How are things looking for you guys, Sterny & LeftOut? Are you in a holding pattern on other schools too? Do you have impending feedback? Preparing rd 2 apps?


Big week for me next week...I find out from Cornell and Duke. Submitting to Columbia RD at some point, but I will have plenty of time to sit on that one. Next week will decide which way I go with my R2 apps. If I get good news, I may throw an app at Wharton, too. All bad news, and it's time to reevaluate.

Glad to hear you've scheduled, I could imagine that it's eating at you to interview sooner rather than later.

ninkorn - I got an email about the chat on accepted.com also. Unfortunately, I can't access chat at work.

ninkorn, just curious...

why did you need to email Stern about scheduling? can't you do sign up/change it on the website?


none of them looked good to me so i asked if I can do it based on my preference. i don't know if I will be in NYC or not weeks in advance due to nature of my work.

Gotcha. Luckily, for me, my interview will just be a subway ride away. Good luck whenever you interview.

LeftOut, best of luck with the decisions next week. One of those schools is my alma mater and I am currently considering a rd 2 application there.

It seems really quiet on the interview invitation front! How many of us were given invites (i was not) and I wonder if all the invites for R1 have been given out already! Anyone know?

This is Dec 10 2008 Q&A interview with NYU Stern Dean of Admin.
[url]
http://blog.clearadmit.com/category/school-nyu-stern/[/url]

This revealed that between 25 to 30% of applicants will be invited to the interview. That's quite low. Also, the interviews are conducted by their admin staff. (Very rare that students or alumnis get involved)

They won't ask same questions asked in NYU Stern application such as "What do you to go to b-school?" during the interview. They want to "take it to the next level."

Last year's selectivity was at 14%. (YIKES!!!!)

After the interview, applicant should hear back within 3 weeks. Last year, between 50 to 60 percent of those interviewed got accepted. (YEAY!!!)

ALL DECISIONS WILL BE NOTIFIED THROUGH ONLINE STATUS WEBPAGE. (w automatic email afterwards)


Also when admitted, whoever interviewed the candidate will make a congratulatory call (they try to).

Some quick math:
~400 students per class. Say half the spots are taken in rd 1. That's 200 spots.
57% yield. So they accept ~350 to enroll 200.
~75% of interviewees get offers. So they interview ~450 to admit ~350 just in rd 1.

Apologies if there are any holes in my logic. My brain is on Friday mode after my office's holiday party last night.

I have only heard of 2 invites. I think the vast majority must still be coming . I have no theory regarding the big gap between the 2 that have been reported and the present.

Also on the scheduling website, there seem to be a ton of dates and times available which would mean that they are not yet taken!

This is just my opinion and could be 100% wrong, but hopefully it will provide hope to those who have heard nothing.

I don't think they would fill half the class R1, knowing that the main volume is R2. That said, given interview invites only started the other week, there are plenty more to come before February (when the R1 review ends).

So I guess they are still giving out interview invites! I thought i was done for since I hadn't heard! When did you submit?

After the nightmare situation at Kellogg I'm hoping for some Stern love this week!

How many times do I have to shout that they will continue to give R1 interview invites until February? You can assume there are about 10/15 people working in the admissions office on applications.

There are 1000 applications or so (taken from circa 5000 last year total). The review started around Nov 15. Some will not have been complete at that point. I am pretty certain they will not all have been fully reviewed!

Hi I am new here...

I submitted my application on Nov.22 - a week after R1 deadline.
I understand that I will be considered in R2, but when do they start reviewing my apps?
Received an e-mail telling me the log-in info on Dec. 2, but haven't heard back since then.
Does this mean I'm not getting invited to interview, since Stern works on rolling basis, or do I simply have to wait till Jan.15 for them to start looking at my apps?

Not everyone gets invited to the interview. In fact, NYU has very low percentage of inviting an applicant to an interview. Most of us waited quite a long time before receiving interview invites.

I think it will need the TOEFL to become a complete file. It will not be reviewed, or at least a decision made, until it is complete. At least this is what I believe. It would be wise to contact them to let them know the status (maybe they will take your self reported score).

Finblue

It will first be available for review from Jan 15. You may receive a Status Update of any form at any time before April 1. It is a bit of a wait I know, but each school has its due process it follows. So in summary, it means nothing other than you entered a ballot really early - having a low ticket in the tombola doesn't matter until it is drawn.
