Applied ED, it took a while for them to complete my file. Anyone know when Columbia starts sending out ED results? I know it says early December online, but I thought I read somewhere that some people got their decisions before that.

Last year the first people heard (acceptances) on the first Monday in December. The rest of the ED acceptances/results trickled out the rest of the month.

Edit: What are your numbers, if you don't mind sharing?

I just applied ED as well. With my numbers it's a long shot, but a guy can dream right? (3.47 GPA, 173 LSAT)

I don't think it's that much of a long shot. I'm sure schools will be collecting high LSATs now more than ever.

Also, all of these high-LSAT EDers make me feel good about my high gpa/atrocious LSAT 8)

Didn't seem to last cycle. Many of the first-day admits went complete right around the deadline (11/15).

Went LSAC complete early last week...still no word from Columbia on a status checker. Does it normally take this long?

Believe this was covered a few pages back and maybe in the OP, but Columbia does their own status checker. You can sign up for it here:

https://web.law.columbia.edu/admissions ... lumbia-law

It took 2 weeks for me to go complete, just as a reference point

Also, there seems to be a lag between when the status checker goes complete and when you actually get the email confirming the completion.

i'm wondering if there's also a lag time between going lsac complete and columbia acknowledging that they've received an application. I know the site says it can take up to two weeks to process and display new applications, so have ppl found this to be the case?

That would seem to be the case, as I submitted early last week and Columbia has not yet acknowledged it per their status checker.

Checking in for my top choice! Anyone know whether or not it's worth it to write a Why Columbia essay? I'm happy to do it, but I don't want to waste my time if they historically have not helped. Thanks!
