Columbia Early Review (2016/2017)


imnc

Hi,

I have a doubt. Just want to know if anyone here is aware of how the classes are carried out, as in, do the LLMs share 'all' their cases with the JD students in the US or is it like the BCL at Oxford where Grads have separate classes? I am aware that some classes in most Ivy League colleges for the LLMs are held with the JDs.


That really depends on the courses. Most but not all (80%) of courses are open to both LLMs and 2/3rd year JD students. A few are normally closed to LLMs but may be obtained with special permission. A few others are LLM-only. There are rules that decide the preference when a course is oversubscribed with LLMs and upper year JDs having preference.

But a mixed class is not really as big an advantage as the marketing people make it appear.

Yes, I totally agree, which is why I asked. Would any day prefer an LLM only class. So, is it correct that most classes are shared with upper JDs?

Yes, that's correct. In your fall semester there will be a couple of LLM-only classes, at least for the NY Bar courses. Plus there are 2-3 courses each semester open only to LLM students.

Hi,

I had a query regarding the enrollment decision. My offer email (I applied for early review) doesn't state any date by which I need to register my enrollment decision. Does anyone know by when we are required to register?

May I ask when you applied and when your application was complete?

Hi Jlybnn ,

I applied on December 01, 2015 and I got the admission email on January 17.

I also have friends from previous years who heard only in end April. so there's no way to really know!

Hi,

Have any of the other early review admitted students received notifications about financial aid decisions or enrollment date deadlines? I received the official admission package a few weeks back, but it does not contain the above information either.

Early Review applicant here. Last December, my application was deferred to the regular cycle for decision. I have not heard from Columbia after then. It appears that a lot have already been admitted, rejected, and even waitlisted. Do I still have a shot of getting in? Any others similarly situated?
