The later it gets in the cycle, the more they start to email decisions, and follow it up with a VCE. When I was accepted, I got an email.

So I was sent a reserve email recently and my numbers are autoding. Can I spin this as a positive and say this is better than if they outright rejected me? I am considering taking the LSAT in June (will most likely) and also writing a LOCI soon.

Should I mention the LSAT in June since I'll probably be waiting into the summer anyways? Any advice/input would be appreciated since I am very much reaching with this school.

Reserve=ding at Columbia. They waitlist everybody and their grandmas. Not so much a fan of rejecting people.

So there is pretty much 0 chance to get in at this point and I shouldn't bother?

Depends on your numbers. If you really are below both medians and non-URM then it's not looking good. But of course give it your best shot especially if you would have regrets if you don't.

I'm not sure if I'd be classified as URM for them since I know some schools will still give at least some boost to a Hispanic non-URM. I'm above their 25th but not median for GPA. I guess I'll give it my best shot cause you never know. Thanks for the info though, I'll have to keep that in mind.

Just for the record, I received nothing via mail or email today. Submitted in September -- I will post when I get reserved/held.

eta: sorry Lavitz, but yeah, their loss given your scholarships at Cornell and NYU...
