Alright everyone. Since it's now officially Monday in the east coast, I'm going to go ahead and tell everyone AHEAD of time:

DO NOT FREAK OUT IF THERE IS A WAVE TODAY AND YOU ARE NOT PART OF IT. BASED ON LAST CYCLE, THERE WILL STILL BE AT LEAST A FEW MORE WAVES OF ADMITS BEFORE DENIALS/WL.

Relaaaax. We'll all land where we should be... I hope.

I mean, tbh I'm assuming that, regardless of whether or not CLS accepts ppl ITT, everyone will end up getting into a top school. And one top school is better than none (that's what I've been telling myself since I've been accepted to Michigan and Gtown but am still waiting for like.. all my other T14 decisions) :lol:

Soooo since their status checker isn't helpful at all, we just wait until we get an email or something, right? And I'm guessing from what I have read that there is no timeline.

Did anyone's RD acceptance letter include scholarship information? I'm curious if I should assume I won't be receiving any or what. Gpa/LSAT at/slightly above 75th, non-urm. thanks!

I've been saying something similar: can only go to one school.

To the TLS Speculators - what do you think?

Columbia sent me two emails to clarify transcript questions, the last one was on January 6 - did they forget about me?

I think the only people who received scholly info were those offered Butlers and Hamiltons. I could be wrong though.

I don't think they forgot about you. Plus, they only recently started offering RD acceptances. Worry less! Lol

Haven't decided yet, but anyone planning on doing half of NYU's and half of Columbia's? They very kindly picked the same weeks for ASW's.

Same weeks as Columbia but on Thursday and Friday instead of Wednesday and Thursday. And then I think they have another one in mid to late April.
