For people who are sending in LOCI's, are you mailing in physical copies or doing it online in the form?

I was admitted on 1/18 too and also have not received the admit packet yet. I emailed the admissions dept and they said it had been sent and not returned to them, so there must be something weird happening with the USPS. I thought it was just my postal guy (I recently had a piece of mail delivered to the wrong address TWICE before it finally showed up at my place way later), but if you're having the same problem idk...I was thinking of emailing again next week if I still haven't gotten it and requesting they send a new packet. My address was correct on the pdf of the letter they sent me, so idk what's up...

I got that financial aid email too. I'm working on my app right now but good god it is so time-consuming. My parents are SUPER annoyed they have to send their tax returns in to the school...I had to remind them that this was not my fault, blame Columbia :P


I was admitted 1/19 and have not received anything either.. maybe they have a stack of letters they forgot to send???

What form online? I was going to reply to the general admissions email w LSAC ID in the subject, same as for a regular update. That's what I did last year and it worked (well, obviously not worked in that I got in, but worked in that they received it and added it to my file)

I've been hearing a lot that it's good to send in a physical copy to be sure it gets in the file, but there's also this http://www.law.columbia.edu/admissions/ ... d-interest

I believe that one of the Hamiltons from last year was K-JD, though I could be wrong on that. But I was only a year out myself.

so how many of us are here who 1) did not get a reserve or hold email and 2) think (or at least hoping) we will not be dinged straight up

is there another group we could be placed in that we don't know about.......

Me. Confused too about my status. I wouldn't be concerned or surprised if they dinged me straight up at this point, but based on my cycle so far, I was expecting reserve?

Me. Applied in October. And I was having an existential crisis last night and fervently looked through last year's thread and this year's LSN. Results are inconclusive. There weren't TOO many people in this situation on last year's thread. Some were reserved in the March wave and there was at least 1 or 2 acceptances reported.

Also, the LSN for columbia last year (at least for my stats) were very atypical. Everyone applied in January and was waitlisted. There were like no early applicants. So I can't gleam much into that. As much as I don't want, I'm trying to tell myself I likely won't hear anything until next month.

Also applied in October. It doesn't make sense to me that they would make a decision on us next month and not give us a hold email. but then again, this cycle in general doesn't make sense.........

My only guess is when we were first reviewed we weren't auto WL so they haven't gone back yet to review us. I don't recall when the hold people submitted- does anyone know? I believe there was only one wave of held last year, but it was later in February like the 25th.

I did not interview. Someone with my exact stats/exp./etc. on LSN interviewed in November but hasn't reported any updates either. :mrgreen:
