Well they see you when you're sleeping and know when you're awake, so probably.


If they can monitor how much I refresh this thread on TLS, that's probably true.

Look back in this thread and you'll see mixed responses. I think it's a good sign (or at least neutral). In the past ppl who were interviewed were either borderline or had numbers good enough for scholarships. I think Columbia is making an effort to interview more of the applicant pool however, and not just borderline/schollies.

Lol depends on your stats I think

I got interviewed and I am above 75 in both LSAT and GPA. Don't overthink it. Apparently they are interested in talking to you and that's what is important. Just be yourself and well behaved and it will be fine.

Congrats on landing an interview. Were there any curveball questions?

Waitlisted via email on Tuesday. Stats are a 166/3.83. Pretty predictable outcome with my numbers. Going to ride it out and hopefully cure cancer or do something equally impressive in March to hopefully get an acceptance.

No, it was very straightforward and pleasant. Nothing shocking or trying to trip me up.

unfortunately, a retake for a higher lsat score would be much more impactful than curing cancer.

I disagree to some extent. There are outliers every cycle at every school. Who are these people if not nobel laureates, best-selling authors, and astronauts?

Yes, looking like a retake is in my cards. Might sit this cycle out and do June.
