I'm guessing since there's admitted student events @ Columbia today, we won't be seeing any hold movement? :cry:

Any hope for held folks with April 27 almost here?
Or are we too going to add to the bench strength?

Hate to say this but I expect rejection snail mail every day. I wish they would just email it so that the torture is not prolonged.

Seems like you're 170+ too. The drop in that score range hasn't helped fortunes as expected. Just posted a question on these lines in the Spivey thread. Anyone has a theory/perspective/expert view on this?

I put in a request for email notification and they said they'd add the request to my file.

I'm expecting Reserve any day now. I really don't think many of us will get a ding, because they hardly ding anyone and we were good enough to get the hold instead of Reserve a couple months ago. But since a handful of people have already gotten in from Hold, I think Reserve is all that's left.

I think this is likely, since no one has reported hearing since Thursday and all of those people were Reserved. I did notice on LSN that 4/5 of those who reported getting Reserved last Thursday were sub-170s, so maybe those of us who are 170+ still have hope? My numbers twins got in in January :(

For those who are held and should receive a decision by 4/27 (which I understand could still be a reserve), will all decisions come via email? Or do accepted students get a phone call?

I'm under the impression that dings will be sent via snail mail but I can't figure out if the 4/27 deadline is "we'll mail it by 4/27" or "you'll get it by 4/27"
