Thanks, I think I was just temporarily discouraged by the silence coming from CLS's end. No more! :( :? :| :) :D

Edit: I did kill a man once...is that cataclysmic?

Only if you answered "yes" to question 17 (or whatever it was on every app).

old email right?

edit: i honestly don't see hold as bad thing.... i mean the waiting part sucks mad. but all in all its second to an acceptance. when the dinghammers start dropping left and right, all the holds will be smiling in their seats.

LSN needs a category for "held".. an orange circle, if you will.

I agree, and I think whoever reported that holds would find out in April was being given a conservative answer by a staffer. I think there will be a lot of movement once the pool is complete after 2/15.

Yes, sorry, the email came at 2:50. I've been in interviews and doing taxes all day and just got back to TLS.

I think I'm mostly just pessimistic because I haven't been held or waitlisted, but I don't think I'd be accepted over other people around here so if something is coming soon it's probably the other category. On the other hand, I have to keep reminding myself that no one here (including myself) really knows anything about this (no offense) and that admissions is somewhat inherently unpredictable for mid-rangers like myself...so anything could happen.

As for the avatar, it's the cat's eye nebula...I just really like how it looks.

Edit: admissions is somewhat inherently unpredictable for ANY candidate, I guess, as long as there's people sitting somewhere making the decisions.


Orion Nebula > Cat's Eye Nebula, and Eta Carinae (Hourglass Neubal) > them both

So it's kind of starting to look like most of the early applicants probably would have heard by now if they're in, like we were all originally guessing. There might be a few stragglers in the 1/31 group, but the huge wave is probably over. If they want you but aren't sure for whatever reason, you get held. If you've been WLed you should know by now. If it's still silent...cross your fingers you were in that later batch because otherwise the outlook is grim. Hooray speculation!

When did most of you guys who get held go complete? I wasn't complete until December, but applied at some point in November (don't remember when). Just trying to figure things out.

They probably will for people who applied later. But they probably know what they're doing with the earlier apps and if not they got held. This is personal wishful thinking though too. Honestly at this point I kind of just want to admit defeat. That way I'll know my ding is coming and if I get something else it'll be a little happy gift. :D :D

If Columbia makes me wait until April for a decision when I submitted early Cotober, I'm just going to hate them :evil:
I know it's just whinny, but still... you'd think schools would genuinely consider this- It definitely influences my gut feelings about schools.

OMG, eski, no!!!!

I'm sorry!

And dulc, you should keep the new tar, although I def agree with whoever was saying earlier that the OG Colin Firth version is the best adaptation of P&P to ever happen ever, and that includes all future versions. :P

I wonder what the result of the hold is in terms of withdrawing applications. X amount of holds leading to x amount of W's thus far.

Was looking through last year's hold thread... *sadface*

If I hear nothing more from Columbia until April... Oh my wow, I have no idea what I'll do... This is just a really weird point in my cycle, haven't heard from most schools I applied to, meh :/ I thought January/February would be hopping.

Do we think at this point everyone who hasn't heard yet has either been accepted or rejected?

I am just so confused at this point. I kind of want to be held so I won't feel so alone :cry:
