One invite thus far?

This year is going to be brutal. I can't wait to see the final app volume for some of these schools.

for realz...this season is crazy. Based previous years, nyu should be fairly reasonable to get in, but not this year. This year there's like no backup schools, not even sure targets.

This is making me nervous. Went under review early December and still no news..My status in the online application still shows "Submitted". Is there any need for concern?

Me too. My status still shows as 'currently being processed and presented to the Admissions Committee for review' and has been such since Nov 29. Admissions411 shows 9 interview invites already. Am fearing the worst...

I wrote an essay as well. I guess I could have been more creative, but I had some important points that I wanted to get across and I couldn't think of a better way to do it.

I think doing a 4 slide PPT will make it obvious you applied to GSB...schools know each others questions.

Yeah a PPT will say that you have just reused the Chicago PPT .. even if the number of slides is not 4.

Guys...that might be true...but they KNOW most of their applicants are applying to Chicago, Wharton, Columbia, and others ANYWAY.

Knowing that applicants are applying other schools too is different from knowing that an applicant just copied the other school's essays/PPT for your question(s).

Yes, but, its just like copying other essays, which ppl do all the time. Bascially they read it but they're not like private investigators, and be like HMMMM i suspect this has been copied, there are these clues, and there are those clues, etc etc, mUAHHAHAHA gotcha.... becuase if they do that, they'd find most kids, what 90% maybe? copy stuff from other apps, and they'd just be needlessly paranoid all day.

I think they just take the material for face value, then move on.

Just my 2 cents.

Well its not like its gonna be a straight copy, it will be pretty well tailored to NYU.Perhaps I will drop one slide and make it a 3 page ppt - just to distinguish myself ...
