Based on last year my guess is sometime next week. Gives them a full business week after the deposit deadline to reassess things and figure out who they should admit. That seems about right to me.

so right after my NU deposit is due? Awesome :(

Yep! But that's always how these things work out. Deposits seems like you're wasting a bunch of money if you back out, but it's actually pretty much nothing in the grand scheme of things.

yeah. I'm going to deposit (I'm happy with Northwestern), and if something (acceptance/scholly) comes up later, I may try to get them to let me in without a deposit

For sure. I'm not sure I ever congratulated you on Northwestern, btw. So Congrats! I hope you get in here but Northwestern would be pretty awesome.

I'm case anyone's following this thread and not the NYU waitlist one, a few calls went out today. I missed mine, but that might be a good thing. By tomorrow morning I might be able to keep my voice in the proper octave/register.

Any possibility of getting off the waitlist with numbers under both medians? Or do I have to resort to trying to transfer from cornell after my first year? :lol:

I'm at LSAT median and well below GPA median. And I might have a chance! Soo...

First off, you definitely have a chance based on my anecdotal knowledge last year. Second, if you have the grades to transfer from Cornell to NYU next year you probably shouldn't be transferring. But that's a whole different discussion.

Its a peculiar situation for me because NYU would cost less, since I would be able to move back in with my parents and it's tuition is 10k cheaper. I guess I'm getting far ahead of myself by talking about transferring though, for now I can only hope to get off the waitlist.

Congrats to those who got calls. Were you formally offered admission? Have any more calls gone out?

Hey so after one of those vague "will you come here if we offer you a spot" calls earlier in the week, I checked my status checker at the end of the day today and it said a decision letter had been sent. I wasn't sure what this meant, since I assumed they would have contacted me if I'd been accepted, but it didn't really make sense to reject me (why not just keep me on the WL?). So, I tried logging into ASW with my info and it worked! So I guess that means I'm in and they just didn't tell me?? Anyway just thought I'd let you guys know. I am 168/3.91 non-URM.

I noticed a trend that Columbia is very Reverse-splitter friendly this year - wonder if it's a trend?

Edit: congrats!

i nearly died when I saw the 212 number show up! no official offer yet though!

i find this very interesting, did they do this last year? call everyone on the wailtist individually to find out if they're still interested in attending?
