Thank you for using the timer!

There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
Thank you so much. I'm sure more thread members will come out of the woodwork with more questions, but I really wanted to thank you in advance.
I do have one last question, which may not apply to you so much since you are self-employed but maybe you have seen it with members of your Core Group. Although the website stresses that PT is better for those that want to stay within their industry (or even job function), have you seen anyone use the Stern Alumni network or even the Career Center for Working Profressionals to switch jobs either during or at the end of the program? How often has it happened? Is it relatively "easy" to do so?
There are lots of people who switch, you just need to be proactive. You won't have acces to fulltim on campus recruiting, but CCWP is a resouirce that will help with your resume and interview skills. Also, join clubs that wre the industry you are interested in Marketing, Finance, Pharma, Media, etc. There are great conferences and speakers and wonderful networking opportunities. You aren't allowed to solicit alums, but you can get industry info from them, etc. So you can do it, you just need to be your own advocate.
I understand that all students graduate with a degree in general management. But is a typical class at NYU tilted to folks wishing to pursue a career in finance or is it balanced with all specializations?
the on-campus recruiting is one of the disadvantages and the articles or blogs also mention that the PT students are discriminated by the stuff and full-time students. anyway, can you share the feedback and experiences that you have about the Langone program @ NYU? thanks!
Apparently, the acceptances should be rolling in for some any minute now. I've read in a couple of places that that high GPA/high GMAT hear in June, mid GPA/mid-GMAT hear in early July, and then the rest hear in the final two weeks of July.
But of course that is just speculation. Just some food for thought.
If anyone has heard, make sure to post it on the thread. I think knowing that they are sending out admits will quell my nerves for a bit.
Memorial Day was so necessary for me. Kind of sad to be back at work, but it's a 4 day week. WOO-HOO!
Sorry for the double post, but I just checked my status (because I'm a mascochist) and one thing jumped at me: the page mentions that if you submitted a complete application by May 15, 2010, then you will receive a decision on or before August 1st. If not, then you're decision may be delayed.
So, how long does it take for NYU to notify that an application is incomplete? Or should we be on top of that? I didn't even know you could submit an incomplete application???
it's good to know that any incompleteness in the application would have been communicated by now. I guess it's going to be just waiting from now on.
Langone2009, What's the composition of the weekend batch like, experience-and-location-wise? What's the demand for the weekend option like, given the fewer number of seats? When do students get together for group activities etc?
I have talked to some alumni from several years ago, and they mentioned that some classes (not core, but desirable electives) might be available only during daytime. Will ones core-group become an issue if one registers for a daytime elective, as they could end up getting split during elective enrollments?
Another question I had - from what you have seen, what is the number/fraction of students with 10+ yeas of experience in a batch? I have read here and elsewhere that Stern does welcome candidates in that range, so I am not concerned about that being of any negative impact in the admissions. Still, it will be helpful to know in what range, etc.
>>They actually read essay #3, they are not torturing you for nothing.
:) That one essay remains the same (word-limits, focus etc) across full-time and part-time applications, right?
I went through three versions of it and eliminated the ones that seemed less balanced, as far as introducing/describing myself was concerned. I guess this one 'essay' (and answer modes) is somewhat unique to Stern, unless you count the power point required for Booth(?).
Langone2009, how does Stern review the Langone applications, if that's something you can share? Do they go through a single committee/group, or several levels of review, with each one trimming the pool progressively? Just being curious I guess.
