Are you a scholarship person too?

Weren't you one of the first to hear about NYU as well due to your dad? (which was pretty awesome, btw)

ASWs are March 4-5 or March 25-26. They also sent the login information for the admitted students website but it's not unique to the applicant.

If you don't mind my asking? Minority or legacy? What type of undergrad? Cornell-range, perhaps? Where was the decision letter mailed to?

My stats are almost identical to yours and I am still waiting!!!

In, in this mail cluster. No scholarship, but with my LSAT not surprised. I'm just happy right now... very, very happy. A little disappointed at the Wed/Thurs Admitted Students event... but at this point my motivation for work is reaching negative territory and blowing it off sounds like a good idea.

Not a URM or a legacy -- undergrad at a top public school + decent softs -- undergrad ECs, graduate degree, several years of relevant WE...

In all honesty, I was (pleasantly) surprised -- I was a little bit skeptical when I got a fee waiver offer from them this fall, but applied anyway.

I'm supposed to be interviewing for some scholarship called the 'Richmond' (I think?...I haven't read the letter; it was delivered to my house up north, so my little sister read it to me a few days ago). Anyone know anything about this? It's supposed to be a half scholly if received or so....?

I'm in! I got the acceptance packet in the mail yesterday. RD, 177/3.4... I'm still kind of surprised because I wasn't expecting to get in, but I'm definitely not complaining! Oh, and I didn't get anything about scholarships at all.

Congrats! I received my packet yesterday and got the same invitation to interview. Its the Richard Paul Richman Leadership Fellowship and I can't find any information about it anywhere on the tubes. I'm adding my plea for any information on this.

Just wondering... has anyone in the Southeast received anything yet (specifically Georgia)? Or are you still waiting until Monday for decisions to get outside of the NY area?

I know I could just wait around for the mail to come tomorrow but I've been having nightmares about receiving this decision, so any info to calm my nerves (or not) would be greatly appreciated! thanks : )

Either CLS mail has been taking its time getting up here or... ding

i don't think anyone outside of nyc should be getting worried yet - when i was waiting on nyu, there were people in texas getting their acceptances as much as a week before i finally got mine - snail mail is so weird and unpredictable - don't think there's anything to worry about til the end of this week/beginning of next week

I feel vindicated. And less blonde.

PS my vindication comes with a big FU to Prodigy and Mal, thanks guys. :roll:

Yes, I think they said up to $200 dollars for bus/air/rail. Receipts need to be received by March 31.
