ukyo, where do you see 33 core courses? i only see 9 (under "do i have to take the entire core" in the student tour)

on a related note, how many courses are you guys planning on waiving?
i was thinking of waiving out of 5...but i don't know if i'll be missing out on stuff by waiving so many.

Random question (and not sure if anybody has an answer): is it harder to get into the Spring start of Fall start? I know more students are accepted in the Fall, but do more students also apply then too?

Again, this info may not be public

Sorry, I stated it incorrectly.
The Stern MBA is 60 credits; 33 credits are core classes.

Wow, 5 courses? What was your major?

I am waiving out of 0 as I was a Foreign Languages major in college. Yay liberal arts.

i was a comp sci major so i can't waive them that way, but i'm a CFA charterholder and a lot of the core courses materials seem to overlap with the CFA material.
i don't know if i will try to waive all 5...maybe i'm being overly zealous. it's just that the electives sound so much more interesting than say, stats or financial accounting. sigh.

As an FYI - I called the bursar's office and they were very helpful in breaking down the cost... keep in mind tuition will increase by average of 5% each academic year.

I also found the Tuition tab on the Bursar homepage helpful...

I'm calculating about $108k between Tuition, Fees and Books for completing 60 credits over 2.5 years including the roughly 5% inc. for tuition each year... not cheap - but roughly what I was expecting.

- At a high-level... appears it's pretty much 2 classes a week (6pm - 9pm) for duration of program - am I understanding that right?
- Where does the schoolID for Kroll come from?

Very excited to meet everyone!!!




I am confused by this...this link breaks the costs down to much less...(I cannot post the link but google "NYU 2010-2011 Budget for Langone Student" and you should find it... it would cost 60k according to this, because I am not including room and board to my expenses since I would have those anyway and will be working full time.

Passed the Quant Assessment a few days ago on my first try with minimal effort! Have to say, the questions are much easier than the practice ones.


Does anyone know how long the Kroll process takes? I received an email from them a few days ago letting me know that they've begun their background check on me. So, just wondering if anyone knows how long it usually takes after you receive that email.

Called Bursar earlier today and they confirmed that they've got my tuition for Fall 2010, so almost completely set!


Congrats to all the new admits!!!

The simplest calculation is based on the tuition per credit (which is $1,560)... multiply $1,560 by 60 credits and it comes out to $93,600. That doesn't take into account ~5% annual increase, fees, books, etc. So that's a minimum. You can always call the bursar's office to get more info...

today,

I am also in the process of getting my CFA charter. I was also wondering if I would learn a lot taking Stats or Financial accounting. Seniors do you have any advice on how useful Stats is in the overall curriculum ?

Thanks.

My understanding is that we'll actually get an email from either Kroll or Stern MBA Admissions (not sure which) that actually tells us that the background check is complete. Your status will also change on the link where you originally found your online offer letter (that currently says "We've received your enrollment deposit. Please initiate the background check...").

I got an email from Kroll stating that they started the process a week ago today, so I'm hoping it's done soon.

hi brohan,
i would imagine it's about as useful as it was in the CFA curriculum. which is to say, necessary to understand the concepts and the basic calculations, but we wouldn't need to know it in quite as much depth. that's just my guess though, maybe the current students can provide more insight.

what level are you on? i'm thinking of going back over the level 1 books to refresh my memory.

today, I sat for the level 2 exam this June. I am thinking of giving the waiver exams for Stats and Financial A/c and decide based on how comfortable I feel with the subjects and the exam results. What about you ?

I sent my info into Kroll 3 weeks ago and still haven't heard back from them or from NYU Stern. Has anyone heard back?

Thank you

i'm definitely going to try to waive out of stats and accounting, and maybe also firms&markets and finance.
you're definitely at an advantage over me with the material fresh in your memory, especially with level 2 and accounting. it's been a couple years since i've looked at the material.
