Ah, didn't see this guy. Well, maybe a few people did receive WLs so far. The big wave hasn't arrived yet, though, that's for sure.

Face it, we're all getting waitlisted.

Just withdrew from NYU, giving up 67.5k IP scholarship, hopefully this helps some of you. Good luck!

I only just noticed that NYU's Intention to Enroll form says (in bold) "and have withdrawn from other law schools to which I was admitted."

I'm waitlisted at S and Chi... does this mean I can't pay my deposit at NYU and stay on the waitlists?

Gosh this is so annoying, it doesn't look like anyone else does this (at least Penn, NU, Duke and Cornell don't...)

Admitted does not equal wait list. You can stay on them.

Yes, I see nothing in that language which says you must withdraw from waitlists.

according to admissions, more acceptances ARE coming.


NYU is trolling us, seriously, do you expect any less from these guys? I am coming up on my 28th week after application submittal. Normal (read: non-sadistic) people do not make not make other people wait this long.

I agree that it's hard to imagine a regular, "on the merits"-type acceptance at this point in the game. But I could see NYU waiting until the last minute as a sort of semi-WL, i.e. looking for a few final admits to round out the class in the event of a lower-than-expected yield on, say, applicants that had scholarship offers. Once it becomes clear that they're on track to hit their yield goals, mass WLs would follow, to be reevaluated only after the true yield becomes known.

As long as they get it over with... I honestly don't believe any delay will change the results at this point.

Got a letter in the mail yesterday from the dean that was dated March 9th, with a NYU Law magazine. First item I've gotten since the BPE. Seems like their offices are all kinds of backed up. The letter said more materials were forthcoming and encouraged me to visit for an ASW event, which are all now over.

i guess their admissions office is as bad as Fordham's (the deposit deadline was yesterday and they never sent anyone acceptance packages, which were promised in the acceptance letters).

Yeah, Fordham is funny. I withdrew via e-mail and then got a decision three weeks later via e-mail. They then sent me a book about the school and another info package, but I never received an official acceptance letter in the mail. I guess we can take these mishaps with a grain of salt, as the admissions office does not necessarily represent the rest of the school, but it would be nice if they had their stuff together.

agreed. i am totally ready to attend fordham despite their organizational shortcomings, and would obviously be MORE than ready to attend NYU despite theirs. (DO YOU HEAR ME, NYU?)

anyone have any ideas about why nyu fell to #6 this year? i was planning on attending nyu over chicago, and the rankings aren't especially important to me, but i'm wondering if there's anything behind it that i should know about -- i get that the difference between 5 and 6 is negligible, rankings aren't meaningful in cases of such a small difference, and nyu has consistently been in the top 5, but i've thought of nyu as an "upward-trajectory" school so this surprised me a little.
