I was an ED and I found out through the round of acceptances that came out about two weeks ago, but because of some mail issues, I didn't actually have it in my hands until yesterday.  I had to see it to believe it.  :)   I was a 169 and 3.7.  Don't let anyone tell you soft factors don't matter.   ;)

I'm excited!  I love New York and have always wanted to live there.  I've been in DC for a few years because that's where my work (government) is, but I'm ready for the change, and maybe I'll be back here after school.

Also, laurenlaw, I saw that you live off in Jersey, but can you offer some NYC housing advice?  I'm certain I want to be downtown, and I'm going to be abroad right up until a week before orientation... and while I have a friend that could help look for a non-NYU apartment, it seems that the NYU law housing is a decent deal -- it looks to be market-competitive in price and certainly low hassle.  How have your friends found it?  Any preferences between D'Agostino and Mercer?

Congrats!  It does feel great; I was completely surprised.  I had applied ED expecting to be rolled into the regular decision pool and so I was bracing myself to be playing the waitlist game until late in the cycle.  I'm happy I don't have to go through all that.  Now if I could just figure out how I'm gonna pay for this...  Did you apply for any of the scholarships?  I did Root-Tilden-Kern.

Sorry, just noticed this question.  Go for D'Ag if you have a choice.  I think that's where the majority of the 1Ls live, so you'll be among friends.  Also, outside of Mercer they've been doing construction work.  I'm not sure how long this will last, but I know that people who are living there weren't too happy with it being their wakeup call during finals.
My friends really enjoy on campus housing, and every time I talk to them they try to convert me.  If you have the money, it's probably worth the convenience.  I hate my commute every day I take it.  But it is more expensive, and the space is small.  Picture undergrad dorms + small kitchen that will go unused + bathroom shared with one other person.  Also, it's not as friendly as I would have thought.  A lot of the students don't know who their next door neighbor is.  But that can also translate to you having a lot of privacy, and I haven't heard anyone with any noise complaints either.  So all in all, it's a great deal if you want to take it. 
If you're interested in off campus housing, then you should sign up for the list called "coases."  It's an NYU Law-wide email list with tons of apartments and roommates available.  I believe that after you send in your deposit you will get an email about it.  It's on the NYU Home website.
