I bet Columbia sends out a bunch of acceptances either late this week or early next week. I think they might be waiting until their application deadline passes (which is on Wednesday, 2/15) before they admit some of you who are waiting. I can't imagine why-- some people who haven't heard have really high numbers and have been admitted to top 3 schools--but I guess they're being strange about it. Maybe for some of you it's a soft YP? Or maybe they're just taking their sweet time while they figure out who they're going to give Butlers and Hamiltons to? IDK, it's weird.

I am SURE that some of you will be hearing positive news soon! Good luck!

Yeah, I thought about the deadline...maybe they're hoping more of the uber uber numbers apply?

Okay so far I've received acceptances on 11/11, 12/12 and 1/13. Columbia, you have the power to keep the pattern going... :D

Anyone have any idea when the Hold emails come out?

Looks like last year it was 2/2 and then again in mid March:

viewtopic.php?f=7&t=146728&hilit=columbia+hold+email

Twelve pages of crazy if you're looking to kill some time. At least it appears smaller than the Harvard hold group!

Yup

How do we know Columbia prefers LOCI by e-mail and not US mail? All schools are different. Penn says e-mail, however, Harvard prefers US mail.

To the extent that any of us are normal... But yes, you're in a pretty big crowd :wink:

They were saying that they were reserved via email, not talking about how they were sending stuff.

Do any Hamiltons/Butlers go out with later acceptance waves, or do those all go out with the first wave of acceptances in late January?

I would assume they generally go out in the first wave since those are when most of the auto-admits get accepted.

I'd have to imagine that they'd save Hamiltons/Butlers for really strong applicants who applied later in the cycle, so my guess is that there should be some given out in the next wave of admits.

Placed in reserve group yesterday. I wish they would let me know my status before the end of May. However, I am extremely willing to wait it out until the bitter end...

LSN is great for questions like this.

Here are the results of my super quick search of people from the past two cycles who got in after the first wave but still got a Butler or a Hamilton:

Looks like almost all of those late Butlers/Hamiltons went to URMs.

There are more non-URMs if you go further back.
