I got an email recently about a background check for admitted applicants. anyone else admitted to NYU get it? I'm curious how long before we need to finish it, as there's quite a bit of info to fill out...
What was the subject line of this email? I don't remember if I've done this yet or not.I got an email recently about a background check for admitted applicants. anyone else admitted to NYU get it? I'm curious how long before we need to finish it, as there's quite a bit of info to fill out...
I found this older post that may (big question mark, lol) help answer: Internal ranking?Does NYU do internal rankings? I have heard they do but MSAR says they do not rank students.
My guess is that most people considering other schools over NYU are still waiting to hear from other T20 programs. Those expecting full or near most need-based financial aid would not feel the same stickyness of an NYU tuition free offer, and then there will be some trading in free tuition for higher perceived prestige—- all of whom are likely waiting to receive more info from other schools.Are any accepted people considering other schools over NYU? If so, can you PM me - would like to hear your thoughts.
Strange that MD revisit is so much later than MSTP. I was hoping they might overlap so I might get to meet the whole classOne of the current students I talked to also said our second look would be the 23-25th. Looking forward to meeting everyone
I believe so. I sent a LOI(interest)/Update when first placed on the waitlist. I believe he only meant not to send it before you were done with interviews and other schools' decisions.I know Dean Rivera said they didn't want LOIs during interview day, but are they receptive to them if you're on the WL?
I know me and the other poster are both MD/PhD applicants, so cost wasn't really a consideration for me since the programs I am looking at are fully-funded!Very curious and would like to ask those who indicated they are withdrawing from their Acceptance, what is the reason?
1. Did you just like another program better and are willing to pay significantly more?
2. Did you just like another program better and cost was about the same or close enough due to Need Based Financial Aide?
3. Did you just like another program better and cost was about the same or close enough due to need Merit scholarship?
4. Other (please tell)
Best of luck.
I think certain scholarships were awarded upon admission and sent along with the acceptance email. So, some people were already informed of what their package will contain. But I think perhaps the email from this morning pertains to the comprehensive financial aid packages for everyone..? Maybe, idk just a guess!I read some people earlier on this thread saying that they received their financial packages in January or February. I have not yet received one, but are we talking about different things?
I received an email that looked like it was going to the whole admitted class which said they will send packages next week. Did the people in January and February get their packages before this group of students, or are they different things?
Bump on this! I'm on the waitlist for the MSTP and would love to know any info about this.Hey! I am currently on the waitlist for NYU SOM and recently learned that NYU takes about 1/5th of the waitlisted students off of the waitlist (source: MSAR, March 2020).
Are there any current students/admissions persons who could potentially shed some light on what the waitlist process looks like? I know that 1/5 is better odds than many places but it also is still not a crazy high acceptance rate.
To be more specific: is there any way for me to know my 'position' on the waitlist? If I am high up on the list, I would most certainly want to maintain my place. If I am, however, in the bottom fifth of 'waitlistees', I would want to have that knowledge so I can move on with my life. I am fortunate to be in a school that I love (albeit will likely be >2x the cost of NYU and not in highly-urban setting) so it would be great to end the emotionally exhausting process of medical school admissions and start looking forward to my current 'intend to enroll' institution.
Feel free to message me or reply if you have any info!
Unfortunately, the admissions office does not provide waitlist status updates, and movement will not begin until after the April 30th deadline. However, I can reassure you that there are many people in my class who were accepted off the waitlist!
