Alright, dumb/neurotic question here, but are the times listed on the interview scheduling website in eastern time or are they in your own time zone? I've got to ask off work for an hour for my appointment, so just trying to be absolutely sure on the time.

I know one at a different T6 who got into Columbia with a high 15x LSAT as well. Always gotta shoot your shot.



Was it off the waitlist? Did he/she cure a major disease/have an Olympic gold medal/something super awesome??
When did the person get admitted?

People that get in within the first few days of ED notifications are the ones they really believe will add to the class. Hope this helps.


Do you happen to have an idea of what that means for people who did not get an interview (and get in)? Or would those people be included in the "get in within the first few days of ED notifications"?

Did anyone send a thank you email after the interview? Not sure what common practice is.

nope, why thank someone for something you know you deserve? 8)

I didn't, but only because it felt odd sending one to a general admissions email

There is just no way that a thank you email actually has any impact on their decision.

I’m not entirely sure of your question. Many ED applicants get in without an interview. Those that got in within the first day or two are applicants with and without interviews and are people that they believe will add to the class ( shoe-ins for whatever reason). I don’t know anything about those that didn’t get in ED other than to say that getting deferred to the regular decision applicant pool is better than outright rejection. Those deferred will still have a small advantage then a similar candidate with the same stats as they are aware that you really want to go there as you were ED. Good Luck.

Weird thing just happened to me.

This morning, Columbia received my application. I was able to get onto the status checker. Now, I can no longer access the status checker. Not only that, but my Columbia law account no longer seems to exist. Anyone else have this issue?

Do we have info on how late in the cycle they will continue to offer interviews?

I want to have a good idea of when I should give up all home and cry myself to sleep nightly. Gotta put it in my planner.

I’m sorry but I don’t know the answer to your question. As stressful as all this is, it will work out for you!

Yeah of course I'm just playing around. I didn't send a thank you email though; I don't think they expect one.

Do you guys know if its common for CLS to ask for senior fall grades for K-JD applicants? Is it more common for ED rather than RD applicants?

I'm a K-JD ED applicant and they requested them from me a few weeks ago.

Got an interview tomorrow. Haven't done an interview in around 5 years.
Hit median LSAT and GPA. Very nervous about this interview because I really want to get into Columbia so any pointers would be helpful.
I think this might have something to do with applying to NYU ED (because they guarantee financial aid to graduates from my university).
Very nervous.

LSAT: 172
GPA: 2.98
NYU Undergrad comp sci major

Applied ED on 11/14. Haven't heard anything yet. How many people here are in my boat? How are you guys feeling? Others please chime in too. My stomach is churning.

Code: Select all

Finals + LS acceptance season = UGH!
