I got into Berkeley and was wondering if I should mention this in my LOCI? Thoughts? i also got a 130k scholly at Wash U (not sure whether I should mention this either).


If Columbia held you, then you belong. No one put a gun to their head about putting you on hold. We're close to numbers twins, although I'm not URM, and also in at Berkeley. Good luck to both of us. Wonder if holds will start hearing before April 30th this year.

Seems from the Columbia 2010 thread they started accepting some holds...

I heard earlier this week that I've been taken off hold and accepted. I sent a snail mail LOCI, an extra letter of recommendation, an email update, and had a Columbia connection at my university call in specifically about me. Seems to have paid off :)

Congrats, did you get the VCE in the mail, or did you hear some other way?

sounds like you aren't part of a batch then, or indicative of the fate of other holds.

I did and posted in the columbia 2010 thread. I was admitted. Was held in March and told that I would hear back by April 21st, but they were early, and I'm very happy.

That's awesome -- congrats!

Mine said by April 21, too. No word yet. Hopefully I'm right behind you...

Did you send in any LOCIs or anything?

Radio silence from Columbia.

I'm thinking things are looking bleak.

Ok, I feel kind of silly asking this question, but did Columbia officially notify you all of being on hold? I haven't heard anything from Columbia - no acceptance, no rejection, no wait list. They just say that my app is UR.

I have a feeling that we still might not hear until the very end of the month.

no movement for 3 days on lawschoolnumbers.
I wonder if they are going to wait until the evening of the 21st and send out emails in mass.

That's still acceptable, since I would still be able save some deposit money (for other schools) at least.

Otherwise,

well, there is not much I can do.

+1. My guess is, the rise in applications led to a backlog. Patience is the name of the game.

Are ED deferrals different than holds? I ask because both are putting "D" on LSN....

Many people view ED deferrals as a soft rejection, and holds as a future waitlist (also a soft rejection) with a slight chance of acceptance.
