Still this is exciting news. They're actually going through apps. I still don't have confirmation that they've received my Ed contract.

Checking In. Just sent in my ED app.

I feel like I'm kind of charting new territory here, since there is so little data on someone with my numbers EDing...

So end of December is when we hear back?

I appreciate your vote of confidence, but I'm not so sure, especially considering I don't have any compelling softs, and my multiple LSATs.

You however, are probably in a much better position.

Just curious, is there any sort of TLS consensus about what difference multiple LSATs makes at NYU? I mean, they say they average them, but do we really believe that?

I've looked at that graph a million times, but looking at it in that context, I see why it would show that they don't care about multiple LSATs.

Since I've got your ear (or anyone else's?), is there any evidence that ED gives a boost? They say no on their website, but I was hoping that was not true as well. However, I am going through all the ED applicants last year, and I can't seem to find anyone who was accepted that wouldn't have been accepted anyway.

I agree. I'm leaning towards not EDing....

I think that graph might answer this question as well. NYU is as big on numbers as any school in the T-14. If you have the numbers, you are in, and if the numbers come up short, you're out. This has the effect of making them very predictable, but that's not a good thing if your numbers don't stack up.

Having said all that, I would argue that someone with your numbers is potentially in some trouble under regular decision, and ED could provide the tiny boost you need. I think Strange will be fine RD.

It's definitely interesting to think about. I think that, based on the data from LSN, both NYU and Columbia don't give any kind of bump for ED -- a lot of schools have a sort of boilerplate 'ED will not make up for a weak overall application' thing to stop people from applying ED with 2.4/163 UPWARD TREND, or whatever, but these two seem to actually mean it -- it seems to be more like a binding early action. The only benefit is that you're guaranteed a quicker response. People are accepted and waitlisted from ED applications based on the same standards as RD, and the only flat rejection at the 3.5/173+ level (the 3.42/174) is from an ED.

I, and some people I've been talking with, are in a really weird spot with regard to EDing at the ~3.6/173 level -- Chicago & Columbia are probably out, even with ED, and NYU looks like a pretty safe bet with RD, with no boost from EDing. Because it's a good fit, I'd ED to NYU if I thought it would have some kind of benefit, but I don't think that there's any evidence that it will, from what I can tell.

Why do you think Chi and CLS are out? Based on your numbers there were people who got accepted on LSN

Not out, I guess, just unlikely. Chicago's 25th percentile GPA went up a *lot* in 2012 as a result of new scholarship money luring a lot of kids in with YHS type numbers, which makes it less likely that they'll accept splitter-type candidates this cycle.

Yeah, I'm thinking of not even applying there. Unless they give me a fee waiver :D You look like you got a good shot at CLS though

Be sure to check for a hidden waiver- I didn't realize I had one until yesterday. :wink:

I was the same way - went to apply and was pleasantly surprised when I didn't have to pay (save the processing fee)!

You may be right. It is hard to tell.

Well anyway, I took the gamble, so hopefully in future cycles potential NYU ED applicants will see me on LSN and benefit from my experience.

Right on. It could help. It couldn't possibly hurt. If you're 100% sure that NYU is the right school for you, there's not really any downside.

Checking in: just submitted. This is the second application I've placed - the process is daunting. It all makes me feel like I'm missing something.
