Based on the data provided in this thread, of the T14 Columbia historically accepts the fewest people from their reserved list (as a % of people placed on the reserved list). Something like 3% of reserved applicants ultimately get admitted.


This is very true historically. However, it may not hold true this year. They've done some very unusual things with admissions this year and a lot may change.


What unusual things?


u must be new here


I am, thanks

Late to the game, but got an admit email this past Wednesday. Median GPA, above 75th LSAT.

Waiting for the financial aid offer, any thoughts on what to expect? $$ from NYU

Proper thread: viewtopic.php?f=38&t=221350&start=925

Anecdotally, it seems like most people have gotten more from CLS than NYU so far.

Yes reserve is the same as a waitlist.

Based on the data provided in this thread, of the T14 Columbia historically accepts the fewest people from their reserved list (as a % of people placed on the reserved list). Something like 3% of reserved applicants ultimately get admitted.

They introduced randomized (at least, supposedly randomized) interviews, released the first wave of decisions later than in past cycles, etc. Just really unpredictable this year.

Sent to reserve on Friday. Likely depositing at NYU this week. Enjoy New York, folks.

So when do you all think us stragglers should expect decisions? IIRC, someone contacted admissions and was told "hopefully" May 1st. Any reason to believe it will take much longer than that?

At this point, I'm pretty much just assuming I'll get a reserve email at 4:30 on May 1 at the earliest.

Held month ago, late grade request, called today and they said they would have a decision tomorrow. Expecting reserve because everyone else was, but whatever


So, I assume if no email tomorrow, the ding is in the mail?
