Sorry to rain on your parade 0Ls, but you might be in for a long wait. (No, I don't know anything, just that CLS is really slow and many of us didn't find anything out until the end of the cycle). That said, the wait is worth it. Good luck!

Are you referring to getting off WL? At least according to the graph in the OP, big waves of RD decisions come out in end of Jan/Feb. Please let us know if you think the graph is misleading!

There's definitely and initial wave, but there is also a slow trickle. Some folks got in off of the "hold" status, but WL doesn't really work the same at Columbia. Before "reserve" was a kiss of death, but I think some people got in off of the reserve last year. But, some people just sit with no response for an extended period of time. If you read the past thread they normally go by "the forgotten" or something like that.

So, it's hard to predict when you're going to hear anything. It might take a while. Be patient.

I should probably just change my username to the forgotten. I am more sure than I ever have been about anything in life that I will be one to CLS

Many of the forgotten eventually got in, so there are worse things to be.

It does look like last year there were people who submitted in September and got nothing but silence until March or even April :shock:

Anyone think it could possibly be a good sign if my status checker no longer recognizes that I'm an applicant? Worked as recently as Friday. I'll give it a day or two before I call.

Not working for me, either. Probably just a glitch in their system......

Choosing to believe in this theory as mine isn't working either. Does anyone have a status checker that still works?

When you all say "down", do you mean you're getting a message that begins
