Congratulations! With those #s though, you had nothing to worry about, imo.

Around 14 Feb, they started releasing email acceptances...I think a bunch of us called in that day, as well as a bunch of other angry people, most likely.

There were strict-VCE people as late as 15 Feb postmark, but I think everybody afterward has gotten an email.


Most of the emails have come through during normal business hours, but we have at least one report of a Saturday evening email...


I'm guessing this is to allow more people to come to ASP #2? Why even bother doing VCE-only acceptances earlier in the cycle?? x.x

NOT FORGOTTEN! Admit email! I got into COLUMBIA! I want to scream, but I'm in a class about blues. I sort of just want to walk out.

Historically, I think this is an anomaly. Who knows what the reasoning is, but I don't think it was anything planned.

Does anyone know how scholly info works? If they don't say anything in the initial email, does it mean sticker? I'm not expecting to get $, but just want to be sure for my own peace of mind!

Oh yeah! I feel like I should post stats.

3.78 LSDAS.
155 (LSAT 1)
162 (LSAT 2)

URM (even so, I think that's pretty damn amazing).

No merit aid, but finaid is still available obviously.

Looks like a wave of URM acceptances today -- anyone get accepted that *isn't* a URM?

Ninja edit: Oh yeah, CONGRATS!

Yeah, I was at work, so I sneaked out to an empty warehouse and did my victory dance. Fat bald white guy dancing = Youtube gold. Luckily I wasn't busted.

Okay, I hope someone can help me with this - the Columbia finaid office says that they work only with need. The admissions office handles merit aid, but after you're accepted, there is no further offer of merit aid. So if I want to bargain using other acceptances/scholarships/incriminating information, which office would I contact? And do I have to wait to contact them until May, when they finally get to me in the need based pile?

I applied 2/2 and have yet to hear anything. I'm getting a little nervous now that other late applicants are hearing back. :?

Yeah, I'm 1/4 here. I'm thinking about sending off a LOCI. Not sure it'll do much good though.
