    Hello everyone!

    New York University announced that it will begin ignoring the common application “checkbox” about criminal and disciplinary history and instead focus on the more narrowly defined question on the NYU supplmental that queries if the applicant has been “convicted of or disciplined for violent incidents.” NYU believes this will better help the school keep its campus safe while also allowing second chances to worthy applicants as the school continues to pursue its goal of being “an engine for social mobility.”

    It will be interesting to see if other schools follow NYU’s lead. We believe that will be dependent on (1) how applicants and their families respond to this decision and (2) any litigation that could potentially emerge should a second-chance applicant commit an offense on campus.

    Best of luck with your applications!

    Sincerely,

    I don’t see how there’s any difference in liability if the student had a clean background.

    I can’t wait to see what type of diversity perspective these students bring. Their protests will likely make Berkeley look mainstream.
