No. Michigan does the same thing with some of their applicant pool, and tons of people get in from that (I did with $). If it was a hold they would say hold! I think they are just slow and want to send something out to people who have been waiting for months!


Okay, good to know! Thank you.

nvm just got it! so my email isn't completely faulty

I also just got mine. My guess is that they tried to blast out 1000+ emails and it flooded the server.

finally got the email. sigh.

I applied for a scholarship and went hard, but never sent a specific "Why X" essay (and definitely could) - will it hurt to do so now?

Just got the email. Applied early January, UR1 since 1/20. Wondering if they sent these to everybody since (a) I have not been under review for that long and (b) NYU is a reach for me with my stats.

Thanks god...my heart felt like it almost stopped.

For reference, I just received this email (stats: 173 & international superior).

Is not getting the email a sure sign that you're not getting in? I just need to know so that I can give up already :/

Personally, I don't see how that kind of addition to an application would really push them in a different direction. I don't have experience with this personally, but I always think it's best to be patient and respond when they ask you to.


i see - thanks for the solid input. I think at least the e-mail helps to know i'm not an auto-ding? maybe? sorta? kind of? hopefully? :cry:

I'm chill! But last year, the three individuals who reported not getting an email were waitlisted or rejected. So I'm just asking for a bit of clarity lol.

You'll probably get it if you haven't already. Thought I was left out somehow since I'm east coast yet still hadn't received one. Got it like 20 minutes ago.

I didn't get the e-mail nor is it listed on my status checker. I applied in November and am UR3 as of this week.

Interesting. My stats are good. LSAT above 75th, GPA between 50th and 25th.

There's no change to my status checker and no email. Is anyone else in this same situation? Seems like all of you got emails. Oh lordy.

Yeah this is how I feel. I don't think I should be auto-ding because of my stats (both between 50th and 75th), but I see nothing on my status checker.

If they don't send this email to people they're going to reject, shouldn't we have a rejection email by now :(

Admissions Assistant 1: "Hey, watch this. I'm gonna send out this email to half the applicants."

Admissions Assistant 2: "Which ones?"

AA1: "Oh, I dunno. Just picking some at random."

AA2: "That's sick, man."

AA1: "I know..."



I chuckled lol

I wonder if they sit around watching us act like the world is ending over an email. Surely a few of them browse here just for shits and giggles.
