Have you submitted an LOCI? I did, and received an invitation for a brief phone interview a week later... My GPA is WAY below their 25th.


How low are we talking? And URM? I submitted one on Thursday or Friday.



PMed my stats

No, because I applied ED so I figured that would be enough to show my level of interest.
I really don't think I have a chance.

Have you heard back yet?? Do you think they're just going to randomly call during the times we said we'd be available???!

No word yet. WRT random calls, I hope not and I doubt it since she said that in order to schedule the conversations as expeditiously as possible we should respond asap.

Also no email here since sending them my available times. Thank God for you two. If I didn't know nobody else got confirmation I'd be weeping in a pool of despair right now cursing myself for not making sure they got my email.

I hope we hear something by the end of the day because I said I'd be good to go starting tomorrow at 10:30

Edit: btw do you want to pm your stats and ill pm mine back? I want a feel for the range they're looking at

Write them back and tell them you don't change your clocks for religious reasons and then send an additional diversity statement about it.

Any idea when first reserve ends and they ask if you want to remain on for second reserve?

Last year that happened in the first or second week of June. However, they started accepting reserve peeps in early May, so maybe the timeline will be pushed back this year?

Take your time Columbia. Wether it takes you 8 months or 9 to give me my inevitable D makes no difference to me at this point.

Does TLS think a LOCI is even worthwhile at this point? Probably the only WL left that I would consider attending, but would not do so at sticker....
