Hmmm, guys I am so confused right now.
Let me start by saying that I do NOT have Columbia numbers. I am below both medians (165/3.5X) but Columbia threw me a waiver back in December so I thought, "What the hell! I'll apply." Since then, I have decided to sit a year out and re-take the LSAT so that I might actually be able to apply to schools like Columbia with decent numbers (or with a decent LSAT, at least). Because I made that decision, even though I had already sent off a few apps, I made myself forget the possibility of even getting accepted anywhere this cycle.
Fast forward to today... I remembered that I applied at Columbia and never heard anything back (not that I am expecting to get accepted or even waitlisted, but I had anticipated a rejection letter at some point). Well, I remembered that Columbia likes snail mail letters and my mailbox got taken out by a car in an unfortunate accident involving icy roads back in February and my mail got returned for a couple weeks until I was able to get it fixed. I emailed Columbia just to confirm that they had sent a reject letter that must have been returned (I mean, a 165 isn't getting in, right?) and I got a nice little message back that a decision has not yet been made on my file, and that I can request a final decision by email when it becomes available (although they cannot always guarantee that decisions are able to be sent electronically).
So... huh? Is 165 the new 170? Or is Columbia trolling me hard by not rejecting me outright?
