Columbia Class of 2016

Postby starrydreamz3 » Thu Sep 27, 2012 10:22 pm

Anyone else out there? I'm a deferral from the 2010/2011 cycle so I've been waiting a while for this thread!

Some pictures to get everyone excited!

And the late night walks back from the library won't be too bad...

Finally joining you in here.

Oddly enough, my first impulse was to try to find a sweatshirt online... I'm out of luck, nothing that explicitly has CLS on it. Anyone find anything?

Haha awesome man, congrats! Excited for you!

So I did a little searching around on apparel, and this site has a shirt and a sweatshirt...
http://www.ivysport.com/columbia-university-store
The problem is, there's only XXL sweatshirts left, and no shirts.

I sent them an email through their contact form, and he says it's because demand's been really slow, doesn't know when they'll restock.

If you could, contact them here, please!

--LinkRemoved--

And let them know a couple people'd be down to buy some Columbia Law merchandise!

I think we just have to persuade him, shouldn't be hard to get more!

And here's the hoodie and shirt in question:

Still can't believe I got in! I actually live in Morningside Heights, so might drop by soon to pick up some CLS gear.

Congrats and welcome! I assume you're ED so we'll definitely be classmates!

And for the columbia law hoodies, I found that site 2 years ago and they still haven't restocked! =/ I'll email him though to try to show interest.

They are the two main libraries on Columbia's campus on opposite sides of the main lawn. I forget what they're called, obviously I was not paying too much attention on the campus tour. =P

Looking forward to meeting some of you at one of the admitted students' weekends, some few months from now.

I put in a word at the clothing site too, I mentioned I'd buy a couple for my family too, haha.

The 2d picture is of Low Memorial "Library" (it's really just an administrative building now), the 3d picture is of Butler Library, which is the main undergraduate library.

Feel free to drop into the Columbia 1L Question thread if you guys have any questions about the school, area, classes, etc: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=176925

Thanks Bronck! Am looking forward to that mail packet from the school - how soon do you guys think we should expect to see financial aid materials/mailings?

IIRC, [non-Butler/Hamilton] scholarship/aid comes fairly late, viz., late March or early April. They sent little goodies in the mail throughout, but I can't recall a timeline for those.

NICE, dude. I know you were waiting a long time.

I think I heard either the beginning or end of March (depending on which one you choose), I was talking to a current 1L around Christmas and that's what she seemed to remember. Not guaranteed but hopefully that gives you an idea, give or take a week.

Anyone know when we should receive more info at all, beyond the acceptance letter?

I was under the impression that we get some sort of packet in February on financial aid and stuff like that (I can't remember where I read that though. so not 100% sure if this is true).

Also, for those of you who're looking to buy a hoodie, the Columbia book store was having a 25% off sale last week! I got mine for 35 bucks. :D

Nicely done, I'll admit I'm a little bit envious! I saw a grey one with basic block print, but I'm hoping that navy one with the crown logo (found earlier in this thread) comes back. Saving up for that plus a suit should the need ever arise!

Slightly random, but I heard CLS gives us a free hoodie too, although I don't know if that's at the ASW or upon school actually starting.

During ASW, we got a nice CLS t-shirt, but no hoodie.

During orientation, we got a CLS backpack and an I (crown) CLS t-shirt. Maybe they vary it year-to-year, but I'm not sure.

I've been working at an investment bank downtown for the last 2 years. Making connections and all that jazz. =P

J90, I'm pretty sure I saw the hoodie you're referring to (grey with crown logo) on sale when I dropped into the store last week. I dropped by the CU bookstore again last night to pick up something to read, and the hoodies are no longer on sale. :(

Haha aw no problem! Glad you found something good though, Sampaguita. School's 8 months away and I'm still pretty proud. :)

Getting notice of acceptance was a fantastic moment. I'm so excited to go visit New York and explore later this spring.

Congrats everyone!

Ok so I emailed too today, mentioned I'd buy 4 myself (my parents and sister want one) and that I knew of others that would buy a t-shirt, and the response I got was:

Hello [ ]
We are hoping to restock the law tee by the end of January or early February.


So, good news!
