Thank you!!


My link doesn't work either, but are we sure this is the second reserve? I feel like I've gotten at least 3 of these fake "decision" emails by now


The letter I got definitely says "/secondreserve". I was a bit confused too, as this is the second time they've made a "non-decision" which would seem to suggest we're on 3rd reserve, but who knows. Columbia works in mysterious ways.

My letter says "/ugeqpf reserve" so I'm not sure what that's about. It also says that registration and orientation begins on "O qpday, August 19". Maybe I got a fake letter.

Did people also receive rejection emails yesterday? I'm going nuts trying to figure out the significance of being left out of this wave of emails.

Yeah, my letter said the same thing when I looked at it in the gmail preview reader, but when I DL'ed the pdf and viewed it in Acrobat, it was readable. Some sort of font compatibility error or something.

It could mean anything ... it might mean that you have a rejection coming your way (they seem to do rejections by snail mail) but it could also just mean they haven't sent out all the reserve emails yet and you'll get it after the long weekend. Who knows, maybe they are waiting to contact you about an interview. Columbia admissions knows no rules.

Man that's so strange. DL'ed it and it says /secondreserve but links me to /VHRFQGreserve.

Hi all,

New to this, but am desperate for info. Columbia placed me on reserve in April, and I received an email saying I'm still on reserve on June 4th. I've since sent a LOCI, which they responded saying they added to my file on June 24th, and haven't heard anything since. Does anyone know what "pile" I'm in right now? Anyone else in this same situation?

Thanks!!!!

Did you receive an email after June 24th, specifically the letter with the link to the second reserve?

I didn't... however is was after the 24th that they confirmed the letter was added to my file. Should I have gotten an email? I'm scared.

No... I got the email saying they were adding the LOCI to my file on the 25th. And that's all I've heard. Should I have gotten an email? I'm scared...

Don't want to disappoint you, but it's very likely that you got rejected...I didn't received the second reserve email and sent them an LOCI on Monday, yet they hadn't responded to it till now...Seems that they use snail mail to reject people...

I got the second reserve e-mail as well. Does anyone know what the chances of us waiters are? I mean it looks like not everyone is getting the option to stay on. But finding out ten or so days before orientation? It's kind of nerve-wrecking. Besides, tuition is due in my actual law school before that. Do we get refunded in full if we choose to go to Columbia? Also, what are our actual chances if we've been asked to the second reserve?

I'm pretty sure you have to be refunded tuition if you withdraw before classes start, although you might want to check with your school to see their policy. As for chances, I thought someone earlier said no one was admitted beyond this point? I would expect our chances to be very remote, but we'll see.

I'm not an international student, but didn't get the second reserve email and haven't yet received a snail mail rejection. Maybe they've forgotten about us?
