Essay 3 Personal Expression
Please describe yourself to your MBA classmates. You may use almost any method to convey your message (e.g. words, illustrations). Feel free to be creative.


Any thoughts on how to answer this one? Should I show that I bring in some unique experiences?

Definitely! Throughout your application, you should be thinking: does this demonstrate how I'm unique? what value I would add to the class?

I think it's a great opportunity to show how you'd enrich the lives of your classmates and even have an impact on the school.

PS I didn't apply to Stern, this is just general advice.
PPS Solaris1: correct me if this doesn't make sense!

The second essays too asks about the impact.

(c) How do you anticipate making your mark on the Stern community? Be specific about the roles you will take on and the impact you hope to achieve.

Yes it does. I guess if I was approaching this app, I'd break it down a bit - spend more time in essay 2 talking about how I'd impact Stern, essay 3 on who I am, and why my being a part of the class would enrich the lives of my classmates. I'd also make essay 3 fun, add some details on my interests/passions/etc.

I already have my essay 3 planned since March. It is going to be a photo collage. Are they common for this type of essay?

It's probably one of three most commonly occurring submissions to essay #3 on the application.

will be applying R1 from NYC. Ughhh aside from the essays I have to consider studying for and retaking the GMAT.. 75th percentile quant and 2.95 UG GPA from a real non-target are going to be serious obstacles to overcome.

on the flipside, my grandmother's dead husband went to stern, so i'm... sort of a legacy? heh.

Not sure you should be overly worried about any component of a 710 GMAT score.

Well, 75th percentile is hardly good. Coupled with the quantitative focus at the programs I'm applying to along with my poor undergraduate GPA, I feel like it would make sense to retake. Unfortunately I'm just not prepared to invest the time right now, I'd rather spend it on making my essays really good.

But maybe you DO think that a 710 is inferior and you're just trying to get me to apply with a low score so as to eliminate me from the running... very :twisted: of you :wink:

I just graduated from Stern. I know of a lot of people who appeared as though they had a much lower Quant ability than to get a 710, but then I am more Quant aligned (and had a lower GMAT).

Depends on whether your undergrad was in engineering or math or something - if so, I think a low Q would worry people. But there are remedial math classes and elements to bring people up to speed where necessary.

I think you are right not to worry about it for now - maybe do a little work on your math in the interim in case you want to retake, then you can run at it quickly. The Verbal side seems like you should be able to have that in the bag at short notice.

I think I'm going to take Calc 1 @ Hunter. Hopefully getting an A in that will show both my capacity to be successful academically and my ability to work well with quantitative material.

The preliminary class profile for the new incoming class is up. GMAT/GPA are up slightly, selectivity is around the same as last year.

You two are some kind rivalry. Those number are insanely high, Solaris, compared to what books says on any previous year. This is interesting.

Never been to NY but I know people spend a lot of time on commute.

Do Stern students live close by the univ? I looked at the on-campus housing and the rents appear too costly compared to what I'm paying now.

Another Round 1 here. Thank god for the slightly later deadline!

I'm an International applicant and I actually visited the STERN campus last year (I figured I'd be too far away during the admit season) and met some extremely helpful folks. Would the adcom mind if I talked about conversations I had with students over 8 months ago?
