Haha I'm clearly a flip-flopper. But they do say there are no atheists in a foxhole. Before I was saying I wanted an answer NOW so I could know my final list of options regardless of the answer. In the current confusion and doubt over whether or not it's good to not be held and a chance of ding emails starting up, I would prefer to be in that hold group if it meant giving CLS more time to decide it loves me. :oops:

Read 7 pgs then gave up and skipped from pg 233-->245 :mrgreen:
Also a non-hold here!


FILL OUT THE SPREADSHEET.

Now sorted by index, lovingly calculated by yours truly for those of you too lazy to put it in <3

& that would be me, knock. I name my spreadsheets classy things.


Yes ma'am! Done!

I would guess that the non-held people with early submission dates have VCEs either in the 1/28 wave or they have been delayed in the mail, and the later submission date people just have to wait for either a VCE or a hold/waitlist....

it is also possible that those that haven't heard back with early submission dates might be in for a ding (based off the index number), but that is not possible, because you all are getting VCEs :)



Did you mean complete date? as a forgotten who went complete 12/8 this gives me hope.

I have heard it's more LSAT-based (yay for non-holds?) and that their index weights LSAT more heavily. Not sure if true though!

oh yeah i think that's the case for every school right? Remember reading an article of the breakdowns of school rankings.

If we don't, it seems like there's gonna either be a lot of high scorers that will get "late" offers (assumes the hold list functions as a true hold list and that Columbia doesn't mind extending a bunch of offers after their peer schools have already done so), or there will be a lot of high scorers that will end up being wait-listed/rejected (assumes Columbia can fill up their class with folks not on TLS).


lol @ all the attempts (including this one) to make ourselves feel better.

Hey, I only reapplied to NYU for the purple and Columbia for the vomit. I was targeting MVPB with money this cycle, and I probably won't pick CCN over my targets. But now that I spent the money, I want the results!

Just as long as we don't have to eat bugs or anything like that. Message board drama is fine. :)

Maybe the HOLDS only went out to those on TLS because they find us obnoxious
