For ED Applicants:
If I haven't heard back from them in any regard, should I be worried?
Keep in mind my GPA is well below their 25th but my LSAT is well above their 75th

Checking in! Applied at the end of November. I'm median LSAT and slightly below 25% GPA, so I'm viewing this as a total long shot.

Just finished my interview. I definitely could’ve answered some things more eloquently, but I really liked my interviewer and things felt pretty conversational towards the end. Come on mid-January!!

For what it’s worth, I had my interview several days ago. It was super conversational and the interviewer was so friendly. The questions were mostly the usual (why Law, etc) or resume specific. It got me legitimately excited about Columbia despite the thought of living in NYC giving me panic attacks.

Checking in! I just applied yesterday. GPA + LSAT both between 50th & 75th percentile, good softs but I'm graduating this year and not URM. I'd say I"m more likely than not to get in but IDK, does me applying this late (mid-December) hurt my chances significantly? Also, anyone care to venture a guess as to when I'd hear back re: interview or anything else?

Also got an interview request today. I'm excited, but since this'll be my first non-Kira law interview I'm a bit nervous too. Good luck everyone!

Got rejection in the mail yesterday. Very expected result for an ED applicant with a 2.98 & 172, yet somehow also very disappointing. Good luck to everyone else.
