CLS ad-com is getting together a small group of student 'ambassadors' to help out w/ stuff and we have our first lunch next week. I'll see if they tell us anything useful, even if its just a general sense of how the trends in this cycle's looking so far.
And to the guy ~20 posts up, CLS sometimes requests additional information or explanations of stuff about your application. Most of the time, such requests are followed by an admit (pure anecdotal ev, but I would take it as a good sign if they're requesting more info). I've yet to figure out why they actually do this, esp for ED, but it's fairly common at CLS and they're doing more and more of this each cycle.
Good luck to everyone! Hope to see some of you here next year.
Thanks for that, sir, you are a valuable asset to all things Columbia on this board.
