Question for R1ers ..
When it comes to mentioning the courses/specializations that you are interested in at stern, did you guys choose to write this in essay 1 or 2 ? To me it makes more sense to write them in #1, so I can relate that to my goals ...but part (3) of essay #2 confuses me ...


no love for me, anyone ? :(
I'm ending up just under 800 words with all the stuff ....
I'm planning a visit first week of December, about the time they close class visits :), anyone else planning the same ..? looks like I'm pretty late in the game ...:(


I chose to write about that stuff in Essay 1 because it flowed a bit better and because I didn't feel like there was enough room in Essay 2 to hit the points I wanted to hit about my planned courses/specializations. Either is probably fine, but addressing it right off the bat when they ask you "Why an MBA" and about your professional aspirations seems to be an effective way to do it.

Rolling admission question [#permalink] New post 25 Nov 2007, 19:27
Hi,

I was wondering why Stern has deadlines for the apps if the school does Rolling admission? I mean, they review each app on a first come, first serve basis but why are there 3 deadlines?? Are they Round admission?

NYU's vague rule of attesting transcripts from your home consulates is single handedly going tp push my application process to R2

I have to go to SF to te Indian consulate to get my transcripts verified.. waht a hoax..

and knowing how the consulate works.. I have no hopes of a quick turn around


One question regarding this .
I'm going to the Houston Indian Couns., but read this on their web-site:

" General guidelines for Consular Attestation of Power of Attorney/Documents, including academic certificate, Birth/Death/Marriage Certificates, Driving Licenses and other documents:
- ..
- Documents/Certificates originating in India should be authenticated by the Consular Section of the Ministry of External Affairs, New Delhi before submission to the Consulate for attestation. ...
- .."

Does the sfo couns. have similar requirements ? I don't see how I can get my transcripts to India and back for this ...I haven't yet called them and asked how particular are they about this, but I'm assuming they are ....
any comments from desis who have done this ?

I wanted to do the same thing at Houston, so called them and they said I needed to have the Delhi verification done prior to coming there. Having no clue on how to go about doing that, I gave up on it and just got my official transcripts from the school.

Thanks dude ..
I did not read any such requirement on the NY couns. website....I guess I'll have to extend my ny visit to 2 days to get transcripts attested from the embassy ...
Getting original transcript is just not an option from the university in India I come from ..wish my masters transcripts sufficed ..this is such a pain...sigh.

Ok. The San Francisco consulate does attest educational degrees. This would also mean transcripts (I am assuming - I never heard of any school asking for degrees to be attested - it would be degree certificate or transcript).. I attached the Indian consulate pdf form ..hope this helps.

both processes (asking for transcripts from India or attesting from the consulate) are painful.. I guess a quick trip to SF will be easier for me..

Well, in my case atleast, I do not have a 'degree certificate', my degree itself is the proof of degree conferral and carries the date/institute of completion. Stern's site mentions this case...
You r lucky not to be in texas ..:)

Does anybody know when will Stern start releasing the interview decisions? Also, will Stern finalise the interview list by their notification date of 15th Feb or are they supposed to release the final admit results by then?

I believe you can still hear about interview invites up til the 15th. Don't know when they will begin releasing invites though.

Did anyone get an email saying that transcript is missing and app incomplete?

I sent my transcript weeks ago and Im positive it should've definitely be there by now. I am not sure what happened? If it is lost in the mail, will sending one right away on Monday be good enough or am i screwed?

My status still shows as: "We have received your application and it is currently being processed and presented to the Admissions Committee for review. "
I did apply on the 15th Nov, the last day, but still its a month now and it still does not show complete and that it has gone under review or anything. What about others here? Have your changed? When did you guys apply?
Thanks.

Mine's the same. I don't think it goes to "Complete." The blurb just says, "If your application is complete by the deadline, you will receive initial notification on or before the notification date." I take that to mean, if you submitted everything on time, you'll find out about an interview by the Feb notification date.

The current message says that the application is being BOTH processed AND presented to the committee. I think that emcompasses everything.

I applied on the 13th.

Congrats faceman. I guess you are right, based on your example itself, that you could directly get an answer from the current status of presenting to ad com for review.
