Hello,
I just recently found out I have been placed on the waitlist at NYU. Does anyone have any idea as to how NYU's waitlist procedures work (e.g. do they rank their waitlist? or 'reassess the applicant pool each time a spot opens up?' , etc.). As far as I know, NYU is not full since they are still offering interview spots.

Also, has anyone been admitted off of the waitlist at NYU? If so, how long were you on the waitlist and when (e.g. month and time) did you come OFF of the waitlist? Thanks for all of your help guys and gals. :) -FS

Well I just asked someone at school how many spots are open and how the waitlist works. Here you go:

They will not give a specific number as to how many seats are left but there are still seats open.

They will not let you know how they rank waitlist people so do not even bother asking them about it. They wouldn't even tell me a current student. It must be a national security issue :laugh:

You can be taken off the waitlist up until the end of the first week of class so there is hope.

# of applicants is up this year so it will be a little harder to gain admissions.

Just hang in there and keep in touch with them and let them know you want to go here. Also ask what you can do to make you a more attractive applicant if not now but for next year.

It is almost March so begin to prepare your stuff for next application cycle should you not get in this one...and make sure it is in on the first possible day!

Hey guys........sorry to hear about the NYU waitlist.......I honestly think that they are just putting you on the side until they see what else is out there.......I know that Broc has been posting that NYu is trying to change their admissions policy and trying to make it tougher to gain admissions, but the truth still remains that NYU is the most expensive school with the largest class size. Come summertime, when the reality hits NYU that most candidates with higher GPAs opt to not attend NYU (with minor exceptions like Broc), they will turn to you guys on the waitlist to fill their VERY LARGE class.......no worries in my opinion! Gaining an interview means that they are considering you, but they know they have the power to make you wait, so they are using it.....

It will all be good.......patience......

RupeshV, what is your gpa? I'm still hoping for an interview with a 3.0 gpa 2.8 science and 19/20/19

Does anyone think NYU is full? Anybody got any inside info or atleast predictions?

MY GPA was similar to yours, but your DAT scores might actually save you. Best of luck.
