I still think it's pretty remarkable that we can mail something across the country for less than 50 cents, and that 99 out of 100 times, it gets there when they say it will.
I am by no means bashing the USPS. I too am amazed by their speed and consistency. I suppose I am just a bit impatient because NYU is my first acceptance and I'd very much like to get my hands on the envelope.

Don't worry, I think the governor of Wisconsin is a major league d-bag too. :P

Don't worry, once we get rid of collective bargaining, people will stop insulting them. It's not personal, it's all part of the political charade.

As of 2/08, I have heard from EVERY school but NYU. Every. School. (To be fair, two of those decisions were holds, but still.) UR date 11/03. Seriously? This is just cruel.

Same here. Also UR 11/3. But I'm also waiting for Michigan from the same October submission date.

They have been reviewing my app since Jan 11. Can someone tell me if this is normal. No acronyms please. I simply can't understand what any of them mean.

Oh, and what does "sticker" mean?
and what do all the acronyms mean? DLS/AWD/UR/WTF?

Thank you.

"Sticker" refers to "sticker price," i.e. having to pay the full price (no scholarship $).

-Decision Letter Sent (this appears on the status checker)
-Admitted Students Weekend/Admitted Students Website
-Under Review
-What the f---

Sticker: paying the overpriced full amount for a law school
DLS: in NYU's case, your status checker will change to Decision Letter Sent when they mail you a decision. So far this cycle, this has meant an acceptance.
AWD: ???? Do you mean ASW? If so, that can be Admitted Students Weekend or Admitted Students Website (once people's status changes to DLS they often check the site to see if their login info works. If it does, hurray acceptance!
UR: Under review.
WTF: The usual meaning

ETA: Whoops someone beat me to it. :D

So strange, because Michigan was the second school I heard back from... These decisions seem so arbitrary sometimes. Numbers? From your schools, it seems like we have similar ones, with yours probably somewhat better. (PM me to share, if you like)

Welcome to the NYU de facto "Hold"/Waitlist. It is like dating... you don't really want to end up with your "safety", but you don't want to let her go until you know that you can do better. That is what NYU is doing to all of us. Basically, they don't love us, but maybe we are as good as it gets.

And you don't want to tell your safety that they are your safety/back-up option... so you string them along for a while. In this case, a long while.

Should I tell NYU then that Michigan proposed and I said yes?

Samesies. On hold at two others (major reaches, so I view those positively :mrgreen: ), but still ur as of 11/11 at nyu. Decisions made at all the rest... and I applied everywhere.

It looks like if you aren't in by the middle of March, you aren't getting in at all, based on last year's data.

It's kind of difficult to compare this year and last year seeing as application numbers are down by what, 12-15%? Last year, no one got in off wait lists. I don't know if you can necessarily say the same thing about this year.

Hi, I'm wondering if anyone that's been under review for a couple months already submitted a LOCI or anything else? If so, have you heard back from NYU?

I'm under review for two and half months now...wondering what to do...any suggestions?

But seriously, I'm in the same position and I think I am going to submit a LOCI right away (like, by tomorrow). The only thing is that the letter might not make it into the hands of whoever has the file right now... but I think it's worth a try. Wish I had written more of a "Why NYU" when it really counted. :(

Has anyone that's submitted a LOCI via email gotten a response from NYU?
