Anyone know what days the admissions committee will meet next week? Is it just Christmas Day they take off? Only a few days left here for them to get back to us ED applicants...

no love here today. The wait continues. Hopefully I am not the last ED applicant on the planet. Maybe the dog ate my application

For some reason I assumed no one would hear anything from any schools until after the new year. Time to refresh application statuses again!

I'm going to go look at last year's data- were people let in at ANY t14 the 4th week of December?

Nice, thanks for the info! If you don't mind, can you PM me the number you called? Not that I don't believe you, I'm just bored and lazy and I figured I'd give it a listen lol

Dinged ED, as expected. 162, 3.76, non-URM. Very politely-worded letter made me feel less bad, though. As did simultaneously receiving another letter informing me of a nice scholarship elsewhere ^^ Soooo glad I got the two letters the same day. Really softened the blow. Congrats to everyone getting in!

Sorry to hear that.. glad you got some good news from another school on the same day! Did you hear back from Columbia via email or post/snail mail?

Snail mail. It was very gentle. Something like "we regret to inform you we cannot offer you a favorable outcome" ... aww. I still love you, Columbia. Someday, somehow maybe.

Roughly the same for me. I retook the LSAT in December and I suspect that that's why mine still hasn't gone complete. It's hard to tell though because while some universities mark you as complete once you have a score down, others will hold off completion until they have all your scores without you necessarily telling them to.

If you didn't retake, I'd email them and ask about it.

For those of you who have been admitted, do you know when Accepted Students Days are? I need to plan my spring semester and if I get in (fingers are very very much crossed!) I really want to be able to visit. Thank you!

Roughly the same except they are not waiting for me to send them anything new like a new LSAT score...

Today has to be the day for the rest of the ED decisions right? I mean, who wants to work on a Saturday or on New Year's Eve...

I am also waiting for my ED decision. I agree that today has to be the last day we can hear good news (via email) but not necessarily the last day we can get bad news. It seems like they are sending ding letters via regular snail mail (can anyone confirm this?), in which case they could be mailing out one final wave of dings today that would be postmarked for the end of December but that we wouldn't receive until probably the first week of January. In my mind if I don't get an email today with good news I think it is safe to assume a ding will arrive via snail mail Jan 1-4. :shock:

Waitlist decisions are sent via email or snail mail? Is it only rejections that come in the mail?
