I believe they will start waitlisting people very soon via email.

Congrats, man!

I think your nonchalance succeeded in getting everyone else to overlook this post. :)

Meanwhile...

Don't know what I'd do if I get waitlisted. At this point, I'm really hoping my app just happens to be in a pile labeled "Admit: Yes. Scholarship: Undecided." Would be nice if they're just waiting to read all the apps or see if anyone turns down Hamiltons or Butlers. In which case...

IMO you'd only get WL to YP and I feel that it's easy to write a convincing loci that you will definitely attend cls if taken off the WL - if, of course, that's what you want to do. If you're CLS Hammy / But or bust then idk..

No NCE for me.

Also, Wake Forest has the smallest admit packet I have ever come across. I didn't know what it was at first lol.

I got the Brooklyn one. And no Chipotle coupon. :evil:

For a second I thought you meant the Chipotle coupon was in the Brooklyn law envelope and I was freaking about immediately tossing it.

Quick question. Chipotle: bad burritos or the worst burritos?

NCE yesterday in Arizona; postmarked January 31st. ED applicant so I've known for a month. But somehow that didn't make getting the big blue folder any less exciting. :)

Haha sorry for the confusion everyone. I live close to a Chipotle (God bless America) so I occasionally get coupons in the mail. That, and the NYU pizza box, are the only good things to appear in my mailbox this year.

I may have to give up on Columbia. Thinking there might be a NCE for me was a lovely dream.

Also, for the rpg-minded from the lovely gamefest a few pages ago, there is a 50% off sale on Final Fantasy games on PSN. Snap 'em up while they are cheap. I may need to play one since I'm expecting a ding!

Things aren't looking too good right now. I count 69 RD admits on LSN right now, compared with 77 at this time last year. At best, we may see a very small batch of NCEs this week. But after that, the inevitable WL/ding waves will begin :/

CLS continues to admit people throughout Feb and March though? unlike NYU

NCE! postmarked 1/30 (told you... Sandy, that bi*ch). No scholarship info but considering I'm below their LSAT median (171) and non-URM, i did not even expect to get in. With risk of outing myself, I was Columbia UG and have lived in Manhattan ever since - so goes without saying that this holds a special place in my heart

The one thing that is daunting is the idea of 250k of debt, any idea of timeline on non butler/hammy schollys? It seems like the 171/172 high GPA crowd last year got about 25K - any idea how/when we find out about htis


SO HAPPY, dont worry all NCEs will be arriving soon 8)
