NYU: Is early decision right for me?

Posted by heo

ARE YOU READY?

Hi ,

NYU’s first application deadline, Early Decision I, is just around the corner (Sunday, November 1). If NYU is your top choice, we encourage you to apply early decision. You may have some lingering questions, and we hope the information below will help you make the best decision.

Why should I apply early decision? If you’re sure NYU is the school for you, submitting your application for early decision can help shorten the college search process and reduce admissions stress. It’s also a great way to let our admissions committee know that NYU is your first choice. For some additional insight, Michelle (CAS ’23) talks about why she applied early decision and what she wants other students to know on Meet NYU.

When is the early decision deadline? The deadline to apply Early Decision I to NYU is Sunday, November 1.

What if I’m not ready by November 1? We also offer two other decision plans if you need a bit more time to decide or to present your best case for admission. Our Early Decision II deadline is January 1, and our Regular Decision deadline is January 5, with notification dates of February 15 and April 1.

What about financial aid? Apply for financial aid—regardless of whether you are interested in need or merit-based aid—if you want to be considered for scholarships. And remember, if comparing financial aid packages is an important factor in your decision to enroll, applying Regular Decision may be better for you. Regular Decision gives you the ability to indicate that NYU is your top choice on your application while retaining the flexibility to compare your financial aid packages from other schools.

Medic Meets – Meet Directors of Medical School Admissions

Posted by heo

We are delighted to launch Medic Meets

As we are all getting used to the “new normal” and the variety of international education webinars we wanted to offer students, parents and higher education counsellors an opportunity rarely available in previous years. Medic Meets gives you and your students the opportunity to ask questions to directors of medical/dental admissions at some of Europe’s best medical schools.

We are acutely aware Zoom fatigue is setting in so this is not your usual PowerPoint presentation and Q&A session. Medic Meets will involve a live conversation with decision makers and current medical students. The first two Medic Meets sessions introduces The University of Nicosia in Cyprus and the world-famous Charles University First Faculty of Medicine in Prague.

Valia Tsiakala from Cyprus will be talking with us about the opportunities at UNIC, their first-class academic facilities and global clinical placements. Vice-Dean Eitan Brizman will be answering questions about securing a seat and studying at Charles University First Faculty of Medicine. He will be joined by Taranpreet, a fifth-year student from the United Kingdom.

These are two of Europe’s most popular and prestigious medical schools. These webinars take place at 1pm UK time on Thursday 29th October and Tuesday 3rd November and are 100% free to attend
