2008 - Interview Offers from NYU or Columbia yet?


Well-Known Member
Hey Hey!
Has anyone hear gotten emails or phones from NYU or Columbia yet about interviews?

Just scared and wondering.


I just joined this website, so I don't know about any of the other members, but I applied to the graduate film production program at NYU and haven't heard anything about an interview yet. From reading some of the posts from last year I think they started contacting candidates in early Feb (for interviews in mid Feb to early March)- so, yeah, I'm scared and wondering too.
Wish you the best of luck though, calliergrl,
I called NYU today. They said that letters should be coming out for interviews early next week. We could recieve phone calls as well.
Spoke to the people at NYU yesterday. They are going to begin calling people on Monday for interviews, and will do so for the next two weeks after that.

I believe everyone who receives an interview will get a phone call.
I called NYU myself this morning. They are still working on their list of potential interviewees, and will begin calling in about a week and a half. I gave my name and received a curt good-bye. Made me feel like I was to expect doom. :(

Don't worry, yaar.
Did you speak to Susan Carvinal? Or some student rep? Hopefully, it was a student rep. They don't know a thing.

I believe it was susan, but not sure. They said they were going to transfer me to the coordinator's office. I don't know susan from suzette so hopefully things are cool.
Does anyone know what percentage of people get an interview at Columbia or NYU of those that apply. Do they accept 50% of the people that get interviews. Like everyone else on this board I'm pretty nervous about the upcoming weeks.
Susan Carnvial is the woman who send our materials in to. She's apart of the admissions committee. I guess, she would be the coordinator of the film admissions programs. Perhaps, a bunch of people have been calling her and she may be a little irritated.
Also, I was told that actual interviews begin 2 weeks from today and go on thru March. Phone calls should be happening this and next week. But then again, they've telling us different stories.

thanks for the reply, and good luck. I assume your west coast based on the name. I'm east coast, so it should be interesting to see when and if they contact us. I will definitely stay on this board and post updates. I just hope I have updates to post.
100? I mean I know some of the ridiculous numbers quotes as to how many apps they actually receive (800, 450, etc.), but I really wonder what percentage 100 is?
