Send them.

Yeah I just sent in similar offers as well.
I doubt it will make too much of a difference but it's definitely worth a shot.

Withdrawn. Went complete 1/15 and I've had complete radio silence since then.

Wish you guys the best of luck with your law school endeavors!

I think I might be the last applicant to get an initial decision back from Columbia. Silence since early January!

Placed on reserve today. Was not previously held. Originally thought this was a deferral and I got excited until I realized this is Columbia's version of wait list :(

Posting this here since I know lotsa people who wrote 250s have stopped checking the Yale threads (last one I promise):

All now that cycles are over/basically over consider posting your Yale 250 in the thread on here. This is one of the few areas that TLS lacks in and we should do our part. For those who are staying on the WL at Yale I'll understand not doing so but for the rest of us, consider contributing to the community.

Don't worry, I've got you beat by several months...

But as I said earlier, if no news is good news and we hear good things from Columbia in the near future, it'll all have been more than worth it!

Only 1 more day left till their self-imposed decision deadline. I wonder what takes them so long to reject us :roll:

For those that have an impending deposit deadline (aka tomorrow), and still have no word from Columbia on financial aid, any thoughts on how you are going to proceed?

Did you call and tell them about the deadline? I'd been panicking all week about it, but they came through this morning. It seems like they're churning the last of them out today?
