Had my NYU interview earlier this week as a RD1 applicant. I'm really not sure how it went, I think I aced some q's but was blindsided by the interviewer's focus on digging into my extra-curriculars and job strategy in college vs. asking me about current work exp, why NYU, etc....ugh.

Had my interview earlier this week and I must say that I was impressed on the research that Stern did. It was by far the most in depth of all the interviews that I had and the questions were NOT common questions (i.e. why MBA, etc.) It almost seemed like you were supposed to answer those as part of the bigger questions, but once again, the questions I got were extremely detailed and specific to industries and even companies.

Also, not bad to get a free t-shirt!

While I'm not particularly fond of the arrogant attitudes, I think it's probably something you should get used to. You'll find arrogance at top schools among the students and faculty, and probably even more so among the firms you'll be applying to. The group of schools we all aspire to attend are incredibly selective, and that can get to some people's heads.

hi there,

I am a R1 applicant from Australia/UK. I have not heard anything back with regards to my application. Do you think this is a likely rejection given that most who have been waitlisted or requested for an interview have already been advised?

Are there any other applicants from the Uk or Australia?

Hope to hear frrom someone.

thanks


Many international applicants are yet to hear from Stern, especially if the applicant is from any of the countries (China, India, and UK) where the adcom will be travelling for off-campus interviews. There is also the unconfirmed report that International R1 and R2 applicants are clubbed together and the interviews are conducted for both set of applicants during early March. This could be the reason why internationals have not heard yet.

I am hoping that this wait is not a prelude to a mass waitlist/ding. :roll:

For the sake of Indian applicants:

I have been following this thread since the start and so far just 1 Indian applicant has been invited for interview and another waitlisted.

God bless the rest of us

I feel like NYU sends out admits on Fridays. Can anyone verify this?

So far the two dates that people have heard on are 12/20 (Monday) and 1/5 (Wednesday). Each of those are roughly two weeks apart, so perhaps this week?

My email notification came shortly after 5pm. I noticed the change on the status page about a half hour before that. The email came from NYU Stern MBA Admissions and had a subject of NYU Stern MBA Admissions. The body of the email just says that there has been an update to the status of the application and a link to the status check site is provided. I'm not sure what it said for waitlisted/dinged applicants, but I'm guessing that nothing is given away by the email itself.

Heard from adcom, over phone, that most international invites have already been sent, even to those from Europe (UK), China and India, and very few invites are left. Didn't give me the number of invites left or anything. I guess, it's left to our conclusion.

I am surprised becuse a couple of days ago someone said that international invites are yet to be sent. Probably this adcom was more forthcoming? Ain't good for me anywise.

Just checked...I AM IN!!!!!!

Submitted 11/14
Interviewed 1/10
Admitted 1/26

For those who totally freak out and want the full story like me, what the Stern email is from "NYU Stern Admissions" and the subject is "NYU Stern Admissions." You go to your website and there says that there is a Status Letter at the bottom. Click on that and you find out. Moral of the story is that if you don't get an email that says "Congrats" - DO NOT FREAK OUT.

I know this has been mentioned before, but thought I would bring it up again.

For those wanting to kill time, if you go to YouTube and type in "Stern Essay 3" you will see a bunch of submissions from 2011 applicants. Some good, some not quite polished, but regardless they're interesting to watch.

Also, for those who are already accepted, you may get a preview of your future classmates!

@wp06

I interviewed with Maggie as well. She didn't reply to my thank you email and I still got in. So don't read into anything if she doesn't. More likely she is just very busy.

Look forward to possibly seeing you this fall. Good luck!

Nope, RD! I am choosing brand management as my career path and as I understand it, they are about even in that area. I am also looking to stay in consumer products / luxury products (my background) and I do believe the major players recruit at both. I think I am going to call Columbia and see if they will award me anything given this situation....hmm.

There's a relevant discussion in the Booth Full Ride ($$$) vs HBS thread. Similar to your situation -- both top schools, HBS is ivy and considered a bit more prestigious though job prospects from both are probably very similar.

The conventional wisdom is that you shouldn't let scholarship money influence your decision if you would definitely choose the non-$$ school if scholarships weren't in play. In other words, if CBS is the right school for you, go to CBS as the $25K or $50K isn't a lot in the big picture, whereas going to the right program will benefit you greatly in the long run.

However, someone brought up a really interesting point in that thread (rhyme perhaps?). That was, the votes seemed to generally align between alums vs prospective students (one could also view it as pragmatists vs idealists). Those who have completed bschool largely voted for the pragmatic choice of Booth w/ $$ and prospective students largely voted for HBS (initially I did). The people who have been there and done that seem to have concluded what VictoryMBA did -- the Ivy shine wears off -- that holds a lot of weight with me.

So, I would propose the decision tree to look something like this:

(In terms of money, I echo what someone said earlier, there is $, $$, and $$$, and this is $$)

If faced with School A no $$ vs B w $$:

(i) If B > A -> B

(ii) If B = A -> B

(iii) If B < A but only because slight prestige factor but both programs are great for your goals -> B

(iv) If B < A for substantive reasons -> A

In your case JB, it seems that the situation is (iii), so I would go with NYU if I was you. However, I like your idea of throwing the option to CBS to woo you, and if the money is the same or better then that changes things.

WOW! So you got your interview invite four days after submitting!?! Is that normal? I submitted on 1/15/11 and still haven't heard...When should I expect to hear? Any ideas?


I wouldn't worry - no one has posted about any January round interviews. It appears that if you submitted in December you were grouped w/ the tail end of the November round.

On a side note, I had posted earlier that I went back and read through last year's NYU thread. It appears that February 8 was when January round interview invites began, so next week will be a big week for a lucky few.

@solaris1 (or anyone else who knows about this) - how do scholarships work for 2nd years? Are they only available for people who got them in their 1st year and performed well academically? Or can anyone earn scholarships for 2nd year based on 1st year performance? If so, what kind of $$ levels?


As someone pointed out already, the scholarships offered with your admissions decision are for the MBA1 year only. Several MBA2s (irrespective of whether they had scholarships as MBA1s) are offered scholarships based on how "well" they do academically (or otherwise) during their MBA1 year. The MBA2 year scholarship amounts once again typically range from 5,000 to 15,000, but go as high as 50,000. Obviously only a couple of people get the 50,000.

Unless I'm mistaken, you can also apply to a handful of scholarships after being admitted, the Harvey Beker Scholarship is the only I can think of at this point however.

Ok, web programmer here. There's only one web page template that the server uses to show that "Thank you" message. In other words, it's impossible that everyone has their own page that requires little elves to fix it one by one.

Guess what? Try to delete your browser history and see if the grammar is fixed now. Most likely, YOUR BROWSER CACHED THE OLD/INCORRECT PAGE and that's why everyone sees a different version.
