IN! and so pumped. 173 and 3.51 ED, which means I'm at the 75% and below the 25%, so keep hope alive, other minor splitters! I'm on the west coast and my letter was dated 12/1 like everyone else.

That makes two (you and columbiagirl) ED acceptances in my range. Getting nervous.

Shouldn't you be the opposite of nervous after receiving this news?? Surely it's just a matter of time now. BTW, PM'ed you.

Hmmm.

Optimistic me: Sweet, the acceptances that I'm bound to be in are sent. Can't wait to see that envelope in the mail tomorrow/Wednesday!

Pessimistic me: Every day that goes by increases the likelihood I wasn't in this batch, which (if this is the only batch of ED acceptances) implies I'm out.

It seems like a lot of the acceptances have been RD, so I'm sure that we'll see more ED after this group.

Ugh there a daunting gap on LSN between 3.8 and 4.0 GPA for people with a 169 which I hope to fill tomorrow.

In RD -- my letter was sent the same day as your letters, but it took forever to arrive! Am super excited b/c I used to live right by the law school and certainly wouldn't mind going back :)

Congrats! I hope that means there's hope yet for a reverse splitter like me!

For those of you who got it....did you write an NYU-specific personal statement/addendum?

No.

EDIT: I didn't feel that they especially appreciated such statements. Their LSAT / GPA graph generally shows very consistent admission patterns, leading me to hypothesize that stats >>>>>> softs in their calculations.

Congrats!! Can I inquire, how was the envelope sent to you - USPS Priority, First Class or a courier service? I'm based abroad as well (Asia) and so wanted to have an idea of how long I should wait before giving up hope.

And yes, you can apply for a scholarship later as well. I think you need to submit your essay by the 1st of January, and you can e-mail it to the admissions office directly.

not exactly - they didn't really ask for the same kind of "optional essays" that a lot of other schools did.
However i had a couple things that i wanted to point out, so I sent a "supplementary information" page explaining why i was out of work for several months (laid off, not related to performance) and that i come from a working class family and I am the first to pursue a graduate degree
Etc.

I hate to highjack the thread away from the positive vibes of recent acceptances...congrats to all! I sent in my app in mid-november and received an e-mail telling me that they received my app on Nov. 17. I still haven't gotten a complete e-mail. I know NY schools lag a little, but does the gap in time seem unusual? Should I call the admissions office (I haven't had overly-positive experiences in the past with the NYU admissions office...) Thanks!

It's maybe slightly long but not extraordinary, especially with the Thanksgiving holiday. I'd give them a little more time before contacting them...say a week or so.

same purple envelope everyone gets, red postage mark from december 3rd, "presorted first class." not sure who delivered (ups, fedex, etc) cause mail gets delivered to the concierge, she just slipped it under my door.
