Tell us what's important to you
mine changed to that last night
Do we think that's an R? Feels like probably yes
Also got decision letter sent update on status checker. Haven't heard anything yet but seems like possibly an impending R if lots of people are getting this at the same time.
It might just have to do with the status checker being changed
My substatus just changed to applicant confirmed on waitlist
Good looking out @LikeableGiraffe. Here's hoping!
@LikeableGiraffe: I hope you're right but I remember checking earlier yesterday and my status only said "applicant confirmed on waitlist." Guess we'll just have to wait and see, but the suspense is awful...
@LikeableGiraffe: is your status still DLS? and substrates confirmed on waitlist? that is what I have now
Yeah that’s what I have too. Was hoping I was special. Think it’s from the status checker being changed though. The 9am dls=A thing might be dead
Did anyone else get the feeler email just now?
any updates yet from those who got feelers?
Update: got the acceptance call today!
Don’t lose hope fellow waitlisters!
Congrats, @AspiringBirdLawyer!
Congrats to all who were accepted off of the waitlist!
Given that there was movement last week, do we expect another period of silence or are things kicking into gear with more activity likely in the next couple of weeks?
called the admissions office today, they said they would get back to everyone on the WL by end of July. The woman i spoke with indicated that they are anticipating making additional acceptance offers
@ComplexAmusedJackal: Thank you!
@ComplexAmusedJackal: Thanks for the update!
Thanks @ComplexAmusedJackal!
when will we hear about wls?
Hopefully between tomorrow and Monday
Info on Reddit and lsd shows people didn’t hear about WL->R until middle of August. Is that different this year? Are all decisions definitely being made by end of July?
Saw a couple folks on Reddit got feeler emails the last two days. I assume either they are sending them out in a trickle, or they're now just waiting to see how many people accept the offer.
Any updates from nyu wl?
Any updates from nyu wl?
wondering the same thing
173/3.9, I have quite a few pass/fail grades on my transcript (most are from COVID era + one semester from going abroad where our grades weren't transferred over). anyone think it's something I should be super worried about?
for specifics I have 5 that were mandatory p/f (start of covid), 4 that were opt-in and then the study abroad grades don't even show the courses I took, it just states "exchange program" for that sem
