They only mention a transcript or resume, but I would send a LOCI if you are on hold and interested. I don't think it can hurt to acknowledge their letter and show that you are interested.

So time to sit around and wait until late March.... (anxiously with fingers crossed).

Anyone else hear lately?


im on "hold" too. but my hold letter says i will hear something by april 20th. did yours say that you will hear in march, or are you guessing thats when we will hear?

Oh no, it says April 20th now that I look at it... I got too pissed off and didn't read that far, but it looks like people on hold last year started to hear in late march

I got a Hamilton offer about a week ago.

And got accepted at Yale a few days ago.

This is going to be a ridiculously tough decision.

Oh, you poor thing. :P

I think I'd have to go to Yale in that situation.

:(

Sorry to hear that it wasn't acceptance outright.

Go forth and conquer with your impeccably written LOCI and shiny additional materials.

The hold letter talked about only Updated Transcript/Resume. So, is an additional LOR frowned upon??

Complete 10/17, so after I was left out of the first few rounds I was sure that I was destined for reserve or hold...

Obviously, Cameltaur, you've inspired a lot of hope in those who've had none... Sorry for all the pestering.

Congrats again!

If CLS is THE place for you, then go for it. Just make sure that your hand delivery is noted somewhere. It would be a shame if all that effort went unnoticed.
