Hi

Amitlak...I got in today the Washington Square Weekend program.

And yes, there is a deadline ST...you have 3 weeks from the day you get accepted to make a $2000 deposit.

And there is also another registration process/tour. I don't know what this tour entails, but both of these things (deposit + registration) must be completed by 8/10/10.

Good luck to everyone!!!!!

congrats to everyone who got in! hopefully the following days will bring more good news to the the rest of us.

A request/suggestion: could those who post the acceptance news post a quick one line summary of their profile as well in the signatures of their announcement?

Wonder how the offers will be going out - like, every day after today, little by little , or another bunch a few days later? How many went out today, what percentage, I wonder?
As expected, there are more offers being made to the weeknights program compared to the weekend one, going by the posts and assuming that gmatclub is a very popular forum.

PS: @ST1705: I will pray for the chance to join in the cup-cake celebration you will be hosting at Stern this Fall for all of us :)

Congratulations to everyone who's been accepted. One note on the "database" of students - it most likely won't be available until a week or so before orientation. I was accepted last fall and that was my experience.

What do you mean by the following statement:

"When you apply you rank order which program options you want to be considered for (weekends, weeknights or westchester), you can also only apply to one or two if you want. You are only accepted into one program option. You will take your core classes in that program. After two semesters you can take classes in the other program options if space is available, after 5 semesters (which include fall, spring, summer) you can register for classes in weeknights, weekends or westchester. "

I thought there was one application for the PT MBA program and you rank your choice of preference (weekends, weeknights or westchester). So, if you did not exclude a choice, shouldn't they evaluate your application for all three options?

In the instruction it says if you are unable to attend for one option, you should not put it there. Since weekend is the only option for me, I did not choose the other two.

You can certainly put all three there and rank them, they will evaluate your application for all three I think.

It's one application, but a question asking you to rank order your choices. You will only be considered for the options you rank order. You can only do one, or do two or do all three, but you have to express a preference.

Seems like it's gone quiet...

Does anyone know if they'll send out acceptances every few days, or if they're going to wait until the 3-week "acceptance period" has passed for the people who've already rec'd letters?

I wish I knew but am preparing myself for the worst...

This is a competitive year with lots of uncertainty in the job market. My guess is that most credible applicants will consider the PT program more seriously and hang on to their jobs whilst pursuing an MBA. There is no guarantee where the job market will be headed two years down the road.

I hope I am wrong on this though...

So I took langone2009's advice and have been perusing the website for additional information. The Fall 2010 class schedule is up and you can see it here.

http://w4.stern.nyu.edu/registrar/schedules/2010FallPT1.html

Based on the class selection, what would your ideal Core Group be?

I'm going to go with Orange simply because I have an aversion to all thing Stat related. I had a horrific experience with it in undergrad.

Hi arruhbee, Hi langone2009 (thanks so much for your responsiveness to this forum and for all of your insight!)

Congrats to all that have been accepted!!! I've been monitoring this post for a while now, and couldn't resist the urge not to jump in. Please forgive the onslaught of questions that I'm about to ask.

Like many others on this post, I still haven't heard a response yet, and I'm starting to get anxious. NYU obviously accepts and
notifies the top tier candidates right away. Today was pretty quiet, and I assume that the adcom is now embarking on a wait-and-see strategy. My question is - are all applications holistically ranked before any acceptance offers go out? If so, does NYU then just simply go down the totem pole and send out acceptances in short bursts? Or is there another method of how they make their way down the rank list? i.e., do they do it according to GMAT score, where those who scored 700+ are the first to get evaluated & notified before they even begin to look at GMATs, say, between 650 and 690 range? Would an average GMAT score even have the chance of making the first cut for either Wash. Sq. weekends or nights? Please tell me if my assumptions are totally off base.

Thanks!

Hello, all!

I got notification on Monday that I have been accepted! I am very happy (now I have to figure out how to cover the costs!). All the way down this message are my "credentials".

To those who are anxious to hear from the school, take a deep breath and calm down.This was just the first wave of acceptance communications. Remember that the PT program is not nearly as competitive as the FT-equivalent, and roughly every other applicant gets accepted (~50%). So if your scores are decent, your professional history is alright, you have a very good shot at it.

Good luck to all!!

GMAT: 700, AWA 6.0
GPA: 3.8 (Ohio State)

Upsilon4,

Sorry I don't know how the admissions process works to the degreee that you've asked. All I can say is it is holisitic. I had a 650 GMAT and heard first round last summer. As you can see SternGirl 2010 has a 720 GMAT and 3.9 GPA (sorry to singel you out) and hasn't heard yet. It really is holistic, it's not about a certain GMAT score or GPA. You guys need to stop putting so much weight on GMAT scores. In my opinion you need a complete application that tells a great story of who you are and how you will contribute to stern and why it is the place for you as evidenced through essays, while high GMAT/GPA is helpful it is not the be all and end all.
Adcom has until Aug 1st to notify you, so stop freaking out or it will be a long summer!

wow, someone here in the US likes WorldCup, that is good.

I too hope WorldCup can keep me away from my email for a while.
