    Hi all!

    @HBG asked for a dedicated Tisch thread, so here goes.

    For those who did not see my earlier posts, Susan Carnival told me last Thursday that invites for grad film applicants will go out over the next two weeks. So we should expect emails/calls the weeks of Feb. 13 and Feb.20. I'm attaching a screenshot of her email.

    I know the Google track sheet shows some people received invites earlier, but that's what she told me. Also, @HBG called the admissions office yesterday and was told they started calling people this week. So I guess we have to be patient.

    Good luck to everyone. Fingers crossed!

    I have no idea, sorry Christopher. It felt awkward to ask about something I hadn't applied to. Now that you mention it though, how about you email/call Susan to ask and update us here? Just a passing thought.

    Thank you for your information! That really helps a lot.
    I noticed that my portfolio on Youtube has 2 hits from NewYork through slideroom. One is in Jan 9th, one is in Feb 5th. Both of them are viewed 100%. I think it's from the committee of NYU. I hope it's a good sign, but I still not get my interview after 10 days. It's really freaking me out.

    According to Peter from the graduate admissions he said... the applications are currently being reviewed and everyone should know by March or April 15th at the latest. Who is Susan does she only work in film?

    I checked mine too. I uploaded on Vimeo so I can't see how long they've been viewed but I have 4 views on my submission! I felt that was much lesser than my other submissions. SAIC viewed my submission to them 16times and I believe Columbia works more on DVDs, my online submission was viewed once. I was worried the 4 meant they weren't interested.

    @Christopher Gooley, Susan Carnival is the Coordinator of Admissions and Recruitment at Tisch. So no, she doesn't only work in film. If you read the email I attached to the first message in this thread, you'll notice she was responding to my inquiry about interview notifications. From the looks of it, it seems Peter was talking about final admission decisions.

    That's odd. If you haven't already done so, try emailing tisch.gradadmissions@nyu.edu

    Hi there!

    I called Tisch today to check on the status of interview notifications for grad film applicants. I was told they were still sending them out and will continue to do so until the end of this week, which is consistent with what Susan Carnival had already told me (scroll up to the first message in this thread to read Susan's email).

    The interviews are expected to take place starting mid-March. Those who did not make the first cut will be notified via email the first week of March. Everyone should know where they stand no later than the first week of April.

    I hope this helps.

    @Chris K I just want to inform that my interview with Tisch is scheduled on March 3th and according to the tracking doc there are people who have their interviews even tomorrow. Good luck to all of us!

    I've seen the Google doc. But I also know what Susan Carnival and Alicia from the Graduate Film division, whom I spoke to today, told me. Both accounts contradict what's in the tracking doc.

    I'd rather believe the official word.

    I wish they just sent out the interview invitations to the applicants on the same day, like Columbia. This has me on edge!
