I just submitted my app today. LSAT and GPA basically right at median. Anyone have an idea what the turn around time might be? A month? Two months?


paging MDLG

Unless you're anyone other than me, in which case you'll have a decision approximately.. tomorrow.

For those who went UR or applied before others who have been admitted, this — from an interview with Associate Dean for Admissions Kenneth Kleinrock — might offer some useful insight (emphasis mine):

Do students who apply in November or December have any advantage (or disadvantage) by applying before the applicant pool has really taken shape? Is there a “best” time to apply to NYU?

Our deadline is February 15. We employ a “rolling notification” process not a rolling admission process. This means applications are reviewed in the order they are completed, but decisions are not made in the same order. Ours is a thoughtful, comparative process and it takes time for us to read applications and make decisions. The earlier a candidate applies, the earlier she might receive a decision. All applicants completed by the deadline will hear if they are admitted, denied or wait listed by mid-to late-April. For some reason, quite a large number of applicants wait until the week of the deadline to apply. While that will not negatively impact our decision, those candidates will likely not hear from us until later in our cycle.

yea it says "Decision Letter Sent" on your status checker, that means they mailed it out.

According to the spreadsheet, you're the only one who's not ED who got in with below a 3.6. It looks like NYU is accepting people right now as if they want a 172 LSAT median. TLS, of course, isn't represtentative, but that's what it looks like.


Can't post in the spreadheet b/c I'm on a gov computer, but I'm in with a 3.33/173....non-trad though, so that might not be an incredibly useful data point.


Still, it's a little reassuring... when did you submit/go complete?

EDIT: Sorry, I just actually checked the spreadsheet and you already told us. Nevermind!

I have been sitting at UR since early October...I have already been accepted to UVA and Harvard so I don't think there is need for either of us to worry.


This makes me feel bounds better. I also haven't heard and have been UR since early october. I am >75% on both LSAT and GPA... I'm wondering if they're simply waiting for my fall semester grades since I'm K-JD and graduating in 3 years total?

Congrats to all the new admits. I just sent in my app. Last one of the cycle.

I rode the waitlist last year until August, so hopefully they're just like...
