Based on previous years' threads, I can certainly tell you CONGRATULATIONS!!!! This is amazing news!!! Best of luck with your conversation. Please keep updating us all!!


Thanks! I know this has historically been a good sign via past threads although I did find some who got this email and were later rejected. Hopefully that's not the case with me.

And to answer White Dwarf's question - I did not interview prior to being WL'd. Sent a LOCI afterwards though.

Yeah I saw HT's unfortunate case as well. But hopefully it won't be the same with anyone interviewed this year!

Hey everyone. I finally had some free time to do more LSN analysis. Here are the results:

Essentially, the numbers for accepted people last cycle and this cycle look very similar. The only noticeable difference is the GPA median (3.73 last cycle v 3.8 this cycle). However, when you remove the people who were also accepted to HYS (assuming they choose HYS>Columbia>everything else), you get this:

2013-2014 Non-HYS Accepts:
Total number: 86
25th LSAT: 171
50th LSAT: 173
75th LSAT: 175
25th GPA: 3.58
50th GPA: 3.67
75th GPA: 3.8

2014-2015 Non-HYS Accepts:
Total number: 68
25th LSAT: 170
50th LSAT: 172
75th LSAT: 173
25th GPA: 3.61
50th GPA: 3.7
75th GPA: 3.8

Barring LSN reporting inconsistencies and a crazy surge of people turning down HYS for Columbia, it seems that Columbia will have to pull quite a few people from the waitlist. And from the looks of it, most of those folks will be extreme splitters. This doesn't account for the people who choose Chicago or NYU over Columbia but never report it on LSN (I did account for those who reported their choice to attend another school). Any thoughts?

It was about having a phone conversation with a member of the selection committee.

Got one too. Already interviewed, so not really sure why they want to talk again.

Had my skype interview today. Nothing unusual and very specific to my resume. They said they would make a decision within the next week.

Best of luck! I would have expected them to have more general questions as well actually. Did you get any of the more general ones or was it resume-specific from start to finish?

Is it possible to be admitted without an interview at this point or not?

I'm wondering that same thing. Any anecdotal evidence from years previous?
