Yup. I learned a little about the Columbia overall, but for applications it was mostly stuff already covered by TLS. I'm still glad I went though. Additionally, some of the questions asked towards the end, especially revolving around character and fitness had me holding back laughter.
What kind of questions were people asking?
What kind of issues must be disclosed?
Do I have to disclose anything that wasn't a felony (paraphrasing)?
Do I have to disclose all of my speeding tickets?
What if I can't remember all of my speeding tickets in the past 20+ years?
Some of these questions had the applicant asking follow ups.
There were also about 7 different questions about letters of recommendation. Danielle's initial explanation, plus one or two other questions seemed sufficient to me.
Maybe it's just from my experience on TLS, but I would feel a bit strange asking a school like Columbia questions that I could find out with a quick google search. I don't really know any non-TLS law students or applicants though, so my perception is probably very skewed.
