    Got the same email. I guess what's done is done! I bet you will get it on Saturday. Depends what time they mailed them.

    I just got an email from Columbia letting me know that my decision letter has been mailed. They won't tell people over the phone or email, but I assume they'll email everyone about their decision letters so people can be on the lookout in the mail. But if you're like me, you check your mailbox three or four times a day anyways!

    According to Gmail, the email re: the letter was sent at around 5PM, which means that the letters were either not picked up, or were picked up by the 5PM carrier. If the latter situation is true, I believe that people living in NYC may have the letter on Saturday!!!!

    So you think that if we live in NYC, we won't get the letter until Saturday? I was hoping that we might have a chance to get it tomorrow. That just means one extra day of feeling nauseated until we finally get the letters, I guess. I hope that all of you who have posted get the responses that you all are looking for! By the way, do any of you know the exact admissions statistics for Columbia? So that way, if I get rejected, I can know just how bad I should feel about it

    here's a site i found regarding admissions statistics. although it's only up until 2005. on a slightly positive note--the acceptance rates were all above 50%!

    So people in NYC have already received their letters? Oh God....now I will be going downstairs to check for the mail about every 10 minutes or so. Congratulations to everyone who already found out! To anyone who was accepted...are you definitely going to Columbia or still waiting for letters from other schools? I will definitely go if I am accepted so I really really hope it works out

    Congrats Anniepants and Kurlyz! :hatparty:

    Have any non-NYC-ers gotten their letters yet? Let us know where you are if you do!

    I'm in Boston and I don't know if I should go home from work to check or if it's too early to get my hopes up!

    Edit: Went home and it's here and I'm in! :smiley_aa Good luck everyone!
