i really cannot figure out what CLS admissions strategy is this cycle.  But, it must  be a response to the fact that they fell into a tie w/ NYU last year. i.e. they are somehow gaming the numbers.  oh well, its tough to tell from the outside looking in.

Put on "hold" at Columbia today, in a letter dated January 31. :(

Also rejected from Stanford, but that was assumed.

So, what can I do to maximize my chances of getting accepted into Columbia off of hold? Columbia is one of my top choices, if not my top choice (I need to visit these places).

Recieved Columbia admit email today.. no envelope yet, though. Guess mail to Canada is real slow.

I must say, it was a very pleasant surprise, nonetheless!

Ah, count me in on the Columbia hold, too.

Alas, I'm oh-so-serious.

Well, I'm sorry Brito, but not really, because I'm positive you're going to get into both C&C soon! And Harvard!!

Aww, thanks.  But if I do end up with C&C, I don't think it'll be too soon.

That is completely bizarre....

Not really, I had similar numbers and I was held too. If you search LSN there aren't many people w/ indexes above 4.4 that were held, but if you search the posts her on LSD there are quite a few. I guess most of us just aren't updating our LSN profiles w/ the Columbia hold news.

Oh no, not you too Brito! It seems like Columbia and Chicago are being very like-minded this cycle...many applicants that were put on hold by one are getting held by the other as well.

On another note, have you had your phone call w/ TStock yet? An acceptance from H would certainly take the sting out of these two deferrals.

I'm waiting for a Chitown deferral as well. If Columbia deferred me, it's looking more and more like Chicago will too.

Yes, I talked with him today.  And you're right about taking the sting out!  An H acceptance would certainly do the trick.  This is the first time in the cycle when Harvard has seemed like a plausible destination.  We'll see how the next week or so goes.
