no FB group that i know of. since you are undecided, what will your decision be based off of?

here's an interesting question:

of those admitted, who is URM and who is not?

Answering some of the questions:

1. Yes, definitely going.
2. I am planning to go to the Feb event.
3. Yes for advanced degree (M.A.)
4. Not URM

for those of you that are on hold, did you just get an email from NU about your application status? it seems that it's a glitch cause it's still the hold letter.

I got this too. They conveniently sent it at 5pm, so when I called admissions to inquire as to if there had been an actual update to my app, nobody was there to answer. Now that I see you got the email too it either means we both got a decision atthe same time, or this is the email we were supposed to get when we were put on hold. My logn still produces the hold letter as well.

I'm assuming the email just came late. I got pretty excited for nothing at all. Has anyone on hold heard anythin legit., or is the consensus still that we will be waiting until seat deposits are due before we get an update?

I was real pissed when I got the email cause I thought they rejected me already even though I'm still working on my LOCI.

I got an email too and I'm already accepted...it was probably a glitch.

any new news?

I know, that's redundant. News, by definition, is new. But it's fun to say out loud.

Anyhow; acceptances, dings, word about hold? anyone call admissions and ask what's up?

There is an official facebook group - http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=11806188#!/group.php?gid=272676499424. I'm not sure if it is limited to those that have been accepted.

I called to see if those of us on "hold" need to do anything.

We don't.

Just keep holding.

Just got accepted into the AJD from the regular 3-year admits. Pretty excited, and baring a NYU admission before March 15th I'll definitely be there!

Not sure, but with the March 15th deposit deadline they have to be letting you know soon.. and I can't see how they could waitlist anyone, so you will at least get a yes or a no (which I find kind of nice.. I hate all these waitlists)

AJDs are over here -> http://www.top-law-schools.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=96502&p=2649628#p2649628

Also, they don't post very often. There is one, however that you can contact about being added to the AJD facebook group.


I requested to be added to the AJD facebook group, is there anyone here who could approve it?

I'm starting to wonder if I'm fooling myself in thinking that being on hold for the AJD program gives me any chance to still be admitted. Especially when I see they are offering regular JD applicants spots in the AJD program.

one person has reported being rejected. This info is all I've got in terms of people from this forum, but via other sources i know of around 23 people admitted. I cannot say if the 23 i know of and the 10 here are exclusive of each other; there may be overlap since I have no way to map identities to monikers.

But Dick Whitman has said the total admitted is already larger than last year's class.

I'm not too optimistic after reading this.
