I'm signed up and have booked my flight for NYU's April ASW (April 10-11). :? It seems I lost hope on Berkeley too soon. :(

I don't think you can go wrong here :) I visited NYU last weekend and I'm sure you'll have a blast!

Thanks!! I'm really excited to visit NYU! The outreach to admitted students so far has been incredible!

If it makes you both feel better I haven't heard back from any schools yet, and have yet to even go complete at 3/10 of them.

I submitted late as hell, but still lol.

Oh no man... I'm mad chill. Got 6 acceptances, & a couple waitlists already. The only two that I'm waiting for that I actually care about are Duke and Cornell.

You know, I wasn't even concerned with having to send in an updated final transcript to Cornell through LSAC until I realized that the GPA drop would probably hurt me more with Duke than Cornell, and honestly, Duke would be better for me than Cornell.

Is this for acceptance considerations?

Yeah... I'm scared sending the score to LSAC will already hurt my already slim chances with Duke. Ah well. Might as well send it in... According to LSN, I have a better chance with Cornell anyways.

Admitted to Berkeley yesterday morning. Very happy. It was my first decision since getting PR'd at Duke.

Still waiting on 9 schools.

Congrats to everyone as well. I just got in a huge argument with my mom because I told her I was thinking about bowing out of this cycle and retaking the LSAT. Her reaction was pretty :roll:

She just doesn't get it.

I wonder if NYU is 21 because of its strong PI focus.
