you think they're dragging on us because we are just that useless that it doesn't matter when we get put on reserve ...or should we dare to speculate?


No idea, but it's game day! One way or another we'll know by 5pm.

quite possible they torture us by either: 1) emailing us Monday, May SECOND; or, 2) they put our notice in the USPS today, the last working day of April.... and we wait for the snail mail to arrive after a week, if we're lucky ....

lurch in my stomach even thinking about the possibility that this madness might go on ....

well, they are only snail mailing rejections, so if we dont get an email today we will know our fate--i don't really see them breaking their word and waiting until monday.

Exactly my thought. If I don't hear today, I assume I'm rejected.

whoa.. didn't realize so many people were still waiting! annoying that they have so many people holding on until the last second. i wonder why. if only the admissions process was more transparent. bleh.

to be completely honest... i kind of feel like they are just going to continue sending decisions through next week. there seem to be SO many people left that haven't gotten their decisions... and it doesn't seem like Columbia's style to send out decisions in bulk.

maybe i'm totally wrong though.

In an interview here: http://blogs.law.yale.edu/blogs/admissi ... ether.aspx for Columbia it says: "Most candidates who complete their applications by December 31 will be notified by March, while every attempt is made to send out a decision to all applicants by the end of April, including to those that were completed after the deadline." perhaps they're just running a little behind?

or maybe my rejection letter is sitting in my mailbox at home :)

Yea, they use the "every attempt is made to send out a decision to all applicants by the end of April" line on their website, but I always took it just to mean that some people would be wait-listed and have to wait until after April. Plus I e-mailed them last week and they said that they would continue releasing decisions "through the end of April."

But you may be right... I wouldn't put anything past them at this point (No hard feelings, Columbia :lol: ) Plus I was pretty confidant I that I would get a reserve (and nothing more), but it has yet to arrive...

Sorry, just looked at some old posts, and some of you have been put in the Reserve group. I just got the Reserve email about 30 mins ago.

Hooray! I just got my letter in the mail! I've known for a while that I wouldn't get in, but it's good to have confirmation and close my cycle.

That's what I heard but I guess that's not the case, no emails or post so far for me! I assume they won't be sending decisions on a Saturday?

Anyone else not heard yet?

I got a handwritten note with my reserve letter as well and I know there is at least one other person, but I'm also curious to see if this is the done thing at Columbia.

I'm a forgotten Columbia candidate...is is worth it to send out an LOCI at this point? My gut feeling tell me no, because the mostly likely scenario is that a snail mail rejection has not yet found its way to my mailbox.

Thoughts? Any fellow forgottens?

still havn't heard anything... assuming a rejection is headed my way, though i'm kind of surprised i wasn't waitlisted. also a urm with strong numbers posted on lsn last night that they were still waiting, weird...

how long have you been forgotten?
