Really hoping re a scholly wave soon!!

What is the consensus on the LSAT cutoff for a Butler offer? I read that 174 is generally considered the floor for Hamiltons, but would Butlers be a bit lower?

Columbia puts scholarships inside their admit emails?

Yes.


To expand, people were informed they'd received Hamiltons (full ride scholarship) in their acceptance emails last week. Scroll back a few pages.

+1, and no reported Butlers yet.

Uh oh. Does this mean those who were accepted without any scholly info are getting none at all?

From my understanding, if you don't get a named scholarship upon acceptance you still qualify for general merit-based aid which will come later.

OMG I got in. Was not expecting this with my low LSAT score (169). Got the email at 4:29. Good luck everyone!

Do people think there's any chance of a scholarship wave this evening? Especially given how acceptances keep streaming out later into the afternoon.

The emails include a pdf scan of the letter then send with your acceptance package. That would explain the delay. They’re photocopying these by hand, one at a time

You're probably right. Though there is a small chance they could've all been scanned and copied the previous day.

Feeling more and more like an idiot every 10 minutes for not selecting the person in my office who is a member of the CLS faculty as my recommender.
