ok, so i was admitted to columbia SEAS w/o an interview. Then today i got an email from Steven Nowick (chair of the Computer Engineering program, apparently), saying he is interested in talking to me on the phone b/c of my "potential interest"???.
I am guessing this is a good thing? but i m just wondering did anyone else get similar emails/calls from other professors? Is this more or less an interview? I just don't want to be seen as an idiot.
