    omg..... what is going on with mine......
    I live in Canada but from the predecember interviewers,
    I noticed they use UPS for Canadian applicants.
    I just hope I receive it this week...
    the suspense is killing me.
    Could it be because I am waitlisted and send it with regular mail?
    hope not..............

    Thank you for your replies.

    yeah that could be it. i live in cali and i received an offer about 11 days later..

    u have to take into consideration that holidays + ups (snail mail) will take longer. no worries!

    good luck! unless u wanna be realistic, if u bombed the interview..then that could be it too... who did u interview with? and what was the interview like? informal, formal, ...

    It was UPS (the fast one, not USPS)
    The interview was so so.
    I could not give a good answer when he asked
    why he should accept me rather than others in the hall way.
    Also he mentioned i had the lowest GPA hes interviewed with
    but the highest DAT score.
    My credential was kinda extreme and in the end, he told me i did pretty well. Not sure if it was just to be polite or real.

    I called the office just incase the address I gave them was wrong, but
    it seems they are having vacation.

    I just hope it is a good news no matter how many days it takes....
    Thank you for your thoughts and congrats on the acceptance

    my sister interviewed on the 11th and got accepted a few days later-maybe the mail is just taking longer due to the holidays, you could be getting an acceptance packet in a few days

    its hard to determine without ur stats, but most interviewers kinda psych u out by pointing out ur weakensses just to hear an honest response..

    in most cases, scores play a large role whne it comes to determining whether u are or aren't a good candidate..hopefully ur DAT score really makes up for ur low gpa. i dunno wat to tell u but just wait it out...

    btw was ur interviewer Dr. Joshi?

    I am actually in the same situation I interviewed on the 11th and I have yet to get anything and I live in Pittsburgh so it shouldn't take that long to get here. I emailed Dr. Mejia and she told me that they are out of the office till the 5th and that everyone should have heard something that everyone got something mailed out. She also said that if you didn't get anything by Jan 5th to call the office. Thats what I plan on doing.

    I got waitlisted .....
    columbia and NYU both waitlisted me.
    I guess I have some serious problems at the interviews.
    I just hope I get accepted off the waitlist sometime......
    or do well at BU and get accepted there.

    but I really wanted to study in NYC............at NYU or columbia.

    I believe if you call up NYU and tell admissions director that you really want to go to NYU and it is your top choice, you will be sure to get in sooner or later.
