Waitlist Update

A message from the Director of Admissions regarding the status of the waitlist

May 14, 2018

Thank you, as always, for your patience with our waitlist process. We will continue to consider admitting students from the waitlist as space becomes available through August 1. However, we wanted to provide this update about the current status of our waitlist.

To date, we have admitted approximately 150 students off of the waitlist to begin at NYU in the fall. We will continue to monitor available space over the coming weeks, but we do not anticipate making any additional offers for fall admission to our waitlisted students in the near future.

In addition to fall admission, we have admitted an additional cohort of students to begin in the spring semester in Liberal Studies, and at NYU’s Steinhardt and Tandon schools. There is a possibility that we may admit additional students to these programs with a spring semester start in the coming weeks.

Regardless of your waitlist status or school/program of interest, we ask that you do not send any additional credentials, letters of recommendation, to our office. In our waitlist review process, we primarily consider the original application you presented, and additional materials will not increase your likelihood of admission.

We know that the uncertainty that comes with waitlist status can be stressful, so we will do our best to keep you updated on your status whenever possible. You can expect another update on the status of our waitlist in early June.
