    I live in NYC. Went to NYU for under-grad. I work for multiple GP's that earned their degrees at NYU. They consistently tell me NYU's tuition has "killed" or is "killing" them. And this is when their tuition was 75k per year. Near 20k difference today.

    As a reapplicant, its important to mention to your interviewer what you have done differently from the first time you applied. In other words in which ways you have improved yourself, making you a better candidate this time around specially if you have weaknesses on your application. Nonetheless, focus on your strengths, stay relaxed and confident, you deserve to be there. Also, let them know if you are seriously considering their school. Best of luck ☺️

    Yes, I was waitlisted and then denied.

    Thank you! I received the invitation at 6:00pm.

    Thank you for your advice!!

    No offense* taken! Apologies for the discouraging topic. My point was that it’s important to understand the realities of the financial decision to make an informed decision. Good to chat with NYU alums about it if you can.

    You’re gonna be fine :)!!! I’m a second time applicant too I got rejected without an interview the first time. I interviewed back in December and just be yourself and be honest for sure and tell them why you’re applying again and what mistakes you’ve made or what not. Express your interest in NYU as well and say that you understand every aspect of it/ know the good and bad sides of it.

    Would a Canadian/US dual citizen student with a 3.51 GPA (3.48 sGPA) and 20 AA, 22 PAT, 20 RC, 100 hrs shadowing, club president (advocacy), 1 summer wet research, 1 summer dental office clerk, and TA position be expected to interview at NYU?

    No that wouldn’t hurt you in fact it’d help! They liked that when I said why and what I learned but I got waitlisted because my GPA isn’t the highest so my interviewer said because of that they will waitlist students with GPA/ DATs on the border but he told me to not worry and that I’ll just get during the spring time

    Just to clarify did you get waitlisted and they told you that they’d accept you in the spring?

    That sounds more like a “don’t worry if you’re not accepted right off the bat, spots usually open up around March”

    Of course, I hope that's the case as well. I've just never heard of someone guaranteeing an acceptance when spaces could be filled before the time even comes.

    I guess I just don't like to count my chickens before they hatch.

    We have to believe there is light at the end of the Tunnel.

    So, hopefully we will hear good things from them soon. Best of luck

    I think you can get an interview with those stats but it really does depend on the applicants each cycle. I only had a slightly better GPA and DAT and got in last year. Also Canadian as well:)

    I am sorry about that. Hope you get off the waitlist in March or sooner.

    Do you think your interview went bad or something?

    Hi thank you for your support <3 No I thought it went really well some trip up’s here and there but nothing major really.. I was surprised. I really was falling in love with moving to the city I’m already from the ny area just 30 mins outside of nyc but mt mom lives in the Bronx so I was hoping to live there lol it’s between Touro and nyy now honestly whichever I get into first or have enough time to wait submitting a deposit for Touro if I get into NYU 30 days before......
    I hope I get off too. I was wondering if anyone applied to NYU for the first time and got interviewed after dec 3rd and got waitlisted but got in? Maybe it’s too soon for that but who knows.

    Thought it went well but I’m kinda upset because I got 3 schools that I got waitlisted to and I only applied to 6 lol. Denied to stony, ghosted by Rutgers and VCU, and now buffalo, Touro and nyu have waitlisted me. I’m living in buffalo rn I stayed after undergrad but I’m moving back to NY regardless because my plan B is to go for an MBA.

    Best of luck to you all please keep me posted

    MBA's are not good for applying to dental school. You need an SMP, a Master's that revolves around medical/dental school coursework

    I don't think you understand what I'm saying though...

    If your goal is to pursue dental school... an MBA is not going to improve your chances much.

    Google it yourself...

    Here are some past responses: MBA before dentistry?

    Do with it what you will, your future is yours to pursue.

    I returned home my sister pretty sad and not talking. NYU is one of her dream schools and now I come here and read many people rejected without an interview, I know my sister got rejected too but she is sitting in her room not communicating. I am devasted because there is no way I can go now to NYU even if they invite me with her being rejected :(

    She has 25 TS and 3.98 GPA and tons of social work and work experience. Why would they reject her without an interview? That's so unfair :(

    I gave her a purple pen yesterday.
    She told me this will jinx me, I told her to give it back and she didn't.

    Damn the purple pen :(
