NYU sent me an EMPTY small envelope

This forum made possible through the generous support of SDN members, donors, and sponsors. Thank you.

Wow... call them and ask what that was about? I think I have a feeling... but better to try and get an official answer first.

cant tell me anything on phone... only send out another.... maybe i should just hop on a train....

I am devastated... I want to hop on a train right now and go see... :( Should I get dressed nicely and go in and meet with them.

This was my only interview.. and I have a young child, and I just feel like this is terrible news for my family...

Trying not to get too down

Sorry to hear that! I know how you feel especially after receiving the empty envelope! Hang in there...There are many applicants who go to their first choice and space open up for you.

I am pretty sure that it is harder to get a rejection letter
that getting an acceptance, once you have an interview.

or..

am I in self-denial,,,,,,,
for my upcoming interview at NYU on Dec.12.....
:scared::scared:

Anyways, I hope you get good news!

thanks for the complement of my scores

Nope... someone UMDNJ told my father (ugh! dont ask, its a buddy of his) that word is I am "not competitive" but that was back in the summer and he basically told me to expect a rejection.... but i havent gotten one yet.

Nothing from Temple or Columbia though.

I just feel in love with NYU, and I can really see myself being happy there.

Aww, I hope everything works out for you!! I have a family with a young child too and I know how much it means to you and your family. Goodluck and everything will work out in the long run. Try to stay positive.

Sorry to hear that, it's terrible mistake from NYU. Cant play with someone's feeling like that. It's life or death there.

Only acceptances and waitlist letters where sent on Dec 1 from NYU, rejections will be sent later so there is still hope.

Thats not what they told me... but I do hope that is the case...

actually I hope they had me on a waitlist but at the last min decided to let me in... so they grabbed my waitlist letter... and threw it away (to prepare my acceptance letter), but somehow the envelope got mailed....:D wishful thinking..i should know in a matter of a few hours

When were you at NYU for your interview, I think I was there too. Did we talk about your Russian friend?

If that's the case than you probably got a waitlist.

...and did you seriously only apply to 4 schools?? :(

3.1 GPA, with average DAT scores.

It was a waitlist envelope. I don't think NYU rejects people this early in the cycle. The letter I received last year was a small waitlist envelope that asked me to keep them posted on my progress through the year.

WAITLISTED..... i guess it was the best outcome with a small envelope... somehow i was just hoping this was all a mix up...

I guess after all the drama i shouldnt call up... but I kind of wanna know where I sit on the waitlist... maybe ill wait a few days.. although it did say... "Feel free to call me if you have any further questions."

At NYU a waitlist is almost as good as an acceptance because of the high probability that people will choose another cheaper school

Don't lose hope! You're probably near the top of the waitlist, and lots of people will probably decline because of $$. :luck:

Another tidbit to raise your hopes a little.

NYU will only interview about 800 people from there over 500 acceptances will be handed out before the class starts next August. This is still so early in the game I can almost promise you that you will get in.

Dont give up hope! I think zorie is right, as people get into other schools they may pick cheaper alternatives and spots will open up! Keep us posted and good luck!!

A waitlist is something to be very proud of! :) I'm hoping you are on the top of that list.

Waitlist is still better than rejection. It's still horrid that you got an empty envelope. What a way to give you a ton of anticipation and panic.
