Ok that makes me feel better. I have a 4.5 index I think, so I was worried/confused about no grade request. Glad I am not the only one.

I hate to complain AGAIN, but can we move this discussion elsewhere? I am going nuts waiting for the mail, and only want to know if more people are accepted.

This is actually the right place for this discussion. The "accepted to Columbia" threads will be in the Law School Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists section. Since this is a "Waiting Thread," this is completely on-topic.

I'm 4.3 so CLS is a reasonable possibility but I'm not counting on it.

Yes, LSN now show auto-admits but I bet it's like last year and it is just one big acceptance batch. The small sample probably just shows auto-admits as a coincidence.

And congrats mallard on the scholly. Although, I admit a certain amount of jealousy induced antipathy towards you because you seem to get all the acceptance that I want. :wink:

Is anybody in on LSN without scholly? Everyone I've seen on here or talked to who's in so far has Butler or Hamilton.

Good catch Mallard, it doesn't look like it.

So it seems like a reasonable assumption that they've only burnt through the scholarship pile so far.

Good luck all!

dammit, why must mail be so slow, or even used at all! I am going to obsess until I can go home and check my mailbox, and then when I have nothing (because I'm in DC), I am going to obsess some more. It sounds like a very unhealthy weekend.

A little birdie tells me on PM that they have received an acceptance without scholly. So that theory is wrong.

If you look on LSN, Columbia accepted people with and without scholarships all at the same time last year, starting around 1/24. It looks like that batch took up to a week and a half to reach people. Rejections/Waitlists started going out Feb. 1, so take that as you will. Does anyone know what kinds of envelopes rejections/waitlists come in?

Did this person give some sort of idea of where they lived (NYC/East Coast/rest of world)

Why do people care about the envelopes so much? It is weird.

Eh, I got into a habit of wanting to know about the envelopes after my roommate called me at work in October to tell me I had gotten a tiny envelope from Georgetown. I searched these forums and found out that it likely was an acceptance, so I had some peace of mind all day.

Idiosyncrasy? Yes. :)

if something was sent to me, it didn't reach upstate ny (not very upstate). though with a 4.2 its probably just as likely nothing was sent
