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:
I would say stick to the word limit. It is very hard to get a point (or two) across in just 250 words but they want you to cut the fluff and be very direct.
For essay 3, if it creatively describes you then go for it, otherwise stick to the standard essay format. At the info session, the adcom representative mentioned that they do receive a lot of regular essays.
I am sure everyone is anxiously waiting for your decisions. I am a little late to join in... They are still accepting apps and I am going to apply before the end of this week.
I have a couple of questions:
1. Did u guyz strictly follow the 250 word limit? I have serious issues on this front. Both my essays are bordering on 500 words.
2. Did any one try anything fancy with essay 3? I have an idea but I dont know whether I should play safe. I am a little confused. What do you think about trying something very different?

Someone had asked a question in this thread about fordham and how it ranks. I was reading the fall 2007 thread, and found that fordham was ranked 9 (think it was a business week or msnbc ranking) among all part-time courses in the US.
The important question really to consider is the strengths of a school and how it matches up against what you want - and then go with it. That being said, Stern Langone is still without a doubt - # 1 among the PT courses.
Thanks Sixthsense. It was me who asked that question.I also had a look at the link earlier which you just send.
I have one more question.How can we send more recommendations to NYU (which can make our application stronger)? Do you think we need to ask the recommender to send it directly (as the online stuff is not in our control now).I recently got in touch with one of the visiting professors at NYU and the professor is willing to give a recommendation to me.
I found that recommenders can directly email stern. The email addresses for communication should be in the receipt email that you must have received after submitting your application. Once the recommender sends the email, in a few days you should see an update on the applicant status check website under your profile. Hope this helps. Good luck!
That sounds logical to me.Thanks Sixthsense.But actually it is a bit dicey to ask him to email up. Anyway I'll try my best to make sure he does send the recommendation.
