did you submit a LOCI? i'd like to write one but i really have nothing to write other than I LOVE YOU PLEASE LOVE ME BACK THANK YOU.

doesnt LOCI usually include some recent developments in your academics/work, awards and such? i've got nothing new :(



I have not. I am thinking I may soon especially if I don't hear by Friday.

Are any other of the deferred EDs URMs?

i didn't submit an LOCI after i get held. i actually submitted one back in january before i had even heard anything back from them. i basically told them i had heard from the majority of the other schools i had applied to, but not from columbia, which was my top choice for xyz reasons. i did send them a simple email about a month ago, telling them that i was still interested in attending columbia law and referenced that LOCI.

Are any other of the deferred EDs URMs?


I sent one in a few weeks ago - it read more like a Why CLS? essay, but I've also been updating them with recent publications and other developments since applying in November. I also had a 5th LOR mailed in. I'm a nonwhite LGBT applicant, but not a traditional URM, and like everyone, I'd like to believe I have "strong softs."

when you sent in your fifth LOR did the status checker update by switching out the names of one of your original four? I originally found it odd but then just figured it wasn't worth calling/obsessing over.

No my status checker never updated with my fifth LOR, which is why I called to confirm that they received it.

Congrats! Make sure you've submitted the Financial Aid Questionnaire, as well. I believe it's only available once you've been accepted but then you can access the form through the admitted students website.
