In the same boat as you, with the same dates for completion and UR2. I wonder if they're processing URMs differently?

x2 for me

URM here and other URMs with lower numbers have been admitted before me and I applied super early. My numbers aren't super high, though

I'm kind of a urm, not a traditional one, but I did fill out the portion on diversity for my race and SES on my app when I applied. Gpa 25-50 and lsat at 75th and have not heard back. Maybe they're treating me as a urm per their own criteria and that is why I have not heard back yet?

I don't know if I'd be considered a "high numbers" applicant, but I'm @ median LSAT, between 25th and median GPA... had a few numbers twins (or close to it) get admitted ahead of me despite applying at the same time / earlier. I did apply for a named scholarship which required an essay - this little theory gives me a little bit more hope than is probably justified. I'll take it though. :P

Also submitted a DS. Don't know if that has influence along the same lines as URM delays.

I was submit 01/06, admit 01/23

URM 25% GPA, above 75% LSAT. No named scholly, no supplemental essays (aside from generic diversity statement)

I don't think that has anything to do with being URM- there are plenty of non-URMs stuck at early review dates.

NYU is literally driving me insane... (But I love you, NYU! Please let me in!) Granted, my numbers aren't that strong (LSAT=75 but median GPA) but people with lower numbers who applied at the same time have heard back. I did write a scholarship essay, though, so I hope there's some merit to that theory...

I also applied for a named scholarship with an essay. I have a 99% chance of not getting in with my numbers, but I'd like to think the only reason I haven't heard has to do with the essay.

Good luck to everyone still waiting!

UR2 today.

I am not a URM. Below 25 GPA, above LSAT 75 (took test twice, went up 4 points second time, both above the 175).

Submitted 1/16.
Never went complete, email that my application was received and I could check status on 1/23. Status was Under review with a date of 1/17.
Stayed in Under review but date changed to 1/27 today.

Good luck to all.

I applied for the RTK program, went complete on 1/6 and was admitted on 1/23. That said, I have a lot of connections to NYU (alum, WE, recs, etc.). I know it's super frustrating (/soul-killing) to be left wondering, but don't stress about something that hasn't happened yet. :)

Remember when people said NYU was a predictable school and had a quick turnaround, especially by the time January hits? :lol: :lol: :lol:
