Hi there. This is Ted Jacobi, one of the Admissions Officers at New York University. I hope everyone is having a great start to the school year. Whether you are a senior researching colleges before filling out your Common Application, a junior whose guidance counselor has tasked you with visiting websites to learn about colleges, an ambitious sophomore or freshman, who is curious about the college application process, or even the oft’ forgotten, but always appreciated transfer student, you’re in the right spot. You’ve made it…congratulations!
Throughout the year my colleagues and I (click to find your NYU representative) will be posting information here, as well as on our social media accounts, @MeetNYU, which you can find on Twitter, YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram. Use these sites to interact with us and ask us questions. It’s way more fun to answer your questions with a video, picture, story, or tweet than to send you an email. And it forces my boss to make informational videos, based on your questions – click here to hear him explain our application process – it really does help!
Over the next few weeks you’ll be hearing from admissions officers representing colleges across the country in your high schools, at college fairs, and receptions. My colleagues and I will be traveling the globe and you can click here to see if we are hosting a reception in your city. Many of my colleagues will also be hosting individual meetings for students to learn more about NYU Abu Dhabi and NYU Shanghai so check your inbox for an invitation or email us at email@example.com for details about your city. You can also shoot us a message on any MeetNYU platform.
A good start to the school year is important no matter where you are in your college search. So relax, have fun, and remember what I said at the beginning. You’ve made it…congratulations! No matter what happens as you carry out your college search, you’re going to hear those words at the end of it. Why? Because you’re going to be accepted by a great college, so take a deep breath. We’re excited you’re researching NYU and we look forward to meeting you!
