Possible to add control group (Aka no news at all)?


No news about my mail for the past week, but I'm sitting at no news...


Same with meeeee. I keep refreshing my email just in case now too. And every time there's nothing I don't know whether to be scared or relieved.

can someone answer my questions about how they send rejections. I could look a few pages back, but make life easy on me.


Historically it's been snail mail, but now it looks like all non-admits will get an email.

Any chance we could add an index column to the spreadsheet, or would that be ridiculously complicated?

It's easy if someone knows the formula. I remember it was in this thread somewhere. Anyone know?

Ahaha me too! My dad said I got a package and I got super excited.

Why do they keep sending those? Am I the only one who doesn't even LOOK at the faculty books?

it's confusing that people are posting waitlists on lsn if it's the hold email...

I flip through everyone and see how many of them are from Yale and Harvard and realize how much of a failure I am going to be.

Awesome, then I'll continue to put them in a pile, unread. CLS is already doing a sufficient job of making me feel like a failure.

Each school publishes their own index. If you look at the index column on LSP you'll see they're all different, with some being low as 3.x and others higher than 200. the 4.x one is Columbia's official index.

Also I don't know if someone posted the actual index formula, but I didn't see it so if y'all are curious:


Columbia University

0.045 (multiply by LSAT)
0.559 (multiply by GPA)

-5.512 (subtract)

= your index

Happily (or sadly?) no. I will be seeking many hugs as soon as I get home so I can feel like I belong.

:( I'm literally shocked by this. Good luck though! If anyone can get off the hold you will.

And terrified for myself now.
