In via voicemail today after applying at end of January. Had a 3.71 and a 170 LSAT. I've been pretty busy today but should I call back tomorrow and say thanks?

UR1 since 12/24. :(

Anyone else in the same boat? I tried looking on the past few pages and couldn't find anyone who was.

Ugh. Nice to know we're not alone though. What are your numbers, if you don't mind my asking?

I'm sub-median LSAT and median GPA, so I know it is a long-shot for me.

I'm also 12/24 and sub-median LSAT and median GPA. I'm just hoping to survive the waves of dings and maybe make the waitlist

Anyone with a UR1 date after mid-Oct can suck it - I'm at 10/15 and I'm pretty sure there's at least one other person ITT who's back here with me.

I'm three weeks after you with UR1 11/8. We should form a support group.

Don't give up hope entirely. I sat at a 12/3 UR date until just a few days ago. They came back for me, they can do it for you all too.

While I appreciate the sentiment, those extra two months of waiting have really, really built up a nice, deep well of burning resentment.

Oh, I definitely know what you mean. NYU has to do a lot to get back in my good graces, and I can't imagine what it'd be like to have waited even longer and STILL not have heard anything.

Not a peep. This is at LEAST a $60k scholarship worth of ill-will.

UR 2 since 12/24...I'm convinced I'll be in the late March/early April WL group. I wish they just sent the WLs sooner to put me out of this misery.

I have a sort of a silly question. On the status page, there used to be a long narrative about there being "multiple reviews...multiple weeks..." Now all that narrative is gone, but the status is still at "under review" (since 2/21). Can this possibly mean anything?

After hearing about a supposed wave of major dings and waitlists coming soon, I've found myself holding my breath every time I log in the status checker and am happy my date hasn't changed lol.

Anyone hear back about Furman Academic Scholarships yet? I'm curious how many people are considered for it, and how many actually get the offer, and how many take it during their very short allotted decision-making period. I wanna get a sense of what my chances are lol
