pray tell how you know that anyone not admitted by mid-march is on the waiting list?

A Spanish colleague of mine (acm23, also in this forum) received his admission e-mail on April 3rd...
Don´t you guys find suspicious that people who never placed posts come out of nowhere with striking news? Regarding that theory about undercover CLS alumni promoting their LLM, I hope it is not true - in spite of Marietta & Co, CLS is a great university and doesn´t need this kind of "help"...

Well, I am a current LLM and I don't think that *undercover CLS alumni* are promoting the program.

I would suggest that you write a letter if you don't like Marietta's behavior. Maybe it will help future LLMs.

On the whole, the great majority of the staff here is very helpful. There are a few who only do as little as possible or are just plain unfriendly.

Personally, I can tell you that I don't like Marietta, but who cares. Again, she is of no importance for yu once you are here.

listen, i am sorry to say this, and it shouldnt make those of u who r waiting feel bad, cause we all know how random these admissions r, but i have been admitted to CLS in mid Feb, and i know that anyone that didnt hear from them after mid March is waitlisted, so try to understand, that they cant make a desicion, until the people that were accepted reject or aprove...
either way- if u feel that the staff there wasnt nice- u can send a letter to the dean. i think it will only do good! (for future llm's)


A French friend of mine got admitted on April 14th (last Friday, Good Friday....). "Wait and see", in my opinion, is a good philosophy.

Hi everyone. I am a Brazilian lawyer who was admitted, among others, to NYU and still waiting Columbia's decision. Between NYU and CLS I rather go to NYU since I will focus my studies in International Legal Studies. However, since living in NY is extremely expensive, a great scholarship from CLS could make me change my mind. Since I did not hear from CLS until now I believe it is almost impossible to be offred a schorship from CLS. Do you agree? I am really worried because I still did not enroll at NYU and need to start dealing with all burocracy regarding Visa, housing, etc...

Did you apply for a specific fellowship? I applied for a Human Rights Fellowship, but received no word thus far (though admitted nearly two months ago). Two friends of mine who were admitted, and didn't apply for a specific fellowship, were informed of the financial aid decision shortly after, and were required to confirm attendance by a certain date.

Just five minutes ago I received the admission email from Columbia. I have already enrolled at Yale and will decline Columbia's offer. Perhaps some of you guys will be offered my place. Cheers. -Toni-

Thank you Toni. If you can mention my name in your declining message, it would be great.

The fact that tmalmine received his admission only today is proof that Columbia is still processing applications and are not now sitting on admissions because anyone who has not heard yet is waitlisted.

tmalmine has top credentials. There is no way he was waitlisted by Columbia.

Doesn't mean a thing. I know someone admitted at Yale who was rejected at Harvard.

I am also really tired to wait for an answer from Columbia .... Their application reviewing process really sucks .... Did anybody which applied close to the deadline (December 15) already receive an answer?

I sent my application just in time to meet the deadline. I don't have a clue whether I was waitlisted or not, but it is possible that they're still reviewing some of the applications. Best of luck to those who are still waiting for the decision.

Just spoke with Marietta,

Today she is emailing a bunch of offers, rejections, and waitlists. Just because you have not heard by now does not mean you are waitlisted. Offers, rejections and waitlists will be made by email up until May 10 according to her...

Although, if I don't hear anything by Monday I'm putting my deposit down somewhere else, waiting this long is ridiculous.

Hi All,

I'm one of the oh so lucky few still awaiting a reply from Columbia.

I was just wondering does the delay have to do with the fact that we sent in our applications just before the deadline. I know my application was received Dec 14. Did everyone else still waiting send in their applications just before the deadline?

Tash, this is just to tell you that I believe that the date when you sent your application doesn't matter. My application was received on Dec 14 and I received an answer on Feb 28.
The rolling based system basically means that CLS review all the application simply by chance.
As far as I know admissions are still in process.
Good luck!
