On another note, this looks like the first time Columbia is using this type of strategy so what do you think separates the people who already got Hammies/Butlers from all you above 75ths people?? Especially Lastsamurai who clearly has strong ties to NYC..
my old theory is that they assume we will all have gotten into HYS or $$$ from t10, but don't want to/have the butlers/hammys to lure us away. Simply put, perhaps we are not worth the cost.
Yeah I'd say we're like the second tier after those with amazing stats and softs. We generally avoid YP at the mid T14 so are in the running for big scholarships there but also might snag HYS, so it ultimately makes sense for Columbia to try to figure us out a little better.
What doesn't make sense is to sit on my application for 5 months to only then hold me. If they wanted more information, I wish they had asked earlier.
Either way, CLS remains one of my top choices, and I hope that they can turn around a decision early enough to make them an option.
