Columbia LLM - 2020-2021 Applicants


Maria AR

Hi everyone! I’ve been admitted yesterday. My application was complete on January 20.

They already told me that there is no financial aid available. The deadline to confirm attendance for me at least is April 1.


They mentioned that in the email? I guess the admission emails can be different for each individual applicant.


Yes, they’ve mentioned all that information in the same email!

Hi everyone! I just received the admission letter last night (at approximately 11:00 am NY time). So happy to be admitted after such a long wait.

Application submitted: Dec 17;
Application completed: Jan 10;
Received admission: Mar 13.

The ad email mentioned nothing about scholarship... I remember that I did NOT apply for financial aid during my application. I wonder is that means if I do not apply for financial aid, then there will be no chance that I could be considered for scholarships? And so they just didn't mention it in the admission letter?

Today, in one of the email exchanges I had with the GLS, I was informed that the Committee is working remotely.

So guys their process has not halted and thus we should keep our hopes!

Their email said they will entertain requests for expedited review only one week before the deadline of other law schools. So are they already accepting requests for April 1, 2020 deadline?

Additionally, they shared a link with me stating that it has been setup by the Committee since they are now working remotely and that if I want to request an expedited decision then I should fill the form on that link and submit it. I have already submitted it. However, now that you guys tell me it has to be done only a week in advance (and since April 1 is roughly two weeks away) I will do it again exactly a week before.

I think you should send a request for expedited review by email to gls in the first place, with offer from other law school as attachment. Gls will review the email and then send the link to you.
