This is the sixth entry in our “Top 10″ list for you to consider when communicating with our office and applying.
Number 6 – If you must mail something to our office, use a private mail courier.
Columbia is a huge university with one central mail room. All “standard” mail is funneled to the main mail room and it can take a week or more for mail to be sorted and sent on to us.
By utilizing a mail carrier the parcel will be sent directly to our office, avoiding delays. Also, we highly recommend getting a tracking number whenever something is mailed to our office. This way, the moment we sign for the package the courier will log delivery and you will be notified if you have signed up for email notification.
Better yet, 100% of your documents needed for admission consideration may be submitted on our site so you may want to consider uploading your information rather than sending anything by mail.
