Hey guys...I have no idea if anyone would have advice on this...

I was recently invited to join Golden Key at my graduate school...is it worth it to add an addendum to my NYU application even though I'm currently listed as "under review"?

Also, I never thought about this, but is it worth saying something about lower grades during the Fall semester of my senior year? My grades have a clear upward trend until that point when I had a death in the family which led to me to have to go home a lot more and to miss class (I think I had a 3.1 that semester).

That's gotta be a good thing, right?


Either it means no other ED people here are in the first round, or for some reason you weren't considered ED and just got in RD.

I'm ED, sent in 11/10, UR 11/17.

173/3.6 Engineering.

Why can't they just let me know in the status checker?!



Congrats!!! I'm 173/3.65 Engineering too!

Still UR 10/20 :(

so many of my numbers twins have gotten in. why not me?

Quick Q: Did anyone with a 12/3 "decision letter sent" status apply for a named scholarship and attach the scholly essay at the same time you submitted the rest of your application?

Why didn't you include an addendum for the fall grades with the app?

I would definitely not mention the Golden Key thing; that will be of no help whatsoever. You may want to submit an addendum for the fall grades, though..

I also just checked, and my status changed to decision sent.

I don't really remember any of the dates, but I submitted in early Sept.

PM for stats.

Wait? So did we all agree that everyone who has "decision letter mailed" on their status checker is most likely to be accepted?

Guys, no one gets rejected in December unless they EDed for the last two years. I don't think they're just going to fuck with us this cycle and are sending out rejections to people with pretty solid #s.

+1 The numbers of ppl with the change are not of ppl who would be rejected in a first wave in December. It means "admitted".

Speaking of which, what kind of numbers do you actually need for NYU scholarships? (I'm sure I'm out, as NYU is a target for me, but just curious!)

I live in nearby suburban NJ (please hold off on the NJ-jokes, haha), and I didn't receive anything from NYU FWIW.

:x Damn this state and its terrible reputation. This is why I'm leaving for law school.
Not really, but I can't wait to get out of here.

I miss the fat cats, but that's all.

ETA: maybe the Mongolian grill too.

Is there any way to check to see if I am officially ED or not? Otherwise I'll just update this once my letter comes this week.
