Thank you - and this is not one of my two friends, based on those stats, so we now know of at least three accepted to CLS last week.

No problem! On an unrelated note, do you know when Harvard and Stanford will be issuing decisions? I've been worried about being stuck with multiple seat deposits.

Also congratulations! Sorry, I thought I included that in my last post--meant to!

In transfer season 2015 (two years ago), I heard from Harvard mid-July, after applying pretty close to when the application was made available. So...unfortunately it's possible you could be stuck with multiple seat deposits... :/ But probably worth it in this case if you're for sure wanting to transfer and would go to Columbia if H/S say no.

Congrats! May I ask what your stats were, including your school's rank?

GPA 3.82, School rank 30-50, submitted through LSAC on June 13th and got an email the following day from CLS that the initial components had been received. Took a week more to get everything else in and get it marked complete. Don't rely on the status checker online, you should keep calling and email to follow up if you think they should have an application component based on the time it was sent in.
