Contacting Stern's AdCom about Late Part Time MBA Deadline? [#permalink] New post 26 Mar 2012, 22:28
I live in San Francisco, but really want to relocate to NYC and attend Stern's part-time program. The problem is, Stern's notification date isn't until Aug 15th (and I assume classes start early September). I've already applied, in hopes that they will notify me before notification date, but that isn't guaranteed.

I have already been accepted in USC, which isn't my first choice, but it is a great alternative. Additionally, I am trying to network and look for job opportunities in both regions, but I don't want to make a decision on a job until I know where I will be attending school, which is my first priority.

My question is, should I try to contact the AdCom and ask them to make an earlier decision? Will they listen? Given NYU's late notification date, I can't be the only applicant in this situation, right? I wrote about my situation in the optional essay, but I'm afraid they wont read it until it's too late. Would it be pushy/rude to call them and inform them of my situation? NYU is my first choice, but I am afraid I will have to settle for my second choice if I don't hear of a decision earlier than Aug.

Hi,

As per the information available on Stern's website, the initial notification date is 01st August. This means that you will not receive any information before that or see any changes in your application status before that. Although there may be other students like you but as the applications are accepted till July, I doubt that your application will be treated any different from others.

Still you can atleast write to Adcom mentioning about the job offers in two places and that an admit in Stern would help you in deciding about that. but don't keep your hopes too high for the early notification.

Regards

Hello, im not sure if this might help you but i think last year the school started accepting people around June. This may be helpful for you figuring out dates.
