Wait List Update #1

Now that May 1 has passed, it appears that while we met our enrollment goal for the Class of 2021, we do have some capacity to accommodate additional offers of admission, with the understanding that not every student who has confirmed their intent to enroll thus far will actually join us this fall.

As a result, we will move forward with extending roughly 325 new offers of admission sometime on or after May 10. Students offered admission (and financial aid if applicable) will have 72 hours to respond to their offer of admission.

A few notes:

We will not have any space available at either NYU Abu Dhabi or NYU Shanghai. Our campuses there are entirely full and no additional offers of admission will be extended.

Similarly, we will not have any space in our School of Professional Studies or Global Liberal Studies Program. Both of those programs are now full as well.

Finally and most importantly, please do not send us any additional recommendations, emails, updates, or other materials regarding your space on the wait list. At this time, we can no longer consider any new information whatsoever. We have all the information we need to make our final selections. I will provide another update later this month. Thanks in advance for your patience.

  • When you say the School of Professional Studies is completely full does that mean for external transfers too?

  • In response to the questions above, roughly 15% of our applicant pool of more than 67,000 were offered spaces on our wait list. By May 1, roughly half of that 15% responded that they would like to remain on our wait list.

    The update above was with regard to first-year candidates for admission only. We still have plenty of offers of admission to extend for those students who have applied for transfer admission. We aim to have the vast majority of transfer admission decisions made by May 16 or very soon after.

    • The excitement keeps building! Thank you for the update, as an external transfer hopeful I will be patiently waiting for May 16th 🙂

  • Hi. Will the waitlist still be need-aware for international students? And on Albert there is a major under admission decision, is that the major we are currently waitlisted to? Thanks for the updates.

  • Hi, could you please tell me if the admission from waitlist is done in waves? I’ve seen people getting “continued interest” emails, while some other people like myself haven’t gotten anything yet, so I’m bit stressed out here. Hope you can understand 🙂

  • Mr. Abbott, thank you for the update.
    I received an e-mail from your office today about my status on the waitlist.
    The e-mail provided a link for another response form confirming I would accept an offer given sufficient aid or if I would like to remove myself from the waitlist. Does this e-mail confirm that I have been offered admission to NYU, or is it still only a possibility?

    Thank you!
    I can’t wait to attend NYU next year.

  • Please provide more info, approximately what is the number of students that will be approved for the wait-list?

  • Is there a breakdown of how many are on each schools Waitlist? Tisch, for example?

  • I read that some people received interest emails already. So, have all the interest emails for all the seats have been sent already?

  • Thank you very much for this informative post! I received an interest email from CAS on Monday. I answered that I would like to attend NYU if offered with a sufficient financial aid package. As I should finalize my admission to the another school soon I was wondering when I will find out more about my acceptance and financial aid. Thank you in advance!

  • What is the latest date we will find out if admitted so we can plan other options?

  • Hi, I’ve been checking my portal but it says I have no application status and and my waitlisted letter has disappeared, does this mean I’m no longer on the waitlist? I know I definitely sent in a response saying I would like to remain on the waitlist.

  • Hello,

    Is there a waitlist for transfer applicants? Would they be notified if placed on a waitlist? Today is the 17th of May. When is the last admission decision going to be sent out?

    Thanks!

  • Is there a waitlist for transfer applicants? Would they be notified if placed on a waitlist? Today is the 18th of May. When is the last admission decision going to be sent out?

  • Have the decisions been sent out yet? I haven’t seen another blog update nor have I received any e-mails. Any information would be extraordinarily helpful! Thank you!

  • Undoubtedly, NYU is always my top option to fulfill my academic aspiration, and I have submitted the response form earlier.

    As a natural science enthusiast and hopefully a future transportation industry worker, I envision my four years at your university as an inspiring launch pad, if admitted. From here I can explore my interests from different angles, and engage with top researchers and professionals in multiple fields. At the same time, I will have plentiful opportunities to collaborate with classmates on projects and outside-the-classroom discussions which can stimulate and influence my opinion in unknown ways. I would like to first challenge myself by taking advantage of your Environmental Studies Program, including Politics, Policy, and the Global Environment, Environmental Economics, and Global Environmental Problems. With the common commitment to examine the components of the model—consciousness of self, collaboration, common purpose, controversy with civility, and citizenship, I, together with the prospective leaders all around the nation, who have been drawn by the enchanting programs of New York University, will develop the missions and plans to implement environment science projects, and make a difference in the world.

    Sincerely, I pray for your consideration upon my application, hopefully anticipating good news from you.

  • Hello Mr. Abbott,

    It is very exiting to read that there is still a chance to become part of the NYU family. Do you know if there is still chance to get into Stern School of Business or Gallatin School? Please keep us updated!
