I too have not received a letter yet, and when I called them, they said there was no decision and that I would likely hear something the middle of next week.  I think its impossible to read something out of this situation -- they could be just sending the reserve letters out as they get through people, the delay could mean we've made it to the final deliberation for whatever spots are open, or there could be no spots open so they are debating whether or not to keep us on reserve at all.  That's the annoying thing about reserve, you can still be rejected. I guess next week will tell!

I got it over the weekend, too.  I am withdrawing from the waitlist.  I am excited about UVa, have a deposit on an apartment there, and I just want this process over with.
UVa it is!

Has anyone *not* received the second reserve letter or has anyone been released from rserve?

As of today, I have neither received the second reserve letter nor been released from reserve...

I stand corrected: I was "released" over the weekend...  Good luck to all those who remain... (To tell the truth, I'm rather glad this is over, because now I only have Chicago to worry about...)

anoddock - sorry to hear that. i am sure i'll be joining you soon . . .

p.s. I love that quote in your sig!

Yeah, I'm ok with it though--it was probably the only school that I might have abandoned Michigan for...

As for the quote, thanks!  (And it really is true... My parents laughed their heads off...)

I STILL have not received any update from Columbia.. now I'm thinking that they're waiting to see who chooses to withdraw from the waitlist (I mean "reserve", sorry) to see how many more ppl they need to offer to stay on the next waitlist.

UPDATE:  I received my second "Reserve" letter today in the mail.  I think they're just sending these things to almost everyone still on the reserve list.

So - given that no one on LSD, LSN or xoxo got in off of reserve this time around - I wonder if it can be assumed that they didn't accept anyone?  Or maybe that can't be assumed.  Anyone who's in at Columbia hear anything about their yield this year? 
UVa it is!
