Basically, the notion that they would not accept an applicant with high numbers who seems like an otherwise great fit because they fear they might go elsewhere just sounds dumb. I think YP is thrown around a lot on TLS to make people feel better about not getting into a place they thought they would get into when there are a whole host of other reasons - not being a good fit/the particular admissions person who read your file not being super excited about you being chief among them - that can lead to that outcome.


I mean, ignoring the part where Mich and NYU are completely different schools, I don't know why you would encourage someone to believe that there are flaws in their application that would cause a ding rather than letting them believe that they are an excellent candidate who may be overqualified for a school. I didn't suggest YP for self-soothing purposes, but I don't see how making someone feel better is a bad thing. We're all anxious enough as it is.


Yeah, I'm not getting the argumentative nature this conversation has taken, lol. I guess tensions are just high because people are feeling anxious?! :shock:


wasn't trying to be argumentative in the least! just was saying at some point in the rankings, YP logically should stop being an explanation and it comes down to luck of who reads your file/intangibles/a number of other things. i happen to think it's overused and that we should be totally fine with saying, hey sometimes shit happens and you don't get in even though your numbers suggest you had a great shot. wasn't calling out anyone/targeting them in particular in making that observation.

to the kitty: yes thank you for defining the obvious that michigan and nyu are different schools, just was using that post from an admissions officer with years of experience to make a broader point.


I think your analysis is on point. I don't think YP is nearly as much of a reason for rejections as people on this site suggest. There are many reasons someone might not be admitted, and not necessarily due to a "flaw" in their application. Anyway, I think you made a good point in a non-argumentative way.

According to MS9, it's a pretty good year to apply late. I don't think we ever confirmed it was a counter cycle but even if it's not beneficial to apply late, I have to imagine that given the signs of a counter cycle are there, the relative consequences to applying late are at least diminished.

That being said, I'd definitely apply soon...but I'm under the impression that applying now isn't too late at all.

Just found out my grandfather graduated NYU law. I emailed them but do you think it matters at all? I think they're the only ones who asked for that info on the application...

If it's not required, then no need to update.
Also a lot of schools ask such questions.
