Admitted via email, just now. I was originally held in mid-March and submitted a LOCI/essay in late March.

Thanks! I think it's still sinking in. Obviously it is a game-changer for me. Hoping to get some $ at least to make a decision.

In case anyone is wondering about demographics here, I'm a splitter for Columbia (173/3.6x).

I wasn't expecting to get this email today! For all of you in this thread, keep the faith - good news is right around the corner. :D

I haven't been held or contacted for any reason. I haven't sent in a LOCI. But if they are practicing YP this cycle it couldn't hurt you to express your strong interest in CLS. That is, assuming, you are strongly interested in CLS.

WLed at NYU today which means I've got one last shot to stay in New York. Come onnnnn Columbia!

Are you at 75ths and waiting? Would you actually attend CLS or would you just go to H anyway? If you really do want to stay in New York over cambridge and you have the numbers, seriously, tell them - they will want you. Send an email or call up admissions and ask them, because there's no reason for them to take a hit to their yield this late in the game unless you're serious.

Random question to satisfy my curiosity: Do any of you know if schools get the detailed response report (I think that's what it's called) or just the LSAT scores?

My understanding was that they could reference the response form and look at your essay.

Here's the language from their website. Looks like they might not get your answer sheet:

Your CAS Law School Report includes
an academic summary report;
LSAT score(s) and writing sample(s);
all undergraduate, graduate, and law/professional school transcripts;
letters of recommendation/evaluations, if applicable; and
other relevant information, such as prior matriculation.
