That's my guess, drawstring. Here's to hoping!

Because we are uncertain regarding the plans of some applicants whom we have already admitted, it is necessary for us to postpone making a determination on your application until the end of May, when we will begin reviewing those candidates on Reserve and offering some admission to our 2014 class.

Also, sorry to hear that but there is still hope!

Subject: Please see the attached document for a decision on your application

First line of the email: We wish to inform you that, after careful deliberation, our admissions committee has decided to postpone making a final decision on your candidacy.

I think that, by definition, is not a decision.

Ditto. I was placed on First Reserve. Does your letter make mention of same?

I'm not even sure what this means.

GL to those still waiting!

Sorry for all those placed on reserve :( though I'm not quite sure what that means. Is it a waitlist? A hold?

I got this too. It's basically "We've decided...that it's too early to decide." :lol:

so we were waitlisted right? They just don't want to call it that? Their description of "reserved" sounds an awful lot like the definition of "waitlisted". I am confused if I should be sending an LOCI or if I should just wait to be officially waitlisted THEN send it...

I don't think columbia has a "waitlist". They just call it reserve but it's the same thing except for the fact that they don't rank the list (they look at the group as a whole when they decide to accept people).

So basically a way to not have rolling admissions while having rolling admissions. Why does any place do this? Why don't they just change from rolling to precipice admissions?

There are a lot of people in this boat. It's not necessarily a bad thing.

Mannn waitlists are coming out? Just as I thought it would be okay not to be afraid of my email anymore after the Harvard rejection wave seems to have passed. Now this.

For so many months I was eagerly and excitedly checking my email. Now I'm scared to.
