ASK NYU

anonymous asked:

My nyu email address hasn’t come through (I’ve been accepted ed1) but everyone on the Facebook group says theirs came like two weeks ago. Are they usually emailed out to our regular email accounts? And who do you think I should contact about this - and honestly who should I contact about any questions I have, because I figured the admissions office wouldn’t be right now that I’ve been admitted…help!!!

x: They’re usually e-mailed to your regular email accounts, yes. But if it’s not there and you’re concerned, contact ITS. Otherwise, your area admissions counselor will most certainly help you with any questions you have! Please see this page.

anonymous asked:

I was just on Albert today (I’ve recently been admitted) and on my checklist of stuff the admissions office needs to see, it says final high school transcript. Basically, I graduated last year and I’m currently on a gap year, so the transcript my school sent them is my final transcript bc I’ve left school and it showed all my final grades. It also has the name of my school completely wrong; it thinks I attended this other high school which is like down the road from my actual one but yeah, help?

x: Just get in touch with an admissions counselor and it’ll get resolved! You can do so via this page.

anonymous asked:

How do I apply to be a Summer RA? I’m a freshman now, am I eligible?

q: yes, you are eligible! there may be information online at a later date, but get in touch with your RHRM, or residence hall resource manager, let them know you’re interested, and ask if they have any available information. they’ll be able to keep you updated, especially since the dates of the info sessions are wont to vary.

Is there a way to pick a certain residence hall and even a certain room number if you get accepted ed?

anounymous asked:

If I apply ed to nyu tisch and get in does that mean that I would find out who my roommate is and be able to move in earlier than the regular admission students?

q: nope! if you’re accepted ED, your housing process will be the same as everyone else’s: you’ll have the option of applying to explorations floors, rank your top residence hall choices, and have a room and roommate assigned to you all at the same time. your move-in day will be the same as well, and you’ll pick time slots at the same time as everyone else too.

anonymous asked:

I just want to take a few classes at tisch like screenwriting, acting because I want to minor in screenwriting. Do I still have to create a portfolio for tisch and if so what would it include? Screenplays and videos I’ve made??

q: tisch actually doesn’t have a screenwriting department! instead, it’s home to nyu’s dramatic writing department, which takes a multi-medium approach to dramatic writing, instead of a specific one like screenwriting or playwriting. sadly, they don’t offer a minor, but you can minor in dramatic literature through CAS. for the dramatic lit minor, no portfolio is required.

if you’re more interested in the classes themselves than having an actual minor on your transcript—or even if you minor in dramatic lit and have some space left—i’d suggest checking out tisch’s open arts courses. they’re open to anyone, don’t require a portfolio, and are really fantastic courses! while i was at nyu, i took both an introduction to acting shakespeare and fundamentals of developing the screenplay and had a blast in both. the latter was particularly great, so if you’re interested, i’d definitely suggest checking it out!

anonymous asked:

I’m currently studying in state at Indiana university because I can’t afford nyu’s tuition! I really wanted to take some film classes at tisch so do you think I could study abroad at nyu for a year? instead of an exotic place like Australia, I’d rather be absorbing as much as I can from one of the best film schools!

q: i definitely feel that! you can check out tisch’s special programs for visiting students website for information on studying at tisch for the fall or spring semester, as well as a list of required and elective courses for doing so. they have information on doing a fall, spring, or summer semester at tisch, and i know you’re interested in doing a year, so i’d definitely look into the opportunities listed and potentially reach out to the program director(s) to see if those courses of study can be extended or modified to fit what you’re looking for.

tisch also has a lot of abroad sites in itself where you’ll get an education and coursework that’s the same calibre as at the washington square campus, so you also have the opportunity to, if you want, get the best of both study abroad worlds! since you’re interested in a year, you can always mix and match too if it’s within your means: one semester in nyc and one at one of tisch’s abroad sites.

anonymous asked:

Does mission work in other countries look really good on applications? (i want to major in journalism)

q: it certainly can’t hurt your chances! there are a lot of organizations at nyu that really emphasize service work, and to see that potential for engagement, as well as an active interest in community, is always impressive.

because nyu is very much a global network university, it also places a lot of value in its students being global citizens. you by no means need service work or international travel or international service work to get in, but that kind of interest and engagement in an applicant is well aligned with its interests.

anonymous asked:

HI, I’m sure you get this all the time, but do you know if mid year reports could significantly change your chances into getting in to NYU. I know that you guys do not take part in the admissions process but when you applied did you notice anything? (Im sorry for the longwinded question)

q: no worries at all! unfortunately, i can’t say anything with much certainty when it comes to mid-year reports affecting admissions. i’ve never heard of anyone getting their offer rescinded, but i’ve also never known anyone who totally dropped the ball their senior year. (no d’s or f’s, and one or two, if any, c’s.)

i had a b and a b- on my midyear report that stayed through the end-of-the-year report, and had no trouble.

anonymous asked:

if i go back to new york before break is over will i be able to use my meal plan? im still confused how that works because it says i have 19 swipes right now.

x: I think that’s just an error, as all meal swipes are forfeited at the end of every semester. Though I suppose you can try?

anonymous asked:

12) what metro card type is best? [ok that’s everything sorry!]

x: If you don’t need to take the subway everyday, loading up your metrocard with $20 to $50 for the month would suffice. If you wind up getting an internship or work study job that requires extensive daily travel, an unlimited metrocard would be for the best!

q: if you end up not getting an unlimited metrocard, it’s highly recommended that you don’t load it up with more than $20. they’re incredibly easy to lose—i have like four or five floating around various bags for myself, for example—or forget somewhere, not to mention potentially getting stolen. $20 or less is much easier to get over losing than $50.
