That's really all we can say at this stage.


Although it's possible that there could be a new wave of holds tomorrow once they fix their mass-hold-emailing-robotron 3000 which broke down after a paltry 3 hours today.

math101, you must change your pic immediately. I am in love with Zooey Deschanel. I can't focus

If this doesn't happen, it seems likely that Columbia will respond to the other pool of candidates fairly soon. There were a number of (numerically speaking) both exceptionally qualified and rather unqualified applicants in that pool. The 25/median/75 GPA/LSAT numbers were highly misleading; in the held pool, you could see why the candidate's stats might give the admissions committee reason for looking at the application more closely : the low LSAT candidates (<170) had high GPAs (or were URM), and vice versa. Or both happened to be strong. That really wasn't the case in the non-held pool.

Edit: In the future, it'd be useful to know what undergrad institution a candidate attended in the form -- since they're anonymous, I think people might be willing to disclose?

I don't think you can say the second point with any certainty. If so you would have expected the same outcome out of HLS.

+1. Point two is simply speculation...

Well, I am in love with Jeff Bridges, but for less aesthetic purposes. Apparently, she's my celebrity doppelganger, but I don't see it.

Regardless of how much we don't know, it's the type of speculation that will have me stalking my mailbox AND fearing my email these next few days. This is a very bipolar situation.

Just another reason I'll be disappointed if I don't get into Columbia: no Zooey Deschanel look-alike in my life :(

:oops:

I'd like to keep my anonymity at least slightly intact for now. Maybe after the cycle. Also, doubtful that I'll be at Columbia, arkansawyer; Held yesterday (is it still 2/02 in the US? I get mixed up now).

Pics or upgrade to PRO makes perfect sense.

So after I wasted my whole entire night, nothing new was known. Thanks a lot!
