The UR part doesn't change but the date does. You go UR almost immediately after submission.


To budge in and clarify as a rowdy newcomer, though, I only had one UR date for NYU and got admitted straight afterward. Meaning, I went UR one day after submission (12/19), the status checker date did not change at all until 01/07, which is the day that I got the DLS state update. I checked on 01/06 and the status was still "Under Review 12/19," and I remember thinking 'okay, they are still stuck,' so I am certain about this :). Low 170's/4.0X.

I'm sure someone has done the research.

This would be very helpful. As well as when people are typically pulled off.

I submitted mid november and have heard back from 6 schools. How late should we expect answers till :/ Still waiting from UPenn, Cornell, Berkley, Vandy, and others.
I am at some UR dates with them but I keep getting skipped over during the sweeps, at least I have not been dinged but I am hoping to hear back soon so I can buy tickets over spring break to visit schools.

I was looking at T14 scholarships for the other thread, so I figured I may as well note how they went out for this thread. this is based on last cycle for the most part though, so some might change. I underlined the ones that are based on this cycle.

Columbia: Mail. Hamilton/Butler (full/half tuition) included with initial acceptance letter
Chicago: Email
NYU: Email. Vanderbilt (full tuition) via mail
Penn: Email
Berkeley: Email
UVA: Mail. Dillard (full tuition) sometimes given via phone call
Michigan: Email
Duke: Mail (status checker shows mailing date). Mordecai (full tuition) via phone call
Northwestern: Email
Cornell: Mail. Charles Evans Hughes (full tuition) via status checker/email with acceptance.
Georgetown: Email

I don't know what YP means, but I was admitted to Cornell without interviewing and my numbers are slightly borderline (GPA 75th percentile, LSAT 25th percentile). I also checked my status about a week before being admitted and it was still at the application received or complete stage, I forget what exact working was used.

Does anyone know how long NYU and Penn apps are "under review" before decisions are made? I'm under review at both, since 1/26 at Penn and 1/5 at NYU, and would really love to be accepted to either. My cycle is going well but NYU is my dream school and Penn is... Penn.

I'm still waiting on an SMU decision. Does anyone here know that process?
