To put a huge damper on that though, if I didn't get the Hamilton offer with my acceptance, that means I didn't get it at all, correct?


Man, with your complete date and interview date and your stats, and you didn't get the Hamilton or Butler. There is no way they're just deciding on whether or not to give me a scholarship and more likely to be deciding on whether to waitlist me or not.

Pls take me. I love morningside heights.


Nah, don't say that. Maybe they just didn't like me that way. Plus, to be honest, with no $$ I'm not that interested, so you can have my spot :P

Nice, sounds like you killed it.

Did you guys get the sense that interviewer read your PS?

When I did my Chicago interview, my interviewer told me he knows nothing about my cv, ps.


My Columbia interview was almost entirely about my PS, fwiw

As far as I gather when you get your acceptance you either get Hamilton or butler and those are the only times to get those named scholarships. However once you fill out your financial aid forms you could totally still get some $$.

In this morning via email. Above both 75ths but no named-scholarship offer. I think my interview was good, but my Why Columbia? response was meh. They probably know I don't want to go there.

Wow above both 75ths and no scholly? May they ran out?
I don't get what the criteria are for Hamilton/Butler. They say it's mostly based on LSAT score but...


I've read on TLS somewhere that it's low key based on whether that student is likely to get into HYS. I don't think it's THAT simple especially since Whittie was above both 75ths. The interview may be why. Interviews are for borderline admit/reject applicants and for students eligible for the named scholly (also from anecdotal evidence on TLS)

Columbia 100% read my personal statement.

Pls take me. I love morningside heights.


Nah, don't say that. Maybe they just didn't like me that way. Plus, to be honest, with no $$ I'm not that interested, so you can have my spot :P


I don't understand this. You would think Columbia would waitlist people with your stats if they weren't gonna offer $$+, cause I can't imagine anyone with your numbers paying anything less to attend :roll:

I think I screwed up the interview is what I'm saying. I don't think they were offering me money before, but it was kind of easier to imagine that they were thinking about it (and that's why they haven't got back to me) instead of the other answer which is that they were going to waitlist me.

I also knew someone last year who had a 178 and a 3.9x from and ivy who got into Columbia off the waitlist (the highest ranked school he got into). Granted I didn't see his full application, but that was a huge wave of pessimism for me.
