I like the optimism. I looked on LSN, and it seemed like there were several waves of acceptance letters in December last year. Keepin' the hope alive.

I have such hopeless anxiety, that I have talked myself into the idea that the lady at the front desk lied to me because she didn't want to be bothered, and a mailing is on its way.

I heard that if you bring them cookies, it will expedite the process.

Looks like last year on LSN, rejections didn't start coming steadily (though still in between a lot of acceptances) till 1/15... so a decision mailed around now is probably a good sign!

...which is also why I've avoided calling. Because it'd be really embarrassing to be laughed at by someone random over the phone about how there's no chance in hell that I'm getting a decision anytime soon, and to know what that really means.

How long does it take for people to get a decision from nyu after receiving the notice of completion email? I got my email 12/8, so I'm hoping for a decision soon. Are rejections via email or letter? Does anyone know?

You were complete two days ago, and you expect a decision soon? Unless you're ED, I doubt it (but I understand your desire for efficiency).

I went about a month between completion and decision.

by some conjecture and lsn, it looks like the first wave of RDs may be done and the rest of the decisions will be for us ED folk. since you just went complete, i would have to say that you are not in the first wave of RDs and won't be hearing until the new year.

Isn't that what TLS is for? :-)
Not to worry, according to LSN, last year's acceptances for Nov. applicants came all the way through Xmas, and some even after...

Actually, I applied 10/17. :oops: But went complete 11/03, too. I actually think I'm going to quit TLS until finals are over. This is taking a nasty toll on my GPA. :P

+1. but camping out by my mailbox everyday waiting for my purple envelope only to be spat on by the mailman everyday is making finals similarly impossible to focus on.
