Are there other NYU people out there who have secured a bunch of pre-EIW spots in NY (without some sort of special connection)? I'm fortunate to be in a good situation, not worried about striking out at EIW, but wondering whether these firms are being forthright with me and are actually telling all NYU students the same thing or whether my stats/resume just don't quite have the "wow" factor to get pre-EIW slots.
NYU here. Have a V5 offer, so can say not all of them "follow NYU's guidelines". But you said you have some interviews already, so you know that already. I imagine some firms are legit waiting, but a lot aren't. I'm around top 10%, but I have no idea if that had anything to do with them moving quick.
Did you give your transcript to them in advance of the screener?
Also, do we know what the top 10% cutoff for NYU is, more or less?
