I haven't seen much input on this forum on what you guys think about NYU. I've noticed that quite a few of us have applied there but there hasn't been much discussion.

I applied to NYU on a whim without being able to do any research on the program itself.

Can anyone give me any input on the school, city, program?

NYU has a strong clinical msw program. They have great internship opportunities, for clinical purposes even better than columbia internships. There is an admitted students day this thursday where you can go to the school and learn more about it. I applied because my advisor told me that it would be a good match school for me, and I live a half hour away so it would be an easy commute.

The location of NYU is great! It is right in the village. Theres great shopping, restaurants, and right next to Silver School building there is a nice park, which are nice to come by in NYC. It is also a safe area.

I was admitted as well, but don't know if I'll be attending because of the price tag. Do any students in the 2 year MSW program work part time jobs?

I am waiting on NYU, I have been told the decision is coming "this week" for 3 weeks.

I intend on working part time while in school. In NYC I have no idea how else people would afford to live, other than taking out an extra 30 grand in living expense loans. I currently work full time and wait tables at night, I will be leaving the full time job and continuing to serve 3-4 shifts a week.

I'm waiting for NYU also! I'm beginning to lose hope. I submitted on February 6th and it was complete as of February 16th. I also hear great things about their program especially the great clinical/internship opportunities. arcoventry, when did you submit your application?

I submitted 12/22, but then they lost my transcript and my application was updated with "Application complete as of 2/14". Right now my application says "Your application is complete and sent to the Faculty Review Committee for review." :( I had to send in my $250 to Hunter, I was even late for the deadline holding out hope I'd hear from NYU but I don't want to risk not being able to go to either.

NYU sent out their first letters of admission this past week. Once you receive the letter they give you two weeks to either accept or decline. After those two weeks I believe another wave of acceptance letters will be sent out depending how many people don't accept their offers of admission. A friend of mine in the program says that is how they did it his year and the year after him (2011 and 2010).

One thing I don't like is how little time they give you to respond to their acceptance offer, I still wont hear from other schools in the time frame. But I guess it is NYU so they can do these kinds of things.

Katy8483,

Hunter gave me 2 weeks as well. I asked for an extension and by the time they replied to me I was begging for forgiveness that it was late. $250 is a lot to prospective graduate students. If I get into NYU I'll lose that, not to mention the other schools we are waiting on!

What!? So basically those who got accepted already found out and now the others are going to compete for the spaces available? Kind of like a wait-list, but not?

arcoventry - I know! UPENN gave me until April 15th to decide which I thought was good because it gave me over two months from hearing from them to hear from other schools before I had to pay them any money. NYU is $200 which is a lot of money to just throw away basically if you decide to attend another school. I sent an email to NYU asking if extensions are possible but have yet to hear back.

rjose - I mean dont take my word as written in stone, that is just what someone in the program told me, and when I got my acceptance on Thursday, so did my friend and we applied over a month apart, so it lined up with what I had heard previously

Does anyone know how many students are accepted into the NYU MSW program for the Fall 2012 ? Also, what are they looking for in students that get them accepted into the program?

Yeah I was getting worried too Megan because a lot of folks were receiving decisions way before, but hang in there since obviously they are not done accepting folks.

$17,000 is a LOT, LOT, LOT of money! Congrats! Are you going to NYU vmpancucci?

Congrats to everyone who was accepted. I am still waiting on a decision...3 months exactly. I am almost set on going to Hunter, but I can't help daydreaming about getting some huge grant from NYU and going there instead x)

I don't think I'll be going to NYU. I just cannot justify the 60k + loans I would have to take out. I was hoping they would offer me more money :( I really love New York and was hoping I would venture on a new experience, but I also want to be financially responsible.

Good luck to all those who haven't heard yet, and congrats to all those who got in and are going!
