Hi there! Congrats on your decision! I am so excited about starting at NYU in the fall. I really can't wait.

What are your plans until then? When are you moving? Have you figured out where you are going to live?

I'm working a crap job until this summer as a waiter, and then I will be traveling to Hawaii for a few weeks with my wife (she is from Hawaii), and then we'll come back and try to move in late july.

Are you nervous about getting housing? I bought a bunch of books about living in NYC that are interesting. It seems like you can't really "plan ahead" in terms of getting a place to live. You kind of just get one right before you move there.

Anyway, congrats again and see you in August! Let me know if you have any questions too.

Very true. Realtors won't appreciate you if you are looking for an apt w/ a move-in date 3 months from now. Apts here are in great demand and realtors recommend not looking for an apt until 2 weeks (tops) from your move-in date.

G'luck to all the first years. BTW, they're finally renovating the clinics here. May - July, the entire 5th floor will be remodeled w/ new clinic chairs, supply desks. The other floors will be remodeled at a later date so hopefully by the time you guys enter clinics, you'll be practicing in all new chairs...

Duck,

We're planning to move probably 2 or 3 weeks before class begins, but that all depends on how fast we can find a place. We're hoping to find something close to school, however, that might change as well because prices get quite steep as you get closer to the college. Honestly, housing is my last concern right now, I just want this semester to end on a good note. Btw, nice job on that scholarship.

Just like my brother said, we will worry about housing later on. It would be best to get in touch with any fourth years who reside in the area and who may be leaving a lease. The landlords love to have someone move right in after the previous students to avoid any realtor fees and advertising. We will keep you updated on anything new, but whoever gets in tough with the housing deparment first should post any pertinent info.

Well, I just decided on NYU today. I'm so nervous about everything. I'm from Florida and I've always been around friends and family here. I don't know anyone in New York and it's going to be quite a challenge for me. I hope I'm ready to take on New York.
I guess I'm excited just the same as I am nervous.

Congrats to you all!

I was hoping someone could answer these questions:

-how full is the class
-how many applications have they received
-what is the waitlist policy and how often are people taken off

As you can tell I'm a prospective member of the class of 09

any info would be great! thanx!!! :)

This is what I know as of late January when I interviewed there:

1. The tour guide said that the class is half full.
2. I think they have 2000+ applicants. She said that they accept 75% of interviewees.
3. Sorry I don't know anything about the waitlist.

Good Luck!!

Congrats and welcome! See you in August! You will love living in NYC.... And there will be many others in a similar position (away from friends and family), so don't worry.

YAY NYU CLASS OF 2009!

Let's all have a drink after the first day of class! If we can find a bar big enough to hold our whole class. Hehe.
Rumor has it they are somewhat cutting down this class size. Good news for us!

See you in August, and please keep posting any good info about apartment hunting.

-Nicole :D

Umm, the questions asked weren't challenging at all. However, the answers you give will be the most crucial part of the interview. Just pick the right words and be honest. I had questions like "tell me something about yourself?" or "what's your greatest weakness?". Good luck.

hi there.
i can't beleive ppl haven't been talking about nyu for a week.

anyways...
i had re-sent my official DAT scores last week (because they didn't have mine, even though they told me my file was complete back in december)...i spoke to admissions, they said they PROBABLY have it, but he can't 'open my file' up to see, because they have made a decision and i will get something in the mail shortly.

WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?!?!? :eek:

decision...as in YAY? :D or NAY! :( or interview? :oops:
i really couldn't get anything more out of them....so now i'm just waiting...i was thinking...if they wanted to reject me, they could've without my official DAT scores...or did they want to verify that i really did only do mediocre :( and then reject me?
any insights? :confused:

I am absolutely pissed off right now! Today UNLV sent me an application hold, citing they had not receieved my offical DAT scores. The friggen CDA sux arse! They did this twice to me! I was lucky enough to catch it with NYU, after getting nervous and asking whether my file was complete lin the fall. The CDA is so full of it. They really ought to refund our money!

Our pathetic organization is called the Canadian Dental Association. They are the ones in charge administering the DAT and sending the scores, all at a very steep price (Not to mention a slugglishly inept beaurocracy running the show).

