Just had my interview with a member of the admissions committee. It was about 30 minutes long and very friendly/casual. It went by really quick. They gave me a Stern t-shirt when I signed-in as well as a packet of information about Stern that is specifically tailored to my interests. The interviewer had a glass of water on her desk waiting for me when I walked into the room. She started by giving me a background about herself and then jumped into questions. Questions were as follows (not necessarily in this order but it's the best I could recall from memory):

- Walk me through your resume
- What have you learned in your current job that will help you in your future goals?
- Describe what you do at your job
- If your goals do not pan out, do you have alternative career choices?
- What do you consider to be your greatest achievement at work? Greatest failure?
- Can you reiterate your short-term goals?
- Is there anything you want to tell me that I have not already asked you?
- What do you plan on doing at Stern while you are here?
- What convinced you to apply to Stern?
- Do you have any questions for me?

As most of you probably know, the interviews are NOT blind. The interviewer has thoroughly read your application beforehand and will ask you questions about your goals and ambitions. Make sure you have a thorough knowledge of the school, its programs and culture, extracurricular activities, etc. Do your research please. Stern is huge on "fit". She told me that it sounds like I knew a lot about Stern already and "did [my] homework".

She told me to expect a decision back before the holidays - i.e. in two weeks or less. Talk about fast.

seriously???

I'm sure both have great backgrounds, but how about: "fit with Stern", "post MBA goals", "Why MBA", etc. Essays (as well as recommendations, ECs, etc.) ARE important!

@cwhs: Thanks for offering to support. Any tips/techniques please do share.
Could you please share your background information? Schools applied? what made you choose Stern?

-Cheers


You're welcome prabshan. I have a background in IT consulting, and though I'm originally from Europe I've been living in the States for a long time. I had a decent GMAT score (see to the left), strong extra-curriculars, and apparently good essays. I went to an average school for undergrad... I was admitted to Stern and Tuck in the end, and withdrew from Booth's waitlist.

As to why I chose Stern... I'm looking to get into finance after graduation, and Stern is just one of those schools that absolutely shine at finance. They are just a subway ride away from the Wall Street so they have extremely good connections with the people that matter. Also, I found them to be true to their down-to-earth down-to-business motto. People here are great communicators and they are all very outgoing. They also happen to be very accomplished, which helps with being down-to-business. Tuck is also great with being down-to-earth but it's location doesn't even compare to Stern's if you want to be in the middle of the action.

Tips/techniques... Remember that the eyes that will be reviewing your application are very highly trained. Stern's admissions department is full of very dedicated individuals who read thousands of applications each year. Many of the schools use current students to do the first scan-through, but that's not the case with Stern. So an application that makes it to an interview in one school may fail at Stern because they notice something with your app that only a trained eye can catch (an inconsistency between the dates on your resume and the employment dates on your application, for example). Read and re-read the application. Then have someone else read and re-read it. My girlfriend caught so many mistakes of mine that I would never catch because I looked at the same document maybe 20 times and small mistakes become invisible after a certain point.

Also the creative essay is very important. Keep it original but short. Tell a story of who you are, and not what you think they want to hear. Once you write it, ask it to yourselves "could someone else have written this?" If the answer is yes, you probably didn't catch the most important aspect of the essay... It has to be unique to YOU.

This is the microsite for our 2-week pre-term, called Launch 2011:
http://launch.stern.nyu.edu/

There's a schedule on there for the two weeks and bios of the various speakers. It's been really interesting and a lot of fun - with a surprisingly large focus on social impact and innovation. My favourite speaker was probably Cory Booker, Mayor of Newark, New Jersey, who was very inspiring. The social events have also been great - all the usual happy hours plus a very grand dinner on Ellis Island (Stern basically arranged exclusive access to the whole place for an evening), via a close-up of the Statue of Liberty. I think we're going to the US Open tennis next week, among other things.


