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:
Congrats to everyone who has been admitted! I'm the VP of first year students in the part time student government so hopefully I can help answer some of your questions. I saw a number of questions about the waitlist. I was a reapplicant and I was waitlisted both times but was accepted off of the list the second time so don't give up hope! IMO, the best way to improve your chances during the waitlist period is to improve your GMAT score. Promotions at work also helps. The weeknight program tends to be more fun than the weekend program mostly because of the student profile in those groups. The weeknight program has younger students who tend to socialize after class more. The weekend students are older and either travel a lot or have families. You'll find that for a part time program, we socialize and network almost as much as the full timers which is one of the many things that make this program great. Looking forward to meeting you guys at the pre-term happy hour!
I referenced past posts prior to applying and thought it helpful to see other individuals' profiles. Wanted to pass on mine for future applicants.
White Male Age: 26 WE: 3.5 years financial services GPA: 3.5 - liberal arts major from competitive private university (some quant coursework with decent grades) GMAT: 640 (significantly higher in verbal) Good essays, presumably good recs, and some extra curriculars
Grades/GMAT were obviously nothing special. In my subjective opinion, I gained admission because my app reflected that I had researched the program, had interests outside of work, and was genuine in my essays. Lastly, I submitted my materials the day before the deadline, heard back in mid October, and will be attending.
The DB count has not been posted as far as I can tell.
Me: Japanese female (moved to US in 2001) GPA: 3.88 from international school (International Relations) GMAT: 680 (Q48, V35) TOEFL: 103 WE: 7 years - Strategic planning, multinational trading and investment firm Good essays, strong recommendation letters, lots of extracurriculars in Japan and US
I applied on the original deadline of 9/15, got waitlisted on 11/5, retook the GMAT on 11/30 (previous score: 580), got accepted on 12/11. I also received the package from Stern yesterday and started the enrollment process.
Good luck to all who are waiting, and I look forward to meeting everyone in January!
It looks like the stern site is no longer showing the list of incoming students to you guys? Previously, accepted students can see who's in their incoming class which is why people are asking for a Database count (to see how many spots are left).
