10/30 submit here, same boat. Presumably we are on the fringe of the admit pile, so hang in there. Looking at LSN, there was another large wave of VCE's this week last year. Here's to hoping good news is on the way.

For now I think you should take it as a good thing. Columbia is known for known for not following submission. The fact you haven't heard back means they are seriously considering you

I think the process is more of a "rolling application review" than a "rolling admissions." This means that they look at applications in order of submission, but don't necessarily make final decision in order. If you haven't gotten a decision yet, it probably means that you're a more attractive candidate than those who've already been rejected/reserved, and less attractive than those who've been accepted. That's all.

This process is virtually the same at all top law schools. Columbia also officially sends "hold" emails to candidates who fall in this middle ground, so you may see that coming soon. People who have said that they've been "held" thus far actually mean that they've been put on the waitlist (called "reserve" at Columbia). HTH.

Getting tired of this being the case day in and day out. (But please, Columbia, when you DO decide to send me something, use the mailbox and not the computer. Thanks.)

Whoops :oops:. Yeah, I was thinking "no reserve no reserve," but you're right, a small envelope would be even worse!

I feel like, of all the people with no news, I'm in pretty good company. A lot of really strong applicants have nothing

Been watching this thread for a while and finally decided to join in. I'm in the 172/3.8 crowd, still waiting to hear, but at least I'm in the club...
