also held. fuq'n suit and tie wearin' muthafukkaz.



perhaps they saw my pastel single-track bicycle and my slip-ons made from 100% post-consumer materials (tire-tread soles) and quickly realized that i'd probably choose Washington Square over them anyway.



no but in all seriousness you guys i'm sure that they are waiting to see how many of their initial RD admits withdraw and choose H/Y/S so they can keep their yield & numbers high.

It only seems strange if you assume it's pretty much all about numbers. If you even allow that it really is (like a lot of admissions departments say) 1/3 LSAT, 1/3 GPA, 1/3 essays, softs, etc., then it's not so strange.


I see you are new to TLS.

I don't know if it's appropriate... it says transcripts, but doesn't leave it open to something like "other things for the committee to consider" or anything... ugh. I probably will.

They are putting EVERYONE on ice until they receive more apps by 2/15. Because of a huge drop in applications.

That's what I am wildly speculating.


This, along with our pool's slightly less impressive numbers relative to the past cycles. They're beginning to freak out about medians falling.


If this is true, why admit 4.2s? (No offense to y'all, mega congrats)

it depends on the date of completion - if i could figure out the latest date that someone was completed, and was also held, this would help, but i know its hard to figure that out.


I was complete 10/12. No email.

It seems like a majority of us were held. Maybe the others should start a "I wasn't held at Columbia" thread.

So has anyone gotten one recently? Are they still heading out? What does this mean for those without one?

Maybe they reviewed applications and made decisions BEFORE they realized how crappy this pool (ahem, present company excluded) is.

What, are they going to turn around a re-review the 3000 applications they already went through?

This looks like a panic move.

Confused here too... Held with a 4.3 (average) or 4.5 (taking just the highest--which I was under the impression they did for a 7 point increase).

(for spreadsheet purposes--176, 3.66, submitted 10/10, complete 10/19)
