LSN is pretty disheartening. The last ~20 decisions have all been WLs.

So far it looks like all the responses to march holds have been reserve, has anyone held in march heard either an acceptance or a ding yet?

WLed a while ago. I want to visit CLS and sit in on a couple of classes before I write my tearful plea/LOCI, but it'll be hard for me to get down to NYC before the middle of May. They said that they won't review the WL until the end of May, but I'm still a little worried about waiting that long to submit a LOCI. Thoughts?

If you can get down there go. If you can't get there, just write one now.

April 22nd is this Friday. It's gonna be a big week for those of us held!

Watch CLS keep us all waiting on the edge of our seats all week and then send out decisions Friday.

edit: Looked at LSN and noticed that while there were 2 acceptances reported in April last year, so far there haven't been any for the month of April this year. This is despite the fact that applications are down this year. I hope we can expect some acceptances in the coming week.

I was accepted April 12th! I think this is where I'm going to end up, although still waiting to hear back from McGill and Cornell

waitlisted with a 167/3.9

how much movement does columbia's WL usually have? and is there any point in even pushing to get off with the numbers that I have?

or, I could see them pulling a fast one on us and doing it on Thursday, just to be sneaky.

if they're waiting till Friday.... which is Good Friday.... I will pray that all of our responses are positive ones... For Jesus Christ Sake... my ulcer is getting bigger. On average I lose about 1lb from perspiring daily. Usually starts between 3-5pm (when checking my inbox)...

Sorry to hear that. Did you pursue the hold at all? LOCIs/additional LORs?

It's all good, I was about to withdraw. Just thought I'd post here for people waiting. I did actually send a LOCI way back when, though. No additional LORs or anything.

Sorry to hear that as well. Would people who got reserve e-mails mind sharing when they got the original hold notifications?

Got rejected via mail today. It was dated 4/15 and I'm in Maine (for those obsessing). Only surprise is how long it took them. Good luck to all those still waiting.
