SV6:

To answer your second question. Yes, you have to be employed to be able to participate in the Part Time program. If your company gives you the time off while being employed with them, that will probably work. I would check with admin.

I am also in a similar situation where I am tossing the 86k cost of attending versus the career benefit I will gain from the MBA. A little worried as it is a huge investment of time/money/energy.

Funny how I wanted it so bad and now i have all the misgivings in the world.
:roll:

Got in!!

But i am still thinking about career services that Part time students are offered with..

Those who got in, how are you guys planning about your post mba career. Are you going to stay in current jobs? I am right now in IT but interested in consulting job in Healthcare industry. Since part-timers are not allowed to take participate in Fulltime recruiting, is it easy to get into the consulting once MBA is completed? Anyone who is currently at Stern through some light on this? I know its difficult to change career through part-time but really interested if there is any change in stern career services which can helpout students in this aspect.

Also, is anyone interested in Outgoing Exchange International Program offered by Stern? I am interested in this, but not sure how this will work for part-timers. My employer will not allow me to take break for 6 months. In that case i have to leave my current job and look for another once i complete the semister outside US. But doesn't stern require to have part-timers employeed during course work... :?

Thanks for the DB update. So nice for the admits to keep checking this post and helping the hopeful =)
Is it fair to assume that there are 250 seats for spring?
BTW Congrats to all the admits!
Also regarding job switches, my assumption is that the nature of a Part-time program as opposed to an EMBA is that there is no or minimal dependency on your job & employer. The only thing is to be able to afford it over time.

The wait continues for me...

Does anybody knows what happens if you attend NYU part time and then lose your job? I am concerned that I could lose my job within 6 months after beginning the part time program, given the economic environment and my employer's dependence on high risk financing.

Does NYU tell you to find a new job and kick you out if you cant find a new job? I imagine it would be very difficult to find a new job in this environment. I'm sure I'm not the only one in this situation.


I don't think NYU cares your "job" as long as you can pay tuition.

I agree with welldone. During my visit to Stern I met atleast a couple of part time students who left their work as their employers werent flexible or chose to quit to focus on study.

How long does it typically take for the Kroll verification process to be completed ? Do they call the main number and ask for HR ?

Hi guys,

My verification was done real quick...in about a week. I got admitted back in early Oct or so.

GL!

As far as PT vs. FT. As most know, FT is a better bet for career switchers, but it is a tough bet given the economic environment. But hey...getting older in your current field is not going help your new field. I think you need to go for it.

Hi Guys,

Did you receive any confirmation from admissions etc saying your verification was completed successfuly ? I didnt get anything but I do see my name in the current student DB.

Should I assume "No news is good news" ?

Thanks a ton. This is super useful information. The waiting game continues. I am getting worried that Stern is still accepting applications for the spring '09. Anybody here in the same waitlist boat?

You will get an email from NYU Stern that says Welcome to the program once verfication is complete. Your name will be in the database once you pay your deposit. It doesnt depend on verification.

I am still wait listed. I think it is more or less "game over" (although, I want to believe it is not the case). My understanding is that you have ~250 positions for spring and they are still accepting applications.

Although, the EMBA admissions contacted me if I would be interested in their program. Because of the sponsorship situation I had to respectfully decline and I am waiting to hear anything from Langone.

Still 240 at 9:22am.
My name is not yet on the list. I was accepted Wednesday and I sent my deposit confirmation yesterday. I might not be the only one... so expect a higher number to show up shortly.
Thought it was 300 admitted students for Spring? I remember seeing it on the Langone website somewhere.
