I submitted 10/27, under review 11/5, updated to 12/3, no changes since then.
I am an RD applicant with 3.73 GPA, 175 LSAT, URM, current NYU Ugrad, and legacy (but none of them donate significant amounts of money)


Sir, it is an honor to be in your company.

FTFY :)

But seriously, Mr. Elshal, you give me hope. Because if they didn't accept you, they're obviously not done accepting yet.


Yeah, Exactly. If he isn't in they aren't done yet because he clearly has everything going in his favor.

Edit #2: what about going straight to WL? I'm above 50th percentile LSAT but below 25th percentile GPA.

I think that would have weird results. If some people are deferred and re-reviewed in April and others are directly waitlisted, would it be better to be deferred than to be directly WL'd? In theory, deferred EDs still get a shot at an acceptance in April, but also might get a rejection in April. If you're directly WL'd, you avoid the possibility of either.

I guess I don't hold out hope of being directly accepted as a part of the regular applicant pool, and I would feel more (falsely) in control of the situation if I were WL'd because I could beg/bribe/charm/seduce my way into an acceptance

That's totally reasonable. But the thought of getting a decision in December, then definitely having to wait until at least May for an update is painful. April gives like the tiniest possible bit of hope.

You're right, I just don't have hope. Actually at this point I'm hoping that I get waitlisted at both NYU and Columbia and then beg and beg both of them until August all while putting down my seat deposits at Michigan and crying about having to move to Michigan. My fantasies are often depressing.

Question with the deferrals - do the decisions definitely come in April or could it possibly come before that? Is that just like a cut-off, or will we just not get re-reviewed until then?

Do any of the admittees who submitted in November (congrats, btw!) have C&F issues?

Trying to hold out hope. Had a speeding ticket... which I know really shouldn't impact my application, but I'm hoping they might put people with C&F stuff in a separate pile or something.

I was always under the impression that traffic offenses need not be reported. That would be silly.

Too soon to assume that I've been rejected? Been under review since 10/16.

169 (third try)/4.14. Strong softs and personal statement with a public interest focus. RD applicant.

Depends on the wording of each school's app. I think I sent a C&F addendum to maybe two schools whose wording was vague enough to give me pause. The vast majority so explicitly exclude minor traffic violations, though.

I looked it up and it may be one of them:

"Have you ever, either as an adult or a juvenile, been charged with or convicted of any crime, or charged with or found to have committed any offense (whether or not defined as a crime), or are any such charges pending? This should include matters that have been expunged or dismissed."

As has been mentioned, it varies by school.

This is one of NYU's C&F questions:

Have you ever, either as an adult or a juvenile, been charged with or convicted of any crime, or charged with or found to have committed any offense (whether or not defined as a crime), or are any such charges pending? This should include matters that have been expunged or dismissed.

I marked yes because a traffic violation seemed to fall under the category of offense to me.

Yep, I just checked and NYU was one of the schools that I sent a C&F addendum.
