still no westchester admits?

It's surprising. May be people who got in to Westchester campus are not accessing this forum. If someone knows anybody who got admitted to Westchester, please share with us.

I would consider myself well rounded with great WE, but my GMAT score sucks. I got a 590 the first time and a 620 the second time. But I guess the adcom did weigh all parts of the application and I guess my other factors counted.

GPA: Undergraduate 3.7 in Political Science (honors program) from US top-30 institution (US News, National University rankings)
GPA: Masters 3.9 International Relations from a US top-5 program (Foreign Policy, IR rankings)
GMAT: ???
WE in consulting for ~2 years (first at large management consulting firm, now at a well-regarded market research firm), ~5 years as military officer pre-Masters
Background: white male, US military veteran/officer (Afghanistan veteran)

I'm no expert but looking at the admits from the past 2 years, I notice that they do accept people with Gmat scores close to 600 if they have good work exp. and a strong profile. So i would say if you can get, at least, their lower range then you should apply. I'm not sure if this will help but i scored a 700 and i'll probally not get in, so i would say study hard for the GMAT but don't forget about the rest.

Hope this helps.

aj2112, asaf650 -- sorry to hear the news, but wanted to tell you that I was also rejected the first time I applied and resubmitted for fall and was just accepted. Still had a low gmat, but my score had improved from my first application. Also -- I took courses toward a certificate program at NYU's SCPS, so even though I didn't get into Stern, this time around I was able to make the argument that I still began studies through this extension program to better prepare myself for business school. If you do decide to apply again and can tell a story about how you've improved, I think you'll have a good shot. Don't get discouraged!

thanks for the words of encouragement solstice12!

i am definitely going to retake the gmat and would take on a class at a community college, but am concerned i won't have ample time considering applications for spring are due on September 15. however, i can complete a class and apply on a rolling basis (after the deadline). when was the first time you applied? for the spring semester or for last fall's semester?

asaf650, your profile says you live in SF, do you live there now? I lived in SF until 3 weeks ago and three days after I moved to NYC and changed my address on the Stern website to an NYC address, I was accepted. I'm not sure if that was a coincidence or not, but I do think that the adcom wants to make sure that applicants have a plan in place about how they are going to move to new york, how that affects their career, etc.

Rona0521, yes, I live in SF at the moment. My plan was to relocate upon admission to Stern. I got prior consent from my management to relocate since the company I work for has a presence in NYC (through sales offices and prior acquisitions) and I can do my job from one of the two offices in Manhattan. I thought I did a pretty good job of explaining this in Essay 3, but I guess it wasn't enough. I'm convinced it was my GMAT score that sold me short.

Thanks for your feedback. I hope you're going through a smooth transition in NYC. :)

Sorry to hear the news, asaf and aj! I would definitely encourage you to work on whatever you think would improve your chances next semester and re-apply. There are so many re-applicant success stories. So, keep hope alive and work your butt off in the meantime. We're rooting for ya.

Is it recommended to submit the resume as per Stern's Resume Format? Does the resume has to be 1 page?

Hi Everyone!! Can you please, please, please share the current headcount on the Stern part-time mba group? I applied before the deadline (May 15th) and have not heard a word yet. Do you think there is still hope or tomorrow would be pretty much a "No" day? Any insights will be helpful!! Thanks!
