I grew up in a tropical country in Asia and have been in Cali the 5 1/2 years or so I've been in the States, so I'm not really looking forward to the change in weather.

I wish my GPA could've counted...but that's neither here nor there. Still glad to have gotten the acceptances I have so far.

Good luck to the rest of you guys still waiting!


Hey if you want it really bad and you kill 1st year at CLS, perhaps you could transfer over after 1L?


I'm not sure it's worth the benefit though, considering what I would have to give up if I transfer. Anyway, I'd be happy with graduating from Columbia. It's just the weather I'm concerned about, but it'll work out.

=( Trying to fill less than 200 spots is ridiculous. Sorry for the news, lucylove. I hope you'll land somewhere great regardless.

Oh for sure.... It's just hard because now I know for sure I'll be leaving Stanford for good in June and I'm not ready! (Stanford UG)

Hey do you guys think I should send in a LOCI? I mean I sent in an informal 2 paragraph update on Why I would like to attend SLS, because I hadn't quite addressed it in the PS. Would the LOCI be alright? I'm sorry all these DLS's are making me desperate

Well perhaps the change might actually be good for you???? Keep up your spirits, you may find somewhere even better suited for you?

Sorry to all the DLS people :(

I've been passed over, so I'm assuming I'm headed to waitlist city?

Not necessarily. I have a feeling there are still plenty of acceptance offers to go out before waitlists.

You guys are awesome. I applied to Stanford as one of my 'no chance in hell' reaches after sending out my other apps, so I'm just slowly watching the wave of DLS decisions creeping towards my date. Keep the dream alive! :D

Haha thanks, but my best soft is my upward grade trend...so... yeah. I guess we'll see. Staying in California would be really nice (oh so weak to weather SoCal'er here). Too many intimidating 3.9+'s combined with a dearth of sub 3.9 acceptances on LSN has made me put eggs in other baskets.

Right now, they're pretty much accepting "auto-admits" - I'd bet that they'll still have close to half of the class to fill by the time they're done with their first wave of dings. So in the second wave of acceptance, you'll be compared to people with sub-3.9 GPA's. Don't worry.
