    I'm going to specialize in Policy Practice too! I can't quite tell how popular it is.

    Oh, for sure, and likely private loans too which doesn't exactly thrill me. Oh! That is a hell of a change. @toofunny is probably right about not enough people applying.

    Columbia University MSW Fall 2019

    I think so. I still have a few things to figure out, but unless something goes horribly wrong, I'll be there. What was the original deadline?

    Congrats!! I received the financial aid letter within a week of being accepted.

    You may have to speak to the Director of Admissions for an appeal. There's more info here under What if I’m not satisfied with my package? https://socialwork.columbia.edu/current-students/first-year-faq

    I was 💯 sure I didn't have a chance with Columbia because I didn't get into NYU but then I got into Columbia. (Coincidentally, my opinion of NYU has fallen dramatically recently NOT THAT I'M BITTER.) My point, and I do have one, is you really never know until you get a response.

    My acceptance email came tonight. I'm more than a bit shocked.

    The final deadline to apply is Feb. 15, one week from now. I hope we get our decisions before that deadline next week as others have hinted at above, otherwise applying for the priority deadline was kind of pointless.

    Fall 2019 Applications

    Ugh. I think it's time to ask someone else. It's not worth risking your entire application because of one person.

    Fall 2019 Applications

    I agree with all of this. If you ask a new person for a recommendation, it's not like you have to call out your thesis adviser by name. I think it's enough to say you can't get into touch with one of the three recommenders you asked two months ago and the deadline is fast approaching.

    reusing old essay?

    I used different versions of the same essay on my applications and have gotten into two schools and am waiting to hear back on another two. As long as the essay is your own work and answers the question asked, I don't think it should be a problem.

    I agree 60% seems high. I wish there was a way to confirm this because I've seen acceptance rates that are all over the place. Still, it seems like the cost of attendance is the limiting factor with Columbia instead of the acceptance rate.

    I went to a Q&A (in Feb, I think) and when someone asked about scholarships, the answer was basically, "Our tuition is low so there aren't many scholarships." Not sure what that means in practice, but I'm not holding my breath.
