Anyone having issues with their status checker? It says my info doesn't match what's on file so I can't log on. When I email admissions, they just sent back a message saying I was complete and didn't really answer the question...

I guess it's just one less thing to check obsessively.

Congrats to everyone!!! Hope you kick ass! Does anyone know if an interview is required in order to be awarded a scholarship? Also are international students eligible for these scholarships?

Pretty vague, general - why Columbia, why NYC, etc.

Do you think Columbia is moving to a system that interviews become a requirement for admissions? Seems like a lot of interviews this yer so far.

There is literally nothing else to check... it stops updating once it shows complete.

Possibly. My interview definitely felt like they were trying to put my app in context in a way that makes me feel less confident about my chances.


what do you mean? how?

Got the interview request yesterday as well! Above GPA median and LSAT 75th. Looks like there was about 40-60 slots for interviews in total, if that's helpful info.

Anyone who has been admitted a little puzzled by lack of info/materials? Received my admissions letter and confirmed my address and since then it's been radio silence.

Mine also felt wildly informal. I think it might just be their style.

Any ED applicants still without interview requests? I applied pretty late (literally on 11/15), but am assuming this silence is not a good thing :(
Any rejections/ deferrals to RD yet?
