I can officially say that I'm a "current" 1L at CLS now. Just wrapped up the first day of orientation, I'll be available here and there throughout the cycle if anyone has questions. Good luck to everyone! :)

Also a word of advice - don't follow every single post and trend on this website, it's bad for your health. Speaking from experience. :lol:

Checking in! LSN makes this sound like a definite WL for me, but you never know what could happen once you get there, right?

Checking in. This school looks AWESOME. Though can someone explain why this is the most stressful law school of them all?? Somebody's post earlier stated that and nobody challenged it, haha, so I'm just curious

Well, I'll set it up like an NYU v Columbia feel. I have the NYU bias, but the Village, and in particular the area around the law school, are amazing. You have Wash Sq Park, some great restaurants and nightlife, and it is extremely safe. Columbia is a different feel because the Village draws the hipsters and the tourists, but the UWS is not a bad place to live either. I think you will find that at either NYU or Columbia a lot of the students live a distance away, possibly in pursuit of cheaper neighborhoods or whatever.

The one thing anyone will tell you is to visit the schools - the neighborhoods, and likely the students, have different vibes. Considering how close these schools are in the rankings (assuming you care about rankings), it should be a matter of financial aid, aspirations, and personal preference.


this is useful, thanks

Checking in! Retaking the LSAT in October and Columbia is my top choice. Can't wait to see how this shapes up.

Also, Jaqen, love the icon...I'm eagerly awaiting Winds of Winter. :)

Cof2016 applicant checking in as well. I visited CLS a few weekends ago on a day trip to NYC. While not exactly breathtaking from the outside, I got a chance to explore the law school building and it's quite nice. And it goes without saying that the campus overall is incredible. As of right now I would be thrilled to attend in fall 2013.

Is it ever worth it to write a Why Columbia? Anyone attaching one? Maybe saving one in the event of WL?

Checking in. Let's hope less folks taking the LSAT this year makes for a great cycle for all of us.
