Just a minute ago. It was a PDF. Did people who heard about the non-Hamilton/Butler scholarships hear in their PDF acceptance?

I was nominated for the Richman Leadership Fellowship and was notified in my PDF acceptance. I think I saw that another TLSer in yesterday's wave was nominated for the PI scholarship and heard in their original letter. Not sure if that's uniform across the board though

I think that's me. I assumed the Richman was a PI scholarship since that's what I'm interested. I cannot find any info on this!

Haha me either! I've been researching since yesterday and even past TLS threads appear to contain very little info on it

Man I keep seeing people with the exact same GPA but 170 LSAT get into CLS and NYU, which are my top two schools. I have a 169 and those are the only schools I haven't heard back from yet. It makes me want to retake. But I don't know if I can put myself through that agony for a third time. :(

Ha I wish! I found a few TLS posts even back in 2012 that mention it, mostly people asking "does anyone have any more info about this" and no one answering them :lol:

I'm going through this exact same thing. Kicking myself for not pushing harder on the LSAT or retaking, it's torture, I feel you. Best of luck to you!

Haha I definitely pushed myself for the LSAT, for like 2 years and 169.7 or something was my average, so idk what else I can do but it just sucks being so close. Good luck to you as well!

Nope, no interview. This was the first I had heard from them.

In via email! Thought it was a joke at first. No mention of scholarship info. Submitted at the beginning of December, no interview, attended an information session.

Do we have any stats on what Columbia's interview-to-admit rate is?

Would you mind sharing your stats? I never got an interview request and I'm getting less and less optimistic

My understanding is that Columbia only interviews borderline applicants like yours truly and scholarship contenders. Looks like plenty of people are being admitted without interviews!

I'm a reverse splitter here so I kind of felt like if I had a chance of getting in I would definitely be interviewed first. We'll see! It's only my dream school, no big deal. :oops:

Out of curiosity, has anyone who 1)submitted end of Nov or earlier and 2) interviewed in mid/early January or earlier gotten in but w/o a named scholarship?

Starting to lose hope. I've got good stats, I really think my interview shot me in the foot.
