There's still a whole lot of Waiting List movement expected to happen, AND if they bench law gets passed anytime soon, they will be even more application withdrawals. So don't give up just yet. You can tell from the IDP Acceptance List, there are multiple acceptances who haven't made up their minds yet.

To which schools did you guys apply? Did all of you applied late?

Good Luck.

You must be on some of the waitlists, are n't you. you have very decent scores.

The whole waitlist system is very time taking and you would never know what are the chances. We just have to keep our hopes high thats it.

Can you tell us your waitlist status.

NYU has well over a 100 IDP spots AND they are the MOST expensive program ('cause of the 3 year thing). So even if they get full, I'm sure they'll have a wayyyyyy lot of waiting list movement. Plus, living the Manhanttan lifestyle while you're still a student, isn't exactly the best financial choice (assuming you actually HAVE a choice). So.... don't get discouraged.

congratulations,

Dont worry they have lot of seats, and it is not at all late for the interveiw.
Instead I came to know that some got into NYU at the end of july just a week before the school starts.

so keep your fingers crossed and go confiently for the interveiw.

Hi friends,
all of you who are waiting for acceptances don't lose heart.I am one of you.Just finished my interviews yesterday and waiting of reply.
All those waiting to hear from NYU take a deep breath and keep waiting ,most of the people I know or met at the interviews had got through NYU but would preferably select another school so there would lots of waiting list people cleared..
Take care and all the best:)

I am in the same boat .....I can undarstand our situation.
I feel more frustrating when u send application to schools and they don't even bother to call u for interview.
Now I have a feeling like I have lost this year.
Part 1 86
part2 88
toefl-243
gpa 2.98
should I write my part1 again?
any opinion on this?

I would suggest that retake TOEFL.. u have good part 2 score and an excellent GPA.. most schools require above 250 in TOEFL. What schools did u apply to this year?

Hi mili,
I heard from someone thats marquette is not such a good school(not confirmed) and since its of three year duration and space based I think NYU or boston is a better option.
Just an advice..
take care

hi,

i too am waiting to hear from schools. i do not have hopes left on this year admissionos, so have started preparing for part 2. i interviewed at BUand Upenn in january. i got a rject from Nyu. have not heard from Marquette as yet. my stats are: part 1-88, toefl: 287, GPA-2.53. I think my GPA is going to give me a tought time getting into school here.

hi ganesha,
i got a reject letter from NYU without a interview call. i think it is because of my low GPA. do not worry. just give your best shot at the interview and all the best.

Hi sanju,
Are you sure your application at NYU was complete and gpa was the reason they did not call you for interview?
Did you call them and ask them?
Take care and don't lose hope you still have to hear from UPenn and BU

that's true pinktooth. even i received rejection letter from NYU and when i called them and asked about it they told me that it was because of my gpa. my gpa is same as sanju. after hearing that i am really scared,i don't know whether i'll be able to get admission at any college in U.S with such low gpa.:confused: :confused: :confused:

ram, there's nothing you can do to improve your GPA. But you can always improve your other stats and the rest of your application.

I am not sure how does it help but as far as I know you can improve your gpa by attending community college.
I dont think anyone goes for it.

ram dont take tension many schools dont consider gpa as a sole purpose of reveiwing application.

Dear Friends,
I finally got a call from NYU.By the time i called in to schedule my interview all the slots were filled for 25th of March so i asked them to block it for the 15th of April.I hope i get through.I called BU and what they told me was that the seats for this year have been taken and that i could try for next yr.Anyways, hoping for the best.
Mili, I personally feel u should call up NYU again and find out the status of ur application.Ketu, Honest Dentist, Ram and Anjoliey don't lose heart.The best will surely come your way.

Wow Pallavi!
Fantastic work.you are too good.
keep up the good work and hope we get to see many more wonderful pieces of art in the future.You surely must think about a career as an artist too.Art , be it in the form of painting, dancing, singing, playing music or any other brings out the inner beauty in a person and gives them that special glow.
Feel gifted and blessed for the same.
Good going and God bless!!!
wish you the very best for the future.
