I keep forgetting to actually withdraw. I'll try and remember to do that this evening.

But taking a WL away doesn't help much. :mrgreen:

I wasn't trying to drop any hints, if that's what it seemed! I just want CLS so much now that I'm grateful for every little thing that might improve my chances, however little...

one hundred percent agree with jrose. theres something that all of us have that they potentially need and during this week, post deposit deadline, is when they will sort out their class as thoroughly as possible.

does anyone know if there is any difference between the WL held people are put on and WL people who were never held get put on?

I don't know, but I doubt there is any difference. From what I've gathered, it seems like there are up to 3 WLs over the course of the summer (First, Second, and Third Reserve), and none of these are ranked.

For those of us that still haven't heard back, is it likely that we're heading to the reject pile?

have we already tried figuring out if this reserve stuff is going in alphabetical order at all? Anyone recently reserved mind sharing where their last name lies?

I don't think there have been any hold->dings so far...there have been dings but I believe they have been direct ones.

Just to add to the wealth of information already on this thread, I know of someone who was reserved today after going complete in December. This person was never held and was a dual degree applicant.

Waitlisted 1:20PM AZ time. Via e-mail. I guess I should use the correct term. I'm on "reserve". Makes me feel like I'm the 2nd string QB sitting on the bench.

I emailed Columbia yesterday asking for an update because I have a scholarship deadline this Friday. They just wrote back saying a decision letter was sent in the mail today. I wonder why they wouldn't just tell me...

:( Sorry to hear that.

It's super frustrating that schools won't release decisions to you over the phone (except for the schools that call).

Yeah, in March. I mean, this is obviously a WL or ding, but I'd like to know.

Although it's kind of wierd that they would insist on waiting for you to receive it in the mail after emailing so many people their decisions.

yeah only thing is they haven't yet (to my knowledge) emailed dings (only snailmail)...though I don't think any held people have been dinged...but now I'm getting worried that us leftover holds are awaiting dings :/
