Help us make LSD better!
Tell us what's important to you

whoa a bunch of withdrawals today
Anyone else still under review?
I'm assuming WL is the best case scenario for us at this point right? Seems like all the As are done.
I’m under review as well smh
When will NYU return from war
Literally applied ED October 3 bruh
Also I’m a guy but when I sent my LOCI they replied w the female version of my name 😞
oh well they said late April so I'm gonna wait until next week then follow up
We should all hear by Friday considering they're closed Saturday and Sunday
Just confused if it's good or bad that they're sitting on our apps
Mine is an ED app from September
I'm confused also but like it doesn't seem like a good thing lol
Yeah it's definitely not a good thing lol...I'd love to be optimistic but I think waitlist is the best case scenario at this point
Has anyone been selected for the Jacobson scholarship? Has anyone who interviewed been rejected?
Anyone "Application under review" people left other than me?
@CoolTastefulImpala Right here, applied in September and just beyond pissed off at this point lol
@WashingtonAirportGuy: part of me thinks that I should just write NYU and the other schools I got waitlisted at off and commit, it's better for my mental health.
WL! We did it Joe
For anyone else still under consideration, admissions office just told me remaining decisions will come out over the next few weeks.
(not like that's particularly helpful)
Any one get a jacobson yet?
Does everyone on the NYU WL get an interview
was there already a WL -> rejection wave?
No, some of us don't even have an initial decision yet...I think WL -> rejection happens a lot more slowly and gradually such that there aren't really waves per se but I could be wrong
