I'm getting nervous because Columbia's EIP is July 31 - Aug 3 and I'm pretty sure bidding has ended.

Then shouldn't this make your decision really easy? If you can't do EIW/OCI/EIP/EIEIO, then what's the point?

I mean there are definitely other reasons to transfer. Greater opportunity for clerkships, keep doors open for other prestigious jobs (Big Fed/AUSA).

Because I really want to go to Columbia and I talked to the Admissions Office and they said that transfers will still be able to participate in EIP

I mean just trying to be helpful.

Given how soon EIW is probably trying to speed up turnaround times.

For what it’s worth, T2 top 5%

I got an email at 4:14 from the "Office of the University Registrar for Columbia University" that was like a welcome new students email. I immediately called the JD Admissions office to verify and they said that this was a glitch. :roll:


Did you hear back? I got that email five days ago and haven't heard.

Sorry to hear that :/. Still haven't heard anything and I kind of feel like I'm losing my mind at this point :? I just want to be able to make firm decisions because there's only a month left.

Transfer orientation is this Friday, 7/27. Admissions Office rep just said they are making "every effort" to have all decisions out before then. Good luck!
