2008 - Interview Offers from NYU or Columbia yet?

Nope Bandar. I'm not surprised - as I said before I interview poorly.
I'm really excited for you though man!
I've been following this dream of yours for a while - since you're so active in these forums.

Congrats and a Half -
Can't wait to see what you make up there.
No, I did not have an interview!!! that´s why I´m asking if someone got in without one. I think that if the guy from Colombia got a call, and I didn´t I probably didn´t get in. I´m gonna call there tomorrow to see what happened with my application response! Congratulations to all the ones that got in!!!:)

Sorry to hear that K-MEE!

I'm starting to get annoyed. I still haven't heard a response. I'll call tomorrow and see what's going on...this seems rather long.
hi ada,

are you referring here to a columbia or nyu waitlist? if columbia, did it really say "high"? mine did not make use of that word, so perhaps i should not be as hopeful as i thought...

Hi again after awhile,

I got my letter last week and it says I am on the "high waitlist." maybe I can join you next year but even if I cannot, I really congratulate you.

I don't have a clue where I'll be in Fall (LA, NYC, home??) after graduation but my current motto is "whaterver is meant to happen it will happen." I am done with a stressful state of mind.

- good luck in every project you'll have in the future!

my columbia letter really did have that adjective in front of the word 'waitlist.' But please don't get less hopeful because of my message. I am pretty sure that most of the waitlisted people would retrieve their names from Columba's waitlist because they are already accepted to other good film schools. I am still on the list because this is the only school I've applied to. Until the first day of school your chance to get in will exist, seriously.
I called columbia today and they didn´t tell me anything, just to write an email. Can anyone tell me the postmarked date of the letter that received please? Just to see how long I´m going to wait! All the ones that are in the waitlist got an interview? Thanks:)

Hi Sharon,
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but, if I remember correctly, the 2 or 3 people who mentionned they were on the waitlist did had an interview. Also, I know the acceptance letters were sent around March 25th, but I don't know about the rejection/waitlist ones...
well, I have stopped thinking and I have accepted Columbia's offer. A better fin aid package and some good conversations with Eric Mendelsohn. NYU did offer me fin aid, so I guess that will go to someone else! And I hope that someone enjoys it! I do have to say that there is ALOT of private Fin Aid at NYU after the first year, so for those considering, just make sure to work hard!

congrats to all who made it, and for those who didnt, there is always next fall.
Thanks d_lefeb (i don´t know your name)! It´s good to know something at least! Mauricio do you live in Colombia or in USA? did you do you B.A. in Colombia? Because I´m from Venezuela, so your profile should be similar to mine, if you went to college there...
