Ok, this makes me feel a little calmer, though I'm assuming you went complete in January?

I think maybe you should call. But I heard literally nothing from HLS for 6 months before I was WL'd, so who knows? Accidentally not telling you seems more like an NYU move at this point.


Yeah like I kept telling myself not to worry, but I've had no communication from them and I applied in October. And it seems like lsa16 is the only other person in my shoes.

I sent a loci in march and they responded, but that's about it.


It seems like if you sent an loci in march and they responded they know you're out there waiting to find out your status?


Wasn't sure if they thought it would be a loci due to being waitlisted. I'm just wondering if I just never received the email. Lol idk what's normal anymore. Guess I'll just hang tight till April 28..



Hmmm yeah I see that


:shock: not what I wanted to hear lol


I applied in December. Went complete 12/28. Nothing at all- no hold, no waitlist, no ding. I have been expecting a ding letter in the mail since late March, and still nothing.

Let us know where you end up depositing!

I just received this email:

"We wish to inform you that, after careful deliberation, our Admissions Committee has decided to postpone making a final decision on your candidacy, and we are placing your application in our Reserve group. Because we are uncertain about 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 possibly offering some admission to our 2017 entering class."

Then I was prompted to fill out a form with a url ending in /firstreserve. Is this standard waitlist? Better? Worse?

What are your stats if you don't mind telling me? Wondering whether I should expect a reserve or a ding.

Thanks! I lost emotion three months ago so I'm glad to know someone else is angry for me LOL

I'm just relieved that I didn't miss an email in Feb, and that they really took this long to decide. More of a shot than I thought I had going in, honestly.

Someone on LSN who was reserved as well applied ED, so they must be wrapping it up. They said they review those applicants again in April.

Guys is there anything to be gained at this point by emailing my interviewer and telling her how much I want to throw a deposit at Columbia? Is this my desperation setting in?
