e-mail.

not sending a why penn is a kiss of death.

/what everyone should know by now.

Ehhh.  I had my reason, but I guess it wasn't a good enough reason not to.

On "hold" at Chicago and on "reserve" at Columbia. I think I'll withdraw.  The thought of waiting until at least late May for a final decision sounds unbearable at this point.  So I'll make a final decision myself :)

I'd stick it out for Chi at least...they do wp sometimes, I'd expect you to get in by mid April with $$

Do you think Columbia might be a YP as well?

I think so.  The word "reserve" still makes me feel better about it though.

I think "reserve" is worse than "waitlist", at least at Cornell. They review some apps and take them off the reserve and place on a smaller waitlist...so pretty much another cycle but only for WL this time around.

there is no such thing as a wait list at CLS.  at least that's what i got from the letter.

Dinged at BC today after being deferred for months...ugh.  At least they were kind enough not to wait until their deadline to do so. (their deadline to mail out decisions is 2/29.)

Yea, real nice people over there to give you that notice a week in advance. Kind of surprised given your almost perfect GPA. Better luck on your last 2 pending.
