Umm, the quote got messed up somewhere. I'm not the one that said the "close eye" thing.

2011-12, Columbia accepted 216 people and 7 off of the wait list (according to LSN)
2012-13, Columbia accepted 195 people and 6 off of the wait list
2013-14, Columbia has accepted 172 people

All LSN caveats that you can think of apply to this data. It's plain that the class is nearly full. ¿There are probably between 30 and 50 spots?

edit: I suck at spelling...


Update to this data:
2013-14, Columbia has accepted 181 people.

Blargh. And we still haven't had any held candidates hear back yet?

I would not have guessed that CLS would take this long to leak a few acceptances to hold candidates. I'm truly surprised.

I'm still waiting to be complete. I just consider it a de facto hold status.

Hmmm. That sucks bravo. I hope they get back to you soon :?

I realize that I should chill out and just enjoy my final days at Divinity School. I don't know if the next three years will be so sweet.

Admissions Office is probably sitting on a beach sipping cocktails. Someone just spoke up, "Hey...did we forget to do something?"

If you go to Divinity School, can you pray to all of the gods for us? I'm sure that between Jesus, Buddha and Vishnu we can get some movement here.

You're not officially with the rest of us until you get an email saying you've been held. I'd wish you luck but.. uh, you don't really want that.

Where is the info on how many people they have accepted this year coming from? If only 181 people have been accepted, then theres still around 184 spots left. No?

no this is LSN data, so we should expect roughly 20 more users on LSN to get accepted.

From page 12 of this thread:

This is only LSN data, but it should be reliable enough for a general rule. Columbia waitlists many, many applicants (41.7% of all applicants averaged over the past 3 cycles), and of those, 3.2% were admitted. From the LSN data, that's 15 waitlist->admit over the past 3 years. Now the base number (15) is obviously a subset of the true number, but % is probably closer to truth, assuming LSN possesses a reliable sampling of applicants.


Not to be harsh, but I think a reality-check is healthy at this point in the game. If any of us get waitlisted, I think it would be prudent to not hold up your life hoping for Columbia to want you back. Ride the waitlist if your circumstances allow it, but make other plans and expect to have to keep them.

I would hope no one is naive enough to go into April without starting to make plans/decisions based on current options.

I wouldn't discount the powers of naivete and optimism. The institution of law school seems to feed off of them.