Oh, so you would rather go to UNLV over Columbia, I get it. Unless, as debated some time ago, you were keeping your application open just to see if you get accepted, without any intention of going to UNLV. Wouldn't that be wrong?

No, I would NEVER go to UNLV over Columbia. No, aside from UOP (b/c is it so sought after). did I send an application withdrawl to any other school I applied to. It would have been an incredible waste of time to withdraw from Temple, UNLV, etc since many will get acceptance from there anyway. So when I get an email saying they don't have my DAT's I get pissed b/c this could have usefull before I got accepted to Columbia.

You and almost everyone else here would never actually withdraw your application, despite what you write on this board. Don't flame it up.

Actually, I withdrew from all the schools that I was not planning on attending after I got accepted from my top choice. By not "wasting your time" to withdraw, you take spots from people and/or reduce the chance of others gaining acceptance. Also, if you did get accepted and eventually declined that acceptance, you have added that much extra stress and time of uncertainty to others waiting to hear or waitlisted to that school. :thumbdown:

Do you have to "officially" withdraw if you havent sent in your supplementary fees and applicatioin? I applied to UNLV and Creighton, but I did not send them my secondary check, but i figured i wouldnt have to withdraw because they wont process my application until they get the check, correct?

I agree you should withdraw from schools you have NO interest in... but it rarely works out that way. For instance, I withdrew from arizona, because I have no interest in going there. There are many that I am not sure about as yet or want to check out. For instance, I am going to go to Columbia and NYU interviews, as I was interested in the school, until I heard so many bad things about it... but seeing is believing, until you check out the school, you wont know for sure.

My point with palos. was that if you don't have any interest in attending, give the courtesy to other students who haven't gotten in to d-school. On the otherhand, if you might go or have any doubt, ofcourse you should keep your application active. Palos. has made it seem like he is def. going to Columbia no matter what, and that he doesn't care if he got in to unlv, he just wants to see if he would get in, or an interview. Thats what bothers me. There is no way you would go to Arizona, so you withdrew, and I feel the same is true for Palos. with UNLV.

i just assumed it was the fault of NYU...not CDA...but i guess i'm wrong.
actually it's ALSO NYU's fault..cuz they told me i was under-review in december...that my file was complete.... :(

if it is an acceptance or interview (fingers crossed)...i'd like to question whether them NOT having my official DAT score had something to do with the lateness of contacting me....1) they told me they had all my stuff in december, 2) even if they didn't have all my stuff, don't they usually send out letters saying that i'm missing stuff?

oh well..time will tell...

your statement is false .

i don't want to start anything here, but if u have no intentions, whatsoever of attending the above schools, please, please, please withdraw your application. i don't have a single acceptance. i couldn't help that possibly my grades aren't as good as yours, or my interviewing skills...but my passion for dentistry (i believe) is definitely there. :thumbup:

it's unfortunate that i haven't gotten accepted anywhere yet (i'm sure i'm speaking for several people), and it makes it harder because my home is not in Canada, and I honestly don't know what I am going to do if I don't hear from schools soon (either yes', or no's)...do I move back home - 1/2 way across the world?...or stay in Canada, or what? It's a very stressful time, with school and dental school apps, and seriously not knowing what the heck i'm doing after school...so if u could help us out, by declining your offers, that would be great :thumbup: .

but, hey...if u had 2nd thoughts about schools...i totally understand about not declining, yet.

fruity... one of my LOR wasnt in... they did not send me anything until my application was COMPLETE... and I called them up in Jan to ask them about my application, they said it was completed. In feb, I found out at my maryland interview that aadsas didnt send one of my LOR.

thats why my interview is soooooo late... my other interviews were in Jan... but my nyu/columbia is in march because my application wasnt complete...

dont give up hope... there admin sucks, and good luck with CDA too :D im personally glad now i wrote US dats, although it meant i couldnt apply to canadian schools.
Good luck

Do you need to officially withdraw if your secondary application and fee isnt in? If so, then I need to call up Creighton and UNLV...

(Just wondering)

i don't know...but u've got good numbers...if i was on ad comm..i MAY think "huh...pretty book smart...could still be scatterbrain with payments and supplementary materials"...so they COULD still hold onto your file...who knows?!

hey, i think i read that u're from Va? and u go to school here?..cool. do u go to UofT?

