For what it's worth, I had a 165 and a 175. I got accepted within two weeks of applying, which I would expect with the 175 but not with a 170 (avg score).

TSO FRUSTRATING


Final stages or legit review?

Legit review. I'm wondering if it's because I couldn't get my father's info for Need Access (never met the man and would have no idea in how to get in touch with him).

Congrats!

Looks like they're digging into the pile of reverse splitters.

As someone headed for the wait list, this means at least that some of us just shy of both medians should be closer to the top...we hope.

What's a reverse splitter? Like I'm above on one criteria and below the other?

I got in with a 162 and a 173 and only a 3.6x gpa, so doubt they truly average.

That's awesome, CONGRATS! I honestly didn't even expect to be admitted with my numbers, so this is definitely a welcome surprise.

LSAT averaging is the only possible reason I can explain NYU's complete radio silence with me since November. Stuck at UR 11/26, high LSAT of 171, but average low 160s, GPA 3.81. I even sent them an LOCI in mid-January with some good reasons, my dad is an alum. What the hell?

Isn't 171 still below median though? I thought NYU had a 172 median.

As far as I know, they haven't released their latest median, but based on the 25th and 75th %iles, the new one is probably 171.

I submitted Need Access last Friday night and got my award today: $62.5K.

I don't think this is enough to steer me away from Cornell's offer. I may try to negotiate but even if they bumped it up to $75K, I think it would still be a difficult choice.

I'm pretty sure this has to be the reason, Noodley. Did you ever contact NYU about their policy of needing both parents' info?


Congrats to the new admits and to the people excited about their scholarship offers!

congrats lavitz! debt-free is debt-free though.

i think NYU might be doing a weird combined version of need/merit for their scholarship offers. that's what it feels like, at least.

Except I won't be completely debt-free :wink: But thanks. I'm kind of glad this seems to be an easy decision at the moment.

Yeah, maybe it has to do with the fact that I was honest about how much cash I have saved up. I mean, it's only enough to make a small dent, but they may have adjusted mine downward because of it.

I have zero in savings and a hilariously small amount in my checking account, and my current job is giving me pennies. they might have thrown some more my way because of my financial situation. all speculation though.
