When do we need to tell them our decision of going/not going by? I thought maybe I could update it online but it still says "Submitted" and not "accepted" though I got the accepted call this morning.

@zeroxiey Not sure which track you applied to, but just fyi they are both in the Creative Producing program which does everything a week or so earlier than Writing/Directing applicants. At least that's how it was in the past!

Congratulations!!! When was your interview if you don't mind me asking? Mine was Feb 17th and I'm just waiting for when my call will come?
It was on the 18th of February... I'm sure they just started making the calls... last year they made calls over a span of 5 days

I got a call today as well - I got in to the Creative Producing program! Interviewed March 2nd.
Congrats! Since you're already a Supporting Member I gave you the Columbia badge so you should now have access to the private Columbia forum. :)
