I just called NYU to find out the status of my application as I interviewed there in December. I know people receive emails from them ~1month after application saying if they got accepted ( I have seen these emails!) so why then, did the guy on the phone tell me that everyone finds out in February and that no one got emails! What's the deal? why was he lying to me? I know people who got these emails of acceptances saying that they will receive a letter in the mail within 5days stating that they got accepted. I felt like saying "u liar" but i had to compose myself.
