Waitlisted @ NYU Langone Spring 07..... [#permalink] New post 30 Nov 2006, 16:27
What to do now? Does anyone have any idea of the chances of getting in off the wait list? I am going to write a letter letting them know I am still interested and will attend if admitted - I'm also going to write an additional essay explaining why I believe the program is a good fit for me - I didn't really elaborate on that in my application.

My quant scores aren't strong, and I'm pretty sure that's why I didn't get in. I am planning on (worst case) taking a stats class this semester @ another school and re-applying if I don't get in from the waitlist. Should I let them know? I'm worried that if I do, they'll be less likely to admit me now and take a wait and see approach for the fall......any suggestions?

First, check to see what Langone's waitlist policy is. Some schools have a strict "don't bug us" policy, while others welcome additional information (within reason). I think Langone is in the latter camp, but you'll want to confirm.

Beyond that, it sounds like you have a pretty good idea of what kept you out. If that's the case, then your communications to the admissions office shouldfocus on that. Put another way, if you think your quant skills kept you out, then it probably won't help to write an additional essay about your fit with the program. Even better than taking a class later (if you don't get in) is to sign up for a class NOW, and to let Stern know that you're taking this class. That shows your commitment to getting in and hepls address this perceived weakness.
