I'm strongly considering applying to Stern in R2, and I want to schedule a visit before classes end (12/5 I think). Does anybody have any recommendations for reasonable places to stay and the best day to visit? I assume they don't have classes on Friday and there is a happy hour thing on Thursday...if that is the case, I could fly in on Wednesday evening, visit Thursday and fly back Friday.

So I went on a tour of Stern this afternoon and sat in on a class (Mathematics of Investing). I was really impressed by the school. I just got a really great feeling from all the students that I met there. They all seemed really smart, but in a really approachable and laid-back way. I also got the impression that the career office is really thorough there. The class I sat in on was a straight finance course but the prof. had a good sense of humor. He was an old New Yorker...seemed like he knew his stuff. I enjoyed it.

Though my primary focus right now is on social enterprise, I was really intrigued by their entertainment business concentration. I'm going to have to take a class or two in that if I go there. Anyway, it was a really positive experience and I'm much more motivated now to work on my Stern app.


Ha! I met Lerverandon! Without knowing he was even here!

Thanks

Hmm. Tuesdays aren't my day. Monday & Wednesday are my big days for doing the prospective stuff (plus Friday). I might be about, but... well... I can't really work out my schedule right now.

Does anyone know if NYU allows a buffer for recommenders to submit their recs, or are they due strictly at the due time?

Can't think they would say they'll move you to R2 if you submit your R1 application on time and the recommendations come in a day or two later. But you should probably let them know in advance if you anticipate this happening.

Hi 3underscore,

Thanks for your response. I will look forward for your further response. However, can you put me in touch with someone who would be there on TUE?

Thanks

Did anyone figure out a nice way to list the "activities" and "achievements" section in the application form? No matter how I format it in the box, it always show up as one massive line in the preview.

Hi all. Count me in for R1, too (assuming I can get my app done by Saturday!). For Essay 2, do you think it's necessary to answer 2a and then 2b? Or would it be ok to address part b first?

I don't know if anyone would know the actual answer, but just wanted your opinion.

I didn't answer (a), (b) and (c) for essay 1 in that sequence. So there. I don't know if it's right or wrong, but you won't be alone in doing the same for essay 2.

By the way, I too am having a little doubt now if I can finish my essays before midnight come Saturday. Ugh.

Folks, any ideas if Stern lets you convert a full-time admit into a part-time one? I tried calling them, and the answer I got was that it requires a re-application to the part time program. Anyone heard of a case before where they did convert one without a re-application?

Looks like I'm going to be R2 for Stern. I've just had a ton of stuff going on and haven't been able to my app to where I need it to be. Also, one of my recommenders got really busy with the election (and post-election activities) and wasn't able to get my LOR done.

Do you think that the odds of getting in at Stern are about the same for R1 and R2?

Any idea if NYU Stern allows a buffer for recommendations? My recommender won't be able to submit until early next week :(

From what I was told in the reception, R1 is the same as R2. With their weird process, they will start reviewing R2 before all the R1 decisions are out.

You can convert from full-time to part-time, but converting part-time to full-time requires reapplication. I am not certain you need to reapply to convert from the part-time (a friend did this after his first year due to entrepreneurial exploits).

As for all the essay questions, I don't think the order matters in the slightest, so long as the essay makes sense and is coherent. You all need to be careful not to obsess too much on the minutae.

If that's all that's left to focus on, maybe we're in good shape? 8-)

Looking for an opinion here:

Do you guys think that using MS Visio and designing an electrical circuit (I'm an EE by background) with images and text sprawled throughout is effective for #3? I would PDF and upload the document.

Or should I go with the safe route and write an essay? How creative are you guys getting?
