Hey guys!
I know this is a really basic question.. but wanted to know anyway.
Columbia website says they prefer work ex and in exceptional cases they accept students in their final year or applicants without work ex.
But I want to know if there is anyone who has been admitted when they were in their final year or even with less than 2 years work ex?

Have u tried calling them?

I submitted my application on 3rd October! and reports on 24th is what LSAC says! And still haven't heard from them. So had called them earlier today. But the first question the lady asked was 'did u apply for the early review'!

So I'd say u need to call them!

I'd say dont worry. I also applied for the early review and got my "application complete" email in November. That was the last I heard from Columbia. They have started to send admissions this week, but so far I guess they have only reached a few applicants (as per this forum, one person from Belgian, one from China and one from Canada). There are still lots of people waiting for the results. Calling them will not help, pretty sure they will tell you to wait ...

I kind of think the same...

I have 3 simple questions and any sort of input from people with experience will be appreciated.


1)Columbia's website says they prefer work ex and in exceptional cases, they accept students in their final year or applicants without work ex.
But I want to know if there is anyone who has been admitted when they were in their final year or even with less than 2 years work ex (14 months) ?

2) Columbia'a website expressly state that letters of recommendation should be posted directed to the law school and letters sent through LSAC will not helpful. Will a letter sent through LSAC be harmful to a strong application. Can that trivial thing be a deciding factor?


3) The Law School's website says one letter of recommendation should be from a working professional. If one can't get his employer to write such letter, what will be the implication (negative or irrelevant) of sending 2 letters from Professors who mention the applicants work experience.

Thanks in advance for your answers,

Julius Caesar

1) I think the preference limit is at least one year of experience. I do not know anyone with less than a year of experience that got admitted. That said I am pretty sure there are people with no experience (this is just my assumption).

2) This is just Columbia's preference. I believe a lot of people on this forum used LSAC to send their LORs. I would be very surprised if that ended up being a deciding factor. I don't think the admission board is that narrow minded.

3) I don't think anyone can really make a valid judgement of this. If it is impossible to get a letter from a employer then you just don't get one. Go with what you got.

I do not have any work experience, and I still applied. I am in my final undergraduate year. Hoping to be an "exceptional circumstance", lol. I guess we will know this answer soon enough!!

Also, I wouldn't worry about the application complete email. I mailed mine in with a tracking number, and It was delivered over 10 days ago and I still haven't received an email, but know that it has definitely arrived!

Yay, a fellow Belgian who was admitted! Your credentials are truly impressive. Are you going to take the offer, or hold out for HLS, SLS...?

Many congratulations.. Must be an amazing feeling to have an offer from CLS. I am just surprised that the dean actually calls to offer the admission. Thought they would just send out emails. I guess we all will patiently wait to see USA coordinates flash on our phones!
