Probably definitely for yield protection. They are accepting people who they think NYU will be their best option (best ranked acceptance). For people above both 75ths... they assume applicants are hoping for Columbia, HYS (NYU safety)... Unless maybe a Why NYU essay was included?

Welp, I got the email and I'm still not DLS today. UR1 since 11/2. Mildly peeved. But at least I have my JS1 interview today, so I'm not too shaken.

Hey, just to add a statistic here, I am UR2 as of 12/26, did not receive an email, and did NOT receive DLS today.

I'm above both 75ths for NYU with a DLS today (though that decision could be WL or ding lol but I'm trying to stay positive), but I submitted a Why NYU. Also didn't get the still reviewing email last week.

On another note, how far above both 75ths would one need to be for consideration for the Vanderbilt scholarship and other merit aid (without having applied for RTK et al)? I'm having trouble finding stats on people who've gotten it!

Congrats to everyone who just went DLS!

In other news...I went UR3 today?
UR1 in October, UR2 in December, no email last week

Any thoughts?

UR1 is the date when your status changes to Under Com Review.


Right so I meant to ask whether it's normal that there was no "complete" status change/date. I went straight from "Processing file" to "Under Review".

Me too. UR2 12/30, did not get the email, and no DLS today. I bet they're enjoying watching us try to crack a code that most likely doesn't exist :/

I posted this on reddit and hope I am not speaking too soon, but for the last 2 years, everyone who heard back in January was accepted.

You didn't get the email because you're going to hear soon... it's not a code. Okay so not today's DLS wave, but either later this week or next. It's coming very soon. Much sooner than everyone else who got the email.
