Of course, they cannot tell you over the phone what the decision is. I was a little more sneaky. I framed the question like this, "should I accept the offer of another university?" The lady in the admissions office told me to go ahead and do that, so by adding 2 and 2 I found out. If they tell you to wait for the letter to arrive, that should mean admission.

Hey all,
I called the admissions office this morning and was told that my application is still with the committee. Guess I can stop holding my breath when opening my mailbox for the rest of the week.

When the doorman buzzed me a few minutes ago to tell me I had a package, I got all excited. Maybe this was my NYU acceptance package!

But when I saw this big bulky box, I was pretty disappointed. Just a keyboard that I ordered online for my computer. (I'm using the keyboard to type this post, very nice.)

I received an email from NYU on feb 22nd indicating my app was complete and called Admissions today to learn they still have not made a decision. Ive heard from all the other top schools.
Don't understand why NYU is taking so long.

I dont come from a highly ranked law school, ranked fourth actually. But i have pretty good grades and have high tax grades (3.75). I have taken a bunch of tax classes, did my university's tax clinic (pro bono work) and was on our Tax moot court team.

I got into all the top schools, just waiting on NYU- if I dont get into NYU, Ill be attending G-town.

Hope that helps

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I think it is about time to make it clear that NYU handles domestic and foreign applicants differently.

First, they review all the foreign then all the domestic applicant files and then they devote time for those waitlisted.

Of course there are overlaps in the system.

It would be useful for those writing to this post to identify themselves whether coming with a foreign or a domestic background!

I hope this helps.

In case anybody would feel offended by my post, I did not mean to harm anyone and apologies in advance.

"did my university's tax clinic (pro bono work)"

Darn, I forgot to mention on my app that I participated in VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance). But that's so unrelated to the type of tax law taught at NYU that I probably didn't even associate the two.

In response to foreign vs domestic, I thought it was implicit that I was a domestic applicant to the LLM in Taxation, if only on account of my application becoming complete in March, when the deadline for foreign applicants was December 31st.

Do the exact same adcom people do the foreign applications as do the domestic applications? If so, then it would be the case that they'd let the domestic applications sit in a big pile until they finished with the foreigners. But I would think that, by now, they'd be finished doing the foreign applications.

Foreign students were promised a decision by 4/1, so most likely the adcom people have moved onto the domestic students exclusively now.

And we're promised a decision by the end of June, so it could be a long wait :(

I seriously hope they do not take until the end of June to make their decisions. I dont get why other schools can respond so quickly while NYU just takes their time, maybe its because they know we will wait for them.

Well NYU has the only LLM program worth attending, so the fact that some mediocre state school in Florida whose graduates have to take low paying jobs as accountants can offer its LLM applicants a quick decision is irrelevant.

And for programs ranked even lower than the one in Florida, they basically accept anyone with a JD degree, so it's not surprising that they can offer a quick "decision."
