    Hi,

    I am starting this thread for all of us who r waiting for NYU. Last year the first posting about the NYU interview was on dec 8. so I am sure folks will be getting interview offers next week, please post all the interview related stuff, including scores and other stuff here. That way there wont be too many threads regarding NYU for the next year. It will be less confusing and less stressful for all of us,
    Thanks
    :luck:

    the NYU application packet on their web site mentions that the first notification to the applicants will be on dec 1 so they will be for sure sending interview letters soon. i think some of us will receive interview letters this week, so if any one gets the interview letter be kind enough to post it here, so that all of us can know that the interview process has at last started,
    thanks,

    I know all of you are very nervous. How ever the best thing to really is to wait till some one actually writes in saying"I got a letter".

    Thats really the best. I hope this will help all of you calm down. I completely understand how all of you feel. I have gone through all that and was half way across the globe at that point.

    THEY ARE ONLY INTERVIEWING 100 PEOPLE THIS YEAR FOR ONLY 35 SPOTS!!!!! :( :scared:

    lol, bet that gave you all a good scare huh?
    hahah anyways here's the real truth about what's going on at NYU....



    I've been working at the NYU research center since september so i'm in touch with them everyday...i've checked at the admissions office in person multiple times.

    Amy Knowles that was the head of admissions and student affairs for the idp program last year has been moved to the nursing school.

    As of yet they have not filled her position with anybody new. So this is the reason that the interviews are starting late (i.e. january).

    Now, as to why they havent' been able to fill her spot yet is beyond my understanding, but for whatever reason, that's the situation...

    So to lay it to rest once and for all..as of right now interviews will start in jan.
    Good luck

    Khurram

    NYU has winter recess from 19th Dec to Jan 2, so we have to receive letters next week, i am not sure if the winter recess means that only students have break or if it means the faculty is also off for those days, any info there?

    I Hope that all those applying to NYU will get interviews soon. It must be very difficult waiting whilst they restructure their admissions. Be patient however and try not to anoy the staff. NYU is a good school which considers students with low grades. 3 of my friends got into the DDS program last year. One had a 78 and the others an 80 and 82 on the NBDE Part 1. So good luck and try to be patient.

    Hi, I think the GPA is not so critical. They look for 3.0. Clinical experience or research does help a lot. 84 is a good score for them. They will not deny you on this basis. But what they want to see is something that makes your application stand out. Try to go to the NYU Dental School research website for the MS in Oral Biology and Dental Materials. If you can get into this program you can get a foot into the door. This is what my friend with a 78 did. I think the director is Dr Anand Dasanayake.....and he is very nice Contact him for information......... he is linked very closely with the Dental School.
    In summary, try to get into this program ......I am certain it will help you a lot. This way you can start making your presence felt at the school and maybe things will work out for you.

    I know this has been mentioned before on the forum, but I wanted to post another reminder, especially since acceptances for all California schools are out. If you have been accepted at any school and you wish to join the program, please inform the other schools you have applied to withdraw you from their list.

    NYU will be sending out their interview calls next week and if you have no intention of going there, it is better that you inform them now so that others, who actually need the interview, have the opportunity.

    For those of us who have not made it yet, don't lose hope. There are still plenty of opportunities and we can still make it :thumbup:

    Hi, how do you think of entering NYU, total $220,000 cost and 3-years long. can anybody discuss the pro and con? Is there anybody plan to try next year's 2-year programs instead of heading into NYU this year?

    Hi everyone:
    Just wanted to let you guys know that when I called NYU earlier this morning, I was told the same - that the interviews are conducted on a rolling basis i.e. based on when you sent your application and when it was reviewed by the committee, you will sent an interview invitation. That was all she told me - Hope that helps.
    Good Luck.
