I'm hopeful but I'm losing my confidence, esp. with that mini-wave we had earlier this week.

You and me both. Plus, I applied to the AnBryce Scholarship, and they're supposed to let finalists know next month. I'm stressing. Losing hope.

Just saw on MS9's twitter a couple days ago: "Based on the data we are seeing, decisions this cycle are a bit slower than normal. Which means many more admits to come!"

Made me feel better about not having heard anything yet, and I think overall it's good news!


Good call. There were a larger number of December test takers this year, so that would also delay decisions.

Just thinking out loud here. According to LSN, last year's waves were on 1/12 and 1/19 (both Tuesdays). First wave this year was 1/10 (also a Tuesday). Might be another wave coming 1/17?

Of course this is just my looking for some kind of pattern and reading into coincidences...*heart palpitations* :?

(NYU is a huge reach for me numerically, but I submitted 12/17, UR1 or 2 I forget 12/23)

Odds are that was a UR1.

I wouldn't mind if they consistently had Tuesday waves. At least I'd know which day to be anxious on lol

UR2 11/28. Really hoping the delay doesn't mean an inevitable April waitlist

Yeah, ironically during the one cycle where there's a possible boost for applying later!

Can someone explain why there might have been a boost for applying later in this cycle? Just saw MS9's twitter too but don't understand the reasoning behind this :shock: :roll:

Applied 10/2. Splitter. Really thought I would get in but starting to have doubts. MyLSN puts my chances at 77%, and it's a low scoring year...

(That being said, MyLSN also put my Cornell chances at 60%, and I got rejected there lol. And it also put my chances at Penn at 17%, Berkeley at 31%, and Michigan at 40%, and I've been accepted to all 3, so I'm starting to question MyLSN's value for my cycle)

Yeah, just about the same here. I applied 9/16, and a splitter. Congrats on Berkeley! I had heard they were GPA sticklers and didn't apply.

I still don't know how to use MyLSN to calculate these things; can anyone give me a rundown quick either here or via PM? Sorry to sound so ignorant

Thank you!! I heard the same thing and was shocked by the acceptance. I've been working in (and plan to continue working in) a field that they are strong in, so I think that might have helped. But who knows! This whole process still makes very little sense to me.
