I'm thinking it's too optimistic. But I wouldn't mind a surprise.

Do they call/email ALL ED applicants? If anyone has any idea? Jw if it's possible that the decision has been mailed already? (could be)

I'm almost scared to post this, because I feel like it must either be a mistake or a dream, but... IN! (Just got the e-mail in the last hour or so.)

I received the admit email today near 1PM, and I am still in disbelief. I was originally scoring in the upper 140s on my LSATs when I first thought of applying to law school, so Columbia seemed impossible. Now I'm living the dream.

Anyway, if this helps anyone

ED
LSAT and GPA at C\O 2016 medians
Submitted 9/1
Complete on 9/10
Nervous wreck from 9/10 to 12/23

Good luck to everyone.

Congrats! And what an amazing jump in LSAT! You should be over in "What are my Chances" telling your story to some of those people settling way below their potential.

Congratulations to all of the ED applicants who got in today!
Any idea how many RD people have heard? Rd gets snail mail not email, right?

Wait. RD people have heard something? How did I miss this? I thought none of us would hear back before January. Cue massive panic attack and constant checking of the mailbox. :shock:

I was ED; sorry for not mentioning that sooner. Hope I didn't give anyone any panic attacks.

Now I'm scared. Have a feeling I'm in the "we can't send deferrals right before Christmas" group.

Question about RD snail mail method. Will the status checker at least say something like "decision mailed"? I'm outside the country and am having my mail checked by someone else. I'd at least like to know when to tell them to RUN TO THE GODDAMN MAILBOX RIGHT NOW.
