Took 2-3 days for me to go complete so you might want to consider contacting them in a week or two.

I applied for the Root-Tilden-Kern scholarship and used my personal statement as the essay.

Still haven't applied, but I'm hoping to get it out by next week. I want to write 1 or 2 of the scholly essays. NYU on a big scholly would be tough to turn down because I love the area and I wouldn't have to move from where I'm living now.

Is anyone applying to the IILJ scholarship? If so and feeling generous please PM me, I have a (rather dumb) question...

It took awhile for me too. Don't worry. I think it was well over a week.

Wow NYU moves fast... I'm already under review at NYU and I just applied on 11/4! :)

Definitely makes me happy since other schools have not even sent any type of acknowledgement whatsoever.

I haven't had a status date change since 9/30, when my app went under review. I see other people on this thread have had multiple date changes. Does anyone think no date change indicates an automatic rejection? If that's what it means I wish they would just tell me so I can stop getting my hopes up :(

I don't think anyone's gotten a status date change (looked back a few pages and couldn't find what you were referencing). Just sit back and relax, I'm sure there's no reason to worry

I had one status date change since it went complete. I really don't know if its a good or a bad thing. Probably best to just wait for their decision and not read too much into a process you don't really know

How many scholarship applications is too many? I'm considering two right now because none of the others really fit my applications, but I imagine that the public service/government focused applicants have like 5 or 6 that pertain to them.

ty, but one guy above you applied nov 4 and already knows that he's UR on nov 7. They finally sent me an acknowledgement/status check after I emailed them this morning. Every other LS acknowledged my app the morning after, and sent a status check soon after if not in the same email. you think a week-long delay to receive an -acknowledgement- is normal?

A) please relax!
B) probably call them if you're going to be stressing about it anyway and politely ask what the status of your app is

I sent an email after it had been about a week with no acknowledgement. They responded within a few hours telling me that everything was alright.

Just had my third date change:

10/29/13
10/30/13
11/8/13

Has been "under review" since 10/30. Are there any indications as to what this means? I'm not sure what is the norm as far as status updates for NYU.
