haven't heard anything from CLS yet, but guess it would be 3rd Reserve or Rejection...

I'm beginning to assume that, since I still haven't heard anything, my rejection letter is making its way to me in the mail...

I just called CLS admissions to see if a decision had been sent out to me. (I had called them during regular admissions, and they had confirmed then that no decision was sent out, so I was thinking it might work again.) The woman I spoke to basically said she was not able to tell if a decision had been sent but that decisions will continue to be sent through the end of next week. I double checked with her that nothing was put in the mail, and she said she really did not know.

Granted, I also called yesterday, and the woman I spoke to then (different person) said to send in an email because they could only respond via email. I did that, and they never replied.

i emailed them once and they got back to me a few days later, so u may see a reply manyana. Columbia is playing us all. What a joke to waitlist everyone with a 164+.

im not

above medians to the poster asking about that.

If you're not going to go if you get in it'd be potentially super helpful to those of us still interested for you to just go ahead and let columbia know that you're no longer planning to attend if accepted.


Yes second this!!


Slight disagree. As someone who wants to get in, you should still ride it as long as it could possibly benefit you in some way - either attending CLS or using it as leverage. Please do withdraw once you know you cannot benefit though :)



lets be real

they're jerkin me around this long - im gonna jerk them around a lil bit

but yeah theres no downside for me to stay on so im stayin


you'd only be jerking them around if by miracle's chance you got accepted. any other outcome it is percieved they jerked you.

but it only has to make sense to you.

do you have plans to wait till next cycle or attend another school?

despite being played, i rather this than a flat out rejection. i looked on lsn and columbia doesn't reject a lot of people, if lsn is any indication.

i wonder why.

it does seem, if tls is any indication (lol) that 3rd reserve is a lot smaller.

I think third reserve is a lot smaller, and they are cutting down a lot of the people who were silent or probably won't make it. There is still 1% chance of getting in given 1-2 people who might become orientation no-shows.

100-200 people who made it to 3rd Reserve? I thought that was around the number of people who originally were placed on 1st Reserve. It's so surprising that no one has reported being invited to interview/accepted outright from the 2nd Reserve and that Columbia seems to want to wait until the end of 3rd Reserve to potentially let people in.

so you think its even less? idk-i have no idea. i hope its even less this time around that way the odds in favor increase.

didn't a few people from 2nd reserve get interviews? i remember reading that.

I don't think they reject anyone initially. They let everyone (who has a remote chance) stay on reserve. So at this point, it's probably 100+ people fighting for 1-2 spots. In other words, make other plans.

I'm only staying on myself because I live very close and it won't really hurt me other than the deposit I paid at another NYC school.
