Hi, I had my interview at Stern and I would like to share my insight. Te interview itself was very interesting, very professional I must say. I prefer not to talk about my interviewer out of respect.

I was feeling very tired and I am not that sure how it went. I am feeling very nervous not knowing if I actually reflected my true passion for the school. On the other hand, I liked the idea that they actually know your application. This translates in a very personalized interview. All of you who are still waiting or have not yet interviewed remember to be consistent. Sounds obvious, but there are many questions that might make you contradict yourself.

The campus itself is just perfect, the best place in New York City. People are really nice as well. It is not just pure marketing. People are very helpful, down-to-earth and engaged. I knew it was a great MBA program and now that I was actually there and met with many students, I am sure.

As an advice, prepare yourself for the traditional questions but know that every interview is going to be unique and based on your application.

Best of luck

this question is for anyone who has gotten a final result. How long after your interview did you hear if you got in or not?

They say you'll get an answer within three weeks, but stats show that it usually takes two to hear back from them.

I'm in the first week and I am so anxious!

[quote="anneb"]I applied R2 and got an invite yesterday- for the summer start program. It's for people who have been out of school for a long time or who have low quant skills and high soft skills.
I was surprised and pleased to get an invite so late in the game.
I guess there is still hope! Best of luck to everyone who is waiting. I am so anxious to get this process over with.

Did you have your transcripts with you when you interviewed? If so, and it has been more than 3 weeks since you interviewed it might be worth a call just to check up and make sure everything is alright. As long as you don't call demanding a decision, I can't imagine that it would reflect poorly on you since they did promise a decision within 3 weeks.

Hi BHead-

I work for a small high end fashion shoe company- running all their retail and marketing operations, involving some domestic and int'l travel. I've been there 5 years and was a fashion buyer in SF for 3 years prior to that. I studied architecture for undergrad at UC Berkeley.

I submitted morning of but...alas...nothing...

My quickie profile: 720 GMAT / 3.6 GPA (from a top Canadian university)...background can be seen on my essay3 I guess :) ... youtube search: the many pieces of me (stern essay 3)



So nice to hear from a fellow Canadian!!! I live in Vancouver (home of the best hockey team in the world....)

I really loved your video - it seems like you have a lot to offer the Stern community. I know it's not any fun playing the waiting game, but I think alot about this timing is random. I received my interview invite on February 1st (R2 applicant - submitted on Jan 9), but many of my friends have not heard anything yet, so you're not alone.

Let us know as soon as you hear anything - I would love to be around another Canadian this fall!


Haha thanks for the kind words! I'm going to completely ignore the stuff in brackets. I'm pretty sure you have a virus :P.

Yea it would be awesome to have some Canadian pride repped at Stern! Here's to hoping I hear back with a positive response.


Got the interview invite! Going on the 20th

Out of the blue

Thanks - I've interviewed at several, including Booth (my top choice), so hopefully something works out!

Re: Stern 2012 - Calling All Applicants [#permalink] New post 09 Mar 2012, 20:20
Hello Everyone,

Congratulations to all those who got admitted.

I am a R2 applicant based in India. I still haven't heard from the adcom but quite hopeful to get a call.

I have a query with respect to the interview, which i believe is conducted on-campus throughout the admissions process. Since i am based in India and don't have a US visa, i am bit skeptical to get a visa on a short notice, if i get an interview invite. Does adcom consider this point in making the decision?

Regards
