  1. I was admitted to School 2 a few weeks ago. They informed me that they nominated me for a fellowship to the Graduate School, which only a few students throughout the school get (the process will take until the end of this month they said). They then paid for my plane ticket to fly out. This morning I was accepted to School 1 which is my top choice school. How do I go about this situation? I am interested in visiting School 2 because of the work being done and the faculty - and also to get practice in recruitment spaces. But also I don't want to occupy a space that could go to another student who is certain about the program. The recruitment weekend is not for another two weeks. How should I go about this since they already dished out money for my ticket ?
  2. I made it to the final rounds of interviews for my top choice programs. Afterwards they said they'd be contacting everyone in a couple of weeks. Two weeks later they contacted me again asking for my official transcript - can I assume that this means I'm basically in, or is it perhaps that they're asking for official transcripts before doing a final round with the committee?
  3. Who was the last NYU interview posted? Was it a late post or are they doing interviews this week?
  4. What made the interview so bad in your eyes? Do you think you actually did bad or retrospectively you were just really hard on yourself? Great ending though
  5. Do you have stories of having an interview which you thought didn’t go well but you still got accepted? Please share
  6. Recently I was invited for a finalist iinterview for a top program. While researching the adcom to prepare for the interview, I realized that one professor/committee members and I's research had a lot of interesting intersections thematically (Lets call them Professor X). I didn't list them on my SoP as a POI because I didn't know at the time. During the interview, I bombed the faculty fit part, because they informed me that one of the POI's I listed and wanted to work with will not be taking students anymore (when I reached out months prior they said they did...I don't know what happened) and didnt know how to navigate that on the spot and just froze up. In my post interview email to the committee member/Professor X, I had briefly said something like "If admitted, I'd very much like to continue these discussions and work with you as I see great overlap" and they responded "you should have said this during the interview" I know I messed up , my nerves and the faculty fit curveball made me freeze up. It's my own fault. But did my comment about potentially working together make me look bad or come off as agitating or time inappropriate?
