I wonder if they got less applicants because the application was more arduous and required us to shoot a film.

NYU: Notification of Decision

Notification of an admission decision cannot be made until all required supporting materials have been received and a full assessment of a candidate has been rendered by the departmental admission committee. A preliminary notification informing the candidate of his or her successful audition/interview may be sent directly by the Graduate Acting program, the Department of Dance, or the Department of Design for Stage and Film. However, a formal offer of admission can only be issued by the Office of Graduate Admissions.

It's a two-step process for NYU between Department & Office of Graduate Admissions, whereas AFI has an Admissions Committee only.
So I assume between virtual review of application, and all other Covid delays, it's more difficult for the NYU parts to come to a decision as a whole (at least this is how i justify us here wondering if any invitations have actually been sent out today)

There actually wasn’t a requirement to shoot a film. I submitted 10 pictures. I’m also pretty sure they got much more applications because a contact at another film school (to go unnamed) informed me they got 30% more. My guess is that may have something to do with it also.

Yup. I submitted 7 photos, since I haven’t shot a film yet. I think people have really had time to contemplate their futures during COVID, and thus, film schools are seeking huge increases in the number of applicants. Really hope notifications don’t drag out till March, but it seems like that is very possible!

I meant for AFI :) they provided a prompt for applicants to shoot a film

How's everyone preparing? Tips/ question leads? Anything at all that one should keep in mind?
I am unsure what to expect from the interview, I have found that most people say you can't really prepare for it outside of the basic expected questions about your materials, why NYU etc. Has anyone on here applied before and made the interview? I'd love to know more myself as even digging in some of the old forums here it seems people don't talk more in detail about the interview. I am just going to look over my submitted materials and plan to be myself, regarding how I will prepare - so maybe some films and extra exercise to help with the anxiety ha ha. I am really surprised we have not seen more people posting they got interviews, but I am starting to suspect that this year things just may be super delayed with covid. Also have seen from previous years people getting notified of interview requests later into February, so hoping the best for everyone!

I want to ask if anybody received any interview requests today, but something tells me nobody received any

Does anyone know if there’s a way to check your NYU application status?
