The Harvard waitlist (which actually gets used) starts seeing movement in May, so it is definitely possible that some of these people will get picked up by HYS - hopefully opening spots for some of you!!!
Well, they don't sound very much like "committed NYU people," then. Or else they'd tell HLS to shove it.
Haha true, but I meant committed as in "I sent in the deposit and given all of the current options that are realistically in front of me NYU is my choice." That fun fuzzy gray area that can possibly give WLers a small glimmer of hope.
I specifically know someone in this situation...*cough*
Edit: Absent a full ride to NYU, anyone qualifying for need based aid would be financially wise not to tell HLS to "shove it." Just sayin'
The "absent a full ride to NYU" qualification to your assertion is quite specifically relevant to at least two people involved in this little exchange.
(Also, if you're committed to public interest, the quality of NYU's program and of their LRAP make that "financially wise" calculation tricky, with or without a full ride.)
