I am having some trouble filling out the NYU application. I cannot fit all the courses on their list. What should I do? Also, when I print the application, the shaded area also prints. Is there a way to get rid of the grey?

jot

you can include extra course information pages along iwth your app - or anything else for that matter. as for the gray i didn't have the problem, don't know what to do -- anyone else?

For course information, I just added a few more rows to the table. I figured that would be easier for them to read then to attach additional pages.

Mine was unprotected. Couldn't you also expand the cells? If not I could send you a blank version of my application. (Just PM Me)

Haha, maybe they protected it after they saw mine? But I haven't submitted mine yet!

weird...

oh...maybe we're confused.

i could press enter at the end and expand one cell, but it didn't make a new cell with the lines around it. is that what you're talking about?

Sorry if I sound like I'm lost, but I thought Mt. Sinai was NYU. Or is NYU separate and not AMCAS? In other words, what r u all talking about?

Just wanted to clear things up...

hey, did anybody include additional information for the admissions committee? what sort of stuff did you send in? they say to "feel free" but i don't know if they're as liberal as columbia on that subject.

Yep, the acknowledgement card is just a little postcard that you address to yourself that they send to you when they receive your app. I requested a paper copy of the app, even though I submitted a copy that I printed out from my computer. The postcard was in the materials they mailed me. They also mail you a spiffy color brochure about NYU. That info's probably on the website too, though it was nice to see as a hard copy. I'm sure you could just make up your own postcard.

Hi Again,

Sorry for the late post, I have been on a plane for the last 6 hours!

My copy of the NYU application is unprotected and I was able to enter new rows. It was originally protected, but I had to unprotect it because the document kept changing my information! I would type my name in only to find out that it was spelled completely wrong.

For extra course work I just downloaded another copy of the courtse work page (2 extra copies in my case) and filled it in. I didn't want to bother with unprotecting.

I downloaded the MS word version (i think it offers that option on the website) which you can type into. - this is unprotected and you can add more rows into the coursework section. I'm not sure if this all depends on what version on MS word you have. Mine is pretty recent (like the ME edition) but not supernew or anything.
As for the Statistical form, this is a standard PDF file and has only one possible download option. (and is read/print/ only) for this if, you open the file up in Adobe acrobat 5 - you can add text boxes into it which allows you to type directly on the form.

good luck!

Isn't it such a relief they didn't accept apps till August! Now when I submit mine (hopefully soon) - I don;t feel like such a slacker who is way behind everyone else

I didn't know that they weren't accepting applications until August, but that's great because I will also try to get mine out soon and it will be early.
