hope so.

to those (or the one person) who received a decision from NYU...when did you submit your app/go complete, and would you care to share your approximate #'s? i'm still UR there (dated 6/27), but am eagerly awaiting an update. thanks...

My stuff has been with them for close to a month now. I sent pretty much all supplemental materials throughout May and early June, and submitted the app itself in mid-June. It went to UR around June 24th, but reverted back to processing, perhaps because I sent in a new LOR. Now it says UR as of 7/1 (or else it did before it changed to "decision letter sent" yesterday"). Now I'm just awaiting the result. Wish they did it like Penn and just sent an email given the time crunch involved here. I come from a T25 and I am around top 10%.

inclined to agree with this as well, given the numbers of people who were accepted and the fact that they are clearly not sifting through applications in order received, though this might just be wishful thinking : )

It all seems really random actually. Last year one of the first admits was 3.61 at ccn and then top 1% people admitted 8 days later.

Penn needs to jump in here and send more acceptances today... and one of those acceptances needs to be to me!

Thanks, tww909! This is helpful. I am praying that I too get the lucky e-mail acceptance today. :wink:

Oh wow, now I'm excited (and nervous). I went UR 7/1 as well, and my decision was mailed yesterday as well. I hope they don't mail out acceptances and rejections on the same day. Though your stats are way higher so it could totally go 2 diff ways for us. Did they inform you that you were accepted in advance, via email or something? Or did it just say "decision letter mailed" and it just happened to be an acceptance?

But can you log into the admitted students section of the site? Thats the only thing really worrying me.

I got an e-mail telling me I was finally complete yesterday morning. (I bugged them a lot cause they were the last to get all my stuff.)

Got a voicemail (because OF COURSE I miss the call the one time I'm not staring at my phone) at about 12:15 today.

70s, top 1-2% FWIW.

The site said it was mailed on the 7th. I don't know about any accepted student's site because my folks got the package (which they told me was gigantic). Congrats to all the NYU acceptances and maybe I'll see you there in a month's time
