Dont know the numbers, but I know apps are due really soon (I think July 1st for one with it complete by July 15, and July 15th for the other).  Good luck!  From all I have heard, it is a pretty random process, so just give it a shot.

Chances: 0% if you don't send in an app. >0% if you do. The app costs $90 or whatever. It is a lotto ticket worth buying, even if the odds are only 50/50. Your odds are probably better than 50/50. Apply.

Already have applied! Anxiously awaiting, and trying to put myself in the right frame of mind for notification.

Well, on the bright side, it is kinda win/win.  Either, you get into one of them and graduate from a great school, or you end up at your school but are at the top of the class.

The only states I really have regarding either are my friends from here.  top 20 school.  They were roughly top 12-18% (one went to Columbia one went to NYU).  That is just my rough estimate of their rankings.

You and I are in the same boat.  Faculty from my school tell me that based on transfers over the past several years, chances are decent to good.  Good luck!

I'll join the waiting thread as well. Just sent in the apps yesterday. BTW, Columbia's form requirement is brutal when you have attended multiple schools for undergrad. Sweet jesus.

Agreed! Same situation for me as well.  Found out about the Dean's Cert. needed from every undergrad you attended after I thought I was done with the app.  What a hassle.

I was told every undergraduate institution where one matriculated as a degree seeking student.  That restriction knocked out two for me, luckily. 

The forms weren't that big of a deal (I made sure all were sent back to me so I knew when they were complete), but with one school I had a terrible time getting someone to complete the form.  From what I can tell, the form went to 6 different offices before someone completed it. "I don't have information on aspect X, that's office Y," "I don't know you personally," "The person who should fill this out passed away 3 years ago..."
