Got the blue admitted students binder... this thing is Absolutely Beautiful. Prettiest thing I've gotten so far (granted, also the "best"/highest-ranked school I've gotten into so far).

Not at all. Share the excitement. there is far too much pessimism/negativity on TLS!
:mrgreen:

Also, get this thread moving! The other CLS thread is 160+ pages! LoL

received a 3-page personalized letter from David Schizer, the President of Columbia Law School in the mail yesterday. it was hand signed at the end! very nice gesture considering I have already enrolled and they really have no reason to woo me anymore. :lol:

Hey Kretzy, were you able to get the full $200 travel reimbursement from Columbia and Chicago? Columbia's telling me to give them my full itinerary so they can split the costs with other law schools.

Pretty good. Housing, classes, t-shirt--nothing groundbreaking or unexpected, but solid shmoozing. Also they seemingly asked all (only?) attractive current students to show up and network...sampling error ftw.

yeah.. i don't think schools should send out information without having something substantial :( .. it got my hopes up seeing it, and then all I discovered was the Roosevelts went to Columbia

Just got the vomit colored envelope today. I'm in! Very excited, and pretty surprised...given some of the people who got waitlisted last week with similar numbers, I was expecting to get waitlisted too.

I don't know, when I visited a class back in October I thought it was a rather attractive bunch.

Sorry if it was mentioned and I missed it somehow: is anyone among those admitted on the big wave last week (this week did not seem to have a large wave, I guess) applied and gone complete in January? Or has everyone who got in applied in Dec/Nov/Oct?
