    Waitlist for NYU moves starting April.
    No point in making this thread this early.
    They are still interviewing tons of applicants.

    Great to know!!! oh that's exciting....did Dr. Mejia seem optimistic about getting in? When did you call her/how did you get in touch? Did she just pick up? Thanks so much healthcare! I hope we both get in!!

    did you see what the other person posted....it was information pertaining to wait listed people (and it had to do with a time period other than the one you said) clearly your not the all knowing person....so make like a tree and leaf your useless comments in some other thread

    How about you use your time using the search button and find out when waitlisted applicants were accepted from previous cycles like many do instead of making "useless" threads. They just waitlisted you and it's only January. They will not accept you anytime soon. Think about it.

    I used to be on NYU's waitlist. As harsh as Donuteater is, he's absolutely right. They don't move their waitlist until way late. With that said, with their huge class size and large tuition, their waitlist MOVES a lot.

    Just be proactive. However, there's a fine line between proactive and annoying. So watch out for that.

    Not getting off NYU's waitlist is kind of a blessing in disguise for me. I was able to get into other schools this time around and I think I would have been miserable at NYU.

    How does NYU make their final decision on the applicants?
    Do your stat gets you the interview and the interview gets you in OR do they use a formula like UNLV and rank students based on GPA+ DAT+Interview score ?

    My interviewer specifically told me that each interviewer gives his/her interviewee a "yes" or "no" as to whether the committee should further consider the candidate, but that the committee makes the final acceptance decision I assume based on stats/undergrad institution/etc.

    Interesting. So does that mean people on the waitlist got a "no"? Because it seems that there havent been many rejections sent out.

    i don't think anyone got a rejection after the interview. all those who did not get accepted at that point are on the waitlist, and if spots open for those who were sort of considered as a "yes", I think those get the opened spots.

    You called them and said, "I looked it up and this is the time where you take people off the waitlist."?

    I really hope you didn't tell them your name.

    Don't worry. Like many have reiterated, the waitlist moves relatively fast. You'll most likely be admitted in. Just don't bite the hand that feeds you. =)

    When I called back in Feb, they said around this time we should be hearing something. But given that people are still interviewing it's looking like April sometime. :/

    I was waitlisted on 12/21. received my acceptance today! (via mail, UPS) I think the waitlist does move after the second deposit, but I asked dr.mejia if i could get my final result (whether it be acceptance or rejection) before my second deposit due date at another dental school. I think it usually comes as a regular snail mail (I live in the US), but to expedite the process of getting the deposit in by April 1st, it came as an urgent UPS mail.

    If any of you out there REALLY want to go to NYU, but want an answer before you put a second deposit down for another school, do let her know. SHE DOES HER BEST TO ACCOMMODATE EVERYTHING FOR THE APPLICANTS!! and of course, they require you to show the official letter of the acceptance from another institution. good luck!! :)

    She is wonderful person and does her best for students. I made the similar phone call to two other schools that I was waiting for answers and they simply said, oh, well, tough luck, pay up pal.

    It is nice to see some schools actually understand that paying $3500 for students after paying thousands for interviews and ... is alot of money in April to waste.

    she actually called me last thursday asking for the reason why I wanted to come to nyu and whether I still wanted to come. before that, I just sent her emails. what I did was that I directly replied to her email address (when she requested to send in the official acceptance letter) and she told me that actually takes longer for her to see it (b/c emails do get piled up). sending an email to the admissions office, NOT HER, will expedite everything b/c SOMEONE in the office will see it and update your file and let her know.

    Called Dr. Mejia the other day.. Expect movement in about a week (allow time for deposits to process). people on the waitlist are not ranked but reevaluated so everyone gets fair shot. good luck!

    Pretty sure you could have made the decision without that acceptance letter. It's not like you got the acceptance letter and magically decided to ask your friends about the school. It wasn't the acceptance letter that made you realize that you didn't like big classes where people didn't show up.

    But what the hey, it's your life.
