Yep, they sure are bastards. A six month wait for a rejection is unacceptable. The applicants they know they want, they snatch up in 2 weeks. I understand that there are borderline candidates who must wait longer, and they usually end up on the WL. But why should someone who gets rejected ever have to wait half a freaking year to hear the word of the almighty from NYU? Though I guess I'm supposed to marvel at the wisdom of their decision, and bow before their greatness anyway.
