    I got in too! Is there a fb page or anything so we can all "meet"?

    I've looked for an fb group, but I don't think one's been made for Spring 2013 yet. If anyone wants to make a group, and share it with the rest of us that'd be awesome. I think a fb group would be better than a page, b/c we can post in groups and share links/whatever?

    I can make one when I get home in a bit that would be helpful to have! Anyone else a little overwhelmed with wondering how you're going to pay for tuition and where to live? I am... But my excitement and happiness is def stronger!!!

    While I have not been accepted yet (fingers crossed!!), I have lived in the city for three years as a grad student. I would be happy to give anyone advice on where to live, etc. I'm especially familiar with Brooklyn- there are a ton of neighborhoods that are SUPER convenient to NYU and are significantly cheaper. If I can be of any help let me know!

    When you log in, does it say "accepted" anywhere under Application Status?

    It says "admissions offer" .

    Out of curiosity, do they also send denial letters? Or do students who aren't accepted just not get an admissions offer (i.e. no status update)? Or are denials sent out last in December? This system of sending out acceptances in batches is new to me.

    Also, FYI to all. I just got of the phone with a super helpful admissions rep- she said that they don't have a timeline for releasing regular decision applicant's admissions offers. She said the storm really set them back and that they were still going through priority applicants applications at this time. She also said the latest decisions would go out is mid-December.

    They send the first few batches of admission offers first. Then they send their obvious admission denials pretty soon after.

    Everyone is placed into tiered levels of: highly qualified, qualified, semi-qualified (some of these are waitlisted), reject.

    Highly qualified applicants who applied for the regular deadline will usually get an admission decision/offer before semi-qualified people who applied for the priority earlier deadline also..... This is because the college will wait for the highly qualified or qualified admits to reject their offers, so they can send out more offers to the next tier of applicants.

    Good luck!!

    p.s. I hope this doesn't offend anyone, just wanted to give you a behind the scenes look at how admissions really works.
