Best of luck, all! I hope your wait comes to an end soon.


Congrats Sahara & OrangeGrandma! Sahara, did you get reviewed twice before getting accepted?


I have no idea. I stopped checking the status checker once I saw my application was complete.

Hey guys! I have a question. I got into Northwestern on Friday and have until this Friday at noon to put down a non-refundable deposit or I lose my seat. NYU is my first choice. Should I call the admissions office at NYU or Northwestern? I really, really don't want to put down a deposit and then lose it.

You can try but 1000 or whatever it is nothing in the long run.

Does NYU have three rounds of acceptances? From what I understand, only the first round has gone out?

pretty sure they might be gearing up for a second round of acceptances -- went under review for the second time today maybe like an hour ago? i don't know if that MEANS anything but based on TLS patterns it might say that they're going through candidates for round two? I don't think they're waiting for the first deposit deadline to pass for those students, it seemed like last year the second round came out on the same day that the deposit deadline was supposed to pass suggesting that the decisions were made before they knew who from the first round woud be joining their class

If status is "decision letter sent" and you can log on to admitted students page, but haven't received a call is that a ding? *impatient poster*

If you can log on to the admitted students page, then shouldn't that mean that you were admitted?

Tend to agree. It doesn't seem to make sense otherwise. I'm not sure why I fell into the temptation to try after seeing this post but am in the same exact boat.

Went UR on the 3rd (maybe it was an update, I don't recall), DLS today in the late morning, and can log into the site but no call or email as of yet.

Hope this helps anyone still waiting on information.

They might be still wrapping up making decisions and are going to call everyone later today.

If you can log in the admitted student page, you are in! I got the phone call several hours after I could log in. It takes a while for the Admissions office to reach to every student.

would you mind sharing your stats and/or approximations of stats?

Peer-ish school transferring primarily personal reasons... in the range of schools where going to NYU would probably, at most, confer network advantages (bigger school, lots more people in NYC) from a career standpoint.

No rank/%ile. Unsubstantiated guess would be top 10%-25%.

when you say peer-ish and no rank, are you referring to a school not necessarily in NY, but in the market?

Hey everyone. I've been lurking on this forum for a few weeks.

I checked my status this morning and it said "Decision letter sent" and I was able to log into the Admitted Students website. I also haven't gotten the call yet.

For the record, my stats are top 25% at a T25 with very strong ties to NY. (Native New Yorker, judicial internship in NY, went to NYU for undergrad).

Just went DLS, no clue if i was accepted -- tried the ASW but i'm pretty sure it just happened less than an hour ago so i'm not sure that backdoor will work yet if it's good news

Sorry if it was unclear...

Peer-ish means T14. I prefer not to be any more specific but apologies for being unclear initially.

Rank refers to my rank within my school.
