I interviewed there this week and Dr. Mejia told us that we will hear back by end of next week, maybe the week after depending on your location b/c the final decision will be sent as a snail mail. She says she would consider us as "pre-dec" interviewees. Hopefully good news is on the way!

I called today to decline my acceptance. They said that anyone declining must submit a written letter before they will process it. Just thinking this info might effect how quickly spots move on the waitlist.

I also interviewed at NYU this week, Dec. 6th, and was told the same thing: Everyone before Christmas break is considered as a pre-december interviewee and we will be hearing back in about a week. We were also told that if waitlisted you can express your interest in NYU to Dr. Mejia and she will try to help you out. It seemed like at this point they are interested in admitting you and they just want to make sure that you know what you're getting into and can handle it.

My interview is next week, any idea how long it would take to hear back from them? I guess its good news for them to consider it a pre-december 1 interview? For those of you who have just interviewed, have you any idea how many people have been interviewed so far, how many have been accepted/waitlisted/rejected?

SDN interview feedback is enough, I'd say.

Well, you just had your interview. You will not hear back until January because NYU is waiting for those who were accepted on the first week of December (those accepted w/ a pre-dec interview) to submit their deposits.

yeah but since we have to wait on snail mail, I think we are going to hear back by the end of this week. or even early next week depending on where you are. she said the letters don't go directly into the mailbox, but to the post office so the post-marked date isn't really the date that they send it out.

So if they are going on vacation at the end of the week, I guess people who interview this week will not have decisions until January?

I had an interview at NYU this past Thursday (Dec 9th) and Dr. Mejia said that they would get their decisions out for December interviewees before they left for vacation this weekend. I'm assuming that means that most of us will probably get our decisions by snail mail early next week. Good luck everyone!

I guess that will mean a quick turn around time for people who are interviewing this week (fingers crossed).

dctim, I see you have a few interviews, would you pick NYU over some of those other schools? How did you like NYU?

Absolutely. Even though my visit was right in the middle of finals week, there was a really good vibe surrounding all the students (D1s & D2s studying for finals & D3/D4s in the clinics). It is obvious that NYU has the resources to support both their dental school and residency programs, not to mention plenty of the one resource that money can't buy: PATIENTS!! There were patients EVERYWHERE. There are some other factors that are probably unique to me (a lot of college friends in NY & a friend at NYU Dental) and then there's the fact that the school is in Manhattan. I was also intrigued by the research program that they have, and it gave me a sense that while they may not have the best "reputation" (as many people will say), if you are worried about their reputation because of your desire to specialize in the future, they seem to have the resources, means and faculty to help you get there.

Obviously, these are all just my observations/2cents, so I'd suggest you visit and form your own opinions. Good luck!

Have you guys got any emails saying that your response has been mailed? I guess they send an email when your response is mailed, but nothing for me so far.
