Tell us what's important to you
There was an A reported on reddit
Also, there seemed to be a really small rainbow wave today. Two R's and one A reported on LSD.
Does anyone know if NYU sends out all Rs at once
I got a DLS but can’t tell if I’m about to rejected or if it’s an A
Does NYU always post DLS if you got an A
@VoraciousWoodenPegasus: I’m not sure but I think I read on Reddit that they do send out Rs at once. Plus looks like an A wave today
Anyone else get their scholly reconsideration result today
denied reconsideration :(
9 NYU As reported on LSD today so far.
@FlynnRoadStar: same :( did u j use other scholarships to negotiate?
Anyone have an admitted students GroupMe/Discord?
anything today
hi yall
does anyone know what number calls lol
nvm they called for a missing document
Are they done for the day? Looks like 2 As 1 R
Do URM have a good chance at the waitlist? Any data on that?
does NYU accept LOCIs?
I sent one but idrk
Any thoughts on when the rest of the holds will hear back? It's been a few months since the hold itself at this point
@luckyapp: no idea but looks like quite a few hold applicants have been rejected/accepted. A lot are still waiting. I'm also a hold. maybe they're keeping applicants on hold as a back up before they waitlist us? that's my best guess
NYU doesn't seem to have done a waitlist wave so thats what im anticipating
the waiting rn is killing me
I don’t expect to hear anything from NYU or USC until May 2nd
I’m not like even her biggest fan I’m more a Miley man but I respect Taylor so much
I emailed NYU to ask when everyone will hear back by. they said the vast majority will hear back by the last day of April. Hence the "vast" majority. Wonder if they'll make decisions into May.
I'm hoping not
ty for emailing them tho
yes np. I knew they wouldn't tell me anything substantial but I just had to reach out after waiting so many months
Anyone know any info about NYU LLM decisions? I'm a 20-21 cycle 3L who is applying to LLM programs
