I think they might rescind. I just called to make sure because I wanted to see if I can attend the ASW tomorrow, and they were a little upset that I was checking by logging in instead of waiting for my letter.

They could neither confirm nor deny. But it was a veiled confirm because the guy said "if you ARE an admitted student, you can attend without an rsvp"

A friend of mine was also waitlisted at Penn yesterday. I had to talk her down from her entitled outrage -- she got into NYU and subsequenty was awarded a Roots scholarship, and couldn't understand how lowly Penn had the gall to waitlist such obvious scholarly potential. She, um, had a 164.


I'm e-friends with a girl who got that... same person maybe????

strange that they were upset. their fault for making it so easy to check! you should definitely try to go to the ASD, i think. congrats, again!

Congratulations! You were held, though, right? You got your decision by snail mail and not e-mail? :?:

Yeah. That's weird, isn't it? I hope she's not playing a prank on me. It would have to be pretty elaborate, making up the language for the letter, finding out the admitted students site password, etc.

When I get home tonight, I'll confirm and let you guys know.

Edit: Anyone waiting on UPenn, Vandy, or Fordham... I'll be withdrawing soon... same for Duke and Cornell since they haven't gotten back to me...

They took a 3.3/172 and rejected a 3.4/177 in the same day, eh? That's cold. Sorry to hear it, pertristis.

In all fairness, I am a minority. So, there is that boost.

DEAL.

Also, update: Just got an email. Waitlisted at Duke. I thought so, they're terrible with splitters.

Wow, busy day for me.

congrats on CLS! That is really fantastic.

Now for the self-interested "held" questions: Did you submit a LOCI before or after the invitation to write a letter? Are you very far from NYC?

1. I wrote one the day I got my hold letter, so 3/3. Sent the LOCI by snail mail and email - basically told them how much I loved Columbia when I went there undergrad and mentioned a gazillion times how I'm hispanic and the daughter of immigrants, what I'd love to study there, Latin American clubs I'd love to join, my corporate law experience and how much that would contribute to the class, blah, blah, blah. Sent in an additional LOR from a lawyer I work with (he let me see a draft and it was super well-written) and an updated LOR where my boss (senior partner at the firm, was a professor at NYU Law for many years) wrote that I'm the most outstanding person he's ever met in his 50+ years of practice even among first year associates (the letter seriously made me blush).

2. I'm about three miles from the school, so it must have been sent yesterday.
