@GuardianDevil: If it's any consolation, about 20% of NYU holds ended up being accepted last cycle and HLS has good waitlist movement compared to most T14s

(Among holds who reported the eventual result, usual caveats about self-reported data apply)

does being AT at school's 75th LSAT vs being ABOVE it really make a diff
GullibleTurtle
16:34
or once u hit that 75th, its all fair game
last week my friend got the NYU hold --> A and im manifesting the same for myself this week I need it to an ungodly level
16:35
@legallysilly: yeah bc HLS aid is all need based. however, if you get off the waitlist you have to accept before knowing what your aid will be

Looking at 2022-2023 data, HLS had 22 people admitted off the waitlist. Given the share of the pool that logged results on LSData, that extrapolates to 80-90 waitlist admits - about 1/6 of the class
