I'm a big winner!! I filled out a interview review on accepted.com's site and I won $10 from Amazon.com. Woo-hoo! It has been a very weird week!

I'm a little annoyed by NYU. They seem a little inflexible there. With few exceptions, they require all of their interviewees to schlep to NYC for an interview. It's not that big of a deal for me because I'm on the east coast, but I can imagine this requirement could be a real hardship for some applicants. On the BW Forum, I read a post from someone who had visa issues and NYU still wouldn't budge. That seems extreme. I get that they need people to show commitment (especially with a 50% yield) but what if someone works in Bumble and doesn't have the resources to fly half around the world? And I'm a little ticked that I got an email on Wednesday telling me I HAD to interview by next Friday. That's not even two weeks notice. What if I had been on vacation? I think it's a bit tacky. The inflexibility just screams inferiority complex.

If NYU were a person I could complain to, I'd say, "Hello, NYU being a hard ass hasn't helped your yield, now has it? Maybe your inflexibility turns people off."

Inflexible hard asses....
