The optimism on TLS is infectious, isn't it? :lol:

I didn't get this. Do you remember when this was sent?

March 31st. Here's the text:

We hope you are enjoying your spring. As we continue to evaluate applications for the Columbia Law School Class of 2013, we are also reviewing candidates whom we placed on "Hold" earlier in the admissions season. This year's applicant pool continues to be among the largest and most highly qualified in our history; therefore, we would like to encourage you, if you have not already done so, to submit a statement of continuing interest in Columbia that includes new pertinent information, if any. To the extent possible, kindly limit the statement to one page. Please send the statement to Danielle Flores, Assistant Director of Admissions, at danielle.flores@law.columbia.edu, no later than April 7, 2010. Upon receipt of your correspondence, we will add the statement to your file but will not be able to confirm receipt of individual statements.

At this date, we also understand that you might have committed to another law school for the next three years. While we are saddened by the loss of your candidacy, we would appreciate it if you could notify us of this as soon as possible by contacting Danielle Flores at danielle.flores@law.columbia.edu.
Thanks
Please be advised that should you remain under consideration, we will make every effort to mail your decision no later than the date specified in your letter. Thank you again for your continued patience and interest in Columbia Law School.

Thanks


I didn't get this email either. Been on hold since 3/11.

I'm wondering the same thing. Should I be compulsively checking my email or mailbox (currently inconvenient because I'm not at home)? And does CLS have different notification methods for regular, held, reserved, and deferred acceptances?

The last few have been by e-mail. Their last admitted student day is Monday the 26th, so I think they want to let admits know ASAP so they can make arrangements to come.

Probably mostly reserves. CLS doesn't like straight-out rejections.

This is a crucial piece of information. Last year, the final admitted students day was Monday the 20th, which was the second to last Monday in the month. This year, it looks to be one week later, which explains why the hold decision wave hasn't gone out yet.

Well shucks! I'd prefer the outright ding in December, honestly! Seven months of waiting after a maybe in December only to get a no in April = RUDE! lol

Thanks -- I would have posted earlier, but I was out of town. I'm not too upset, mostly because I was expecting it. I really hope that it turns out better for the rest of you though! Good luck!! :-)

I'm going to NYC on Friday and was thinking about visiting CLS. Has anyone just dropped by per the instructions on their website? I'm wondering if I should call and ask if a decision will be reached by then given the 4/21 date on our hold letters, so I can plan accordingly (also thinking it might be a nice sign of continued interest but I doubt they'd notice)

I visited per website instructions during NYU's admitted students weekend, word to the wise, come prepared with things to talk about because they don't pull your file, and they don't ask you any questions
