Really not sure. Needless to say, I wasn't expecting a WL after the interview. The interview itself had gone very well, or at least that's what I had thought. In hind sight, one thing that could have hurt me was my answer to the questions about what kind of jobs I will look for post-MBA. I told them that I wanted to stay in consulting but would like to explore my options during my first summer and that brand name is not as big a concern for me as the kind of opportunities I get. Not sure if those were the "correct" answers.

Looks like they give quite an emphasis on retaking the GMAT as a WLer. Guess it's time to hit the books again!

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 just read my waitlist letter again today, and noticed that it says they'll be reviewing our status starting in the Spring. If the definition is the one on the calendar, that means the earliest we could hear anything is more than a month away... for some reason I expected we'd be continuously evaluated together with the R2 applicants. Time to go find last year's thread and check when movement starts to happen.

cmv, that would be a great help! I believe few people had gotten off the waitlist last year, but I'm not sure about their timelines.

Here's a ray of hope:

Apply: 11/14/09 (round 1)
Wait-list w/o interview: 1/6/10
Interview Invitation: 2/25/10
Interview (summer start): 3/25/10
Admitted: 4/2/10

it seems they picked off a few (very few) people to interview for Summer Start in late Feb/early March. Not sure how they pick people for Summer Start.

Nice find! Interesting that that person was interviewed for summer start before being admitted.

My WL letter says the same as yours, but I'm almost positive I've read an interview with the admissions director which said they review the WL on a weekly basis. I'll try to find it when I'm home.

Interesting considering that Columbia reviews applications on a weekly basis also for deferred/waitlisted candidates. Looking forward to reading that interview. Perhaps the process is a weekly basis from spring onwards?

My mistake, I was thinking of an interview I read with Cornell: http://www.accepted.com/chat/Transcript ... rnell.aspx

Spring? Ugh.

Got waitlisted today. Had applied R1 on 11/15. I was waiting for my rejection letter to come in considering it had been so long.

Thanks, and good luck at Ross!

To feed the speculation, I submitted an update letter 2 weeks ago and it hasn't been reflected in my status page, so it doesn't appear that WLers are getting a lot of attention right now.

Thanks and good luck at Ross as well! I just interviewed on campus at Ross and the people there were great. Ross has the best business school building that I have ever seen.

And I wonder when spring begins for nyu. Do they rely on groundhogs?

I don't know if they are really busy but I submitted an update letter a month ago and it showed up on my status page after 3 business days. I would wait a few more days and if it still doesn't show up, I would send them an email following up.

Where on the status page do your updates show up? I sent them an essay a couple of days ago and a short email a week before that. But nothing shows up on my status page.

I sent them a letter a couple of weeks ago, and recently I had a recommendation letter sent as well, but there is also nothing on my status page. I guess I'll call them later in the week.

How do you got about sending in a new recommendation? Do you send it in through email or on your initial application?

Through the same email that they give you for sending updates.

Where do you get a blank recommendation form from or do you just email the person the 4 questions that NYU asks them to complete?

I emailed the person a copy of the form, which you can find at: http://w4.stern.nyu.edu/emplibrary/Reco ... 20Form.pdf, but I don't know how strictly it needs to adhere to those questions, given that this is an extra recommendation.

I actually didn't have the extra recommender use the form - rather had it emphasize new angles and activities that I thought could bolster my overall application. Since this is an extra rec, might as well use it to your advantage as much as possible.

Has anyone asked another recommender to send in a recommendation letter? If so, does it show up on your application status page?

I sent in an additional essay a month ago and the recommender I asked sent in his last week. The receipt information of the additional essay showed up after 3 business days on my status page. However, regarding my recommender's recommendation letter, it's been over 1 week since he sent in the letter and it's still missing on my status page. Is anyone else in the same boat?
