In other words I shouldn't use this as an opening to write a "why columbia" right?

I'm pretty sure that I should just not add anything based on the wording but I thought i'd get TLS collective wisdom first.


I wrote a Why Columbia but honestly I'm sure it doesn't matter either way

It has been a month now and my app still isn't complete. I e-mailed admissions last week and got a generic "completion is pending blah blah" response. Would it be advisable to give them a call?

I sent my app in mid September and I just got my application complete email yesterday. I think they're starting to get around to it. maybe wait one more week until you call

Just make sure your lsac profiles allows "CRS" school research (something like ths... Candidate Referral Service) :) schools usually target applicants within their lsat and gpa range. I got a lot of waivers but none from Columbia.

Don't. (Sorry to drop in 0Ls.) I'm enjoying my 1L experience here (as much as one can), but I think EDing to Columbia would almost always be the wrong choice. If you're absolutely certain you wouldn't go anywhere else or you know you wouldn't go to NYU, it might make sense. Otherwise, you're giving away your right to bargain for minimal gain.

I've also been on the edge of EDing (but leaning towards not) - has it even been proven that ED for Columbia gives a noticeable boost?

Debating whether or not to ED (3.74/173) since a look at LSN shows that area filled with yellow :|

is the consensus on the supplementary essay that it's really just for a DS or an addendum for lsat/gpa with legitimate excuses (i.e. medical).

From the Columbia website : "Some examples include diversity statements, statements of strong interest in Columbia Law School, explanations of undergraduate and/or LSAT performance, etc."

If the report isn't received/processed until after the ED deadline, but the app was submitted through LSAC on time, does that still count as having made the deadline?

The wording from their Early Decision Contract (downloadable here):
If you have chosen to apply as an Early Decision candidate, please complete this form and submit it to LSAC with all other required application materials no later than November 15.

So it looks like it will count as long as it was submitted by then.

Postby believeit » Mon Nov 05, 2012 12:00 pm

Penn. CLS would be a waste of an ED, although PEnn's probably not happening either.

Almost 6 weeks incomplete now, but I guess I shouldn't call now in light of recent events

Reapplicant? I have the feeling this may be why mine is taking so long. UCLA told me that's what held me up there

Yes I am. You're still waiting on CLS completion also?
