I've recently been accepted into NYU ED through the HEOP. I live in Long Island, NY. Does anybody know if I'm supposed to dorm there or if I'll be commuting during the summer program? Or is dorming not an option for anyone during this pre-college period?
Are you sure to say that you were accepted? If you applied ED2 then, like me, you have been "considered". Considered students are required to attend HEOP information session/interview this Friday; there we'll learn about the program, give tax forms, etc. If everything goes right, we should get a decision on February 15th, like the rest of ED2 applicants. Good luck!!!
Edit: I just wanted to add that while you're "considered", you shouldn't feel discouraged at all. Being considered means that you've demonstrated something that HEOP wants, and this infomration session/interview is just so they have the opportunity to see you in person, as well as verify that you meet the economic portion of eligibility. You've already passed the most difficult part of the admissions process, you just have to cross that final stretch.

You're so lucky that you get to dorm..heop won't pay for dorm because I live in queens.
I wonder if I can still apply for housing, I know heop won't pay for it, but my parents can pay for a low cost triple at Rubin.
HeyleyC: When I went to visit the campus and to the information tour, I was told that I needed to APPEAL, APPEAL, and APPEAL. Phoebe, the our tour guide, said that was a word we needed to get into our heads. So, if possible, ask them. You don't really lose anything =) What date was your HEOP interview?
Sorry for the late reply, I didn't get my response until the 23rd and I haven't been on here since. Unfortunately, I got a rejection; I feel pretty devastated
What aggravates me is that this was my one chance to be able to attend NYU, and I feel like I blew it. Of course, I could always attempt to transfer from whatever college I'll be going to (most likely CUNY Baruch). However, the transfer rate to Stern is ridiculously low (less than 12%), and even if I was part of that accepted pool, NYU would give me crap financial aid (or at least, not up to par with what HEOP would've offered me) so I wouldn't be able to attend anyway!
Anyhow, I don't know what to do now. I hope you guys enjoy NYU and the city, I'll be a few blocks away...
