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


Correct, you must have an interview to be admitted.

What about those waitlisters that they've accepted just shortly before class starts. I'm sure there are exceptions. Especially if you get admitted during the first week of the school year.

Count me in for a waitlist. Guess this list is going to be long.

So hopefully all you people going to Harvard, and not enrolling at Stern, can make room for me. Thanks in advance.

Hi Guys,

Any idea on the timeline by which the WLs get to know their status? I'm guessing the process starts at the time of considering Round 2 applicants and goes on till right before classes start.

Also, any thoughts on how international WLs are treated would be gretly appreciated. I am a WL candidate from India.

Thanks.

I'm not a 100% sure, but I've heard that NYU really worries about yield and can let waitlisters know any time between March and August. There are some stories about people finding out the week before classes, though, my understanding is that internationals will know sooner.

None for me. Does anyone know how this waitlist process work? Do they evaluate us on a weekly or monthly basis? Do they ding people regularly off the waitlist? Not sure. This process isn't so transparent.

I just sent them my letter today. I'm worried that I took too long, but when I first got on the waitlist I was too busy and exhausted to put something meaningful together, so maybe it was better to wait.

From the main Stern thread, it looks like they're mostly still giving out R1 acceptances, so I doubt we'll hear anything until people in R2 start to be interviewed, and R1 admits start either enrolling or withdrawing.

You're not alone, I'm sending in my letter today or tomorrow. I don't think the timing is an issue, I don't expect any wait list movement for a little while. And as you point out, they're still sending out r1 acceptances, so it's going to take some time before people with offers make decisions.

I think timing is important. If you wait too long it may appear as if a prospective student is uninterested. Waiting a few weeks should be okay though. You definitely want to communicate something of substance when you do communicate. E-mailing the admissions committee with no additional information that may strengthen your candidacy is probably only marginally beneficial.

Hello All,

It seems a few more WL came out today. For the most part, like myself, sans interview.

Definitely a little frustrating. Sorry to make the already big list even bigger.

I got added to the WL as well without an interview on Friday. Will probably send a letter tomorrow with a new recommendation.

Ya I didn't word that well. I agree that timing is important, what I meant to say that I don't think that her timing was problematic. My strategy was to send a brief email immediately emphasizing my continued interest in the program and stating that I would send a more detailed letter in three weeks, and then take the time to put something more substantial together.

I think most of us have been waitlisted without an interview and I haven't seen a NYU poster get waitlisted with an interview until now.

Congrats on getting one at least. How did your interview go? Care to conjecture why the waitlist occurred?

I think there was one other person WL'd after interview this year. There were a couple last year. Definitely the vast majority are w/o int.

I agree it's positive that you got an interview invite in the first place.
