I can't copy and paste from the PDF for whatever reason, but holds are still under active consideration and will receive a decision by April 22.

I can't copy and paste from the PDF for whatever reason, but holds are still under active consideration and will receive a decision by April 22.


The hold email:

Columbia Law School Admissions wrote:Dear Mr. TheLastStraw05,

We wish to inform you that, after careful consideration, your application has been placed in our "Hold" category, which means that your application is still under active consideration by the Admissions Committee.

To provide a context for your present status, we expect over 8,000 candidates will seek admission to our entering class, numbering approximately 380 students, during this admissions season. This year's applicant pool, in keeping with recent years, promises to be among the largest and most highly qualified in our history. Therefore, your current standing represents a testament to your unique strengths and potential fit with Columbia Law School.

While we cannot speculate as to the final outcome of your candidacy, we wish to inform you that yours is one of a select group of applications placed on Hold and that you will be given every possible consideration as the season continues. Consistent with our admissions protocol, some applicants may ultimately be offered admission, some will be placed on Reserve, and others will be informed that their application for admission has been denied.

In the interim, you may also submit an updated academic transcript, if applicable, through March 31, 2011, to supplement your application while it is under review by our Committee. However, if during this time you decide that you no longer wish to be considered for admission to Columbia Law School, kindly notify us by contacting our Assistant Director of Admissions, Danielle Flores, at XXXXXX. Please be advised that you will receive a decision from the Committee no later than April 22, 2011.

Thank you again for your patience. We look forward to being in touch with you as soon as the Committee has rendered a decision.

Warmly,

E. Nkonye Iwerebon
Dean of Admissions

Cruelest of all cruelties, my mail did not come today.

Is that even possible?

The mailman stole my VCE and skipped my house?

Also I am terrified of being held (In more ways than one)

So Columbia is my REACH school (I'm definitely below the medians, maybe even the 25%), but I had to try, right? I went complete on 11/30 and haven't heard anything. I'm both terrified and unfortunately optimistic as these waves of holds and WLs go by and I hear nothing. They really should just ding me and get it over with. Could being Hispanic really give me this much of a boost? :shock:
