I suppose be attending the info session tonight in Boston. However, I got food poisoning during lunch, start having diarrhea close to the evening. I decided to skip the session, since I don't want to run to bath room every 10 minutes and distract everyone. :oops: Since I registered for the event, should I let them know what happened? Would it have bad effect on my app? :( eh.... I did do a campus visit back in April, and plan to visit again in October. Now, I'm paranoid

Wouldn't worry about it. If you're registering during visits, you're fine. School visits count more than info session visits IMO.

I am probably not the best person for that, but please do drop me a message when you are coming in for Information sessions, tours, or any of that part of the applications. My schedule is looking really busy, so my reliability to be at Beer Blast is uncertain but otherwise I am pretty certain to be about. Outwith classes, I will do my very best to be available and help out.

Should I bother mentioning that I did a class visit last year? I plan on doing one this year as well. I think I wasn't quite ripe enough for bschool last year.

Do you guys think this whole thing is worth mentioning or just go with this year's visit?

Did you actually end up applying? Drop me a line and I will give you my 2cents. I think that mentioning it puts you towards validating why you feel more ready now than you did. Those essays are short. Maybe you can make it part of your constructive feedback for the second essay if it fits that situation?

I'm in a similar situation. I attended multiple events last year in hopes of applying. But my GMAT score sucked and I didn't feel comfortable applying. So I studied and increased my score to a point where I feel comfortable applying. But now I don't know if I should be attending events this year again. I don't think there is really much more I can learn from attending Discover Stern again and doing another class visit, but I afraid they may look at the fact that I haven't interacted with the school that much this year as a negative.

That sounds like it's a Langone program class, no? Weird timing.

I don't think so. From my recollection, first years take 4 classes that meet twice a week and one class that meets ONCE a week. That once a week-er is 3+ hours long.

OK - the 5.45pm classes are meet times, the classes are at 6pm. There are a good collection of classes of the evening that are taken as electives by the second year classes (and 1st years second semester) that are also available to the Langone students.

Kidderek is right about the MBA1 classes - they will be the 1.15pm meet classes, and the double class is Strategy on Mondays. These might not be open, as the core classes are often pretty full on the room (that is actually why those classes aren't all there, at a guess).

The 5.45pm classes will always have a break half way through or thereabouts, where I think it is fine for prospective students to leave unless they are really fascinated and want to stay till 9pm. There is ample time to escape, but I would consult the person who is accompanying you to the class.

If you have the option see the following core classes:

Foundations of Finance w/ William Silber
MW at 10:30 and 1:30

Accounting w/ Dan Gode
He teaches the entire accounting core so 4 different setions, MW

Marketing w/ Carr is also good but don't know if he is teaching right now

I've heard a thing or two about beer blast. What time does it start and is it well attended or does that vary depending on the time of year?

I would love if a Stern ambassador here would invite me to the Beer Blast. Perhaps we can plan something with all gmatclub applicants?

Re: Calling all NYU Fall '09 applicants! [#permalink] New post 06 Oct 2008, 13:08
So I visited a marketing class at Stern today. I'd sat in on too many finance and accounting classes at other schools, so I thought I'd try marketing out for a change. The class unfortunately would have been a total snoozefest, had it not been for one really awesome presentation by a couple of European second year students. I'm so totally writing about them in my essays!

Other impressions - the Sternies are a cool bunch, no doubt, but now that I've spent some more time with them, I think some take the "down to earth" bit a little too seriously and "down to business" not as seriously. :? Just my highly subjective opinion I guess.

And the "coffee with students" thing didn't seem really well organized, we were basically just given a coupon and told to go down and get something at the Sosnoff Lounge on the first floor. I wish the Admissions Office had actually asked the students who led us into class to hang out with us for a while there. I'm a bit of a wallflower, and the cafe was packed at 3pm! Rather than just try to barge in on conversations, I decided to skip the free coffee and walk around the building for a bit.

I think Cornell does its whole "student lunch" in a much better way, makes the prospectives feel a little more welcome. That or maybe I need to work on my networking skills.

Oh well, I'm still pretty sure I'll be applying R1 so nothing's changed my overall opinion of the place. I hope everyone else will get to visit a class, too.

Unfortunately, I think only current students are able to go... I'll ask around, but they always make us scan our ID's to get in.

Re: Calling all NYU Fall '09 applicants! [#permalink] New post 09 Oct 2008, 07:46
Guys, does NYU not give applicants access to the letter of evaluation questionnaire for the recommenders? I wanted to "prep" my recommenders for the NYU application, but it doesn't seem that the form is available on the application website.

Anyone have any insights? Sterny - you seem to be the only here who's submitted already. Did you see this form (or the list of questions) anywhere?

And jsnooky33 - do the Langone students crash Beer Blast, too? I'm actually very curious about this since it seems that for a lot of 2nd year electives (the evening ones), the full-timers share classes with the part-timers. I would ideally want to take all my classes with my immediate peers, so this full-time/part-time in the evening business at least to me seems like it might possibly weaken the "full-time" experience a little bit.

No offense to the Langone folks, however.

solaris1, I'm sorry your experience didn't go so well. Perhaps the difference is that (1) you were in marketing and most of these students already have jobs lined up hence the more "down to earth" compared to "down to business". I'd be willing to bet that (2) all finance/accounting classes at all schools are more "down to business" vs. marketing due to the quantitative nature of the subject matter. "Down to business" is at a peak during your first semester when grades count, especially for finance wannabes and second year when finance people have to beef up their modeling skills w/ Gode.

As for beer blast, all you need to do is show up with $10 and you can get in. If they question you, just say you've heard this is one of the very unique aspects of stern and you wanted to experience it as a prospective student. THEN, go to the flip cup table or walk up to a group of people and tell them you are a prospective student and I'm sure you'll get an earful.

I would love to be a host but recruiting is starting this Monday so I'll have two events every night which go from 4:30 to 9:00 so I probably won't make it. I'm going to assume this is the time when MBA2s go to beer blast since all the MBA1s will have cleared out.

Also, if any of you come for coffee or whatever, let me know and I'll try and meet up with you. I'm usually free Monday/Tuesday during lunch.

Thanks, navy01. The student who accompanied me to that marketing class (and 3underscore) explained that a lot of second years really take it easy this time of the year and so my class experience wasn't quite representative of what typically goes on in the marketing classes. Also, the case being discussed in class "sucked" according to my student guide, so that might have played a role in it as well.

And yes, you're right - there's an inherently different in the way a finance class and a marketing class is run, and in fact that's precisely what I wanted to witness, so I'm sure I went in with very different expectations.

Thanks again for your insight.

The adcom rep at the off campus event told us that there is no advantage in submitting the app on 20th Oct versus 15th Nov. Did he goof up facts on that one?
