NYU Tisch Dramatic Writing Interviews

not me, not yet. Now I'm freaking out a little. Had an interview....thought I could be in the running. Congrats Miriam May!
 
Just got off the phone with the terse receptionist at the DW dept. She said that letters are being sent out this week and next. I asked her if I hadn't received a phone interview does that count me out from being accepted? She would only say, "Wait for the letter".

I don't know what the big secret is with this interview/no interview stuff. If everyone who's accepted has a phone interview just say so. If not, say so. I hate you, NYU Tisch Rita and Burton Goldberg Dramatic Writing Department, because you hate me.

Call me a pessimist but I find it highly unlikely that those of us who didn't get a phone interview and didn't get called with notification of acceptance today will get a letter in the mail telling us we got in. I can be that harsh because I am among the rejects...

No call today, but I'm still thinking about the snoopy-dance I'll have when they do. ;)
If/when folks do call the department, I would keep it nice. Those guys are probably inundated with calls. Not worth the hating. You never know. I had a friend who talked his way off the "wait list" for his Columbia MBA, and got in. keeping hope alive!

Hey Everybody. I'm brand new here. So I got waitlisted for Tisch Dramatic Writing Graduate School. Anybody know the chances of getting in? And did anybody else get waitlisted?

I got an email today to log in to my online Tisch account. There there was a letter stating that I got waitlisted and needed to send an email to remain on the waitlist.

I think some people may be able to check their acceptance status if they applied via an online account.

Oh yes. WAIT LIST! The drama continues...The fat lady is not even warming-up in my mind. I love this. Wondering how many people are on this lovely list. Betting it is all part of the master plan of DRAMATIC WRITING. Can we put "waitlisted" in the dictionary as a verb? passive, ugh. Put together a list and watch the drama continue. Cool. I am still keeping the faith, my peeps.
 
They are printing the letters right now.

By my estimation they'll have the envelopes stuffed tomorrow, addressed friday, stamped on tuesday (after a day of rest monday), and picked up by the postal service by wednesday.

And the plot thickens:
This is my first post here, but I thought you might want to hear about my call to the admissions people. I specified that I was a Dramatic Writing Graduate applicant, and asked if it was a negative that I had not yet heard.
I was told that letters didn't start getting sent out until last Thursday, and "not to worry about it just yet."
Is there hope? I guess we'll find out. I'll keep you posted.

Yes, I phoned today as well. I wanted to make sure they had received my email accepting my "wait list status". I was told also that it would be as late as May for any offers were made to folks on the wait list. So, here I am waiting. On the wait list.:)

Anyone receive anything in the mail from NYU? I talked to them on Tuesday and they said they sent stuff out LAST WEEK. I live in Brooklyn and haven't received anything.

(I was not interviewed or waitlisted)
