Excuse me if this question has already been answered somewhere. But should people on hold/reserve also submit fin aid forms? I know thats the case for some schools. Just wondering if the same thing applies to CLS as well. Thanks.

Congrats!! Maybe this lends some credence to the theory that they were holding off on some candidates to see if they could offer them Hams/Butlers based on the first round of offers?

Major congrats!

And of course since we just got over a hold/reserve wave, I must now wonder if this is part of the typical trickle we've been seeing or if this is like the initial acceptance wave where the internationals got e-mails the day before the first NCEs appeared.

But I'm going to manage my expectations and assume that this does not in any way herald NCEs for those of us who've been forgotten.

The application is due on Friday, and I'm having trouble getting my parents' tax-returns. Should I be stressing over this?


+1

Interested in this as well. I probably won't qualify purely on the basis of need due to parents income so I wonder if its even worth the trouble.


+1 Does anyone have any thoughts on this?

Have rejections started going out yet? Or do they all come in one big wave?

Yes they have. At Columbia it's called the "reserve list."

I see one other admit with that complete date on LSN. And there are also a few who got held/reserved.

Yeah, just looked through last year's thread and they started doing e-mails for everyone on March 13th.

There's been a slow trickle.

If we ignore the fact we submitted at about the same time......You went complete a month earlier. I got my letter a month later. Same result. Columbia -- oddly predictable and rational, sort of?

Perhaps I'll see you next fall! Would anything sway you from the Hamilton?

Ahh, have you decided definitively on CLS, then? The Hamilton is pretty tempting, but HLS (disclaimer: haven't gotten into) has always been a dream for me academically and location-wise. We'll see how the cards play out once admissions/money/visits are all sorted out, though! It's certainly a strong contender.
