True/NYU ED was not easy this year. Someone on the NYU thread said we all should have ED'd to Columbia.

It would be hilariously ironic if all the T-14 ED cycles were harder this year because more kids applied ED because they thought they had a better chance because of declining apps.

Yeah, I wish other schools offered 2 ED rounds...

Yeah, I'm laughing all the way to my bedroom which is henceforth renamed the den of tears.

But wouldn't these kids have worse numbers than normal ED candidates? Unless you mean harder in terms of % accepted.

Probably, but they would present more options to adcomms that are probably worried about declining apps and numbers as well. Even if that wasn't the case, it would just mean more applications for adcomms to sift through..which would delay the process.

It is pretty strange that we haven't heard of any dings yet. I wonder what they're waiting for? I hope we don't end up having to wait until the end of the month.

Probably not. I think a second wave of a few acceptances and rejections will go out this friday or earlier, looking at last year's cycle.

Also, has anybody that was accepted receive their acceptance email yet? Maybe their computers are still having problems, hence no rejection emails....

Haven't received the e-mail but the application checker has info on the seat deposit. They might just send the acceptance packet without the e-mail. I am not sure what to expect since, once I Dean Post said I was accepted, I lost all ability to retain information.

So true.

Also, re: the computers, the status checker message is from last year ("Welcome to the class of 2015" coupled with incorrect ASW dates), so I think Penn might still be having issues with the computers.

ETA: and no, I still haven't received my acceptance email.

Since I wasn't in that wave of ED acceptances I'm just hoping I get waitlisted instead of outright dinged.

It's sad but also oddly comforting that the ED discussions in the Penn, NYU, and Columbia threads are all the same. We're all just sitting around, hoping our schools-of-choice will break with tradition and send out another batch of acceptances or, at the very least, just tell us something.

I'm rooting for you all!

ED applicants will probably get rejections throughout the week starting tmw to friday, with a small wave of acceptances friday (if that, since theres a new round of ED).

RD will probably hear monday

Unless they change this due to 2nd round ED...
