That is very true. Stern was the only school to have asked for an original transcript as part of the initial application itself, and getting that was pretty painful from India. Essay 3 and all the effort that goes behind is well acknowledged anyways. Moreover, Stern is one of the few schools which specifically ask what kind of effort did we make to learn more about the school, and if you are in the US, in turn implies that you have to visit the school.
The other reason I am feeling very low right now is because I was considering Stern as a relatively 'safe' school and being dinged without an interview sends very wrong signals. I am still trying to be optimistic and the next few weeks will be key...

I understand that man. The harder you work, the worse it feels on a ding !

I worked for *months* on my columbia app. My interview was great, I was given high marks on everything and recommended strongly for admission, but then dinged. All said and done, I surmised my score of 720 and a vanilla non IIT background was to blame. And sad, masters from a top 10 univ. with a 3.7, my publications/patents still did not set me apart from the 'IT' pool (And I'm in semiconductors/hardware anyway, very, very different from a typical IT job)...

Stern is the only school I visited, and I paid $180 just for my transcripts to be attested at the NY embassy. They charge $10/document attesting, and I had 8 separate marksheets + 1 degree certificate, not a single transcript...
With all the Stern R1 dings I see in this thread, looks like I wasted some more effort and money (EDIT:) apping here in R2!

But hey ..keep your head up ... a lot more to come, and its all for good ...

gmat_march, really scary post. It sounds like you have a very strong profile and enough to separate yourself from the notorious Indian IT demographic. Sorry to hear that you went through so much trouble with the transcripts to end up with the dreaded ding. Keep your head up though and hopefully something will work out. Where else did you apply?

Ooops ... I cam across a bit wrong .. I have apped. in Stern R2, I was ousting my frustration over my Columbia ding way early in the season ... vchhaochharia's post reminded me of that.
I am waitlisted at Cornell, was dinged at Ross & Columbia, and have app'ed to Duke & Stern in R2.

Heads up vchhaochharia - I've had 2 dings without interview. The second one is considerably easier to digest :( There is no such thing as a "safe" school anymore. What are the other schools that youve applied to ?

My fault gmat_march. I misread your post. Any idea when interview invites start being released for R2 Stern applicants?

Thank you for applying to NYU Stern. You will receive an email from NYU Stern MBA Admissions within the next 7 - 10 business days confirming the receipt of your application and providing you with a password to our secure Application Status Check website. Please note that application receipts will not be emailed prior to the application deadline. This site will allow you to monitor the status of your application throughout the admissions process. This site is available 24 hours a day and reflects the current status of your application. You will be notified via email when your status has been updated. The site is continuously updated, but it may take up to 10 business days for information to be posted once we receive it, including your supplemental materials.

This is the confirmation mail that I got after submitting my application. It has been 12 business days but I still have not received the password for the status check. Anyone else got it?

It took 17 days for the status change in my case. So, don't worry about it.
