I also emailed the admissions office and just received a message that my application is still under review and I should expect to hear back any time from this week-middle of April.
Hey! May I ask when you interviewed? Was about to call and check up on the status of my application as well.

For those who have been accepted was there a date on your acceptance letter on which you need to reply with a decision. I'm curious as I am still waiting to hear. Thanks!

I think the date is later for screenwriting/directing, but for creative producing students the deadline to accept is April 15th.

Hey, guys, I believe the deadline for committing to the directing/screenwriting program is around April 28 or someone around the end of April.

While you’re waiting, the BEST piece of advice I received this semester from Maureen Ryan is have a skill.

Of course you’re not going to Columbia to learn how to be a sound mixer or an editor, but having those skills:

1. Will help and your peers in the program.
2. Pay the bills if a script isn’t selling.
3. Keeps your foot in the door.

Her book “Producer to Producer” is a great book to review before her class your 2nd semester.

has anyone heard about rejections / waitlists yet?
Still nothing. I'm surprised it's taking so long to get all the decisions out but considering how dispersed the admissions office likely is at this time it makes sense

I just got waitlisted! I honestly didn't think my interview went that well so I'll take it!
