For what it's worth, my stats are 3.57 170 and I did not submit a LOCI. I did say NYU was my first choice in my response to the initial waitlist email. My wording is basically what the previous poster just said.


Anyone (other than me) who went under review again this week not hear back? =/
Congrats to those who got in!

honestly I presume you were accepted as well.

it's very unusual to be dinged from a WL, especially this early.

Australia apparently has some sick law programs ...

Also Georgetown beats Penn and Michigan, and UCLA beats Duke and Northwestern by this ranking. Disqualified.

also, would sending another LOCI come off as desperate? or should we just sit and wait?


imo do so only if you have not impressed upon nyu adcoms you would 100% fucking attend.


that's what's bothering me. i think its clear in my LOCI, but i didnt use any really strong terms like "100%" or "absolutely".


if i were you i would include absolute terms. drill into the adcoms mind that 'ok this guy we can trust on not to fuck up our yield"

You didn't offer them your first unborn child? Yeah, no, definitely needs to be stronger.

Ah ok, I was worried they had a school specific form I needed to submit (although I think schools either have NeedAccess or their own form, not both, so that makes sense).

There's a mental health component to the bar's C&F evaluation.

So a couple questions:

1. What is this UPS mychoice thing? How do I sign up if I haven't received an email or anything?
2. Did everyone/most people who got a ups tracking email get accepted
3. What's in the box?

He is joking. The pizza box contains literature on NYU Law's programs and faculty.

Guys/gals I'm confused. I received a UPS envelope, inside of which was a purple envelope, which contained my admit letter. No pizza box. UPS mychoice says my package has been delivered.

Is this it, or is something else supposed to be on the way? Also, someone mentioned we have to deposit by May 20th (I think) - where did that person get there info from?

Doesn't say anything in the letter...

I (regular admit) got the UPS purple envelop a few days before the pizza box. Don't fret; the letter is proof enough that you got into NYU. Congrats!
