Thanks Columbia, you really wanna leave me in limbo forever!


Wow, they must really like you guys if they won't let you off reserve. I just filled out the withdrawal form and received a "Don't let the door hit ya" type message :cry:

how many peeps are still waiting that are fairly certain they'll at least get one of the spots on the huge waitlist?

too true... i guess i'm trying to figure out if there is a borderline admit/WL contingency they are still holding on to at this point. not likely i guess, but i don't understand why they are waiting so long. also i'm trying to kill time until 5pm.

I would like to think we still have a shot, but there are some really high numbers that got hit with the waitlist recently.

Just got official "Reserve" e-mail after having been deferred from ED. Reserved until May then reviewed again. Is this different than the waitlist e-mails others have been getting?

I don't believe so... at least from everything you just said it sounds like we got the same email and I was a RD applicant held in March.

Just got Columbia reserve.
Ok, I know this is a stupid question... but does Columbia have both a waiting list and a reserve?

Not a stupid question, many have asked the same.

The reserve list is Columbia's WL. It's unranked.

More optimistic then. I mean they are bound to get some of us reserves, though probably not a high ratio.
Staying on until August 15. Be excited for my weekly LOCI poems Columbia!

I'm nearly certain that I am not CLS material. I applied sort of for the hellofit and because my grandfather insisted.

I have been complete for five and a half months and I have no idea what they could possibly be doing with my application. For those of you who actually think you can get in, I feel for you. Not knowing but still being pretty sure of a ding is not as bad as still believing Columbia is a viable option.

Hang in there, comrades!

Is it just me, or did no one get accepted off the WL last year? Skimmed LSN and could not find a "WL, accepted."

of those who posted to the LSN thread for last year ... 1 person did. A few days before classes started. Who was already an NYC resident.

Does that clear up any speculation about the wait - ahem - Reserve list? I hope so.

Held and still no answer. Probably WL/ding. Hit me.

A few months ago, I'd be upset. After adding some good options I've become pretty set on where I think I'm going. Honestly don't know how I'll react on the offchance I get into CLS, but I know when my inevitable reject/soft reject comes, I'll be happy for closure, very happy with where I'm going, and happier still not to spend the next three years dealing with the bureaucracy that caused this 375 pages of freaking out.

That said, congrats to those who are going.
