Does anyone know if there is a difference between being waitlisted and "reserved" or are these terms synonymous? Any insight would be appreciated! Thanks.

No prob. Best of luck getting off the waitlist (assuming you want to/are going to stick it out).

Worst case scenario... see you at NYU in the fall?

Something like that. We'll see what they do with me.

I'm still here too. Fortunately (maybe) I can only wait through the end of next week, which I already told them. So the end is near. Hallelujah!

So if we haven't heard anything yet from Columbia since going complete in January (No reserve, waitlist nor anything email), what does this mean? Is the best I can hope for a waitlist at this point?

It doesn't mean anything. At this point you can still get any type of decision, and there are other people who have been waiting even longer so there's no need to worry.

I can just see you typing this aggressively as your face gradually contorts more and more at the monitor

Hahaha it would be aggression toward CLS rather than the people asking this. I'm just so FRUSTRATED with this! I put my time into this application and I expect an answer dammit!

OMFG!!!!! Columbia just now emailed me for a fall grades request. I never sent them in because my gpa only went up .01 so it's essentially the same. They've had my app since freaking Oct. Why are they just now asking??? FML!!!!!!!!!!

Maybe this is a good thing! I'm still completely rooting for you.
