I am 99% confident youll go DLS soon. congrats!


NYU seems to like to go DLS on Wednesdays or Thursdays, but it's usually earlier in the day than the afternoon, so maybe another wave tomorrow?

This happened to me last week. Nothing came of it (at least not yet). So while you may go DLS soon, I wouldn't bank on it.

After getting zilch in merit aid from NYU and 75k from UVA, I'm not considering e-mailing NYU to see if they'd be willing to reconsider my offer. What are y'all's opinion on this? I'm below median on LSAT and above 75th on GPA for NYU if that matters at this point. Is it better to start negotiating now or wait until the end of the cycle (April-ish)?

If you would prefer NYU over UVA, all things being equal, I'd definitely go for it. I haven't negotiated anything yet, but as long as you're tactful, I can't see how it could hurt. They probably won't match UVA, but they could give you something. Since you already have offers from both schools, I think you can start now.

how do you know you got 0 already? unless you are anticipating getting something better, i dont think it hurts to send your uva offer and ask for something, anything. itll proabbly be like 25k

ETA: Should I e-mail admissions or financial aid?

By some miracle, I'm in! Somebody in the admissions office left a pleasant voicemail on my cell while I was at work. AA male 165/3.6... I'm really surprised I squeaked in.

NYU sent out some scholarship info. I got an email saying that I didn't receive one, for example. I was admitted around Jan 11, and sent my info a few days later.

Just to clarify, anybody who received scholarship info (besides Vanderbilt) submitted need access already right? For those of you haven't heard anything, that's probably why.
