right here. submitted mid-November, interviewed mid-Jan



Wow, late interview. I haven't gotten one. I'm paranoid that their emails just don't go through to me lol


I interviewed early Jan, applied late nov, heard nada.

The anxiety in me is telling me that they are waiting to ding.


somehow I don't think they're dinging your 175 while waitlisting high 150s. just a hunch.


That's definitely fair and I know I'm being crazy. I sometimes just can't help it.

Columbia just emailed me telling me to /please apply to their law school/

I almost freaked out in class before I read the e-mail, and then I had to check if my application didn't go through. Columbia, why do you do this to me?

I feel you. This cycle has definitely taken an emotional toll. Hoping the reward for getting through it will be a beautiful JS2 to restore our sanity

Just got a reserve email. Is this better than the waitlist? lol

Numbers below median, No Why essays,I guess this was expected. Probably wouldn't go there without any money anyways.

They're taking you on an emotional roller coaster so that when you are admitted with a Butler you make a hasty decision to attend. And with that I get an annoying email from Syracuse.


My anxiety spikes 80% every time I get a new email now.

It's going to be like this from now up until a decision.


I'm thinking about sending them an email reiterating my interest and adding a 4th LOR either tomorrow or Friday (If I survive)

the urge to tell them that I will attend if admitted is just too strong.

Is it bad to send a LOCI/email and additional info before being put on waitlist?

Seriously regretting not writing a Why X essay rn but I don't want to annoy them with new documents

I have a demanding job and I dedicate a lot of my free time to practicing violin :lol: I was actively looking for an opportunity to help refugees (due to my line of work - even posted about it on here) but who knows how thatll play out now, and I don't expect to be able to start until my busy season ends in April.


if you have any personal connections/interactions to share with alumni, professors, students, or admissions officers from these schools, these could serve to give important dimension to an LOCI. MS9 suggested I do that with my NYU and Penn ones and I'm hoping that the strategy pays off. It's simple to list courses or seminars you love, so I think this approach could have some merit.

Good luck!

Got the waitlist email. Actually surprised it wasn't an outright ding since Columbia is a reach for me, but better than nothing I suppose. I wish you all the best of luck!

A higher percentage of interviewees are accepted than non-interviewed.

So if we interviewed before Christmas and didn't get WL in this wave...do we think that means more likely admit than ding?

I hope so. Do you say this based on any solid info (acceptance spreadsheets, Ivey / MS9 admissions consulting blogs/books, etc.) or is that mostly based on word of mouth/gut feeling/TLS (not that that's a bad thing)?

I'd also really like to hear about anybody's experiences interviewing at CLS. Any advice or insight would be valuable.

Hold up, reserve "letters" came by email, right? Not actual, physical letters? I don't need to check my mailbox?

On a previous year's CLS Reserve thread, it says that Reserve applications were re-evaluated beginning in late May
