[/quote] I'm only thinking about adding the other 2 pages because I'm very borderline numbers-wise for NYU - 3.6/171 means I'm not very confident.[/quote]
Dude, you are pretty much me. I only did a 2 page PS with two short addenda. Now have a fat purple envelope sitting on my desk at home. Don't sell yourself short. Channel all the energies that you expend on self-loathing into writhing a kickass personal statement that touches on NYU's soft spot of diversity/internationalism. Honestly, I am 99% sure that my two page PS was what made the difference. Honestly, soft factors are bullshit except in your very unique case.
Anyways, enough about you, lets talk about me

I still haven't received anything else (although I suppose something could be waiting for me at school when I get back from break). How long did it take everybody else to get any additional information? Has anybody heard anything about ASD?
I received a copy of a campus magazine about a week following the arrival of my purple envelope. No word on ASD yet though. I'm sure more information will me coming in the near future...
Things I learned
*Epstein is probably teaching next year (though no one seems to know quite what). Yes, I'm obsessed, so sue me (er, not that I want a bunch of NYU educated lawyers suing my ass).
*NYU has the best Criminal Law program in the country. Did not know this and this is awesome as white collar crim def is definitely one of the 3 or 4 specialties that I most have my eye on.
I need to get back to reading the magazine they sent me now but congrats to everyone who got in this round. Does us getting our package at the same time as an acceptance wave mean that we will get zee viewbook when the next wave of acceptances goes out? Only time will tell.
