I got that email too! Didn't notice the misspelling until now though. Weird!

[quote="gloriouscause"][quote="Yeshia90"][quote="forthewin"][quote="brogoc"]Anyone going to the admitted student event in LA with Dean R? I typed the location address into google maps and it appears to be a fancy house in Bel Air. That's intimidating. Maybe it's the home of a successful NYU alum.[/quote]

I'm going! So what is the consensus on what to wear? I'm guessing it would be something close to business attire?[/quote]

Nah. You're going to be in the village, so skinny jeans, a v-neck, and keffiyah should be sufficient.[/quote]

I'm going business casual (button down shirt no tie). Although skinny jeans are tempting...[/quote]

Ugh I got sick today, so I'm not going to the event. Super pissed about this because I was really looking forward to meeting other admitted students :( let me know how it was after!

They gave us the hard sell and I have to say I found it pretty convincing. NYU is my top choice now, though my decision would be even easier if they would send some scholly money my way.

('Fancy house' turned out to be an understatement - our host is a regular on the Forbes 400. Wow.)

The house was incredible. The guesthouse was as big as a normal house

Any details? What was so convincing about it for instance. Just curious!

I think this might have been addressed before, but does depositing at NYU hold you to the same standard as an ED contract with regard to you needing to withdraw from other schools, or else there's going to be some trouble, buddy? A lot of schools don't even consider waitlists until mid to late May, which is after the NYU deposit deadline.

I'm not 100% sure of this but I believe you are required to withdraw from schools you have been accepted at but are allowed to remain on waitlists.

Ah, that makes sense, thanks. NYU's probably my first choice anyways, but I noticed that a lot of people who got off of waitlists at the 11th hour from top 10 schools last cycle got a decent amount of money, for whatever reason.

Dean R discussed the school's investment in student services, the variety of opportunities for clinical and PI work, and recent lateral faculty hires from CLS and HLS. Local alums in attendance were friendly and were happy to discuss their experiences. The admitted students were smart and interesting. I left with the impression that NYU would be an exciting place to spend the next few years.

*jealous*

I missed my regional event (SF). Did anyone go to that one? Was it equally impressive?

Just RSVP'd for Late March. That was a lot of boxes to check.

I'll be going to the March 1st-2nd ASW, and really look forward to meeting everyone! A couple of questions though: Where are people staying? Also, when are people flying in? Wednesday? Thursday morning?

I really want to go to ASW. How much did you guys end up spending on flights/hotel?

+1. If I have a reason to be in MH at all, of course.

I'm flying in Thursday morning and I'm lucky enough to have a cousin who lives pretty close by.

Flying in Wednesday. Figure either I get to be in MH (fingers crossed!) or I get a day to explore NYC. Got a good hotel deal via Expedia for a hotel near Penn Station. Looks like that location would be convenient to both NYU and Columbia.

Ok cool so there isn't a hotel that NYU recommends, right?

Same question here. I'm going for the early March CLS/NYU ASWs as well. I'm having a bit of trouble finding reasonably priced accommodations in the area (first taste of life in NYC...), so I'd be very grateful for any recommendations.

I know it's not for everyone, but have you folks considered hostelling it? I'm all manner of broke, so if I go it'll probably be that route.

I'll also probably take a bus in.

NYU has a list of hotels, some of which offer discounts. http://www.nyu.edu/about/visitor-inform ... otels.html

I went on all the hotel search websites-- hotline, kayak, expedia, orbitz, hotels.com-- and found a hotel that way. Expedia does "X hours only!!" type deals, which I recommend trying to get. The available deals change a lot so you just have to keep an eye out. That puts hotel rates at about 90-100 per night, instead of 150+

CLS granted me a subsidy, so I'll be spending very little on airfare. And, I'll be staying with current students.
