Congrats! If I remember correctly, the FAQ section of the website related to interviews specifies Eastern time.

Yes, they are. Don't forget that, because they don't mention it on the interview portal or in the reminder email.

Is Columbia revamping its PI offers?

My interview was friendly, conversational, and there was lots of time for my questions.

Based on past threads it looks like Columbia begins accepting RD folks in January. Fingers crossed they move up their timeline!

I went complete on 9/12. GPA above 75th, LSAT just below median.

Are acceptances typically sent via email or mail?

Interview went well! Mostly questions about my background in college and my current job, then a few questions about what kind of law I want to study and what my future plans are.

How worried should I be about not having got an interview request still? I'd put my #s at competitive-but-not-guaranteed, myLSN 86%.

Did you ED? Correct me if I’m wrong here, but I didn’t think interviews were necessary for admission to Columbia? I wouldn’t stress yet (didn’t get one either).

Interviews are not necessary for admission so I wouldn't be too worried if you didn't receive one.

Thanks, that's somewhat calming. I am not ED.

hey friends. i'm a CLS 3L who is a hamilton fellow (full ride). please feel to reach out if you have any questions.
I am curious how Law school housing compares to off campus housing. How did you go about finding your accommodation? It is worth renting from the school vs privately in the same radius? What should we expect with respect to size/monthly rent?

There's 2 kinds of housing CLS provides-university apartment housing (UAH) and law school housing. In general, law school housing is all within a block or two of the law school, I believe most of the units are furnished, and it's more expensive (I think my friend is paying~$1500/1600 for their 3br). UAH, generally, is larger, less expensive, but can be anywhere between 110th and 125th, Amsterdam (I think) to Broadway; definitely a better chance you'll be further from the law school, which is mattering less to me than I originally thought it would.

Getting housing from CLS is really easy; I'd personally recommend getting housing through CLS the first year, unless you happen to already live in NYC/can afford to take the time to apartment hunt in nyc.

I don't remember exactly what the maximum/minimum rent ranges were, but I'm paying around $1,100 for a 2br UAH apartment; my friend is paying ~$2,000 for a law school housing studio, and I'd imagine that's probably the lowest/highest you'll find from CLS.

This is really helpful, thanks! What is the size of your room? Is there a link to floorplans or pictures You can share with us? Their website is not all that helpful. I am interested in layout and size. I saw a short clip of a unit on YouTube. The kitchen was 😱

I interviewed but I haven’t heard much from ED people on here, TLS, or Reddit

Size and layout varies; my room is 184 sqft (I think?). I don't have any floor plans and my room is too messy for a picture. I've seen a few units and none have a kitchen as bad as that. The housing is pretty good, in my opinion, and i'm paying a really reasonable rent! I wouldn't worry too much about housing yet. You'll have a chance to see them in person at the ASW anyways.
