I feel like we're blowing this whole school atmosphere thing out of proportion IMHO. There will be elitist, hyper-competitive people at any law school, I'd bet. There will also be normal, friendly people at any law school. Even if a given school has a higher proportion of one type of student over the other, I doubt it's too hard to avoid people you clash with and to form a group of folks you like to be around.

It's law school, it's a T6 law school, it's in Manhattan, it has heavy connections to corporate law, and it's not NYU. I'd kind of expect Columbia to be a heated place, compared to Cambridge, New Haven, or even Chicago or Philadelphia.

What if I told you there's a T6 law school in Manhattan that isn't NYU that isn't heated? 30 for 30 presents: Columbia: Ice Cold

Waiittttt can we talk about the girl who listed having "never lived in an inner city before" as a reason she liked Columbia? It's Morningside Heights, not Brownsville. LOL. Plus, who lists living in the hood as a cool, exciting thing? Err.....

Blue envelope still playing hard to get...but seem to be in good company.
Don't get the controversy over the video, they seem fine.

Just found out I was accepted to Columbia! The mail was postmarked 1/24/2014. I was away for few days and my dad had just put the mail so that I did not see it until today. I was rejected from Harvard, waiting from Stanford. Good luck everyone!
