Columbia Univ. - Communications PhD


Recommended Posts

Just curious as to whether anyone else applied to this program -- and if so, have you heard anything from them?

It's a longshot, but now that this process is winding down I'm eager to hear back from them! I've heard from all of my other schools, but radio silence from Columbia.

I'm also applying.

But I don't expect to hear from them any time soon. And: They only accept 2 students. So I don't think I have a realistic chance of being accepted...

The website says "Decisions will be posted in mid March"! (I checked about 12 hrs ago, when there wasn't anything; so this message is fairly new)

I was waitlisted for this program last year and found out about my status the second week of March.

So it's going to be just a couple days waiting.... Even though I'm pretty much sure I'll be rejected, I would like to know as soon as possible... just to put that aside and concentrate on my other schools who didn't get back to me yet.

Thanks for the info, CaitlinCM.

Kathiza, my status was just updated this morning, changed from "Under Review" to "Application Complete." It's weird because "Application Complete" was the status I had before "Under Review," and now I'm back to it. Oh well! I actually called yesterday and spoke to someone who said decisions would be sent out via email after the 15th (today). I have a couple of schools breathing down my neck to make a decision sooner than later, but I refuse to do that until I've heard back from everywhere!

And they have spring break next week - so I'm sure they'll send out everything this week. It's just so nervewrecking to know that my decision e-mail might be processed so slowly and I will only hear from them next week.... I finally want to have all my decisions to be able to decide where I want to go...

I know this might be a stupid question since I really expect to be rejected, but did they say if they send out funding info together with the admission decision or if admitted students have to wait again for funding info?
