I did receive an emailed rejection. Since the wording is so polite and I really just had to apply because of the "what if" factor, I'm not bitter. I don't have access to gmail at work, so I can't c&p, but this is what it said:

Dear Ms. [LWoods],

The Committee on Admissions has carefully considered your application. I regret to inform you that we are unable to offer you admission to the New York University School of Law. We expect more than 8,500 candidates to compete for admission this year, which means that the Committee must make difficult choices.

We hope you understand that our decision on your application is not an estimate of your potential as a law student or an attorney. Since the vast majority of our applicants are clearly capable of success in law school and beyond, we inevitably must turn away many whom we expect will succeed in law simply for lack of space in our class. Please accept our best wishes for your educational and professional success.

Sincerely,
[Signature image]
Kenneth J. Kleinrock
Assistant Dean for Admissions


If most people only get the snail mail, maybe I got the email because I'm an alumna of the undergrad? Or because two of my LOR writers are Law alumni?

Anyway, hope those who haven't gotten an e-mail with Decision Letter Sent receive good news ASAP! I still love NYU and am happy to answer any questions about life in the village (via PM, this thread is too monstrous to follow ;)).

what a pleasant e-mail. I love NYU

To those receiving the email ding... how long ago did you submit? And did your status checker change to decision letter sent?
Sorry guys :(

I really really really hope not. But it's starting to seem quite likely, especially in light of the recent rejections. Well goodbye NYU...it was nice dreaming about you...

And sorry to Lwoods and Lee:(

That has to be an epic application fail. Dude applied and got axed 6 weeks later with a 3.4/172 from HYP...M/A URM? Something smells wrong.


It's true! Received the letter last night.

Some of the finer points of my application:
-Two LSAT scores, first one in the lower 160s
-I'm a graduate student in an engineering discipline at T14
-1 letter from former academic advisor, 1 from former employer

Honestly, I'm interested in pursuing a joint degree at the school I'm currently at, so my heart wasn't set on NYU. I think that may have come through in the application.


So you received a snail-mail letter rejection? Did your status checker say "Decision Letter Sent"? If so, what date?

Ok sorry everyone for the outburst. When I am flooded with emotion, it's hard not to express it in all caps. But seriously, I can't even believe it and I really hope that it's real and that we can trust the ASW. I want my letter!

Yeah, I feel the same way. I'm not sure if I'm more shocked about finally getting into the site or about the fact that I was the first one on here to discover it. I was just reloading this page and expecting that somebody would post an all-caps scream once they were in. But I had the honor myself!

Congrats to all the admits today, and sorry to all the WLs/dings.

Any other December submitters here sitting on a 1/7 and 1/21 UR date? Solidarity!

I think the 14th or the 18th. I don't remember because I only have enough room on my tracking whiteboard for one entry per school, and the UR notation was erased to make room for DLS on 1/21!

I went UR 1/18 and submitted on 12/26:)
