to the people who have visited stern already, can you speak about the student community. are students involved in activities outside of class? is there camaraderie? do students participate in campus groups and activities? how well do they network and "bond" with each other? or do most people just go off and follow their own agenda somewhere off in the city?

also, is there a lot of on-campus recruiting or do all the employer expect you to come to them since so many are HQ'ed in NY or have big NYC offices?

When I visited the school a BIG emphasis was put on the stern community. It was a former student giving the tour; he spoke of the clubs and events before even talking about the curriculum and careers. He had a couple of examples of how students are not just there to learn and get a job, but rather help each other succeed and and build a stronger student body, a better student experience. He did mention that ppl live all over the city, but the majority live close to school.

I don't know about the career stuff.

Some companies hold off-campus events in addition to on-campus presentations, but everyone recruiting "on-campus" is physically there on campus.

Obviously, this doesn't include companies who simply look for applicants from Stern via job postings.

The off-campus element is part a pain, part excellent.

+ For off campus main events (which are unusual), the number of staff in attendance is huge, and the food is way better
+ The interaction can be more frequent, with the companies able to customize more, bring interactive games
+ It isn't a very organized "we are here this day, this day, this day existence"
+ Less easy to be fooled as you can spend time in the company, with the people. It can't be acted out as easy
+ You don't have to keep traveling to NYC for event time informationals

- It isn't a very organized "we are here this day, this day, this day experience" = being on hand a lot for face time. Which is good, but can be bad
- Some industries really take advantage and ask a lot of you for visiting them. They do recruit more people though as well.

I'm a reapplicant. I"m doing the required essay #1 and then an essay as to how I've improved my candidacy since last year. I think goals can become better defined, but trying to write an entirely different essay on how you've gotten to know the stern community would be pretty hard given I've already elaborated on my examples last year. So that's why i'm not going to do another essay 2. and for essay 3 i did a big production last year so I hope they still have it. Do they say we can do more essays? or do they consider that overkill and just want reapps to do the ones they require??? now i'm all confused.

I've heard good things about Prof.Okun as well.

Just working on Essay 1 for Stern. Though they don't specifically ask for why Stern in the question set, should I spend time on it? After writing 600 word goals essays 750 suddenly seems like a lot of space.

try to avoid core classes - they really are never going to be the most exciting to attend at any school. Damodaran has Valuation which is great, but probably odd to drop into in mid semester. Entrepreneurial Finance with Roy Smith, Prof Responsibility only if it is with Zicklin, Brand Strategy if it is running. If you are crazy, Advanced Futures and Options at 9am is a really strange way to start a day.

Okun is more of an enjoyable class to be a non-participant in as he is great but his grading is hard and not quite so predictable as in others.

Count me in for R1.

I've scheduled a visit for the end of the month - I'll be sitting in on "Strategy" with Melissa Schilling. Any tips from students to make the visit a productive one? I'm scheduled for the class and the 3pm coffee break, and will take a tour too.

Maybe go up to Admissions when you have a moment and speak with the Graduate Ambassadors with any questions you have. Coffee is mostly first years, they are second years so offer a different perspective and are there for that reason.

Email clubs that you are interested in - you may well be able to catch up with people from them while there to learn more (and build your essays - same for the Ambassadors).
