If I make it onto the waitlist and crack 170 on the June LSAT, will it help me off the waitlist?


Chances of getting off the wait list are slim but you're in a good position as a urm with those numbers. Hang in there


Thanks, I hope so! I feel so inadequate on this thread with a 165! 173/172 median for Columbia=WOW

Good News: I didn't get any mail today so I'm not rejected. Bad News: I didn't get any mail today so I'm not accepted.

I hate this waiting stuff.

178/3.8, went complete in early December and still waiting. At the risk of sounding entitled (and only since these things are so numbers-driven), I'm really trying to figure out what went wrong. :?

Nothing for me yet, either. What gives? I'm between the 25% and median in both categories. Maybe those of us who didn't get the hold email means we're headed for Rejection City, USA?

I would be Okay with that, because I dread the thought of living in Manhattan, but I would just like to know.

Let's get some vomit in that mailbox! C'mon, yeah!

Another day, another disappointment. I guess that 2/16 acceptance was indeed a fluke.

They are trying to figure out which of their name scholarships they want to give you.

Joining the waiting crew-looking at these impressive numbers is just increasing my rejection paranoia :shock:

DON'T EVEN PLAY GAMES LIKE THAT.

Are those stats in your profile real? And when did you apply if you don't mind me asking?

(I think if anyone is making it off the hold list, it's you pal).

Interesting. Sorry to hear it pal. Good luck though.

And on that note: can all the holds give us dates please? I want to see if there is any rhyme and reason to the holds.

I'm really pulling for you WhiteGuy, Columbia ought to let you in based on your commitment to analyzing the admissions process alone.

Awww<3. Thanks :cry: I hope everyone in this thread has a VCE in their mailbox by the end of the week.

But honestly, over-analyzing the admissions process is nothing more than a hobby. I think 98% of it is speculation (especially my own). It just helps calm the nerves and gives me something to think about.

I am now scared, though international gpa's aren't necessarily considered the same

Welp, I added myself to the google doc of people waiting on decisions, though my app didn't go complete until a little more than a week ago so I'm not getting antsy or anything. Plus Columbia is my super reach school so I'm not holding my breath or anything >.>

Do we still think they're giving out named scholarships? Or do all of the Hamiltons/Butlers go out in the first wave or two?

I was bored so I made a very possibly bullshit quick analysis. Review of LSN showed 216 acceptances last cycle. Lets just assume 10% less applicants this year (totally made up for analysis purposes). We should then expect roughly 194 acceptances this year on LSN. So far there are 122 acceptances. 122/194 = 63% of the class has been filled. If there is 15% drop in applicants, we expect 184 acceptances. 122/184 = 66% of the class has been filled.

POSSIBLY VERY WRONG CONCLUSION: 1/3 of all acceptances still to come
