I didn't hear a thing from NYU until my acceptance arrived. (no complete notice.) if it's been over 8 weeks and you haven't gotten a complete notice, you could try calling them, just to make sure all is okay.

Friday, January 20 2006 at 07:00 PM

Hey thanx for the congrats. By the way i tried calling NYU the other day and the lady on the phone only gave me attitude, not worth the time. BTW i figured out who you are althought i dont think you know me.

Saturday, July 30 2005 at 08:00 PM

Columbia - no doubt NYU - yes Harvard - no...just because people shouldn't get into all their schools. It's just not right. Good luck.

NYU complete date
Wednesday, September 28 2005 at 08:00 PM

I was a bit of a special case at NYU, I applied EA and then they lost my appication which is why my complete date is so late. However, they still considered me for EA which is prolly why I have a decision and you don't. I have called them before though, and they were always very helpful.

Saturday, September 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

only one? If I was a rich girl, lalalalala, hehe, I would have applied to many more. It's an addiction I have stopped feeding now! Congrats on some great acceptances and Good Luck with the big H.

Wednesday, November 02 2005 at 07:00 PM

I'm pretty anxious to see how it all pans out. NY doesn't really interest me, no. Living costs & weather, etc., are big turn-offs. I think both Columbia and NYU also are larger schools than I'd prefer. Although they definitely have a lot to offer, for me their strengths don't outweigh location/size. Best of luck with your last few decisions!

Tuesday, April 12 2005 at 08:00 PM

Yup, my acceptance came in a rather standard, large-ish manilla envelope. Hopefully you'll be hearing some good news from them soon.

Saturday, September 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

I really appreciate the kind words. It really does put a smile on my face. I am too embarrssed to tell my family about UF as that is the school everyone assumed I would go to. Sigh.

Sunday, November 13 2005 at 07:00 PM

i did take the lsat twice, but my first test had "unusual circumstances" - ie: there was a blackout for a couple hours during the test, so while i didn't cancel my score, i asked schools to not consider it. and good luck on nyu/columbia :) when did you hear from penn?

Saturday, September 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

know. I am just ready for this cycle to be over.

LSAT Peeps Question:
Tuesday, February 14 2006 at 07:00 PM

I will definitely be withdrawing from Fordham and Georgetown soon. Probably sometime next month. Hope it helps you

Tuesday, July 13 2004 at 08:00 PM

Hey- The reason you haven't heard from NYU is because frum, especially CUNY, people tend to hear late (from what I've heard). Stick with it!

NYU - Columbia
Wednesday, December 14 2005 at 07:00 PM

In regards to your questions posted to my page... I heard from NYU in mid Decemeber. I sent Columbia and Harvard, letters expressing my continued interest, along with an updated resume.

Add'l Info
Friday, October 07 2005 at 08:00 PM

I sent an updated transcript and a letter of interest. Good Luck!

NYU notification
Wednesday, January 25 2006 at 07:00 PM

I don't remember the exact dates, but I went complete in early October, before the EA deadline and heard in mid-December with the first wave of admits. Good luck!

Monday, November 14 2005 at 07:00 PM

about harvard! you're still in the game.

Sunday, November 27 2005 at 07:00 PM

Hey, thanks for the message! No idea what happened with Harvard. I was preparing a letter and additional recommendation for them and then just got in out of the blue before I could send them. I did have a phone call with Toby Stock *before* I got deferred, but I'm not really sure why that would help. However, I have a friend who recently got deferred and then overnighted them a a letter saying that Harvard was his first choice. He got an email the next day from T. Stock, and then got a call a few days later. He hasn't gotten a decision yet, but, at least according to this site, almost everyone who has gotten a call has gotten in. I know this isn't all that enlightening, but I hope it helps a little bit. Good luck!

Harvard Call
Friday, October 07 2005 at 08:00 PM

The call lasted 15 minutes and was very pleasant. He asked about my senior thesis, extra curricular activities, and what I ultimately want to do with my law degree.... simple stuff. I asked him a few things about HLS and that was it.

Wednesday, February 08 2006 at 07:00 PM

Right back at ya.

