I called about 2 weeks ago and NYU said my app was processing. I have not gotten a complete email from them yet and its been almost a month. On the website it said not to email them about the status of your application. I want to know if I'm complete should I call and has anyone else been waiting for a complete email this long?

First acceptances will be sent out some time this week (historically Tuesday or Wednesday). More acceptances will come in later weeks for candidates with numbers that are not auto-admit. First rejections probably won't come until March.

It was about a month after I applied that I got a complete email (and I eventually got in). Nothing to worry about.

Big purple envelope...easily the most obvious of any acceptances

Rejections are small white envelopes, FWIW.

Hope I won't have to speak from experience on that one. NYU, I love you. Please love me, too.

I got the email a week or two ago. Sounds like a good event. I'm already RSVP'd.

I just got my fall grades into LSAC, so no telling how long it will take NYU to get them and then make a decision. I wouldn't expect to hear anything this month.

Yes. There's no status checker, and NYU often misses people with their complete e-mails. Presumably, you went complete on 1/20 along the rest of the 1/12-received crowd.


Thanks again for this. For anyone else worried about this, I called today and this is exactly what happened. They confirmed that I'm complete but didn't say when.

Thanks for the gouge. I was on the fence about going due to the logistics (I live in San Diego), but it's starting to sound worthwhile.

Complete on 12/22...applied about 6 weeks prior. Nothing yet. Probably not good?

Kidding. I wouldn't read into it too much. You're probably set at NYU.

There was at least one admit from that batch as late as March last year.

That was amazing. "LOL" doesn't do it justice. I'm still laughing. :D

(P.S. Really? "Set" at NYU? I was expecting a big fat ding for real.)

I don't know. You got into Berkeley with a strong LSAT and sub 25th GPA, which I would assume is much more of an uphill battle than NYU. Good luck, either way.

P.S. in some thread I think someone posted that NYU accepted almost every 172 / 3.6 candidate last cycle. Aren't you right around there?

Gives me hope. Did you do anything special for Berk, Tangerine?

You have to withdraw your apps after you get accepted ED.

Have fun at Duke.

I didn't do anything special...I just am special.












:D

But in all seriousness...I added a Berk-specific section to my PS (although this is not necessary and many don't do this) and I had my LOR writers do a Berk-tailored letter (which I imagine also isn't that big of a deal). I guess I made it obvious that I really love the school.

In general, though, I worked really, really hard on my PS and put it through many drafts over many months. I'm pretty confident that this has been a big part of bringing a cycle which has fared better than the odds had predicted.

EDIT: But I still anticipate an NYU ding.

Anyone know if applying (and submitting an essay for) a scholars program (crim law, environmental, etc.) could account for a longer review period, or do they admit you first, notify you, and then begin considering you for any scholarships you applied for?

Hrmm, it would be interesting to see if that's the case. I applied for one, and just got fall grade request last week. Anyone who applied to these programs received a (quick) response?
