Does Columbia Send Likely Letters?

<p>I heard that they did, if they do, does anyone know around what month they will do so? Thanks.</p>

<p>I recall SEAS applicants getting likely letters, but not CC though.</p>

<p>what exactly is a likely letter?</p>

<p>It's a letter sent out before the official notification letter telling you that you're likely to be admitted.</p>

<p>huh. why?</p>

<p>To gain an edge in matriculating the top applicans.</p>

<p>I got a likely letter from CC, but it was because of athletic recruitment in my case. I'm not sure about others...</p>

<p>I didn't get one from Columbia, FWIW. They do likely letters in mid-March. I have no idea how common they are at Columbia. Why do they do them? To get you thinking about Columbia.</p>
