I did! There is an interesting thing I'm practicing in this period and I thought it was worth some lines... It's not actually so "fun", it's interesting and it didn't come up anywhere else in my app!


I did and was asked about them in my interview - it's a good opportunity to show you're not just numbers on a page.

At the end of mine I said that I hope they thought I was a fun guy, like a mushroom!

Lmao. Yeah I kept wanting to crack jokes as I filled it out so that maybe they would think I'm fun, friendly, and hip and just magically look over my 169 lsat score lmao

yeah i basically told them about the kinds of youtube videos i watch and that i like to play bass and ukulele and then put in the bad pun at the end for the exact same reason. those kinds of things are set up for you to be silly, so might as well take advantage of it

Just did my interview this past week. It went well. More of a conversation than an interview.

Why Columbia?
Why undergrad major?
Several questions regarding my work experiences.
Several personal questions from my statement.

I was told that I'd hear back around the end of January. A long wait until then...

Good luck to everyone else!

There has to be something you can put down.


Did you do summaries or lists?


I wrote 1 paragraph about 1 thing, that's it. I used all the 1000 characters

Does CLS make scholarship decisions simultaneously with admission's decisions?

As far as I know, Hamiltons and Butlers come with your admission offer. Everything else is later.

If I didn't complete a fun facts list because I totally did not see it. Should I send it in after I've already sent in the app?

I thought so too but since I was ED maybe they thought mail wouldn't make it in December with Christmas? They also wrote "happy holidays " at the bottom of the letter before scanning so I think they were making a point of letting me know before Christmas (or atleast I'm pretending that's the case)

Is it safe to assume you are not in the NY area?

If you look back in the thread pretty sure all acceptances have been by email so far. Anyone know best practice for ED put on hold writing an LOCI? I assume given the ED it's obvious I'm still interested...
