Does that mean you got in? Congrats!

I am surprised that ALL of the decisions for last year have the same date, though. Either an impressive logistical feat or a freak coincidence.


CLS is clearly Just. That. Good.

Yeah, thanks!! Good luck to everyone else. This is where collective knowledge is a dangerous thing, because I'm sure most of y'all are in too, but now you have to wait. :(

And for further assurance, my application status still just says "complete."

My numbers are pretty similar to that guy's. I'm going to be twitching for days.



I thought they e-mailed a scanned copy of the acceptance letter? or is that only ED...


Mallard says LSN indicates that that's only for ED. I'm a little surprised because ALLLLLL the RD acceptances last year are indicated on the same day. Don't most people use the date they received the letter? I would have thought dates would be more scattered if they did everything by snail mail.


If you look at Columbia decisions from last year on LSN they're not the exact same day. They are concentrated mostly between 1/23 and 1/25 (Wednesday through Friday), with a lot of decisions coming the next week after 1/28 also. That would seem to suggest snail mail.

In! I'm an RD.

Also got a Butler Fellowship, covers half tuition. Couldn't be happier.

It's a PDF attachment in an email, I believe they send a letter as well.

I live in the same zip code as the admissions office... I'm not auto-admit, but I've got a good shot and I've been complete since early October. Sadly I don't ever get home from work until 11pm, so that DQs me from being the harbinger.

I am indeed abroad. Perhaps that's why I got the scanned email?

Lsat is mid-170s, GPA is ~3.9.

This is one I'm quite worried about. If I don't get it near the time everyone else does then I'm probably a waitlist or reject - (NO!)

Do schollys for CLS always come with the acceptance? I won't get one, but just to stop my nagging brain if I get accepted by some chance.

I feel like my numbers can get me in to Columbia, but they only asked for my fall quarter grades *last week* via e-mail (which I sent to them immediately). Do you think I should be worried?

I'm also wondering, has consensus been reached on the meaning of the grades request? Have most people received these requests? I heard one hypothesis that it was primarily for Hamilton prospects and very borderline candidates, but this may have been dispelled.

thanks in advance
