I'm slightly above their median GPA but only 25-50 LSAT so I'm not getting my hopes up that much for CLS lol

Thanks for backing me up on this! (I posted that long blurb the other day after speaking with Erica Deane).

Interview starts in 25 minutes! Here's to hoping it goes well! :D

Interview went awesome. I think my experience really confirms that they interview people whose files they have questions about. I took a gap year between high school and college and also designed my own major in undergrad, so the interviewer had a lot of questions about it! Feeling really good right now, and glad I had the opportunity to interview and explain myself more fully :)

The email came about an hour ago. Above 75ths, went complete late September. Must have been a small wave! Anybody else get one today?

Had my interview yesterday. To reiterate what others have been saying about them, mine was also very casual and conversational. I do think that the purpose was to ask about a peculiarity of my app, because in my personal statement I focused heavily on one aspect of myself and I was immediately asked about that. Not sure, I'm above 75th for LSAT/GPA. Definitely have some questions ready because there's a big opening for that at the end.

I have my interview scheduled for tomorrow, and really nervous because I think I'm one of those borderline applicants!
Is interview really shorter than 20 minutes? Does interviewer ask a lot of interviewee-specific questions like something on their PS, resume etc?
LSAT=75th, GPA<25th, international student.

It will be almost 20 minutes exactly, maybe a little longer if you have lots of questions. My interview was very specific to me, so be prepared to talk extensively about anything on your application!

Checking in. Polishing my Why Columbia essay and then submitting today/tomorrow. Debated if I should even apply, but decided to give it a go as a big reach!

interview invite today. I have a dumb question but better to ask here than adcoms. They say it's via skype, but never asked my skype name. How will they know? Do I send them that later?
