Columbia/Early Review

Not yet. I heard from a friend who was admitted to CLS in 2008 that they should send the decision email before Christmas, with the original package to follow around new year.

This wait is ridiculously painful. I have developed an unfortunate obsession with checking emails. Please Columbia put us out of our misery.

FYI I received this last night:

We regret to inform you that after careful consideration of your application for admission to our LL.M. Program, the admissions committee has concluded that we are unable to offer you admission. To date this year's applicant pool is the most highly qualified in our history. Competition for admission has never been more keen.

Thank you for your interest in Columbia Law School and for your personal investment in our selection process. We wish you continued success and satisfaction in your legal career.

Good luck to everyone still hoping.

FYI received yesterday;

"While we are unable to give you a decision at this time, in recognition of your strong academic and professional credentials we have deferred your application to the regular admission cycle to be reconsidered with the full applicant pool. We hope to make most admission decisions by April, and appreciate your understanding and patience as we continue to review files. We will let you know as soon as we have made a final decision on your application. In the meantime, we send you our best wishes for a very happy new year. "

Good Luck!

Thanks Jetlag for the information.

May I ask when you received your email from CLS re application complete? I haven't heard anything from them yet (notified of app complete in early Nov). Getting a bit anxious...

I handed in my application end of October but my LSAC report reached CLS only mid/end of November. So my application was complete at a rather late date.

Just a side note: Really: Forget about the LSAC evaluation. As long as you are above avg, you are good enough. The whole package matters. Not many are admitted during the early review.

And please also take notice: Columbia is tough. Really hard work. So, if you consider to taking a year of rather, you might wanna reconsider your choice;-)

Congrats to those you who have been admitted - that's fantastic! Wow - a call from the dean, that's pretty cool ;-) An early Christmas present!

I unfortunately have to wait a few more months as, unfortunately, I didn't make the early action deadline. I'm hoping that there will be a decent number of spots open for the regular cycle and that I get in. Fingers crossed.

Wow! Great to hear your acceptance, congratulations! I haven't received anyword-- is that a good or a bad sign?

Are acceptances made over telephone as well, or shall I wait for an email just the same?

Here we go!
