I've kind of accepted that I won't go to DLS today. I really hope that I get something this week though.

I was UR before I checked my status checker for the first time. First UR was around 11/14.

Okay, then I should definitely stop checking.

What do people mean by "UR2"? The only statuses I am aware of are "complete" and "application under review."

I'm so jealous! To make my neuroticism easier to deal with...

My preferred TLS syntax for an admissions announcement:

Required and oh so helpful info:
    "I'm in!"
    Submitted on ___
    Complete on ___
    UR1/2 on ___
Optional info:
    My LSAT is ______
    My GPA is _____

Try not to. NYU gets what, 10000 applicants per year? And it's not like the admissions office has contracted out some elf workshop to process every application.

At least, that's what I'm trying to tell myself.

Haha, it's actually 5700 applicants. Around 450 matriculate.



HA I was way off. Woops

Last year, the first day RD acceptances went out, people with UR dates all the way up until 11/21 heard so I'm realllllllllly hoping that they get to November dates today (UR 11/08 here).

Last year, there was a big wave the week starting 12/10 and then a much smaller wave, but still with a lot of acceptances, in mid-January. NYU is one of only three applications that I have out that can possibly give me an acceptance before 12/31, so I would absolutely LOVE a DLS today. Plus, it's still Chanukah and I don't have a gift for tonight.

btw I applied RD with a 172/3.75. Does that mean I probably got denied/WL because it would just say accepted if I had been accepted?

No, you almost definitely got in with a DLS status and those numbers. When did your status go complete?
