    I was not on the waitlist
    Yes the deposit is 5k (can be split in two payments of 1.5k and then 3.5k) within 30 days of acceptance notification
    Rooting for you good luck!

    Hey everyone! Been watching my thread grow and grow this entire cycle. Excited to see you all that have been accepted and for those of you who are still waiting, keep on being patient (the best advice I can give you). If you guys would like any insight to the school or want to talk to me personally just shoot me a PM and I'd be very happy to talk to you! I didn't get to where I am today without the help of others so don't hesitate to ask me any questions. Best of luck to the rest of you waiting this cycle!!

    When can we expect the next round of acceptances to roll out for people who are waitlisted or interviewed post 12/3?

    That is a question I don't even have an answer too. It is so variable every year.

    Hi! I think it's being started soon by someone that got recently accepted. I would just keep your eyes open for that.

    Housing: Stuytown/PCV, Waterside, or View 34

    Facebook honestly is your best bet!

    Would anyone be willing to tell me what NYU sent in the package to accepted students? I think my Dad threw it away without realizing (sigh).

    Congrats!! In the packet is the paper version of the acceptance you see on your portal, a letter from the vice dean of academic affairs & research regarding the D1 summer research fellowship, FAFSA information, brochure on the Oral Health Center for People with Disabilities, and an infographic about what NYU offers :)

    I thought my interview went fine? They didn’t ask tough questions at all, it was super conversational. Honestly, I think it didn’t help that I am from California. Also, maybe it’s bc i didn’t keep in touch with them. I hear they really like it when you keep them updated and show a lot of interest!

    They tend to take most of the class from NY, with a small amount for OOS or so I've heard.

    But still, with their stats, they should've had an easier time - interview probably didn't go as well as they thought. Unfortunately It happens.

    Does anyone know if they are still extending interview invites? O if anyone received an interview recently, what date was it for?

    When I scheduled my interview I got an invite the same day. I got invited on like.. last Friday lol so whenever that was. But they were interviewing up til January 11th. I could only choose from 7th, 8th, 9th and 11th I believe. One day for during that week was unavailable from what I believe. But I know for sure 7th and 8th were available... but it could very well be that they specifically invite you to interview with a group of people that they’re comparing you with so that’s something to keep in mind too. They may restrict you to certain days for certain reasons. You never know!

    The keeping in touch thing is true. I hear they love attention... but Im wondering when you received your invite and when you interviewed? Because did you rly even have time to “update them?” Lol unless you were pre-December then ya I definitley get it maybe that’s why but if you’re post December I heard people had a super quick turn around like 3 days tops!!

    I received my interview Oct 4 and actually interviewed Nov 5. But idk maybe I rubbed them the wrong way, oh well. I’m happy with my results though, because I was really leaning towards staying close to home LOL. So it’s all good.

    Deposit is $5k. But you can either pay it all at once or split it into 2 payments ($1500 first, then $3500)

    To those of you who have been accepted, congratulations. but if you have another option, really consider the financial realities of choosing NYU. NYU is a great school, but the way they are treating tuition is near criminal.

    NYU Dental School and Med School Tuition is Out of Control

    I believe it’s “near” criminal too. It’s unethical to demand students 600K in debt and also dismiss students each year. It’s like wall street subprime mortgages given out to bad credit lenders. There’s no accountability and it’s being exploited to the maximum. But then again, this is a general phenomenon among dental schools, and NYU just happens to be the one leading the pack with USC. Just my two cents.. everyone is entitled to his or her own opinions!

    Yet 10% of our country's dentists have graduated from NYU and they keep pumping out 300+ each year and it seems to work out just fine. I have never seen a broke dentist in my life. No offence, but I bet you all go to interviews saying you arent in for the money, yet you come here and discourage ppl like this. It's quite hypocritical if you ask me. Also there are a lot of schools that have similar tuition fees with very small differences (ASDOH, MWU, UDM, etc.). The big difference is in NYU you'd be living in Manhattan instead of some suburb in Arizona or downtown Detroit.

    Hi guys! Second-time applicant, just received an interview invite tonight. Scheduled it for next Friday 1/18. Will anyone else be attending? Also, advice from second-time applicants would be appreciated :)
