it's difficult for me because on one hand, I hate the living fuck out of NYU and on the other, I'd sell portions of my body in a developing nation's black market to get accepted.

they asked you that without having first offered admission? I would have been like "What's it to you, sis?"
my god they have some nerve.

They did the same thing to me!
It took everything in my power to not throw in some serious "well...if you would ever just get back to me..." shade

Maybe they were going to admit you and now they're second guessing their strategy of playing hard to get

They didn't ask their app fee back?! If they paid it.

They need to be second guessing a whole lot more.

I hope that traffic to TLS increases so much so that more and more people discover applying to NYU is not a simple headache, it is a total nightmare.

Are you entitled to that if they don't give a decision ?

I'll definitely ask. I paid for a consideration/service. I should hear about the decision at least by their orientation day.
We have application deadline. They should have deadline too. Right?

I'd add every email of every member of the admissions team to the New York Law School mailing list if this happens to me. Then every month, I'd add it to a new school for perpetuity or at least till I get bored.

if y'all don't mind not quoting the story I'd appreciate it (sorry for not originally requesting this); I will leave my original post here so more people can read it but I don't want it memorialized

but yeah... that really happened. she's not even going to appeal because she settled on going somewhere else but still. it's ridiculous.

Doesn't sound like an appeal would have worked out anyway...they would have just given her an instant rejection instead of the $500 refund.
