I just called them. Last week they were saying, "you should call back today." and now the lady said that I should call back in two weeks. This is ridiculous. I guess this year they are trying a different approach...interviewing after December 1st. :mad:

their lack of organization is ticking me off.

I emailed them and they told me, "keep your eye on the mail for an interview invite soon"
Well--soon was over two weeks ago...
I HIGHLY doubt I will recieve anything from them until next year.

This is so strange. I know they are one of the schools that start interviewing early. But maybe since many people that apply endup attending other schools, they want to hold back their interviews so only those people that are probably going to attend the school are interviewed. From statics they interview around 800 people and usually most of them get an acceptance letter.

UNLV isn't even close to the most expensive school. NYU, Case, and Marquette all cost more than UNLV. I'm sure there are plenty of others.

Keep in mind that if you are a Nevada non-resident, you can get residency after one year just by living in Nevada for a year. This means you get residency tuition after the first year, which brings the tuition for the last three years to merely $15,000-21,000 a year (depending on which year, since the D4 year only has two trimesters, whereas D2 and D3 have three trimesters).

I called them today to know what the deal with my application is as well. It has already been established that they do not do status checks over the phone but the lady did mention that applications are being reviewed and the interviews have already started. Good luck to everyone!

FYI, I attend NYU and I've seen many interviewees taken on tours and at the cafeteria. I believe the interviews started in late August. Interviews are three times a week and have been going on a regular basis. Just to let you know.

Suprisingly, I'll be having my interview at NYU very soon in a couple of weeks. I guess I was lucky to get an early invite.

Hello,
I don't want to get anyone upset or myself in trouble but I got my invitation letter on 10/24 and I called on 10/25 and I got an interview tomorrow (10/31). I live in NY so maybe that helped, but I was told that there were dates available in January.

I have to say this board is very helpful in preparing one for the interview. I'll post a reply tomorrow stating how the interview went and what to expect to ease some of the tension.

My interview invitation for NYU was mailed out on Oct 7th.
It got lost in the mail and as a result, I just recieved it!
I sent in my AADSAS in July. I contacted Amy Knowles and she told me that it must be lost in the mail! Well, I asked if I could just book the interview date without the confirmation letter and she said yes. For those of you who applied early but still have not heard---contact Amy Knowles and try to get your interview date before recieving the letter. Snail Mail is TOOO slow these days! I called on Oct 28th and have an interview for Dec 5th.

If you have an interview at NYU, don't sweat it at all. You arrive, you have something to drink and eat. While you wait, you're asked to fill out a supplemental application. Then you are called to a room by your interviewer. There were five I believe and four of them are really nice. The fifth is good but he gives people a bit of a hardtime. Afterwards you go on a tour and then have lunch with a second year student.
Nothing you didnt read before.

I had my interview OCtober 28th!!

They interview 4 times a week and see about 15-30 applicants every time. They are interviewing proabably close to 800 people!!If you estimate it satrting from august to April!!! I think the chan ces of getting in are 50/50 if you receive an interview! Wel depending on your stats too.

A D3 right now told me that her class first year was 320 students!!!! If you would like a really good reply from her that I received let me know!!!

Wow! I was just guesstimating the applications interviews versus the class size that i heard.

I think 320 dds plus the other advanced applicants

So where is it on their website?

I must have missed it from the student viewbook?

85% Thats good! My hopes are a little up!

My interview was pretty much laid back. It was just an open folder and tell me about yourself. Then there were a few questions like what do you see yourself doing after dental school. The questions are not hard. However come prepared to ask questions because a lot of the interview is going to be on you. My Interviewer was Novella Jones. Good luck!:clap:

Thanks.
I saw about a couple interviewers, but I didn't know all of them.
Of the ones I did see:
Amy Knowles (Consider yourself lucky to have her)
Wesselman (spelling was something like this, great guy and very laid back interview)
Estefan (She was nice too. She just asked one question: why dentistry and she did all the talking afterwards)
Castracane (Very laid back and easy going)
Hittelman (Hard-hitting but there to test your nerves)

I'm curious, who did mutans have.

I also got invited for an interview without DAT scores. When I called and scheduled an interview they gave me a date in Jan. This date is after I take the DAT.

When is your interview scheduled for?

How soon after you interview, do they send you a rejection or acceptance letter?
Anyone know? I interview on Dec 5th and worry that I may have to wait until January to hear from them due to the christmas break. :(

Hi ! Some of you PMd me regarding input drom my friend a d3 at NYU. Not me!!!!! I am a pre-dental applicant.

I only hear good things from NYU. I have not heard anything that I don't expect.

Here is the quote.

