Fellow MFA/MBA dual degree applicants, Stern just sent out their interview invitation as well!

Did any non-MBA applicants (just regular Grad Film MFA) receive invites yet? Haven't seen anything on this site—and a friend applying confirmed they haven't received anything—but I know Feb 8 was the notification date from last year... Obviously it's a small pool so maybe I'm just being optimistic. Regardless, good luck to everyone going in for one!

Yeah I do wonder if the MBA and MFA applicants are "combined" into the same applicant pool? Since the class size is the same regardless I suppose they are....

So, I applied to the MBA/MFA. I know someone already got their invite, but I'm keeping my hopes up. The nerve may be killing me but I need to keep the bad thoughts out! I hope this week we all get the email invite.

I don't think I got an interview from Columbia. Tisch is the only other school I applied. this is torture. I've been checking my vimeo status and only got 2 views from slideroom and they never even finished watching it. I am totally doomed.

They didn't finished mine, either. :(

I remember on the NYU app they said to basically ignore vimeo views, so I'd say try not to put too much weight into that!

Last year they sent all the interviews out on the same day at the same time. I think they might be doing it differently this year with breaking the Dual degree up from us (MFA only) and reaching out to them earlier (they had a separate app then us on Slide room so it's likely). It definitely has to be this week because interviews are usually the end of the month of February to early March and notifications of acceptance are middle March.

I applied last year for the first time and was waitlisted after my interview- but a spot didn't open up. I'd find it very surprising if I didn't get an interview this year when I would have been a student if a spot opened up last year (but honestly anything is possible). Good luck to everyone!

and was waitlisted after my interview
Just curious, when you say "after interview" – were you notified of being waitlisted immediately after the interview, or on the official decision date? I was always unclear from the application tracker too – if "after interview" meant you were immediately told what your status was, or in March.
