Hows the Langone Program compared with the Kellogg and Booth PT MBA program? Does anybody have any ideas?

Oh I also wanted to mention that there is an online chat tonight with two Langone students and someone from the Career Center. Check your e-mails and I hope to see/hear some of you there tonight.

hey ukyo,

i'm not sure what other people are doing but i dived right into answering the question, with a brief intro. with the 250 word limit, there isnt much room to give too much history or go into too much details about your short and long-term goals. i focused more on the short-term goal, meaning wrote more on that part. hope this helps.

I agree with the last response. Be very specific as to how your classes and the MBA will help your career in the short term as well as the long term. Also give specific examples of what you are able to offer to the program.

I have a question. I plan to apply for the Fall deadline, my application is fairly complete with the exception of the GMAT. My recommendations are in and my essays are in the final draft. I had scheduled my GMAT for next Tuesday but condisdering to cancel since I am still not satisfied with my prep. This will be my second attempt on the test so really need to do well and be done with it. Do I stand a big disadvantage if take the GMAT in June and sent in my application then or should I just wait apply for the Spring? Your feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Hi Sensible265

I am not sure what your prep score is. But you maybe amazed by yourself in the real exam. I scored 650 in prep the day before GMAT and got final score 730. So be confident.
Plus, once you are above certain level of GMAT, I do not think it matters that much.

Ohhh Finally someone in the same boat as me... i don't know what the deal is with the essays for Stern. its the odd 250 word limit thats really buggin me for the first one. I can't tell my story and finish it in 250 words.... on the other hand if I decide to stick with goals only, the esaay looks vague and out-of-sync since I cannot really provide any background to go with the story!!! :evil:

Re: NYU Stern-Langone Fall 2010 - Essay Directness [#permalink] New post 12 May 2010, 13:05
Hello potential classmates,

Just putting the fine touches on all of my essays. Quick question: what has anyone heard about being frank w/regards to essays 2 and 4? For example, essay 2 asks why you want to get an MBA on a part-time basis.
Do you think it would hurt if I mention that I think the opportunity costs of foregone salary and tuition that would result from going full time would just be too much?

I'm writing essay #4 b/c I need to explain why I cannot get a recommendation letter from my direct manager. Does anyone think its wise/OK if I describe the unapproving political climate at work and the potential consequences that might result if I am discovered taking classes?

In short, in answering both essays, do you think its best to be direct and give truthful answers, or to play the game and give phony, upbeat-sounding answers?

Submitted everything last Saturday night after reviewing my essays like 100 times...OCD can set in quickly! The weird thing is that I got the application receipt email on 5/13, although the website says they won't start sending them out until after the deadline...
I'm a re-applicant from the Spring term (waitlisted until the very last day then rejected...), improved my gmat by 60 points (600 to 660, and confirmed my AWA of 6.0) and got a higher level position at my current company in the meantime...I've been really working hard on pursuing admission to Stern because that's where I really want to go.
How's everyone else doing?

Does any one know the approximate time frame when they would announce their decisions? I know the website says by August 5th.

How early do you guys think the admissions are going to be?

Based on BW forum

Last year some best candidates received their acceptance notices as early as June.

Most people were informed in July and August.

Only time will tell I guess. Did you explain the score in 4th essay? Perhaps you could retake GMAT.
