Anyways its November 15... about 50 days left.. I will sleep, snore, day dream and sleep a bit more before I touch NYU.

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.


When I spoke with the adcom I got the same response. They wanted to know about fit and they wanted specifics. They wanted to know the who, what, when, where and why of the people you interacted with at Stern.

Are we required to answer the different parts of a question separately or can it be a combined essay where we cover all the questions asked?

It will be Avi Bueller's day off, but I will be sneaking around in LA. I will do a NYU visit after submitting the application before school closes for Thanksgiving.

Abhishek - you can answer all the questions in any order or combined as long as you answer them.

Just visited, and I got some interesting information regarding the NYU rolling admission debate. I was told by admissions that you can receive an invite to interview at any point after the november 15th deadline. After you interview, you will hear in no more than 2-3 weeks whether you got in or not. If you are not asked to interview, you will hear as late as the notification date whether you are WL or dinged. If you submit your app before the deadline, they might start processing and reviewing it before the deadline. Not that you should try and submit as early as possible like Columbia, but if you are ready then pull the trigger because it might get your app going through the hoops sooner than the other apps.

Since my app is pretty much complete, I am going to send it sooner than I had originally planned.

Other than that, great visit! I highly recommend the coffee break with a first-year student. Very personable!

I love NYU and I'm planning to apply for M.Sc. in RE (School of Continuing and Professional Studies).

Good deadline (March 15), rolling basis.

They responded impressively quick to my questions. Here is one of they answers:

Quote:
"For the 2006-2007 academic year, we accepted
about 70% of the applicants to the MS in Real Estate. The acceptance rate
tends to be high for this program because the applicants are self-selecting.
By this, I mean that the applicants tend to do a great deal of research on
the program and the admission criteria before applying. For this reason, we
receive more applications from qualified candidates. Additionally, this
program does not weigh applications against each other. If an applicant is
qualified for admission, he/she will be admitted. If the program fills,
applications received thereafter are considered for the next term."

avi, I have been to the SF consulate many times and every single time, I have been able to get what I want within 1 business day. Just go with the all the required documents and you should be done quickly.

Heh - I should have clarified. I am at Stern - MBA1. Hopefully I will be on the torch committee, which means I will get to take prospectives for lunch, to class and - if they are lucky and i/v on a thursday - beer blast.

I cannot emphasise enough how much better it is to get to visit schools on thursdays. That's when you can see whether the fit is there. After a few beers, the guard is down from everyone.

Kid,

Just saw your post, and I visited Stern on the 2nd. For the class visit, you will probalby be put into a group with other prospectives and an MBA2 will pick you up at the admissions office. I made a point to sit with my MBA2, while the other students did not. He was really cool, and gave some great information--some of which will make it into my essays. Stern seemed to give a lot of opportunities to talk to students (class visit with MBA2, coffee break with MBA1, tour with MBA2), so just take advantage of all the student interaction because they are the most honest when it comes down to it.

Finally, Isser Gallogly, the head of admissions, joined the campus tour. Of course, after the tour everyone bombarded him with questions. I hung back, talked to the MBA2 tour guide, and then started talking with him after everyone had left. It was more a conversation, which, to me, is better than a laundry list of questions. If he is on the tour, make sure you get that face time with him.

Good luck

That's a great question because I encountered that problem. There is no lunch, so definitely eat before you get there.

I went to Stern on a Tuesday as well, and the night before went to a bar in the city with come friends to watch MNF and eat some buffalo wings. The wings were awful, so I did not feel like eating before I went to Stern. Bad idea. I was so hungry during class. I inhaled a muffin after class, and that held me over. Moral of the story: eat lunch before your day at Stern.

How are you guys getting these ppl to talk to you? I have emailed at least 3 people from different clubs with some questions a week ago and I never heard anything back:( Is it just me or you too? I was in NY last month and could only do a info session as the class visit option was not available.... should I just email my questions directly to the associate director of admissions....hahah and tell her how bad the students are that they can't respond to an email?? I know they are busy with school, but I'm busy too, managing work with apps and 5 hour sleep:(

What are you guys doing with the 2nd essay? No one from Stern is writing back, what should I write about the community and my experience?:'(

Wow, long time no post uvs_mba.

I am having a difficult time with the 2nd essay as well. Not sure exactly what to do. I did have dinner with a second year (friend of a friend). But he's studying abroad this semester and nowhere to be found. I might have to leverage my visit for some business cards.

I'm sure it's difficult for you, but maybe you should do an actual class visit? That might help
