Hello All!
I am currently an undergrad and I have recently decided to take a serious look into Stern as my post graduate route.

I plan on taking the GMAT (as opposed to the GRE) but I am very bad at Math. I actually have not taken Math since High School which I know sounds really bad. I have never taken anything above algebra actually. At my school there are two math or math-like core requirements under the category of "Quantitative". For this requirement I took Logic, and for the 2nd class I will be taking a 300-level Research course. Of course most of the classes that fulfill this specific core requirement are actual Math courses, but I found the two that were not math and decided to take those instead. I've thought about taking Math classes to brush up and at least get to Calculus for my own enrichment but I dont want to risk my GPA. I would also have to take a lot of pre-req math courses to get to that level since I have not had any college level Math and I dont have the time. I am a double major AND double minor who has taken 2 years off school already so....yea.

Anyway, I am a pretty dedicated person and since the time for me to apply to the Stern MBA program would not be until Fall 2014 or maybe even Fall 2015 I've decided there is no harm in starting the GMAT studying now. Especially because of my low math skills. This would also allow me to take it a few times if needed.

I was just wondering if any one already admitted to the MBA program who has been in this situation or know someone who has, could give me any studying tips? While this exam may be easy for some, I know this type of material does not come natural for everyone. If you struggled with the GMAT and still made in into the Stern MBA program I would love to hear your story. I have heard of people scoring in the 500s and then studying their aes off to come back and score in the mid 700s. I plan on buying the entire Manhattan GMAT prep package which runs a few hundred dollars. Do you think this would be helpful? It seems to be the go-to source for the GMAT. I was thinking with this I could gauge how much work I need and take my questions to a tutor here at my school. With over a year of studying there is no reason why I should do badly on the exam.

It is a little intimidating going into this with a pool of Finance majors and what not but when I am dedicated I am dedicated and failure is no option. I dont mind putting the time and money into this but first I need to know I am going about it the best way.

Thank you for any responses in advance!!

Sorry if this post is out of place. I figured this would be the best possible venue.

I'm in for either R1 or R2.

This is bit of an amateur-ish question, but can someone please highlight to me what exactly is the pros/cons to applying in R1 as opposed to R2? Do applicants only apply in R2 if they feel they can improve their profile in the time spanning between the deadlines? Do applicants also apply in R2 if they feel that the applicant pool in R1 will be too strong? How can one weigh those factors though?

Highwyre, is that a Norwich Terrier in your pic? I have two!

She's a Cairn Terrier, but was the runt of the litter, only 11.5 lbs SO, she's pretty much a norwich .

Still trying to figure out if she'll make a cameo in essay 3 if I go the video route.

There's a no cosigner loan for international students at the moment that offers up to \$40k for the academic year, for use against tuition/fees only.

I'm about to apply for my second year. Can't say for sure if it's available for the new class, but can't see any reason it wouldn't be. To be sure you should just ask the Financial Aid office.

Hey everyone, not much going on in this thread. Just letting everyone know, I updated the 1st post with a link to a great interview posted by Clear Admit. It is a Q&A with Isser Gallogly, assistant dean of MBA admissions at New York University’s Stern School of Business.

Where do students typically live? The cost of living in NYC is atrocious. Are there nearby towns that students commute from that have people calling them "Stern towns"?

What would you say sets Stern apart from Columbia?

If this helps in any way, I have posted my experiences from NYU Stern's Bangalore Information Session here.

Students typically live around campus. However, this depends on whether you already have family/partners. There are a lot of people who commute from Jersey or stay away from campus in one of the Burrows.

I agree, the cost of living is atrocious. But you are paying for Access! This has been the most important tool for networking. At Stern, you are more connected to the business world than any other school.

For your last question, I will tell you two things for now - The NYU Stern application, interview and post-admit communication was more personalized than any other school. For Stern, you are NOT just another admit. Also, Stern places more emphasis on the EQ (i know it sounds like a stupid term). This EQ is nothing both how social, friendly, down-to-earth and normal you are.
