A rejection letter via snail mail, which wraps my cycle up. Good luck to those still waiting.

Are people expecting letters even though their status checkers haven't changed? Is that what CLS has been doing?

That appears to be what they're doing at least. All the CLS status checker seemed to indicate was complete vs. incomplete. I don't think it indicated decisions made even for people that got accepted.

As I posted yesterday, I've been rejected by CLS. My status checker still just indicates 'Complete.' ...Except now it indicates that they do not have my transcript or dean's certification letters, neither of which appeared at all on the status check before my rejection (I specifically called to ask about that a week ago and was told they couldn't tell me over the phone because they weren't finished processing documents...go figure).

Stanford people - What cut-off date are you thinking? I'm setting a soft deadline of Wednesday for myself. By then, I really need to sign on an apartment in Chicago and commit.

Apparently Stanford and CLS are competing for the 'most disorganized and/or torpid admissions office' crown. It could be a bloody fight.

I'm not sure that's fair. It seems both SLS and CLS have made offers to those they want and are keeping a couple of people in reserve just in case there's unexpectedly low matriculation. The one thing that's odd is that they do not seem to officially be calling it a 'wait list,' rather pretending everyone is still 'under review.'

Snail mail rejection from Columbia. Now I can officially call myself an NYU law student! It was a win win situation.

+1. I would take NYU in a heartbeat.

I'm wondering if my letter just got lost in the mail :lol:. But I don't want to call and ask on Monday because they'll probably just send me that .pdf rejection letter. I bet the class is full.

ETA: I don't have the weird documents things that the poster above reported.

For those who's status changed to decision letter sent at NYU yesterday, was anyone able to log into the admitted students site? I can't :(

I haven't heard either way from Columbia either. Thought I might see a letter today, but guess I'm in the shrinking group who are either still alive or have slow mail.

It's hard to predict a cut-off date. The lady I spoke to at the admissions office (who's very nice, btw) said that in previous years they've sent offers up until the end of August.

My view is that since (at least) four of us here are still UR there, there must be many more out there as well, since we are just a limited sample. But I may be underestimating TLS... maybe everybody that has a chance at SLS is a member of TLS???


Make that five - I've been lurking, and am still under review.


I'm also on the soft waitlist (if that's what it is), so make that six. Or five, if you counted mebeSajid in the original count, who updated a decision letter after your post.

I'm pretty sure there are only a couple of us and my guess is it's mostly because of slow mail.

Yeah, but my stats aren't getting me into CLS as compared to the people who were just rejected. Maybe change "slow mail" to "lost mail" :lol:.

If there is one thing that you can say about transferring it's that it's unpredictable, so hold your breath...i have since my complete date in mid-july ;)
