I do not think NYU cares. Unless someone's financial plan is not feasible.

Employer sponsored candidates still need GMAT & Essays everything to show they are really into the MBA. If they just want to get their tickets punched, adcom should be able to identify at least "some" of them.

Does any one know if indicating employer reimbursement helps or hurts chances of admissions.

While I think a guaranteed source of income for the university should make the candidate look more favorable, I also think that employer sponsored candidates may not compete as much as self sponsored candidates. Thereby reducing overall quality of the work accomplished. Again this is just my thoughts and I could be wrong.

I just wonder what NYU thinks or if they don't care at all.

Everything in your stats looks good. Plus Stern likes reapplicant. I think you are pretty much in assuming you did not blow your essays.

Is any one excited about the last episode of "Lost" .

This season I had three of my favt shows come to an end. 24, ugly betty and Lost. Lost was the best among them. Although I picked replacements for them - Community and Parks and Recreation, they will not come close to Lost.

May be it will give me some time to study if I get into an MBA program in the Fall.

To a previous poster: I too am looking forward to Lost! Big time!

To another prior poster: I was pretty direct in the beginning of my "why part-time essay." I acknowledged I could not meet my financial commitments to my family while pursuing an MBA full-time. I don’t know the strategy of the whole thing, but I assume that it’s true for almost everyone applying to a part-time MBA program, right? It's true for me.

To another prior poster: I have no evidence for or against it, but I think, if anything, it would be a slight edge to have employer support (essentially someone from your company isn't just writing a nice recommendation, they are putting their putting their money where their mouth is. Talk is cheap. At least that is how I see it).

I don't have my application information in front of me, so this is from memory...

33/m/White
Extra: I have a PhD in Pharmacology, and I'm a registered pharmacist
GPA: 3.149 undergrad (Pharmacy major, large state school)/ Graduate 3.6ish? (Also from a large state school; I can't remember my graduate GPA off the top of my head)
GMAT: 710 (I don't remember the breakdown Q/V off the top of my head, although I know my percentile was higher in verbal). AWA 6.
Recommendations: Good, I hope (I can't read them, and even if I could it would be subjective. I did get one from my supervisor so that at least shouldn’t raise any flags for the admissions group).
Essays: Good, I hope (Also subjective. I can at least objectively say I worked hard on them! I also have a pretty clear vision for why I need an MBA for my career, and was able to articulate that in the essays.)
Work Exp: 4.5 years total. Last 3.5 years with a large healthcare company with a promotion in 2008.
Program: Weekend only.

My biggest concerns about my application are my undergrad GPA, the weekend only restriction I face, and lack of prior financial training. I also worry a crummy economy raises the the bar for admission.

Good luck everyone! I only applied to NYU and Rutgers, and the deadline to accept an offer of admission from Rutgers already passed. So now, I have all my eggs in the NYU part-time weekend program basket, so I obviously hope I get in. I know everyone else does too, and I hope I get to meet everyone who posted here who plans to go to the weekend program!

drsparnum, your profile looks strong too. How is your EC?

You've got a PHD so I guess academically you are good. I have similar GPAs.

I assume my recs are good too. But they are busy people so I do not know whether they write a lot for me or not.

Re: NYU Stern-Langone Fall 2010 [#permalink] New post 21 May 2010, 14:02
After reading how the Fall 2009 class ultimately played. I noticed a couple interesting things about the NYU acceptance/notification process.

They're still accepting applications past the deadline? Perhaps it's a way to boost their class profile? Students that got potentially dinged from other schools of their choice (i.e. a HBS/CBS/Wharton, etc) but still have exemplary profiles could still apply to stern and in essence bump up the class profile? Just a theory but sounds fairly plausible.

Also, I read reports that despite a notification deadline of August 1st, they may just notify you on August 1st of the status of your app. In reading last year, A LOT of students got waitlisted on 8/1 and then ultimately got dinged in September. From what I saw from the posts, not too many apps got dinged right out, so from what it seems they can leave you in limbo for an extended period of time......

I wanted to ping everyone's opinion and take on this as some of us have other decisions pending. Given first semester's tuition (and a lost of enrollment deposits) is due in August for most programs, I wanted to see everyone's take in staying in and risking it vs. pulling out to matriculate at another program.

ph69917 - I think a lot depends on how confident you are on your profile and what you want to do with your MBA. If the other program is not as competitive as that of Stern's it doesn't hurt to ask for an extension.

If you got in Wharton or something.. I would just take it. But it depends on what you want to do with your MBA and if the other school can provide that pathway.

yeah, it stinks. I wish we have choices like Chicago Booth Vs Kellogg. Unfortunately Wharton and CBS do not offer PT MBAs.

It is surprising that New York being the financial capital of the world, doesn't have a lot of options.

I wonder if they will share the third essay of the selected students with their classmates. That will be funny.

