Still UR2 12/12, no DLS, grasp on reality starting to slip away....
Basically same, UR2 12/15. I'm a competitive applicant, (IMO), but not YP level. Just wish they'd give me my decision already so I can close the book on my cycle.

Applied in September, still no DLS. Stats are GPA=75, LSAT=median. I just...... don’t get it?

FWIW, last year NYU sent out two massive waitlist batches on 4/26 and 4/27.

If they're just planning on waitlisting me then I don't really understand why they haven't done it yet when they're waitlisting people who went UR2 months after me... It's just weird.

So does anyone know if this was a rejection wave, acceptance wave, or WL wave?

I would love a blog post or something once this cycle is over where NYU adcomms explain just what was going on with their decisions this cycle. Why spend THIS LONG to WL so many Sep/Oct/Nov applicants? Why wait for months after the Hold Tight Emails to render a decision? Why send the HTE at all?

The intention of the HTE seems pretty clear: they knew that they have a bunch of apps (about 7,500 according to the WL email they just sent), they knew that it was going to take them a long time to review every app, they didn't want applicants to anguish over the fact that they hadn't heard back, and they didn't want applicants to think less of them because it took a long time to give them an answer.

Obviously their intention failed anyways.

If that was their goal, I don't think the HTE helped to achieve their goal at all. It made things worse, added to the confusion. I also believe they could have WL'ed people faster. With their huge influx in apps, they could have been more confident about WLing apps they weren't 100% on with the knowledge that it wouldn't hurt their medians because the pool they are choosing from is so large.

does anyone know if there has typically been a rejection wave this close to the decision deadline in prior years? starting to worry that the silence is a sign of bad news to come because I had resigned myself to a WL

Missed the WL Wave.

Are they really gonna ding me after making me wait since December? That's so pointless.

Anyone know how many people NYU typically takes off the waitlist? Or where I can find that info?

In fairness, there email seemed to be pretty transparent and sincere. It said that they hadn't yet made a decision and they were still looking at your app. As HTE recipients seem to span accepted, rejected and WL, that seems to have been pretty honest. It was our rampant frothing speculation (I'm talking about myself here) that led to the confusion.

the reality is that schools can do whatever they want; I just got dinged by two schools today that I had been pending at since early october, so none of us actually knows what is going to happen
