Nothing here - in Queens, NY, just out of Manhattan. Was kind of hoping for word today. Yikes.

By what date does the letter ask for a response?

So much for them skipping the third reserve. Bah I am so not looking forward to waiting another month (assuming I am given the oppurtunity).

Also, I should note that it says that they anticipate openings in August.

ya, I hear you... it's a bit insane...I more want to be in NYC but didn't want to apply to Fordham

I'm a bit coy to say which specific school I'd be at, let's just say, T10... I'd definitely be happy there, but I'm looking for a change in environment

Just got my 3rd reserve letter as well. It's dated July 6th, and I'm in (North) Jersey. I've decided I'm going to remain on the list and just to wait it out, but I also understand how ridiculous the wait and the process must must be for people who have to decide to pick up and move half way across the country at the drop of a hat. CLS has got some pretty torturous methods. However, good luck to everyone! :D

Anything interesting in the 3rd reserve letter? Any indication as to whether they intend to accept anyone off of the waitlist (and/or whether or not they have already)? Any indication as to when waitlist candidates might hear next (aside from the promise of a final decision by August 20)?

Good luck!

Has anyone placed on third reserve entered their info on the "third reserve page" successfully?

I've not heard back yet regarding my status, but the third reserve site isn't working for me yet so I'm preparing for the worst.

...but I wouldn't get too upset if it doesn't work, the site might not be updated. Since no one placed in third reserve has mentioned it yet it could be out of date. One can hope, anyway...

Third reserve in NYC! Really surprised after my f-ing score dropped in June. :evil: Letter was dated 7/7 and the website went through ok.

How many of us do you think are left on this thing?

Does anyone know if there is a 4th Reserve?..lol

Dear applicant,

Congratulations on making it to the 82,348th Reserve. Unfortunately, we are unable to make a decision on your application at this time, but we anticipate that seats will open up in the class by early August, 2468.

Sincerely,
Patience
