I think I was UR on about 7/1 and changed to "Decision Letter Sent" on 7/7. On 7/8 I received a mailed acceptance (I'm in NY), but only after I had been contacted via email by someone who had transferred to NYU from my school. That person had been asked by NYU to offer me advice.

I have to get my deposit in by tomorrow to participate in their OCI and rather not eat the money. I just really don't like my school and my transfer chances are starting to look not so great.



I am in the exact same position. I decided to bite the bullet and make the deposit. For me the decision came to the meager OCI's at my 1l school. Doesn't do much good to have good grades and killer softs if you can't tell anybody about it in an interview.


Yeah I just can't justify going there. My rank (#7) should get me solid interviews at our OCI... even if it's not the market I want to be in.

Oh well - let's hope for some more acceptanceS!

If I was in your situation, meaning if my school had more than 2-4 firms at OCI, then I would make the same decision. Something I probably should have looked into more closely last year.

Harvard, anyone, anyone? Is this the equivalent of a transfer waitlist? If so, I hope all of you admits go to Yale. Or maybe, you should just reconsider transferring in the first place. I hear Cambridge is filled w/ wild dogs and roving gangs of violent toddlers.

Also in at Columbia!!! via email at 5:37; T2 top 1%.

feeling good after letting the deposit deadline pass at GULC and being rejected by H and UVA.

Now just waiting on NYU and Penn.... will withdraw from Penn though for everyone else.

for anyone else wondering - status checker never changed from complete. still says complete. deposit deadline is July 18. went complete in mid-late june.

Congrats to everyone who got in CLS! I'm still "completion pending". Will probably give them a call Friday to see if there's anything missing.

Well if the deposit deadline is 7/18 at Columbia, I guess they will wait and see what the yield is on Monday before selecting any more people.

They will cut you off by saying something like "you shouldn't contact us until it has been two weeks since the submission of the last piece of material."

God forbid you are actually worried that something might not have made it there.

Pretty sure by Friday it will have been two weeks for me.
