I thought what I said was extremely clever and helped lighten the mood. I guess it's too soon for this thread. It's ok bro, I'm not funny in real life either.

Pretty sure I'd beat you hands down in the not-funny race (though that's probably clear already). It's all good.

I'm probably just a bit on edge because of all the "worst President ever--look, now he's buying his bodyguards hookers (oh yeah and he's a secret Muslim!!!!!)" crap my mother keeps emailing me. My bad.

I think this was because Columbia overenrolled in both 2010 and 2011. They were aiming for a class of 380 and got a class of more than 400 the last 2 years. I do think this year they have been a lot more careful, and aggregated with the decline in applicants, Columbia will be more likely to utilize the reserve. Therefore, if any of you have gotten reserved, I would recommend staying on. Just be realistic about your chances, but don't give up hoping.

Heard from Columbia today after being "held." I was placed on "Reserve." I'll stay on the list, but I doubt it will happen for me.

Thanks KP...a little optimism is always nice. Especially after the Mariners just blew one against the Tribe.

Can someone post the entire email just for my curiosity's sake? I want to prepare myself emotionally. :D

I was starting to think about this too. I know they really overenrolled the past two cycles. I am hoping too that this cycle they made a more conscious effort to keep to the 380 and in the process, will need to dip into the reserves. We shall see.

Is reserve better/worse than WL?

worse, but there is some reason to think that this year may be slightly better than normal

I thought it was their version on WL. It's been a bad place in the past couple years due to Columbia over-enrolling regular admits. If they adjusted this year, they might draw from the reserve.

So the reserves went out early today. A sign that there's no more acceptances coming?

So does anyone actually get flat out dinged by Columbia? Held ED, just now got the reserve email. Just reject me, Columbia, I can take it, I promise.

So far we haven't had any acceptances since Monday (with a few exceptions). Looks like the rest of us are headed to the reserve list too =(.

Reserved a few hours ago. Held ED, never received anything since. Probably won't stick around.

Do the recent Reserves mind sharing their stats? I'm curious to see what this new batch of decisions looks like. If EDers are getting reserved, what does that say about the rest of us? :shock:
