Congrats to everyone, though I wish you guys would post complete dates so I don't have to click through 10 different LSN profiles to find out how far they've gotten through RD applications.

Just got the admitted students package...it's a lot nicer than the initial ugly envelope haha. I have a Thursday seminar I can't really miss, so I'm not going to either of the admit weekends. I'm going up to NYC the last weekend in Feb though (2/26-2/28) to look at CLS and NYU...PM if you'll be there and want to meet up!

Wow, joining the fbook group was so anticlimactic... no posts, no discussions, etc. C'mon people, get excited--we're going to CLS! :D

Yep, CLS is my first choice by far...pretty sure now that I'll end up there. And yeah, I actually prefer hommos too, but babaghanouj sounded like a better name... :oops:

congrats everyone!! so excited!

question for you guys who are in at columbia/NYU - are any of you doing the april ASWs? columbia's awkwardly falls on the 7/8 and NYU's is the 8/9, and since i'm from TX i was going to try to do both that same week, but i feel like i'd be missing a lot of important stuff if i skipped part of either! thoughts?!

Wow this post feels like weeks old now.

I found out on the 30th that I got in, big ol' ugly packet jutting out of my mailbox! On my birthday nonetheless!

So I'll post my dates so I'm not a hypocrite:

Complete 12/23
Acceptance postmarked 1/26

i live in manhattan and im probably not gonna attend both days of columbia's asw just cuz id rather use my work vacation days for... well, vacation.

don't sweat it, i know plenty of people who never went to asw and got along just fine, there's really nothing going on at an asw that's important enough to stress about.

I'm attending different Columbia and NYU ASWs, but only because I have the time, and I have no idea which school I prefer. I'm sure it's completely fine to combine them (especially if you know which school you lean towards).

is there a binder? I want a binder. Dinged by Yale and need a binder or at least something more than that sucky folder (note: I am currently eating a cookie so that's a small comfort).

great, yeah, that's what i am hoping! i know the ASW stuff can be a little overrated (especially since i ended up at a university whose ASW i absolutely hated!) but i really want to get a feel of how these law schools differ--and how they're the same.

Not sure if the itinerary has been released, but is it all day Wednesday and Thursday or is one day shorter? I haven't been accepted yet but I can only make one trip up to NYC so I'm trying to plan in accordance to NYU's ASW just in case.

From what I've read, the NYU ASW registration goes until the afternoon on Thursday.

so this has been stated before I'm sure, but CLS does not fly us out? Not even the Hamilton kids?

You have to fill out a financial need request, and have it approved before the ASW you choose to attend. Email admit@law.columbia.edu and ask for their travel assistance request form.

I have a hunch they'll approve it for Hamilton folks.
