As an applicant who received three dings last year, I feel your pain. Goose on the rocks with a twist of lime...a few of those and you'll be feeling alright.

Really sorry to hear. Look at the positives. You nearly made it to the last step. So you have what it takes for any good school.

But in a great app for NYU. Hopefully, things will work out.

I'm sorry about your news xlick. Your profile is so strong - I am very surprised. This process just seems so random. Best of luck to you in the rest of your applications.

I received an invitation to interview yesterday. Does anyone have any tips/advice on how to prepare? Thanks!

Here's an interesting question.


For Essay #2 - check out the comments here: http://blog.accepted.com/acceptedcom_bl ... s-and.html

I'm I the only one to disagree with the tips that she's providing?

So I didn't want to add myself to the list until I was sure everything was done - superstition I guess - but now it's done. Add me to the ED list. Good luck to all.

Hey unhedged! I know for a fact that it is helpful to be early. Columbia has rolling admissions, so it's first-come, first-served. When I went to the info session, they advised us to get our apps sooner because of this, so you did well.

Thanks for the heads up, good to know. I was on the fence the whole time about RD vs. ED, and ultimately decided that it wasn't worth it even if it is very close to my first choice. Good luck on your app!
