I just heard a few minutes ago from Columbia and was accepted. I submitted my application in mid-December. Good luck to all those waiting. In case it helps anyone - my legal background is quite weak, so i think i was selected instead on a strong non-legal background and relevant work experience.

HI CroBos, congrats on your admissions notif. Could you share some parts of your background to learn for the next years process? (All you can tell)

Thank you!

Graduated with honours, three years of work experience in top tier law firm (dealing mostly with specific employment and bankruptcy related issues). During my studies, I had four internships (one in UN, one in one NGO and two in law firms) and did semester abroad on Erasmus.

However, I must say that, after I have recieved the admission, I highly believe that Columbia is really "into" work experience and strong Personal Statement. My TOEFL was only 103 (which was my weak point) and my grades, although sufficient for honours in my country, were qualified only as "above average". But I do have a considerable work experience and a lot of pro bono experience, which I highly pointed out in the Statement.

Hope this was helpful. :)

Me neither but I don't like to give up and loose hope. My basketball coach at high school drum this into my mind: "Winners never quit; quitters never win!". Besides, their e-mail states that most of the decisions are announced in mid-April to end of April and we are just in the middle of April; so there is no reason to loose hope as of yet.

(Bonne chance avec votre application.)

Guys, just a quick Q- what is the consequence of 1st deposit payment? Basically, what if, prior to our trip to US, our personal situation changes so much that we decide that we do not wanna go after all (eg we lose our job, get sick or something like this)?? Are we obliged to pay 55k like we took this LLM or only thing we can lose is 500 (or 750) USD? I'm hope that nothing unexpected will happen to me, but just want to make sure given the fact that for me 55k is a lot money....

My ex-girl friend experienced such a situation in 2010 when her ex boy-friend, i.e.me, suffered a terrible car accident just a month ago before her departure to NYC and she deferred her enrolment to 2011. I am not sure of the payment details but I can assure you that at the end she didn't loose her deposit.

This was of course an exceptional situation in which she decided to defer her enrollment for not because of any reason but because a loved one was dying. Hope nothing like that happens to you or your loved ones and you enjoy your time at Columbia.

You only lose the deposit, no obligation to pay the tuition. In any case, if you want to defer your admission you have until May 1st.

Actually, being a lawyer has taught me to be extra careful, expecially when it comes to money... Sorry if this question has insulted your inteligence, but then again, thanks for your help re my concerns :)
