Does anyone know if all the rejection e-mails hit at one or do they typically filter in throughout the day?

Not looking forward to checking my e-mail every 23 seconds at work today :|

Lol well I mention two days ago that the first wave of rejections last year was 2/1 so it's based on their usual timing

Well, in all this, I realize I forgot to say the one thing you ought to have heard before our self-centered questions: sorry about the ding. What other options are you working with right now?

UCLA, GULC, UTA, Vandy, WashU, still waiting on a few, and a few waitlists higher up. About what I'd expect with my numbers. Good luck to all here!

This was my second UR date, no ding notification yet :shock: is my fate decided ?

Your UR date is not related to acceptance at all. No worries.

I wouldn't say no hope...but it's dwindling.

See below:

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.



TITCR. It isn't ideal, I'll admit. But given how the general cycle plays out, we need to know who our interviewees are at least a couple of weeks before the interviews, so we can handle logistics effectively/efficiently. We also have to get interview panels ready (you interview with about 6 people at a time, and many are alums, professors, scholarship sponsors with tight schedules (Part of my scholarship is funded by Sullivan and Cromwell and the partner there insists on interviewing). So accommodating all of these things, not to mention the fact that so late in the cycle, Root offerees are making decisions between RTK and Rubies, RTK and Yale, RTK and Darrow, etc. I know at least one offeree that decided between the Root and not going to law school that year, too (they picked the latter, btw, and are now at Harvard) Taking all of that into account, we just have to pick a date after which we don't consider applicants.

Accepted without mention of the named scholarship :(, does that mean I'm out?


No. Guys, if you just looked through this thread, you would have answers to these questions! Named scholarship interview requests go out in Feb/March. You have to be accepted before you can be requested to interview. You will not hear about the interview or a decision about the scholarship with your acceptance to NYU generally. This info is also found on NYU's website.

I know I'm being a little harsh, but I sometimes wonder why someone doesn't go back and attempt to find the answer in the thread before asking it. We've covered almost everything here. There is also a search function.

I'm gonna assume part of it is just people are anxious.
