I'm in the same boat -- 3.84/168, non-URM, complete 11/03. I've been waitlisted at both Chicago and Columbia in the past month, expecting the same from NYU...really, really keeping my fingers crossed.

yup, there are a few of us. i'm assuming we're headed for waitlist-ville come april.[/quote]


I don't know...but I'm thinking it's a waitlist too. You guys mind sharing numbers so we get an idea on our group?

I'm 165/3.8 URM, with what I believe are some interesting softs.[/quote][/quote]

I'm 168/4.02 with solid softs...still waiting....WTF?

Very pleased, but there was no invitation to apply for scholarships (as I believe others have gotten).


The invitation to the Dean's scholarship came via email separately from the offer of admission. In any case, the deadline for submitting the merit aid application has passed (was 2/24).


I thought it was April 1st. That's what it said on the website. Where did you get 2/24?


4/1 is for need-based financial aid only. the invitation email to apply for merit aid states a 2/24 deadline.

Don't lose hope Gah. A dear friend of mine scored low 160s on first LSAT and then low 170s 2nd LSAT. They got into NYU. I also had an LSAT re-take. I hope you get your offer of admission soon. :)

I'm also an LSAT retaker. Low 160s on the first, low 170s on the second. 3.7+ GPA, non-URM.

If you look at LSN it seems as if there are historically very few T14 acceptances in March. I'm still waiting on NYU, UVA, Penn, Cornell, Chicago, Berkeley, Northwestern after applying mid-late Dec. Should be a suspenseful month ahead.

Regarding the merit aid deadline of 2/24, I have a hard time they wouldn't extend that for people admitted after 2/24.

thanks NM :) it seems NYU is very random with how they deal with retakes.

That was for the named scholarships, I believe. The merit/need-based aid application is due 4/1.

how do you know they update the AS website? what time does this occur?

on another note, does NYU usually hold out to reject people in bulk? because i submitted my application a long time ago and have yet to hear back...

So if you haven't heard back about any named scholarships by now, does that mean you didn't get one?

I thought the deadline to apply for the named scholarships was 1/1.

it seems like people have been able to log into the admitted students site on wednesday afternoons, generally.

So I have very very very little chance of getting into NYU, but a few people with my LSAT and TTT GPA have been accepted. Should I bother sending them an LOCI saying they are my absolute top choice, blah blah blah, or just wait for my rejection letter? (I want to work in PI.)

Ditto to that, NYU please take me tomorrow. What happened to the 3.5+ 172 love you guys showed last year when it seemed to be auto-admit? What have I done to offend you so? Please please take meeee, you're my top choice! Ps, does NYU tend to send out acceptances until the end of march, or after a certain point is it only waitlists and rejections

Honestly, I am not 100% sure, as I didn't not apply for those (I submitted my app after 1/1). But I think there was some kind of 2/24 deadline for something with regards to those scholarships. The NYU Institutional Aid form is not due to 4/15 (I was off about the 4/1 date), per the admitted students site.

"April 15th Deadline for completing the Institutional Financial Aid Application."

From what I understand, that is for Merit and Need-Based Aid.

I am dreading a future Wednesday when no one is accepted and all hope is lost. I pray today isn't that day.
