Have recipients been notified yet? If not, do any recent graduates know when this info is likely to come out?

Although emails were sent last year on the 8th, honors were available via unofficial transcript on the 1st. So check that regularly.

Does NYU not give any honors to rising 2Ls the way Columbia gives Stone and Kent? It seems helpful for OCI to have some honors for rising 2Ls.

The top ten students after 1L are designated Pomeroy Scholars.

That's not helpful to the vast majority of students

Still it must be kind of annoying to grade on to law review but not be Pomeroy...

When this happens to you it will probably just ruin the rest of your summer, won't it? :wink:

Um if you have law review grade on grades but not Pomeroy, I think employers will manage to read between the lines of your transcript and know that you are somewhere above median...

Does anyone know if graduation (latin) honors went up today too? My GPA was on the cusp, and I am wondering if this means I missed the boat.

Latin not up yet, don't give up hope. Looks like it was just the 2L honors.

Thank you. I'm not terribly hopeful, since it seems the threshold keeps going up, but it is good to know it hasn't been posted yet.

Exceedingly good use of the anon feature and the legal employment forum, chums. NYU continues to impress.

What do you think "on the cusp" is?

I assume everyone above 3.5 is hoping they get it and thinks there's a chance.

Yeah... I read somewhere it was in the mid-3.5 range, but don't remember if that was on the old curve or not.
