Interesting that NYU had more apps than chicago Booth last year. I think yield is low because NYU is a backup to Columbia, and Wharton.

Heck, even Kellogg had under 60% yield. I'm pretty sure Chicago GSB is in the same book. HBS, Stanford, and CBS have the highest yields followed by Wharton.

I got an email today with my password to the application status check. It doesn't say anything other than they've received my app, they are going to review it at some point, and I will hear something by the Initial Notification Deadline in Feb.

Since I submitted on the 15th and no one else has reported getting this email, maybe it's all a lie that they review them in the order they're received...maybe it's LIFO?

Or maybe they're just plucking the low-hanging fruit first? :?

An automated message - you receive that when your application is completed online. Say if you posted an essay 3, you will receive that.

I applied in round one and I still don't know anything. Do you know what rate of applicants are interviewed?

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.



According to this Q&A in Businessweek, it is only 25 to 30%....

Got you on the list. What was your submit date?

Ryguy, kidderek...what were your submit dates? This will help us verify is NYU does rolling apps (as is my assumption) within rounds.

Anybody hear specifics about the number of applications submitted for Fall '09? I heard some pretty disturbing stats that I hope are not true. I was told that there was a greater than a 100% increase in the number at NYU from last year. Granted, I received this information indirectly, and there is probably some degree of exaggeration, but STILL.....

I think greater than 100% increase is false.

However, I did hear that app volume is up around 40% compared to LY. (it was in one of those admissions Q&A in either BW, WSJ, or some other pub)

Another disturbing fact was Stern adcom thinks by the time R3 deadline comes around, they won't have much slots left for Fall 2009 FT.

Thanks for the info. ninkorn.

I wonder if the NYC schools will see a relatively greater increase in application volume because of the Finance Industry..Either way, it will be tough this year.

ninkorn and tamg08, if you would post sources for those statistics you cite, it would be very helpful. Otherwise it's simply pure speculation.

IMO, it's highly unlikely that R1 applications are up 40%.

Found the Bw article I read few wks ago.

My bad. 40% number was for Penn State - Smeal. NYU was in the same article (paragraph after Smeal) and I guess I just remembered 40% number.

http://www.businessweek.com/bschools/co ... 158181.htm

According to the article,, NYU received 20% increase in apps in 2008 vs 2007.


Also according to this article:

http://www.crainsnewyork.com/apps/pbcs. ... 69985/1057

Stern MBA apps are expected to be significantly higher in 2009. There was another article in WSJ that Fall 2009 app numbers are not official yet

@ Solaris: I understand your concern about misinformation and the hysteria it could cause.

I'll tell you as much as I can about my information. It came indirectly from a current Stern student via this student's family member, whom I trust very much and who has no reason to lie. That's why I was conflicted about posting it. It seems like a crazy number, but I trust the source. I figured if it were true, everyone would already be freaking out about it on this forum. If it was simply an exaggeration, someone informed, such as ninkorn, would set me straight. I definitely believe ninkorn's number.

I am intruiged as to where this might have come from. I can't think of any student that would know this at all. There have been signs that their would be an increase, but I can't see any basis for where this was found.
