    I was referring to the email that said they would be sent out on February 1 (with a bit of sarcasm) - The wait is killing me!! Also, I had no idea they'd be mailing the letters to our permanent address...mine is about 300 miles away, so not sure what I'm going to do.

    FNP...no one available to check the mail for you? Yikes. If not, maybe they can cave and tell you on the phone if you plead a good case?

    I am experiencing the same thing. My permanent (parent's) address is 1200 miles away. I suppose I'll just have them open it? That kind of sucks though... I guess you could try and explain the situation to Columbia, or you could call the post office to see if the letter could be re-routed to your mailing address? Good luck!

    Yeah, I can have someone open it - that puts my parents in a bad situation if they have to read that I'm rejected over the phone though. Oh well.

    I've decided (since i've been driving myself and everyone I know crazy) that I will believe that I have gotten in to Columbia, rather than worrying that I didn't. Since we haven't gotten the letters, technically, we may have all gotten in, we just don't know it yet.

    So congratulations FNP4Me end to everyone else on this thread!! I think we all got in, and I can't wait for us all to meet and start this crazy adventure together!!

    (ps. . . i know this makes me sound like a crazy person, but thinking I haven't gotten in and/or checking the mail morning/noon/night makes me just as much of a crazy person)

    Well the odds are with us...with historic acceptance rates of 70% and upwards. The only thing we can hold onto while we wait is the realization that we represented ourselves in the best way we can via application and that's that.

    But none of us would want to be one of those 30% right?

    As I've already received one big fat rejection (JHU), and I'm still remaining optimistic, everyone else can too! So there!

    and don't rule out the possibility of being waitlisted.
