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

    Is anyone else still in the process of completing prerequisites? Is it frowned upon? I still haven't completed A&P II and Nutrition.

    I am also finishing up A&P II. At the information session last year, they said they take it into consideration. Like it will be frowned upon, unfortunately.

    when they talked about outstanding pre reqs this year, they didnt really make it sound bad. as long as you have some done to give them an idea of how you'd do in the sciences its fine. she said if she came into a situation where two applicants shared stats, and one didnt have a lot of their pre reqs done, obviously theyd go with they one who had more done. but for the most part as long as you have a few of the them done, you should be alright

    I still haven't received an email about my application status. I'm hoping that doesn't mean I'm weeded out...

    Did you try to check the application website? You can see it when you log in with your pin. But if it is not up yet, they just may not have gotten all of your application together (may still be trying to match your mailed transcripts with you, etc.)

    Just try and relax It is a tough time for them too.

    I logged into the website, and my status still says submitted. I'm a bit nervous too....I wonder if they're doing it in a particular order by speciality or last name. I think I will call because if perhaps something of mine went missing....I'd want to get it in to be considered for the regular deadline.Trying not to be too concerned...but can't help but be a little anxious :/

    I was told that it takes them SO LONG to sort through application material that it can take weeks just to get confirmation that your application is ready to review. So no need to worry just yet

    PNPhopeful thanks for the kind words!! I just called, and they said all my transcripts are in but didn't have access to any status information. The lady on the phone informed me that if we had any more detailed questions, we should shoot them an email.

    I guess best thing to do is sit tight and wait. I can't help but hold my breath!!

    I think I get a little scared that I somehow messed up and want to try to get it together before the regular deadline. They picked up pretty fast by phone though if anyone is trying to contact them!

    I hope Columbia and their hospital is okay after Hurricane Sandy! I heard about the NYU hospital and how the generators stopped working during the storm. What a tragedy! Thoughts and prayers for those affected by the storm.

    Has everyone received their email about their applications being sent to admissions? I still haven't heard from them, but I assume the storm set them behind and so I guess I shouldn't worry?

    I'm a current student in the program and wanted to give everyone a heads up that emails may have been delayed after Hurricane Sandy. The entire Columbia campus was closed Monday and Tuesday and there was a skeleton staff present on Wednesday. Today (Thursday 11/1) was the first day the entire campus came back to life. The ETP group has had the last 4 days off from school! With transportation still being an issue, staff may have difficulties coming into the office. Hopefully things resolve soon and this doesn't delay communication out to all much longer. Good luck to you all! I know how nervous you may be feeling right now. Let me know if I can be of any help to you. Feel free to pm me