Saturday, September 17 2005 at 08:00 PM

I will try, you know what is funny. I had a dream saying I got a rejection this morning and voila I got an acceptance. It's really weird, but kinda cool. I predict you will get ino Columbia and NYU and I will pray you get into Harvard!!! ;0)

Tuesday, February 14 2006 at 07:00 PM

Yeah, PBK is prestigious, but I'm not sure it actually makes a big difference as far as these applications go. Something to include on the resume for sure, though. Your impressive LSAT and GPA should be plenty sufficient, though. Good Luck!

Thursday, December 01 2005 at 07:00 PM

i did send my most recent grades in to H and Y, along with a letter from a professor informing them that I will be receiving two awards at graduation. Thats about all I can do...

why i got dinged
Sunday, October 23 2005 at 08:00 PM

hey! i'm pretty sure NYU dinged me because 1)it's my alma mater and they seem to be a little tougher on us and then 2)it's really evident in my app that i'm going to pursue IP law, so i think that even if i did get in they know i wouldn't go since IP isn't really one of their strengths... but i applied because obviously i love it in NY and want to stay. oh well! i've got my fingers crossed for you. take it as a good sign you still haven't heard since it only took them a month to reject me. good luck!!

Friday, October 21 2005 at 08:00 PM

And good luck with Harvard and NYU!

Sunday, February 19 2006 at 07:00 PM

I was put in the reserve category and they said that they would not make another round of decisions until June.

Thursday, December 22 2005 at 07:00 PM

mazel tov on penn and good luck with hcn mp

Thursday, December 22 2005 at 07:00 PM

thanks for your post on my lsn profile - guess - who i am - if not - next time i see you i will out myself, deal??

All done over on my profile
Sunday, October 09 2005 at 08:00 PM

Got my rejection from NYU today (ouch! they never heard of a waitlist?!). I'm done waiting around, so I'm withdrawing from CLS... which means I am now officially Penn Law class of 2009. Yay!

Thursday, September 08 2005 at 08:00 PM

You should be a lock! But I would be nervous if I were you too, given their recent rejects.. HOWEVER you were not among the first group of rejects like I was (ironically, AFTER I withdrew! lol), so you might be golden. Besides nothing wrong with ending up at Penn!! Best of luck.

re: what's the catch?
Thursday, October 20 2005 at 08:00 PM

Who really knows, but it might be my really young age.

Friday, January 20 2006 at 07:00 PM

Got my big envelope of disappointment from NYU today too. guess they dont like "us" this year. anyways good luck with the waiting or penn!

its getting pretty late
Thursday, December 01 2005 at 07:00 PM

in the game and it seems you and I still havent heard definitevely from deffereds..i sent in little letters saying I was getting two awards at graduation and thats about it. harvard and columbia never contacted me after deferrals and yale emailed saying if you havent heard from us two days before your other schools deadlines, let us know. sounds promising...not.

Thursday, March 23 2006 at 07:00 PM

The Dean of Admissions from Columbia called me. No additional things sent in, just he card. Good luck.

Friday, October 21 2005 at 08:00 PM

I was similarly called by Dean Iwerebon. This was on or about May 16th. Best of luck!

i know you
Saturday, December 10 2005 at 07:00 PM

i know this is very bizarre and stalker-like- but i think you got married on Sunday, and I know who you are. how creepy is that? im goin to penn so send me an email if this isnt too strange.

keep hopes up
Thursday, April 27 2006 at 08:00 PM

i think you should get into nyu

Saturday, December 31 2005 at 07:00 PM

LSATs aren't everything, I guess. Congrats on your acceptances!

penn and columbia
Sunday, February 05 2006 at 07:00 PM

im not sure why i decided no nyu...i started the whole application process thinking that nyu was the school i would most likely attend (at least of the schools i thought might admit me)...then i ended up having a lot more options, and money got thrown into the equation...after visiting, when all was said and done, penn seemed to be the school that would be best for me... oh yeah, as far as that columbia w/l goes...i really think that you should be the one considering w/d-ing instead of me...we have what? less than 10 days til the final decision? be a team player...

Thursday, May 18 2006 at 08:00 PM

on UPenn, awsome school.

ultimate decision
Sunday, February 05 2006 at 07:00 PM

speaking of ultimate decisions...apparently columbia has made theirs...got my ding the day after i wrote that last one to you...not coincidentally, put my deposit down on an apt in philly two days later...will i be seeing you at penn?
