I think we all get the handwritten note, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't feel special!

Is it normal for NYU to take a few days (it's been 4 for me) to email your status checker?

I think mine came a day later but I'm sure it varies. Probably depends on where the weekend falls.

It sounds like many people received a handwritten note. But that shouldn't stop you from feeling special! Congratulations!!

Anyone hear back about anything scholarship related? My understanding is they have not begun to review that stuff yet...

I don't think they start this until after January 1 and people start sending in the forms. Although the essay-related scholarships might be on a different timeline.

Hi All, I'm new to the NYU thread because I just submitted on 12/6 and went under review on 12/12. My status has been updated to DLS as of today 12/17. Is there a way to find out the decision or do I just have to wait for the letter? What is this ASW thing?

If you didnt submit for one of the essay scholarships are you completely out of the running for merit based aid?

Almost everyone gets one, but they're all personalized so you should still feel special.

scooped because I didn't realize that I haven't been reading this thread. But still feel special.

Join the club. I've been UR since 11/8. What the actual fuck, NYU? I'm well within your medians! My personal statement was slightly risky, but you still can't really turn down my numbers...

This is getting to be ridiculous.

If it gives you any solace, I submitted my application the midnight applications opened in September with similar numbers to you, and I've been stuck at a UR date in early October.

I'm a nervous wreck :cry:

ASW is the admitted students website. From what I've heard, it should go live for new admits around 4 or 5 (but possibly later?). I've also heard that a phone comes within a few days. So you (/we, since I also got DLS today) should find out before a letter arrives

I am sure you'll get in. They're just trying to decide between full-scholarship or full-scholarship + stipend before giving you your decision :).
