Columbia LLM - 2020-2021 Applicants

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.



Hi, can you please share the link with the form we should fill out for an expedited decision. Thnx!



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.

"As we are now working remotely, the procedure for requesting an expedited financial aid decision has changed. If you have an impending deadline from another school, please complete this online form. The Committee will endeavor to prioritize any such requests by the other schools’ deadlines."

- I think this was sent to admitted students re financial aid decisions only, but the link does have the option re admission and FA decision expedition. Good luck!

Current cls LLM student here. Here is my brutal suggestion. Do not plan your LLM this year. While there are many certainties in life, COVID is not to be taken lightly. You can withdraw and focus on working for one more year before coming. This is a huge investment to come with so many uncertainities.

Will any college grant such a blanket deferral to a sizeable number of students?

I doubt it very much. They will lose a lot of money if they do that. You will just have to apply next year with an additional recommendation.

If I got accepted, I need an additional recommendation to re-apply?

Did you ask for expedited admissions decision alone or fid you ask for scholarship decision also to be expedited? If yes, did they offer any? I ask this because I also applied through that link (hope you did the same?) on Monday and still don’t have a decision. Quite tensed.

Yes. Check the FAQ.


It is my understanding that this only applies to reapplicants not admitted or the ones that apply prior to the last period, the FAQ does not mention anything about reapplicants admitted that submitted their application in the last year.
