I think you are mistaken. All summer start means is you start in july and take 2 classes in the summer, while the rest of the normal class joins you in august. Then in the first semester you take one less class, because you've already done it in the past summer. Once the fall semester starts, all summer start students are on completely the same path as everyone else, same semesters, same internship, same graduation...

Yeah...I just read about it. You are right. Sounds like it's even harder to get into the summer start because you have to have special leadership potential - so I guess it's great that you got invited for summer start! Hopefully that means that you have slightly better chances than the regular candidates!

Hi All-

Happy to report that I have been invited to interview for summer start after being waitlisted all the way back in early Round 1 (November I believe.)!

Hi jpd5044, can you please share which steps you took after being waitlisted? Did you send them any additional information? Just wondering if you did something special that cought their attention or if your original application was enough. I was interviewed already, so not sure how relevant this would be for me, but just want to know if you did anything else after being waitlisted. Thank you!

I had an additional recommendation sent in, and sent in an update via email every 5-6 weeks or so, just checking in and staying in front of them. I also went up for a class visit a few weeks after I was waitlisted, which I think may have helped to show my interest. Hope that helps!

I tried to make sure everything I sent in provided some kind of value, which is why I only sent updates every5-6 weeks instead of every 3 or so. I did write a little something after I visited class.

Hi - did you do anything to get off the waitlist (ie. further recommendations, retake tests) or did they contact you regardless?

hi ek, I have a 730 and a 3.4, and I applied round 1 and was interviewed then waitlisted after interview in december. I'm a career switcher and I dont think I sold them on my career switch well enough during my interview. I took your advice and explained this in my letter of commitment, and then I also had a stern alumni send a recommendation. I think that I was able to hit on my career switch weaknesses in my letter and make them feel more comfortable that I have a plan to make the switch. I also was able to get advice from an mba ambassador on how to make the career switch and it was very helpful, and I referenced this in my letter.

Hi Financefella, thank you for sharing this. I am a career switcher as well, but in my supplemental letters to them I only explained which steps I took to realize that my targeted new career is exactly what I want to do. I did not really clarify what plan I have to make that happen other then first get my MBA and participate in relevant school activities (professional clubs, conferences, networking with employers, etc.) MBA program is my step number one in my switching plan.
How did you present your plan? Did you actually have specific steps you would do to make the switch in addition to getting your MBA first? I guess I might have to explain to the committee the same thing but not sure how to approach this. Thank you!

Hi Ek, I think that you explain it well in your supplemental letter, but at least for me they probably thought that my primary career goal was not realistic right after school. I spoke to them in my interview about a couple of career paths, and in my letter I clarified that when I got to school I would take advantage of the career development stern offers, and then pursue one path first and the other is more of a long term goal. I think the professional clubs they have are also very helpful, for me it was the Graduate Finance association, and I stressed that I would take advantage of that club to help me realize my goals. I can give you more specifics on my exact career plan and how I presented to Stern, but would prefer if you private message me. Hope this is helpful.

Did anybody get an invitation to interview after being waitlisted without interview in round 1/2? The website says they will start evaluating their wait list in early spring. Dunno what qualifies as early spring. I called the school, but the person I spoke to was not sure either. This wait is seriously exhausting!!

Hi anupam4424, I was waitlisted after the interview, but know that a lot of people are getting waitlisted before the interview. I also know that they already started reviewing the WL. Looks like some people got invites for interview in February and some have already gotten admitted in March. So looks like they are already in the process of reviewing the waitlist.

Hi anupam4424, I applied round 2 (11/15) and was wait-listed in January without an interview. I recently received the invite to interview. Hang in there, it's a long process but well worth it!

I am a R1 applicant and was waitlisted without an interview at Stern. I got an admit from Ross. I had submitted few essays to Stern but haven;t received any feedback. Should I send an email to the adcom committee asking for updates or should I just wait? Ross Vs Stern what do you guys think? My main area of focus is entrepreneurship

I am in the same boat. Haven't heard back from them at all. Out of curiosity, when did you submit your updates?
