Columbia MAFN Columbia MAFN Waitlist

Hello Everyone!

I received an update from Columbia MAFN stating that I was placed on a short waitlist. I wanted to get a rough idea on how long it takes to give me a result, and what are the chances of getting an admit ?

Thank you so much!

Hey, I was initially placed on the wl and then received an offer only 2-3 days later, so no worries, it is indeed a "short waitlist" :). BTW my offer was about a month ago.
And for people who did not receive any updates, will they still have a chance?
I'd say you still have a good chance since I remember they send offers at least till May (read it somewhere on their website I think). Also, the admission is rolling so perhaps they just haven't gone over yours yet.

Good luck to both of you!

Hi, I got an email on 15th March informing me about my waitlist status and asking me to confirm my waitlist position by 23rd March.

yeah, mine was pretty much the same. I confirmed my wl decision immediately and they sent out an offer only 2-3 days later. I have also seen a few other folks who were waitlisted and received offers a few days after they confirmed wl. I guess yours would be similar
 
I was in a very similar situation. I got waitlisted Feb 24 and then got admitted Feb 25. I did send an email to one of the program directors the next day expressing my interest too. I don’t know how much it helped but it definitely couldn’t have hurt.
 
I was placed on a short waitlist on 3.23 and got admit on 3.28. dont worry, in 1point3acres, it is like 80% people in waitlist get admit in a month
