What are people doing with admits to other schools? Most schools' deposits are due on 5/1 and at the rate Stern is moving the waitlist, it looks like there's no way around it but to pay the deposit to another school and lose out on the money if you admitted probably sometime in July/Aug and decide to go there.

I just want to see what people's takes are on this.

I've paid a deposit and if I end up getting into NYU, will have to decide whether it's worth it to lose that pretty significant chunk of money. With the number of people Stern waitlists I'm not getting my hopes up, but doesn't hurt to stay on the waitlist.

I think once I sign a housing lease for next year I'll be calling it quits on the waitlist. And that will almost definitely occur before July.

Hi everyone, just got WL'ted.. Was really looking forward to NYU because of my strong interest in Finance.
Mine is a very strange situation. I applied R1 back in Nov and got my interview invitation on Feb 14 - Extremely late. I interviewed on March 7th and got WL today.
Now, I am evaluating how I can improve my application, even considering retaking the GMAT!!


carlosamq - do you know why Stern got back to you so late? Wasn't the initial notification date for R1 in mid-January?

I'm asking because I'm a R2 applicant who still hasn't heard a peep from admissions since I submitted on 1/6.

International applicant. R1 and WL w/o interview. Got a mail of interview invitation yesterday but the only option is on campus. Still considering whether I shall spend a fortune and fly 12 hours to NYC for an interview.

can anyone point me to the right direction in terms of taking any supplementary course as part of improving my academic record.

gpa and gmat are not that great and i thought that either a quantitative course or any kind of course would be good to improve my academic record.
looking for courses preferably in europe, or would have to look at the US, preferably nyc.

many thanks

Hi all,
Just got my WL letter, after interviewing, so I'm joining this list :)
Although it may be a silly question, I'll ask it anyway: is it possible to also receive any $$ from the school if admitted from the WL? Has it ever happened? I assume not, but I'm just trying to figure out if it's worth to wait.
I am now trying to figure out what to send as an update to improve my profile...
Thanks and good luck to everyone!

hmm... any updates from the people WL without interview?

I was waitlisted without interview from R1.

Also, I sent in supplemental material, but I don't see it on the Application Status Check webpage. Anyone else send in supplemental material and see any updates or hear anything?

I've sent two supplemental materials and both have been noted in my app. One was an email and one was a recommendation. Interestingly, I went to do the campus tour yesterday. This is not automatically recorded.

WL, after the interview (March 30th). Does anyone know what percentage of WL people with interviews get offers? Approximately? Just trying to ballpark my chances before shifting gears.

For what it's worth, I was w/led R2 and have heard nothing. I didn't send in additional material.

Additional material...what are the better/smarter ways to improve your package in WL case? I assume 'trying to hard' can also be a turn off.
