I emailed them several weeks ago, and got this as a response:
"Your application is still under review. We expect that the faculty committee on admissions will return all Ph.D. decisions in mid March. You will be notified via email when a decision has been reached."
They told me they're still waiting on people to reject their offers, so they don't have a good idea right now. Said they'd be more certain by the week before April 15. Except they haven't rejected ANYONE, so for all I know that just means they're witholding my rejection status until then.
I don't like Columbia. It is the only school that is quiet all the time, and did not answer my email even when I emailed to add an extra credential to my application (a 2 months research program with a famous professor). Northwestern and Michigan answered me promptly. Columbia even has a very early deadline.
