Sunday's the worst. At least on Saturday you might get something in the mail but on Sunday you know you won't hear anything.

Almost everytime I look up someone says, "In at NYU." I hope the trend at Columbia is similar.

In at Cornell and Notre Dame. If you have extensive WE, in at NW, if not, maybe. Slight-decent shot at Berkeley depending on your socio-economic status.

I applied Thanksgiving weekend

GPA: 3.99
LSAT: 164
URM: Mexican-American

Decent Softs - A couple gov't internships, 1 year law firm WE, inner-city community work, and UCLA Law Fellows Program.

In at Stanford, NYU, Berkeley, Michigan, Georgetown, UCLA!

Still waiting to hear back from the other T-14, so far no WL or Rejections. Fingers crossed! Stay hopeful fellow URM's!

Hello all! Checking in with some of my acceptances! Definitely want to add to the list so future urm applicants can see the places poc can go!

In: UVA, Michigan, NYU, Berkeley, Vandy, Duke
Waiting: Yale, Stanford, Columbia, Harvard

Honestly, I am gunning for both Yale and Stanford though they are a reach for everyone. While I feel grateful for the schools I have been accepted to, I would be *thrilled *to get in at either Y or S. Like-pass-out-and-hit-the-floor-and-scream-like-it-is-a-church-revival thrilled. :P

In the meantime, I am hoping for a phone call or email with good news.

I don't think so. Isn't Columbia one of the schools that really do wait to see the URM application pool as a whole and then starts making decisions? I feel like URM acceptances at Columbia don't start going out (en masse) until like late Feb. But I think URM admissions at Columbia is wierd anyway....[list=][/list]

Edit: I guess EttaJ just proved me wrong lol. Congrats!

Congrats, EttaJ! Mind sharing your numbers? (You can PM me if you'd like, I'm just really curious. Columbia is my #1 choice.)
