I'm curious: how much $ would it take from Columbia for you to choose it over a t3? Say H?

Friendly reminder that CLS is one of the only law schools that typically wants study abroad transcripts. Send yours in directly to them.

Depends on your goals. If you just want to work big law in New York, then it would be hard to justify Harvard over Columbia with a substantial cost differential. On TLS, significantly more scholarship money at a lower ranked T14 is almost always the credited response.

Does Columbia do merit fee waivers? I've searched the site and seen both 'yes, all the time', and 'no, never'. I don't know what to believe anymore.
