People have said this continues to be the case, but I haven't seen anyone post yet that they've received an offer with the accept.

Could that mean that the people being interviewed are the Butler/Hamilton candidates, and as such have not received letters yet?

The letter/packet were sent to my current address in Ohio.

The packet is tragically boring except for the obviously quite exciting offer of admission. :-P

I submitted in late September but didn't actually go complete -- due to LOR issues -- until early December...or maybe it was late November. Around there.

It feels so good to get this news I've just been waiting every day to hear from my last few schools and it's been nothing nothing nothing all month. Finally!

Good luck to everyone!


Congrats Wowhio. This is probably great news for me so my excitement for you isn't purely altruistic. :)

Can't speak on how staggered the sending is, but decisions from the first big wave were received over a period of 6-7 days last year. The biggest days were day 4 and 5.


Thanks to you and lawschool22, I won't have a heart attack if I don't see anything this week. Have my fingers crossed though! Good luck everyone and congrats to the admits today.


Last year, letters were dated the 25th and the 29th (a Friday and Tuesday).

So if they follow last year (in terms of days of the week), I would say another batch was sent out today or will be sent out tomorrow.

I don't think that's accurate... LSN shows people receiving letters on the 24th and 25th.

My app went complete about a week ago. What's the usual response time, roughly?

No that stays complete until you die.

It is bad timing to have all of my textbooks coming in from amazon the same time I am waiting for packages from law schools. I keep getting notifications that I have a package for pick up ready in the mailroom. :|

I wish columbia would tell us if the butler/hamilton candidates are the ones being interviewed. I don't think they would say that the interviewees were "randomly selected" though if this were the case. So i'm fingers crossed that scholarships are coming and eventually someone will report one today/tomorrow .

Can someone clarify: were these invites to be interviewed for the scholarships, or actual scholarship offers, in the past? Thx.

I'm now imagining the packet containing $150,000 in cash.

This is the first year they are doing interviews. That's why nobody knows. But i'm going to believe them when they say interviews were random for now

I don't think they are. Crazyrobin didn't get an interview invite...and he's our local rockstar, yeah? Doesn't make sense that he'd get passed over (and would leave little hope for people like me).

This is probably the case, because there are people I would believe are Butler/Hamilton material who have not received interview requests, and the reverse is true as well.

I agree, its just odd, I figured some of these acceptances would have had a Butler at least.

I very much doubt they are for butler/hamilton candidates.

I have an interview later this week and, at least in my case, there is no way I am a butler/hamilton candidate. I'm just hoping they let me in.

Ok good. I'm nowhere near a shoe-in for a scholly, but I like to think there's a chance I might get one (if i get accepted). Good luck to everyone rushing to their mailboxes today!

I was going to slip out of work for a longer "lunch break" to check my mailbox, but my boss had other plans :(
