Was everyone admitted UR2 or did some go to DLS straight from UR1? I've been UR1 since October 30th. LSAT >75th, no GPA (international)

I'm above both 75ths, should I be worried? I'm KJD...

edit: submitted three weeks ago, received by nyu on halloween.


I'm in the identical boat re: above both 75ths. UR1 since 10/23 and crickets. I take heart from all the wise words of our compadres.


Same here, down to the UR1 date

In order to receive a merit based scholarship, do you need to apply for fin. aid? My understanding was that fin. aid is need based.

I submitted in September and have been UR2 since late October. Almost everyone in the first DLS wave was at/above both 75ths so it seems like your numbers are a far better indicator of turnaround time than when you go UR2.

Not likely, but last year a wave released the week after the holiday.

I got a physical letter about my acceptance today. Just a single page, but in a large purple (of course!) envelope.

There was a nice handwritten note from Dean Williams on it as well. Is that the norm, as with Georgetown?

It's kind of funny how seeing a personal note can have you about ready to pack your stuff and head off to the school, even knowing it's just part of their usual process lol

Went to DLS this morning. I checked it early this morning so they must have changed it shortly before calling.
