Applications to the MSL program are not reviewed until all required materials and the application fee have been received. Applicants who submit all required materials by the appropriate application deadline will receive decisions as they are made and no later than about 2 weeks before the start of each semester. Note that, while applications are reviewed in the order in which they are completed, decisions are not necessarily made in the order in which applications are first reviewed.
In an effort to communicate in a timely fashion with applicants, all decisions will be released electronically. Applicants may expect an email notification when their decisions have been released. An official offer of admission to any degree or certificate program of the Graduate Division of NYU School of Law is a mailed letter sent to the address indicated on the application. The mailing address on the application must be listed as current for the entire application cycle, September 2016 - August 2017. Decisions other than admission will only be released electronically and will not be mailed.
Accepting an Offer of Admission
Upon admission, applicants should be prepared to respond promptly to correspondence from the Law School in order to ensure that all preparations, including reserving a seat and registering for classes, are completed prior to the start of the semester.
Instructions for accepting an offer of admission will be included with the mailed admission materials. No tuition deposit is required to reserve a seat in the incoming part-time class.
