Here's to hoping I don't get dinged for my low GPA :(

I'm between 25-50th GPA (towards the lower side) so I'm hoping since their margin is so tight that I'll be seen like a median applicant :( it sucks that their median went up this year, unless they are rounding again.


I'm below their 25th GPA, between their 25th,50th LSAT. :(

I was just looking at law school numbers and it looks like someone was rejected?

Edit - upon closer look it was a mistake

Are you looking at the person who reported being WL, then rejected? What made you decide it was a mistake?

Yeah, fingers crossed they're just waiting on the low GPA apps for later once they have the bigger picture.

if you click on the person's profile you also see a second nyu entry with pending. also most of their other schools they have WL-->rejected for them as well, so it looks like they made lots of mistakes

My feeling is one more wave before winter break and it's in next week.
But I hope one this week and one next week.

if you're right about only one before break, it'll be quite the big one - they'll have to notify all of the ED people.


That's not good :-/
I have my hope up for before winter break...

I think they accidentally carried data forward from a previous cycle.

I disagree, I think there's more randomness to it or they're at least paying more attention to softs. My LSAT was over the 75th, but my GPA was between the median and 75th. I don't think they're going in order with stats because I was accepted November 15th after going complete sometime around October 18th. Regular Decision btw.

Point being: don't lose hope if your stats aren't super high!!

Let me clarify: I don't think acceptances are coming out in order of stats. I don't think they're necessarily releasing the 75ths, splitters, then the 50ths. I'm sure they have some other concept of deciding who gets accepted at what time. There's no point assuming that just because you numbers aren't as high, you should have anything to freak out about because you haven't heard in a few weeks. I'm sure softs come into play and also what the school may be looking for.

Only 5 GPA wasn't counted (only 5 international undergrads went to NYU?)

Not great news to me.

I guess, in other words, I'll be sweating profusely through another long weekend.


We still have this Friday to hope for :D

I'm UR2 as of today. Has anybody noted any correlation between date of UR2 and any sort of decision?
