Come on Peter, show xfer2013 some love... I never talked any trash about you, even when everyone else was down on you...

Just had a brief chat with Peter. What a guy. Nice and patient, despite my crazed questions.

Haha, I love how I began this Peter thread. The guy's nice, no doubt. And super calm. Kinda the type where his calmness only makes me that much more nervous.

I did get an email from Columbia telling me they would try to expedite my decision so that I can have a downpayment for NYU or not on Friday. No promises though.

I emailed. But I really JUST went complete and my last documents were received Friday PM- so I'm really not expecting much this week unless I'm either an auto-admit or auto-ding.

I went ahead and emailed. Sure would be nice to be at Columbia AND not have to deposit twice...

Stats?

Peter is such a great guy. Really, just a stand up guy. Regardless of if I get into CLS, I feel like I am better person for just having ineteracted with him. I wonder if he would mind if I called him St. Peter?

Top 10% (closer to 5%), T40-60, got a law review invite and a moot court invite on Monday so I sent that in a LOCI, went complete on Tuesday (as in yesterday). No prior work experience.


Damn. Went complete too yesterday and silence today. Not a great sign. Top 1% at same school ranked. LR invite as well. PWE.

Psach, I'm in the same boat as you. They seem to be coming one at a time with a significant amoutn of time in between. 4:30 PM in NYC, still a chance for us.

I'm sure Peter has a terrific family to match his wonderful self and needs to go home to them. He'll be back up at the office bright and early to send out out our acceptances. Hopefully he will enjoy a relaxing evening at home.

You guys are hilarious. I feel like Peter is the eqiuvalent of the Claw in the Toy Story movie.

Congrats to all those accepted!

Still happy to answer anyone's questions (here or in a private message). I transferred into CLS last year.

Oh wise and powerful Peter. Grace us with some acceptances. And if not, leave our e-mail inbox free of dings.

Today's silence is deafening. I'm waiting until the last minute to decide whether to deposit elsewhere, with a deadline of today for full OCI participation. Complete since June so was hoping for something...
