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


I submitted 10/25, interviewed 12/15 and got in during the first/no scholarship wave.

LSAT barely above 50th
GPA = 50

Anyone who was accepted in the first wave last week still not received their physical letter & package in the mail? I still haven't gotten mine :( (although it's quite possible that the post office in my city is just incompetent)

I think they might be incompetent :lol: , but DC isn't exactly known for their competence and I got mine so I do not know what to think.

Maybe it has something to do with distance? I live in MN so it had farther to travel? But some of my mail was recently delivered to the wrong address TWICE, so there is certainly evidence to support the incompetence theory :lol:

Was February primarily WL/rejects last cycle? Or do admissions (and scholarships?) continue heavily through February as well? 177, 4.1X, interviewed in late November starting to wonder...

If you are WL/rejected with those stats, my mind will officially be blown. Unfortunately, however, I do not know the answer to your question.

I have literally the exact same stats and was also interviewed in late November. I haven't heard anything yet. Looks like we're in this wait together!

Did you receive it via email or snail mail? And if snail mail where approximately are you located? I'm on the West Coast and I'm going crazy waiting for my letter.

Invited to interview! Any consensus for what this means in terms of my admission chances?

Gives me hope that they are still offering interviews this late into the waves of acceptances! Mind sharing your stats and when you submitted?

Was anyone else asked for transcripts from their undergraduate study abroad program? No other school has asked me for this. Columbia emailed me and said I had to send this in first for my file to be complete. But they requested that my transcripts be sent directly to them, instead of to LSAC. I am wondering how they will interpret my marks since the country I was in had a different grading scale than the United States....

Almost the exact same stats over here (just a 3.92 GPA but that's a negligible difference) submitted at the exact same time and just got the invite to interview as well. Really curious what this means, but hoping it's a good sign! At least we're in this together!!

Sorry I'm literally asking everyone this because I'm paranoid but would you mind staring stats and dates? Congrats!
