I honestly love having international students in my class. I hope you get in.

Only when they are from Norway

Since Columbia and Chicago seem to do their RD acceptances in pretty much the same like 3-4 day period, I honestly wonder if the deans call each other and draw straws or something for the day they want. I'll put 50 internet points on a Columbia Thursday and a Chicago Friday.

Any reasons people are saying Thurs/Fri rather than the usual Tues (obviously gone now)/Wed? App numbers? Interviewer tip offs?

Last year Columbia had their first three waves three days in a row, still hoping for a Wednesday- Friday high tide.

There is literally no logic to any of this, it is random speculation.

Since I’m lazy and I’m sure someone else combed the thread today, do Butlers and Hamiltons come with admissions offers? Holding onto hope!

I read through last year's thread today and it looks like they do! Last year the first acceptance wave was on Wednesday and didn't include any scholarships, then there were two more waves on Thursday and Friday that both included Butlers and Hamiltons. People reported getting a PDF attached to the email that explained the details of the scholarship. Preemptive warning to people with high stats not to freak out if you're not in the first day of admits :D

What makes you think your interview wasn't great? It's a pretty casual interview, so I'm sure you did fine! They're certainly not expecting poetic, Pulitzer-nominee answers out of the blue! :)

I felt like my interview wasn't spectacular either... My time-slot was at the end of the day and they ended up calling me 15 minutes late, so I had 15 minutes of sitting there staring at my computer screen letting nerves build up before the interview began. I felt like they asked tougher questions than the other schools did -- especially in the way that my interviewer phrased the "why law" question. It was more like I was being asked to defend my decision to a skeptical interviewer, rather than being invited to share more information. It put me on edge a bit. Overall I don't think the interview went horribly, but I also didn't walk away from it feeling like it went super well. I'm definitely nervous about getting this decision back.

A reminder to everyone that you are all wonderful and valuable humans and getting into Columbia does not affect that! Take care of yourselves!

It's been two weeks since I submitted the application, but it's still pending. How long does it usually take to complete?
