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.


FML. FOL, really. :cry:

but this was super-amusing!

Just got the mail....Waitlist. I will definitely be hanging in there on this one. For some reason I feel like there is a little hope on this waitlist. I don't feel the same way about Columbia's. Anyway, we will see.

LSN stats from prior years (excluding last year) support what you're saying. NYU places significantly less people on the WL and accepts far more than CLS. Someone made an official comparison of the two last year, and NYU WL admits >> CLS by a big margin...

EDIT: sorry misread you the first time :-)

Actually, LSN stats from prior years (excluding last year) seem to indicate the opposite. NYU places significantly less people on the WL and accepts far more than CLS. Someone made an official comparison of the two last year, and NYU WL admits >> CLS by a big margin...


Yeah sorry I wasn't clear. I meant there is at least a little hope on this waitlist as opposed to virtually no hope on Columbia's haha....

167/3.8 Strong softs (own my own business). As far as i'm concerned all of these schools are ridiculous reaches. A year ago I would have laughed if anyone said I would have been WL at a top 5 and accepted into top 20's with money. Definitely excited to even be considered.

in the biggest WTF moment of my cycle, REJECTED by NYU. i was pretty sure i'd be waitlisted. maybe the 2 LOCIs i sent before my decision were a turn-off? who knows. strange cycle, indeed.

168/3.9 (took LSAT only once)
TTT public school, graduated last year
lots of ECs and internships
working full-time this year

got into UVa and got rejected by NYU. weird.

good luck, guys. it's been real :D
