Hi EssaySnark,
Can you please share some deep real-life insights on how NY can be beneficial and will add value towards CBS MBA grads with RE focus both during MBA and post-MBA? And how NY is as far as RE industry is concerned because my post-MBA ST and LT goals are in RE...

All the information I've about NY, is mostly from Internet/Newspaper/Journals...and neither I've lived or worked in NY.So, I was thinking that you may share some solid practical information on the same to fill-up this void at least to some extent...

Look forward to hear from you.

P.S: Happy Independence day in advance!

Hey debayan222 - Happy Independence Day to you too and thanks for the question!

We hate to do this to you but... we can't really answer the first one. That's for you to find out in your research for Columbia Business School! If it wasn't literally an essay question that they've asked, we'd be more inclined to answer - 'cuz there's a lot we could say about that. :-D

We can say that Columbia has a strong real estate program, so you're being smart by targeting them for that. The NYC real estate market is something to explore - it's a bit of a different animal compared to economies and markets in other cities. You'll need to do some digging in terms of job prospects - and obviously it totally depends on what you intend to do in RE since it's a very big category.

You have the right idea, in terms of hitting people up for their opinions and insights - that can be a great way to gather some info about this school and the city. If it weren't for our pesky policy of never telling people what to write in their essays we would surely be able to do more with it. :-)

(The real risk of us answering a question like that publicly is if we do, then EVERYBODY WILL WRITE THE SAME THING IN THEIR DARNED ESSAY. It won't help you nor would it help them. And we won't answer a question like that privately 'cuz ... well, we just won't.)

Good luck with it! If you have another question for us not to answer we hope you'll post it!!! :-D

PS we're totally kidding, hope that's clear.

Hey Essaysnark,
Thanks for your reply.

Well,first of all what I wanted to know from you is ALL raw information nothing else...and I guess that is something you can gather from talking to people especially experts who've deep insights.I honestly don't see any harm to it - but a policy is a policy and you'll not gonna change that either for me or anybody else! I completely understand that.

Let me please clarify that I never asked for direct essay inputs...However, my apologies if it's improperly communicated!

Re risk projection- I think you've an essay evaluation service here for us and through that the same (although sanitized) will be posted on the forum...that too is public Sir!

Anyways, frankly I'd have loved to get some thoughts from you through PM (I think policy shouldn't be so stern that it affects the community :wink: ).

Thanks again for your candid response.

We're big believers in providing accurate, actionable info and insights about how to apply to bschool and you won't find a greater proponent of sharing information. In our essay reviews however we only ever publish BAD ESSAYS - if someone submits an essay that's really good, we will talk about what they did well and explain their goodness in our own words but we will never publish the actual draft.
