It is a scholarship. I got that in the mail a week after I got the acceptance letter. :)
Congrats on UT!
Not a fan of Columbia's location (did get a fee waiver there, though). I think ED would really help a splitter like you at Columbia. What's your top choice after C?
Top choice = Stanford Top somewhat realistic choice = UVA That isn't to say getting into UVA means I will go there. I've got to do a lot of research on a variety of schools before deciding. I love Texas and having received a (small) scholarship there it will certainly be something to think about seriously.
On LSAC, there is an account option somewhere about "Release my information to ABA-accredited schools for Candidate Referral Service (CRS)". You have to check yes on that box; through the CRS law schools will send you all kinds of stuff and usually there is a fee waiver (based on your GPA & LSAT scores). The nice thing is that good schools send you stuff, not just the T4 ones. With all that said, it might be too late to get fee waivers through that method. To solicit them directly you'll have to e-mail the admissions office and basically politely ask for one. I did this at one school. I said "Other schools have made offers of fee waivers; I am very interested in your school and I think that given my credentials, including my LSAT and GPA (xxx/y.yy), I hope that I could be considered as a candidate for admission. Would it be possible to obtain a fee waiver?" Or something along those lines. Let me know if you're confused and/or how it goes if you try!
I cant put it any better than my man rsr28 did.
Hey-- Columbia was just a regular letter sized envelope, no email for phone call in addition. I was actually pretty surprised that I wasnt just plain rejected, as I have been watching the numbers of those getting in. If your numbers are correct, im putting money on an acceptance. That 180 should get you in anywhere!
came in the mail (letter 12/3, postmarked 12/6) looking at your stats, your acceptance will be in the mailbox soon
It came today via regular mail...no e-mail or call prior to receiving it. Good luck!
Letter in the mail.
Email today--snail mail is en route.
Columbia ED's timing this cycle's been very diff from prev ones, so I wouldn't spend too much time trying to predict things. The last two batches of ED acceptances have been the prev two Wed. though at ~5PM... so good luck in 3 hours! I hope to see you in the fall! I like your pref of Columbia over Harvard btw ;)
They sent an email 12/11. Thanks and good luck!
good old-fashioned snail mail.
The email came just after 10:00 AM.
Thanks man, no email, just a package at the house.
Just paranoia really. Some people don't want admissions officers browsing their profiles and seeing how their acceptances are turning out.
On Columbia! :)
CONGRATS ON YOUR CYCLE BEING OVER SO EARLY! You're SET! My reaches as I see it are: UVA, UMich, Northwestern, and Cornell - the rest is a crapshoot! My soft factors and letters of rec are VERY strong so that should pull me through on many of them - I guess only time will tell!
1. I just look under application updates. 2. NYU called my dad who got his LLM there. I just got the official letter yesterday. :)
