How long have you been there? They can take a while.


Early November. I had retook the LSAT in December. Not sure if they hold off on saying an app is complete until they have all scores.


Just as an FYI, I was in a similar boat in regards to the December LSAT (retake, already had score on file) and submit time, but my file did go complete.


Thanks! Just checked and now I am finally complete. :D

Finally complete! Submitted 12/2 but needed a Dean's Letter that wasn't submitted until mid-December. Hoping for the best!

Do they email you when you go complete?

Yes, I got an email. However I think I got the email about 6 days after the status checker had started showing me as complete.

I submitted my app in early December, and my status checker shows green checkmarks beside each component, but I'm still completion pending! Should I be worried? Is anyone else in a similar boat?

I was completion pending from pre-thanksgiving until yesterday lol. Did you need to submit a dean's cert? If so that may be what's holding up your app

I just received a fee waiver in my email this morning. For those who have been admitted, did you write a Why Columbia essay or something similar for the Supplementary Essay part? I wasn't even considering Columbia but with the waiver it's hard not to throw an application in the mix.

I was completion pending for three weeks, and it wasn't over the break. I wouldn't worry about it, as long as you're sure you've turned in everything you have to (I think some things, like Dean's Cert, aren't on the list on the status checker.)

Yep-early December here, so I've also been waiting a month (though to be fair, two of those weeks were over the holidays). I didn't need to submit a Dean's Certificate (unless I missed something and everyone was supposed to submit one...).

Generally very few people write a WhyX for T6 schools, as, well, you don't need to justify why you want to go to such a great school.

Were there any components that came in late? I had a letter of recommendation ship out on the 24th of December... not counting the closed days, it's been about 8 or 9 days gince they received my last component (not sure if transcript update might slow that even more). Seeing that Columbia tells us to expect at least two weeks between last component and completion, it might well be the end of January or February before my app even reaches completion :x

So you never know.

Thanks everyone for all your answers! I don't think I needed to submit a Dean's Certification...but just to double check, that's only if you have some kind of disciplinary charge against you, right? I'm probably just being antsy and impatient, it's true that a lot of that time was spent on holiday like you guys were saying haha.

Checking in. I just went completer on 1/6. Based on the graph is it fair to assume that if admitted I will hear by 4th week of January.

You could definitely be admitted after the first round of acceptances, but getting accepted by the end of Jan is likely.

How did you get that? Do you mean the graph in OP? Or there's another graph?
