12/27/17: Had an admissions interview with Columbia Law School. It was very casual and essentially served as an opportunity to express my goals as a law student and future practitioner as well as allowed me to answer application specific questions from the admissions officer, ask questions to her about the school/program and provide them with anything that I wanted them to know as they reviewed my application. Hopefully I will hear from them soon.

12/29/17: ADMITTED TO COLUMBIA LAW SCHOOL EARLY DECISION! I now have to withdraw my pending applications and turn down the current offers that I have currently. I will update my scholarship (if any) when I am notified.

Sometime between Jan 3-13: Received a nice handwritten letter from the Admission's Team indicating that formal materials would arrive by the end of the January along with a cute little drawstring bag. Such a nice gesture as I've been anxiously waiting for my deposit information, etc. to arrive.

@badluck thank you! It did seem really fast though i totally agree but i guess since they say ED decisions will be by the end of December they have to make sure they send everything out before month end
