As someone else asked, were your requirements replaced by a blank "tuition received" box? Also, can you share your status update dates again please


To those who asked, this was followed by a ding. Good luck to those still in the running.

Although I am late to the party, I thought I would chime in. I have really appreciated reading everyone else's stories, and it's time I shared mine.

Tier 2 close to NYC
3.85
School doesn't rank but has a 3.0 curve. (probably pretty obvious which school now)

I am from the South but worked 2 years abroad and speak another language. This summer, I am working in-house at a big company. I want to stay in New York because I am interested in working on international mergers and aquisitions or corporate (both). I hope to work abroad at some point. I have only applied to Columbia and NYU - I figure Fordham isn't worth losing my high GPA and super cheap tuition/scholarships. Current law school has pretty good placement for the top students at big firms.

NYU should be receiving the (third) official LS transcript today. If not, I am going over there and handing it in myself - probably should have already done this after the first one was "lost in the mail". THAT has been the biggest hassle. Hopefully I'll be complete/U/R by the end of the day. Hope it's not too late! You all have such indimidating stats!

Same here, status went to 7/12 UR w/ college questionnaire checked off. Now, the only thing is undergrad transcript... I still don't know why they don't accept the LSAC report's version. I guess they want to verify my horrible undergrad grades. Well, at least it's still under review.

Interesting...My status updated to Decision Letter Sent, but I've also had the Tuition Deposit box for a couple of days.

I'm out of the country so have no phone. Ding or no ding?

I don't think the tuition box means anything at all. It's the Decision Letter Sent you're looking for.

I think it does. I don't think the people who were dinged had that box.

The Tuition Box is the one that matters, at least that is what they implied on the phone to me the other day. They said, "well, we can't confirm acceptances/denials over phone, but we wouldn't put the tuition thing there unless we thought we would eventually receive a tuition deposit from you..."

It is okay, FlanSolo, we all still love you. Also, the tuition box was followed up with a UPS package that can't be sent to PO Boxes, and dings come via regular USPS snail mail.

fu2009 - sounds like we go to the same school. Hopefully we both make it in. Good luck!

I think now we know that if you get Decision Letter Sent but no Tuition Deposit box, that means DING DING DING.

Right?

I think so, but I think they also send you an email for a ding.

I hope that is true. My status just changed to "Decision letter sent" 7/12 to go along with my "Tuition Deposit Received" box. Hope that is a good thing.

I'm on the west coast, though, so it may take me a little while to find out for sure.

I'm still waiting for my application to go complete. I applied the last week of June. I just barely sent the transcripts they needed a couple of days ago (I had no idea they couldn't use the CAS ones), but when I talked with them, they said they would still review the application before those got there, as long as they had fresh ones before I started.
