Has anyone been waitlisted or rejected? Still waiting for my answer and wondering if all acceptances have already been sent?

I am still waiting. I don't think you have to worry yet.

Do not worry. Last year a lot of the admission decisions (including admissions and rejections too) was communicated only in April.

I am waiting too. Considering the reactions of applicants in the previous year, I suppose most of the admission will be released in mid March.

Hi! I am also waiting.
Did you receive an e-mail from them to schedule a telephone interview?
I know some Japanese applicants received such e-mail and I wonder if it was sent only to applicants whose TOEFL score fall below their targets.

Does anyone know if not submitting a TOFEL score in any way impacts your application for LLM? I had got a TOFEL waiver from the college in writing , which I had appended to my application.

I did not receive any e-mail. I don't know this is because I got more than 105 points.

Thank you for your reply!
Yeah, I knew that you got high TOEFL score from your profile page.
I asked this because I wanted to see if I was making a good guess.
If you received an interview request as well, my guess is obviously wrong.
I think I can be more relaxed now.
Thanks!

I didn’t submit my TOEFL score and was told that I needed to apply for a TOEFL waiver which was granted by Columbia since the medium of instruction for my undergraduate degree was English. Haven’t received a reply as yet though.

I don't think it does. CLS would've granted you the TOEFL waiver only upon being satisfied that you possess the relevant level of proficiency in English to be able to handle the LLM program. It shouldn't be a factor in determining whether you are eligible to be admitted to the LLM program.

The early-review thing turned out to be a big sham, I must say. The status tracker states that early-review applicants would receive a decision by end of December. It's already February and most of the regular cycle applicants have already been admitted.

Extremely unfair on the part of the university.
