Columbia GS Fall 2021 Early/Regular Decision Thread

congrats! can you share your stats?

Sure. Academics wise: two semesters with total of 37 credits taken at a community college with a 4.0 GPA while working full-time as a software engineer.


Congratulations! Did they email you or just send a letter?

Sure! I was a full time student with 3.945 gpa, dean’s list and honors. Also had 3 years of working experience.
To be honest, if you have a good gpa, have some working experience (doesn’t have to be extravagant) that you were passionate about, all that matters is what you write on your essay.
They want to know why you are a non-trad, what you want to achieve at Columbia, why you want to come here etc.
Don’t worry good things are ahead of you! Good luck :slight_smile:

Saw the letter upon logging in into the portal

lol still didn’t receive a decision

I think I should also clarify - I applied for part-time studies rather that full-time, I think they might have different assessment policies for part-time admission. Anyways, Congrats everyone! Hoping for next week :slight_smile:

I received a short email yesterday from the director of admissions:

… Your application is currently under review and it should come before the admissions committee soon for a vote. …

May I ask if anyone had received anything similar to mine prior to the week where you received the outcome?
