Did anyone/everyone have a handwritten note in their letter?

I only got an email too, but the first page of the attachment had a handwritten note in blue ink (it must have been scanned). Is this normal?

Is it possible that this was because I was initially an Early Decision applicant? Any other deferred/reserved ED applicants get this?

Thanks!

When do you think they will send out their first acceptances off the wait list?

Really? I was always under the impression that almost no one, like literally, gets in off of the waitlist.

To join the above conversation, I was deferred from ED, and got a handwritten note in my scanned PDF letter:

"We will continue to take a close look at your candidacy. Please keep us updated on your plans as the summer progresses."

Was this the version y'all got?

By the way, did any ED deferrals get rejected?

Yep. That's the version I got. I wasn't ED though and applied very, very late.

ED deferral, no handwritten note, insanely jealous. Sigh.

This is my second year in the reserve group...i made to the third reserve group last year. I'd like to be hopeful, but there was absolutely no movement in the reserve group last year. It felt like one painfully long rejection. From what I hear CLS puts way too many people in the reserve group.

I dont mean to be pessimistic but for those of you out there who are contemplating rejecting other offers in hopes of getting in off the reserve group, I'd advise against it.

unknown, but it definitely feels like a lot.

a few of us were also on the reserve last year and from what i understand there was little to zero movement. that said, this year seems different in many ways. harvard, nyu and chicago have all already had some movement on their waitlists so who knows what that means in terms of columbia. hopefully we'll start to hear something soon...

Well... I'm not sure HLS, NYU, and Chicago having movement on their WL is any indication about CLS, to be honest. They told me they'd get back to us in June about First Reserve. Plus, historically, HLS has used their WL a good deal (starting early May), but the same cannot be said about CLS.

I'm assuming there's been no movement on this front?

Because of the "reserve system," I think they don't notify anyone about anything until the first week of June. At that time, everyone gets some sort of response -- accept, reject, or moved onto second reserve.
