Another anti-climatic trip to the mailbox.

Unless you consider the offer for 0.9% financing for a year. (Congratulations to me, I've been pre-approved)

i was thinking of sending in a last minute email LOCI. i applied in december (also to Root Tilden Kern-which i never heard back about, at all), and have heard not one word. i thought i had a pretty good chance (3.6, 171), and NYU was my number one choice.

anyway, my question is, is it worth it to send a letter? or should i just wait for the waitlist notice...

Hi all - Just called to check on the status of my app and the very nice woman who answered told me that my decision had been mailed and that I should expect it sometime next week...

Now kicking myself for not asking if they are still admitting people...

I dont know if I ever wrote this, but even with my Chicago offer, NYU rejected my appeal for any aid. So I officially withdrew a few days ago!

sorrrrrrryyyyyyyyy... seriously, I don't think at this point in the game you'll lose a thing by calling. If anything, if you guys unionize and call all at once they won't even be able to keep track :wink:

I'm leaving it entirely up to them... first one to give me any kind of financial aid wins...

I think I might stop by both financial aid offices on Monday and tell them exactly that...

that's a good plan. i happen to think that face time helps. i really think meeting with an officer at fordham helped me get the max scholarship (maybe telling them i was considering UVa helped a little, too).

Just called NYU for laughs...

IW: Hi, my name is IW and I am awesome; I was wondering if NYU has recognized this...

Nice Lady: Unfortunately I cannot tell you if they have or not. I can tell you they are done debating your merits and have sent you a piece of paper to determine your fate.

IW: Oh okay. See here's the thing... I have to accept my scholarship at Georgetown tomorrow morning at 9 AM or lose 60K. If I accept I have to withdraw from your purple palace. Please give me more info.

Nice Lady: Unfortunately I cannot tell you anything at all. I can be pleasant though.

IW: Okay. Well can you tell me if they made a decision on this Tuesday or earlier?

Nice Lady: Well I can't really tell you that...

IW: Has the response been in the mail since Tuesday?

Nice Lady: Yes.

IW: Does the Admitted Student's Website still update every Wednesday?

Nice Lady: Yes. It should update at least once a week on Wednesdays, and maybe more.

IW: Okay. Thank you.

The end. A sad ending, to be sure.

I am sorry that you had a fairly unproductive phone call. However, this post made me laugh hard enough that I am almost positive you've gained some karmic advantage...or something
