Update: after being deferred, I got a "you're admitted" e-mail a few moments ago.

Congrats.  Did you "do anything" in the meantime (LOCI, LOR, etc)?

Congrats. Now you've got some very hard decisions to make.

Thanks, everyone. It is nice to actually be done with the "schools giving me decisions" part of the cycle.

Yes, I did send a (pretty specific) LOCI to Columbia in the meantime; I talked about a certain graduate program that I am very interested in (it's in a subject that some of my other schools do not have a similar option for).

Is Columbia a realistic option for you at this point Rabbit, since you are in at HYS?

Did everyone else get the weird "You're still on hold" email today? What a tease. Maybe I'll send a second LOCI. An LOC-C-I.

I just got a ltr today saying I have been reserved. Very confused now, is it the same as "deferral" or "waitlist"? So anxious to know which layer I am at down their admission hierarchy.

I did.  I think it was a reminder; the deadline for submitting additional materials is Monday, and this gives people the weekend to write something up if they have not.

congrats


yeah i got that email saying "hey there little lady, you're still on hold!"   the thing is i didn't know i was on hold in the first place!  the letter must have gotten lost in the mail.  well, that's a comforting thought. what an anticlimactic end to my cycle.
