No. I applied early September and just interviewed with significantly worse numbers. Also you might not even need to interview. Relax, it's only been a month for you.

Anyone else just get an email from Columbia with the subject "Columbia Law School's Diverse Community"? I'm sure it means nothing, but it definitely made my heart skip a few beats.

Is this some kind of test? When they ask why Columbia in my interview should I rattle off some of these diversity numbers? Lolol

Not URM, no interview request. I also got way too excited when I saw the email preview on my phone.

They never had RD interviews this early though, no? Most of them were mid-December last year.

No, Columbia only interviews a portion of its applicant pool, and many are admitted without interviews. It seems like nobody really has a firm grasp on why they interview certain people and not others

I read somewhere (possibly earlier on this thread) that interviews are likely for students who are a "maybe" for admission (i.e. lower numbers but not too low) and/or if you have something particularly interesting (good or bad) that they want to know more about in your app.
