Given the evidence...

Strategy is an interesting class, and doesn't really rely on much conceptual prep (dropping in on one class should stand alone and make sense).

Quick question for other NYU Applicants - for the downloaded "Work History Form" - are you putting in ALL work experience, as the prompt seems to specify, or just all relevant, post-graduate experience, as most other schools seem to be looking for?

Thanks,

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.


Bump for the same question. Feels like essay 2 is ALL why NYU so it might be redundant to repeat it here.

Except after working w/ 100 word essays, I feel cramped with 750 :-D

Essay 2 is only 500 words and you need to answer what you did to learn about the school and how you'll specifically get involved too, so there isn't a ton of room to expand on everything you like about the program. I'm still trying to decide how best to split things up, but I want to mention some Stern specifics in each. I might focus more on extracurriculars and community involvement in Essay 2, and focus more on the strength of their finance curriculum and location, etc will help my career in Essay 1.

Hi,

I'm in for R2 please ....

Attending a class on "Financial Accounting and Reporting" by Prof. Gode on 11/16. How's the class supposed to be ? Also have the coffee break scheduled, and the Information Session at 4.

How particular is NYU about the "only 1 class visit" policy ?

Thanks.

Risky. IMM maybe goes OK as they talk about it on the website, and I know all the people in Admissions will be familiar. Problem could be that using acronyms is really bad form and annoys everyone the world over for its lack of clarity. I am certain that cutting a three word thing to one acronym is not the best way to be editing your essay.

Leave it alone and come back to it in a week perhaps (I know, Nov 15 is pretty near).

Are people filling the Work History form in the Pdf ? Or creating a separate Word document?

Plus on the activities and achievement page, is there a commonly accepted format to enter it. I just created my own month,year, activity format for Chicago, but that app hasn't gone so well, hence the niggling doubt.

Is anyone doing the optional essay to add additional things you left out of other essays (opposed to just explaining a poor gmat/gpa or not having current manager as LOR, etc)?

And if so, should this essay typically be shorter than other ones since its an extra? I'm hovering around 600 words right now, and I'm not sure if that's overkill for an optional essay.

That's even over than the word limit for the required essays! Definitely a bit too much. Unless you simply must, my suggestion would be to keep the optional essay at less than 250 words at most.

There's an excel template available on the Applications page. I was going to use that, it seems to be the most straight forward way.

Same here only I was doing it in word.

I just realized that if you are doing a Portfolio on PPT for your essay 3 you cant submit it online anyway (unless of course you somehow get it under 500KB). Looks like I am going to have to print and mail out my Essay 3 portfolio. Are there any other international applicants on this forum? I want to know what level of detail the International student supplement needs to be.

I think the international supplement is mainly important if you're already in the US. I'm not, so it took two seconds to check the right boxes.
