UR1 10/30. Right now I want to murder my pre-law advisor who told me that submitting my application early in the cycle is worth more than retaking the LSAT. What a joke: submitting in October clearly meant nothing.

I think what I've learned is that applying before early January doesn't make much of a difference. But applying after early January makes a HUGGGEEEEEE DIFFERENCE. I was wait-listed to a lot of schools that I "should" have been admitted to. Stats are 169 / 3.9x. (Applied Jan 22 and later to the T14)

WL'd today via email. Didn't check the Status Checker earlier today or last night.

I'm gonna hang out on the Waitlist but I'll obviously make serious plans elsewhere pretty soon now that I finally can keep the "maybe..." out of the equation.

Yeah. I´d like this.

edit: Also, yesterday was my 6 month aniversary for going under review. Maybe they´re planning something super special for the occasion?

The bottom line is that it's nearly impossible to decipher what factors, aside from raw numbers, can really sway an admissions officer. I think 3 points on the LSAT will completely outweigh sending an application in "late" in the cycle. Clearly, at least with NYU, decisions are not made based on when you submit.

Not me and I can't log onto the ASW website. WL and dings are both by email correct?

Based on the 2010-11 and 2011-12 NYU application cycles, a major wave of waitlists and dings came out on 4/21 and 4/22, while even a few more came as late as either 4/25 or 4/26. I am praying that they are not waiting this long to send out more dings, especially since the number of applicants is down this cycle when compared 10-11 and 11-12. I am doubtful anymore decisions for applicants who have not went DLS this week (some baseless speculation).

It took a couple of hours for me to get my WL email, but I think others that changed on the same day got the email sooner
