Did anyone else notice in the "LSAT/GRE" section of the application they only give you spots to enter two scores? I have three, so I guess I'll have to call and ask how they'd like me to fill that part out. Weird that they ask for it when LSAC sends the scores to them anyway.
I was coming here to ask this, what did they tell you?

Just an update: I asked about this and was told to just pick my two most recent. They said it’s not a big deal either way since they’ll receive all my scores as part of the application.

Has anyone gotten (or successfully solicited) a fee waiver from CLS?
Hey! I got a fee waiver last cycle worded in the most Ivy League way ever. It said something like “you got a decent lsat so here’s this waiver. We only looked at your lsat so remember that this is still Columbia and doesn’t mean you’re special in any way” haha applied and got waitlisted. Hoping they send me one this year too, best of luck!

I sent them one highlighting both my LSAT (>their 75th) and vet status and they responded with, "hey, fam, fill out this need-based request form like everyone else." Literally the only school to whom I applied who didn't respond positively to a fee waiver request.

Some people are admitted without an interview. An interview is a good sign though!
Did you apply RD or ED?

According to past TLS threads, an interview is either a so-so sign since they normally interview borderline candidates, or a terrific sign since they also interview candidates being considered for named scholarships. Best of luck!

RD. 3.9x, 173. I applied about two weeks ago, so hopefully they don't already think I'm a so-so candidate lmao

Anyone willing to share the kinds of questions Columbia asked on their interview and any impressions you had of the interview in general? Very nervous for mine this week.

Please come back share your experience! You can PM if you would like. There is so little information about CLS interviews, who is conducting them etc..

Just had my Columbia interview. Really enjoyed it; my interviewer was relaxed and actually really funny. I tentatively think it went well!

The standard questions: why law, why Columbia, why NYC, and then one specific to my application. Interview was ~25 minutes.
