solaris +1 for the debrief. Hopefully, you hear good news soon.

Has anyone heard of any waitlists/dings yet?


I figured I would jinx myself by writing that last night...

Just received a waitlist notification. Guess that's a step up from my first 2 rejections... :|

Oh, and congrats solaris! How about you go to Cornell, so I can take your spot at NYU?

Thank you, everyone! I'm quite honestly ecstatic about having made it in to Stern. I think my Stern application was my strongest so far and I would have been utterly disappointed if I hadn't made it.

Thanks very much, and I am almost sure I will be matriculating at NYU in the fall. :)

Re: Calling all NYU Fall '09 applicants! [#permalink] New post 14 Jan 2009, 08:20
First off, apologies for the long post.

I was waitlisted yesterday and I'm curious about the proceedings. Given that I have no other admits at this point and Stern was one of my top 2 choices, this is something I plan to pursue rather aggressively. I have a few questions though. I'm hoping 3underscore, navy01 (if she's around, since she was admitted off the w/l last year), or anyone else that has an opinion can provide some insight.

1) How does the waitlist work at Stern vs. other schools? At other schools with invitation-only interviews, you're usually waitlisted after interviewing. At Stern, I was waitlisted pre-interview. So technically, am I waitlisted for an interview or waitlisted for admission? I presume the former, but hoping for the latter.

2) Does anyone know Stern's timeline for the waitlist? I know navy01 was admitted off the waitlist pretty late in the game last year, but do they wait until after all rounds? Or is there a chance for admission witht the R2 pool?

3) I've read through some of the waitlist best practices, and I'm thinking of having another recommendation sent. I haven't read my recommendations. At this point, is it fair for me to approach my recommenders and ask to see what they have written? I'm worried that there was overlap between the two people I had write for me.

4) Any other suggestions (ie. timeline, things to submit, types of booze to drink to pass the time)?

Thanks everyone...and hopefully everyone else gets admitted, so they don't have to worry about this. Although, I'm sure this information can be helpful to those who are also waitlisted at Stern.

how do you kow that you have been waitlisted? did you received an email? i have applied to R1 and I still have to know anything about stern.

They received the toefl Score report after the deadline (There was some problem), is possible that they consider mw with the R2 pool?

What sort of percentage (or do they not release these figures) gets off the waitlist?

I am 1st round NYU applicant. I haven't heard anything yet. I was curious to know if the 2nd round deadline is tomorrow does that mean the evaluation of all 1st round candidates has been completed? Does anyone remember from last year if the school sent out interview invites during the same time (or did the overlap occur?).

As 3underscore confirmed earlier on this thread, R1 interview invites will continue well into February.

Another little tidbit the international applicants on the thread might find useful, the Admitted Students Website currently states that international students will be able to obtain up to 40k in loans without cosigner. The only caveat being that this information would still be subject to change.

I am an international applicant and I have been dinged one hour ago. A friend of mine has also received the ding today, therefore today NYU has rejected today a bunch of candidates.

Hey fellow Stern applicants...I'm back after going on a 3 week hiatus from the forums.

Congrats to Solaris...that's awesome. I'm one step closer to joining you after a pretty solid interview yesterday. Noticed a typo in my thank you note which is going to bug me until I get my decision but I really hope a tiny error so late in the process won't change anything.

That's awesome, liquidice. Don't worry about the typo, I'm sure admissions is all about the big picture at this point. Good luck! You'll probably find out in just a few more days.

I've been waitlisted by NYU as well. Anyone have any suggestions or input on next steps at this point? I know NYU's policies for waitlisters allows for another recommendation or updates on the resume, gmat, etc.

Late one, but many many congratulations solaris. I visited NYU last year and was thoroughly impressed. Keep an eye out for classes by Prof. Damodaran - he's a rock star (and so are you).

Why thank you, bsd_lover. I know Damodaran is supposed to awesome and NYU Stern has this "take faculty to lunch" program, too. :-D

The strength of Stern's faculty never gets discussed as much as it should, Adam Brandenburger is a legend in his own right, Nouriel Roubini is a rather colourful personality who's been in the news quite a bit recently, and Amity Shlaes (formerly of the FT and Bloomberg) will be joining this year. I'm certainly going to try and take classes with all of these "star" professors.

rabbini is very good..infact they will be adding nicholas talib as well thru NYUs merger with Poly.

Nicholas talib is the guy behind the black swan phenomena.. which everyone in finance and risk modeling is talking about..

good school

I am a R2 applicant. Since there is no official "mid decision" date in Stern's publications, does anybody here know when should we expect to receive such decisions (i.e interview invitation or an official ding)?
