Checking in! NYU is my #1 choice, however, I'm not going to ED. I hope to have my application ready to send by 10/1.

Since the application process is now officially underway for NYU I just want to wish you all good luck and I hope to see you here either at an ASW this spring or attending next fall!

so, i'm reapplying this cycle after first applying in the 09-10 cycle. in that cycle i got a fee waiver from NYU and was admitted in the first round of acceptances. i was hoping for another fee waiver this time around (updated my CRS and have been receiving waivers here and there from other schools including u of chi) but didn't get one, and last night sent an email requesting one, saying i was admitted last time i applied, have these and these stats etc. today got back:


Thank you for your e-mail. CRS fee waivers are only available for the cycle during which it was granted. It is possible that you will be referred to our school again by CRS and you may receive a fee waiver later in the cycle, but there is no guarantee. Should you qualify for the CRS fee waiver once again after you submit your application, you may be reimbursed for the cost.



should i go ahead and submit then? i'm not sure what they mean by "may be reimbursed," or how realistic that is, but i really would like this waiver and am disappointed not to have gotten it. thanks for any input

Is it acceptable to make the "optional additional information" essay a "Why NYU essay"? I know for Columbia they have a general supplemental section that CAN be a Why Columbia, but I don't know if this veers too far from what they want for NYU?

Personally, I added extensively to my personal statement to specifically discuss why I wanted to go to NYU. I don't know that they want a separate essay just for that, but I would extend your PS if possible to try and really integrate into your PS reasons you want to go to NYU. Personally I used the optional essay for my diversity statement as that seemed more along the lines of what they wanted.

Someone compiled the data for people at both medians and something like 98% of people were accepted. They're a numbers whore plain and simple.

I'm using my PS as a statement for one of their scholarships as well, but I probably have no shot anyway :(

This is so so so true. NYU = most predictable T10 school by far.

That is actually very interesting. I never really noticed that for that graph, almost all applicants with >174 LSAT and >3.6 GPA were outright accepted - there are only two waitlists, and no rejections for those numbers.

Well, I'll be right at that mark after fall semester...that's plenty of incentive for me to actually do work.

Are you applying this cycle? If so, are you waiting for your fall semester to end before applying, or do you just mean it might help when you send in your fall semester grades?

Either way, good luck!

Ah, that makes more sense. But applying early, ED, and with >174 LSAT, I think you have a great chance. Seriously, look at the LSN graph for NYU. People with 174s and above were getting in with GPAs in the 3.4 to 3.5 range.
