For people who applied to the joint program, are they going to wait for a decision from the business school? LSAT > 75, GPA > median. I received an interview invite for the MBA program but they don't make a decision until next month :evil:


Received same email.

After having already applied and been rejected by the MBA program…way to be on top of thing Columbia. Given the rest of my cycle on both JD and MBA fronts…I have no FUCKING clue how Columbia operates. Like, at all.

Still not complete either...would be really nice if I got an admissions decision + financial aid information before April 21st, seeing as how that's the deadline for me to accept or reject NYU's scholarship offer. To say nothing about hearing back before their last ASW -____-

They start rolling out very quickly by early/mid April to accommodate competing scholarships. NYU will also grant you an extra week of float if you ask for it in advance and explain why - I had to do this while waiting on CLS grant decisions last year.

Also remember, you don't have to withdraw from schools you havent heard from/are held at when you accept another offer. While it sucks to lose one seat deposit, its a drop in the barrel in the grand scheme and helps with negotiations (although DON'T make multiple deposits coterminously).

Truckstop, can you provide a source for this?

With so few clinics, it seems likely to me that CLS would limit each student to one semester-long clinic. Perhaps the goal is to allow as many students as possible the opportunity to participate?


I went to the admitted student days last week, and the question was asked at the clinic session. I think it's difficult to get a second one, but you're not limited by an actual rule about the number of clinics you can do.

Sorry about the hold, congrats on Harvard!

I feel like this ties to the earlier discussion re. hold strategy, using holds as a way to weed out those who will likely go to HYS but may not have the stats for a named scholarship.


This worries me so much. As someone who has potentially YP worthy stats (strong emphasis on potentially because I really don't believe my numbers should be worthy of YP but Columbia's actions this cycle indicate otherwise) who doesn't have a HYS acceptance, I really hope I don't fall through the cracks.

Please Columbia, why don't you love me as much as I love you? :?


+1 February LSAT re-taker here. Looking more and more like I'm going have to ultimately sit out this cycle.

Well, first you should wait for an award from Columbia, right? I thought they weren't going out until April. But yeah while it would be great to email someone specific in Admissions, I don't think Dean Iwerbon's or anyone else's email address is available freely (not even in the Admitted Students Handbook :( ). I'd shoot it off to the general admissions email. Or who knows, maybe the award will come with some additional details / contact info.

If you know a specific person's name in the admissions office, Columbia's website has a searchable directory and you can pull their email from that...

Adcomm stalking 101.

There is no normal.


+1 :lol: THIS.

This is true. I'm not sure what Columbia is up to this cycle. I am also not sure that they know what they're up to.

But to answer your question, PhenomenalWomen, it is normal to take 4-6 weeks (or longer) to go complete at Columbia.


Thanks. I was thrown off a bit from the What to Expect When You're Expecting thread, as it indicates that Columbia takes only a couple of weeks to go complete. I suppose that all bets are off this late in the cycle.

When do we think the first Holds will hear back? I can't imagine that they'd wait until April. Do we think a trip up to Morningside could help at all for like a class visit or something?

I really don't feel like waiting until April at this point, especially after my nice LOCI.

I'd be pretty surprised if any of us heard before April, unfortunately. From Waitlists to Cornell's Reserve to Duke's PR, it looks like everything is being delayed until after they get through the remaining applications.
