Still waiting a response here as well.

My interview did not go as well as I initially had planned. I didn't have a good vibe with my interviewer.

Maybe its a good thing since I can forgo the $17K?

I still haven't heard a thing from Stern. I submitted my application right before the deadline and received the status check login on Jan 30. Should I assume that they already put me on the list of dings?

I received notification last Friday the 27th that I have been waitlisted. I am still keeping hope and preparing my additional materials now.

Any advice?

Hi everyone! I've never before posted on GMAT Club but you folks seem to be a wise and supportive bunch so I thought it couldn't hurt to ask your opinion. I was recently accepted to NYU Stern and this week received an interview invite to Yale SOM. I'm debating whether or not it'll be worth my while to proceed with the Yale interview because I think that, even if Yale wound up accepting me, I'd stick with Stern. (Not to mention the fact that I'm an international applicant so heading out to New Haven will be an investment in time and money.) I like the fact that Stern is in NYC (will make the job search easier), has a larger class size (greater networking potential among fellow students), and is known for being a fairly strong finance school. That being said, Yale has been picking up momentum in recent years, is developing a name for itself as a finance school, and the Yale brand carries significant weight in some circles. To put my question into context, I come from a finance background and hope to continue working in finance post-MBA. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I was placed on the Waitlist in Feb and haven't heard anything new. I did hear that the waitlist should start to receive final decisions around the end of May.

presently trying to decide between Duke, IESE, and Yale. Hopefully the Yale welcome weekend will shed some light as to my decision. 8-)

I was originally waitlisted w/out interview and today was invited to interview for Summer Start!! I am very excited and wonder from others who had summer start interviews how their experience was and how different this might be from other interviews?

Thanks!

I'm also facing the NYU Stern / Yale SOM dilemma... I resolved to attend both admit weekends before making a final decision. The Stern admit weekend was great -- I left impressed. Given that I come from a finance background and plan on pursuing a finance path post-MBA, I feel like Stern probably makes the most sense (particularly from a recruiting standpoint in this difficult environment where firms are likely to focus their efforts on "core" or local schools) but I'm going into the SOM weekend with an open mind and we'll see if they're able to convince me otherwise.

Mbahopeful2009 - glad to know there are other people out there faced with similar difficulties. I actually attended the Stern admit weekend and I would have to say that I wasn't that impressed. I also come from finance and I felt that the crowd I met were somewhat a bit too focused on finance. There wasn't the diversity I was looking for in a b-school, which I'm hoping to find at Yale. The focus on finance wasn't so much the problem, but I didn't find that I liked the caliber of people that I met. I'm sure I didn't get to meet everyone, but I'm just giving my plain observation. Moreover, everyone is so afraid of not finding a job in bschool. However, the fact of the matter is that at Stern, you'll be competing with a whole lot of other people who want the same positions. My perspective is that first, at Yale you might be faced with less competition since the diversity is so much gerater, but second, when and if the economy picks up it's going to be easier for everyone to find jobs.

Safest is to check out both schools. Let me know what you think though.

I am also in finance and had to choose between Yale and Stern. I consulted with many of my MDs who used to lead recruiting team for Lehman and Morgan. They don't recall having dedicated recruiting teams to Yale for IB/Capital Markets/IM institutional business. A few for Private Wealth Management. They do recruit at Yale undergrad for all divisions. Things might have changed since then and I know all BB banks recruit at Yale, but I googled my company's new associate roster going back historically and indeed found very few Yale MBAs.

I guess, you will certainly face less competition among Yale students for Finance jobs, however, banks will likely take fewer candidates from Yale overall, maybe even cut their recruiting at Yale given the current economic crisis and small intake from Yale every year...that worries me...less competition for positions is great, but no positions to compete for is even worse....
