I'm trying to kill all hope that NYU is going to accept me so I think we should all totally lose our composure. Make it weird.

That's smart. I really thought I was going to get in, so that was my first mistake.

Edit: obviously our collective first mistake was being born amirite human kind?

You mean ED, surely, yes?


If he means rd then dang it just got real

I'm holding off until he offers clarification. E and R are right next to each other on the keyboard, after all, and I need to be sure before I add yet another thing to my already overflowing plate.


Offering clarification. I meant RD as in Regular Decision. He has a 3.92, 176, and he got in today via phone call. Im sitting on a 3.98, 171 and hoping for a call in the next few weeks. Stressed.

wait, NYU gives out decisions via phone call? now i'm super confused- i thought the standard procedure was DLS on status checker -> snail mail.

Almost positive only letters go out to RDers.

Edit: I stand corrected.

That stuff is just the theory. In practice it's a lot harder to follow; I think I'll be pretty crushed if I fail my ED at this point :oops:

I don't want to hold out hope because it will only be make me more disappointed in the event that I am rejected, but the admissions office is acting so weird this cycle! ED decisions at 4 PM on one day, then RD decisions the next day? So I'm finding it hard to believe that the vast majority of ED acceptances have gone out. I rather I don't want to believe that they have.

I was just accepted ED with a 171 retake, 3.50(Median LSAT, 25% GPA) so there's hope if you're a bit below the average! I definitely benefitted from the lowered LSAT/GPA standards. I highly doubt I would have been accepted 2 years ago.

Best of luck to everyone this cycle and hope to see you in the Fall!

Congrats! What was the date of the "Decision Letter Sent" status? It looks like you were the only ED applicant (on TLS) accepted yesterday.

Apart from the mention above, have any other RD applicants heard anything? I'm still at "Application under review" from 11/7.

Looks possible we've got another day of no movement. LSN now shows 9 ED admits, which is in the range of the last several years. I'm thinking most of us remaining ED applicants are heading for deferral, and RD admits will begin early next week. I'll still hold on to some hope, but it's fading fast.

Ugh. I guess I'll spend this weekend working on my hail mary app to Columbia.

Yeah I have settled into the idea that I will likely be riding some waitlists, but still optimistic NYC can work out.

There it is folks. If you can log into the admitted students website that means that you are admitted.
