I'm snail mailing a packet of updated stuff. Really hoping it works because I'm getting the WL everywhere.

I really don't think any of us are going to hear anything for quite a while.

This is so sad. Hopefully we'll be pleasantly surprised?

So... everyone still on hold?

One of our Admissions Officers will be with your application as soon as possible. Please continue to hold off on deciding where to attend until one of our Admissions Officers gets back to you.

Thank you for your patience.

I'm already in at Chicago, so I don't think I am staying on the Hold list for Columbia, but I am not withdrawing from CLS til I find out how NYU pans out

Where is that message from? An additional email you received? A question you sent them?

A mild parody of a traditional hold message:
Hold Message wrote:Your call is important to us. Due to unexpected call volume, the estimated wait for an operator is 15 minutes. One of our operators will be with you as soon as possible.


Sorry, I should have used a (parody) (/parody) tag.

Sorry, I'm dense. Reading all this stilted admissions language is dulling me to sarcasm.

3.7/174 applied 1/21 and they held me the next week. I feel like im just a high LSAT score they might play around with if it works for their numbers. I'm going to submit a LOCI anyway, because an admit might help me negotiate at NYU.

For those that updated transcripts, did you send official or unofficial transcripts.

Hey guys, I have it on good authority that CLS is using their "hold" option differently this year than in years past. Take that as you will but I am hoping/thinking it means a greater % of acceptances. Sorry but I can't tell you how as I am a paranoid schizophrenic convinced that admissions officers creep on TLS.
