Columbia admission process


anushka

Hi djvakil,

Thanks for your suggestion, I actually did that, at least to be sure the fax reached them...

Anyway, tough choice you got to make...

I would personally choose the fullbright option...In my case, since I havent received aid from the schools where I was admitted so far, I have to go for "ranking"...but if I had the opportunity of studying with such privilege of having everything covered (financially), I wouldnt think twice.

lol, seems like it. what i thought from columbia's email was that i did not get the fellowship and that they are still evaluating it for prospective candidates. i think u should wait till the end of april before ruling anything out. best of luck scotty!

and hey anushka..........do update us on ur columbia admission:)

I wonder if applying for financial aid adversely affects chances of admission. I filled out the form stating that I only had half the money required to do the LLM. A friend of mine did not apply for any financial assistance and was admitted over 6 weeks ago. His grades were not as high as mine and he has no legal experience.

I did not apply for financial aid but still didn't hear anything about Columbia neither.

Has anybody else heard about Columbia lately?
Thanks.

JDI:

That's pretty stupid. I've learned through this experience that admissions involves a lot of subjectivity and luck.

It's gone man... They won't be back. Columbia disintegrated during its reentry in the Earth atmosphere, on Feb. 1, 2003. I am sorry. Be strong.

PS : It's the second time that I do this joke on this forum (an maybe even in this very thread) but I can't resist...

do you really think so? I'm inclined to believe these schools are keen to make money, not give it away...

JDI:

Sorry, i didn't mean your suggestion was stupid... I meant the fact that your friend had been admitted, and you not, at least yet, (give the comparison in credentials) was ridiculous.

Just received a very strange email from Columbia. It was completely blank for about a page, followed by Marietta LaFargue's address on the bottom. Not sure if something is wrong with my email. Did anyone else get this?

I'll trade my Harvard second test email for your Columbia first test email. And I can also include a waiting list email from NYU in the package:)))
Good Luck to all.....

I think its hilarious that LLM-Guide.com has created its own "inside" jokes...

you could be at a party in 15 years and someone's LLM comes up in conversation and you say: did you receive the first test email or second test email?

those "in the know" will chuckle, while others will awkwardly try to change the topic of conversation
