Dear Admitted Student,
Congratulations on your admission to Columbia Law School. Recently it has come to our attention that login information to the Admitted Student Website has been made public by one of our admitted students. Therefore, we must change the passcode in order to limit access to admitted students only.
We intend to email the new passcode to you in short order. We apologize for the inconvenience and ask that you refrain from sharing, blogging or otherwise publicizing this proprietary information.

They aren't unadmitting anyone. They aren't rendering new judgements. They are changing the PW. Breathe.
This makes me like Columbia a lot more. I think what the HBS applicants did was significantly more shady, but, still, they could've handled it more harshly, which I don't think is called for. I'm glad they were reasonable about it.
Also this is awesome for all the people that actually are in because they'll get an email to confirm soon!
