Wait so do we no longer have a consensus about admits being emailed and not snail mailed for this batch?

Dear Columbia,

You are a pretentious B**ch if I've every seen one. You send meaningless invites (fee waivers) to dudes you wouldn't considering banging in your sleep. You love the attention, phone calls, and love letters you receive daily. You pull us along on a string just because you can...because we're pathetic enough to dream of spending our nights with you. Although your location and connections will keep you looking pretty for many years...I will never consider dating you or allowing any of my children to do so either. You will never receive a penny of my future fortune, and I will be a dedicated member of your local competitor's family.

Summary: Fu*K you Columbia...

--TheWire (NYU class of 2013)


Haha, that's funny because I can almost say the same to NYU. 7 months and not a single word!

I think admits are e-mailed, but it's unclear if there will be any more admits.

I believe admits are still by e-mail and reserves/rejections are not based on correspondence from CLS this month and last year at this time.

Hey guys, I got a letter in the mail (dated 4/19) placing me in a "Reserve" group. This is after being placed in a "Hold" group back in February. My numbers are below both quartiles. I am not a URM. Is this some sort of sick joke or is there actually a scenario that they could conceive of admitting me? There isn't even data anywhere near my would-be point on LSN. Have any "Hold" applicants been subsequently rejected at this point?

Amazing. Only one recorded admit from regular hold a few weeks ago. No admit from hold batch. CLS's yield must have been very high this time around...

Reserve is usually a soft reject, but there's always a slim chance of acceptance.

For those you that applied in January and weren't held, have you heard back yet? I just wonder why Columbia is waiting this long to reject me.

The good people at the Admissions Office emailed back and, as almost anyone could have guessed (by now), promptly refused to let me in on their decision. But at least I was thanked for my continued interest...

...you've really forced me to remain interested, Columbia.

Empty mailbox in CA. Btw, idk about your hold letter, but mine didn't say they'd get the decision out by today; instead, it said that I will receive a decision no later than today.

Sooo..... wtf? :?: :|

did you get the follow up email cause in that they said they would try to get the decisions out on the day indicated in my hold letter so im giving them the benefit of the doubt. really hoping to get some closure by friday but i think if we didnt get an email by today were heading for the reserve pile.

Same here (NY). I imagine it means we are all reserve/rejections. So much for that day that was not the day...

No, they've been disconcertingly quiet with me. I never got that email, nor one asking for a LOCI. Dang, I'm disappointed because I can't figure out if it was because of my numbers, or because I applied late, or because I screwed up royally on some part of my app. :?

:( :( :( *siiiiigh* Yeah you're probably right.

Yeah, except I haven't heard a word from them since I went complete on 2/18. Wonder if I should call CLS/NYU tomorrow.

Columbia's status check never changes once it goes complete.
