So it's official that Stern is now more selective than Columbia? :) Gosh, I don't fancy my chances at all. :shock:

I'm looking to submit later tonight, but both my recommenders are still MIA (with about 13 hours to go until the deadline), so I'm going to add my name to the roll call only after I've turned in everything.

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?


Personally, I think that the flowchart is a good idea as long as you explain enough about yourself in the process and you aren't just creating it to be different. I went creative with a blurb intro...hopefully submitting in the next hour or so.

Flowcharts can get complicated, with decision boxes, feedback loops, etc. You need to make sure that you don't need to have to create separate legends to define each box within your chart. Same with the circuitry board.

Good luck solaris. Just submitted 20 minutes ago! Time to celebrate (and then start on the next one tomorrow).

Not sure if this has been addressed...

When I attended an info session, they said that the Feb notification deadline is the LATEST you'll hear back. Does anyone know what sort of time frame they started notifying about interviews/dings last year?

The first interview invites started going out sometime mid-December, I believe. If you submitted well before the deadline, you would probably hear a bit sooner.

My recos are in and my application is done and submitted - I'm officially in for R1! Woohoo.

So NYU has rolling admissions within rounds, i.e. earlier R1 submit gets earlier review?

No one knows for sure, the official adcom version is no rolling admissions, just rolling "notification" according to their website.

Here's a snippet from the website I posted a few pages earlier. At least last year, most of the early applicants received interview decisions earlier. The bulk of the people who applied right around the deadline seemed to get invites in late December / early January.

Sounds pretty much like rolling admissions to me.

OK thanks. FYI, at the NYU info session, Isser Gallagly said they expect to invite 50% to interview and 60% of those invited for interview will receive offers of admission.

Is that for R1 only?

Otherwise how is their selectivity 14%?

sonibubu - The 50% interviewed seems high compared to what I remember. I believe I was told about 25% interviewed and 60% of those interviewed receive offers. I remember the percentage invited to interview was low because it seemed flipped from places like Cornell, where they interview a higher number, but make offers to fewer people.

solaris - The numbers I was told will get you to 15%, so I'm sure there's rounding in there somewhere.

Makes more sense, LeftOut - thanks. So only 1 in 4 applicants will be offered an interview. Yikes.

I decided to go R2 for Stern. I just wanted to make sure my app was the best it could be. Getting it in Saturday would have been a rush job. Good luck to all the R1ers!

Remember, the 15% selectivity rate is not equally distributed over all three admission rounds. I believe it is highest for round one and greatly lower for round 3.

So it could be 25% for round 1 , 15% for round 2, and 5 % for round 3. (that's just a guess and approximation)

I honestly do not think there is any difference between applying R1 or R2, save for the scholarship possibilities.

Historic interview rates are 20-30% interviewed, 60-70% receiving offers.

While the notion of a rolling process on reviewing files makes some sense, I urge anyone applying not to weigh this too highly in their fear or neurosis of the application situation. There are many reasons why some move at different speeds through the process, and always will be interviews being granted till the end.

Re: Calling all NYU Fall '09 applicants! [#permalink] New post 18 Nov 2008, 13:03
From the most recent Businessweek stats:

NYU Stern
Applications (admitted and denied) to the newest class: 4779
Applicants who were accepted to the most recent class: 15 %
Admitted applicants who enrolled in the newest class: 57 %
Applicants (admitted and denied) who were interviewed: 22 %

It reaffirms that an interview invite is indeed "almost there" - of course that's only because they'll invite only about 1 in 5 applicants to interview.

I'm a little surprised NYU's yield isn't higher though.
