I spoke with someone on the admissions committee and he stated that they would begin looking over WL candidates later this month and that the first round of decisions will be sent out early June.  After the first round WL candidates will be accepted, rejected, or asked if they want to remain on the presumably shorter WL.  I hear that this business of getting waitlisted onto another WL takes place all summer long.  Officially they have a first, second and third 'Reserve Group'.  The first is the one we are currently on and if you're asked after this round if you want to remain on the WL you say yes, you will then become a part of the second Reserve Group.

Hope this helps.  Any idea how large the WL is??

I would guess that the WL "Reserve group" has somewhere between 600-1000 people on it... i just hope a lot of them withdraw!!

I just received an e-mail from the Columbia admissions committee stating that most of us will hear back from them next week.

FWIW

Oo, the tension mounts.  Any word on how the decisions will be sent?  I got the impression that snail mail would be used.

I didn't get it either. What does that mean? Any random, wild speculation? I desperately want to go to Columbia, although I recognize that getting in would rank somewhere in the miracle category.
