I hope you told them how excited you were on the phone. I'd love to be the Admissions person who calls.

I'm sorry that my information may or not have been accurate, but in my defense:

a) the CLS has kept in the dark its process for transfers bidding after late acceptances, b) It seems congruent with common sense that, the closer to the date of EIP one is accepted, the farther one is away gaining premium interview spots (I think another round of bids are due at noon tomorrow...anyone accepted today?), c) CLS has all around treated its transfer applicants like crap, see this tread,

and d) my complaint garnered a CLS admissions officer post:
hofman777 wrote:As a current student at CLS I know that transfers get interviews with top firms and offers at top firms (including Simpson Thacher and Boies Schiller) and I would be astounded if Columbia were to do as the person above suggested. The more likely scenario is that they save a certain number of spots for transfers that, if they aren't taken, are released to the general student populous wither Wednesday at noon when people can add interviews or at EIP where they have an add process as well.

(see tone, post history, etc.)

Further, RE:
kritarch wrote: I know a girl who transferred to CLS on the 3rd of August last year who received offers (that obviously also means interviews) from all but two V10 firms. Career services will get any transfer who is admitted after today at least 10 interviews, and more if prodded and asked, and with the very best firms.


The average NYU transfer gets 20-25 interviews. If the average CLS transfer gets “at least 10 interviews,” then that’s less promising than NYU. (Again, to be fair, I’m working with little information. Thanks to CLS.)

i'm definitely an underdog...which is why i'm surprised to still be in the race (unless my application just fell off someone's desk). ~50% at top-20 school. wish i knew what they were thinking so i could figure out my apartment situation...

what are yours?

Also somewhat an underdog....around top 10 percent at T30 school....but soft factors, I feel, are strong. Do you know if they are still handing out acceptances?

Sorry...I'm worried that calling them may backfire. I think I'm just going to wait it out.

In other words, slow mail is slow :lol:. I also think I'm out at NYU since someone with my UR date got in yesterday.
But I'm happy with the MVP tier and as far as I know, that's the highest anyone from my school cracked anyway.
