    If anyone's interested, you can call NYU and find out whether they've decided not to interview you. Sniff.

    Hi Katie

    Sorry about the news. Can you tell me when you were complete. I have been complete since 12/12 so I do not think I should call as yet. What do you guys think?

    Bebe-

    I'm in the same boat, I've been complete there since 12/14 (transcript issues, don't you hate that?) and I'm thinking it's too early to call, considering two weeks of the past month have been holiday. It also kind of scares me since the admissions instructions tell you to not call, not have you parents call, not have you doctor call, not have your advisor call, etc., etc. I kind of get the feeling that they don't want a lot of calls, I don't know :) Probably in about two weeks if I haven't heard, I'll suck it up and call and hope they don't yell at me...

    For those of you who called, what did you say? Did you just straight out asked if you were going to get an interview or not?

    I haven't called NYU specifically, but when I have called other schools I usually try to have a reason to do so, if I were answering the phones all day with people asking about "the status of their applications" I'd be annoyed. It's a polite-ish way of saying "So, are you going to interview me or not?" For non-AMCAS schools, I got 8 college credits from a school that is stupid about sending transcripts, so I call to check if the transcript got there. For AMCAS schools, SwampMan mentioned calling to verify your address...that sounds good, haven't tried that one yet! One school I decided to withdraw my app from MD/PhD and only be considered for MD, that was a good reason to call--and I got an interview out of that one!

    Anyway, that's my opinion, take it or leave it.

    Calling does help - you're right. I had called Cornell and the next day I got an interview invite. Well, I just called NYU to see if they had received my update letter and xtra rec and the guy who sounded like he was in a great hurry, said yes. No mention of an interview or not. Oh well <img src="confused.gif" border="0">

    ScoobyDoo mentioned in the "Interview Season" thread that there's only 3 days left of interviewing (Feb 13, 14, 15), wow! (Scooby, how do you know?) Maybe I changed my mind and will call to check on my status, even though I've only been complete since Dec 14...

    Bebe, any thoughts?

    Scooby,

    you say you called to set up your interview, that was AFTER you had received some sort of interview invite, right? Did that come in the mail or email?

    Hey wait a sec. I just called, they are interviewing through MARCH! BTW, my app was complete 12/12.

    A guy answered the phone. I should have gotten his name. Sorry :(

    Scooby, who did you talk to?
    You probably know much more than I do at this point!

    WHEW!!

    Thanks Bebe, I was sort of in a little panic for a time, there! Scooby, shame on you, messing with my head like that ;)

    No hard feelings, though. I think this site just gets me more anxious, I should not read it for a while...

    Sorry for replying so late to several of the questions:

    - I received their "app complete" postcard on Oct 15.
    - I just called with a polite one-liner asking "to perform a status check on my application." They answered me with another one-liner: "The committee has decided not to invite you for an interview." Then there was a pause.

    Hmm, I suppose I should call them, since I've been complete since Oct 7. THey've probably rejected me already.
