But, anyway, I'm going to go ahead and guess that this "forgotten" group is a waitlist group in the making considering the strength of the #s around me.



It looks that way I guess. Maybe an exception or two in there.

We're trying to figure that out. CLS is historically quite numbers-based, but holds today went up and down the pool. Something deeper must be afoot. There are countless other threads to debate the merits of softs vs. numbers.



Credited.


hmmm... i believe the other guy and I were giving an explanation for the holds. your explanation is: i don't know - we're trying to figure that out. it must be a vast conspiracy... something deep and mysterious. no?

I don't think we can knock this "forgotten" group quite yet. There are certainly strong numbers bundled in and the quality of non-numerical factors is unknown.

Actually, my explanation was that the blizzard caused snow-madness in the admissions office.

Looks like I'm late to the party but held as well, 172/3.72. Wasn't expecting more than a waitlist and this doesnt really change that. GL to the rest of you.

So I looked at your profile and saw "No. 169, 3.75. Ivy. PhD, with really good extracurriculars"

So I'm wondering what great softs you have since what TLSers think are good softs aren't really. PM it if you want?

When LSAC sends out LSAT scores, it sometimes takes hours for the e-mail to arrive in someone's inbox (presumably because of the large number of e-mail recipients). Does anybody think that is happening here?

As in - are we safe for today as of 7:15 EST?

Uh - i didn't say my extracurriculars were good enough to get into Columbia - or that my scores were good enough to get into Columbia either, lol. I fully expect either a ding, or a hold at some point in the near future. Stay on task! (And fwiw - i'm pretty sure my LSAT and grades put me in the lower 25% of NYU - so it must have been softs).

Yeah usually I would have no problem believing that maybe Columbia is magically holistic but I just dont see it.. seems like one of these 10ish other schools and scholarship committees wouldve figured it out by now. I dont have AMAZING softs but they are definitely solid at the very least.

That's cool, and congrats on NYU! Just wondered what good softs are, it seems to have changed..

arism, don't you think you are taking this a bit too far? i think we all get that being held is very disappointing but melamine was just trying to see the held situation from a different point of view. even melamine's interpretation of what good softs are, what s/he was saying was that in a sea of applicants with high numbers and softs like a MA, a job, etc. these softs are commonplace and doesn't set applicants apart from one another.

Is it wrong that seeing some rejections would make me feel better about being held?

She didn't exactly cuss him out or anything, she just asked a simple, reasonable question.

I think it's a valid question, although an unnecessary one. And yes, I understand the argument. I just wanted to know what DOES set an applicant apart.

Anyway, I'll stop :)
