Still not complete at Columbia. I don't think it's their fault... I think it's my UG's fault... but I'm still annoyed that they can't do like Duke and just require the Dean's Cert if you decide to go there.
So, on 12/23 after getting my LSAT score, I decided to apply to Columbia. I sent the dean's cert form to my UG that day. My UG has a system I can log into, where I can see if dean's certs have been sent. My Cornell and W&L ones went through without a hitch. But my Columbia one still hadn't been sent four weeks after I mailed it. So I called them, and they put me on hold and then said, "Oh, your form just arrived in yesterday's mail." Yeah, right. You just found it in a pile on your desk.
So, the little online system said that they mailed it to Columbia on 1/24. Well, yesterday Columbia let me know they still haven't received it. :/ So TWO MONTHS after I sent the form, I'm still at incomplete at Columbia, and who knows when this will be resolved.
At this point, I'm into other schools I'm very interested in, but it feels like a great big waste of $80 to not get on the phone and harrass my UG. And even more annoying because I got a fee waiver after the fact.
