Stanford is the king of all schools, law or otherwise, in my book.

^Agreed.  I love Stanford.  Columbia, though, is also an awesome school.  I don't know what the chances of getting in off the waitlist are, but good luck.  Either way, though, you have great options.

From what I heard, they do admit a good amount of people from the waitlist. I heard this from a current student and any basic LSN search will show you the same. I think the chances of getting in depend on if a person with a similar profile to you decides to withdraw or defer a year.

It seems that Columbia does better on the east coast when it comes to biglaw- but of course it's probably due to self selection.
