There is a period of overlap between R1 and R2. I don't really think that any R2 people will be getting decisions quite yet - after the deadline there is a period where the files are completed, and that means they would only be starting to deal with any R2 around now.

If you are on the waitlist it is best to try and work out where the weaker part of your application is (Academic, Work, Personal) and see how you can move to improve it. There are people accessible at Stern who you can talk to - Students there to help as best they can on that. Remember that a Waitlist isn't a bad thing (a Ding is) - there is obviously enough in your file for the AdCom to want to keep you on hold, and it comes to you to make them want to interview you by flushing things out where you can.

Hi all,

This is my first post. I was extended an interview for a R1 application for the summer start program. The Stern website gives limited information on it aside from the fact that you pay an extra $2,500 to start in mid-July and it focuses on building leadership amongst a small pool of applicants. Is this a good thing or a bad thing?

Are they saying I am "slow" and need an extra boost by taking a few courses early?

Thanks

Stern is amazing. I interviewed on 2/2/08 at 10:30am, and I received an offer a few minutes ago. Total wait time = 2 days. I'm thrilled.

summer start isn't targeted for "slow" students. Some of the brightest people I met were part of that program. Although I did not partake, I think its a great way to kick off your b-school experience. You'll have the advantage of being able to adjust in a lower stressed environment, meet great people, and complete a class. The trade-off being your summer break will be a few weeks shorter, but i honestly think its worth it.

Thanks. I was initially confused when I received the e-mail notification from NYU because it gave conflicting signals about the program. Its something I would seriously consider especially if I can't obtain a pre-MBA internship in my field.

MBARunner, this is perhaps a silly question - but I'm assuming you were admitted already and put down an enrollment deposit at Stern before being invited to interview for Summer Start?

I did not get invited to interview for Summer Start, but Admissions told me I could still apply separately, discuss my interest in Summer Start, and I would be considered for a limited number of spots that weren't offered on an invitation-only basis. I personally think it's a great program, and I would love the opportunity to take a required core class and a management elective I would have taken anyway over the summer. Unfortunately I now have to write one more essay. :(

And just bear in mind, while Summer Start students eventually only end up paying $2,500 more in tuition as opposed to the regular Fall start students, the Financial Aid office puts down the total cost of attendance during the summer term at $17,749. Of course, this includes housing, travel, books, health insurance et cetera. :)

Summer Start often is a big feeder into leadership opportunities in the school, or alternatively reflects relatively unconventional backgrounds or target careers. It is not a negative, by any means.

I have not been accepted to Stern. I suppose the interview will serve dual purposes.

Summer Start people are interviewed to Summer Start. A small number of regular applicants (read - those not earmarked for Summer Start) are given the possibility to switch into the program, though it is not guaranteed.

I believe a Summer Start interview means you are only going to be admitted to Summer Start. Personally, from what I have seen the whole experience from the program is hugely beneficial, develops a really tight bunch of friends who do get strongly involved in the clubs and government of the school. It is a great program with lots of leadership development work and stuff.

Thanks for clarifying MBARunner, and good luck with your Summer Start interview. To echo what 3underscore said, I think I've also heard of applicants being invited to a Summer Start interview before the traditional application interview - I will however hope for your sake, that you're not asked to interview twice! :)

Do let us know how things go, please.

3underscore - I'm glad you think so highly of the program. I'm just waiting for my enrollment deposit to clear, and I'll turn in my application to Summer Start, too. Would you happen to know what typically distinguishes an applicant invited to interview for Summer Start, and another who isn't and is asked to apply separately? I'm just curious.

I think we'll see a lot of decisions later this week. I know there are usually a lot of interviews at the SWIB Conference, which concluded this past Friday. So, good luck to anyone who interviewed there last week.

Solaris: congrats on being accepted. Irrespective of the summer start decision - you have already passed the biggest hurdle that most of us are facing thus far - getting accepted to one of your top choices!

Admissions did say that Summer Start applicants are automatically enrolled in the Fall '09 class and do not have to come back for a second interview. Although I am not sure how the semantics work if you get denied for the Summer Start, but still happen to meet the criteria for regular admission. Will keep you posted.

Not sure what the criteria is. Without divulging too much information: I work in the HF industry / graduated top of my class from a non-ivy school / slightly less than 5 years work experience / LIII candidate in the CFA program (crossing my fingers that I will pass this June)

3underscore: thanks for all the helpful information. I was involved in leadership activities during my undergrad studies and would definitely be interested in keeping that streak alive.

I was invited to interview but not specifically for summer start. Does that mean I would have to apply separately for summer start if I'm accepted, or are some people automatically admitted?

I would think I would be a good candidate for this program because I have never taken a business class in my life! But NYU didn't mention anything about summer start in my invite.

You interview once - Summer Start interviews are for the MBA program, but the summer start section of things.

I am a R2 international applicant and still have not received anything...

If I'll get an interview invite, I guess that I will have to fly out to NY. Since the decision deadline is April 1 and since I believe that the adcom will need a couple of weeks after the interview to evaluate my candidacy, it seems that, if I do get invited, I will have to conduct my interview until about March 16-17.

It is going to be extremely difficult to book a flight and accomodations in such a short notice (bookingwise and workwise...) - why don't they release decisions regarding international applicants earlier? Come to think of it, if I did not receive an invite so far (being an international applicant) - does that mean I will receive a ding?

PS I submitted my application on the deadline date.

wow, 17 grand!! how much can NYC cost for 6 weeks of rent!! I mean, you'd have to buy those books anyway, right? I have health insurance, so I wont need NYUs. How does that work, do you get a refund? I'm not in at NYU but still hoping for summer start! but where do the costs of $17 come in! Maybe I could bunk with my parents, ugh!

Interesting they present summer start that way - $11k of it is just a rescheduling of your fees because of classes (you will take 12 credits rather than 15 for two semesters, recouping about $8k of the money).

There is a bunch of other stuff involved that I am led to believe is worth the money. I have yet to meet a summer start student who hasn't been anything but full of praise for the program.
