Just received an admission email from CLS. They told that "this years applicant pool is the largest and one of the most highly qualified in our history".

Some news to CLS waitlisted people - I do not think that I will be going, so my place will be potentially free.

Good luck!

Got admitted half an hour back. Any idea about financial aid decisions?

Congratulations!

Financial aid decisions should come with the offer of admission.

Hello everyone, I just received this email:

Dear XXXX
Thank you for your application for admission to Columbia's LLM Program. I am writing at the committee's request. If you have not yet made plans for next year, I would like to schedule a time to speak with you about your application and your academic and professional goals.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Best,
Dean, Graduate Legal Studies

Did anyone receive an email like this? I'm a bit confused, What does this email mean?

Thank you for your comments.

Hey, I got similar e-mail last night but as I live quite far from NY, they just ask me to e-mail them telling my current work situation. Let's keep our fingers crossed.

Just received an admission email from CLS. They told that "this years applicant pool is the largest and one of the most highly qualified in our history".


LOL!
I compared my admission email with Columbia's last year's admission letter from a friend and the text was completely the same, including the phrase "this years applicant pool is the largest and one of the most highly qualified in our history".
Another friend who received his admission email four years ago has also been told that same phrase... :)

However, I've declined my offer last week, meaning another place has become free for those of you still waiting. Good luck!

Hey !

Congrats to all admitted and good luck with other applications to the ones who were not.

I was admitted and decided to enroll to Columbia. I was trying to deal with housing application etc. and wanted to know whether there is an admitted students facebook page / forum for this year to discuss these topics??

Thanks and best wishes!

Why don't you join the group that your future classmates have created? :) Housing has been discussed there already.

I just received my admission package and am really confused. There's no mention of the date by which I must confirm the offer and make the first deposit. It just states housing application deadline is May 15. Does it mean that May 15 is the deadline for confirming the offer?

Also, the letter states that financial aid decisions are yet to be made. Any idea by when they'll declare fin. aid results or if someone has already received it. I'll be grateful if someone could help me with this.

Thanks.

I am in the same situation. Was accepted a few weeks ago but waiting to hear about financial aid. Been told no action required until I receive that email, which will also tell me the date by which the first deposit cheque is required. Did others hear about financial aid already?

Hey, usually the financial aid info is in the admission email. If you didn't get any (like me), the admission email doesn't talk about financial aid.
