  • Please adhere to the essay word limits provided for each question.
  • Word limits apply to the total question. For example, your response to Essay 1 should answer part (a), part (b) and part (c) with a total maximum of 750 words.
  • Label the top of each essay with the following: Name, Date of Birth (month, day, year), Essay Number and Page Number (e.g.: Joe Applicant, January 1, 1983, Essay 1, Page 1).
  • Your essays should be written entirely by you. An offer of admission will be revoked if you did not write your essays.

(500 word maximum, double-spaced, 12-point font)

The mission of the Stern School of Business is to develop people and ideas that transform the challenges of the 21st century into opportunities to create value for business and society. Given today’s ever-changing global landscape, Stern seeks and develops leaders who thrive in ambiguity, embrace a broad perspective and think creatively about the range of ways they can have impact.

(a) Describe two different and distinct paths you could see your career taking long term. How do you see your two paths unfolding?
(b) How do your paths tie to the mission of NYU Stern?
(c) What factors will most determine which path you will take?

Essay 3. Personal Expression
Please describe yourself to your MBA classmates. You may use almost any method to convey your message (e.g. words, illustrations). Feel free to be creative.

If you submit a non-written piece for Essay 3 (i.e., artwork or multimedia) or if you submit Essay 3 via mail, please upload a brief description of your submission with your online application.

Please note the following guidelines and restrictions:

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?

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.

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?

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.
