They haven't even given me the chance to write a LOCI. I'm headed straight to the "suck it, applicant" pile.

The optimism in this thread died a long time ago, my friend.

i am not being optimistic or pessimistic, i just went through the data and know the odds for most held applicants are bad, especially borderlines like me.

You won't pay sticker at Chi but sticker at CLS would make your decade? To each their own, I guess.

Any word on Holds at Columbia? I haven't been following it.. but is this gonna be a Harvard/Stanford-esque lengthy process? Or are they gonna just put us all on reserve..

I anticipate CLS offering me a decent need-based grant (based TLS + LSN data). I also want to work in NYC and CLS's LRAP is much better than Chicago's.

I'd pay sticker at Chicago... although I get to live at home if I get in, so I'd save a good deal of cash. NYC cost of living scares me. Of course my hold will probably be a WL or rejection anyways.

I have to decided to give you my seat at Chicago.
Prepare for the call.
Enjoy ;).

I have been complete for some time. Haven't received a decision, haven't been held. Should I send a LOCI?

Dinged today. Complete 2/05. Subsequently Held.

I was pretty confident heading into this cycle with my 178 LSAT, but CLS, my first choice, yelled at me and threw a Black's Law Dictionary at my face.

*shaking fist in anger*

You obviously have a great LSAT so I'm sure you have some great options otherwise. But, this is the first hold --> rejection I've seen for CLS. Any others?

ETA: Did you get the e-mail encouraging you to submit a LOCI that was sent last week?

how are things going on the financial aid front, people? i submitted my stuff right around the deadline, so i imagine i will be on the late end of offers. do they come by mail or email? i am getting antsy because i live abroad and it will take a couple of weeks for my deposit to get there once i find out where i am going. let me know if this stuff is being discussed elsewhere.

I think we briefly talked about it in the "in at columbia" thread in this same subforum, but I got my offer e-mailed to me on April 1st, and I got a real letter a day or two ago. I think I got the e-mail because I e-mailed Columbia and told them about my NYU offer and its deadline.

also, I sent in some of my forms on time and others a few days late.

finally, you know you can pay your columbia deposit online, right? they have an option on the admitted students site where you can put in a credit card # and pay the deposit that way. I dunno if other schools have a similar option.

i had no idea! thanks!! i feel retarded for not checking that. the other school i am considering (chicago) requires that their deposit be mailed by their april 30 deadline, so i guess i can cool my heels for a while.
