High LSAT, low GPA. I have excuses though and added an addendum but I'm trying to not rely on that too much.

Then they can fill the gaps in GPA later.


Welp I'm above 75 for nyu on lsat and getting no love :/

Has anyone considered that the order could be based alphabetically or something equally mundane? I'm sure its either complete chaos or much more boring than we think

1800 acceptances to students last year out of 6200 applications. I do not envy the people that work in NYU admissions

How many of those are pretty much auto-dings because of their stats, though?

not sure, but the number of applicants last year that had a score from 168-180 is about 4,200. Assuming all of those 4,200 applied to NYU then that's well over the majority that I think would not be auto ding.

I realize that is a big assumption tho

Random; but has anyone you know confused NYU with NYL?

I've spoken to a few people who have. Its kinda annoying, but I guess harmless.

I found myself in a couple conversations that ended awkward. lol

Count your blessings that you did not go to U of C. The U of C UIC confusions are endless.

Not my situation, but I applied to Northeastern as a backup and idk who told someone what but my extended family keeps calling me saying, "congrats on getting into Northwestern with scholarship!!!" That's a fun one.

This seems better. At least they think you got into a better school. I'd roll with it.

I'm Facebook friends with a bunch of my younger sibling's friends, and their NYU undergrad early decisions came out today... so when I saw a few NYU Facebook statuses, I initially freaked a little bit :oops:

Got accepted a couple of days ago (about a week after going complete). First school I heard back from and I was really excited/relieved to start things off with a yes from one of the schools I'm most interested in.

I'm well above 75th for LSAT and at 25th for GPA.

Good luck to everyone.

Edit: I have to join in on this discussion about the huge variance in lay prestige compared to law prestige for some of the T14. I told a couple people about my first acceptance and got the somewhat cautious reception of friends and family worried that I'll be attending some NY state school they haven't heard of. Not a big deal, but just funny to think about how much more excited they would have been if I named some local TTT that they had heard of before.

Not great news to me.


Oh damn, is that what that means? International as well, and it seems like all the internationals I've seen have LSATS above the median.

I guess so. If your GPA is evaluated as A/B/C/D by LSAC. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

When people make that face, you should tell them NYU isn't a state school; it's a private university, and a damn expensive/prestigious one at that! lol

That just seems so strange to me because in UG, they had a lot of international students.

Edit: But also, the class size is WAY bigger in UG...
