It worked last year (but in reverse)

I'd have to change my profile colors before doing it though...

Just got the status update email from NYU. I checked the status website and saw the update @ 2:20, and the email came in @ 3:03. Guess the system is running slowly under the massive weight of all these WLs.

:lol: Imagine someone call them up and say, "Hey, I got into Stanford and Harvard, but NYU is my first choice."

NYU's waitlist instructions are not as explicit as, say, Yale's about how frequently to send in material. I'm guessing that sending in an update once a month should be about right? Any thoughts on this?

Good question. I too would like to know this. Once a month seems too frequent? If a monthly updates aren't too frequent, then wouldn't we have to constantly nitpick and do new things for the sake of doing new things?

Is it OK to send in an initial email stating your continued interest in Stern and your intention to stay on the waitlist? From their instructions it seems like you can only contact them with NEW information:

"New information should only be submitted when it provides a different or updated perspective to the Admissions Committee. "

My plan is to send them an email adressing what you mention and including the name of an extra recommender that will be sending them a letter (thus covering the "new information" part). My choice of recommenders for Stern was made under time pressure, I really wanted to get it in for R1, so now I'll add a letter from the recommender who did my other R2 apps.

One of the waitlist strategies that are often mentioned is telling the school that it is one's top choice. I'm not sure what to do about that. I don't have a ranked list among the schools I'm applying to. Early in the process I did, but after starting to visit schools that started to change, so I ended up simply eliminating schools that I wouldn't see myself at, and figuring that it was a waste to time to decide on the others before knowing whether I'd get in. I know I would be happy at any of the schools I'm applying to. All have advantages and drawbacks.

Am I overthinking this?

No.
I think you are perfectly correct saying that
Quote:

. If you think so than you may say to any school that thay are you first choice.
Don't think like "ohh if all schools will accept me what would I choose?" it does not make sense. Think so only when you are really accepted to 2- or 3 schools. I used to think as I mentioned above, but it is not wise becuase one may think so and then have 4 dings. and the dreams are destroyed.

Good luck!

How often should we communicate are continued interest in NYU? Is an e-mail every hour too much? :P

I've heard about every 4 weeks. If something significant comes up but then you should probably update right away.

Yes - you have to get an interview to be admitted.
