While our freshman class is currently full, we anticipate having some vacancy at NYU in the event other colleges and universities go to their own wait lists early this summer. As a result, we made the decision to admit exactly 187 students from our wait list in the last 48 hours. We will likely admit a few dozen additional students in the coming weeks, but I will provide a more concrete update as soon as any additional admission decisions are released. Read More
I’m a part of the NYU Presidential Honors Scholar program (the most pretentious name ever, I know). As a scholar, for spring break, I traveled with a group of about 30 students to NYU’s site in Prague for a week of exploration and learning. The rest of this post will tell you more about what we did, but let me just sum everything up by saying that it was AMAZING.
One of the best things about living in New York is that it’s like living in 5 different cities, each of the different boroughs have their own personality and flavor that’s fun to explore. Last week my friends and I ventured into Brooklyn not only to explore the borough but check out the Brooklyn Nets play against the Washington Wizards at the new Barclay’s Center. Read More
On March 29, we offered 6,210 students (roughly 13% of our applicant pool) the opportunity to remain on our waiting list in the event space materializes in our freshman class. Each year, the number of students we are able to admit from our wait list varies widely. Read More
The White House Easter Egg Roll, not to be confused with the White House Easter eggroll, is a yearly celebration where the President and First Family invite every-day Americans onto the South Lawn to partake in a day of springtime fun and entertainment. After the Sequester’s cancellation of White House tours, it was unsure if President Obama would be able to continue this tradition, but luckily for us, it was able to continue.
To think it will be three years since the time when I only imagined being on the NYU Washington Square Park campus. To think I was screaming in my living room and shaking from the tears. This was my dream school, but I never ever visited the campus. After receiving my acceptance letter, I tried to convince my folks to fly us out to NYC to visit my future home, but financial situations grounded me in California. So, the school remained this strange daze that would be coming true in a couple of months. I had only seen NYU once in 8th grade. It was a brief love affair (it only lasted less than five minutes), but it is the east, and NYC is the sun.
So, real talk, you guys. I have the coolest internship.
As an admissions guide at NYU, I mention my AMAZING internship on almost every tour, and the fact that almost no one on any of these tours has ever heard of the organization makes me intensely sad. And maybe (just maybe) after this post, there will be a few more people in the world who know about it.
The deadline for transfer admission application submissions has now passed.
The majority of applicants for transfer admission will not receive word of their admission decision before mid-May. Read More
Like many graduating seniors across the nation I have started the job search process, Duh Duh Dunn! While it’s not necessarily the most pleasant experience of my life I have to admit the Career Development Offices at NYU and the Tisch School of the Arts specifically are super helpful. Read More
When I got into NYU, I was thrilled. After accepting my offer of admission, the first order of business was ordering some NYU swag. Browsing the t-shirts, sweatshirts, notebooks, and more, my dad wondered aloud, “What’s NYU’s mascot?” A good question…I wasn’t sure myself. Everything NYU sent me had torches on it, and a lot of the merchandise did too…were we the Torches? Luckily, a quick Wikipedia search revealed to me that we were not the NYU Torches but the NYU…Violets? “It’s a good thing purple is my favorite color,” I mused to myself.
