Has anyone recently been on an interview? (end of March or early April) If so, which schools and when? Specifically, any NYU interviews? My interview is coming up in a week; should I anticipate wait-list, full-class? Any insight?

Thanks

hey yeah Im pretty sure NYU is still interviewing for spots. I just called them last week and spoke to Amy Knowles, she said theres still spots left and that theyre gonna be filling up withint the next month or so. But you never know with NYU cause they have high turnover from waitlist and everything as people get accepted to their first choice schools.

So im pretty sure youre gonna be interiviewing for a spot. I had my Boston interview last week. SO i know they still have a few spots left too. Im still hoping for my NYU interview. I just sent my apps in at the end of Feb. So I know its late...but lets see how it goes.

Good luck on the interview. Lemme know how it goes.

I had mine on March 19th. Amy asked me if I wanted to put my app. on hold until I re-submitted new DAT scores (they asked me to retake DAT). I have been studying and plan to retake them soon (within next two weeks...basically as soon as I get authorization). I am not sure how it works in my situation. I am assuming if I get the score they are looking for I will get an acceptance, if I get similar scores or just a small raise in my scores, maybe watilisted? Finally, if I get lower, I am not sure what will happen. I heard a story similar to mine where a guy in the class of 2007 scored pretty low, but received a letter to interview. Anyway, they asked him to retake DAT, he scored lower and still got in. I dont know, I have been studying like crazy and hopefully I score higher, but if I score in the same range I am going to be upset and if I get in, I will not have understood why they put me through what they did. In the end, its a bunch of question marks and I will find out when I take the test and submit the scores. Good luck on the interview. If you get the psychologist, he tries to make you anxious with some hard-nosed questioning...but just be yourself (I cant remember his name). Good luck

I knew Temple interviewed into April. A student from Temple said that interviews were over because they recieved so many applications this year. I guess s/he was mistaken.

Good luck in philly!

We were sent a letter welcoming us to Temple and informing us that the class is full and that the waitlist has been growing, so I dont know if this was just a general letter, but your interview in April is probably for the waitlist. You have awesome stats, may I ask why you applied so late?

hi-speed513:

Can you describe the interview day, and how long it took to receive your acceptance? Any advice? My interview is 4/16. Thanks.
