Grr. LSN has been down for me and it's making it really difficult to stalk the shit out of you guys, even though I have most of your numbers memorized. Looking for something else to use up my manic energy.

+1 Personally, I've channeled my energy into combating one of my Senator's opposition VAWA. His staff and I are now in an aggressive communication cycle. I ask for an explanation of his position; his staff send me a letter full of fluff; I call and demand something with more substance; his staff send me a letter riddled with factual inaccuracies; I call and request the sources for the "facts" in the letter....still waiting for the response to that one. I must say, it really helps burn the tension from waiting to hear back from law schools :lol:

Just withdrew my app. I decided that I could not bring myself to go to the least transparent of T14 law schools, even if I got accepted. Good luck to all of you, and I hope the rest of the Hamiltons and Butlers go out to TLSers.

PS: If the thread turns back to the discussion of video games, I'll be back

Thanks for withdrawing, but that's sad to hear. I suppose if you have great options, even a sluggish admissions office can be a turn off. Are you still considering three more years at NYU?

Nope. I visited HLS yesterday and fell head over heels in love with it.

In terms of communication throughout the admissions process. Most other schools were very clear about every detail and development whereas I have only ever received one short email from Columbia, with almost no information in it. As was mentioned above, the sluggish office was a bit of a turn-off

Oh well in that case, Berkeley is by far the worst offender for me so far. Still not a peep from Stanford, but Berkeley ≠ Stanford.

Sad to see you go, but I'm sure you'll be happy at Harvard.

Is anyone else having a trouble accessing just about any page on the Columbia site that has to do with admissions or financial aid?

I believe access to these pages is solely given on a need basis

Their website is pretty awful. I went to go find a financial aid form, which the site talked about but provided no download link for. It was in the admitted student's packet, but really?

That's the same one I am filling out right now. I wanted to try to get a downloadable form and fill it out to e-mail it back, but it seems like that's not possible. Guess I'll just have to pop it in the mail. Congrats on that NYU scholarship, by the way.
