Is it a possible outcome that the letter is waitlist? Or would the status checker actually have the balls to tell me I'd been waitlisted? I dislike this "you know a decision has been made but are at the mercy of USPS to find out what it is" thing.



i submitted 12/23, complete 1/4, ur 1/7, dls 1/18, 3.9/171

i have yet to receive the letter but i can log on to the ASW so i assume im in


Did you try the ASW thing ASAP after you got DLS? I'm DLS 1/21 but not getting into ASW, though I'm holding out hope that they just haven't gotten around to putting my info into the ASW thing? Pleasepleaseplease post what your letter says... you'll probably get it today, right?



I think NYU got smart to people that were 1/18 logging in and they didn't like that - because if applicants can find out online, then they might as well just do email or even status checker notifications of decisions. They WANT people to wait for the letter because they probably feel that people receiving letters over email have a higher chance of liking the school based on some type of believed psychology (like believing its more personal?). So maybe they decided to not log anyone in until one week after "decision letter sent" to be safe. loll this is all speculation for the optimists.

But the thing about a 1/18er who could log in and now not being able to log in anymore is seriously strange to me.

just now. yeah. got in.

STOP FREAKING OUT DOODE. YOU'RE FREAKING ME OUT. SYSTEMS CRASH SOMETIMES. haha

The decision letter is sent, they can't intercept the mail carrier so we will know for sure soon. And even if it ends up being a bad letter, at least we all shared this week of pure joy and relaxation.

I agree with glitched. Regardless of what happens in a few days when the USPS delivers the mail, at least we all shared this moment of anxiety together.. and I rather like the company on TLS :)

Last week of October here, and I'm reasonably sure it means WL/ding for me, but really who knows.


I feel this is a moment for precedent cat.

Here he is.

I don't know you..... but, I <3 you..... and, kinda feel like I accomplished something, earning the appearance of precedent cat.
Sidenote re: precedent cat... I teach 8th grade government and used precedent cat to illustrate the word "precedent" when explaining Marbury v. Madison. Whoever is responsible, consider this my attempt at a bibliography...

Precedent Cat is all things lovely and good. Since the LOLCAT joy moved to the Columbia thread, I haven't had many opportunities to use him of late. This saddens me.
