I would imagine you're probably in better shape than I am. My numbers are not enough to make USC admit me without a second committee review, so I'm guessing Cr1-FR = ding for me. That wouldn't be the end of the world. It'd be hard to get used to rooting for USC.

What's the longest time someone here has been in Final Review? Is there an average time?

I've been stuck in FR for almost 3 weeks now after going through CR1 and CR2 over the course of 3 months...

Bumping this.


Double bump seems eerily quiet on this front.


yeah i'm really nervous right now. anyone have any insight?



Supposedly, some money should free up after the 4/15 scholarship deadline. I sent an email to financial aid cc'ing admissions a couple of days ago and haven't received any response, not even an auto-response. This makes me a little nervous because when I asked financial aid initially after being accepted how long it would take before a scholarship decision is reached, I received a response a few hours later.

Hopefully this doesn't mean I am waiting for another month before anything else happens, as the last two updates did. :|

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO fer real, no sarcasm, x my <3, I'm being 100th percentile real here, like, let's put it this way: when I took the LSAT in December, I made a few goofy comments b4 the test started (like when the proctor asked if any1 had questions, I had a few, but apparently, they were humorous :D), and it seemed like a lotta people in the room laughed, and some people told me at the break that it made them feel more relaxed about the whole situation, and your remarx are having a similar effect on me now :D Like, it's cik seeing some decent humor in this thread :D :) <3

Are these waitlists via e-mail or snail mail? anyone else hear about acceptance/WL originally through snail mail?

Sorry to hear about all the waitlists. I guess it's good that they're making decisions faster now.

wow. that's crazy. they're probably looking at your stats and thinking "she/he is already made up her mind on Columbia so why waste time?"
