I assume mine is waiting at home.

Went to campus today after brunch. Apparently you can't just waltz in for a self-guided tour. :oops:

Well I'm leaving tomorrow afternoon, but I'm sure I'll be back sometime in the near future.

Hoping that numbers jumps up a bit with another wave of ED acceptances tomorrow!

unfortunately, I'm about 99% sure they don't. Though you might be able to snag a couch in one of the dorms once we put up the 1L's taking Qs thread.

I was bored, so I expanded kappycaft1’ work, looking at LSN data for the other T20 schools.

Ten of them have been excluded from my analysis. Of those 10, seven haven’t started admitting people in earnest. (This group includes Yale, Columbia and USC.) For the other three, fewer than 200 applicants have registered on LSN. Because of this, I’m not convinced that the LSN applicant pools are large enough to be representative samples. (This is an arbitrary cut-off, I know, but oh well…)

Based on my calculations, NYU, Duke and Georgetown are giving out admit letters like hotcakes.
NYU = 38.2% of applicants so far [vs. 24.2%, which is last year’s acceptance rate for the entire cycle]
Duke = 40.9% [vs. 15.3%]
Georgetown = 46.8% [vs. 27.0%]

Meanwhile, the three stingiest schools are Harvard [12.7%], Berkeley [17.9%] and UVA [17.9%].

One more interesting tidbit: It’s often assumed that the acceptance rate for applications submitted early in the cycle will be greater than the acceptance rate for the entire cycle. Well, this assumption is panning out for all but one of the schools I’ve looked at. The exception is Harvard. While it has accepted 12.7% of applicants registered on LSN, its acceptance rate last year was 15.9%. This is good news for any early applicants who are anxiously awaiting JS1/2s. This is even better news if the adage is true that the applicant pool on LSN is generally stronger than the applicant pool at large.

Here are the results:
Harvard – 33/259 = 12.7% [15.9% last year]
Berkeley – 55/308 = 17.9% [12.7%]
UVA – 68/380 = 17.9% [9.3%]
Cornell – 106/303 = 25.0% [20.7%]
Michigan – 97/343 = 28.3% [21.4%]
UCLA – 91/258 = 35.3% [20.1%]
GW – 73/203 = 36.0% [28.7%]
NYU – 110/288 = 38.2% [24.2%]
Duke – 140/342 = 40.9% [15.3%]
Georgetown – 171/365 = 46.8% [27.0%]

While the percentages of acceptances on LSN are high thus far, you should also note that candidates on LSN are generally just stronger this year for whatever reason. I didn't do a highly detailed scan, but if you just look at NYU for instance, you can see that there was a much higher percentage of applicants on LSN last year that were <169.

You guys are also not really comparing apples to apples in terms of timing. Stronger applicants apply early in the cycle. When you compare the results in December of 12-13 cycle to the results of the entire cycle in 11-12, you're going to see a much higher acceptance rate in the 12-13 batch.

LSN is also just generally a pretty small sample of people that may or may not be honest about their numbers and acceptances.

I received just a letter and intent to enroll form, no package or such. Has anyone received a package with additional materials?

I just got my deferral email. It was a fun ride! See y'all in April, when I'll hopefully begin the next emotional roller coaster that is the NYU waitlist.

Still no phone call even though I got my status change/could log in Friday. How long from status change to call for most people?

Status checker appears to be down... Might this mean that some of us will be getting more news today?
