I wouldn't discount the powers of naivete and optimism. The institution of law school seems to feed off of them.

Well said.

Columbia makes me feel unwanted.......I mean come on make some decisions

And no, telling us that you haven't decided yet is not a decision.

Question, and not to sound overly hopeful or optimistic or anything, but when did hold people who were accepted usually hear back?? I think I remember seeing one guy get in RIGHT BEFORE the deadline, but has that been the case for all previous years??

Still no decisions for held applicants? :shock:

I'm starting to think "everyone will hear back by April 25th" means "everyone will hear back April 25th"..

If that's true that kind of bull sh*t. I need more than a day to make a life changing decision thank you very much.

We just need to adjust our expectations. Being "held" is already somewhat synonymous with "wait listed."

If you want to remain on that list, you will obviously have to deposit at the other school you are considering. You're gonna be out $400-800 and then CLS should give you a few weeks to make a decision should they accept you. We are growing too bitter, too soon.

Also, CLS will definitely let a few of us know before the 25th. I would bet my life on it.

OK ... now I'm freaking out.

My phone can't handle all the email refreshing!


Edit: just measured that I can do 15 refreshes per minute. Need a better WiFi connection.

Does Columbia do multiple acceptance waves throughout the day, or do we think this is it for today?
