Stats are 171 (retaker with an original 161 score), 3.75 GPA plus some decent softs.

That's supposed to be finished by the time the class of 2013 matriculates, though.

Last time I walked by there, it was still a bit construction-y. Couple of weeks ago, I think.

It was still under construction Saturday, but September 1 is still quite a ways off. Not that New York construction projects are necessarily timely -- see, e.g., the 12-year turnaround time on the WTC.

Looks like a reject wave went out recently. Here's hoping for acceptances too!

I am super concerned there will be a rejection in the mail when I get home. I survived yesterday, but I don't live in NYC so...

yeah but don't forget the 170 3.65 that was accepted on Monday. And that was a white male who is still in undergrad. and he applied pretty late.

with every rejection, the odds of the next decision being an acceptance go up! :D *fake pasted-on smile*

There are a few more complications with the WTC site than with fixing up Washington Square Park. I wouldn't be too concerned. Besides, the park was under construction while I was there for grad school and it didn't really affect my experience.

thank the lord, no. I still can't get into the admitted students website, so each day without a rejection letter is another day to try to get in! i want badly to send you those cupcakes.

I'm restraining myself from checking until later this afternoon. It's going to be difficult. I wonder what their administrative turnaround is at the office...from decision to mailing. Anybody have a good guess?

anybody get in yet?

Is it possible NYU just doesn't use a formal waitlist - they just never get back to you.

They have waitlisted precisely one person according to LSN.

http://nyu.lawschoolnumbers.com/stats

Quick update... looking back at last year it looks like everybody who got waitlisted heard back in April. So I would assume the great probability is that anyone still waiting is headed for that fate.

I don't see why a collection of four thousand-foot buildings needs to be any more complicated than fresh sidewalks and benches. Washington Square Park 2018!

But yes, the construction doesn't stretch through the entire park, and there's still plenty of space to enjoy it. I felt very at home there Saturday and realized that I could be extremely happy attending NYU.

yeah, there are definitely many "formal" waitlistees. the reason we are all so hopeful(ish) here is because there were also a handful of students accepted outright at this time last year (March 20 or so) and even some in early April.

'Hopeful(ish)' seems way too optimistic for this thread. Wasn't everyone just contemplating suicide by dessert yesterday?
