Application status: First RD (admitted) Wave - Jan. 18, notification via email

Looking at last year's LSN info:

They had their first wave (admits only) 1/18, then acceptances rolled through the next two weeks. Then there was the first wave of WLers 2/8. Rejections sorta sprinkled in until mid-late April.

Bump for this question/do they send unsolicited fee waivers?

Update: Emailed them and asked both about merit-based (GPA=median, LSAT=75th) and Teach for America waivers and got this:

Thank you for your interest in Columbia Law School. Columbia, itself, does not process requests for fee waivers. Rather, Columbia utilizes the application for determining eligibility for fee waivers directly through Law School Admission Council's mechanism. Once eligibility has been established and approved by LSAC, candidates will automatically receive a fee waiver for Columbia Law School upon submitting an application for admission. For additional details about fee waivers, kindly visit http://www.lsac.org/jd/lsat/fee-waivers.

We hope to review your application in the coming months.
