Has anyone heard anything about the Columbia reserve list recently?  I dont remember what they said in their letter about a timeframe, but was hoping that maybe someone on LSD had talked to the admissions office about it in the past couple of weeks...?

I don't think they're even looking at us until June.

I just called the Admissions Office.  The woman I spoke with said that the review process of reserve candidates has begun, but no decisions have been sent yet.  Also, we should "hear something by the end of the month".  Fingers crossed....

Everyone should hear by the end of the month, or just those who are accepted?
