I've already said this in another thread, but given CLS's tendency to send news toward the end of the day I'm predicting that around 4:30 EST the dings will start rolling. Anyone who submitted early and survives the ding wave can probably breathe a little easier since if we weren't held they clearly know what they're going to do with us. If not today, it's coming tomorrow.

& it's Pride and Prejudice, the one with Keira Knightley. SO GOOD.


Maybe my age is showing but IMO this one is soooo much better.

Maybe. But I don't have 8 hours of my life to waste in order to find out.

Yeah, i'm pretty sure CR is in and the mail is just taking a while. Hopefully the same deal for you too. Didn't it take CR like 3 weeks to get his NYU letter? He could still have a long wait for a VCE.

I just read through this morning's activity: so Columbia wasn't done yesterday? Is waitlisting even more people and now reserving them too? (And one guy got held yesterday and reserved TODAY?)

Still no flat-out rejections? Anything else I should be aware of?

Also, sorry to azn and r6 -- that is unreal!

Columbia's admissions department is definitely TTT in the mailing category.

Hey man, until they invent a better method of transmitting admissions decisions than postal mail, we really can't complain.

We should all petition USNWR to add a new category to their rankings - applicant satisfaction with notification method.

Columbia sent out a few holds today, but a lot of reserves. There was confusion--azn never got held, just reserved. Someone claimed that rejection letters went out on the 1st, but no one was able to back up that claim. I think someone somewhere along the line got a 1/31 VCE.

So I found out where law_monkey's tar is from, and it all makes sense now: the zoo at the Playboy mansion.

Law_Monkey is from LA, where the Playboy Mansion is located. Coincidence? I think not!

Okay, thanks! This is one hell of a cycle -- can't believe the stats of some of these people getting reserved! Fortunately r6 has amazing options and swept NYU + MVPB...

People on reserve: are you going to withdraw or stay on? Is it normal for Columbia to reserve this early in the cycle?

Does anyone know if CLS delivers rejections through mail? Cuz the whole VCE think okay, fine, but if rejections come via post-horse as well... gosh that would be *really* painful.

I'm really nervous about this too. That would be horrible.

Just a guess, but their pattern seems to be only acceptances are coming out through snail mail. It kind of doesn't make sense that they would email just the middle decisions.
