I know for a fact that they have sent rejections (both referring to the early review and regular cycle), so we just have to wait.....

Are they informing people of the rejections by email or are they sending letters?

Thanks Lemonde. What inference do you believe can be drawn if one has heard nothing at all from them yet? I suppose that it is slightly positive sign considering that rejections have been sent out.

I also think it is slightly positive although applicants with strong credential have been already notified with admissions.
I also know that Columbia, as other law school, has wailist but I haven't heard anything this year about it?
Do you?

Does anybody have any idea when the second wave of results from Columbia will be declared? As I understand, currently several people have still not heard anything from Columbia.

Well I haven't heard anything, so I sent them an email with my name and the date on which I received confirmation of receipt of all my materials which was the 4th of Jan.

This was the reply:

"As stated in all of our application materials and on the website, our admissions are made on a rolling basis from late December through late April. When a decision is made on your file, we will notify you by email.
Thank you for your patience in this process."

Nothings come through for me yet, so its just a wait tlll the email, I guess....

Well, this explains why I haven't heard from them yet. Nonetheless I'm hopeless because they have admitted so many people already that I don't think there are still many spots available.
Let's wait and see

Have they? From what I understand there are still a large pool of people who have got absolutely no news from them yet. Any further updates?

hi guys,

just wanted to share my experience.

I got the application complete notification on December 28, 2007. Thereafter I heard nothing from CLS.
Last week I wrote to CLS requesting a decision as I have been granted admission to Upenn and have to pay their deposit by April 1st. I got the same automated reply as Ruma, that decisions are made on a rolling basis. I then called them and spoke a very helpful lady. She asked me to foward my Penn admission email to them so that they may expedite the decision process on my file. Once I did that, I heard from CLS within 2 hours with a decision on my file. Unfortunately, the decision was a rejection.

I got the feeling that some decisions are made but not communicated. For example, in my case, I doubt the admission committee could have reviewed my file within 1-2 hours of my email and the decision had probably already been made (although not communicated to me).

Maybe calling up helps, specially for those with other deadlines. Goodluck!

If anyone has received admission/rejections from CLS can he/she post such info on this thread?
I'm starting to feel worried about my chances to get into the program.

Hi!

I submitted my application on the early review deadline and then, on late December, I received an e-mail with a referral to the normal admissions cycle. Since then, I haven´t heard a thing. Is anybody on the same situation??

Cheers!

Most of us are in the same situation, pipo )

Following the Lemonde1978's post it would be interesting to hear any update on admissions/rejections here...

Anyone please...