I'm @ UofT :confused: (why, i dunno!)...but my sis went to UVa...i wish i went there!...charlottesville & UVa are BEAUTIFUL!

I apologize if I came across as greedy or arrogant. I have an extremely hectic schedule trying to finish of my degree and I didn;t have time to withdraw from the other schools, except for UOP.

Your stats are not far off from mine. In fact we have very similar carving scores! I am surprised, as are many of us, that not one school has given you an acceptance. Before i was accepted at Columbia I was probably the most nervous pre-dent in North America, I honestly didn't think I'd get in anywhere...but luck strikes. I hope it does for you too.

no u didn't come off as arrogant or greedy...u just told the truth! :thumbup: :oops:

anyways...u and i both (and most others) have busy schedules...i, too, am trying to finish my degree, finish my thesis project (pulling 20+hrs @ the lab), working a part-time job, playing varsity squash, student government, etc. (i'm not however married with children! i know there are LOTS of ppl doing WAAAAY more than me! :eek: so kudos to them)...on top of that, compared to you, i have not got an acceptance.

i don't know what the formality is to withdraw, but i do hope u can find some time to send them out an email (if u do not intend on attending the other schools - now that's a tongue twister right [email protected] 8:30am in the mornin' :laugh: )

and thanks... i hope LOTSA and LOTSA :luck: LUCK :luck: strikes TOO!

well off to analyse more protein levels in degenerated mouse brains...YEEEHAAAAWWWWWWWWWWWWWw :D

I agree that the CDA sucks.
I can't even count how many schools contacted me about not receiving my DAT scores (US and Canadian alike).
It's been really frustrating considering it's rolling admissions and all.

Guess I should've done the US one when I had the chance.
Too bad I wasn't readya t the time and had to postpone it. And now I've paid for a DAT that I don't want to have to take anymore :mad:
i wish i could refund it haha

i don't know...but u've got good numbers...if i was on ad comm..i MAY think "huh...pretty book smart...could still be scatterbrain with payments and supplementary materials"...so they COULD still hold onto your file...who knows?!

hey, i think i read that u're from Va? and u go to school here?..cool. do u go to UofT?

I'm @ UofT :confused: (why, i dunno!)...but my sis went to UVa...i wish i went there!...charlottesville & UVa are BEAUTIFUL!
hahaha... the funny part is i am scatterbrained :laugh: thats why my application was sooooo late :eek: ive never had to deal with "rolling admission" so I had no idea until it was too late...

i have a funny story, i actually grew up in mississauga, i got to mcgill...I didnt want to go to uft, i heard many bad things about it. my family moved to the states while i was in college, so now im moving down there to be closer to them :D --> hence why im so keen on VCU and maryland

anywas... ill call up schools and cancel officially. but it sucks that you have to wait so long fruity, i really hope you get in, im sure you will, uft is a really good school and theyll recognize a good applicant when they see you :D :D

knock em dead at NYU :luck: lots and lots of luck :luck: :luck:

Fruity,

How and when did nyu contact you for the interview? Also, when is the interview scheduled for? I also applied there, but have not heard a word. This whole dental school proccess is making me very depressed. Well, i want to wish you the best of luck :luck: You'll do great...please keep us updated if you find anything out during the interview. Thanks again :thumbup:

emailed in december..they said i was under-review...with the assumption that my file was complete...i let it be.
come late jan, i called...again still under review. thanks for patience.
late feb, i called....i specifically asked if they have everything.answer: NO, no DAT scores.
so i sent them 1.5 weeks ago. and i got an invite TODAY, for apirl 1st.

gdluck!

Hi NYU class of 2009,
I am also going to NYU this fall and I am very excited! NYU sent me acceptance letters last week.
I applied really late in the cycle (#79XX) and when I had interview on March, an admission person told me that seats were almost filled, but fortunately NYU offered me a seat. :)

Anyway, see you all in fall.

Hey toothcandy4u and mitchse-r:

Do you guys know of the state of open seats? How much longer will they conduct interviews? Any info you can provide for this waiter would be appreciated...I can't obtain any info whatsoever.

Thanx!
