I interviewed for Summer Start yesterday on campus. The interview is no different from someone interviewing for a regular August start - in fact we didnt discuss Summer Start until the very end of the meeting. The questions were all behavioral, walk me through your resume, why mba, why stern, etc. Best advice is to be relaxed and excited about Stern (which it seems like you already are so thats good).

Looking at prior years the timeline goes deep into the summer.

WL today, but interviewed on 3/30. Does it make sense to send in additional materials?

If the additional material can speak to your strength and reflect progress in your career, definitely!

what do they actually do that they have to make the discalimer that if you don't want your employer to know yet then wait? Who do they call?

I emailed the adcom telling them that I am not notifying my employer until 6/1 and they told me to wait to initiate the Kroll check until 6/1, but to initiate asap after that. I may or may not wait that long given that I work at a bulge bracket firm and they will just contact some general HR person, but at least the adcom knows it will be delayed.

For what it's worth, there was a post in the 2011 NYU WL thread of someone being waitlisted on a Tuesday and getting an admit on Friday.

I asked Kroll the same question, here's their reply:

"We actually do not provide the turnaround time to the students. Feel free to reach out to your admissions team."

Looks like we aren't going to get much help from Kroll, I remember seeing an earlier post that took the op a 2-3 week time frame to get through the verification. I hope working in China and having a Chinese employer doesn't add unnecessary time, I want to submit my resignation soon so I can spend my summer traveling =)

Like, honest, unless you have hidden something ridiculous in your background in your app (colleges, companies, things other than small date errors)... Kroll isn't really going to be a concern. They only check data, not whether you are a quality material.

I started the Kroll process nearly 7 weeks ago. Since I hadn't heard anything by last week, I decided to call admissions. I was told that I would be contacted by the school only if there was a problem in my report. So I straight forward said that I want to resign my job and same for my husband and I wouldn't want to go ahead with that unless I'm absolutely sure that I'm going to NYU. She said that if there were a problem, I would be contacted by now and that I'm good to go. So I guess I'm clear although I didn't receive the formal notification.
Kinda disappointing though... I was really looking forward getting that email and feeling the thrill of getting admitted all over again :)

Hi All,
I just received an award with my package and I was wondering--what is the policy for NYU for awarding $ 2nd year? How likely is it that I will be able to get the same/similar award for next year? This type of award for my first year is an "Alumni" scholarship.
Thanks!!
