January 15th is drawing near and it's time to make a decision!! Well, at this point, I am down to 2 schools to chose from, since I missed the deposit deadlines for both Temple and Boston U. At this point, I am still waiting to hear from USC and have to put a deposit in at either NYU or Pitt. No contest there...I am anxious to leave PA, so that leaves NYU. I really liked NYU when I was there, but I heard something rather disturbing from a dentist who graduated from there. I do not know if this is true, and I find it hard to believe, but he claims that they over-accept students and then eliminate 20% of the accepted students by the end of the first year. Even though I am confident that I will do well, this is still somewhat disturbing. I understand that if the student's GPA is below a certain GPA, you are on academic proabation, etc, but can they deliberately eliminate the bottom 20% of the class?? I would also like any opinions on NYU from people who interviewed there. Did anyone chose NYU?? Thanks!!
