I had 4 missed calls last night from a new york number while I was asleep. Trying not to get my hopes up but 4 missed calls makes me think it's not spam. Didnt get a voice mail though ans the callback isn't working.

He said he calls multiple times and doesn't leave a voicemail so as to not give away the surprise. Also he'd rather talk to the accepted applicant personally than just leave a voicemail
Can I private message you the number to see if it's the same one that called you? Had 4 missed calls from an nyc number but for some reason i can't call back and this is gonna be driving me crazy all day if i don't find out lol

Edit: got it answered by someone, looks like it wasn't the same number. Only applied to one other new York school and they don't reply until next month so no sure what it was haha

Just asked an admitted friend- there are 94 people on the FB group. Accounting for those who were accepted but don’t have a Facebook account/didn’t join the group, I’m guessing they’ve accepted over 100 at this point, meaning they’ve filled their class. I forget if the dean mentioned what their expected yield is this year.
A sizable chunk of that is mstp, I would imagine there are still a good amount of md spots to be offered

Does the 94 not include any current students?
Can’t imagine it’d be more than like 5 student ambassadors? If that. Wonder why they haven’t updated their twitter to indicate when the last round of acceptances will go out.

I think the expected yield is around 60%, according to previous posts. But again, the dean did say that they have no idea how many people would actually matriculate from the original acceptances. Assuming that 60% yield is accurate, I would say that approximately 150 acceptances would go out in total

lol the other student groups I've seen actually have like a majority current students and much smalller number of accepted students. So its not impossible to have a large chunk of them being current students

*ahem* not that I'm obsessively fb stalking people (that would be weird, ha..ha....) but I bet like 10-15 are current students. Lot's of people wearing NYU white coats in their photos.



I'm not weird you're weird

The majority of the 100 people in that group aren’t going to be current students lol. Thanks for the info @stickflip723!

Can someone do a quick gender count of the admitted students in the FB group? I want to know if guys or girls have a better chance at getting admitted at this point
Good idea! Might as well split it up into a chart with race, age, gender, SES level, location, section of medicine they want to go into, height, attractiveness, personality, and writing skills while we're at it

NAH I’m joking. Y’all are crazy
Ya lol it’s nuts to want to know how many people they’ve accepted so far. No wait, it’s not.

Hi guys! Congrats to all of you who have gotten accepted and good luck to the rest of you waiting! I just wanted to clarify the difference between the two Facebook groups. One group is run by current students where accepted applicants can ask us any questions that you may have (no admissions people there to see what you're asking, so feel free to ask anything). The other group is run by the Office of Admissions—they post about upcoming in-person and digital events for all accepted students to tune into.

As always, if you guys have any questions, feel free to reach out!

Do you guys know if there are any more direct acceptances going out? Or will it be strictly wait list from now on?

Ok. So there have been 2 tweets in the last week about acceptances going out but it has been silence on here. Does anyone know of anyone accepted in the last week? I don’t think I’ve seen anything on here.

Is it safe to assume that if we haven't gotten a call by now, all decisions that go out tomorrow will be either waitlists or rejections?

It's safe to assume that at best only a small handful of acceptances are left to go out tomorrow and there are plenty of us left, so while ALL decisions may not be WL/R, the vast majority will be. The real question at this point is how many they're going to WL