The first admits don't go out until early June right?

So I'm passing the time by doing community service, hanging out with friends and catching up on all the tv (re: trashy reality tv) I missed while I was studying for the GMATs.

Speaking of self-sponsored, I need to finish up my FAFSA.

Does anyone know if there are scholarships for PT students? I've been Googling, but nothing has come up.

Lastly, does anyone know of someone that is currently in Langone. It would be great to get a bit of their view on this thread and have them comment on some of our questions.

GPA - 3.2 from a small liberal arts college (double major Accounting & Information Systems)

WE - 5.5 years (Senior Accountant - major private equity fund)
EC - Volunteer for soup kitchen, organize an annual fundraiser for a non-profit
Recs - One from supervisor, one from supervisor's supervisor. I had an excellent year end performance review. So, I am hoping the recs were excellent as well.
Essays - For Essay 3, I sent a couple of objects with a couple of sentences on how each relate to my personal and professional life. For Essays 1 & 2, I did not beat around the bush. I gave succinct reasons for parttime MBA and very focused short-term and long-term goals.

Both my GPA and GMAT score are slightly lower than average. So, I am counting on recs, essays and good luck.

Good luck to all.


I think you are more than middle of the range for part time students. I think you have a very good shot at the program. Particularly I assume you are not limited to the weekend program only like many others.


I am limited to Washington Square weeknight program only. That's a good thing I guess.

24 (almost 25, birthday this week)/F/White
GPA - 3.47
GMAT - 710
WE - 3 years (operations and wealth management for large firm)
EC - Volunteer for WiN (Women's Initiative Network), WiN Diversity, StreetWise Program
Recs - One from supervisor, one from investment representative and one from former manager
Essays - Pretty direct for the first two and more artistic and expressive with Essay III

I have been reading the posts and wanted to include my information and let you know if I hear anything regarding admission to NYU Langone Program. I am applying for weeknights at Washington Square.

Also Drsparnum, I thought Rutgers was still taking applications until June 1. Please help me understand the process a bit. Thanks!

langone2009

Thank you so much for joining the feed. I think a number of us are wondering how you were notified and an approximate timeline of the process last year. Can you also let us know what your GMAT and academic scores were when you applied?

I also have a few other questions. How quickly are you anticipating completing your MBA? When do you have to pick a specialization and have you done so yet? I submitted my FAFSA application and will need financial aid for the program. Do you have any insights into this process and advice on how to go about it?

Thanks again.

Hey langone2009! Thanks for stopping by.

I share a lot of questions with BskoolHopeful so I am looking forward to hearing what you have to say on that.

I'd love to know: What were your stats when you applied? What did you write your 3rd essay about?

In terms of the actual program, how is your Core Group? Are you a member of any of the on campus clubs?

And for the actual content: How is your workload? Are there a lot of tests?

Do you work full-time? If so, do you have any tips on managing a full-time work schedule with homework, group study sessions, etc?

One year in, do you feel like Langone was the right choice? Has the coursework been relevant enough for you to apply to the workplace?

I think that is all I will ask for now!

I applied for the May 15th deadline and was actually notified 2 weeks later on June 2nd. I got an email telling me to check my status and there was the congrats letter, which they also mailed I hard copy of. I hadn't expected to hear so soon, so didn't believe it until I got the letter. I only applied to Westchester since I live and work here.
My GMAT was 650 (98th percentile verbal, much lower quant.) I had a 2.8 GPA but I am a little older so work experience (15 years+) was a big factor, also great recs and essays. I knew my quant skills were lacking and I was pure liberal arts undergrad so took a stats class and macroeconomics class at community college while applying, got A's in both. If you have never had calculus take a course or brush up because you are going to need it, I am actually take a course now to prepare for my finance class this summer.
There is no time limit on selecting a specialization, you don't even have to choose one every one graduates with an MBA in General Management. You can have up to 3 specializations. You need to complete 9 credits of course work for each one. I am going the strategy / marketing route.
FIll out your FAFSA that is the first step to getting AID, it will go to Stern and once you are accepted they will begin figuring out which loans you qualify for. No scholarships for part time unfortunately.
I am due to graduate in May 2012, but may slow it down a little and not take classes next summer, we'll see.
Hope that answers your questions, I know wiating is the hardest part, but hopefully you'll hear good news.

langone 2009 - we greatly appreciate your detailed input.

I have a few questions.

1) Based on the admitted students, how does you class distribution look like? I mean in terms of number of finance folks vs number of engineers vs number of small business owner vs number of folks in other professions?

2) What was the attrition like at Stern after first year?

3) Did a lot of folks receive early admission like you did by first week of June or were you out of the norm because of your impressive work experience?

4) Do you know approximately what percentage of folks are employer sponsored and what percentage of them are self sponsored?

5) Any crazy commute stories in your class?
