Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
Do we need to complete the plagiarism tutorial, quant test and tuition payment before we are eligible to receive it?
I haven't gotten my ID, but I just confirmed that I'm able to as of now. I paid all in loans (ouch) and had completed my MPN and entrance counseling a week or so ago. I passed the quant test and plagiarism tutorial around the same time, although they have no way of knowing who completed plagiarism yet, as our proof is just a printout that's not linked to our name or NYU ID. I think the ID eligibility is just based on whether or not you're officially registered for classes.
To check to see if you're registered: Go to http://home.nyu.edu/ then log in, click on the Academics tab, and look under Blackboard Courses. I have Firms & Markets and Stats & Data Analysis, which means I got the Blue group! Hurrah!
If you see courses here, go ahead and call the NYUCard Center at (212) 443-2273 (hit 0 to talk to a person) to verify that you're all set to get your ID. Good luck!!
thanks for the info! I just checked and I'm in the blue group as well
I completed all three (plagiarism, quant, tuition (loans)), but I would assume that once you've submitted your registration and burser forms (& payment clears/loans are accepted) you would be considered officially registered (and subsequently eligible to obtain your ID), regardless of the quant/ plagiarism
All the best Pranilrao, check with CaptainWinters. I checked my NYU home and am confirmed for Yellow core (I have a busy Monday - also CFEs for yellow core profs are a tad better). Any Yellows here? I am yet to finish the quant test though. I am going to lose my freedom for the next three years, figured I can push studying a bit further.
Got an email stating that Kroll had not yet been able to verify my degree from India. According to the email I would still be allowed to enroll in the classes pending full resolution of this verification. I know that some folks were in a similar situation last fall. Will check with them to get an indication of the timeline.
Also, I completed the quant test and accepted the financial aid package this weekend. Now I need to complete the plagarism tutorial and the loan counselling at for my FAFSA
Got an urgent email from adm chair that the info I provided in my app about my previous employer does not match with Kroll's verification results. Holy crap....They say I have 5 days to appeal or to withdraw my app....The report also says that kroll tried to contact me but I did not respond...The reality is that kroll did contact me 1.5 months back & I reverted to Kroll with proper documentation within hours...Fail to understand how incompetent & careless these agencies are...anyway, I have appealed & forwarded the same email (which I had forwarded to Kroll) to adm chair. Hoping for a positive response soon. argh.....
I wouldn't worry too much about Kroll. They are famous because their background check is thorough and extensive, not because they are 100% accurate. They are working with limited data that may be available so it is up to you to provide the rest of the data for verification. (usually they contact you directly).
For example, when I went through my background check, they had wrong date for my graduation year (for UG) based on their findings and I had to email them a scanned copy of unofficial transcript to prove my graduation yr (as stated on my resume).
Regarding the employer issue, quick way to resolve this is to go back to your federal tax return, copy the W-2 attached in the back with your employer name on it. That's one way to prove it.
Regarding the school issue, I am not really sure how they do it in India. But technically, NYU did get a copy of your transcript so it shouldn't be that BIG of an issue. Do schools in India provide same kind of transcript/proof of graduation service via college's registrar office? If so, I would contact them right away.
I would not worry too much about KROLL either. MY HR told me that they just send a fax, and the employer is supposed to respond. If the fax is lost or if they don’t bother to respond then I am not sure how they take it forward, especially if the recommender is not from that employer. Regarding education verification in India, I contacted my college and they told me that they diligently send all KROLL verifications (they have received many KROLL verifications before) and they have not yet received mine. It’s been more than a month since I sent my transcripts via email to them.
Congrats to everyone getting Kroll verifications back! Such a great feeling. To all those waiting, good luck for a speedy response.
Almontas33, I would offer to help if I didn't need tutoring myself! I have some major brushing up to do before classes start, but I still passed the quant exam with 95%, and I'm sure you can too. If you can get a rough idea of how the review problems were solved, you'll be able to figure out the exam problems; the actual test is significantly easier than the review questions.
I'm heading to campus tomorrow to get my ID...very excited! I also have to pick up a Stern coffee mug or something to give to my supervisor in Chicago, who's currently a part-timer at Booth. Nothing like a little rivalry!
Some more updates from my end since I last wrote on this forum.
> Kroll goofed up during my verification & provided wrong report to Stern. I got in touch with Kroll as well as Stern & shared the documentary evidence of my previous employer. Got a response from Stern that all is ok within 2 days. After going thru this, I now have a fair idea of how kroll works. Stern has been very helpful during this entire process.
> Got my 2 shots of MMR done (a gap of 28 days is necessary between the 2 shots). Had the doctor fill up the health form. Mailed the filled up form along with MMR proof to NYU before 15-Dec.
> Took the quantitative assessment test an hour back. Scored 100% in my first attempt. The questions are of decent difficulty and are mostly from Logarithms, differential calculus & basic algebra. Note - There is no time limit for the test. So people can continue working on the test for 20 days before hitting the final submit button.
> Registered for pre term by filling up the form on the web site.
yet to do
> Take the plagiarism tutorial/test > pay the fees by e-check > Submit the Bursar form finally
All above are to be done by Jan-06. Am planning to finish it off during Christmas weekend.
Wanted to wave 3 classes, but if you are waving more then 2 courses you need a special code from admissions. Unfortunately they are closed until Jan 3! What a bummer! Hopefully i will be able to get permission on time!
