So I'm going to ask my question here. When you get an email notifying you that Toby Stock intends to call, what does that mean? Does it pretty much mean that you're in, or is this a legitimate interview that you should be nervous about?

I applied early decision to Columbia, and I'm looking forward to hearing back from them in the next few weeks. Not to count my chickens, but my prospects are looking mighty fine. However, I know that, if Columbia accepts me, I'm supposed to withdraw my other applications. How long do I have to do that? A day? A week?
If accepted, I'll be very excited to matriculate at Columbia. The only problem is, I'm more than a little curious to know where else I could get in, and my mom really wants to know if I'm Harvard material. I'm not entertaining thoughts of going there - I'd just like to see if I could get in. Absolute vanity. So do I have a grace period in which I can let my other applications sit, just so I can see if I get any other acceptances? How immediate does that "immediate" withdrawal of other applications have to be?

So tonight I got an email that said I'd been accepted for admission to Duke Law. However, in the next paragraph, it said that I "will be officially admitted to Duke Law when [they] conclude the scholarship review process," and that I would either need to apply for financial aid/ merit scholarships or waive access to the scholarship program, before I get my "official" acceptance in January.
Is this how most acceptance letters look? If this isn't an "official" acceptance, then what the hell is it? Should I tell my mom that I got in, or should I keep my mouth shut until January in case they rescind their offer (since it's not yet "official")?

I was looking through my portfolio on LSDAS, and I noticed that no where can I find a copy of my transcripts (which were sent and processed in early September). All I could find was a document that stated my LSDAS calculated GPA, the number of As and Bs I got, the averages for my school, class rank, etc. No individual classes and grades were listed (as on my school transcript). Am I to believe that law school adcomms never see my coursework and the grades I received for individual classes? Is there another transcript that LSDAS sends to law schools, and if so, where can I view it?

I sent in my application today (11/7/08) and the deadline is (11/15/08). Doesn't it take like 3 weeks to go complete? I think I might be a screw up.

I feel like answering this question can only hurt me, so I don't see why I should furnish the Fordham admissions committee with this information. Can I leave it blank? Also, do I have to tell them if I'm applying ED to another school?

I have Northwestern, Duke, University of Texas, University of Virginia, and UCLA. What else is out there?

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Columbia vs. NYU: Thoughts?

I plan on applying Early Decision to one of these schools, and I have a few questions about their academic climate and opportunities. I would appreciate it if any current or recent NYU or Columbia students would PM or email me, so I could ask a few questions. Thanks!

Perhaps the public schools?
I just want to know so I don't waste my time waiting around for a fee waiver that's never going to come.
