I'm wondering if I'm seriously looking at his cell/home number in my call log (and contemplating deleting it so I don't butt-dial the one person in the world that I really really need to like me right now).


Both the JR1s and JR2s come from a 617-496-xxxx number.

It's possible that there hasn't even been a round of admit calls since your JR1 (though I'm not sure about this as I haven't been keeping up). In that case, you really don't need to worry.

Yeah seriously. Who sends rejection letters via snail mail without any sort of update on the status checker? That is cruel, Columbia.

In this competitive environment, I guess the logical next step is some school hiring "lol squads", going to homes or schools of dinged applicants and yelling "THIS LOSER JUST GOT DINGED" in public.

Interesting that they took so long to reach this decision on you, eaa. I'd take that as a good sign that they are seriously considering you.

Nope when they say "held", they mean JR coming in person and hugging them.

Held. UR 12/3
173/3.77

...It really is oddly satisfying to have heard something and not immediately be dinged.

I know? I'm so beyond trying to understand this process that I'll just take the hold and go with it. Already sent in a LOCI and will now be sending a new LOR. Hope we can all be classmates :D

Also held--email was sent just after 3PM EST. Submitted around 11/17, UR 11/30, stats in profile. Pretty pleased with this, all things considered.

Oh I wish :D . Between this, the Columbia hold, and my ongoing UVA limbo, I'm going to be going on a LOCI-writing binge this weekend.

This, plus FAFSA, NeedAccess, and Northwestern's merit aid supplemental essays. Yay.
