I have a couple of questions for anyone who did the write-on competition for transfer students applying to Columbia (I know at least one person in here participated):
1. Did you get a confirmation email from them when you submitted your write-on packet? I didn't, and didn't think anything of it at the time, but now I'm wondering. . .
2. Did anyone get an acceptance call from the law review? From what I have gleaned from reading this thread, CLS has yet to make any offers of admission to any potential transfer students, so I'm wondering if the law review is waiting until people have been admitted to extend offers.
Missed this one. I did the LR competition. I didn't get a confirmation. In fact, I got an auto out-of-office reply, so I forwarded my packet to another editor and said the auto-reply made me nervous. He said "Got it" and that was the last I heard of them. I thought the competition was relatively easy, especially after completing Harvard's monster. But I did not get a call on the 3rd or on the 6th, which is when they were supposed to extend the offers. This can only mean that I did not succeed.
Okay, yeah, that's all I got was the auto out-of-office reply. I know they were supposed to extend offers about a week ago, but I guess I'm just wondering if they're waiting to extend offers until people are admitted to the law school (as far as I can tell, no one has been admitted yet — am I right on that?). It would be kind of strange to get a "Congratulations, you're on law review!" phone call and subsequently get a "We regret to inform you that we cannot offer you admission" email from the law school.
BTW, my application finally went compete today. One of the boxes is still unchecked, but it says complete, and I talked to admissions the other day and they told me they'd received the item that was unchecked.
