I'm with you here. I'm in November. I'm expecting a wl/ding to be honest, but I was hopeful for a reach if they counted me as unique with my major and softs. Until the ding comes, I'm going to keep on hoping. I sent an e-mail update (not quite a LOCI but along the lines of my most recent grades should be arriving shortly and I included relevant thesis work that shows up on there along with closing on how interested I am) and they e-mailed me back saying they updated my application.

Same here, still holding out the tiniest glimmer of hope. Sent them a full out LOCI a few weeks back, hoping that saves me from the WL.

I applied the day applications opened. Went UR 10/20. Then, in late October, I sent a "Why NYU" essay by email. Still radio silence...

Dinged today, UR since 1/9. It was a super reach, so it's all good.

Going on LSN gives me renewed hope... I'm a non-AA URM... lower than I'd like LSAT, but great GPA... UR since 1/23, and DESPERATELY hoping for some love.

Ugh, Jealous. I'm PR and there don't seem to be many non-AA URMs successfully applying to NYU (with at all comparable stats) .. at least as far as last year goes.

Anyone else hoping for some acceptances tomorrow. Looking at the stats on last years LSN there seems there was a wave on the 17th. I'm median numbers for both GPA and LSAT, UR since 1/5. Fingers crossed. Good luck to everyone else holding out hope.

I've been under review since 12/22 with a below average LSAT, excellent GPA, and some interesting/strong softs. Am I screwed? WL or rejection on the way at this point? At what point do I send an LOCI without looking desperate?

Lawhaus, if your status checker says DLS, you can find out if you're in by going to the accepted students' page. If you can sign in, you've been accepted.

yes, but if you can't sign in, it doesn't mean you're out. They sometimes update ASW later in the day
