12/4- MD: Status check says 'decision made'.
12/9- MD: Received letter, accepted.
12/23- I called NYU because I never received an email saying I went complete. They said I had gone complete.
12/26- NYU: Received letter, accepted (no status check online). Im an anxious person and very rarely do happy moments actually change my anxiety physiologically, but this acceptance left me with a warm, glowy feeling body and mind, with no worries, at least for a couple days!
1/5- Columbia: I applied ED, and I didn't receive a response by 12/31...I followed up and they emailed me a pdf file...they told me they couldnt make a decision, released me from my ED obligations, and said they'd get back to me as if I was a regular applicant.
1/20- GW: Received letter, accepted (no status check online). Scholarship awarded.
1/25- Georgetown: Status check says a decision has been made.
1/26-Georgetown: Received letter, accepted.
1/29- This is going well for me. I considered applying to Boalt and Penn but they have extra length or extra number of essays, which I had little time to write, so I postponed writing them until after I heard from Columbia ED. That didnt pan out so well but NYU got to me very quickly and I just figured i'd go there above the two postponements, so I decided not to go for it. Saved 160 bucks or so too.
4/12- Went to Scholars Interview for MD on 4/9, today they awarded me 20k.
4/21- And Columbia still not back to me. Like everyone I know has had this same experience. Thanks, Columbia. Mailing in my acceptance to NYU tomorrow!
