Yes, because he will be leaving money on the table if he EDs.

You love to ask questions and derail your own thread, don't you? :lol: :lol: :lol:

Seriously, just focus your time and energy on preparing a solid package. I think folks have already answered your question: that neither you -- nor your friend -- should ED to CLS.

Best of luck and keep us posted on the URM 2012-2013 Cycle thread!

I feel like there's a lot of false hope going on in this thread. It's wonderful that a few AAs were able to get into Columbia with significantly below-median numbers, but that's kind of... unlikely.

http://myLSN.info/dispresults.php?sk=k89i5

This includes all URMs, and I'm sure the 4 that got in with your numbers were AA, but if you're gunning for Columbia, I'd ED. I'd also throw apps at Chicago and NYU in case that doesn't work out, If you have a judge that's willing to pitch you a clerkship and you really want NYC, I don't know why NOT Columbia ED. (Especially when only 1 in 4 of those admits even got money on LSN)

EDIT> Depending on how cool you are with NYU, considering skipping ED Columbia all together and take your chances with NYU RD for teh munnies.

Last time I was on the Columbia waitlist and didn't make it. Hadn't applied early enough. What should I do? I really want to go to CLS


amazing that you have a clerkship offer. mention that in your personal statement.

So now that he's realized foregoing mention of his ethnicity/race may have placed him on the WL, this time around he wants to play the race card to his advantage for admittance?

Brilliant. I guess. Do whatever you can to get into a T5...right? :?

And I'm not sure if legacy matters for CLS. I suspect not.

Thanks for all the great advice. You are all very sweet :D

How about Chicago if he applies in September though r.d.? I think he would be very productive and happy there

From what my parents tell me of their UofC days, no one goes there to be happy.

Would it be easier for him to get into U-Chicago though? His first choice is Columbia but if that doesn't work out he knows he'll be happier at U-C than anywhere else.

Thanks for your charm and compassion, everyone :D

When you delete all your posts for no good reason, you might be removing info that would be useful to someone else later. If you left them, TLS might not have to have this exact same conversation with the next person who asks.

That would be because, as Chicagoans surely know, UChicago is where fun goes to die.

Not true. UChicago is a very different place now. Heck it's vastly different than what is was 4 years ago. There's tons of fun to be at UChicago. It is quite a different feel from its peers, but some people are extraordinarily happy there
