All right, sorry if this was asked above by another worried applicant, but at what point other than receiving a notification from NYU can I logically assume I am waitlisted or rejected? 168/3.94 PR, applied in mid October. In UG, but above-average softs and DS material.
This might be out of the ballpark, but do you think being in the immediate vicinity of NYU/CLS would hurt my chances somewhat (because they want to achieve geographic diversity)?

No. Geographic diversity doesn't have any effect on USNWR rankings.


Analytical Reasoning:

18.

What is the hidden assumption in this argument?

A) USNWR rankings are the only way that people evaluate law schools.
B) Geographical diversity is defined by being in a 50-mile radius of the school.
C) NYU /CLS are only interested in factors that are demonstrated to have an impact on the USNWR rankings.
D) Law schools never care about factors that don't have an impact on the USNWR rankings.
E) USNWR rankings are unlikely to be affected a school's geographical diversity at any time in the future.

The answer is C.

I'm really sorry if someone already asked this, but does NYU send a status checker? I got an email a few days after I applied on 1/5 saying they'd received my app, but I haven't gotten a complete email or a status checker. Is that normal?

Has anyone who did not receive a complete email get admitted to NYU yet?

No status checker, and yes, it's normal to not receive a complete email.


Thanks. :) How dare they not give me something to obsessively check every five minutes...

Oh, but they did. It's the admitted students website. I won't give it to you though, as I don't want to be responsible for your lost time.

depends on your GPA, & whether or not your new LSAT bumps you above their median :wink:


Eh, I think that NYU would be impressed that you got their question right. :D

Wow, they have a high median. Give me another question so I can at least match it.

But where is the evidence that they do care about anything other than rankings?


Analytical Reasoning:

19.

What is the reasoning flaw in the conclusion drawn by blue3585?

A) He fails to adequately define the terms "evidence" and "rankings."
B) He confuses the situation that there is no proof that an assertion is true with the situation that there is proof that the assertion is false.
C) He confuses a hypothesis with a fact supported by evidence.
D) He assumes that law school admissions operate according to a system that is easily comprehensible to the average mortal.
E) He assumes that NYU and CLS are not distinguishable from any other law school in their admissions practices.

The answer is B.

:wink:

Hrm, I would have thought there's a better answer than B. Thanks though, your question put me at the LSAT median now! I will put that in my LOCI tomorrow.
