Thanks Beagles. Anything special on the resume?


I've had good career progression, but otherwise nothing special...

Same here. I didn't mention a specific company or title, but I did talk about the responsibilities I wanted, the industry I desired, and how adding the MBA to my work experience and personal history would help me achieve that goal.


Ditto for my essay. Can't get into too much detail in 250 words.

Thanks guys. Few more questions.

In the second essay."Why part time MBA?" did you focus more on why part time or why NYU?

How specific were you in your reasons?
Did you mention anything about contributing to Stern?

Did you highlight your accomplishments in your essays or was that only in the resume?

Thanks much for your help!

A while ago, someone posted a link to a Facebook group created for those who were admitted to NYU.

Question for those who know: Is this group still active? If so, how does one join that group?

Thanks.

The group is kinda active. I mean... there are a lot of folks out there. But, no real discussions.

Once u get ur name into the students DB, you'll get an invite.

My second essay was pretty straightforward. My reasons for part-time over full-time were not earth shattering: (1) career-sustaining vs. career-changing and (2) financial (wage sacrifices, reimbursement, etc). My final point in the essay focused on lifestyle, which answered why weeknights over weekends (the second part of the question).

I threw in something at the end of my first essay about why NYU so I didn't feel I needed to repeat that in the second essay. I also did not highlight career milestones/accomplishments in any of the essays; I left all of that to the resume portion of the application.

Finally, I did submit the optional 4th essay. Here, I stressed my interest in the program as well as how I feel I would be able to contribute to the Stern community given the opportunity. In the end, I think it served almost as a cover letter and tied the entire application together.

What I felt is most important in the essays and is repeated on other message boards here on GMATClub is that you are genuine in your responses and not trying to tell the AdCom what you think they want to hear. I fell into that trap in early drafts but some great feedback from my reviewers quickly turned my words into real essays.

Hope this helps. Good luck to those still waiting/waitlisted. The latest count is 232 in the new student database so there is still reason for hope.

Have you checked your Stern e-mail account yet? I believe your Facebook group invite will be sent there.

No, the invite should come on the same email id that you put in your application for all NYU communications.

I would recommend that you email the admin of the group to join.

Yes. I've checked it. Nothing there. I guess, I'll wait...

P.S. On a related note, congratulations to all those who got admitted today! :)
