Their status checker is the worst imo. I can't open it using my work IE browser (it's old, and I can't upate it). I can't check it using Firefox or my iPhone. Why is their status checker the most difficult?


try this trick

1. Go here: https://www.law.nyu.edu/admissions/jdadmissions/index.htm
2. Click the "Academics" tab
3. Then click the "Admissions" tab
4. Click "JD Admissions"
5. Click "Application Online Status Check"

..and Voila (hopefully). Don't ask me how i figured that out.


This works for me. Another method is to simply modify the link when you click on the status checker. Remove the bolded part in http://www.law.nyu.edu:443/admissions/jdadmissions/applicantstatuscheck/index.htm and it should work.

I got the acceptance packet (with a handwritten note about my PS, nice touch!) but never got a phone call. Why do they call some and not others? Seems weird. NOT complaining because I'm in and grateful...just confused. No call from berk or NYU and in at both.

Crazy thought, but perhaps you should check and see if your phone number is correct on your LSAC app....

Okay so I have had two status changes, but no status that has said "DLS", is this good or bad? and did everyone who was able to log onto admitted students website have a status update that said DLS or just a status update saying "under review" still?

It is. I don't know what's up. I don't need a phone call, just confused why.

I submitted on Friday with no update yet that my application has been received. At what point do I get worried?

Thanks for the reassurance! I went here for undergrad, you'd think I would have learned by now...

Need TLS advice - I have my entire app ready and submitted every other app months ago. I want to apply for some of the named scholarship but here's the issue: I asked for the additional letter of recommendation in July and, despite many requests, the person continues to reassure me he is getting to it. We have been in close contact for years and this is unlike the person. About two weeks or so ago, he said he was getting a divorce, going into foreclosure, etc and that's why it'd taken so long but not to worry I would have it soon. Still nothing. What do I do? Submit without the letter? Forget the schollys? I really have nobody else who can talk about my work in public interest besides him.

ask the NYU if they'll take the actual application now, and if you can attach the rest later. They're probably cool with it.

So according to last year's LSN there was another wave of acceptances on the Wednesday before Christmas. Here's hoping today's the day.

Are you a recent grad? Which school of NYU are you?

And don't feel bad, I just finished undergrad here and I still don't understand the processes.

It would appear that Arrested Development references are not terribly unique, but not me :lol:

I received the status checker 5 days after my UR date.

And I haven't heard back yet. Maybe today?

I know other offices are going to limited hours tomorrow so I'd guess if nothing happens today, it probably won't until at least the Friday after Christmas.
