Columbia Law School 2012!

Postby TU09 » Fri Nov 28, 2008 4:09 pm

Hey, I didn't see a Columbia 2012 group yet so I figured I should start one. I got my ED acceptance letter two days ago and can't wait for Sept to come around. Anyone else hear yet? Let's get excited, we're going to one of the country's best law schools in arguably the best city in the world. Insane.

Congrats! I applied ED too but haven't heard anything yet - are you really the only one around here who's gotten in so far?

Don't know...I applied really early in the cycle, probably went complete around the second or third week of September, so maybe that made a difference. I hope some people hear soon so I have some company. Good luck!

I can't tell you how reassuring it is to see two people get into Columbia on this forum with numbers almost identical to mine. I also applied ED, so I hope I'm also lucky!

It looks like all ED people should get their decisions by December 10th since that seems to be the last date that most ED applicants heard back in previous years.

I check my mail every day and my heart literally skips a beat every time I see a small envelope. Then I breathe a sigh of relief as I realize it's just junk mail. Phew...

Good luck to everyone who has yet to hear back, and congrats to those of you who are in already.

Just a heads up, my acceptance came by e-mail attachment.

TU09, I'll be there in the fall, and I cannot wait!

Oh that's unexpected - I thought Columbia explicitly said they only send out acceptances by snail mail. Sneaky sneaky! Has everyone who's been accepted to Columbia on this forum so far gotten their decision by e-mail, or is it a case by case basis deal?

Congrats! Although, I haven't been too nervous since I've been in the mentality that it's too early to hear from CLS. Now, each day that I don't receive a decision I'll die a little more inside.

Yeah I know what you mean. Did you apply ED too? If so, the moment of truth is coming soon...this week I think! Good luck!

I heard CLS routinely asks for transcripts to be updated with the most recent grades before sending out decisions. Any truth to this?

Guys and girls, I share your pain. Still waiting on my Columbia ED fate.

If I have one bit of advice, it's: DO NOT GET AN iPHONE AND IF YOU HAVE ONE DO NOT SET UP EMAIL ON IT.

I literally check my email every 10 minutes. It is neither healthy nor reasonable...

Hahaha I do the exact same thing - and I did this on the day our LSAT scores were supposed to come out as well. NOT healthy.

I must say, though...in all fairness, the iPhone is pretty damn amazing. I was but a boy before I had one. Now, I am a man.

Do we think any acceptances are going out today? If they keep their word about evaluating them in order I probably won't be celebrating but it's nice to see things moving up there.

Hey, to everyone that is wondering about ED decisions, I think I got mine so early b/c I literally applied the first week apps opened up. I think I went complete by the second week of Sept, so I wouldn't worry too much if you didn't hear anything yet. Good luck, hope you're coming to the city too
