Yep. Ross is way better than Stern. Stern clings onto NYC location. That's about it.. In terms of ranks/reputation/alumni... Ross is way better.
Unhedged,

Sorry to hear your W/L, but I were you.. I'll take Ross anyday

Hey guys, I did my interview today. My interviewer told me I'll hear back within 2-3 wks. Here are some questions that I was asked.

How will you impact the Stern community?
What skills do you need to possess for your field?
Why did you pick your college?
Career progression?
What do you like and dislike about your current job?
How will you make your decision if you get accepted into all the business schools you applied to?

Thanks guys, I appreciate the kind words. I'm not terribly upset by the waitlist, as I think I would have chosen Ross over it anyway. Good luck to everyone else waiting!

I asked this question. Before they used to interview like 30% and accept 80%
Now they interview 30% but only accept 50%.
I personally heard this from Adcom.. so no third party info

Looks you got one.. when did you get it?

It used to be around 30% with 60-70%. Never as high as 80%. Given the range, I would expect they have migrated to 50-60% perhaps to be cautious (I am not sure whether the "an interview is a sure thing" type thought process led to a lot of blowing up).

Bamo - just wait on it. The time it takes doesn't reflect on the decision. Consider it like a court case - when yours gets heard, it gets heard. In the three week time period it is highly unlikely you will migrate from being a Waitlist to an admit, or to a ding. It is clear cut, and will be decided at the point of time it is raised in the meeting. When others are scheduled has little or no bearing.

got the "application received/status checked" email today and and invite to interview during the diversity interview weekend. being that both came on the same day with one stating they look forward to reading my app and the second saying they have read my app...i wonder which it is? i'd like to have some confidence that i got invited after having my application read at least once and not just invited based on diversity with no evaluation given to my application as of yet :?

Your app probably got picked up right away. Stern interviews aren't blind. The whole application is read and only after people are invited.

Good Luck.

I wonder if this statement "for many graduating MBAs, the pressure is on to transform Stern from a "finance school" into something else entirely: a top-tier B-school that produces a diversified graduating class destined for jobs in a variety of industries, not just one" has any implication on their selection process. :roll:


as a finance person who chose to apply to nyu because of its strength as a finance school... :roll:

NYU New Dean

http://www.businessweek.com/bschools/co ... 345247.htm

But as am Alum who is bored to death of reading on here how "it is a finance school" (and as a person in Finance) it is annoyingly blind-sighted.



i think the primary reason that stern retains this label is strictly from employment #s. From the article: "Yet even as late into the financial crisis as 2009, nearly half the Stern graduating class was still pursuing careers in financial services".

as you mentioned, finance isn't going to go away (any more than it would go away from booth or cbs), but initiatives by the new dean should help reduce the label at least somewhat

For those of you who have already interviewed on campus. What kind of activities are organized by Stern? At the moment I have scheduled the interview + lunch with students. However I would like to attend a class and speak with few students clubs. For class visits, Stern website only says that they are reserved for people who are interviewing, however I could not enroll for them when I set up my interview. Does anybody know how does it work?

Also, I am a female applicant, and although I received invitiation to interview last week, my invitation was not extended to the SWIB conference (where I think they also interview candidates). Does anybody know if this means something? I am not sure if they only interview US applicants

They will give you a Stern shirt before the interview to make you remember them. It will be great if you are accepted, but if you are denied, I suggest burning the shirt or throwing it away.

that's not true... there are people who interviewed after us (1/11 or 1/12) who got acceptances... I am pretty convinced for this for Stern: if you do not hear for an interview within a month of application, then you're ding or waitlist. if you do not hear within 2 weeks after interview, then it's a ding or waitlist


of course, this is mere speculation unless you're an NYU adcom member. as i've said in other threads to other people, feel free to speculate as much as you like about any school's admission process, but please don't make things seem like fact when you are merely stating your observation or opinion.

At least going by the gmatclub stats, that looks quite plausible.
