I'm also rather curious. I wonder what it means if this is a new development.


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


That def does not explain why I didn't get a hold, then, because I'm definitely one of the most obnoxious people in this thread XD

Especially if they really are playing that drinking game.

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


I'd rather eat bugs. But I am Chinese so...

new rule for the drinking game: double shot every time the world "hold" is mentioned

[25th/median/75th]

HOLDS:

LSAT: 169/171/173

GPA: 3.68/3.8/3.9


NON-HOLDS:

LSAT: 170/172/173

GPA: 3.6/3.76/3.88


This is super-misleading: almost all the (non-URM) 168-170 candidates that were held have GPAs at or above the 75th; by contrast, there were a number of numerically weak candidates who were not held.

I think that decisions have been made on the non-held people that CLS' adcom is comfortable with, and some will be getting admitted and some WL/rejected in the near future.

The holds have a long way to go.

hey guys so I just caught up on the last few pages and it seems that a lot of the holds had really high stats, I think its likely that they want to see if you guys are still interested in CLS over HYS without one of the named scholarships...just an opinion but it would make sense

good luck all!!!

then again... the thermos knows to keep cocoa hot and lemonade cold. how does IT know?

I just realized that the most confusing part about this whole thing is that we've gone all evening with a significant lack of lolcats.

Ugh at this rate, we need to have an NYC meetup at some point and play this goddamn drinking game ourselves.

+1

i was just imagining how I would react if i finally get a vce and....i think i'll cry. literally.
then i'll probably become somewhat lazy at my workplace
and will indulge myself with gifts (much needed new laptop + clothing + FOOD etc)
but feel justified with all of my actions because of the fact that I got a VCE!!!

Just got the hold e-mail...

Hate to ask this, but i lost track of this thread when it exploded around page 190 lol. Could someone briefly tell me what hold entails in terms of chances / when we can expect a final decision?

& everyone, wear red tomorrow for Chinese NY! It'll bring you luckkkk (& hopefully VCEs? or at least a day of adcoms not fucking with us?)

& hellojd, what do you mean by "just"? :x & no one knows about what it means since we don't think that they did it in such huge #s last year. So we are all very, very confused.

non-hold here who went complete 11/11. i have mixed feelings about this since it may very well mean that a ding will be sent out soon... index a hair over 4.2

sigh.

They haven't been able to make a final decision, you should get one by the end of April, and nobody really knows the chances part. The numbers are all over the place.

HTH

ETA: you JUST got a hold email? as in just now? they're STILL sending them?

Held as well. I don't think I fully understand the implications, but I've nonetheless fallen into a state of deep depression :(
