I just got my purple envelope today as well. NYU is definitely my current top choice out of the schools I've heard back from so far. A Puke Colored Envelope might change my mind though if one arrives in my mailbox sometime in the next couple weeks.

If you get accepted on the first wave, it usually takes slightly more than a month. If you are on the borderline, longer.

Thanks. I'm pretty stoked, it was my first acceptance. I thought it was going to be a denial because of how prompt it was and because it came in a little purple envelope.

What school sends theirs out in a puke colored envelope?

Columbia. Also known as the "VCE", the vomit-colored envelope.

Not this year. After NYU humiliated itself last year by accidentally emailing a bunch of rejected students telling them they were admitted, a bunch of schools switched back to snail mail from email.

Here's an article about it. It wasn't the law school, though, so I don't know if it got any attention here.

I could have sworn in the Columbia thread that people talk about getting the PDF acceptance letter through email...

International students probably do. Most schools that do snail mail will email the letter to people abroad; not sure if that's true of Columbia. But all Columbia acceptances to people in the US are done by snail mail.

Yeah the international applicants get PDF acceptances.

Northwestern recently did the same thing to Kellogg applicants. They refunded the $250 application fee as an apology.

Wouldn't that be a pleasant surprise!
Image the apology letter when they realize their mistake.

Duke Law School wrote:Dear Student,
We apologize for destroying your dreams of attending Duke Law School by not accepting your application. After realizing our mistake, we are begging you to please come back to us. Please accept a full tuition scholarship and living stipend as an apology. We hope to see you next fall!

congrats on your acceptance to NYU!
I actually applied on this exact date and never received a "complete" email. Should I be worried/ call to ask what is going on?

Well I heard from BU today. I got an email alert on my blackberry from them and I presumed it to be a decision since I've been complete for some time now. However, all I got was an email entitled 'a
week in the life at BU law'

UR as well. i wish LSN had an "under review" column on the application timelines, so we could have an idea of how long it will take.
