Wait List Update 2

Here is an update for first-year applicants holding a space on our wait list.

Since May 1, we have admitted another 75 or so students from our waiting list. As of this week, approximately 110 students have been admitted thus far. From this point forward, we do not expect to extend any additional offers of our admission to the following programs: the College of Arts and Science, Core Program in Liberal Studies, Global Liberal Studies Program, Gallatin School of Individualized Study, or Tandon School of Engineering.

We may have additional space in our other programs but it is too early to tell how many and when those spaces may open.

If you are holding a space, please take the time to read my first update for students on the wait list, which explains what you should (and should not do) from this point forward.

I will provide another update in a few weeks.

  • Hello Mr. Abbott,

    I am currently on the wait list for Stern undergraduate. In previous years, Stern was one of the first colleges filled from the wait list. However, Stern was not mentioned in your update and I was wondering if Stern is still accepting students from the wait list.

    Thank You
