Looking at the Columbia class of 2014 thread, I'm getting kind of depressed guys. There are actually quite a few people who were accepted this week, and that's just the people who decided to post about it.

Somebody snap me out of this! I need lolcats stat!

Nooo that belongs in the NYU thread! :x
Not to mention, I don't think there was ANYBODY accepted this week whose letter wasn't dated 11/30. And even then those "quite a few" add up to like 2 people.


When I'm stalking the crap out of this thread in January, expect to see lots of lolcats <3

Are you talking about the Class Forum? If so, I'm pretty sure all of those people have spoken up on this thread and got in on 11/30 (just took a little while for the email to hit for some).


Yeah...and its only like 5 people! All the other people posting on there haven't actually gotten in lol

Anyone expecting ED decisions in the next hour? I'm kind of shocked at how slow they are moving relative to last year.

Anyone know what percent of the CLS class is ED?


I dont' think they disclose that information, do they?

Today's the day guys, buckle your seatbelts! We'll all be laughing when we are Colubia students in 35 minutes! Or 24 hours and 35 minutes.

Gotta stay positive!

Hopefully no longer than that. Although, I just thought of something. I have a Vanderbilt interview scheduled for Sunday. It's going to be super awkward (but I guess I wouldn't mind!) if I told her I had to cancel because I was accepted ED somewhere else. :lol:

Question: Do they send out rejects/waitlists via email?

No, those were received via snail mail on Saturday, December 12th last year so people are expecting them to starting coming in this Saturday. You do NOT want to get mail from Columbia this weekend :(

Well hopefully you'll receive a nice, shiny acceptance email today or tomorrow and you can just go to the interview and bomb it for the lulz :P

Sorry everyone!!!!!! :oops:

I really just want to get ANY decision from ANY school. That would be nice. Just so I have some idea of how my cycle's going to go... I have a strange application so I have a feeling it's going to be hit or miss... probably mostly miss lol.

Searching for purple envelope vs. avoiding beige envelope. My head might explode this weekend.

Well if you get a vomit-colored envelope and all the colors around you make you hurl, at least it would blend right in :lol:

As someone who has gotten four "your application is complete" emails in the past two days, I have a new love for Columbia. Their email with the "we hope to welcome you next year" made me feel really warm and fuzzy.

Don't make fun of me, but I ran the LSN data we have from last year through a multivariate analysis (in JMP, for all you engineers out there), and here are a few findings that might help ease the anxiety:

The best indicator of what "wave" you hear back in ED is LSAT*GPA. No surprise there. But what will surprise you is that those of you who went complete later (like post-11/8), higher LSAT and GPA scores correlate with later decision dates. Essentially, lower GPA and LSAT combined with a later complete date means they will hear back earlier than those of you with a higher score in any of those.

To put it another way, those of you with good scores (170+, 3.6+) that went complete late (11/8 or later), your acceptance will come, just not right away. This is based on last year's data and it has iffy statistical significance (P=.12)

Anyway, just a rough analysis, and it's probably all wrong. The point is this: if either of your scores good, don't look at last year's LSN data that shows a bunch of rejections/waitlists for the latter wave of ED decisions and think you won't get an acceptance, since the vast majority of those negative decisions were people who didn't have solid numbers.

Sit tight everyone, we're gonna be classmates next year. And I'm gonna need to borrow your notes... :wink:
