Still waiting as well. The question now is why the long wait as majority of other programs have given out their decisions, including HLS and SLS.

Anybody can shed some light on this?

Anybody can shed some light on this?

One possible reason that I can think of is the fact that a lot of those who have been given offers of admission have not yet decided on accepting or rejecting. The offer letter would specifically state whether 1. an applicant cannot be given financial aid; or 2. an applicant will need to wait for financial aid offer (in which case, such applicant is not given any deadline until Graduate Legal Studies has already sent out the financial aid offers). But those belonging to the first category are already given a specific date. Most applicants however, wait it out until the very last day (i.e. deadline) to act on their offer (i.e. to accept or reject).

Thanks Bluecrown. Do we know the deadline for those in the first category above?

First April, GP1981. I have already rejected my offer though.

My offer email says this

"We hope to make financial aid decisions soon and will notify you as soon as we have made a decision on your application. At that time we will also let you know when your tuition deposit will be due."

So I think I have no deadline but it is a problem because I cannot arrange my money in 2-3 days (if I get less financial aid)

Still waiting too. Has anyone received any news regarding the human rights scholarship? Have those decisions been made already?

I believe that if you don't have an urgent deadline is better to wait. I don't know if this "expedite decision" will negatively impact my outcome. I just needed to do it to make an informed decision. Otherwise, I would have just waited.


Hi, I wanted to ask you if they answered you? Duke has just offered me admission but I have to confirm by April 1st and they told me they will see if they will be able to offer some financial aid this week... really dont know what to do. Besides I have received an offer form NYU but without financial aid...

They never replied to my request for a deadline extension. I also called and they told me the admissions people are on spring break. Looks like we are not getting any decisions this week :(

I am worried we might be waiting this week and the next only for a rejection letter....

I think it's okay to ask for a deadline extension if you don't hear from them until the 1st.

Hey all,

I called Columbia yesterday.

I was informed that admissions are, indeed, on a rolling basis. Once they review your application, they will let you known if you got admitted or rejected. They do not hold rejections.

I also inquired about the expedited admission process. After we request an expedited decision, it takes about a week to get any news from Columbia. One must state the reasons for the expedited decision request. If you got accepted in another university, you must include in the email the offer from another university with a deadline. The Admission Counsellor confirmed that expedited decisions have no impact on the admission process. In other words, it won't influence one's acceptance or rejection.

We discussed my case. The earliest deadline for a school that I got accepted is April 14. She suggested me to wait until a week before the deadline to request an expedited decision. Otherwise, there are no grounds for such request.

Good luck everyone! Like many of you, I hope ro hear from Columbia soon.

Well I've been admitted to NYU with a Dean's Award, I have to accept the offer until April 1st, so I'll probably request for an expedited decision today or tomorrow, I would really prefer not to, even if it means paying the $500 reservation fee to NYU...

Hi everyone: This blog has been really helpful to me, so I want to share my experience with those who are still waiting. I asked for an expedited decision last Sunday and I got admitted today. Good luck to everyone!
