NYU musical theatre writing just called me to find out how I'm doing. They also told me that Dramatic Writing reached out to them. My final interview is tomorrow for musical theatre.

Basically which program I would be more interested in as well who would give me the most money.

So, if I get accepted to both I would have to choose.
YAY!

Nope not a peep ever haha (applied as TV/Film writer but also have theatre background. Accepted by UCLA and USC too) so I guess is not good news?!

I just called and they told me that no decisions have been made yet for the graduate students as of now

No decisions? What are they waiting for? Sigh.
Did they give any indication about how long it might take?
Thanks for calling them btw!

She was very nice but I called to check on the status of it but she just said she has no clue when they will be done. And also not everyone will have an interview.

I see NYU decided to get real cute and throw a little shade.

Just spoke to Admissions...

Got a very detailed break down..

1. THEY ARE VERY LATE EXTREMELY

So... they got 246 applications... 76 get passed on to read further. From that 76 they choose 24 who got in and 20 waitlisted. The rest won't get in. The department head will be letting admissions know on Monday who got in and who got waitlisted.

We should start hearing by Wednesday the earliest from admissions.
 
Admitted to dramatic writing. Got an email from the Chair asking for a Skype call. I'm at a place with bad internet, so he just told me of the acceptance via email.

I've been a little late, but I've also been accepted to dramatic writing. Got a phone call from the chair a few days ago and they said they'd be sending more info in the mail.

Spill the tea @essie (also congrats!!!)
Ahhh I just saw this so all my info is basically useless at this point -- but thank you icygee!! I received a call from dept chair and, as mentioned previously, we should get a letter w/ more details (including stipends and whatnot) soonish.

Idk how much this could effect the timeliness of the decisions, but there's a bad blizzard in NYC -- could potentially be slowing down updates from NYU?
it's 51 degrees in NYC....or do you mean there is one coming up?!?!
