Columbia/Regular Action

I am waiting for columbia with an admission letter from NYU...
and I think that I am not the only one in this situation...
so...CLS vs NYU? Almost the same thing, right?

I ask for an expedite decision but they answer:

Thank you for your message. We will send your file to the Admissions Committee for expedited review. While we cannot guarantee that they will be able to make a decision by your deadline, we will make every effort to have a decision by then. As soon as a decision is made, we will notify you by email.

Sincerely,

Congrats!
That does indeed give some hope for those of us still waiting...

If it is not much of an inconvenience, could you tell us a bit of your background and credentials?

Additionally, were you in the waiting list?

I was not on the waiting list. I hadn't heard a thing before I requested an expedite. As for my background and credentials, I was definitely accepted because of my work resume and not my academic record. I attended a boring commuter college for undergrad and graduated in the bottom half of my class from University of San Diego School of Law! I have 11 years of pretty interesting adventures as a Navy lawyer and have been directly involved in a couple very famous events. That had to have been what they liked about my file.

why did you decline? Which school are you going to instead?

My employer is sponsoring me and had already committed me to UPenn. The offer came a few days too late. I should have requested the expedite sooner.
