3L here, putting off doing work. If anyone has any questions about life here, let me know. Not sure how much I'll remember about the admissions process, as it was a while ago, but I can attempt to answer those as well.

What is the word on ED- Does it substantially increase one's chances?

Seconded. This is the #1 reason I'm applying to NYU. Might write a Why X in memoir style about my first experience at artichoke pizza.

What is life like at NYU? Would you recommend NYU Law to others?

Not really sure if NYU is a top choice for me yet. Will definitely depend on $$$.

What is NYU's fee waiver policy? Have people successfully solicited waivers from them?

Did they give a certain date or just leave it up to you to decide when it's been later enough?

IIRC I think they said mid-September after apps are out.

according to someone who attended NYU orientation:

"Didn't remember to write down the complete stats, but NYU was 171/169/16?(think it was 166), 3.8 median GPA and 432 class size. Essentially like no change from last year."

let's goooooo

Checking in!

Got WLed last cycle with a really late app. Hoping an early submission along with a Why NYU essay will be able to tip the tide in my favor this year.

Good luck everyone!
