Hey guys, more questions about stern, great if you guys can help out.

1) I don't see anywhere online to upload the scanned transcript?? Is that right or am I on crack? I've sent the official copy already from my undergrad.

2) Stern doesn't have any essays about leadership, teamwork, etc. Where do you guys talk about that stuff? Essay 1?

3) I've heard some rumors that stern is regarded as second rate to columbia is there any truth to that??? I wouldn't want to go anywhere that's got a weak reputation...


Thanks!!

Stern wants official copies with that cover sheet attached with it.

Hmm, maybe they're not so keen on leadership as other schools. Either way, I think it goes in essay #1, but can go in any of the essays.

Rather than listen to others' opinions, you should do your own research. Talk to some of the Stern students.

craaaaap...that sheet is not absolutely crucial is it? I had my undergrad (from US) send it directly to NYU...that should be fine right? It would make a lot more sense than to have them send it to me overseas, and then me send it back to the US.

Who knows? I doubt it's crucial at all, it didn't request much info on it. I sent it to my undergrad and they sent it back to me in a sealed, stamped on the flap, envelope.

SO, I can't even be sure that that sheet is even in the envelope.

I paid for an extra transcript and when it got back to me, I opened to make sure the coversheet was inside and filled out correctly. I paid for that peace of mind at the cost of a Starbuck coffee. :-D

Why is NYU so cheap with its essay word limits? I know that other schools also have word limits, and I am sure we all go over the limit within the 10% range but NYU states it so damn explicitly even when you are trying to upload those essays on the website..... just made me furious that why do u guys have to rub it in my face..... that we are very serious about the word limit. Isn't the message I am trying to get across more important than the word limit...haha

Seriously guys help me out... I am not too much over the word limit, just have around 10% more than the word limits for all the 3 essays... are you guys struggling with this for NYU too?

Haha, I was just thinking about the same thing. I managed to get my essay 2 and 3 within the word limit, but there is just no way I can reduce my essay 1 further...it is about 5% above the limit and I am gonna upload it as such. Do you know if they actually penalise you for going above the limit?

I actually don't know whether they penalize or not, but I know that I am going over their stated limit, obviously not over the board... so I am like 30-40 words over for each of the 3 essays, which is still under 10% for each... so I am going to go ahead with it.. I need a break from this and I can't cut anymore. I have edited so much that I just want to upload it now and get it over with before I lose my message...lol!

Btw, are you putting the actual question too? I have put the actual question too, but I am hoping that should be ok....

Still struggling with Essay 3, might go with R2 if i don't finish it....you guys all writing traditional essays or doing something creative?

I don't understand why they don't let us upload stuff for essay 3...I asked adcom and they said if you are doing anything that's not an traditional essay, you'd have to send it in via snail mail in a package...so you cannot upload graphics or pics or anythings.....can someone confirm this???

Anyway, what's the final deadline? is it midnight of Nov 15?

Thanks.

Really? Is it true you can't upload graphics, even if it's in PDF form?

I'd like to know the deadline also. Is it the midnight of 14-15, or 15-16?

I think it will be midnight the 15th.

The word limits are tight because... I don't know. Same way that Stanford's are ridiculously long. Makes you think, and forces you out of the standards.

Essay three... I am looking forward to seeing some of those. I hope they'll let me. I remember the moment I saw my essay three on the table in my i/view...

The probable reason for essay three being words or post is because some people go absurdly creative. I have heard some ridiculous tales of inventivity from our my year.

What's i/view?

If it is second rate to Columbia in your mind, or even worse "weak", don't apply. You certainly wouldn't fit in.

I can't answer this question objectively - if you don't want to go to anywhere considered "second rate" why are you applying to more than one school? Or is it a one way street?

I would completely disagree with your questions and could point to several people I know who discarded Columbia to come to Stern. But I am not sure that is what matters to you here. The issue is that if YOU don't want to go to a school, it is really a waste of time, effort and money on everyones part for you to even bother applying.

I mean, your thought process is also a little like saying you would only work for Goldman because the others are inferior through being tarnished by subprime. In one hand, it is a very subjective assessment. In the other hand, it is a good way about going being unemployed.

I'm sorry - I am in a pretty nasty mood right now due to a lack of sleep.
