I’m going to have to ask you to direct your attention away from your potentially worn-down-from-constant-nibbling fingernails. Are you sitting? Good. I have some news. For everyone who sent in all of their materials for Fall 2012 by the freshman deadline of February 1st: the letters are beginning to get sent out.
Congratulations to everyone who may have already received good news! I really enjoyed reviewing your work and was entertained by your candid Artist Statements and Parsons Challenges. Toilet paper was a hot topic this year! And plenty of you made it work.
If you’ve recently completed your application (and please check to see if we’ve received your materials online), please know that the Admission Office is in overdrive and sending out decision letters twice a week. We’re reviewing applications in the order that they become complete, so it’s only a matter of time at this point. Try not to work yourself into a frenzy; the mail won’t come quicker if you’re maniacally staring out the window. Waiting is probably the hardest part, but try to push it from your mind.
Now time for some practical information:
The aid award letters actually come separately from the admission package. Domestic students should submit the FAFSA and apply for aid by the end of March. You’ll be notified of the award in early April by both mail and your MyNewSchool account.
Admitted Student Day
Mark your calendars! Admission will be hosting Accepted Student Day on Saturday, March 31st. We’ll begin continuously inviting all accepted students within the next few weeks, so please, please, please check your email! Details won’t be public on the website.
Congratulations and good luck!
