CONGRATS!!!!! Good to know Chicago's getting mail again. Now I'm really dreading my mailbox (and might leave work early to rush home to check it.)

Recap of Columbia 2011! February 4, 2011:

1) Some more VCE postmarked 1/31, including Chicago/midwest (despite snow).
2) Some more holds as well via email, last year's hold situation looks grim.
3) Thread basically came to a screeching halt and everyone stopped posting stuff.
4) ahduth looks like Clive Owen apparently, hence the deserved VCE.

To give a ray of hope to us middling-numbers folks, one girl was pulled out of hold and accepted on April 12 with a 3.76/171. I choose to focus on this exception rather than the rule (which is waiting till the end of April to join Reserve).


Rargh, hope rises again despite itself.

Nice, congrats! I have same LSAT, marginally lower GPA, and submitted/complete same time as you, so it's good to hear. Although anything postmarked 1/31 should have been here a while ago, since I'm not in a place where traffic is literally frozen...

Then I'm sure you must be super cute. Perhaps a drink once we're both accepted into Stanford? And since you look like a cat, I'm sure you won't be too disappointed when I don't turn out to be a jolie doppelganger. lol

as obnoxious as the comment might be... there's a reason they put up the new stickied post at the top of the board today... and a reason why the Columbia thread is ridiculously longer than any other thread (including Columbia's thread last year).

btw - i think it was overlooked (case in point) that someone claimed a VCE with a postmark of 2/2. some rejection letters were claimed with a postmark of 2/1. and - the latest (i think) completion date reported so far has been 1/18.

Ugh, Ron Artest hit that stupid buzzer beater against the Suns in Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals--I thought for sure that game was going into OT.

Good thing the Suns are good THIS year--oh wait...

Applied in mid December, hold email Feb 2nd. My stats really aren't up to par so I'm amazed I wasn't flat out rejected. I have an interesting story though (recovering addict) so I'm sure that is a big part as other schools have made a point to let me know that was a deciding factor for them. I'll send in my fall transcript this week and see what happens :)

The point was that the GULC packet and the first VCE wave came at the same time. It was being used as measuring when one could expect the VCE.

So it actually isn't off topic.

oh no i agree - your post was actually on topic. but the spirit of masterthearts' comment is appreciated by a lot of people (as obnoxious and technically wrong as it was). when (as i just illustrated) attempted summaries of the day's thread activity overlook information relevant to non-mass-posters b/c the thread has become a chatroom, the helpfulness of the thread decreases. not trying to be combative - (so bdub, let's try to not have a flame war that wastes a bunch of people's time, okay? ). i'm sure a lot of people are actually interested in the fact that someone claimed a 2/2 postmark for VCE, and that there's been no evidence that NOT receiving a hold is an indication of anything for people with completion dates 1/19 and after.

again, not trying to be combative - just suggesting, in the most minimal way possible, a little discipline w/r/t getting information out to people.
