Essay 3 is pretty interesting. I am not applying to NYU, but as a fun exercise, I was thinking about what I would have done for this essay. I heard that people have sent things like paintings, sushi (All the way from Japan), worn-out army boots etc in the past. One guy asked if he could send a "personality test result" for essay 3. Hmm .. that's creative ! :roll:

Anyway, the thing to note here is that you have to tell about yourself. You can feel free to be creative. But that doesn't mean that you go so creative that you end up not telling a lot about yourself. The key is tell about yourself, not be creative. Be creative is just an added bonus, which you should think about when you know what you are going to tell.

Thoughts on Stern Infosession in San Diego [#permalink] New post 26 Sep 2007, 20:06
I'm on an infosession tour eh?

roughly 20-25 people, good mix (mostly white), 75% took the GMAT already.

Pros:
- The presenter was really engaging, funny, and smart
- They gave parking validation for the hotel (which they should have told me, since I parked far away to save money...), unlike another school...
- We did "exercises" to meet people
- The program sounded very interesting

Cons:
- The presenter talked the whole time (90 minutes straight). The one alum who showed up got to introduce herself for 3 minutes, got a gift, and then never said another thing. No Q&A, nothing.

Not much to say. I would apply to this school (because it sounds interesting) if only it had more clout in the VC/entrepreneurship field in California. But the visit was mainly informational.

Just curious, how come you applied so early? The deadline is not until the 15th and the apps will not be reviewed until then.

I don't believe it's rolling. Congrats on getting it done! If I was done, I'd submit it quickly as well.

Remember with Stern, an interview means you are very close to the finish line.

At first, I thought it was rolling, too, but someone told me it wasn't. Anyhow, I called the admissions office, and they said it was not rolling. I almost had my app done, but I'm going to wait now to finish after my visit (Oct. 2nd).

I attended an event and the adcom said it was definitely not rolling. I'm glad the deadline is not until Nov 15th which gives another month or so to interact with the school.

Strange, at the San Diego infosession, Isser said it was "rolling" admissions, except they don't start reviewing until 11/15. So after 11/15, they will give out decisions based on when they receive the application and when they read it.

Hope that clarifies things.

I got to meet a Stern adcom on Tuesday at the world tour in ATL. She emphasized finding out as much as possible about Stern. She even said to specifically refer to our conversation in the essay. I got the impression that they want people who want to attend Stern (bring up the yield) as first choice. I am glad I got to visit.

My wife has attended two NYU info sessions, and she says that she heard the adcoms specifically mentioning that the admission process is not rolling.

strange, as I clearly heard the guy (who is the admissions dean I believe?) say, "We will let you know your decision as we finish reviewing your file. We're not like the other schools that make you wait when we don't have to."

Stern is the only school that has said that. I don't know if that's "rolling", but it's definitely not all at one deadline.
