Honestly, I'd get cracking on those right now. You don't know how ED will turn out, but you do know that submitting as early as possible can only help you.

It'll be easy to do the NYU PS, but it's the LOR from the prof that I want to get cracking on. He's really slow, but I'd feel bad asking him to do it while he's grading finals if he ultimately doesn't have to.

I have a feeling I'm next. Whatever, I just wanted to know so I'm happy either way.

Edit: I don't mean I'm happy that you got deferred! Keep your chin up though..those are strong numbers and you will def. be getting into some good schools!

4:44, they ask you to update your transcripts after fall to show you are still interested and would like to be considered in April.

still nothing for me...

Do they also send out Waitlists for ED or just do they just defer people to RD?

I don't think WL is an option -- it's either rejct or deferral, right?

After wanting a Columbia email in my inbox for hte past few weeks, I am kind of hoping not to see one right now, LoL. Not that I'd be devastated over a rejection either.

Not sure. My guess is that a few more might come out in the next few weeks? They aren't completely automatic. My email was 4:53. Earlier email said 4:44.

EDIT: meant to say next few MINUTES. Glad I seem to be wrong though!

Hmm...yeah, that's true. I'm sure they'll probably continue with emails sometime early tomorrow morning. Sorry to hear you didn't get in! At least you know now rather later, so you can get to work on that NYU app!

Deferred via email too. ~3.7 / 172. Not surprised, and actually a little reliefed, but disappointed nonetheless.

Sorry to hear that, bro. Those are really strong stats for ED. You're at/above median in both categories for RD. I'm sure you will get in some great law schools before it's all said and done, if not CLS via RD.

After this unfortunate wave, who's left waiting for decisions? Me, Annie, Ludwig, Wiseguy? Anyone else?

Me too... if they've done acceptances an deferrals, the only thing left is straight rejections... this isn't good.
