Me. Above both 75ths as well, and UR1 since 10/11.


Totally speculating here lol, but I applied to a different "programmatic scholarship" very early on and have also been UR1 since 10/11. Think it's possible that they wait until the January 1 deadline to make final decisions on these apps?


This sounds so reasonable

Do we know if they will be in today or does vacation begin now?

I'm not above both 75th but I also applied to the Jacobson and heard back last week. I've heard that they consider the scholarship aspect separately, they look at whether to accept you then in late January look back and consider for the scholarship.

Interested in this as well, I'm guessing that they'll be in today and take the entire next week off.

I also bet that they're probably making you wait for YP reasons I still think you're in a pretty good spot:)

NYU is too good to YP.

So you're saying you first get into NYU in general, then they consider whether to accept you to Jacobson and whether to give a scholarship in late January?

"Finalist are expected to be available for an interview in March or April 2017. Scholarship offers will be made shortly after the interviews."

Finally decided to pull the trigger on an app here. It's a pretty big reach for me, but what the hell.

What sort of things come to mind?

hey...why not try? You wouldn't be the first person to get in when they thought they had no chance. (This is how I talked myself into the Harvard app that I'm patiently waiting to get rejected)

So I live in NY and NYU is far and away my top choice + a reach school (GPA slightly below median, 50<LSAT<75)

I didn't write a Why NYU cause didn't wanna bulk up my app too much.

Anyone have thoughts on more ways to show my interest w/o being annoying? I could easily go to the admissions office every day if I wanted (live off dat L train), but not sure if pestering would do more harm than good.

There is an Why NYU? portion on the app?? wth i never saw one.

also, my status tracker says "application under review." does this mean my app is complete? i have all three checks on the "requirements list."

1. There is no Why NYU section. You can sorta do it by applying to a scholarship (though not sure if evaluated during the main application). Or just don't worry about it. None of us did one, either.

2. Under review means it is complete and on to the part where they review it.


I see. Thanks for clearing that up. Have their been acceptances yet this cycle?

Also went UR2 Thursday night.

Seems there may have been a bit of a wave right before they closed, maybe decisions early in the new year??

Just went UR2 this morning. It was a tough wait (UR1 10/25 to UR2 12/28)

With a GPA slightly below median and lsat above median I dont think NYU is a "reach school"

I think the general consensus here is that theres no need to express extra interest, they already know its one of your top choices!

I'm sorry, but how is NYU a "reach" for you?
