Oh I missed this. Yea, sign me up. Tactics to be used: ED, offering body parts (I hear kidneys are popular), first-born children, black magic. Tactics only to be used in direst situations: retaking.

Definitely applying. Please accept me, CLS gods. *prays*

Oh, and any idea if they give out merit-based fee waivers...?

They do, but they don't like it when you ask them for them. They'll send them out (I don't think they're hidden, but I'm not sure)

Columbia's the only one I know that does a great deal of hidden waivers. Lots of time they're not hidden as well. Dunno why there's a difference. Hidden fee waivers for the mistresses, articulated ones for the wives?

It's confusing because CLS gives waivers to people with high numbers but also to people with very low numbers, probably hoping for more rejection fodder. I wouldn't read into it too much.

Would love to go to Columbia, but wouldn't even apply if they paid me. I won't give them the satisfaction of rejecting me. :D

Ok, I guess if they paid me I'd apply (even if it was in iTunes gift cards like Alabama).

Lololol.

In each of the T14 threads, I'm posting a representative picture of the law school.

I'd still take Columbia over Chi/NYU if equal or comparable.

Lol, now that I've seen what the building looks like, it definitely makes me want to pick NYU over CLS even more ;)
