Stand, Columbia, Alma Mater

Once upon a time in 2006, Columbia sent out admissions decisions to its class of 2010 applicants. It sent the acceptance packages out via FedEx, which was made clear by pictures posted on a campus blog.
So, some resourceful Columbia prefrosh called FedEx to find out if there was a package from Columbia coming for them. If there was, they knew they got in. If there wasn't, they knew they had been rejected along with 91% of applicants.
This, I think, is a pretty pathetic way of finding out whether you got into college.
A friend points out that this Web site, however, is equally pathetic. I agree. And I am blocking it. Really.
