Application status: First RD (admitted) Wave - Jan. 18, notification via email

Looking at last year's LSN info:

They had their first wave (admits only) 1/19, then another 1/21 and some people the 22nd and 23rd too (including one WL). Next wave came 1/26 (admits only), and seems to have just continued for a couple days. Then there was the first wave of WLers 2/5. First straight up rejection was 2/10.

All that's to say, for anyone worried about not being in this wave, if CLS is sticking to their past schedule (which it seems like there are) there will be QUITE a few more waves of acceptances before the month is over.

Welcome, welcome!

I'm relatively new to TLS so I created this using a few other posts as examples, please let me know if I missed anything that you all think should be in the post. Also, if anyone has some good poll question ideas, let me know. I'm tempted to use a couple from last year's thread, they had a couple fun ones.

I like that in your rankings CLS might somehow be ranked even lower than its USNWR ranking :lol:

Also, I'm an incoming 1L this year so feel free to tag me if you've got questions along the way about the application/interview, etc. Later in the year I can tell you about classes and such if you're interested but there is also a thread where upperclassmen regularly answer questions if you're looking for some of that now.

Does Columbia require a resume? Can't find anything on their website about it.
