HAHAHAhahaha.

And I'm going home to check now. Every time I check the mailbox and find it empty I feel like I hit a new low.

YES! exactly what i was hoping they'd use the time machine for:

NO i have the same sent date, as does an earlier poster. let's hope it's good news! even more hopeful, maybe they sent our letters on 12/3 with the others and we'll hear really soon...

Does Nyu have a mail department. Maybe the admissions office just passed them along to be mailed.

I live in NYC approx. 10 min away from the law school campus. Rushed home after work this afternoon to check the mailbox b/c my status updated to "decision letter sent" this afternoon. Nothing. Here's hoping for tomorrow...

Early Nov. or Oct. people without decision mailed should expect rejects or wait lists right?

I don't think so at all. So far NYU's mainly been admitting auto-admits, EDers, or URMs. Most of the people either have high GPAs, high LSATs, or both. So I figure in a few days or so (hopefully), NYU will start admitting some of the more borderline applicants.

OPTIMISM! :D

i really hope i'm right

Certainly possible, although I just don't see why they would go in that order - it's not like the auto-admits are going to have decided by the time they send out acceptances to the borderline candidates.

They're probably protecting their medians/25/75 first. They're stocking up on high GPAs and LSATs so they have room to know how many and which borderline applicants they can accept.

They usually like to make their decisions for borderline candidates once they have a better feel for the applicant Pool as a whole. It's quite normal for borderline applicant to have to wait longer.

NYU's admission's office I'm sure can estimate the relative number of auto-admits they give offers to will attend or go elsewhere, so of course they will extend offers to more borderline applicants, unless all of a sudden this year NYU beats out CLS for overlapping applicants, which I don't think is likely.

Gotcha. Sorry I'm just a little pessimistic. I'm ED and UR 10/20 :(
