RG, you applied through a regular cycle, right?

CLS website states decisions are delivered March through May. Their decisions seem to be moving forward!

Hi PA! Yes, I applied thru regular cycle, right before the deadline, and my "application complete" came on Jan 7.

Anyone else heard anything about REGULAR cycle? I'm still waiting - just want to keep the topic alive.

I applied trough the regular cycle (12/12/2007) and received the admission e-mail last Wednesday (1/6/2008). Today I received by Fedex the formal admission letter along with the Admitted Student Handbook.

Curiously, I did never receive the application completion e-mail. I wrote last Wednesday requesting an up-date on my application status and later that same afternoon I received the admission e-mail. However, I dont know if the admission e-mail had anything to do with me filing the information request.

I wanted to let you know that my wife received the admission notice yesterday. She sent her application right before the deadline. The admissions e-mail also mentioned that CLS couldnt offer her financial aid. The deadline for accepting is Marc 15th.

Hi, everyone!

I'd like to know what are your law school scores, cuz I want to apply for Columbia, but my scores are not so great. So, I would love if you guys that were accepted could tell me what are your law school scores so I can find if I'll have to improve my grades.

Thank you all.
xoxo

Mila: Im Colombian and our grading system is quite different from the American system. My GPA was 4.58 / 5.00. According to the LSAC report the suggested US grades are as follows:

A+ = 5.00 to 4.6
A = 4.4 to 4.0
B = 3.99 to 3.5
C = 3.49 to 3.00
F = 2.99 to 0

Hi, guys, I also got the admission e-mail yesterday! I was really pleased because it was my first admission and Columbia was one of my first choices. FYI, I am an asian lawyer who have several years experience of corporate and governmental litigation and arbitration. I applied through the regular cycle right before the deadline. I have to deposit 500 US$ by Mar 15.

Of course, I am planning to accept their offer, but still waiting for Berkeley's offer before I finally make a decision (I didn't applied to Stanford). I understand that Columbia and NYC is simply the best place for studying transnational litigation and international arbitration, but does anybody have information about Berkeley in this field? I am kind of attracted to Berkeley for their finest weather and surroundings...and NYC's high cost of living somewhat scares me...

Thanks in advance, and for those who are waiting, wish you good luck!!!

Congratulations on your admission. Im also interested in litigation and international arbitration. I applied to CLS, HLS and NYU, (I didnt apply to Berkley). CLS is my fist choice, but Im still waiting for offers from HLS and NYU. Do you have an opinion on which one is better in our fields of interest?

FYI, I applied to CLS, UPenn, Berkeley, Northwestern. Even though I considered some other aspects such as superiority of the business law faculty, diversity of the program etc, I must say that I selected schools primarily by general reputations. I didn't appy to HLS and NYU in that I didn't have much time and failed to meet the deadline of these 2 schools. I regret that I lost the opportunity, however, as to NYU, actually their large llm size and selectivity led me to lose interest.

Per international arbitration, I cunsulted to my firm's IP/Arbitration partner who is CLS alumnus. He naturally advised me to go to CLS and told me of some huge guy's name like Smit and Bermann, but in substance nothing more (he graduated long time ago). Therefore, I checked through this site and concluded that even though it might not be the best (compared to HLS), CLS+NYC would be perfect combination. Sorry that I cannot be of any help. Hope you find some useful insights from these old posts.
