me I could set up my account on the admitted students website.



hey hey! i got an email to the admitted student website too but they still ask me to use my old email address when applying. I tried the reset thing but it didnt work for me and the next time I still failed logging in. Any ideas? Thanks!!! looking forward to seeing my future classmates!

ummm... very dumb question here...
missed a call from Christina Shelby this morning when i was in a meeting... called back but no one picked up... left message but she hasn't called me back yet... and my online status did not change either...
dumb question is... a call must be non-bad news right? she wouldn't call about a rejection, would she? Anyone else that has gone through the process either admitted or rejected please help out... this is even more stressful than when i was waiting to hear back...

applied: oct. 1
interview: nov. 6
feedback: nov. 7
missed stupid call: today...

Most of the calls have come from an unlisted number so I don't want to get your hopes up but in general yes. They only call admits, you would get an email notification for a ding or waitlist. Be glad it is Monday. I missed my first call on a Friday afternoon and they didn't call again until Tuesday!

yeah, it was an unlisted number. she left a msg though so i know it was her. she asked me to call back so i did twice... once in the late morning and once again just now... but got VM both times...

i guess this is not bad news... i'll keep my fingers crossed until i hear back!

Well in that case - congrats on the admit! Christina did my call as well and online status didn't change until I got the admit letter update one business day later.

Two stupid questions but just want to make sure i am not missing anything:
1. In the employment section, you should add no. of employees and revenues only if you are self-employed, correct? It says that in the online app but not in the print-out so just want to make sure.
2. I uploaded my transcript but it does not appear in the print-out? Is that standard.

Thank you,

Are there any J-Terms still waiting to hear back? I noticed on CBS's Facebook page that there are only about 126 people. The usual class size is much higher around 196ish.. Just curious!!

Thank you,


Yes to both questions. I just double checked my proof from when I submitted in September, the transcript does not show up.
