Contacting Stern's AdCom about Late Part Time MBA Deadline? [#permalink] New post 26 Mar 2012, 22:32
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.

You can certainly contact NYU and let them know that you have been accepted to another program but prefer NYU. You are right that there is no guarantee that they will make their decision earlier, but it is usually helpful to let them know that you are accepted elsewhere. Remember to be polite, deferential, and appreciative with anyone you speak with there - from the secretary to the provost.
