Hey there numbers twin. Good luck with the Columbia ED! I'll be watching your cycle closely...hopefully it will be a good one for us 166's and high 3.9ers.

Well, from what I gather from looking at last year, you and I will probably start to hear back around mid december. But who knows, maybe we'll get lucky and hear back this month. I check my e-mail and mailbox everyday holding my breath haha. This is NOT good for my health! What's your next choice after Columbia? (Besides Harvard obviously). I would love to end up some where like berkeley or chicago, get away from the east coast. But i'll take whatever i get !

Hey! I also have an interview with Georgetown coming up and I haven't found many other people who were also asked to interview. Do you know who yours is with? Also, do you know what it means? I can't figure why some people with the same LSAT/GPA were chosen and some not. Anyway, pleaselet me know if you any info at all about the interview. Thanks!

Hey, yea same numbers, but your soft and undergrad trump me. I'm sure Cornell is yours for the taking - BTW, did your status check switch to "EA Deferral" yesterday? A lot of people have been experiencing this and I'm wondering if it may be a glitch... We'll see.

It was a glitch. Some error switched a bunch of people to "Deferral." But we got switched back. So is Columbia your undergrad? Just thinking that might be your reason for EDing there...

  • Hi

Thanks for getting back to me! I had my interview last Thursday in person. It only took a few days from when I accepted the interview to when the alum contacted me. I think it may be because she is a judge so she has 3 clerks working for her and it was one of the clerks that e-mailed me. However, my status check still says interview. The judge told me she was writing them right away so I don't know if I'm complete and they haven't updated it or what. Anyway, it's annoying that you haven't heard anything yet but I think it's worth it in the end. I had a really great interview experience and I'm sure you will too!

I don't know man, I'm going crazy with desire for them, though. My eight weeks is up this Friday, so I'm hoping they won't make me wait any longer... Congrats on your acceptances thus far! I visited Cornell two years ago and it's beautiful.

Ah man, I'm really sorry about your hold. It's crazy that your numbers and work experience weren't enough... If it's any comfort, it seems like a lot of other very strong applicants got put on hold today. Ugh, now I'm really nervous. Nothing has changed for me yet :(

From what a woman from Georgetown admissions told me, the interviews are a new part of their applications process designed to help them make distinctions among a narrow group of borderline candidates. I got the feeling that the majority of interviewees would probably be admitted; just maybe not in the first wave. In any case, perhaps we are both headed to Cornell.

that's such a bummer about northwestern! we have similar numbers and when i enter i'll have about 2 years WE too... i haven't heard but am getting really nervous. you didnt apply ED right? did your letter say they wont look at you again until may or that you'll hear again by may?

  • Just went to decision at GULC!

Just as I got a scanned version of my deferral in December, I received an e-mail in the early afternoon on Monday from 'Admit', which had a pdf of my acceptance letter attached. Oh, and congrats on Cornell and Boalt. Maybe I'll see you in Berkeley next weekend.
