Is anyone else beginning to wonder if CLS is trimming its transfer class size this year?

Accepted via E-Mail, 3:05 PM. UR 7/9/12. Top 8% at a low T2, PWE (CPA), Law Review. @NJFast07, thanks for the advice to provide a LOCI. I did the same, provided an update for getting into Law Review etc. and got a decision 1 hour later (whether the LOCI helped or if they made their decision before that, I have no answer). PS I'm withdrawing from NYU if that helps.

congrats man. you must have been nice to Peter.



This is ridiculous for me already. I'm about to pay my nyu deposit. Is there way for me to call a dean and get around Peter?

Congrats man! We'll never know what ultimately tipped them, but glad it worked out!

P.S. still pulling for everyone still waiting in this thread!

p.p.s. does anyone have advice on housing? Columbia's on campus stuff is full and I'm waiting for access to their off-campus listings.

Did you email the LOCI? Maybe it was the case that they accepted you already and the LOCI just sped things up.

Indeed, I E-Mailed the LOCI at 2:18 PM. Whether it expedited an already-made decision or was a "put me over the top" item is up to speculation.

Did you just email it to the admissions email? Address it to Peter?

I called. Couldn't tell me anything.

No decision for me = probably reject at this point.

No mention of The Peter. I simply sent an inquiry to the general CLS admissions E-Mail address this morning ("Hey, do you take LOCI's? Should I send it via E-Mail?"), then when they said they accept such documents via E-Mail, I E-Mailed.

Just an update on the whole LOCI thing, if any of you still care: I received an E-Mail today saying "Thank you, we will add this letter to your file." Considering I already got my decision yesterday, it seems unlikely that the LOCI had much to do about anything. Nonetheless, to those still waiting I urge you to write one as long as you can put in some legitimate additional substance.

I wish Columbia emailed rejects like everybody else. This snail mail thing is ridiculous. For all I know, my rejected was sent days ago and I have been left to obsess over my email

No movement today, eh? The heat may have gotten to Peter.

I don't feel like reading through the 2012 thread again, but my impression is that there was a lot more movement in that thread. Can anyone confirm this?

If so, maybe we're on the verge of some big movement... people are depositing and moving and stuff... can't be much longer.

If you are worried about that, you can call and ask if a decision was rendered for you. I did that yesterday.

Forgot to post yesterday, but samesies.

Should get some decisions this week right? Deadline deposit is Monday and it seems a bunch of people are withdrawing.

Yeah I assume we get decision Monday.

Not sure how many people got complete emails and are still waiting. It seems going complete is usually followed by a quick decision--- accurate?

Damn, well there goes that.

I can't imagine there are many more admits. Their EIW is really soon.