This is (D3) from NYU. That day you had your interview, I was seeing an emergency patient and at 11:30 I had an OMP exam. I would have liked to talk to you in person but Monday was a hectic day. As for attending NYU as a dental school, I personally like the school. Of course every school has its own faults, NYU has many. We have the highest turn over rate. That is, the freshman class starts out with about 320 students, after the first year, that number can drop to 280. And as the semesters go by, so do some of the students. There is only one way to describe attending NYU. "Kill or be killed" You can quote me on that! That is exactly how it is here. No one will look out for you but yourself. Its New York city, the same attitude applies to the school's philosophy. I am a 3rd year student now, the first and second years are the hardest. Now they have changed the academics, its a block schedule which means you are in class most of the day. You get alot of lect!
ure hours and the tests are long. When I first started, we had individual classes. Some of the lower classmen complain about how hard it is intergrading all the classes. Some people learn better that way, its totally up to how you learn. But with all that, I have to say that you will not get the clinical experience any where else in the country. NYU is the largest dental facility in the country. You will never run out of patients. You do more procedures here than anyone else will at a different school. We have all the specialities, everything in the building, so you can refer your patient to Endo, Perio, Prostho, Ortho, Pedo, and NYU is the only school with an implant clinic. Right now I'm working as an assistant for the Continuing Dental Education program in implants. Every Wednesday I assistant in the surgeries, anything from multiple implant placements to Maxillary sinus lifts and bone grafts. As far as the cost, NYU is expensive. You have to buy everything yo!
urself. One thing I didn't like was not keeping my instruments. You have to give everything back to the school the end of your 2nd year. You can't keep any of the hand pieces or anything else. So basically you are paying $7000 a year to rent everything from the school. If you lose anything, you have to replace it, so its almost worth buying your own instruments from a dental supply store. Which leads me to the next thing, if its not bolted down, it will disappear. We have problems with things getting stolen. Even if you are in the pre-clinical labs, you will using your hand piece and get up to ask a faculty a question, if you don't take it off and take it with you, when you come back, it will be gone. You have to watch your stuff at all times. I never had anything stolen from me, but all my friends, they have had something stolen. That goes for lockers too, never leave without checking your locker. When you realize it, its too late. I lived in the dorms for the !
first 2 years. You want to be close to school because your classes and tests will be at 8 and commuting is a nightmare, especially in the winter. The dorms are expensive, about $1600 a month. You can find something cheaper, like a studio close by, but you have to pay finder fees and that could get expensive. New York city is a great place, alot of things to do. Whatever you are into, you can do it here. Its a great place to live. I hope I have given you the inside to NYUCD. If you have any other questions, email me. The school is respected throughout the country. You can get into PG programs and residency programs fairly easily, these places know NYU grads have the clinical experience. Good luck with your admissions. Let me know what other schools you are interested in. I interviewed and was accepted to Boston University and Nova Southeastern, but I decided on NYU and I believe!
I made the right decision.

Again this is from a D3 at NYU. Not mE! I graduated college with her though and I am really jealous right now.

D3 thats only one year to go.

Also, I am still trying to figure out who interviewed me. Dr. Kanalakis or somehing. He is in charge of the clinical! I will call MOnday!!! It's one of those things you have to know!

thanks mutans, your post was very helpfull, but what does your friend mean by block schedule and individual classes:

Now they have changed the academics, its a block schedule which means you are in class most of the day. You get alot of lect! When I first started, we had individual classes. Some of the lower classmen complain about how hard it is intergrading all the classes.

AADSAS screwed up my local address.... they left out my apartment #, so schools that tried to send me interview invites werent able to send me the letters.
THEN here's about the NYU part, they called me a month ago telling me that my letter was returned. they got my correct address and just today... (a month later) i finally recieved my letter. but i missed the deadline to respond already... i guess i can always call and explain my situation.. but this is just annoying! all aadsas's fault!!!

+pissed+

Another victim of the AADSAS Conspiracy! They interview a lot so I don't think you will have any problem. You should have just made the interview date then! You don't really need the letter. Wait a minute! YEah! They ask for the letter right when you get in the building and probably a security thing! But they know you are an interviewee because you will be ina black suit and all purtied' up. Good luck!

Hey all-
I am currently a 1st year at NYU. I was in your shoes a year ago and understand the many questions you have. I haven't been on here for a few months, but would be happy to answer any questions you may have about NYU's curriculum and the school in general. Good luck!

Brian and PI-guy,

Does Block classes pretty much mean that your lecture classes are integrated. For example, instead of Bio chem, anatomy and dental anatomy as seperate classes, They would be all integrated into one lecture class and be in there for 4 - 6 hours.

Does sum that up? Please let us know!Block Scheduling?

No- our classes are block- but not like that. Here is our schedule (not including the non-science based courses). The first 6 weeks we took Biochem. 4 weeks we took Cell Bio and now until the end of the semester we have Histology. Throughout the semester we have Dental Anatomy and Lab (2 days/week for lab and about 2 hours lecture each week).
Other courses we are taking throughout the semester include Epidemiology, Ethics, Dentist-patient Relationships, and other related courses... Next semester we will be taking Gross Anatomy, Neurophys, Organ Systems, and other related courses, including Dental Anatomy and Lab.

Pi_Guy: you got anything to add?????

This block schedule is actually kinda nice b/c it spaces out all the 'hard' classes. Most other schools have histo, anatomy, biochem all at once. Here, you can concentrate on one subject at a time and do well....well, theoretically you should do well...

nothing more to add other than to enjoy undergrad life while you can!! Aside from the dinner (booze) cruise around manhattan during orientation week, 24 credit hours will get to you...

Brian, my laundry is piling up, bro.......where u at?
