I see the best in people to a fault, but I'm thinking maybe they are understaffed/had an unexpected number of apps and are just overloaded. I can't imagine they would do this on purpose. It would be nice if they would release a statement saying something to that effect.


TBH, everything I have heard about NYU on this forum and elsewhere seems to indicate that the administrative staff at the university isn't necessarily the most efficiently organized.


True, but I also hear that about pretty much every single school... :P

Being understaffed/overloaded could only explain why those who applied later haven't heard anything, not why those of us who applied before the holidays have been ghosted. It really is pathetic on NYU's part to have left people hanging since October and November - I've seen more productivity at even the most poorly managed DMVs.


they had like 6800 applications last year. I don't think their application number is unexpected this year unless that number somehow magically doubled

AFAIK, the only people who are seeing the WL letter sent or whatever went UR a day or two ago. You're probably waitlisted, fam.

Hale, I'ma let you finish but NYU had the most unprofessional and unethical admissions practice of all time in the year of our lord 2017.


No denying that! I just like to look for light in the darkness lmao :wink:

So, this is my first post, but I've been following this thread since my SO is an applicant this cycle. I was just wondering why are people so mad about the long notification process? It seems that NYU has been transparent about how long it takes them to go through applications.

Candidates who apply by our regular February 15 deadline (must have taken the LSAT by the previous December to qualify) will be notified by late April. Candidates may hear sooner than late April, but we cannot make such a guarantee.


It's still late April.

Also, for people who applied in Oct/Nov and haven't heard anything while people who applied later in the cycle have...

Applications are sent to the Committee on Admissions in the order in which they are completed, but decisions are not necessarily made in the order in which applications are first reviewed.


Am I missing something? I think I'm stressing my SO out because he hasn't heard yet but there doesn't seem to be cause for alarm.
