FWIW, I asked in the Columbia students taking questions thread if it's possible to get a scholarship later from Columbia if you don't receive a butler/hammy with acceptance, and one guy said you can definitely get more than 50% scholly later. So there's that one anecdote.

Also, I'm assuming if acz26's friend was able to negotiate up from a butler to a hammy, some negotiations must occur!

Depends on your other options. If you have $$$ at other T14s, then no.

60k and up (over 3 years). But everyone is different of course. I just don't think Columbia's job prospects are THAT much better than Duke or UVA or UPenn to justify sticker vs scholarship money

Moved to NYC after MVPB undergrad... it is so much fun here that CLS vs HLS would actually be a question on my mind.


Finally went complete today. 173/3.65. Hoping for not sticker, Feb LSAT incoming

Michigan and Berkley are a bit below the 3 I mentioned above, but again, not a huge difference. I believe Michigan and Berkley are around 60% biglaw + fed clerkships while Columbia is around 75-80. (UPENN, Duke, and UVA are around 70-75)

yup but those lower numbers (esp Berkeley) have a lot to do with self selection and PI ppl. When you include PI then I'd put Berkeley and Mich on par with the other 3

I'm assuming you Hamilton winners have LSAT>75, but anyone get a Hammy with 50<GPA<75, or is that more Butler territory?
