And So it Begins…

Written by

Though applicants are not notified until the fifteenth, at least 47 of 2012’s damndest have gained Early Early Admission acceptance. Congratulations?

Naturally, the sneaky 47 have already made a Facebook group, thereby getting a healthy head start on the path from (best!) Facebook friends (forever!) to avoiding eye contact during the Blaze.

UPDATE 9:51 PM: 2012 begins defending themselves on Bwog. Also, the ED notices were apparently posted online today at 5 PM.





  1. CC 2012

    Actually, Early Decision notices were posted online as of 5pm today.

  2. roflcopter

    points and laughs.
    look at the little pre-frosh already posting on bwog.

  3. OMG  

    werner herzog's son!!!

  4. ED09  

    They did the same thing back in '09. The nice thing was that I didn't even have to open the e-mail because GMail shows the first few words

  5. ED 2012  

    The class of 2012 has Erectile Dysfunction.

  6. wirc  

    Just remember kids, you'll be the inaugural class of the Manhattanville Campus.

  7. oh my  

    poor little things. mere babes unknowingly casting their souls into a deep, $200k abyss.

    note: 12ers, don't read bwog comments during finals week.

  8. meh  

    i was fucking miserable my freshman year, but it got better after that.

  9. why  

    does each year's class get more and more obnoxious?

  10. lolCore  

    I has nevr been so miserable since i wrote dis LitHum papr

  11. well  

    Freshman year was a wonderful mix everything you thought college would be: weed! alcohol! woah, I have a girlfriend! sex! all of the above at once!

    Once you hit Sophomore year (or for the lucky, second semester Freshman year), college actually begins, and everything just kind of sucks.

  12. fuck it man  

    Harvard announcing the whole finaid thing pisses over everyone.

  13. actually  

    come to think about it, i feel kind of an asshole for publishing her name on the internet. bwog should take my posts down.

  14. first year

    Freshman year, especially the first semester, was terrific.

  15. Recontextualized  

    After that comment was deleted, I enjoy the new dynamic between comment 23 and 24.

  16. Santa  

    I can't believe the 2012ers were so quick to make a Facebook group!

    So does it boil down to
    a) Receive email
    b) Read it, click the link and yell out in excitement
    c) Tell friends, mom and dad, and family
    d) Tells kids next day at school
    e) Create Facebook group INSTANTLY and wait eagerly to join the Columbia network?

    Why does something tell me I've misplaced "e)" in the order?

  17. The Post Was  

    It was something about a guy wanting to engage in sexual intercourse with 2012ers come 2008 NSOP.

  18. Hey Bwog  

    Vikram Pandit, Columbia undergrad and grad school alum and current Trustee, was just appointed CEO of Citigroup. Is naiice.

  19. SEAS '12

    wait i got accepted "early early" does this mean when i'm an upper classman at Columbia i'll be sitting in my dorm on some bwog poking fun at 17 yr olds?


  20. ahhhhhhh  

    the freshest-freshmen: they're growing in numbers... their group's doubled since 9:30, like a virus ... i'm no premed, but i predict that this virus will grow about 60-fold in the next couple of months ... don't ask me how i know this

    seriously, 2012 welcome... and do us all a favor and work on that tolerance a bit 2nd semester, won't you?

  21. ttan

    Dear incoming first-years,

    For all your inquisitive eyes:

  22. Anonymous

    in fact I created the group months ago because I had already been accepted ED last december and deferred.

  23. aaaw

    Baby Columbians,
    Don't believe all the bullies!
    Of course, many are jaded and currently cranky because of finals, but columbia is an wonderful place and I wouldn't want to be anywhere else.

  24. Excelsior!

    I graduated three and a half years ago and I still miss it every day. Freshman year is when you get to make all your mistakes while you're figuring out this college thing... I had a ton of fun, but I don't think I was friends with any of the same people by the end of college. Sophomore year did suck, both because I was shifting social groups without the open social attitude of freshman year, and because calsses suddenly got more serious while I tried to figure out what to take and what to do. But by Junior year, I had friends, I had figured out who I was and where I fit on campus, and I had two years of nothing but the greatest times of my life. Columbia is the best place on earth, if you can learn not to take yourself or the school too seriously. Never take cliches at face value.

  25. Lycian Penguin  

    So, red flags for this year's applicant crop:

    -Community Activism
    -Marking down 36-Multiculturalism as an Extracurricular
    -Mentioning the surrounding community in the "Why Columbia" essay

  26. Lycian Penguin  

    Also, at least they kinda, sorta learned from this year's freshman crop with the related groups...

  27. don't worry, 2012  

    there are actually nice people at columbia. most of them just don't post on bwog.

  28. An Idea  

    could someone start a "c'12 is ready to get CAVA'd!" group?

  29. whoa  

    i can't believe it's been a year since this happened to me.

    time flies.

  30. CC '09  

    Don't worry pre-froshes, Columbia is a place where all your dreams will come true. A word of advice, read all Bwog posts with a grain of salt and don't take anything too seriously. You will probably get ragged on till NSOP starts but, it's all in the spirit of hazing...

  31. CC 07

    God, I am so freaking glad that facebook did not exist before I came to Columbia. And since I didn't go to days on campus, my first exposure to Columbia and it's students was, gasp, move in day. What an idea.

    • CC11  

      CC07, you're just bitter that your old, washed up ass didn't have access to the internets like we did. Try asking your grandkids, I'm sure they'll show you how to use facebook. In the meantime, go back to crying while you masturbate to fill the void in your pathetic, poorly-networked life.

  32. CC07  

    bear in mind, new columbians, that the majority of bwog comments are far more: conservative, racist, contrarian, skeptical, and obnoxious than the student body at large.

  33. Not that it is

    Not that it is a bad thing, but Class of 2012 is 39% homosexual

  34. Anonymous

    There's too many people from class of 2011 post on the '12 facebook group. It makes me sad.

  35. '12

    I agree. I'm coming in next year and it kind of breaks up the online bonding for us.
    And a lot of it is just annoying whining. I feel like there are other placed to let that out

    • rajib Mitra  

      its all sarcasm. its intended to let u know that columbia students have a sense of humor. i started the thread as a joke. i was actually lovin it when i saw everyone was getting in on the action haha
