If I may ask, if that's the case, why not just reject instead of reserve? There has to be a distinction of some kind. Unless their process is just completely illogical, which I suppose wouldn't be terribly surprising.


Agreed...comments like that kinda peeve me...even if just 10 get in off the reserve list, its still a chance and if you want it, go for it! Though, comments like this probably also deter others from remaining on the reserve list, so i guess it's a wash...


i am sorry that reality peeves you. i do not know why they reserve a huge amount of ppl every year but the only "10" who get in are those who have auto admit numbers (already accepted to HYS) or URMs.

Damn, bad day for a lot of people. Good luck to all the reserved people!

No mail. No email. No nothing. I guess we're now either getting rejected or accepted?

Well, they haven't started giving out holds yet (I think).

Got a wait list email today, I'm in the "reserve group." much better than a ding but I doubt I'll get off the wait list.

DING DING DING!

Well, it's been a fun ride, guys. I found a letter sized envelope in my box from Columbia just now and immediately knew my cycle was over. It's dated 2/6. It actually hurts a bit less that my first rejection is CLS. Now I can go back to trolling Michigan and NYU :lol: .

Good luck to everyone who's still waiting! Hope you hear good news soon! (looking at you, JAMZ)

ETA: Oh, I'm in the deep south, if that helps.

I'm a longshot, numerically, but with uncommon softs. Applied late in cycle last year, and was waitlisted.

This year I applied early and still haven't heard anything.

Could there be any hope?

Why do I come to these threads again? It just makes it so that anytime I see an email I'm going to have a heart attack. Not as bad as waiting for LSAT scores but still. Its also bad since it looks like I will most likely get an emailed decision from Chicago soon one way or another. Blerg.

Sorry, juste.

Kind of glad to know the dings reached the deep south and I was spared though.

Sure. Submitted the week before Thanksgiving. I'm pretty sure I was an auto-reject for CLS, though.

So someone who went complete in late September with sub-par numbers (3.8/168) but good softs (Marine Corps combat vet) and noteworthy PS/LORs who has yet to be rejected, held, or reserved should feel.......?????

My feeling is that as long as rejections/waitlists are being sent out, not hearing anything isn't so bad. But as soon as the next wave of VCE's start landing in people's mailboxes the anxiety is going to ramp back up.
