Also-- I was added to the SECOND reserve group on June 20th, and haven't heard anything from them since, other than an email saying they'd received my second LOCI last week. I hadn't heard anything about a third reserve group until I started going through this thread today. Does anyone have any idea what that means?


I'm not sure, but just in case... Did you check your spam/junk mail? I was placed on second reserve awhile ago and when I didn't hear anything when the wave of third reserve happened, I assumed I was booted. THEN I just happened to call and gave them my LSAC number to see what was up, and the dude was like, oh, we sent you an email... And I didn't catch this until the DAY before I was supposed to respond. Freakin' gmail filtered that but not, you know, the 1000 other actual junk mails from law schools lol. But then idk, they said they received your LOCI. Wouldn't hurt to check though, I suppose.

Just called. Supposedly no decision rendered yet, and we're all supposed to hear back "in the next day or two."

Is the expected email going to be a final decision? What's the chance of this getting dragged out another week or so? Last year's thread went on until around August 22.

Greetings all,

I've been following this thread for a while but haven't posted yet (Haven't posted at TLS at all, actually). After a few calls over the past weeks, this is the information I've gathered from 3 different people at the admissions office. I hope it helps:

1) It is likely that those who will receive admission will be notified via phone/email. This shouldn't come as a surprise considering the trends in this thread.
2) Rejections are sent out via post (also in accordance with the trend in this thread). An admissions official said most decisions will be rendered by post (since more are likely to get rejected than offered admission, this should be expected).
3) One of the officials plainly said they expect 1-2 offers of admissions, based on historical trends (they were quick to state that historical trends are also irrelevant). When asked if those admissions are the seats of people who fail to show up for roll call at orientation, they said it was likely so.
4) Previous posts stated that the latest we will find out could be next week. If decisions are made tomorrow, the day of orientation, then the rejections (which would come via post) would probably hit your mail box sometime next week.

Hope that helps anyone.

Good luck to us all.

Nothing.
There was movement off Stanford's wait list so I'm praying that means openings at Columbia. Guess we will see next week.....

I called yesterday and today and got the same response: no decision has been made yet. My feeling is that they're kind of not actively reviewing files at this point lol. And we didn't hear of anyone being rejected from second reserve to third reserve, did we? Kind of makes me think they just moved everyone over to third reserve, but who really knows.

It's just so frustrating. I'm (stupidly) still holding off on signing a lease, and I'm trying to figure out when is the exact time I should abandon all hope but am definitely not getting a clear, non-vague answer from admissions lol. I mean, I understand why they're so tight-lipped, but ungh. What do you guys think? Considering today and tomorrow is their registration/orientation and that classes start on Monday, do you think if we don't hear any good news by the end of tomorrow that it's ~~time to move on once and for all?

I'm kind of thinking if we don't hear by tomorrow it's unlikely, just because I can't imagine that they would be accepting students after the first day of classes. Although at this point I'm just guessing. Our best bet might be to get #holla@mecolumbia trending on Twitter.

Unfortunately my tag is a bit revealing. However, I'll tweet if you'll tweet. Also, I'm writing this from another school's orientation. #yolo

Also called today. Got the same vague answer everyone else seemed to get. Still no decisions. Does anyone have an idea of what they'll do in regard to housing at this point?

Lol just called again. Still no decision. Has anyone else called today? Do you think they're even still looking at files or are beginning to send out rejection letters? I wish I could just get mine so I could finally give up lol, but alas. Does anyone else plan on throwing in the towel come Monday morning? This isn't healthy for me lol.

I emailed Wednesday afternoon restating my interest. Still no response. Not surprised. I'm holding out until the letter comes since I'm already living in NY.

Also rejected. At least I'm happy they sent an email so we didn't have to wait around for snail mail? lol idk.

So do you think they've got a full class now and there aren't any spots left to fill? There were a few people in this thread I was really rooting for, so I hope there's still a chance for them.
