Lol, I know people in our future profession can be cruel but that would just be a jerk move. The letters sent this week include a small insert that says "Update...Due to unforeseen circumstances, we have changed the passcode for the Admitted Student Website." As I don't think this insert has been mentioned in this thread yet, maybe someone who received the letter this week can confirm.


Touché. You sound like an interesting individual. Are you going to HYS?

People who get 180s by studying the LSAT pamphlet are cancer-curers with PhDs from MIT. I imagine it's 4.2ish.

TBD. It really makes you reconsider your decision-making process when someone says they're offering you $169,000 in free money. Going to do some ASWs and see how it plays out.

Good luck all! There are more acceptances to come.

I don't care enough about the Harvard name to turn down $169,000 at a T6. In fact, I wouldn't want to hire a lawyer who picked HYS over that. But again, that's just my own sense of things. These are champaign problems. Cheers!

Columbia is DEFINITELY sending multiple batches, so I'm sure that all you super qualified TLSers who didn't get in last week will be hearing happy news soon. Good luck all!!

ETA: And the Voldemort thing absolutely positively did not work for me last week either.



This (Voldemort) gives me hope

Does anyone have stats on the number of people admitted off of the Reserve List each year?

I know it is a small number, but just curious if that means zero people, or ten people...

Someone should make a reserve thread. I'll need support through this long, terrifying ordeal.

No vomit in the mail today. I did get a new Rolleicord though. Hooray! Dude sent a bunch of extra accessories too. So much 1958 metal and leather goodness.

I've been complete since October, and doesn't Columbia review in order? This makes no sense at all.
