Any one else out there planning on going to NYU?
blz said:I'm planning to...only i need an acceptance first! I interviewed back in october so I'm hoping to hear something feb. 15th. wish me luck, i thought the school/city/students were awesome at the interview.
lulubean said:NYU is one of my top choices - interviewed in January and am hoping for good news!!!
good luck to all - hope to see you next year!
blz said:Anyone interview early (like october) that did not hear yet? I guess I got rejected because if they wanted me they'd tell me by now atleast.
rugirlie said:I disagree... NYU is rolling admissions so if they definitely didn't want you, they would have rejected you already post-interview. If anything, the lack of response you've gotten from them suggests that they put you in a hold/waitlist pile and wanted to wait until the end of the interview season to decide on you. I'm fairly certain you're still in the running. Good luck next week! (Good luck to myself as well lol)
kimmer579 said:How did you find out about it? I know they have a minority second look weekend, but is this one for everyone?
the1111gal said:I think I've posted elsewhere that if I go to NYU I'm def doing it--chance to move in early and get used to the city, etc...In other news, I got my financial aid package from them...eh...I'd be about 195k in debt if it stays constant over 4 years...that's a lot of debt!!!!!!
FaytlND said:Thought I would bump this thread. NYU seems to get no love around here, but I am about 99% sure NYU is wehre I will be next year, and I was hoping to link up with anyone else who is going to be there next year as well. I am very excited, and can't wait till August.
Iamajew said:Hey jodvez,
Congratulations on your acceptance. I got no free money from them. I got the maximum subsizidized stafford amount which helps a little (efc of 0), but that's the best part of my package....just goes downhill from there. I can't wait to attend though and am actually crazy enough to not factor money into my decision to go there. It isn't because i have the money, it's because i really think nyu is a great place. If it is aecom or nyu for you and you like new york city and what nyu has to offer, i don't think you have much of a decision to make.
As for the married housing, i'm getting married in a month and asked a lot about this during my interview and with the housing people. Unfortunately, there is no "couples housing", but you can apply for housing in the Sackler Institute. It is very reasonable there (somewhere around 700-1200 in price range) and the rooms are a little bit bigger than what you can get at Rubin Hall...although they only offer one bedrooms and nothing bigger. If your spouse isn't the medical type (as mine isn't), living in a hospital isn't the greatest either. I think there are some apartments in sackler that don't have more than one window in them. And for being married and living in Rubin, you don't want to even try that...unless sharing a bathroom with other people on your floor is your thing.
I just moved across the street from nyu med in this insane building called kip's bay towers. It is amazing. The complex itself is composed of 4 buildings which pretty much occupy 30-33 streets between 1st and 2nd avenue. You have a private park. You have a great apartment (studios are roughly 700-800sq ft. and one bedrooms go to 1400 sq ft.), a great building where tons of residents, med students, and doctors live, and couldn't be closer to nyu. Apartments there are more expensive to rent than student housing. Studios are 1700 and up and one bedrooms probably start at around 2000. BUT the units are MUCH cheaper here than other neighborhoods in manhattan because of the buidling's location on 2nd avenue (it's a little far from the subway). Go to www.kipsbaycondo.com or www.kipsbaytowers.com and call the number to find any available spaces. I'm having a great time living here.
Basically, unless it is your only option, you will be a lot happer living off campus. The housing department was pretty unhelpful in helping find a place for my wife and me. The woman who works there will help you find a place off campus by working with other brokers...but there is a markup on this type of service and you'll probably end up paying more this way than by going with a no-fee listing. If you need help or have any questions, feel free to PM me. Hope this helps.
jdovez said:Hey everyone, I just got an offer off of the waitlist today, I am just not sure if I want to go yet!!
LII said:Hey jdovez,
Do you mind supplying a few more details - How you received the acceptance (email/phone/snail mail), who called, etc. Thanks! Congratulations on your acceptance. I wish you the best of luck with your decision.
Drdrums said:jdovez, had you received an email in the last week asking about your continued interest?
FaytlND said:Wow, this thread has come to life again...I have to say that has gotten me a bit more excited for next fall.
About the beginning of next year, Orientation does start on August 22 (Monday) and we are allowed to move in on August 18 (the preceding Thursday).
I did get my financial aid as well, my EFC was 1000, and I got 3000 in free money. I think it may have helped though that I have a younger brother in college as well. All i nall the money doesn't worry me, because it wasn't going to be much cheaper than the 50 grand a year I am looking at at NYU. I was shocked when my state school sent me a budget of around 41,000 with no scholarship money--all loans. For me, its worth the extra 10 grand a year to be at a better med school in a much better location.
Looking forward to meeting everyone next year.
