It was one of those cardboard packages that lay flat from UPS. Not sure if you'd call than envelope or not. In it was the purple NYU law folder.

Still haven't heard anything from Admissions. What should be thinking at this point? Do they do dings in email or snail mail?

How long have you been under review? I'm still waiting to hear from them as well. I'd say stay put and hang in there.

UR 7/9, 7/10, 7/11...Nothing since Thursday. Hoping the deposit deadline for the first round opened some spots up.

Let's hope for some movement.

I think the next deposit deadline is this Friday. So perhaps this week folks will be notifying them of withdrawals.

Hmmm...I say wait until after the 19th deposit deadline, then consider inquiring.

Varies. Over the last couple of years, 38-58 enrolled each year.

Edit: clarified my last statement.

This is about that time for the schools that have moved early (NYU, Harvard, Yale, Chi) to wait out their initial admits.

There won't be movement until the second wave.

Columbia however, has barely moved initially so there continues to be updates there.

+1

And, my guess is some admits are awaiting word from Columbia.

So do you think its a somewhat good thing not to have been dinged yet. Meaning I could be on some sort of waiting list?

That theory has been floated in the earlier pages. Could likely be the case. I would feel more confident about that if there had been at least some dings reported on TLS or elsewhere that I knew of.

nyu never dings people. at a certain point you know, sitting in your first 2L class, theyve passed you by. you go on hoping, in some uncertain future, that youll get the call. but by then, even you know its all just one cruel charade

I am not so sure that NYU will be extremely affected by CLS. They each have almost similar stats and positions. The NYU withdraws will more likely be from the YHS crew.

In bizzaro world where I actually had that choice, I might go for Columbia...

My first UR was during the week of the 4th, and then updated transcript information changed the status a couple of times after that. Good luck!
