I'm amazed to see that there is no thread for NYU Grad Film this year. So I decided to become to the first to do so. I'm anxiously keeping an eye on my Vimeo view reports. And I'd like to propose the purpose of this thread as a place to share every fellow NYU applicants received direct and indirect feedbacks from the admission, such as emails, calls or Vimeo Slideroom views. So far I got 1 view last year and two views on 1/31. I think I'm getting sickkkk.

I was looking for this thread! Thank you for making one! Will definitely be helpful as interview invitations should be around the corner!
This is my first year applying to NYU, though second round applying to film school.
Is this your first year applying at NYU? Did you apply to any other schools?

Finally some acknowledgement from another fellow NYU applicant. It's so weird that the number of active NYU applicants in this forum for this year dramatically dropped comparing to last year, to the point that there is only you responding to my call. LOL Thanks man.
Yes is this my first year applying to NYU and it's the only school I had the energy/time to apply to. From past application tracking post, I think most applicants get their decisions around 2/10. Im also curious to know how many slideroom views you got from your video submission, if you don't mind me asking.

Second round NYU applicant here. Been trying to spend the waiting period occupying my time with other things, hence my silence. You're right, last year majority of the interview notifications went out on the 10th. I expect more applicants to come out of the woodwork around, and after that date.

Maybe this is a stupid question, but how can I see the views I got on Slideroom? I will for sure share it with you, no problem at all. I just can't find it, haha.

hi guys,

Thanks Dean! For making that thread. (saved me from doing it myself. i hardly earned the rights to respond in this thread just right now )
I'm also anxiously waiting. Glad you guys are too ;) I asked Susan Carnival from the directory when interview invites would be sent out.(probably a very annoying question, to which she might or might not answer but I just wanted to do something (useless) about the waiting )February 10th would be sooner than I expected... Well I'm an international, so it might be a different date for me.

Anyhow, hang in there. Looking forward to any news (of course I will also share!)

I think its a feature for paid users. So if you are a plus user or above, go to "My Videos" in your account page and on the right hand side you should see a mini excel form called "my stats dashboard". Click that, that it gives your a comprehensive break-down of where and when your video is viewed. The last option is by URL source, which should show some Slideroom views.
I think even if you aren't a paid user, if you exclusively uploaded your video for the admission, you can still kinda guess that the views you have got are from NYU

What I am sure is that our materials are actively being reviewed through multiple rounds right now, hence the separated Vimeo views

Hi, do you know if all the views are through Silderoom? I got views from slideroom before but now I'm just getting views without knowing where it came from.

I think most likely they should come from Slideroom. When I got one view from Slideroom, I contacted Susan Carnival, the director and she confirm with me that it was made by of member of the admission team.

How's everyone's average time viewed? I'm concerned cause mine average viewing time is 70% of the video length.

I don’t think I have that in Vimeo plus, but maybe only they skipped the credits? Don’t over analyze ;)

Thank you for starting this thread! Anybody heard back about interviews yet?
I see one person in the google tracking sheet indicates that he or she already got an interview call

2 people indicate that now. Seems to have started yesterday.

Anyone know if interviews are compulsory for international students. Could they skip that and go straight to the decision?
