    Since ADEA doesn't list such information, I was wondering if anyone had any updated stats. I've read through some threads that are from 2012 and one person reported that at the interview, they were told 85% interviewed are offered admission.

    Any truth to that?

    per
    85 seems pretty high even considering plethora of seats they have.
    That pretty means if you are invited to interview, you are in, unless you go there ****faced with ill sense of humor.
    Maybe 40~50% ?

    "From what I can recall, I believe Dr. Mejia said 85% of applicants interviewed pre-December receive offers :)

    As an aside, NYU's administration is wonderful and Dr. Mejia is awesome" :)

    This is a post from Nov. 2012.

    The same things been going on in my mind since I got an interview!

    I mean if Dr. Mejia gave out information on interview/acceptance rate, I would assume she still does during NYU interviews. Can someone shed some light on this matter?

    according to other threads with data from reputable resources, acceptance rate is around 30%.

    It would be nice if you could give a link to the previous threads indicating so, or the data itself. 30% seems a bit too low.

    I have a theory...NYU is an expensive school in an expensive city with a 5000 dollar deposit. If you are accepted almost anywhere else it will be cheaper even out of state. So they accept a lot of people but a lot of those people turn down their offers because of cost once they are accepted elsewhere.

    It isn't theory, more of a fact. It is called yield and private dental schools (with some exceptions) inherently have a lower yield which leads them to accept more people in order to fill the class.
