Hi all!

I just received an E-mail from the NYU admission officer for scheduling the admission exam. I'm very nervous! The E-mail says the exam is three hours in length. I'm wondering the difficulty of the exam.

I already searched previous posts in this forum about the entrance exam. I was informed that there are two sections. One is translating a passage/essay, another is writing an essay for a provided topic/question. Each requires 300 words(?). I'm wondering is the essay question still "why you want to be a translator/into NYU program"? I would like to hear from former or current students in this master program. Thank you!