Here's a brief summary video from Day 1 of Launch:
http://vimeo.com/28073186

Day 2 is there as well and I'm sure more will be cropping up on that channel over the coming days. There have been a lot of video cameras around the place so I know they have a lot of footage to choose from!


Not connected to Launch, but I also came across this recently:
http://sternalumni.nyu.edu/s/1068/Group ... &pgid=2371

It's a link to an alumni event held in London, England earlier this summer. There are some good videos on there, including a very interesting (and surprisingly funny) speech by Gordon Brown, former Chancellor and Prime Minister of the UK and now NYU's inaugural 'distinguished global leader in residence'.


Hope some of this is interesting for those considering applying to Stern!

Congrats!
I actually visited Stern for the first time today and loved it!


The visit actually made all the difference for me. The place has a real buzz to it.

Just to let people know, one of Stern's professors was awarded the Nobel Prize in Economics this week. Everyone's pretty pleased as that's now 3 current Stern faculty with Nobel Prizes (the other two are Robert Engle and Michael Spence):

http://www.stern.nyu.edu/experience-ste ... ze-release

It's a very strong faculty at the moment, particularly for economics and finance. These names are probably worth dropping in your application (and/or Damodaran, Silber, Okun, some others), to show you're up to date with what's happening.

Great! Make sure you visit the school, contact current students to get their perspectives, and do your homework. It'll pay dividends when it comes to essays. This is true for any school, but Stern will take notice if you've taken your time to learn about the school, and know why it's special for you.


Hi cwhs,

I am working in Mumbai, India. There was an event by Stern admissions team in Mumbai but I was out of town for work and hence could not attend that event. Also, I've searched the website for options to connect with alumni but haven't found any such option. Within my contacts, I don't know anyone who has attended Stern or knows someone who has attended Stern. I've read many student blogs and other websites (including gmatclub) for information on Stern. Will this be sufficient for essay 2? Can I contact you to learn some more about Stern?

Thanks


Did you try to reach out to the student ambassadors? They are there to help out with your questions.

http://www.stern.nyu.edu/programs-admis ... /index.htm

I am perfectly okay with answering your questions too but if you go through them it is enough proof that you've done your work. If you rather reach out to me instead, send me a private message and ask your questions.

Hi Stern applicants! FYI if you're applying to Stern through the Consortium Graduate Study in Management (CGSM), hop over to the Consortium 2012 Forum and Update Your Profile to reflect that you are applying through the Consortium.

It's simple. Just select your school as "Consortium, the", then indicate which specific institution(s) you'll be applying to and the Consortium round you'll be applying in. You can do all of this easily through the handy 'Add to Your Schools' link on the front page of the Consortium 2012 Forum.

We have a special analytics specifically for those candidates applying via Consortium and lots of useful tips for your application and assessment of your candidacy.

Cheers!

Yes! Email received 11am NY time.

Only seem to be times available in December though, which is going to be a struggle to get to NY from Europe for. What with work etc.

just got admitted! pretty excited but it turns out that no cosigner loans are only for Indian and Belgian students. the financial aid page on the regular website makes it reads as if there is one program dedicated only to Indian students but there is another for students from other countries...

I thought I was too candid during my interview but it seems like everything worked out ok.

I think they really are interested in "fit" during these interviews so show you know why you want to go to Stern in detail. For example have a list of a a few classes or activities that Stern offers that really appeal to you and why.

But really I'd advise being honest and trying to explain coherently why you would want to go to Stern.

2 months and I still haven't heard a peep about my application. At this point my sense is that they've gone through their interviews, acceptances, waitlists, and rejections for the round 1 applicants who they know for sure how to stack up. For applicants in their grey zone, I think we'll be judged against the Round 2 apps flooding in this weekend, before a decision is made. That's why they probably have that 1 month overlap between Round 2 deadline (jan 15) and Round 1 notification (feb 15). Essentially we've been "deferred" to Round 2. I might be completely off here but logically it seems to make the most sense....I wish these schools would be a bit more open about their application process.
