Those are NYU's median numbers. You're not a stretch.
Gah sorry, I'm not trying to be dramatic, I'm just realllly hoping for NYU, and the wait is making me so nervous! Hopefully the complete e-mail is just neutral.
It is. They admit a new batch every week, and there are at least six weeks of regular admissions left in the cycle, plus some stragglers in late March and into April. You'll begin to have a shot at admission next week, although the people who get in after just one week tend to be auto-admits. I wouldn't worry until it's been at least three or four weeks since your complete date.
My numbers are above their median and well above their 75th, respectively, and I missed the first week of admits for my complete group. I just got in yesterday.
