Based on preparation, PT scores, and calmer nerves, I think it's more likely that I score higher than lower, but I don't think I want my application delayed for a potential couple of LSAT points. I think I'll go ahead and ask them to review it as it is.

I know the answer must be somewhere in the forum... but could someone tell me how does Columbia send rejections/acceptances?

RD applicants receive these by snail mail unless they are abroad, in which case they may (acceptances) hear by email.

Okay, I guess that's good news for me (abroad)... The snail mail takes a long time to reach me.

do enough people decide to go elsewhere and turn them down such that they offer them to some other people come april?


i'm curious about this question also. if you don't get a butler or hamlilton straight away with your acceptance, is that it? or is it possible to be offered one (or to get a butler upgraded to a hamilton) later on if enough people who initially got them withdraw?

well, I'm not sure about named scholarships students often do get merit and aid offers later on. LSN has examples of students discussing negotiation I believe. However, I am near certain upgrades to hamilton don't happen. They aren't try to fill a certain number of hamilton seats so much as they are trying to woo the specific students.

Visited campus today, they had free pizza for students. Admissions officer stone-walled my subtle attempt to elicit information about RD release dates. Heard at least 8 different languages being spoken while on campus.
