I'm in the same boat, with a recent R1 interview waiting.

To be fair they said 3-4 weeks, but like you guys I saw everyone the prior week had an answer within 7 days.

Probably working on R2 apps as well now, so slower to answer.

Congrats to all the admits!! Any advice for the interview? I haven't yet interviewed with an adcom member this year. How does it differ from one with a 2Y (generally speaking since I know all Stern interviews are done through adcom)?

I have only had adcom interviews so far, but it was pretty straight forward.

Clear Admit has tons of posts on questions asked, so I had reviewed those, they are pretty standard and mostly variations of the same question set. Adcom joked with me a bit, and then went through the questions, took about 40 minutes (probably I was too longwinded).

They have read your application, and had my resume in front of them. (only one interviewer).

Questions were roughly:

1. Resume Walkthrough
2. Why MBA and Why Stern
3. Challenge story, teamwork story, leadership story
4. Few questions about essays, specifically Essay 3.
5. Questions for them.


I think as long as you are prepare as you would for any interview, you should be fine.

Best of luck.

I will say, don't forget your transcript! I did and they said it would delay things which was fine, but it's been 2 weeks since my transcript was mailed and they still haven't processed it because it's probably stuck in a pile of Rnd 2 mail. In 5th grade a girl in my glass begged our English teacher for our grammar tests back, to which our teacher replied "um, [insert name here], you got an F". After witnessing that I swore to never beg for a result again. I feel like that now, don't want to push too hard for my decision and then get a ding. But seeing all of these people who interviewed way after me get their decisions is killing me!

Also with regards to the interview, I found it to be very relaxed and easy flowing. I think it was easier because the interviewer had read my app so she didn't really even have me walk her through my goals or work experience. She more asked me questions like "what do you like about your current job". Some others I remember:

- What is your back-up plan if you don't get into business school or job you want
- What would be your ideal company to intern for
- What clubs would you be involved in at Stern, how would you make your mark
- Obviously, Why Stern

I was impressed by how much she remembered from my app, a lot questions would start with a reference from my app and then build. So definitely review your app before the interview and know what you said! Good luck!

Hey guys, just got my invitation to interview on Stern Perspectives Diversity Day. Anyone else going to interview then? Anyone have any insight on the event?

Hey Krest19 -- first and foremost, congrats!

I'm also interviewing then -- I talked with a few former and current students who attended in the past, and they highly recommended leveraging this day rather than scheduling an earlier interview date. I understand that there is ample opportunity to connect with students, alumni and admissions officers, but haven't heard much about the formal structure of the day.

Regarding acceptance rate after interviews -- on the NYU website, it says anywhere from 20-25% of applicants are interviewed. Using last year's admission rate of 16% as a baseline, that would mean that your chances of getting in after receiving an interview invite fall between 60- 80%.

Received an acceptance notice yesterday as well! I was really suprised to hear back so quickly as I just had my interview on Jan 17th.

Has anyone who has been accepted recieved the official packet yet? The acceptance letter didn't have any information on timelines or when we should be looking out for it.

Congrats! Yes it seems they send the admits pretty quickly after interviews, roughly 4-5 days. Not bad! I got my official packet in the mail (with pretty much the same info as on the website) I think 3 days after the email notice. I suppose it could be slower if you live outside of NYC.

My interview experience was very good. The adcom member was very friendly and the interview was really a 30 minute conversation. If you truly believe in your career goals and that Stern is the best place to achieve those goals, I think the interview will take care of itself.

I received my interview invitation for Diversity Day last night. I'm looking forward to it.

I'll be moving to a different project at work in February, and I'm hoping I end up in the NYC area to make this trip easier.

I also received a invite to Stern Perspectives but the idea of waiting another month is killing me. I'm thinking about scheduling the interview in a few weeks so I can receive a decision.

Stern Women in Spot light [#permalink] New post 26 Jan 2013, 23:13
Did anyone chose to interview during the Stern Women in Spot Light week where they will also have the Women in Business conference on Friday 2/8?
I responded back in December as soon as received the invite, but haven't heard from them since regarding a detailed schedule/agenda.

I signed up for an interview + Mock class option. Anyone going there on Feb. 7&8 too?
I am based in California and will fly in redeye on Feb. 7.

Has anyone who interviewed last week received an admissions decision? The trend seemed to have been that decisions were released on the 2nd business day of the week, so I was hoping to hear something today. Anxiously waiting!

Keep your head up; it's not over until it's over!

Stern says their result date means you'll get some sort of a response by then -- that means invites can still go out, and last I saw, spots were open until the end of February. Based on the number of people receiving invites here, I'd say they still have about 2 weeks of spots still open.

It's certainly a long wait, but if you get the result you want, it'll be worth it. Good luck!
