I am STILL UR1 10/31/16 and I'm genuinely getting concerned that they forgot me or lost my app.

I'm UR2 1/1 and haven't heard--also curious about other folks.


I was UR2 1/2 and got in on the 1/10 wave.

Does it makes sense to add additional content, such as sending another LOCI, before getting an answer?

UR2 10/28 and complete silence. I know they only waitlist in like April....

it is certainly acceptable to send a LOCI before an answer. I can't remember where I read it but some deans encourage it if you submitted your app awhile ago. I would not send more than one though unless a major update on your application happens

I got all excited seeing this and then Googled to see examples... and it reversed course! I honestly don't know the answer to what you should do, but the internet experts say "think long and hard about it" and "never never never" to sending LOCI's before a decision has been reached.

Sorry, what if it's an additional LOR?

I sent 3 but had an additional 4th one in reserve. Just really trying anything that would bolster my chances.

UR1 since 10/11. Above 75th LSAT/GPA.

So I revel in my limbo and sneer at all the "forgotten" November UR2s... Mwauahahaha.

KKdk, I'm an RTK hopeful and was wondering if you had any insight about when we could expect to hear back about interviews? Aside from the generic February - mid-March that's posted on the website. Thanks!!



Applications are being read very, very, very, soon. Before end of this month. They will continue to get read till we get through all of them, and I suppose you can expect invites to go out late February, early March. The reason why it's vague is because we are never sure how many tiebreaks we have to do in Round 1, and after reading the hundreds of applications we get, we still have to send out about 60-70 invites. Making that call is very tough.

I can safely say that for the next 3 weeks, you won't hear from us.

Thank you for the quick reply! That makes sense...I'm glad you read them carefully, I'm just excited/hopeful/impatient! Of the folks who apply, are there many with significant demonstrated PI interest/experience who don't get interviews? I feel like my resume (both in terms of work experience and "extracurricular" commitments outside of work) is pretty solid, but don't want to get my hopes up if the competition is fierce.

Hard to say. We're making a >50% cut in the first go, so yes, people with significant experience are just statistically speaking going to be cut in Round 1. Commitment, consistency, level of responsibility you took on, are all important factors. Compelling personal narratives also play a role. Diversity plays a big role, in a more nuanced fashion than URM box-ticking. Sometimes, lack of experience because you're K-JD can be compensated by work in school, or coursework, or even grades. By and large, most Roots have post-grad experience of some kind, that also linked to significant work during school, and those that are K-JD, did a significant amount of work during school. If you think you have significant PI interest, you have a good shot at an interview. But competition is tough, I won't lie. But everyone gets a fair shake.

If you are admitted late (like around March) is there a chance at an RTK scholarship?

Not sure if you have insight to this, but would you say that this general sentiment/procedure would apply for all named scholarships as well? Thanks for answering questions!

So should I send them a 4th LOR to get out of 10/28 UR2 or will that just look annoying :?

Hey-- thanks for answering Qs. If we hear back from admissions after RTK review starts, is our app still considered? i.e. if we receive an acceptance from NYU mid-Feb for example, does our RTK app still make it to the scholarship review phase or is there a date cut-off for program consideration?

I had an informational interview with an ad com member there in September and she confirmed what kkdk had said earlier in this thread: if you're admitted late there is basically zero chance you'll be considered for RTK. The ad com person said "if you're not admitted by March" there's no hope. I did not clarify as to whether it means "before March 1" or "before March 31", but I'm guessing the former.
