Interviews ended 12/12. They're sending out a total of 110 acceptances as of mid-January. As people begin to withdraw/turn down acceptances, they'll start extending additional acceptances to people on the waitlist.
Last week (week of 9/12) when I interviewed, the dean said they’d accepted 58. So there’s at least 52 acceptances left or so. 30 is way overblown
Thanks. So after the Dec 13 and 20th end of Interview Acceptances, the corrected number for January Acceptances is closer to 45-50!

So I haven't received a follow-up email saying that my application is under review post interview. I thought Dean Rivera said that we would receive an update email.


Edit: placed on post Interview hold.

Same. This could mean we’ve been reviewed and passed over right? Like not good enough for an outright acceptance?

I don't know. I mean NYU was a long shot for me anyways, so I am not surprised. Gotta keep expectations really low. At least, I know this chapter is close to being over.

Congrats! Seems like the hold email really was a sign of we like you but don’t love you.
i disagree but i have no evidence except for my gut. i think most of us w/ post ii hold are gonna get hit with an r wave in jan. they'll have a small wl cause yield will be so high

I completely agree simply cause of the low post ii acceptance rate. But unless I’m mistaken everyone who’s interviewed has either been given the A or a hold since they’ve finished interviews and we should still have around 40 A left. All we can do is hope and pray to Dean Rivera, our lord and savior.

People have gotten straight up Rs (albeit, that seems to be the minority). I'm taking a hold as MMI score = good, but complete app didn't stand out enough for the A.

Anyone think there will be some As sent out this Friday. Last year people heard back on the 27th but I thought offices are closed till New Years.

This makes perfect sense, given how high their expected yield is. Still, mid January is very likely just when holds will convert to A, R or WL. They still won't know which of their A's are actually coming until their CTE deadline kicks in, so whoever is on the WL will either become an A at some point or remain in purgatory until then, which will undoubtedly be at the end of the cycle (3 weeks before orientation according to their website).
what is their CTE deadline?

I put my deposit in a while back to secure my acceptance and noticed my portal says "matriculated." I didn't just commit, did I?? Screenshot_20191227-123625_Chrome.jpeg

It said we just had 2 weeks before our acceptance was rescinded, and that we could refund it before april 30, so I figured this was not a commitment... I'm going to send an email and call Monday
I was also confused about that, are we allowed to also have accepted admissions other places and still be considered “matriculated” at NYU

Yes. You paid the deposit and accepted the offer of admission. Until you withdraw your acceptance you are considered matriculated.
But this doesn't mean I can't hold other offers of acceptance until april 30, right? This just means I am still considering NYU?

We are allowed to hold unlimited multiple offers up until April 15. At that date, you will need to cut it down to 3; on April 30, you will either need to select one school to either "Plan to Enroll" (which means it is more than likely the place you'll go, but you may have a waitlist spot you're holding out for), or "Commit to Enroll", where you will be making your final decision and essentially forfeiting all offers and waitlist spots elsewhere. You can begin using the AAMC tool on February 19 (more info about the entire process can be found here).

All of this, however, is through the AAMC, and will only notify the schools you have there that you have made a decision, but not release the name of said school. Thus, you will still need to "Withdraw application" through the school-specific portal when you make your respective decisions. All this means is that currently you technically have made a commitment to attend NYU (and any other school you may be accepted to thus far) until you tell them otherwise (either on or before April 15 or April 30, respectively).

As long as you withdraw on the school and AAMC sides before the respective deadlines (but at the latest April 30) from any school you decide not to attend, you will receive the deposit back (assuming you had to pay one there).

This is essentially what you will get calling/emailing them, but if there is any additional information they provide, please do share!

Received an acceptance phone call from Dean Rivera. Not impressed at all! Prior to my interview NYU was my dream school. New York and NYU mean diversity to me or so I thought it did. The lack of diversity was truly disheartening, beginning with the all-white male interviewers, I did not encounter one AA on the panel, tour guides or talks. Dean Rivera projected an air of arrogance. How unprofessional are you?? The Dean of Admissions wears jeans and sneakers to speak to the applicants?? When I asked the tour guides about it, they replied "he always dresses that way". All he talked about was tuition free. If you think we will base our decision solely on finances, you are sadly mistaken. I am so disappointed. Dean Rivera and the lack of diversity really turned me off to the school. Best of luck to all!
Lol dean Rivera gonna read this

I'm sure whoever is going to be taking your spot is going to be very excited and thrilled at your disappointment! Viva la difference!!

And thanks for sharing!!! Very constructive while reporting an acceptance.

Also, yeah, I'm sure nobody not eligible for need based aid is going to take finances into account at a T10 (there is no such thing as solely when you are talking about a T10, because it is, well, a T10, and in NY to boot!). :) The mere fact that you would even think to make such a statement shows that you are not full pay, and therefore shouldn't be opining on how those who do not receive outside funding should value free tuition.

Your post is undoubtedly the best news everyone bound for the WL could have possibly received, and I'm sure they only wish around 100 other people receiving As shared your views.

Galaxy brain take: the poster actually got WL'd and is trying to prevent people from accepting their A's:eyebrow:
