But today they sent me an email asking me to apply, you know the one. The "you're a competitive applicant based on your numbers" email- anyone know if their numbers are down? or what? I'm not a super strong applicant for them generally speaking- 167, 3.75ish. Is it worth applying? I don't want to spend $100 for a rejection letter like I did for undergrad (after I waited 3 weeks past their decision date and called them... they refused to refund my app fee but said they'd notify me after reading my application. psh. jerks!)
You're below the LSAT 25th, and in the GPA 50-75. I wouldn't expect you to have a great chance, and LSN seems to back that up:
Did they give you a fee waiver, or just encourage you to apply?
No fee waiver. That's why I'm skeptical. I mean I can attempt to solicit one, and see if that works out. But I'm really not looking to waste time and money to get an email and a letter. Flattering though it may be, I'm not looking to boost NYU's admissions statistics. Did anyone else get this email?
