I lifted consistently for about 3 years before a career change & interstate move drew me away from the iron. I'm inching closer to it again, but feeling apprehensive about my lost strength. This post makes me feel like I can rediscover it.

I suggest composing a form email that's neutral enough to deploy in all situations, something like "Hi, I think you meant this email for someone else! I am an [occupation] in [metropolitan area]. Please remove my email from your contacts. I hope you're able to get in touch with the [Firstname Lastname] you meant to contact. Best wishes, X"

As far as the actual work involved, it is... a lot! (full disclosure, it's finals week and I also work full-time, which I do not advise if you can avoid it) But the postbac environment at Columbia isn't cutthroat or competitive at all, people are always offering each other their notes, getting together for study groups, etc.
Happy to talk more or email if you like-- you can reach me at mc4027 at Columbia dot edu!
