  • Replying to Columbia MFA commenter below. I’d be interested to know what you’ve heard about the waitlist and likelihood of admission. I was initially (mid-March) told I was on a “small & select” waitlist, then didn’t hear anything until 2 weeks ago (beginning of May) when I emailed to follow up. Got a friendly but neutral email from admissions office saying basically they’d be in touch if a spot opened up between May and August. I’d like to have some idea of how many people are on this list (I am also creative nonfiction...), and whether it’s moved much in May-August in past years.

  • I hear conflicting stories about an admission from the Columbia waitlist - although I imagine it is different for different programs. I only applied to Columbia because I have to remain in New York. I could have applied to Hunter, and maybe I should have but I've heard their admissions rate is lower. Any insights?
