    Did anyone get an email decision today? I know they usually send out on Tuesdays and Thursdays. I'm wondering if they're waiting for the first pool of accepted applicants to give they're decision on dec 4th before they let anyone else know. I called admissions they said all decisions should be sent out within two weeks. Crossing my fingers...

    Has anyone paid the $1000 eDeposit for housing? How long did it take for the payment to show up in your account activity on Bursar?

    Thanks for the great post! I was thinking of working while attending NYU. You mentioned it is definitely possible first semester but not second? What about the third semester? And overall how would you rate the workload per semester. Are there harder semesters and easier ones? I've been out of school for 6 years so I'm a little rusty with that.

    Rach27 I have been taking pre-reqs at NYU for two semesters now and will start the clinical phase in January. I have heard from many students that the workload is pretty heavy and it gets worse as you progress into the program. We will have at least five classes per semester, some with Lab and recitation on top of the lecture, so even from the get go five classes I think it's a lot to handle and manage work too. I have a friend who is in her first semester and has been working at a bar, but she doesn't think she will be able to keep working even a mindless job for much longer.
    Hope that helps.

    Yeah...has anyone received anything this past Tuesday & today, since those are the two days that everyone else has been notified.

    &tonia12....I haven't heard back and I applied the day prior to Oct. 1. I'm starting to just have the mindset that I didn't get in to brace myself.

    i dont think they sent out this tuesday and thursday because theres been no chatter at all on this website. i heard that they ask for a decision for the first round of accepted people by december 4th, so i bet you the rest will be finding out shortly after the 4th. This is just a guess. I was looking at the forum for last year, and people were finding out until the 21st of dec, so dont give up. but i agree, im going in not expecting anything and preparing for a back up plan.

    Hello my fellow rn's I think they will start sending out letters again next week. Tues.(the 4th) because those accepted have to reply by then. I can be wrong but let's not give up hope.

    Hi!
    Im a final semester student in the program and Ive been working throughout the entire program without a problem. You will have one day completely off during the week each semester, during which I worked a 9-5 day. I have a flexible job hours wise and they also let me come in for half a day each week bc we usually have a day thats pretty light. If you had a weekend or night job, it would probably be easier. I wouldnt recommend more than 15 hours a week, but it all depends on the person. Some semesters are def harder but the averages in the classes have pretty much been in the 90s the entire time. Good luck!!

    To those who are still waiting- I applied October 25th, was accepted November 20th, and was given until December 11th to pay my deposit (which I already did). Accepted students are given three weeks from the date that they are accepted to pay. Hope that helps! I bet another round of acceptances will go out next week .

    Hey jipe78! Question- How was it going through the process of starting the program? I'm waiting to get my next set of emails with instructions on orientation, etc. Was NYU pretty good with walking you through the process of registration, obtaining supplies, etc? Do we have to buy scrubs/stethoscopes/etc for clinicals before they start? Does NYU tell us exactly what to order? Is this all stuff that they go over at orientation? I'm one of those people who likes to plan details like this way ahead of time lol.

    And thank you for the info on working! I'm one of those people who absolutely has to work at least a day per week in order for this to work for me. Glad to hear it can be done!
