The thread here for the Columbia University ETP program for entry in 2012 is pretty long (45 pages right now!), so I was hoping to elicit some of the same responses for those who are applying in... Read More

    I heard there wasn't interviews for Columbia, I could be wrong but I read that on the previous years thread. I think we just find out if we are admitted in February, unless it's changed.

    I'm sure many people went with the 2 page limit since that is written everywhere and the 500 word limit is only specified on the application checklist. I went with the 500 word limit. On one hand, the word limit might be there just so people know not to go over the two pages. However, it could be there to see who looked at the checklist and followed every last word of the the instructions. We have to understand that adcom will be reading A LOT of personal statements and we can't rely on them to forgive/ give them any reason to take points off our applications.

    Then again, I didn't attend the information session so I can't give you a definite answer. I know how hard it was to cut down the essay (I had to cut out almost 200 words lol). I played it safe, but I doubt adcom has an app that counts the amount of words on each essay. The most important thing is to make sure your essay doesn't look different from all the others. If you really can't make it more concise, I'm pretty sure the word count won't be a make it or break it factor.

    I applied for the Psych specialty too! I hear there are not a lot of students who go this route. I'm wondering if it is due to less interest or that they only admit a small number.

    Wait a sec, so it IS rolling admission? When I called and asked they said it wouldn't make much of a difference when you submit the app. I decided not to submit yesterday so I can add some more details and make it perfect. Wish I read this earlier... Anyone else on the same boat?

    Anyone know how much Columbia likes people with direct patient care? or does it not really matter?

    I don't know how I am going to wait until February!! It's been two days since I've submitted my application and I've already checked the website 3872828 times for no logical reason - it's not like they'd give us a decision that quick - but I'm just so anxious

    I think direct patient care will always give you an edge but since they don't have a requirement or even mention it I don't think it's that big of a deal if you don't have any. But I think it does make it more difficult to explain why you chose your particular speciality

    I heard that too actually. I feel like it may be due to less interest. Good luck, hopefully we all make it!

    Just got an email with a link to my application status! That was quick. They had said they'd send it "within the next several weeks" but hey I'm definitely not complaining that it only took them 4 days!

    Received my application status today too! "Your file has been forwarded to the Admissions Committee for review."- So nervous!
